Raymond James Stadium announces 80-ticket giveaway for Brothers of the Sun Tour over social media platforms

For Immediate Release- March, 28, 2012

Tampa, FL — For the next two months, Raymond James Stadium will be giving away 80 tickets through its Facebook and Twitter (@RJStadium) pages to the Brothers of the Sun Concert Tour featuring Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw with special guests Jake Owen and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals on June 2.

Four pairs of tickets will be given away each week in the form of random contests on either social media platform. In addition, Raymond James Stadium will also have two longer duration contests throughout the two-month period before the concert: a video contest and a photo contest.

For the video contest, fans are encouraged to send in one creative video of them singing or lip-syncing to their favorite Chesney or McGraw song. Fans can submit entries by sending their video to viscomm@tampasportsauthority.com. Raymond James Stadium is only accepting the first 35 videos it receives so it’s best that fans get theirs in as soon as possible. The winner will be announced on May 18 via Facebook and Twitter and will receive a “Family 4-pack” that includes four tickets to the show, a parking pass and concession money.

For the photo contest, fans submit their best photo impersonation of Chesney, McGraw or both by either emailing viscomm@tampasportsauthority.com or sending a message to Raymond James Stadium over Facebook.  Entries will be put into a Facebook photo album where fans can vote on which photo they like best by either “liking” or commenting on it. Whoever has the most likes and comments COMBINED will win a pair of tickets and a parking pass. The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. on May 4 via Facebook and Twitter.

Tampa is the first stop for this 19-date nationwide tour. The tour finds Chesney, who consistently has crowds “eating up his every word and move,” joined by “master showman” (Huffington Post) McGraw for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. ’Brothers of the Sun’ will be the first time in 10 years that Chesney and McGraw have hit the road together.
