On Thursday night in NYC, Samsung celebrated the launch of its Samsung Experience Shops at Best Buy locations nationwide, as well as the arrival of the brand new Galaxy S 4 smartphone, with a big ‘ole megabash!
To get the party started, Rev Run (of Run DMC) joined DJ Ruckus for a 45-minute set, after which guests were treated to an intimate concert by Bruno Mars, who played fan favorites including “Locked Out of Heaven,” “Marry you,” “Treasure” and “When I Was Your Man.”
At the concert, guests – including Rosario Dawson, singer Jason Derulo, Katrina Bowden (30 Rock) and Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire) – were treated to an interactive experience resembling a giant Samsung Experience Shop featuring all of Samsung’s hottest new technology such as the brand new Galaxy S 4 smartphone and Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, as well as the Galaxy Camera, the Galaxy Note II and more.
Fans used the Galaxy S 4’s new camera feature Dual Shot to take a photo of the concert and themselves at the same time. Throughout the evening, guests earned tokens to redeem for prizes including Free Bruno Mars Music Download, Fedora, Samsung Muse MP3, Serious Sound Ear Buds and Samsung products including the Galaxy Note 10.0, Galaxy S 4, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Camera and a Samsung 46” Smart TV!
