Haha, yep! There's also PLJ (http://www.plj.com/) who aren't as big as Z100, but still pretty big.

And if you're gonna contact them, I will too, I mean the more people the better~ that's what we need - just everyone here to contact all the stations and maybe they'll catch on. 8D

I emailed them told them I would send them a packet with some vamps fliers etc.. its easier to email them I make one email for all radio stations >_< but yes please contact them !!

EDIT:

Anyone know any other big radio stations? I don't care at all to contact them and send info to them I have no life other than VAMPS lolol so I have all the time in the world to help promote them..

Has anyone heard of a video podcast called diggnation? yeah well I'm a huge computer geek so i watch this show regularly i sent them an email a few weeks ago with VAMPS tour dates etc and asked them if they could possibly help me promote them since their show is based in CA. They still haven't said anything on their show yet though.. so I don't know if it will work or not but I tried.

I am a geek too! way to go :D internet is the best way of promotion ^__^! also let's try facebook events!

-----------------------

I already made an event on Facebook here:

--------------------------

I told Ai about Craigslist. Although, I wonder if she created an account...

I was like Vamps they're doing a tour here blah blah blah and she was like "O_o okay~ we dont know them sorry! What else can we play ^^'" i was like uhhh never mind then XD I asked if I could send them a song or something and they're like O_O really, if you want our address is on our website but we can gurantee we would play it we dont know who that is >_< But if we keep requesting they'll KNOW who Vamps is when we're done with them!

Do you want to send the songs tracy or should I?

--------------------

You should send them "LOVE ADDICT" because it's entirely in English. If that works, then send them a few of their other songs. I doubt they'll play the song if it's only in Japanese. "LOVE ADDICT" could catch their interest, then we could hook them with one of their other songs. ;)

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
Yeah I saw that long ago ^^ but I think individual ones will also work ^^ I think MissyK did the Ny one? in there you could choose contacts that were near the event place and send it to them. I think she used livenationg or music something.

I've posted the whole tour event on my profile ^^!! thanks :D

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
About a year ago, I asked people on MySpace to send me information regarding their local radio stations. KROQ here in L.A. wouldn't even give me the time of day (I emailed them & tried calling about 50 million times). When I suggested to J about the radio stations thing, he said that he'd send the radio station a VAMPS CD if they agreed to play their music. In addition, if the radio station agreed to play VAMPS' music, we would have to put them in contact with J (obviously). This is what J had told me, so yeah...Godspeed everyone. I really think we should push sending them "LOVE ADDICT" because the song is entirely in English. It would at least catch the interest of some radio stations. See, many radio stations tend to stop listening after they heard the phrase "Japanese rock band." However, be persistent and don't give up. If we all can agree that "LOVE ADDICT" would be the right song to promote for now, then we can all call different radio stations and request it. What do you guys think?

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
Well personally I'm making a CD that includes all three of VAMPS singles... then once the radio station gets the cds we can start calling them and requesting a certain song but I want them to hear all of vamps not just one side of vamps..
L'arc~en~Ciel 20th L'Anniversary was amazing!!

A lot of difficulties I experienced when I had been calling radio stations to get them to play VAMPS came from the fact that they were "Japanese" and it was assumed that they only sang in Japanese. Unfortunately, a lot of people won't listen to music that they can't understand. However, I hope I'm proven wrong and VAMPS will get some airplay somewhere before the tour.

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
To go off of J's blog post, I think some of these ideas may also help:

1. missykitty recently informed me of an event that's to take place in Central Park in New York on the 31st. The event is called, "Japan Day" or something like that. If any of you plan to attend, that would be the ideal place to promote VAMPS and it would be a really, really, really big help. Here's some more info:

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=84...902&ref=ts)

In addition, if you don't receive your fliers from Ai at least a day or two before this event, create a few of your own and hand them out. You can post your fliers elsewhere when they do arrive. (NOTE: Ai has told me that all of the fliers have been sent out, so yeah...)

2. YouTube videos promoting the tour. I think if videos that promoted the upcoming tour were plastered all over YouTube, it would really help. If you don't want to create a video, then posting comments promoting VAMPS' tour in the "comments" section of any VAMPS/HYDE/L'Arc~en~Ciel/Oblivion Dust/Gackt-related videos could also help. Word of mouth really helps.

3. Spreading the word on social networking websites. This may have already been covered, but I'll post this again just in case. If you have accounts at any or all of the following sites: MySpace, Facebook, LiveJournal, Mixi, Twitter, etc...post information about the tour as much as possible. For example, there are a ton of groups related to VAMPS, HYDE, L'Arc~en~Ciel, Gackt, J-Rock etc...posting information about the tour in those groups could also help.

4. Leaving small fliers in random places. Someone once told me about leaving small fliers in different places (i.e. restaurants, cafes, buses, etc...) If you and your friends are hanging out at a restaurant one day, take a few small fliers with you and "accidentally" leave them there. It may sound silly, but it could work and it's definitely worth a shot.

5. Calling radio stations. This would be extremely helpful, but past experiences have taught me that this will definitely require the cooperation of more than one person. DJ's tend to not take fans seriously, as in my case. Sometimes, people at radio stations will stop listening after they hear the phrase, "Japanese rock band," which is why we'll all have to combine our strengths for this one. Once everyone is able to post information, we can all take turns calling each station. To get started, I know these radio stations are pretty big in Los Angeles:

KIIS FM:
http://www.kiisfm.com

3400 West Olive Ave. Suite 550
Burbank, CA 91505

Request line: 1 (800) 520-1027


KROQ:
http://www.kroq.com

5901 Venice Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90034

Request line: 1 (800) 520-1067

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
On the KIIS FM site, there's a part that says "ARTISTS - submit your music for on air and online consideration. Click for details!" I wonder if we could put VAMPS music there? It says it's for "unsigned artists" though...

Most talk show websites have a "suggestions" or "comments" area, so we can ask them to feature VAMPS...it might not happen before their U.S.A. tour this year since it's a little late by now, but they might be interviewed at the end of the year or even next year if enough people request!!

Sites I've left suggestions on:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032633?ta=y (The Today Show)
http://www.oprah.com/index
http://ellen.warnerbros.com/
http://tyrashow.warnerbros.com/

I've also e-mailed Shojo Beat since they've featured HYDE in their June 2006 issue: letters@shojobeat.com

In all my comments, I've told them to contact Ai Aota since she's in charge of the tour promotion.

I see what you're saying and I do agree once they hear "japanese" band they go like ehhh no! Get away!

When I called I said it was a band PERIOD. I told them it was a mix of hard and soft rock.. i mean it is. Their songs are diverse and I said that. The fact that they're japanese is non of their buissness is it lol The girl told me to go ahead and send them a demo cd with a couple of songs and she said it could be a CD or a memory card.. Tracy is gonna go ahead and send it to them for me. SO~ I think we're fine sending ALL the songs. We just have to know how to aproach people. Most certantly NOT LIE just keep the info out so they can give VAMPS the opportunity they deserve! If once they hear them they're like O_o what are they singing they atleast gave them a chance and listened instead of.. oh japanese band no get away!

I know this method works because its how i've gotten ppl who hate music "they cant understand " to like Hyde's music ^^
