Rock Against Diabetes, the first of its kind in delivering a HD interactive worldwide Internet broadcast of a charity concert festival has announced that guitarist Richie Kotzen (ex-POISON, MR. BIG) will perform at the event. It has launched a competition to find a band to take the opening slot at the August 23 worldwide broadcast. Also scheduled to appear at the Rock Against Diabetes 2008 pre-show kickoff party August 22 at Club ROX in Las Vegas are KARENVAL (featuring Dario Lorina) and GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal. New Blade Guitars endorsee Steve Brand (Rock Against Diabetes music director) will also be taking part in the pre-show party gun-slinging for Thal. Tickets go on sale soon for the Club ROX pre-show event.
You can now fully support this event, and become part of concert history by attending this one of a kind, fully interactive LIVE concert broadcast FREE. You get eight hours of LIVE music, online only auctions, interactivity with host Evel Dick Donato, the bands and a ton of other surprise guests, for FREE and the opportunity to donate any amount, if any, that you wish. AND you can invite your friends FREE when you grab your ticket.
Rock Against Diabetes has decided to find the opening act where else, but on the music social networks of the internet. MySpace, Facebook, Garageband, PureVolume and the multitude of other musical communities will be invited to submit their music, and videos to Rock Against Diabetes to be judged, and pared down to a Top 10, that will be judged by a panel of musicians, promoters, television personalities and industry giants.
