Rock Band Touring the US!

This is exactly what this game needs. If you’ve been following Rock Band, you know that it has more features and instruments than Guitar Hero 3. It’s also made by the creators of Guitar Hero, Harmonix. Well it’s seeming like Rock Band is the way to go for gamers, but people that play Guitar Hero at parties probably think GH3 is the original, and Rock Band is the knock off, or just not know what Rock Band is.

Enter the Rock Band Tour.

You’ll have the chance to play Rock Band before it launches. The catch: “amateurs and experts alike will get the chance to play on a full stage with lights and sound systems.

Not really something I want to do. I just want to play the game, not be on display. But it gets worse better. “Any rockers without stage fright who play on the Rock Band tour bus stage will be captured on tape for consideration by MTV casting directors. Two bands will get picked and flown to NYC to spend face-time with a real rock band for official rocker training. Then they’ll play on MTV’s TRL, and the winning outfit will get to open for a surprise super group at the Rock Band launch concert.

Regardless if you want to play it, or just watch people playing it you can check out the tour dates after the break. I plan on going to the Columbus show on the 20-23 of this month. I’ll get pictures and coverage of the event and post it on Buttonbasher! So watch for that.
