TVD Ticket Giveaway: Foo Fighters w/ Social Distortion and The Joy Formidable at Verizon Center, 11/11/11

WIN before you can BUY.

Things are good right now for the Foo Fighters, with a tour underway, a new album Wasting Light released earlier this year, and the award-winning Foo Fighters film Back and Forth, showing the world that Justin Bieber isn’t the only rockstar that gets to be on the big screen.

Their tour will soon join forces with punk arm tattoo staples Social Distortion and feel-good female-led The Joy Formidable, playing the Verizon Center November 11th. Tickets to see this unbelievable lineup go on sale this Friday, August 12th at 10AM. BUT since you’ve got a friend in the music biz (whose initials are T.V.D.) you can win a pair of tickets right now. Dang, you’re cool.

For a chance to win, leave a comment telling us the lineup of your dreams.

I’d have Jeff Buckley, Sufjan Stevens, and Sam Lightnin’ Hopkins share a stage. Actually, that’d be a pretty good show.

The winner will be chosen Friday (8/12) at noon.

I'll stick with the 3-band setup, and as long as everyone is dreaming about reincarnation, so will I.  These are 3 great bands/performers that represent a huge chunk of musical history, and each band could play for hours and leave you wanting more.  Also, each of the last 2 were influenced by the one before it, so there is a sense of musical evolution.

Chuck Berry
The Beatles
The Ramones (with Tommy on drums)

Hey Olivia, maybe people just want to share the lineup of their dreams despite the contest being closed.  Does it really matter if people want to continue posting?  If so, shut the page down.  Otherwise, just ignore the posts.  If people were saying "I hope I win" that's one thing.  Otherwise, just assume they're contributing to the conversation.
