WIN / Tickets to see Brandon Flowers at London Brixton Academy, 22nd May 2015

 
By on Thursday, 23rd April 2015 at 1:30 pm
 

May is almost upon us: that wonderful month that brings us Live at Leeds, The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City, not to mention two delectable bank holiday weekend. It’s all about to kick off!

Thanks for our mates at Gigs and Tours, we have a way to make your second May bank holiday weekend even sweeter. How about if we offered up three pairs of tickets to see the man, the legend that is Brandon Flowers performing at London Brixton Academy on Friday the 22nd of May to start the second holiday weekend? Are you game? You are? Then you’ll want to enter our contest below, naturally.

You’ll need to fill out our form below completely. First, give us your full name. Second, give us your email address. (We need a way to contact you if you win, silly.) Third, give us your postal address. (These are hard tickets, so we need to be able to post you your tickets if you win.) Finally, to prove you’re not a robot or maybe even one of those evil touts, answer this question any self-respecting Killers / Brandon Flowers fan knows the answer to in their sleep: what major American city is Brandon Flowers from? Couldn’t be easier, right?

That’s it. Of all the correct entries we receive, we’ll choose three winners at random to receive a pair of tickets apiece to the concert on the 22nd of May. Sound good? Be sure you get your entries in by 5 PM British time Friday, the 24th of April, when we’ll close the contest. As mentioned above, we’ll contact the winners by email, so make sure you’ve entered your email address correctly. Good luck! If you’d rather not chance it and want to buy tickets to this show or any of the other’s on Brandon’s UK/Irish tour, all the details are here.

Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only and you must be able to get yourself to London for the show at Brixton Academy. Please note that this show is 8+, and all under 14s must be accompanied by an adult (these are Brixton Academy’s rules, not ours, and TGTF won’t be held responsible if you’re turned away at the door for being underage and not meeting the venue’s age requirement). All duplicate entries will be discarded.

This contest is now closed. Winners will be contacted by email.
