Bluzapalooza, the world-famous Blues concert co-produced by the island’s Music Man, Steve Simon, is offering one person a ringside seat to its appearances in Kuwait and Iraq in December. The winner will spend two days in Kuwait and attend the concert for US troops, and then be issued camouflage Kevlar vests and helmets and fly via an Air Force C-130 to the Green Zone. In Iraq, they will stay at one of Sadam Hussein’s former palaces.
“You and all Blues performers will spend the following week touring military installations in Iraq, meeting and greeting our troops, learning about what they do and seeing things that most Americans never see,” Simon explained in a news release. “You will enjoy your exclusive position as an embedded Bluzapalooza journalist” during the concert.
There’s a contest entrance fee of $100. Details on can be found here: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=321159539&blogID=419520186
