PlayStation and TeamRock have come together to provide a live stream of the Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2013 exclusively on PlayStation Home.
It will be available on June 17th and it will be the first time PlayStation has ever streamed an award ceremony of any kind. Headlining the awards ceremony will be Motörhead, in what will be their most intimate show in years. Also playing will be Airbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Paradise Lost and Coal Chamber.
The Golden Gods is now in its 11th year, and has become a global brand for Metal Hammer. As an event that puts the fans first, it has driven in excess of half-a-million votes this year, and 1,500 of the 2,000 tickets that are available, are given away free to fans through competitions run by the nominated bands, and via www.metalhammer.com. The core of any musical genre is the fan, without them it does not exist and the Golden Gods is the only rock awards that gives back, and in this exclusive deal with PlayStation, this love will spread globally.
Ian Williamson, TeamRock Commercial Manager, stated:
“It would be an understatement to say a large majority of our readers are also passionate gamers. To join the two through the amazing PlayStation Home virtual environment is as natural as Lemmy in a cowboy hat.”
Hugo Bustillos of PlayStation UK added:
“PlayStation gamers are a passionate bunch. Passionate about gaming and passionate about their music. Having the Metal Hammer Golden Gods streamed into PlayStation Home is really going to blow them away!”
