Bud Light is celebrating music all summer long through Bud Light Music First, a new program that brings music experiences to consumers across the country.
The program culminates on August 1, with Bud Light's "50/50/1"presenting concerts in all 50 states on a single day, and Bud Light is bringing Blackberry Smoke to The Complex. Residents in Salt Lake City and surrounding cities can win tickets to the 50/50/1 event – as well as more than 500,000 music-centric prizes – through the Bud Light Music First app, available through the Apple and Android app stores. Fans can also learn more through the Bud Light Music First Myspace Hub at https://new.myspace.com/budlightmusicfirst. Bud Light will also debut the first TV commercial for the Music First program, "Anytown," this week. The new 30-second spot, created by Translation, features a sampling of the single "I Miss the Misery" by Halestorm, who will perform at the Missoula, Mont., 50/50/1 show. All Bud Light 50/50/1 concert attendees must be 21 years of age or older. Fans can attend the Bud Light 50/50/1 concert in their local market with a valid ticket.
