Yes it's true - the international phenomenon that is Guitar Hero 3 is coming to the Zebra Muzik shop in Ilkeston .
www.zebramusic.co.uk - Zebra Muzik has teamed up with Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival to bring the ultimate in interactive music gaming experience this Saturday 14th June 2008. With the prize for the Winner and Runner up of a place at the UK Final at Bloodstock - the UK's Premier Metal Festival - over the weekend of 15-17 August, this is a night not be missed.
Ilkeston is the fourth in a UK series of Guitar Hero 3 heats with each venue contributing 2 representatives to the Final. There they will compete against others who have come through the heats and also participants at the 10,000 attended Festival itself. In addition to 3 runners up prizes, there's a grand prize of Â£500, Bloodstock and Guitar Hero 3 merchandise and above all - a certificate acknowledging the first winner of the annual Bloodstock Festival/ Guitar hero 3 Champion. You'll have the additional bragging rights that come with your being photographed and featured on the venue, Festival and industry websites.
The proceedings start at 10.00 a.m until 5.00pm and all the action will be featured on state of the art Projectors, large screens and X Box 360 consoles. GH3 features several musicians including Tom Morello (of the bands Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave and The Nightwatchman) and Slash (of the bands Guns N' Roses, Slash's Snakepit, and Velvet Revolver) as in-game characters. For those of you not familiar with the concept, each player uses a guitar-shaped controller to play highlighted notes of varying genres of rock music as they scroll in-time with the music - a sort of karaoke for guitarists. And you don't even need to have picked up a guitar previously or know how to read music. It really is playing by numbers and as there are several levels each with their own points system, scoring is not a challenge. But...... obtaining a great score can be though and for anyone out there who thinks that they have just the right amount of axe wielding talent and considers themselves as the next Rock God legend just waiting to be discovered then this is the game for you.
Bloodstock will have personnel in attendance during the day event and will offer opportunities to purchase tickets for the Festival with on the day GH3 spot prizes available. The day also offers a revolutionary, electronic, convenient and green method to enter with a unique ticket reference number purchased via mobile phone. For full venue details, please contact
