BELLEVUE, WA — Reik fans can now enjoy several opportunities to enjoy their favorite band: exclusive songs; a chance to spend a day with the band; free concert tickets and back stage passes; and, recording a mock video of the band before every concert.

Exclusive song and sweepstakes
Reik fans can now download an exclusive track, “Más Cerca de Ti,” recently released on VCAST Music. Fans can text “Musica” to 8907 from their V CAST-enabled phones to download the track. Once the download is complete, each fan will be automatically entered into the “Spend the Day with Reik Sweepstakes.” The sweepstakes grand prize includes two tickets to see Reik in concert in Los Angeles on June 12, and the opportunity to hang out with the band before the show. Another sweepstakes prize is a chance to win one of five pairs of tickets per show. Winners will receive a mobile ticket sent to their Verizon Wireless handsets for two VIP admissions into the hottest Latin pop show in town. Text and song charges apply. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Sweepstakes ends June 4, 2009. Must be 18 years or older. See www.verizoninsider.com for free method of entry and official rules. Must be a Verizon Wireless customer to enter.

The backstage experience you won’t want to miss
Reik fans also have an opportunity to win a “Reik Backstage Experience!” including an acoustic performance by the band, a photo taken with the band and a signed Reik keepsake. For more information, visit www.reikenconcierto.com.

The Ultimate Green Screen
At each Reik show, fans get a chance to star in a music video with Reik via green screen technology. Fans can appear as though they are rocking out onstage alongside Reik onstage to the hit songs “Fui” and “Inolvidable.” Video clips will be sent directly to fans’ Verizon Wireless phones, so they can share with friends and family. Non-Verizon Wireless customers are also invited to get in on the act, and can check www.reikenconcierto.com or www.vcastlive.com to see if they made the “Best Of’ section.

Reik at Verizon Wireless Stores
Reik fans are invited to meet Reik members Julio, Jesus and Bibi when they appear in person at five participating Verizon Wireless Communications Stores in support of their “Un Día Más” tour. The band members will conduct 90-minute autograph signing sessions, which start at 4:00 p.m. The bands’ time will be limited, so fans who truly want to meet Reik are encouraged to arrive early and secure a place in line. There will also be fun games and ticket giveaways to keep everyone entertained while they wait.
