LOS ANGELES — Although they may daydream of sitting with Bella in the Forks High cafeteria or running through the trees with Edward, most “Twilight” fans have never had the opportunity to actually meet the famous faces who’ve come to personify Stephenie Meyer’s creations onscreen. Now, a newly announced “Twilight” tour will bring thousands of these fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to converse with a Cullen.
“This November, Summit Entertainment invites ‘Twilight’ fans to the [movie id="414921"]‘Twilight Saga: New Moon’[/movie] cast tour, visiting 15 cities nationwide,” the studio behind the franchise announced in a press release late Friday (October 23).
The “New Moon” cast will spread out nationwide from November 6 through 15, appearing at various malls in a move that echoes the crowd-pleasing festivities that accompanied spring’s DVD release of the first film. In fact, the tour kicks off at Los Angeles’ Hollywood & Highland complex, where hundreds of screaming fans greeted Ashley Greene in March.
“The nationwide tour will kick off in Los Angeles, California, at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Friday, November 6 with a special event open to the public, where fans will be treated with performances by several bands featured on ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ soundtrack,” the statement explained, listing “scheduled to include” acts like Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina, Sea Wolf and Band of Skulls.
At each of the events’ 15 city stops, Twilighters will be treated to activities, games, Q&As with the cast and in many cities performances by the bands on the “New Moon” soundtrack.
“Fans who acquire VIP credentials on October 31 will be granted access to a special event with select castmembers at their respective malls,” the press release goes on to say. “For the chance to register and meet castmembers, fans need to visit Hot Topic or select Nordstrom stores at 8 a.m. on October 31 at one of the participating mall locations. They will be given access to return and meet select castmembers at that same mall on the assigned scheduled date and time. VIP credentials provided on October 31 are limited, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to those who make qualifying purchases. VIP credentials are non-transferable.”
