THE SUB CITY TAKE ACTION TOUR SURGES ON

10% of the cost of each ticket sold is donated to further Patrick’s mission making each person attending the Take Action Tour an active participant in making the world a better place. In addition, Take Action is offering fans an opportunity to personally help save a life with onsite registration for the National Marrow Registry available at every tour stop. Registration is simple and only requires the donor to be between the ages of 18 and 61, have a desire to help save a life, and have time for a quick cheek swab and simple paperwork. Registering is much easier than most people think and information about the entire process can be found at BeTheMatch.org. Those that register will be given an exclusive Take Action Tour bracelet at the show! Those under 18 will have plenty of ways to support the cause as well, including buying a copy of the compilation or simply by texting! Fans can text “ACTION” to 85944 to donate directly to supporting this years cause! Those that text to give will also receive an exclusive Take Action bracelet, by visiting the Take Action merch booth at the show. Learn more about this years cause at each show or by visiting drivingfordonors.com.

The highly anticipated Take Action Volume 9 charity compilation is currently available via pre-sale at takeactiontour.com. For $6 fans can pre-order the 2CD set and for $12 they will also receive, in addition to the two disc set, a special Take Action shirt. The tour compilation will be available at shows and in stores February 9, and will include exclusive songs, acoustics, and remix tracks from We The Kings, Mayday Parade, 30H!3, Cobra Starship, Taking Back Sunday, There For Tomorrow, Frank Turner, The Friday Night Boys, Anarbor, and Hit The Lights, among others.

Take Action thanks, our many great sponsors of the tour. Presenting sponsor Hot Topic has worked with the Take Action Tour since the tour’s inception in 1999 and their commitment to helping make a positive impact continues to be as strong in 2010 as it has ever been. The music lifestyle mall retailer (hottopic.com) is a natural fit as a presenter, because they demonstrate a passion for music in everything they do. Expect to find the Take Action Compilation Volume 9 in your local Hot Topic store. Also generously supporting the 2010 tour is MySpace Music, Alternative Press Magazine, Absolutepunk.net, Touch Tunes, Go Merch, Hopeless Records, S-Curve Records, Atlantic Records, Fueled By Ramen Records, and MySpace Records.

To date, Sub City, a registered 501c3 organization, has raised nearly $2 million for various charitable organizations; much of that a result of Take Action, driving home the fact that we can all help bring forth change and that making a difference can be as fun and easy as buying a CD or concert ticket.
