Earlier this month, we invited die-hard Kings Of Leon fans to submit their fan testimonials for a chance to win “The Road to Slane Castle,” a contest set up by MTV and social-media site Superglued to see the guys perform at Ireland’s Slane Castle later this month. We received thousands of entries and while, in a perfect world, everyone who participated is a winner, in a more accurate world, only two people will be brushing up on their Gaelic. Congratulations to Caila Noel Curtis of Denton, Texas, and Sam Magro of Pennsauken, New Jersey, who will be flown out to see the Tennessee quartet’s May 28 show in person!
Caila and Sam proved to be the ultimate Kings Of Leon fans, showing their passion through social media sites, posting photos from past shows, and submitting videos displaying the level of their fandom. Now they get to document the show and their experience on the road through video diaries, live streams and live-blogging.
Damn. We don’t even get to do that and we work here.
You can check out the winning videos below and congrats to our runners-up, Bobby Myers, Chris Austerman, Brianna Schneider, Lee Rickard and Brittany Kerr, who will receive prizes ranging from band gear to tickets to future shows.
