Sin City About To Go Dark

Sin City is about to go dark. In another bold move from the world's most iconic vodka, ABSOLUT(R) is encouraging consumers and bar/nightclub owners to save energy through a series of “Lights Out” parties, kicking off in Las Vegas this weekend in celebration of its ABSOLUT Global Cooling(TM) campaign. Borne from the brand's “In An ABSOLUT World” advertising campaign, ABSOLUT Global Cooling(TM) encourages consumers to reduce the effects of global warming by offering simple steps they can implement in their daily lives.

Lights Out Las Vegas

On June 21, the eve of summer solstice, ABSOLUT Vodka and Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino will turn off the lights at approximately 9:30 pm for 60 seconds during the Outernational Music Festival featuring Gnarls Barkley, Thievery Corporation and special guest Bebel Gilberto. Thievery Corporation will enact the first “Lights Out” moment on stage, as both towers and all marquees at Mandalay Bay, including all concert lights, shut down for one minute. Kicking off a series of “Lights Out” bar promotions across the country, Lights Out Las Vegas is a symbolic gesture to call attention to the vision that “In An ABSOLUT World” — if every consumer committed to turning off their lights, the effects of global warming could be reduced and the planet would literally be a cooler place.

“There is no better place than Las Vegas to see what could happen when the lights go out, and the Outernational Music Festival is the perfect forum for this symbolic gesture as we bring together two great musical acts, one of the biggest and best properties in Sin City and thousands of the coolest partygoers on the planet,” said Ian Crystal, Brand Director, ABSOLUT Spirits Company, Inc. “With many 'Lights Out' events to follow, ABSOLUT Vodka is taking the lead in the spirits industry to communicate environmental responsibility to consumers, which will hopefully inspire them to make simple changes in their daily lives.”

To help Las Vegas cool down, ABSOLUT is hosting a series of eco-friendly activities over the weekend:

— ABSOLUT Global Cooling(TM) -branded Prius hybrid cars will offer safe, eco-friendly and complimentary rides to Mandalay Bay guests on June 21 following the concert.

— “Make a Statement” photo stations will be set up at the concert for guests to pledge their commitment to the environment and get a Global Cooling photo to commemorate this special night in Las Vegas.

— Live Earth, a partner in the Global Cooling initiative, will screen a series of short films during the concert's music breaks.

Lights Out On-Premise Promotions

Following Lights Out Las Vegas, ABSOLUT will continue its series of “Lights Out” parties in bars and nightclubs across the country from July through September. At these events, ABSOLUT will invite consumers to take an active role in their commitment to the environment by seeing first hand how alternative sources of energy can turn the lights out on global warming.

By visiting the Global Cooling stations during the bar promotions, consumers can compete to produce energy through human-powered generators and bicycles. At the end of the evening, ABSOLUT will turn the lights off at each participating venue for five minutes, which will reveal to bar patrons if they have generated enough “heat” to keep the party going. If enough energy is created, a six-foot replica of an ABSOLUT bottle will be fully lit — demonstrating their “cool” contribution to the lights out initiative.

Every Sip Makes a Statement

Part of the ABSOLUT Global Cooling campaign is the year-long “Every Sip Makes a Statement” promotion. The program encourages consumers at all touch points to get involved in Global Cooling by registering their ABSOLUT bottle or cocktail codes at www.absolut.com/GlobalCooling, where they have the opportunity to activate their eco-donation to one of three eco-charity partners. The charities selected were based on their creative solutions to making the Earth a “cooler place” and include the Environmental Media Association*, The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation(TM)* and The Ocean Foundation(TM)*. Throughout 2008, ABSOLUT will donate up to $500,000 to support these Global Cooling initiatives.

An ABSOLUT Approach to the Climate Crisis

ABSOLUT Vodka is the first company in the spirits industry to introduce carbon offsetting as part of its environmental work, and since 2003, has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 60 percent (per liter vodka). Today, ABSOLUT has one of the world's most energy efficient distilleries, decreasing its use of energy by 30 percent through a very high level of energy recovery and reducing its use of fossil fuel.

Every bottle of ABSOLUT VODKA is made of 100 percent concept cultivated wheat, which minimizes nitrogen leaching and reduces use of chemical pesticides. ABSOLUT strives to optimize its use of natural resources, and to choose eco-friendly alternatives as much as possible. As an example, the ABSOLUT bottle is made of 43 percent recycled glass. ABSOLUT is determined to continuously reduce packaging, increase the re-use of transport packaging and improve waste separation at source, and to find a market for waste products.

About Live Earth

Based in Los Angeles, Live Earth is an organization that seeks to leverage the power of music and integrated entertainment to combat climate change. On July 7, 2007, Live Earth held the largest global entertainment event in history, staging simultaneous concerts in New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg and Hamburg, as well as special broadcast events in Antarctica, Kyoto and Washington, DC. The day featured more than 150 musical acts — a mix of legendary artists like The Police, Genesis, Bon Jovi and Madonna with the latest headliners like Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, Black Eyed Peas and Jack Johnson. Through TV, radio and the Internet, the concert reached an estimated two billion people.

Live Earth's 24 hours of music across seven continents delivered a worldwide call to action and the solutions necessary to answer that call. With this maiden event, Live Earth has launched a multi-year campaign to drive individuals, corporations and governments to take action to solve the climate crisis. Live Earth is partnered with former Vice President and recent Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore and his Alliance for Climate Protection. Live Earth was founded by Kevin Wall, CEO of Control Room, the company that produced the concerts globally. For more information, please visit www.LiveEarth.org

ADDENDUM A
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON GLOBAL COOLING CHARITIES

The ABSOLUT Global Cooling(TM) charities include:

— The Environmental Media Association – Linking the power of celebrity to environmental awareness, EMA believes that through television, film and music, the entertainment community can affect change in a positive way. To reduce the number of plastic bags discarded into the environment, ABSOLUT is partnering with EMA to create stylish, reusable tote bags and inspire the use of tote bags for all shopping. These limited bags, designed by celebrities, will be available free of charge nationwide beginning in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Austin and San Francisco. For more information, visit www.ema-online.org

— The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation(TM) – The FTPF is dedicated to planting edible, fruitful trees and plants to benefit needy populations and improve the surrounding air, soil, and water. In order to help directly offset carbon dioxide emissions, ABSOLUT is partnering with FTPF to plant fruit tree groves called “ABSOLUT Global Cooling Zones” in metropolitan areas with an emphasis towards those locations devastated by natural disasters. For more information, visit www.ftpf.org

— The Ocean Foundation(TM) – The Ocean Foundation's mission is to support, strengthen and promote those organizations dedicated to reversing the trend of destruction of ocean environments around the world. Similar to planting trees on land, planting seagrass beds will help increase the rate at which near-shore coastal shelves sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Proceeds from ABSOLUT will go towards replanting coastal seagrass beds near Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami and Boston. For more information, visit www.oceanfdn.org

80,000 Steinway to Benefit Operation of Hope

World-renowned and groundbreaking concert pianist/composer Carter Larsen is selling his piano collection of twenty-five years to benefit the arts and humanities. Inaugurating the sale is his 1876 Steinway, representing the flagship to an unparalleled collection of the world's finest pianos. The 0,000 Steinway will be on display in the Burgundy Room at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel June 23, 2008 and auctioned through eBay, CraigsList, and OperationofHope.org starting tomorrow. The composer will perform pieces created on this piano from his revolutionary Fantasia Suite at 2:00pm.

Fifteen percent of the proceeds go to Operation of Hope after a birthday wish to change his life, Larsen explains, "I wish to spread the fortune I have received. This is a spiritual decision and my responsibility to humanity." Operation of Hope is an international organization that provides free reconstructive surgeries to individuals in Zimbabwe and Ecuador for the past twenty years. PEOPLE will run an eight-page article on this amazing organization in coming weeks. http://www.operationofhope.org/.

Larsen's one of a kind, customized, 1876 Victorian Steinway commemorates the centennial of America with a stunning New York Vintage Brazilian Rosewood case in high-gloss, representing the quintessential instrument-a hybrid of romance, fantasy and high-tech German Steinway's Renner-action sound board and strings. The piano was exhibited in the 2003 Namm Show, displayed by Chateau at the Pacific Design Center during 2004 in Los Angeles, and played on by Pierce Brosnan and Sir Anthony Hopkins who came to the composer seeking musical advice. Larsen's Steinway celebrates the 300th anniversary of the piano and the 150th anniversary of Steinway.

Steinway's artist Carter Larsen says, "This piano goes beyond its credentials. It has been a magical piano inspiring a continuous flow of creativity." Larsen is renowned as a concert pianist in Europe with over four-hundred concerts to his credit; performances include the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra as soloist with television appearances on BBC and PBS.

Larsen's pianos also have a legacy of twenty years of composition, writing for the major studios such as Fox, Paramount, PBS, BBC, and Discovery. He has composed music for over thirty prestigious films including Paramount's Star Trek, Nosferatu, Masterpiece Theatre, and the Mark of Zorro. The composer is currently scoring Martin Scorcese's new film, Something to Believe In, directed by Bonnie Palif.

Larsen is also offering a bonus to the buyer-a private performance of his magnum opus Fantasia Suite, created on his Steinway piano. "Carter Larsen's innovative artistry has universal appeal and promises to set the course for the next wave in contemporary music" says Omega Medina, ten year head of the classical Grammies, who will be present on the 23rd.

The composer just returned from a sensational tour introducing his music to China's thirty million pianists. "Fantasia Suite is about projecting and reflecting a brighter world," says Larsen whose sale will benefit nonprofits, organizations both nationally and internationally, as well as the arts and humanities.

John Mellencamp Announces First Farm Aid Music Festival In New England

Alongside farmers and food buyers at the Copley Square Farmers Market, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Governor Deval Patrick welcomed Farm Aid co-founder John Mellencamp to New England as he announced Farm Aid 2008 Presented by Whole Foods Market and Horizon Organic. The concert will take place on Sept. 20 at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass., marking the first time the organization will bring its annual benefit concert to the region.

“New England was built on the strength of independent family farmers,” said Mellencamp. “We can honor that independent spirit by joining Farm Aid to grow the movement that is changing the way all of America eats.”

Farm Aid 2008 Presented by Whole Foods Market and Horizon Organic will feature headliners Willie Nelson, Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews, plus other top artists to be announced. The annual benefit concert will celebrate music and good food, featuring hands-on activities in the HOMEGROWN Village that will showcase the direct connection between who is growing our food and what we eat every day.

“We are proud to bring our annual Farm Aid concert to a region that has such strong agricultural roots and to the many people who love to eat the good food grown in New England,” said Farm Aid president Willie Nelson. “I'm looking forward to bringing my friends together on the Farm Aid stage to celebrate and support family farmers.”

The concert event will again feature family-farm identified, local and organic foods at concessions, setting an example of the many ways that family farm food can be integrated into the general marketplace.

“Bringing Farm Aid's unique concert event to New England creates an unparalleled opportunity to showcase the innovation and determination of the area's farmers,” said Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid. “We're looking forward to a day filled with outstanding music and delicious food grown by these farmers from across the region.”

As part of its work to increase the affordability and availability of fresh, healthy foods, Farm Aid also announced its support for the collaborative initiative between the Food Project and the city of Boston to help more families shop at farmers markets by building infrastructure that allows market vendors to accept food stamps.

Since its beginning, Farm Aid has traveled the country, staging annual concerts and supporting local organizations working to strengthen family farms.

The Doobie Brothers, with Special Guest Three Dog Night, to Perform Mon, July 28

Soles4Souls Inc., the international shoe charity dedicated to providing free footwear to people in need around the world, announced that legendary rock bands The Doobie Brothers and Three Dog Night are performing a benefit concert for the non-profit organization in Las Vegas. The concert will be on Monday, July 28 at the Orleans Arena, with tickets currently available on www.orleansarena.com

“We are absolutely thrilled that the Doobie Brothers and Three Dog Night are coming together for one night in support of Soles4Souls,” said Wayne Elsey, CEO and Founder of Soles4Souls Inc. “We are proud to once again partner with the Orleans Arena in providing unique entertainment in Las Vegas,” he said.

The Doobie Brothers are known as one of the most popular rock bands of the 1970s, releasing a number of gold and platinum albums in the United States. They created several classic rock staples, such as “Listen to the Music,” “Black Water” and “China Grove.” Other famous hits include “Long Train Runnin,'” “Jesus Is Just Alright,” and “Takin' It to the Streets.”

Three Dog Night enjoyed unparalleled success during the early 1970s, as no other band had more Top 10 hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets. From 1969 to 1974, Three Dog Night was undoubtedly the most popular band in America: twenty-one consecutive Top 40 hits and twelve straight gold LPs. By late 1975, they had sold nearly 50 million records. With mega-hits like “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White” and “Shambala,” the group's eclectic taste, combined with their ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in Three Dog Night dominating best-selling charts for years.

New York-based boho Magazine, the first-ever green fashion/lifestyle publication to be printed entirely on recycled paper with natural soy inks and no glossy finishes, is sponsoring the event.

Tickets are priced at $25.00, $42.50, $59.00, and are available on the Orleans Arena website: www.orleansarena.com . For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 1-888-234-2334.
