Brownie points to whoever remembers what special day it is today
IT’S THUKST’S FIFTH ANNIVERSARY!!!
Hard to believe that it’s already been five years since Claire founded the UK Street Team in the beginning of May 2007, and that our first online platform, the THUKST Myspace, was officially launched on 23rd May 2007.
It’s been a bumpy ride since then and there have certainly been some frustrating and sad times. But there have also been some wonderful times, and your passion, love and support have always given us the strength to make it through and to hold on to our dream of Tokio Hotel coming back to the UK one day… or even actually releasing their music here would be fine for a start. XD
Another year has gone by and we fondly remember the fun and happy times you, our THUKST family, and our friends and supporters worldwide have given us. So here’s a huge THANK YOU to all of you. We love you and hope we’ll always be by each other’s sides!
It wouldn’t be a proper anniversary without a little excitement though, right? We’ve got two things for all fans from the UK and Ireland –
1) some prizes to win today, in a Twitter giveaway, including a Humanoid City Live DVD/CD combo, a copy of the Japanese WWD magazine with the twins photoshoot, and a Spring Nicht DVD single plus a ‘Passion for Music’ bag
2) how would you feel about a little THUKST Meet-Up in London later this year?
We don’t have the financial means or backing for anything spectacular, but UK fans have continued to ask us about a Meet-Up and it seems the year of our 5th Anniversary would be a good time to get something organised, even if it’s only something low-key. We will open a discussion thread (including a poll to vote for a date) on our forum on JUNE 8TH, together with a slightly bigger THUKST Anniversary competition where you can win a signed “Zimmer 483” Deluxe Edition.
We know many of you are still very busy with exams so we decided on only doing the quick prize give-aways on Twitter today, and saving the bigger competition and meet up discussion for the date in June. Allow yourselves a little break from studying tonight and seize your chance of winning a prize! Viel Glück!
