Nintendo Fusion Tour to kickoff this fall, Wii to be playable?
REDMOND, Wash., July 18, 2006 – Music lovers and video game fans will converge in venues across the country this fall, as the fourth annual Nintendo Fusion Tour gets underway. The tour, headlined by emo-rock band Hawthorne Heights and produced by Live Nation, will visit some 40 cities nationwide between Sept. 27 and Nov. 11. In addition to live music, each venue will showcase the hot-selling Nintendo DS Lite and provide a sneak peek of Nintendo’s upcoming console, Wii.
The Nintendo Fusion Tour will be kicking off nationwide in September. Hawthorne Heights, Relient K, and the Plain White T's will just be some of the bands on stage. However, a lot of attention might be on what is shown off stage. Nintendo has hinted in the press release and several sources have indicated that the Wii will be playable at the concert tour.
With the tour running from September 27th to November 11th, this could be a great way for Nintendo to get the Wii out and playable to the public before a late October or early November launch.
BDCgamer will have more info about the tour, along with tour dates as more information becomes available.
