POW! ENTERTAINMENT AND MKC ENTERTAINMENT JOIN FORCES TO PRESENT STAN LEE’S POW!ER CONCERTS
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – POW! Entertainment (OTCQB: POWN) (Company), the media and entertainment company founded by comic legend Stan Lee announced today that it has teamed up with MKC Entertainment to form the Stan Lee’s Power Concerts – a series of superhero-themed concerts to bring live entertainment to military installations or bases across the United States. The Concert series will kick-off with the first concert located on Camp Pendleton’s Pacific Views on April 5, 2013 featuring Gloriana.
The Concerts series will leverage the power of Stan Lee’s iconic worldwide brand and the expertise of MKC’s government contract vehicles. A percentage of topline revenue will benefit the Moral and Welfare programs (MWR) on bases with a percentage of proceeds benefiting various charitable organizations such as Wounded Warriors and the Semper Fi Fund. Tickets will be sold to all military personnel at discounted rates during an exclusive period and will be available to the general public.
Stan Lee, Founder of POW! Entertainment said, “It’s an honor to be able to host spectacular shows for the military personnel and families stationed on home fronts across the United States and beyond. I may be known for creating superheroes, but these are true, living heroes who risk their lives for the country every day and deserve to be shown the profound appreciation we have for them.”
“We’ve been developing Stan Lee’s POW!er Concerts for the past few months, and so it’s been exciting today to not only confirm our company’s growth in the live event space but for this partnership to benefit our nation’s real life heroes. Our show on Camp Pendleton’s Pacific Views is going to be spectacular and we are looking forward to providing a great event with Gloriana” added Gill Champion, CEO/president of POW! Entertainment.
“Stan, Gill and I have been shaping this JV for months. I am excited and extremely proud of our model; deliver heavily discounted top tier live entertainment to the brave men and women serving in our military, (in many instances allowing the general public attendance as well), our commitment to supporting the military focused charities, and paying significant commissions to the MWR and MCCS programs that support our troops directly. I am thrilled about our opening event on Camp Pendleton, a base where I was stationed for nearly 6 years.”
