There are a lot of events in the coming weeks that center around The Beatles: Rock Band. If you’re in the New York City area, there’s a pre-MTV Video Music Awards event on September 12th featuring live music, an appearance by Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate of the Howard Stern Show, and two full setups of The Beatles: Rock Band for fans to play. If you haven’t had a chance to play the demos available at some local retailers yet, this is an excellent opportunity to try out the game.
The event is for the benefit of LIFEbeat, The Music Industry Fights AIDS, a charitable organization “dedicated to reaching America's youth with the message of HIV/AIDS prevention. LIFEbeat mobilizes the talents and resources of the music industry to raise awareness and to provide support to the AIDS community.” For more information about LIFEbeat, visit their official website.
The event features performances by DJ Clinton Sparks, Kid Cudi, and Phoenix. Tickets are available online now and proceeds go to LIFEbeat.
