Crossfade is giving its readers the chance to see and meet Serj Tankian
on Saturday, October 9 at the Fillmore Miami Beach
! We're giving away a pair of tickets, plus entry to a meet and greet with Serj himself. The show should be an epic one: Tankian recently announced he will be accompanied by a 24-piece orchestra as well as his usual backing band, the F.C.C.
It's not the first time he's been accompanied by an orchestra, of course -- after releasing his solo acclaimed album, Elect the Dead, he re-recorded the whole thing live with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, dubbing the new release Elect the Dead Symphony. As such, in Miami he'll perform much of this new material, as well as a healthy selection from his upcoming new album, Imperfect Harmonies, due out on September 21.
To enter, leave a comment with your favorite song by Serj, either solo or with System of a Down, and include a valid e-mail address! We'll run the contest until 2 p.m. this Friday, August 27, and randomly draw a winner after that.
Otherwise, reserved-seat tickets are $38.50 and $45, or $99 (plus fees) for a four-pack through Live Nation
Check out the video for his new song, "Left of Center," below; lyrics are included!
