From now until FRIDAY, just for buying tickets to shows on the forthcoming North American tour, you’ll be entered in an amazing contest wherein you can win all sorts of stuff…from signed CD’s, to backstage passes, to Amanda’s very first keyboard! Order tickets for any of the “hot off the presses” tour dates listed above (November 12th-December 16th shows)! We’ll announce winners October 1st-ish. Grand Prize is an autographed keyboard (pictured and described below by Amanda). The Grand Prize winner (and their guest) will also receive a meet ‘n greet with Amanda at the show of their choice. If that isn’t enough, they’ll even get a signed CD!
In addition, there will also be two “runners up” for every show — they (along with one guest per winner) will each get to attend the special meet ‘n greet with Amanda in the city of their choice. Runners up will also receive signed CD’s… Still not enough to sweeten the deal? One additional winner will be chosen from ticket buyers of each show to receive a signed CD.
And now, the nitty gritty on the keyboard:
pictured below is my first keyboard. i’m finally willing to part ways with it.
it’s a stunning, authentic CASIOTONE MT-55.
it was given to me by my parents as a christmas present in 1984, i believe. two keys are missing. there is an awesome rhythm function!
the demo on the keyboard is incredible annoying and was the main culprit in an event that took place in 1985 that involved my sister kicking me in the side
of the head and rupturing my eardrum (i forgave her recently).
i recently found an exact replica while at a sleazy fleamarket in sheffield, UK (or was it manchester?) and i bought it.
the original must go to the rock and roll annals of york.
while i didn’t pen any songs that you would be FAMILIAR with on this sucker, it did serve as a gateway to poundier darker things.
i will sign it and give it five fresh batteries, too.
Again, you can PRE-ORDER TICKETS HERE!
