Wednesday, August 29, 2007 to Host Nationwide Concert Tour

In a move that further shapes its image as an MTV-like pop-culture hub as well as a social network, News Corp.'s has announced that it will be sponsoring a concert tour this fall. Appropriately called the MySpace Music Tour, the series of shows will kick off October 16 in Seattle and will host more than 30 performances before winding down in Las Vegas around Thanksgiving. The headlining acts for the tour will be two artists who have built up large followings on the social-networking site--geeky pop band Hellogoodbye and emo act Say Anything. The tour will also include the Japanese punk band Polysics, which has been signed to the new MySpace Records label, as well as yet-to-be-announced guests. Sales will be conducted through a branded community page on MySpace, which will also feature photo galleries, contests and band blogs.
