Jeff Beck’s forthcoming tour is not only a great chance to watch the master in action, it’s also a rare opportunity for certain lucky concertgoers to meet the reclusive virtuoso in person, through a partnership with Panasonic. Here’s the press release:
JEFF BECK AND PANASONIC HIT THE ROAD TOGETHER
~Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Owners Get Rare Opportunity~
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Jeff Beck, who has recently released his CD and DVD Performing This Week…Live at Ronnie Scott’s has entered into an agreement with Panasonic. The guitar virtuoso will give fans an opportunity to capture his live performances while he’s on the road via this collaboration.
Concert attendees with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 – the world’s smallest and lightest digital interchangeable lens camera – will have a chance to take photos of Jeff Beck performing and submit them to the “Best of the Tour” series. The best photos will be available for viewing on VeiraCast of Facebook on a special Panasonic G1/Concert Series, as well as JeffBeck.com.
Furthermore, the first 10 people who show up at the venue with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 camera will be identified with a special Panasonic VIP logo photo pass. When they present their camera to a Panasonic rep, they will be given this pass which allows them backstage access for an exclusive photo opportunity with Jeff Beck.
Finally, Panasonic will raffle off two TZ5 class Digital Still cameras at each of the North American concerts, and winners will celebrate by having their photos taken with Beck backstage.
