I participated in Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Cricket Wireless. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
It wasn’t until my tween Maddy asked me how many concerts I’ve been to that I stopped to think about it. When I started listing them out, I realized that I have a love for live music. There’s something magical about watching an artist perform on stage to hundreds of people that you just can’t get through a device.
Her question was prompted by the One Direction concert we were headed out to see. While I am not a huge One Direction fan (yes, tween and teen girls everywhere are gasping in horror), I could appreciate their concert for it’s ability to grasp the audience and get everyone – including me – dancing in their seats. Have you taken your children to a concert yet? Which one was it?
Prior to the One Direction concert, I had the opportunity to take Maddy and a few friends to Univision’s Award show, Premios Juventud. Everyone in our party had to agree that Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias stole the show. The two men can really perform and they know how to get the crowd moving!
I was delighted to hear that Pitbull and Enrique had joined forces to go on tour and the sponsor of the tour was Cricket Wireless. We’ve partnered with Cricket Wireless in the past to let parents know all about their budget-friendly plans. (Does the fact that we’ve worked with Cricket Wireless and now Pitbull works with them mean that we are in some way connected in a parallel universe?;)
In true Cricket Wireless fashion, there are incredible something to smile about (#STSA) moments for the fans! The Cricket Stage is a 10×20 stage that will be erected at select tour stops and give fans the opportunity to give their best “headliner” pose. Those who pose can share their 360 degree images on their social media channels and photos will be entered into a sweepstakes where 3 guests will win a trip to the Latin Grammy Street Party in Miami! All stage participants will receive Cricket ear buds.
That’s not all! Holograms of Enrique and Pitbull will be located within certain venues and if you really want to meet Enrique, you can enter the Cricket giveaway where fans can win a trip to the Atlanta tour stop! A lucky fan will get to meet Enrique and ask him all the questions they want. Other details that have been added to the concert include the Cricket step and repeat during the meet and greet sessions and Cricket signs on mirrors in the ladies rooms to take the perfect selfie.
Be sure to experience all of the Cricket Wireless something to smile about (#STSA) fun going on at the 2014 Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias tour! And if you go, I’ll be SUPER jealous! 😉
