Shazam Delivers Take That ‘Golden Tag’ Win to SuperFan Shirley Price
Dedicated Fans Shirley and Lorraine Will Meet Gary, Howard, Jason, Mark and Robbie after Tagging ‘The Flood’ 450 Times
LONDON, UK – 30 November 2010 – Shirley Price from Morden in Surrey has been named winner of the Shazam and Take That ‘Golden Tag’ promotion. Shirley has won a pair of tickets to not only see Take That perform in the coming months, but also get an exclusive meet and greet with Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams.
Shirley has been a life-long fan of Take That and met her best friend Lorraine in the early hours of the morning while queuing overnight for Robbie tickets outside the Astoria in London. Together the pair have attended every Take That concert, racking up as many tour miles as the band itself – taking in Belfast, Barcelona, Zurich, Stuttgart, Berlin, Hamburg, Milan, Allborg, Copenhagen, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester and London on just one tour.
They’ve also spent hours recreating costumes from Take That’s tours and videos – even tracking down an elephant costume to wear on tour - and taken days off work to queue up for tickets. They have even gone as far as sweet-talking an online temporary tattoo company to make special replicas of all Robbie’s tattoos to wear at one show!
“When I told Lorraine we had tickets to meet the band she screamed so hard I had to take the phone away from my ear.” said Shirley Price. “To think, finally, after seeing them live for the first time in 1993, the two of us will be face-to-face with all five of them…. Now that’s just Shazamtastic!”
Shirley was one of thousands of Shazamers across the country that entered the ‘Golden Tag’ promotion. To be automatically entered into the free promotion, all Shirley had to do was register with Shazam and then tag the band’s new single The Flood from the radio, TV or wherever she heard it.
“Meeting Take That is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Shirley and Lorraine and Shazam is so pleased to have had a hand in providing this unique experience to such dedicated Take That fans,” said, Will Mills, Director, Music and Content, Shazam.
