The Pulse of Radio reports that a scam centered around tickets to the Taste of Chaos tour has hit the Web. A person passing themselves off as "Jennifer Weds" at the email address promotions@tasteofchaos.com is sending out emails offering two VIP tickets for $95 each. The messages generally say in part, "You have been chosen to receive two VIP tickets for the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour! Your name will be on the will call list plus one guest. Please be sure to bring a print out of the email and your photo ID when picking up your tickets. Will call will be open one hour prior to showtime. Have a great time and keep rockin!"

The Taste of Chaos has asked fans to disregard these emails as they are totally false.

In other news, anyone who signs up for the DKMS Bone Marrow Registry through Music Saves Lives will gain early entry to stops on the Taste of Chaos run. Concertgoers 18 and older who register with the marrow program, which helps those with leukemia and cancers of the blood, will be allowed into the venue 30 minutes before doors open to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what goes on before the lights go down.

Only 20 people will be allowed in per show. Information on how to apply can be found at TasteOfChaos.com.

The Taste of Chaos tour features AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ATREYU, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and others. It pulls into Minneapolis on Tuesday (March 4).

hmmmm, this is one scam I don't have to worry about. Because the only way I'd use those tickets is if they were free. I guess its not really a scam if they're free. You know even if they were free I don't think would take them. I guess this scam has no chance at getting me... Good try, Maybe next time jennifer.

Good idea... I'll start some scam-mail about a good tour, anyone have any ideas which one I should use? I figure VIP tickets about $140 a pair should work. Speaking of which, most VIP packages I have ever bought/seen have been in pairs of multi tickets, so whats with the "two tickets at $95 each" thing? That right there would me me suspicious besides the fact that promotions like that are usually sent out by the bands.

Maybe this person thought that anyone dumb enought to go to this tour would be dumb enough to fall for the scam? I wonder if they got any money out of those emails?

What is pathetic is likeing any band just because its metal. What is even more pathetic is not thinking or listening for your self.

I don't only like Atreyu because it is a metal band, I like it because I enjoy Alex's scream, Brandon's voice and the lyrics in the songs. The fact that they are metal or not has nothing to do with it.

And in my opinion I think this bill sucks and have a right to post my opinion on it. Before you go around calling people pathetic for not likeing your favorite band should look in the mirror. Bashing peoples opinions is what is truely pathetic and juvinille.

i wasn't even "bashing" anyones opinion, when i said it was pathetic i was saying that it was pathetic to go on a website for metal bands and moan and groan over the metal artists that are going to be on a tour. i wasn't making a big deal about you not liking atreyu either. Considering the fact i don't even know you i could care less about what you think of "my favorite band" as you put it. and, to XWigglesX I'm not emo, emo is a genre of music. I'm a human, not a soup can, don't label me.
