Long a spot for promoting artists and their tours, MySpace is getting into the act with its first official tour this fall. The tour kicks off in Seattle on October 16th featuring co-headliners Hellogoodbye and Say Anything. Other bands, including MySpace Records’ own Polysics, are also expected to join in on the 30-city nationwide tour.
MySpace users will be able to start getting priority tickets tomorrow and will also have access to special content like tour blogs and photo galleries.
The move into the tour realm seems like a no-brainer for the social networking site.
"MySpace has served as a platform for countless bands and musicians around the world to showcase and promote their music to millions of fans online," said Tom Anderson, president and co-founder of MySpace. "With the new MySpace Music Tour concert series we are able to bring people face-to-face with the bands and artists they've come to know and love on the site."
