Fuse, the only national network dedicated to music, Live Nation, and Comcast announced today the launch of a cross promotional sweepstakes, “Rock Star for a Year.” This one-of-a-kind promotion will give consumers a chance to win two tickets to 20 concerts at Live Nation’s Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT during the 2010 season.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Comcast and Live Nation on this partnership,” said Mike Bair, president, MSG Media. “Given Comcast’s role as Connecticut’s leading communications and entertainment provider, Live Nation’s expertise in the live concert industry and knowledge of what excites concert goers, coupled with Fuse’s ability to offer cable providers and concert promoters the opportunity to connect with viewers in a way no one else can through our national reach and Madison Square Garden Entertainment’s assets, makes this unique collaboration the perfect partnership.”

“This partnership is a natural fit for Comcast, as we are committed to delivering an unparalleled entertainment experience to our Connecticut customers,” said Doug Guthrie, senior vice president of Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes Connecticut. “Our job at Live Nation is to connect artists and fans, and Fuse is a direct conduit to some of the most active music fans in the country,” said Joey Scoleri, senior vice president of tour marketing/promotion at Live Nation. Fuse will collaborate with Comcast to promote the sweepstakes on various cable television networks and online. About Fuse
