If you’ve never heard of this international artist—I say artist rather than musician because what she does is art, in so many forms—there’s a good chance you have spent the last two years living under a rock, or in complete isolation. A veritable overnight sensation, Gaga has such a devout fan base—whom she affectionately refers to as her “little monsters”—getting tickets to one of her live concerts can be near impossible. (Not only do her tickets sell out in a matter of minutes, when she performed for the Today Show on July 9 this year, a record 18,000 fans crowded the streets in NYC’s Rockefeller Center just for a chance to see/hear her perform a few songs, no ticket required.)
On August 13, Gaga will be taking the stage at Las Vegas’s MGM Grand Garden Arena and, though tickets have already sold out (naturally), there are two ways you have a chance to not only win a trip to Vegas to see this concert for free, but also meet her. (I know, dream come true, right?)
First way: Head on over to Lady Gaga’s official website, fill out a short form with your contact information and submit. Oh, and you’ll need to be logged into your Twitter account, because the site will automatically tweet the following on your behalf: Tweet to meet @LadyGaga and win a trip to the Monster Ball in Las Vegas!! #meetgaga http://bit.ly/9loWNZ
This contest flies one winner (and a guest!) to Vegas on August 12 (to leave back for home on August 14), two nights stay at a local TBD hotel, $200 to cover ground transportation costs (or go shopping) while in town, two seats to the concert, and the best part: a meet and greet with the Lady herself. (See the official rules here.)
Second way: Purchase one of the stylish Bluetooth headsets from Earloomz—why not stick with the theme and go for the Gaga piece—before midnight August 10 and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win. (They’re reasonably priced at just $59.99, with more than 400 fun designs to choose from.) For this contest, two winners will be selected (and yes, each can bring a guest) to win roundtrip flights to Vegas, two nights’ stay at Planet Hollywood, transportation to and from the airport and concert, tickets to the show and, yes, meet Gaga after the show. (P.S. – If you’re not in the market for a new Bluetooth headset, just head here and you can enter without making a purchase.)
Good luck little monsters!
