"Microsoft Zune teams up with Universal Republic and UnRuly Productions to present the 2009 "Class Is in Session" Summer Tour featuring the Billboard recording artist, DJ Class. The tour is scheduled to kick off on May 15th and includes stops in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Canada, Baltimore, Phoenix, Houston, Tampa, and more. Class' infectious single, Im the Ish, has recently hit the Hip Hop, R&B, and Top 40 Billboard charts and is projected to be this summers smash hit."

It looks like Zune's at it again with a fresh round of summer concerts. After the successes of N.E.R.D., Bun B, Common, and Wale (who put on a great show when I went to see him last month), DJ Class is on tour to promote his latest single. The track, called Im The Ish, is as catchy as it is obnoxious and for a limited time available for free from the Zune Marketplace. I disagree that it'll be the hit of the summer—check out the list at Statik Selektah's Soundtrack to the Summer or the Black Eyed Peas ear-bleedingly bad Boom Boom Pow for a more likely candidate—but if you're a fan of Baltimore Club Music or techno-tinged hip hop and you live near one of these major metro areas it can't hurt to check him out.

We'll try to keep you updated with Zune-sponsored shows throughout the summer as we hear about them.

Zune at Live Nation

When it comes to the Zune or really ANY digital media player, there's a lot of noise out there. People talk about the DRM, the battery life, the screen resolution, screen size, the pretty (or not so pretty) user interface, the buttons, the texture of the casing and so many other things. But when you get right down to it, there's only one thing that the Zune is really about. The Zune is about music and videos. I didn't buy my Zune to be a portable picture album. I didn't buy it to play games. I bought it because when I want to listen to music, where ever I am, I want to hook in my headphones and hit play. That's what the Zune is about.



That's why I really like what Microsoft is doing when they team up with Live Nation which has tons of different concerts in many venues around the country to promote the Zune. The first concert is today in Phoenix, AZ but that's only the start. If you attend one of the concerts that Zune is partnered with, take a flyer you can print up from Zune 's Live Nation website. The first 50 people get VIP treatment in the Zune Zone. Lawn chairs, wait staff and maybe even a Zune gift.

In addition to all of this, Zune has a contest up to win one of four trips to see a concert in California, Virginia or Colorado. These are some great venues and come complete with a two day, one night stay in a hotel, airfare, spending money, transportation and a pair of Zune players. Yes, this is a trip for you and a friend or loved one.

I'll be going to see Incubus when the Zune Zone roles into Tampa at the end of August. Hopefully I can sneak in and see what it’s like in there!
