Kids, I have two tickets to give away for the new Queen + Paul Rodgers movie
Let the Cosmos Rock. This special concert movie is airing at theatres worldwide for one night only - November 6, 2008. Get off work early - the film starts at 7:30 p.m.
The film Let the Cosmos Rock features classic hits...and songs from the new album called The Cosmos Rocks. The footage was shot on September 12 in the Ukraine. According to an official press release supporting the film, Queen has sold over 150 million albums worldwide.
Fans know the name Paul Rodgers from the bands Bad Company and Free. He's sold over 90 million albums with those bands. The Cosmos Rocks is his first studio album with Queen.
So what songs can you expect to hear during your screening of Let the Cosmos Rock? You'll hear "We Will Rock You," "Tie Your Mother Down," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "All Right Now," "I Want It All," and "Bad Company."
Now, I'm sure you'll all agree that Queen are the epitome of a 70s Glam band...later paving the way for our 80s Sunset Strip favorites...and now Sweden's modern rockers. So, if you want to win my pair of tickets to the special one-night-only event - read on.
As you know, I always make my readers work for their winnings. This time, I want you to write a Glam haiku. You can write about any band you wish - but the subject must be tied to Glam.
Remember, a haiku is made up of just three short lines. The first line is five syllables, the second line is seven syllables and the final line is five syllables. Haiku does not rhyme.
I wrote a haiku to help you out:
Motley Crue is Glam
Girls, girls, girls; lots of hairspray;
Sunset Strip legends
If you find a theatre near your city and you think you can write a good Glam haiku, get to it, Hemingway! Please email your haiku to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send me your entries by 11:59 p.m. EST Friday, October 24. I'll post the winning haiku here for all to enjoy. Good luck.
Here's the official movie trailer:
