Three lucky fans from countries around the world will win a pair of
tickets, travel and accommodation for first studio recording which will
take place in South Africa in July
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 2, 2016--
(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today announced that the first ever studio
recording of the new Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May
Amazon Original Series The Grand Tour will take place in
Johannesburg, South Africa, in July. The pre-recorded studio section of
the program will be filmed in front of a live audience, all housed
within a giant tent.
To celebrate, Amazon is giving fans in countries around the world the
opportunity to win one of three pairs of tickets, travel and
accommodation to be part of the recording in Johannesburg. To enter, and
give inspiration to Jeremy, Richard and James on potential locations for
their traveling tent, customers should share a photo or video of the
most unusual place they’ve ever pitched a tent via Twitter, using the
hashtag #TheGrandTourJoburg. The top 10 entries shared by June 8 will be
shortlisted by an Amazon Prime Video panel, and the final winners will
be picked by Clarkson, Hammond and May. Complete details can be found at www.amazon.co.uk/Joburg.
“We love that Jeremy, Richard and James are touring the studio
recordings of The Grand Tour, bringing this Amazon Original
Series to fans around the world,” said Jay Marine, VP of Amazon Video
Europe. “Given the popularity of Jeremy, Richard and James in South
Africa, Johannesburg is a fantastic place to start. We’re excited to
give fans the opportunity to be part of the first ever live studio
audience for The Grand Tour.”
The Grand Tour will launch this fall for Amazon Prime members and
the new travelling format means Amazon Video customers around the world
will have the chance to be in the audience for the recordings in their
country when tickets are released through sweepstakes this summer.
Details of the location schedule and information on how to apply for
tickets will be announced shortly. Fans can follow The Grand Tour on
