Taylor Swift: Band Heroine
Like many other musicians these days, Taylor Swift – 2008’s bestselling artist – is jumping on the bandwagon this November and starring in a new Band Hero video game. You’ll be able to live out your very own musical fantasy, playing as Taylor Swift as she performs some of her top songs, including “Love Story” and “You Belong To Me” (from her latest album, “Fearless”), as well as “Picture To Burn” from her self-titled debut record.
Taylor Swift says she wanted to do the game because she’s fully behind “anything that encourages people to pick up an instrument and play.” Not only will you get to hear her songs, you’ll also be able to customize Taylor Swift’s touring band and feel like you’re experiencing one of her concerts in real life. It’s pretty much the closest thing to going and seeing Taylor Swift perform.
As part of the game’s launch, Taylor Swift and Band Hero are giving 20 lucky fans the chance to see a live Taylor Swift concert. Four of those 20 fans will be able to meet Taylor Swift in person! You can keep an eye on contest details at http://www.bandhero.com.
Band Hero Vs. Guitar Hero
So what’s the difference between these two games anyway? Basically, Band Hero is the ultimate party game, where players of all ages get to experience the easy-to-learn but hard-to-master gameplay that you find in Guitar Hero. Band Hero also lets you create your dream band using any combo of guitar or drum controllers and vocals.
Other Band Hero Artists
