As a rule, I do not do giveaways and product reviews on Whipped. But, one of my favorite things about rules is finding a good reason to break them. So, here we go…

Keith-urban copy

The Deal: Giving two Whipped readers 2 tickets each to a concert this Sunday, June 19th at 5 p.m. at Soldier Field in Chicago. Keith Urban and the Dixie Chicks are opening for The Eagles.  And that’s not all… you will also get passes to a meet and greet event with Keith Urban.

The Reason: As I said, I don’t usually respond to offers for blog giveaways and product reviews.  Frankly, I don’t have time to sort through all the management of the emails I get about opportunities and mostly, I just like to keep Whipped as a place where I have fun writing and interacting with readers.

But, just as I was sending my short, friendly rejection to a kind lady representing KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce, I hesitated. I read further. I was intrigued. I decided to break my rule.  During the past week, I have been touched by the positive comments on my previous post.  I’m feeling thankful for the kindness of my readers.  And, I realized that there are likely a few of you that might love going to a concert this Sunday for free and perhaps some of you that might be even more excited about the prospect of getting close enough to Keith Urban to smell Nicole Kidman’s perfume.  So, I decided that if I had the ability to help you do that, I would.

I work in marketing and I understand the deal with partnerships, advertising, spin, links and traffic.  Frankly, it has become a difficult world for marketing with endless forms of communication, short attention spans and TiVo’s ability to skip commercials.  And now, companies are relying on bloggers of all types to help deliver a message and they really have no control over what we will say.

Okay, boring commentary aside, KC Masterpiece (as in BBQ sauce) is sponsoring Keith’s concert tour.  They are the ones who are generous enough to give you a chance to win these tickets.  Their pitch is “The Real Deal.”  Are you authentic just like KC Masterpiece BBQ and Keith Urban?!  Let’s play along…

The Method: Leave a comment on this post letting me know you are interested in the tickets and if you feel like it, tell us what the “Real Deal” in your life is (i.e. your favorite old jeans, your volunteer work, your love of animals).  On Friday at 10 a.m., I will use to choose the two winners.  Two tickets will be waiting for each of you at the concert on Sunday and Keith Urban just might be waiting for you back stage with a heaping plate of BBQ chicken.  Let’s see how this goes.

    Tickets. My real deal is the man I have been madly in love with for 44 years. We lived around the block from each other, childhood sweethearts, met at 14. Of couse, over all that time we have had our ups and downs, but many more ups. I have a blessed life.

    My real deal is my parents – they are awesome and the biggest Eagles fans I know! My dad still talks about how during college he traded his favorite leather jacket for a pair of tickets so he could take my mom to see them. I’d love to win these as a gift for them!

    Family is the real deal in my life. If it wasn’t for my family I would be a hot mess. My sisters are always there for help with the kids, my mom is always there for a quick meal, and my husband keeps me laughing through constant craziness. I love my family and because of them I couldn’t love my life more!

    I went to her concert two weeks ago and the geaernl admission didn’t fill up very quick, I don’t think you have to go REALLY early. Tons of people took their time getting drinks and stuff. Have fun at the show! It was the best night of my life =)I’m going again in March and this time getting geaernl admission, it’s going to be GREAT

    It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of
    all time. I don’t know all of the ways money is being made off of their intellectual property. So many dichotomies They are perpetual adolescents who are in their mid-thirties and staring down the barrel of the big 4-0. Just off I-66 in Prince William County has a noise ordinance in place that forces music at jiffy lube live to find out!
