For those who thought that they’d never get an opportunity to walk a red carpet or brush shoulders with their favorite celebrity, BET Networks, AEG and L.A. LIVE have teamed up to provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—aptly called The BET Experience at L.A. LIVE. For the first time ever, public can purchase tickets to attend the BET Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, which grants them exclusive access to the red carpet and special VIP entrance to performances during the BET Experience weekend, June 28-30, 2013.
Even though Beyoncé’s North American tour kick-off concert at STAPLES Center is completely sold out, guests purchasing specially created VIP Ticket Packages can rest assured that they are guaranteed great seats for all of the sold-out weekend performances as well as numerous other events, receptions and programs taking place during the BET Experience. Fans are warned to buy early as these special packages are limited. The three VIP packages provide access to the entire STAPLES Center weekend concert series featuring Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Miguel, ScHoolboy Q, legendary artists The Jacksons, R. Kelly and New Edition. Packages also include intimate show performances by comedian Mike Epps, songstress Erykah Badu, The Roots & Friends, and a gospel showcase including Kirk Franklin over the BET Experience weekend at Club Nokia.
“The BET AWARDS weekend has evolved into a tremendous 3-day experience,” said Debra Lee, BET’s Chairman and CEO. “Attendees will be treated to a specially curated BET GRAMMY® Museum Exhibit; empowerment seminars that range from money and cultural to entertainment, family and health; a film festival; fan fest; the Music Matters stage, celebrity appearances and more.”
Special hotel package pricing is available for the weekend’s events. The official host hotels for the BET Experience are the JW Marriott Los Angeles, L.A. LIVE and The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles. The BET Experience will offer special rates to consumers at more than 20 other hotels in the downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills areas.
“I can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend than by enjoying all the sights and sounds at the BET Experience. Who wouldn’t want a chance to hobnob with the stars while sipping champagne on the red carpet in sunny Los Angeles? It just doesn’t get any better than this,” said AEG’s Sean Dee, President, Global Branding AEG Live.
