Last week, Summit Entertainment made big news when they announced a countrywide tour that would bring “Twilight” stars — as well as many of the bands on the “New Moon” soundtrack — to a mall near you. Now the details are emerging like a vampire stepping into the bright afternoon sun — and the results are just as sparkly.
The “New Moon” Hot Topic tour kicks off November 6 in Los Angeles’ Hollywood & Highland complex. It will feature musical performances by Death Cab for Cutie, Band of Skulls, Sea Wolf and Anya Marina. The day’s festivities will also feature a Q&A session with castmembers Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jamie Campbell Bower, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Chaske Spencer and Bronson Pelletier. You can find out more details on how to get in at the Hot Topic Web site or the sister site ShockHound.
After the big L.A. kickoff, the cast will head in separate directions. Ashley and Kellan will head to Chicago’s Fox Valley Mall for November 10th, where their Q & A with fans will be accompanied by an Anya Marina performance. Meanwhile, Charlie Bewley and Daniel Cudmore will spend the same day in Philadelphia at the Cherry Hill Mall, alongside Hurricane Bells.
A good time will definitely be had in Minneapolis on November 12, as two of the more fun-loving members of the “Twilight” clan — Edi Gathegi and Jamie Campbell Bower — will be holding court at the Mall of America. They’ll be accompanied by the hardworking Anya Marina. If anybody can send us footage of Edi and Jamie on the SpongeBob ride, you’ll be my new hero.
On the same day, Ashley and Kellan will bring their party to Boston’s Natick Collection Mall, where they’ll appear with Hurricane Bells. Charlie Bewley and Daniel Cudmore will be blanketing the other side of the country on that day as well, at Seattle’s Westfield Southcenter, with musical guest Anya Marina.
The Hot Topic events wind down in Salt Lake City, where something tells me a Twilight Mom or two might be able to make it to the Fashion Place Mall to see Edi and Jamie tell some fun stories. They’ll be accompanied on that final date of the tour by Anya Marina.
For those wondering, a similar event has been rumored to be in the works at New York’s Times Square Hot Topic on November 19. Details for that date, if it is to occur, should be announced shortly.
