No Comment 22 Views

The musical video game phenomenon of Rock Band™ is coming to a city near you. This fall Rock Band Live ( will travel across the country with headline acts Panic At The Disco and Dashboard Confessional, together on stage, with very special guests Plain White T’s, The Cab, and possibly YOU!

The concert tour will let Rock Band bands rock their way onto the main stage with a truly interactive experience that allows fans to compete in head-to-head competitions for the chance to play on the main stage in-between the tour acts’ sets. Bands will be selected through local radio promotions, national contests and on-site at each show.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the public on Friday, August 8th at 10:00AM local time. The tour will kick off on October 5th in San Diego, CA and continue through November 14th ending in Houston, TX.

“Rock Band Live brings together a terrific combination of artists for a night of rock ’n roll love,” said Paul DeGooyer, MTV’s Senior Vice President of Electronic Games & Music. “The bands are fantastic, the timing dovetails perfectly with the release of Rock Band 2, and the events will be tons of interactive fun for families.”

“We’re huge fans of Rock Band and feel honored to join the Rock Band 2 game disc setlist with some of our favorite artists like The Who, Bob Dylan and Journey!” said Panic At The Disco’s Brendon Urie. “And what better way to celebrate our involvement with the game than joining the first Rock Band tour. We’re definitely excited to be a part of things”

"I’m practicing my Rock Band drumming," deadpanned Dashboard Confessional singer Chris Carrabba, "With any luck I’ll win a spot on stage to show what I can REALLY do."

Panic At The Disco will be featured on the Rock Band 2 game disc coming out this September. In addition, all Rock Band Live tour acts will be featured in a forthcoming downloadable content pack for the game.
