Next week sees the beginning of one of the biggest, heaviest tours of the fall, as Alice in Chains will team up with Deftones and Mastodon for BLACKDIAMONDSKYE. The turned-to-11 festivities kick off next Thursday, September 16 at Chicago's Charter One Pavilion, and if you want to get close — and we mean really, really close — to the show, then you should definitely enter the MTV BLACKDIAMONDSKYE contest!
All you need to do is create your very own trailer for BLACKDIAMONDSKYE. You can pick up some official assets here to get you started, but feel free to incorporate whatever you like into your entry. The only stipulations? They have to be less than one minute long, they have to include the official BLACKDIAMONDSKYE URL and — most importantly — they have to be inventive and interesting. The men from Alice in Chains will be choosing the best entry themselves, so you better use your most innovative ideas and stretch your imagination to the limit. Use this opportunity to express what will make BLACKDIAMONDSKYE the hottest ticket of the season.
What's in it for you? Glad you asked. One grand prize winner will score a pair of VIP tickets to any BLACKDIAMONDSKYE date of his or her choosing, a limited-edition tour poster signed by all three bands, a personalized gold record commemorating Alice in Chains' latest opus Black Gives Way to Blue and a meet-and-greet session with the boys from Alice in Chains. That's a must-have set of treats for any fan of AIC — or any fan of hard rock in general.
But we're not done giving things away. Three runners-up will each get a pair of tickets to any BDS tour stop and an autographed tour poster.
So start cutting together your trailers and upload them to Your.MTV.com. The deadline for submissions is 10 a.m. PST on Tuesday, September 13, and we'll announce the winners next Wednesday, September 15. Good luck, and happy rocking!
