• ABOUT THE CONCERTS:
Over the past four years, Mankind Tracer, SL’s most recognized live performer, has held his Peace, Love & Belief Concerts, with the last PLB IV event broadcast Live on Video and carried on 52 different sims.
During his long time performing in SL, Mankind Tracer has won many prestigious awards, performed countless charitable events for both large and more personal causes and he has released 3 SL CD’s which have seen tremendous success in SL. After almost 5 years of contiinual live performing in SL, his concerts are still packed with most being driven by audience requests and of course his wonderful original music.
PLB V will again be a Live Video Concert. The concert is planned to last for two straight hours. There will also be a live audio stream just in case residents don’t have the ability to see video. Mankind will stream his live show across SL via the new “Stage Screen”. This year, there will still be the Land Mark Board which, as with all previous PLB Events, will clearly display the names of all participating venues/sims and each venue name will be clickable to their respective LM’s. Sponsors will be provided a square space on the LM Board to place their logo and may be clickable to a SLurl, website, blog, etc.
Mankind will perform at an unspecified location in order to speak directly to attendees at the venues and take requests via IM.
• ABOUT PEACE, LOVE & BELIEF:
The idea of Peace, Love & Belief is something Mankind Tracer offers all attendees at his shows and has been doing so for well over three and a half years since he first started performing. In Mankind’s own word’s, “I wish you peace in your minds, love in your hearts and belief in the generosity and the goodness of the people that share the world with us.” Millions of people have likely heard his message and his hopes are to spread his message even further.
• ABOUT AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS)
In ALS, nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control movement stop functioning. The condition leads to paralysis, and patients eventually cannot breathe or swallow on their own.
The disease afflicts about 350,000 people a year worldwide, and about half of patients die within three years of diagnosis.
50% OF ALL PROCEEDS, EITHER FROM VENUE PARTICIPATION, SPONSORS AND RESIDENT TIPS DURING THE EVENT, WILL BE DONATED TO HELP FUND RESEARCH FOR AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS) – ALSO KNOWN AS LOU GEHRIG’S DISEASE
• FOR VENUES:
Participating venues will be provided with a “Package” which will include the LM Board, promotional material, tshirts, etc. and an instruction notecard for setup. You will need to place the provided texture in your land settings under “Media Texture” in order for the video to be visible on your sim.
Be sure to get on board this historic SL Event as many SL and RL eyes will be watching this one! We’re hoping to break last years 52 sim record and with your help, we’ll do it!!!!
THIS IS GONNA BE BIIIIIIIGGGGG!!!!
• EVENT PROMOTION:
Banners advertising the event will be placed all around SL, on Second Friends, FaceBook events and groups, MySpace, Reverb Nation, SL Radio Station and more.
If you are a business in SL and would like to sponsor the event, there are only 20 spots available. Sponsors will have a square image embeded onto the LM board which will be placed at all 60 participating venues offering great exposure. Sponsor ads will also be clickable to a LM or website of your choice.
Those who choose to sponsor the event will also be offered a discounted ad rate for one month on Second Friends, the Social Networking Website for SL residents only, created by Mankind Tracer.
All ads on Second Friends may be linked to a separate website, blog, SF group page or profile page, or to your location in Second Life through what is called a SLAP – Second Life Auto Port. This means when visitors click your SF ad, they will be offered a TelePort to your location. If they don’t have Second Life running at that moment, the SLAP will automatically launch SL and offer them a TelePort upon successful login.
If you would like to be part of this historic SL Event, either by carrying the stream or by sponsoring the event, please contact Kalli Birman to reserve your spot as early as you can. There is only room for 60 venues/sims and cutoff date for entry is October 9, 2011.
