Win tickets and VIP experiences with PokerStars Backstage

Do you like music? Do you like free stuff? Are you based in the UK? If the answer is 'yes' to all of those then you are in luck because PokerStars has launched PokerStars Backstage. We're giving away a whole lot of gig tickets and VIP experiences to O2 Academy venues to see some of the best live bands around, including Primal Scream, Jack Black's band Tenancious D, Basement Jaxx and Placebo.

Daily poker tournament freerolls are running, which means you don't need to spend a bean for a chance to win, while the more exclusive VIP Experience tickets (VIP guest list, hotel, transport etc) can be won by playing tournaments with a buy-in of just £0.11 (yeah, 11 pence). And we're giving away three sets of tickets just for throwing a rock pose. All you need to do is follow the super-easy instructions below. The more effort the better but please be careful if you decide to deploy pyrotechnics, judicious amounts of air guitar or glam rock styling.
