Atlantic City, June 29, 2005 – Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa and Electric Factory Concerts are proud to announce that Pearl Jam will perform two concerts at Borgata on September 30 and October 1, 2005. Tickets for both shows go on sale Saturday, July 9th at 10AM. Indie, punk female trio Sleater-Kinney will open.
Pearl Jam was one of the key groups responsible for popularizing alternative music in the early 90’s. Hailing from Seattle, the band released foot stomping anthems that made them rock legends overnight. Throughout their recording career, Pearl Jam have sold more than 60 million albums worldwide and established a large and loyal fan base. Pearl Jam fuses the riff-heavy stadium rock of the ‘70s with the grit and anger of ‘80s post-punk, without ever neglecting hooks and choruses.
Pearl Jam is Matt Cameron (Drums), Jeff Ament (Bass), Mike McCready (Guitar), Stone Gossard (Guitar), and Eddie Vedder (Vocals/Guitar). The band has shared the stage with The Rolling Stones, The Doors, and The Who and is well known for its energetic, dynamic and varied live performances. In 2000, the band began releasing “official bootlegs” of its live shows in an effort to increase the quality and decrease the price of bootleg CDs; they have sold millions of these official bootlegs to date. Over the past fifteen years, Pearl Jam has released five platinum selling albums and two gold selling studio albums. A much-anticipated new release is due out next year. Tickets for these shows are $50 and $95 and can be secured by calling Ticketmaster at 800.736.1420 or by logging on to ticketmaster.com.

Kenny knows … knows when to hold 'em and knows when to fold 'em. But what Kenny doesn't know is that Ten Club has reserved a small amount of general admission tickets, located on the floor, for lucky fan club members to attend the shows at the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City NJ on September 30th and October 1st. We made a big effort to reserve these Ten Club tickets at the lower price rate because we want you there! Only $50 plus applicable service fees per ticket! A great price for an exclusive opportunity in a small venue!
Since Pearl Jam is playing a casino, we are sticking with the gambling theme, and have made this opportunity a Ten Club ticket lottery. Please follow the instructions below to enter the lottery. We will notify winners before the public onsale, so if you don't win you'll have another shot at buying tickets when they go on sale to the masses, July 9th.
Since this is a lottery, there are federal rules we must follow … so, if you answer no to any of the following questions, then you are not eligible to enter the lottery drawing.
The lottery will start June 29th (right now) and will end on July 5th at 5PM PDT.
Submit your entry for a chance to buy a pair of tickets to one of the two shows at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the subject line of the email, please type: "ATLANTIC CITY, BABY!" In the body of the email, indicate the date of the show you wish to attend, your full name, billing address, daytime phone number, credit card number (V/MC), and expiration date. You may enter only once for each show. Duplicate entries will be disqualified. Remember to tell us which show you want to go to … if you don't include this info, your entry will be rejected. You may enter once for each show. Since the Ten Club tickets are for general admission floor tickets, seniority for seat location does not apply.
We have a limited amount of tickets, so we plan to do this quickly, which is why we are asking for your payment information upfront. Please don't enter if you are unsure if you will be able to make the show.
We will randomly select the winners on July 6th, process the credit card information you provided, and send out a ticket confirmation letter via email letting you know how and when you will receive your tickets. If you don't hear from us before the public onsale on July 9th, then you should probably think about getting your tickets from, ahem, that other ticket outlet (Ticketmaster) or the Borgata box office.
There will be no refunds or exchanges for these tickets. And as usual, if you are caught reselling your tickets for more than face value, we will be sad and we will have to revoke your future ticket privileges with the Ten Club.
Please read the fine print below for details regarding the official rules of this ticket lottery. For more information, or questions, please contact email@example.com. Your concerns will be addressed in the order they are received. Atlantic City, baby!
