It’s a true rock ‘n’ roll awakening that only campers attending this fall’s four “Weekend Warrior” Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camps can truly understand. Simply put, there is no VIP offer any concert promoter can make anywhere that compares to the “ultimate” backstage experience campers get at ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP (RRFC) – especially at the Recession-busting rates of the “Weekend Warrior” camps.

That’s why Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is going on tour this fall, with an exclusive East Coast camp in Philadelphia (Oct. 22-24 a the Trocadero); a West Coast camp in San Francisco (Nov. 5-7 at the Fillmore); a Southwest camp in Dallas (Nov 12-14 at the House of Blues) and a Midwest camp in Chicago (Nov. 19-21 at the House of Blues). Campers will be traveling across state lines to live out their rock ‘n’ roll fantasies while having the ultimate backstage experience of their lives with head counselor Dickey Betts (co-founder of the Allman Brothers Band), along with camp counselors Mark Farner (formerly of Grand Funk Railroad), Mark Hudson (Aerosmith), Kip Winger (Winger), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy) and Sandy Gennaro (Joan Jett, Pat Travers).

And look who now will be making special guest counselor appearances: Mitch Ryder in Chicago, Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, Wallflowers) in Philly and San Francisco; Teddy Andreadis (Guns N’ Roses) in Dallas and Chicago, and David Uosikkinen (The Hooters) in Philadephia. With more to be announced!

Rock pundits from Rolling Stone to the New York Times are noting with anguish this summer that while vast numbers of people are losing their jobs and homes, the VIP packages once reserved for megastars like U2 and the Rolling Stones are trickling down to the rank-and-file of live performers to prop up a struggling industry . As artists desperately try to maximize grosses in an ailing economy, they’re giving you the opportunity to pay even more than the already inflated ticket prices to feel like you’re getting closer to them. But how much more do you really get?

As the New York Times recently noted, Bon Jovi has been offering an $1875 VIP package that includes a leather bag, a catered meal and a take-home folding chair with the band’s logo. But where’s the genuine band interaction?

By comparison, for $1999, “Weekend Warrior” campers gain admission to a three-day camp with over a half-dozen rock star counselors, two lunches, a ticket to the final night concert opening night cocktail party and dinner, a swag bag and most of all – learning and playing all weekend long with the rock star counselors. Pay a little more and you get things like autographed guitars and drum heads, a DVD of the final concert (with YOU in it), the opportunity to write and record original songs, take Master Classes, and receive concert tickets and private meet-and-greets for 10 of your closest friends and family members. Consider all of your rock ‘n’ roll fantasies truly fulfilled. Chair or no chair, these three-day camps will change your life!

No top-dollar VIP package being offered by an act on tour this summer even comes close: Not by the Black Eyed Peas, not even by Justin Bieber. Sure, you can grab a quick picture with KISS for a $999 concert ticket; but the Eagles won’t even let you snap a single shot. Some rockers will take a quick “pic” with VIP’s who’ve stood in a long line waiting for that brief few seconds of face time. Some will offer a glass of wine. Almost all will guarantee you a seat in the first 10 rows and a free t-shirt – but would you expect a seat any further away at that price?

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP shows you what a real VIP package looks like, giving you everything those other packages offer (well, maybe not the take-home chair), with the true promise of the most genuine rock star interaction you could imagine. And with your favorite rock legends. YOU and the rock stars are the concert, and you work together with your rock star counselors to attain that moment, the grand finale, at a renowned rock concert venue.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP has never been more accessible, thanks to these new, Recession-busting “Weekend Warrior” packages. For that once-in-a-lifetime experience, a deposit of just $299 will save you, a friend or family member a limited spot. It’s an irresistible combination that affords the opportunity to embark on a widely acclaimed adventure, as TV viewers around the world will see this fall when VH1 Classic’s weekly hour-long docu-series premieres. Each day is a new thrilling challenge for the “rock campers.” “Weekend Warrior” packages start at $1999 for this once-in-a-lifetime weekend-long experience.
