Want to See Lady Gaga Play in Texas Next Week? Do Something Bold
Lady Gaga is teaming up with Doritos for a very special concert next week in Austin, Texas, and you might be able to go for free...if you're bold enough.
In a video posted on Doritos.com, Gaga announces that on March 13, she'll be performing for the first time at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Her show, benefiting her Born This Way Foundation, will take place at the Doritos #BoldStage, and if you want to attend, you have to complete a series of "bold challenges." Select winners will receive all-expenses-paid trips to see the show.
"Only people who prove their boldness are able to get in," is the way that Gaga explains it in the video. "I believe being an individual and speaking your mind is one of the boldest things you can do," she continues, and then introduces the first challenge.
"I want you to share a picture or a video that expresses your individuality through a bold action," she says. "What bold thing have you done that makes you stand out? I will pick one lucky winner to be a VIP at my show...as for my bold act, well...you'll have to wait for the show."
You have until Saturday at noon Central Time to tweet, Instagram or Vine a picture or video; tag the post with the hashtags #boldstage and #boldbravery to enter. You are limited to between 6-15 seconds for your video. Visit Doritos.com for all the rules.
Speaking about the performance to Rolling Stone, Gaga says, "I’ve been dreaming of this moment. It’s all about the music and the connection with the crowd, and I want the audience in Austin to see me live in a way I never have before...I can’t wait to celebrate with the audience how far music can go when we believe and stick together. It’s moments like these that I live for.
