Hamburg: The teenie rockers of Tokio Hotel have closed a rewarding advertisement contract deal, right before the mayhem around their new album will start. The 4 Madgeburger musicians will display their names and faces for the handy company Nokia. This was confirmed by manager David Jost to the dpa. He did not say anything about the financial part of the contract. Until now Tokio Hotel had stayed away from advertising. The musicians did not want to be connected to closely with any brandlogos…
Part of their contract is a poster campaign, an unplugged concert, David Jost said. The concert with acoustic instruments wil be held in Germany. The cards will be raffled off and can not be bought.

Tokio Hotel aims to make the Nokia Music Store known
The Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia seems to have problems, with familiarizing its music store to a wide audience, therefore they take tough measures. The Group undertook the German band Tokio Hotel to boost the sales of the Music Store. The four Magdeburger musicians stir not only the advertising drum for Nokia, but also promote their new album Humanoid, which will also be available in the online shop.
Beforehand, the band will play a mini-concert in Cologne, in which five old and a new song will be presented unplugged. Then there is an autograph session. Each visitor will receive a Nokia Music package with extensive Fanmaterial and a voucher for the Nokia Music Store. This allows the winners to download the new album from Tokio Hotel in the Nokia Music Store.
Tickets for the concert can’t be bought, you can only win them. From August 3rd on, fans can try their luck on www.nokia.de. As a consolation for those who don’t get tickets for Cologne, there’ll be a mobile content package set by Nokia and Tokio Hotel in selected stores. It includes a voucher for 10 Euros for the download of the new Tokio Hotel album Humanoid, as well as a spoken short message, ring tones and background pictures of the band for the mobile phone.
Thanx to THA also!
