Are you tired of your only “performances” of The Ting Tings being dudes at bars screaming “THEY CALL ME STACY!” into beer bottles? Me too.
This can all change when the UK duo comes back to the U.S. in September for a 12-stop tour. Katie White and Jules De Martino will be showcasing their 2008 CD, We Started Nothing by means of an arena circuit over the face of the US (and one stop in Canada too!).
Columbia Records are hosting a fly-away contest for The Ting Ting’s upcoming performance at New York’s acclaimed Madison Square Garden. To enter, simply count the total number of times Katie says “That’s Not My Name” in the video. Everyone who answers correctly is automatically entered to win, with one lucky winner earning two round-trip tickets to New York, one night of hotel accommodations and a pair of tickets to the show.
If you can count, you can win.
