NASHVILLE, Tenn. — GigTours™ founder, Donny Michael, has announced plans to launch the new “I’m With The Band” ™ lottery program and corresponding Gigtour package in 2021.
Initially launched in 2000, Nashville-based GigTours™ is an innovative, and proven-successful, promotional concept that enlivens the ”life and times” of a touring and recording artist—bringing music enthusiasts together with their favorite country music entertainers in an ultimate escapade. Artists who have previously participated with GigTours™ include Keith Urban, George Strait, Little Big Town, Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, and many more.
In keeping with the GigTours™ brand, the 2021 “I’m With The Band™” venture is no exception. The “I’m With The Band” ™ Gigtour is the reality experience of a typical day-in-the-life of a touring artist. In partnership with U.S. state and provincial lotteries, and in alliance with top-selling concert performers, “Second Chance Winners” will be awarded an all-inclusive 4-day/3-night excursion to shadow their favorite entertainer on tour.
A turnkey operation, the GigTours™ team coordinates all travel arrangements, facilitates guest background checks and scheduling. Winners will travel in VIP style aboard a luxury entertainer bus to mirror award-winning pre-approved tour schedules; from departure to arrival, unloading the gear and stage-set, to soundcheck and showtime, and reloading for the next gig several hundred miles away, the travel itinerary and agenda follows the very schedule of the artist.
“Working in conjunction with the State and Canadian Lottery agencies, and alongside artists and their respective teams, we’ve enjoyed a long run of success. With the launch of the, ‘I’m With The Band™’ Gigtour experience, GigTours continues to provide once-in-a-lifetime adventures that money just can’t buy,” said GigTours™ CEO, Donny Michael.“The prize appeals to core lottery players while enticing a younger generation of players—those with an appetite for experiential prizing; the promotion affords the artist one-on-one fan interaction in addition to an alternate revenue source.”
