MetalSucks readers know we’re HUGE fans of Ihsahn, and were completely blown away by his solo release last year, After – which is why we’re beyond stoked that he’ll be making his live U.S. debut at ProgPower USA on Friday, September 16.
To celebrate, we’re giving one lucky MetalSucks reader and a guest the chance not just to meet Ihsahn at the festival — but to actually hang out with the legendary musician! Here’s how this is gonna work:
Between now and Friday, June 10, purchase a ticket to ProgPowerUSA. Tickets are available here. In addition to Ihsahn, there’s lots of other cool artists playing the fest, including Sanctuary, Therion, and Dream Evil — so you know this is gonna be a good time!
E-mail proof of your ticket purchase to progpowerusa AT gmail DOT com with the phrase “IHSAHN/METALSUCKS CONTEST” in the subject line.
A random drawing will be held to determine the winner, who will be announced on Monday, June 13.
That winner and a guest will get a private meet and greet with Ihsahn the day of the show. This will not be a simple stand in line/photo/autograph/ass out the door kind of situation — the winner will be able to hang out with Ihsahn for awhile, have a beer or two, get some cool swag, etc.
The winner will also be given a special pass to watch Ihsahn’s entire set from in front of the stage barrier.
And that’s it! This has to be one of the coolest contests we’ve ever run. So go buy your tickets and enter now!
