It's been an eventful week for Twilight fans, as Summit Entertainment dropped a whole bunch of New Moon pics and clips on the web for devotees of the teen vampire saga to drool over. And to top it off, a little over an hour ago they announced a 15-city tour featuring appearances by New Moon castmembers and performances by bands on the soundtrack. Whoa! First, the new clips:
Clip One: "Volturi Fight"
Clip Two: "Event"
Now, about that tour. If you're the lucky resident of one of the 15 cities listed below, and you're brave enough to leave the house and visit your local Hot Topic or Nordstrom (admittedly a dangerous proposition), you'll have the chance to meet an actual member of the New Moon cast, provided they haven't already filed a restraining order against you. Just think, you could be face-to-face with such characters as Man on Bus, Third Werewolf on the Left, or Charlie Bewley's Stunt Double. Awesome!
Following is the text of Summit's official press release:
The nationwide tour will kick off in Los Angeles, CA at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Friday, November 6th with a special event open to the public where fans will be treated with performances by several bands featured on THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON soundtrack scheduled to include Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina, Sea Wolf, and Band of Skulls, giving fans a brand-new way to experience the album.
