Here’s how it works. If the bus stops in your city during the 15-stop tour, fans will be able to record their very own cover of an Empire hit. If you choose, you can submit your performance to the contest, and if you win, you’ll get to be a guest on the show as one of Empire Records’ (or maybe Creedmoor’s?) artists. Pretty cool, huh? This sounds like a ploy to keep American Idol-ish type shows running, but we’re not mad. Give us more Empire!
The tour will make stops in the following cities: Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Seattle, New York, Washington D.C., Detroit, St. Louis, New Orleans, Charlotte, Philadelphia, and Boston.
