SIRIUS Canada hosts national tour to test Canadians' music trivia
TORONTO, June 24 /CNW/ - SIRIUS Canada, the country's leading satellite
radio company, today announced the launch of its national SIRIUS Face the
Music Tour. This Name That Tune style challenge will test Canadians' music
trivia knowledge at kiosks appearing at some of this summer's hottest events
as well as online, with the highest scorer winning an ultimate concert
experience for two in New York or Los Angeles.
Kicking off with a media charity challenge today at the SIRIUS Satellite
Radio Stage at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre, the SIRIUS Face the Music Tour
will test Canadians' knowledge of artists and song titles from a wide variety
of music genres, from the 1960s to today. The tour will also highlight SIRIUS'
great entertainment value including sports, news, talk, entertainment and
commercial-free music content. Additionally, Canadians can play along online
at home at www.facethemusictour.com.
"Music lovers are often also music trivia buffs, and we love the idea of
putting them to the test in this fun way," said Janet Langille, Vice
President, Marketing, SIRIUS Canada Inc. "The SIRIUS Face the Music Tour not
only challenges Canadians' musical knowledge, it also allows them to discover
new artists and genres they might not be familiar with and gives them a chance
to win amazing prizes. It's also a great introduction to all the other great
sports, news, talk and entertainment content available on SIRIUS."
Those competing in the SIRIUS Face the Music Challenge, whether at a
kiosk or online, will be faced with music-related questions on everything from
60s Pop Hits and 80s Hair Bands to Canadian Indie and 60s and 70s Country.
The SIRIUS Face the Music Tour will make stops at Ottawa's Canada Day
Celebrations, the Calgary Stampeders home opener on Canada Day, the
Collingwood Elvis Festival, the Merrit Mountain Music Festival, the Edmonton
Grand Prix, Whistler's Mountain West Music Fest, and Live Nation Concerts
