Eagles of Death Metal at Hollywood and Highland

October 24, 2008 at 9:24 pm (Hollywood Store) (, , , )

I’m April Windsor, and I manage the regional marketing efforts for our California stores. My favorite part of the job is managing our awesome in-store events with artists from all genres. Check out our latest Hollywood & Highland concert below…..

Tonight we hosted a special live performance & signing with local favorite, Eagles of Death Metal. Eagles of Death Metal played an awesome show – Virgin Megastore Hollywood & Highland was transformed in to a real live concert venue! Not that this was the first time, but I was really impressed how the event came together tonight. The band proved to be a truly solid rock ‘n’ roll band, and were very personable with their fans, getting them pumped about the music from stage – they had everyone dancing! They started off the night with a 45 minute set, playing to over 150 fans. All of the band members thought the in-store was great and said they would love to come back any time, if we would have them. Very cool!

This event was in conjunction with the new Rock Star Games video game, Midnight Club Los Angeles, which our Hollywood store and Eagles of Death Metal are featured in. Fans had two options: Pre-order the game, receive 2 wristbands, pre-order the upcoming EofDM album, Heart On, and receive 1 wristband. With each pre-order, fans were given an Eagles of Death Metal poster and free 10” vinyl for the signing.

Thanks to everyone who helped put this event together, especially Rock Star Games, the H&H store team, and Fontana and Rocket Science for hopping on the bandwagon and providing the great GWP’s.

Virgin offers “To Go” orders at Hollywood Megastore

July 29, 2008 at 8:03 pm (Hollywood Store) (, , , )

Not sure if you’re like me, but at times I loathe parking. It actually keeps me from venturing out to shop — well, okay that’s a bit of an exaggeration. However…we have been brainstorming a fun new way to make our DVDs, Video Games, CDs, books, etc “To Go” and are trying it out at our Hollywood Virgin Megastore. We all know that parking in Hollywood can be trying so now you can just call, email or fax your order into our store. In just a few minutes we will be waiting curbside with your purchases. Not too bad huh? We thought this might come in handy for studio execs or even the ever-busy LA shopper. When you call you just need to have your credit card, pick up time and make/model of your car and a Megastore Shopper will place your order and bring it out to you! To place your order you can:

Email: curbsideservice@virginmega.com
Fax: 323-469-9677
or call: 323-769-8520, ext. 2401

We start the service this week! We are only offering it at the Hollywood and Highland location for now — but try it out!

In the spirit of Brit Week, Joss Stone made an impromptu visit to our Hollywood & Highland store this weekend, after our very own Simon Wright convinced her to do so the night before at an event where they met. Thanks Simon! We had little time to get the word out, but still the crowds packed the store. Joss sang two songs with her guitarist and then sat down to sign CD’s for several fans. She was very sweet and happy to take photos with anyone who came up to meet her. This girl has talent to spare – definitely worthy of a courtyard concert outside our store at the mall at Hollywood and Highland – perhaps for her next release?! Thanks Joss for stopping in our store!
