Independent hip-hop stalwart Murs is currently on the road with Kidz in the
Hall for a 36-city tour to support their latest albums Murs for President and
The In Crowd. In support of the tour, Zune is producing exclusive tour diary
video podcasts that will chronicle the artists’ current journey across the U.S.
The initial episodes will be available on Zune Marketplace beginning November 5,
and new episodes will roll out weekly through December 18. Fans can subscribe to
automatic weekly downloads and then synch the episodes to their Zune device to
enjoy them on the go.
In addition to the video tour diaries, Zune is
producing episodes with both artists for “The Green Room" interview series,
which consists of video podcasts that take fans behind-the-scenes through
regular access to exclusive, backstage interviews at concert venues. Murs and
Kidz in the Hall are creating custom playlists of their favorite tracks for Zune
Marketplace, as well as artist "Breakdowns", where they discuss their albums
track-by-track in their own words. Zune also created 25 custom devices for each
artist etched with special artwork, which will be given away on the artists’
websites and through radio stations and other media outlets.
