BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT is helping launch the new video game, BAND HERO, by appearing as herself in the game and offering a chance for fans to play alongside her on hits like "Love Story" and "You Belong With Me." The virtual band experience is being released by the makers of GUITAR HERO, allowing music fans to combine guitar, drums and vocals to play alongside their favorite artists and songs.
SWIFT said: "Anything that encourages people to pick up an instrument and play, I'm fully behind. And, I'm really excited about BAND HERO, because not only are fans getting to play my songs, but I'm actually in the game. There are so many awesome things that go into being in BAND HERO, like getting to customize my band to look like my touring band, and it's so cool for people to feel like they are experiencing one of my concerts. This is one of the closest things out there to going to see me perform!"
TAYLOR and BAND HERO will offer 20 lucky fans the chance to see TAYLOR live in concert, and four of those fans will win the opportunity to meet her in person. More details on the contest will be available in the coming weeks at www.bandhero.com. BAND HERO will be released to stores in NOVEMBER.
