Hot Topic has posted their video coverage of the Vampire Diaries Hot Topic Cast Tour in Miami (with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley) a few weeks ago, featuring lots of interviews with Vampire Diaries fans and the guys of Sounds Under Radio (thanks for the heads up on the video, guys!).
The last stop of the Hot Topic Cast Tour with Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder in Miami appears to have been a resounding success (the wristbands were sold out well in advance – congratulations to those lucky devils who got their paws on them). Thanks to gcsri0tgirl, you can see part one and part two of the Q&A session below. We’d give you an earplug warning, but odds are your hearing has already suffered from the previous two tour videos.
The second stop on the Hot Topic Vampire Diaries cast tour was in Chicago yesterday, with the awesome Steven R. McQueen and Michael Trevino as the special guests. Queues were epic, fans were excited, and the screams were just as loud as ever. There’s video of the Q&A session courtesy of vampgurl789 (watch your necks, the second video is sideways, but the sound is great). Earplugs at the ready before you head in to watch Part One and then Part Two.
Sounds Under Radio are continuing to support the tour with their performances, and you can head on over to their website for a free download of their track “Sing”, which was featured in episode 21, Isobel.
Big thanks to Sounds Under Radio for sharing their own viewpoint of this past weekend’s Vampire Diaries Season 2 Hot Topic Cast Tour with us! As you all know by now, SUR is performing at each stop of the Tour (don’t miss them in Chicago this weekend and Miami next weekend!). A new version of their track “All You Wanted” (arguably one of the most memorable music placements of the first season) is on The Vampire Diaries: Original Television Soundtrack and features guest vocals from fellow TVD-featured artist Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy. You can follow them on Twitter at @SURtweet and on Facebook, and keep up with news on their official website.
The Dallas stop of the Hot Topic Cast Tour went down a storm with all the fans who turned out to the event. Weren’t able to make it? Watch the Q&A video below, courtesy of javanatorrrrr. Discover the the answers to alternative careers, funny things on set, the best part about playing their characters, and many more fan questions.
Be warned – the earplug warning from last year? Still in effect. Vampire Diaries fans have fantastic lungs. ;)
The Hot Topic Vampire Diaries cast tours are back for season two, with various cast members attending each of the three stops; Dallas, Chicago and Miami. The tour kicks off on Saturday 9th October at 4pm with Ian Somerhalder and Candice Accola at Stonebriar Centre Mall, Dallas, and a live performance from Sounds Under Radio.
If you’re heading to any of the Hot Topic stops and plan on tweeting from the event, we’re suggesting that fans add the #tvdtour hashtag to their tweets so it’s easy for everyone to follow along with the excitement online.
If you’re wondering what the Hot Topic Cast Tour t-shirts look like, @txvdfan (one of our kick-ass forum moderators) was lucky enough to get a couple of the last bracelets for Dallas. She’s snapped a shot of the t-shirts and wrist bands (take a look below), and will be telling us all about her experience over the weekend.
