The unprecedented speed of ticket sales for the exclusive February 21st iCon concert at St. Mary-Le-Bow Church in London has prompted management to release a few extra tickets that had been held back for the media. These tickets are now available at http://www.ticketweb.co.uk. Search for "iCon," "John Wetton," "Geoff Downes," or "Wetton-Downes' iCon."
 
In addition, John and Geoff are pleased to announce a contest which will allow fans to design a special screensaver to commemorate the worldwide release of the third iCon studio album, which is scheduled for March 13, 2009 on Frontiers Records. The winning screensaver will be chosen by John and Geoff. The lucky designer will receive tickets to the sold-out limited audience London concert (which will be recorded for DVD), as well as CDs from the iCon band and solo catalogues, and have the opportunity to meet the band. All contest entries must be submitted for judging by February 10, 2009. Please e-mail your entry to iConDVD@aol.com. You may also use that same e-mail address to obtain instructions for uploading your screensaver entry, if necessary.

How do you design a sceensaver?
Is there a special computer program?
Come to think of it, if I don't know there is very little chance of me winning.
On third thoughts, I have tickets anyway!

I think it may have been our UK friends who bought the last tickets - did they sell out before or after Sunday just gone?  They got through via the ticketweb.co.uk site and as far as I know the transaction went through OK ...

ADDITIONAL INFO AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE iCON CONTEST:

The slideshow should contain images relating to John and Geoff and/or their music. They may be of the artists (solo or with iCon) or representative their music. (Please be sensitive to others and do not include images that may be considered offensive by another person, race, party or creed.) Slideshows may also include music relating to the artists, but it is not required.

Submissions for the iCon slideshow contest must be in either .mov (QuickTime) or .wmv (Window Media Player) format with a maximum resolution of 640 x 480. Google's free Picasa software (Windows & Intel Macs) or Apple's iMovie are two options that can be used to create the appropriate movie files. If the completed file size exceeds 10MB, please email iConDVD@aol.com for alternate submission instructions.

Two updates on the iCon screensaver contest:

1. There is still time!
2. Another simple and easy way to create: use powerpoint to create a powerpoint show document (.pps) which can consist of either images or images and music.

I decided to try and do a screensaver just for a bit of fun. Well after many hours fiddling away with photoshop and windows movie maker I thought that I had produced a pretty good effort. How wrong can you be! I pressed play and couldn't believe how crap it was.
Oh well, back to work tomorrow!
