Verizon Wireless goes on tour with Linkin Park

Verizon Wireless has announce dates and premium content for its Projekt Revolution summer tour featuring Linkin Park, Chris Cornell, The Bravery, Atreyu, Hawthorne Heights and more rock. The tour will kick off this Thursday at the Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix, Ariz.

Along with a chance to see their favorite band, fans will also have an opportunity to meet Linkin Park and take a photo with the band, (have your camera phone handy).

Verizon Wireless will also have V CAST Song ID stations set up along the tour to demonstrate how to use the service. The first 200 fans to participate in the demonstration of V CAST Song ID and identify Chris Cornell’s new song “Long Gone” will be given wristbands to an exclusive autograph signing where fans will have a chance to meet Cornell the day of the show.

For a Verizon statement, Cornell said:

“I am very excited to be working with Verizon Wireless to connect with my fans in innovative new ways via their mobile phones and look forward to sharing some of my new music exclusively with the fans attending Projekt Revolution tour first.”
