Ticket giveaway: U2 w/Arcade Fire in New Brunswick, Canada

Filed Under: Live Shows

Written by Brendan

Monday July 11, 2011

I have to admit, I’m doing this more out of laziness and disdain for craigslist than out of sheer goodwill & generosity (also, shameless promotion).  Regardless, the end result is the same.  I bought two tickets as well as camping & parking passes to see U2 & Arcade Fire, but things fell through, and I’m not going to be able to use them.  Can you?

I’m giving away two General Admission tickets, two camping passes for the campground right beside the venue, and a parking pass for the U2 360 Tour (with opener Arcade Fire) July 30 in Moncton, NB, Canada.  The campground opens 2 days before the show, if concert tailgating is your thing.

On Monday, July 18, I’ll pick one random winner from a hat.  Here’s how to get your name into that hat (up to 4 entries per person):

  1. Enter a comment to this post using your real name and an actual email address that you can be reached at (your email address will not be published, and will be used only to contact you if you win).  (1 entry)
  2. “Like” the On Permanent Rotation facebook page, then come back and reply to your initial comment (To reply to your initial comment, click the ‘Reply to this comment’ link directly underneath your inital comment), letting me know you’ve “Liked” this blog. (1 entry)
  3. Invite your facebook friends to “Like” On Permanent Rotation as well, by posting a link to your facebook wall.  Once at least 1 of your friends has “Liked” On Permanent Rotation in response to your invitation, post another reply to your initial comment with the name of that friend. (1 entry)

If you do all 3 of the above, you’ll also receive 1 bonus entry, for a total of 4.  Please note: you MUST follow the order above, and for #2 and #3, you MUST reply to your initial comment from #1 (using the “Reply to this comment” link directly under your initial comment).  This is the only way I’m going to be able to keep track of people.

UPDATE (7/19/11): Thanks to everyone who entered.  The winner of the ticket/camping package is Rose Mary Garrett of Prince Edward Island.  Congrats, Rose Mary, and have fun at the show!
