The Details: For those who have followed my Contests area on PiercingMetal some of the text in this might sound a little bit repetitive and I will be straight with you and say that it’s almost a word for word redo with a light modification. The guys in King’s X are road warriors and one of the best sounding bands that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in concert. It’s a fact that they’ve never disappointed their fans yet in terms of great gigs and solid recordings. Those of you who have similar experiences are likely nodding your heads along to the statement and yet despite this there are far too many people that have not a single idea about what this band holds in their musical grasp. 2018 finds them still pushing forward with the musical charge and on the cusp of their fortieth anniversary as a band. That said, I am once again super excited to say that thanks to the folks from CEG Presents, some lucky PiercingMetal fans will be hitting the show for free when they perform at Sony Hall. This will mark my fifth contest for the band and brings the PiercingMetal outlet a little bit closer to our 1700th ticket. Isn’t that cool? We like to think so. The rules on how to participate are below.
When and Where: Wednesday, August 22nd at Sony Hall (235 West 46th Street) 7PM Show
To Participate: Tell me three things that you like the most about King’s X as a band and why you need to be a part of this show. I will be picking a few lucky winners out of the responders and letting them know right below their comment so make it a good one. We ask that you please follow this criteria:
– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you can and will attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see them so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult.
Bring it on as this one will close by noon on the day before the show or when allotment has been depleted. Thanks so much.
Restrictions: While all PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers we do look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. I do still encourage all to participate because you never know just how many tickets we are offering and when that last person might have won. This is for a single ticket only and please note that Guest and Anonymous comments while approved are NOT eligible to win the contest.
If You Win This Contest: If you are marked as one of the winners for this contest, here is how to claim the ticket. On the night of the show go to the venue Box Office and ask for the House Guest List. Please bring proper identification (driver’s license, passport, NYC ID card) and your name will be checked off for you to enter. If you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for an onsite manager and cite how this contest was done in coordination with the promoters and PiercingMetal.com. You can also expect an email to the provided address reminding you of the win so make sure that @piercingmetal.com is listed as a safe domain to receive notes from.
Do you have any King’s X in your collection? I hope that you just answered “yes” but if you didn’t, here are a whole bunch of necessary albums from the King’s X catalog.
