Operation: Dare to Believe!
If you attend TFNation in 2018 you'll have the touch! You'll have the power! Most importantly, you'll also have the Emmy award-winning, Transformers Hall of Famer, Stan Bush!
To Transformers fans, Stan is best known for performing iconic songs "The Touch" and "Dare" which featured prominently in 1986's Transformers: The Movie. He has subsequently released additional tracks inspired by the Cybertronians, perhaps most notably, 2007's "Till All Are One".
As well as appearing on countless releases of Transformers: The Movie, his work can also be heard during the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game.
Of course, there is much more to Stan's arsenal than giant robots! He is an Emmy award-winning artist who has released fourteen studio albums over an incredible 35-year career. His most recent album, "Change the World", was released in 2017 and is available at www.stanbush.com and on itunes.
Stan has also lent his considerable talents to various movies such as The Wraith (1986) and Kickboxer (1989). He provided music for the US dub of Sailor Moon and most recently, the Netflix series GLOW. In the video game world, as well as the aforementioned Transformers: War for Cybertron, his work has also been included on Saints Row IV and even Guitar Hero!
We'll be putting Stan right in the eye of the storm for the full weekend of TFNation 2018, where he will be participating in panels, meeting fans and signing autographs at no additional cost.
In addition, Stan has kindly offered to perform a full concert for his fans at TFNation!
The concert will take place on the Saturday evening of the convention, after the conclusion of our "Clubcon" evening entertainment for weekend pass holders. Like all events taking place at TFNation, attendance is strictly subject to availability and room capacity.
We appreciate this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity for many of our attendees so, to ensure the concert is as impressive as it deserves to be, TFNation has hired suitable function space, instruments, a professional audio set up and a full live band. This is an additional event, taking place beyond our usual budget, so to accommodate these extra measures (and to avoid a price rise across all ticket types) there will be an additional concert entrance fee.
Tickets will be available from our website, in addition to regular TFNation packages, on 3rd February 2018. For Saturday only attendees, concert tickets will be £20.00. For full weekend pass holders, concert tickets will be on sale at the reduced price of £15.00.
At this time we do not have plans to open ticket sales to non-attendees, as we believe demand will be extremely high and it is important to us that TFNation attendees have first option to watch Stan in action. We may reassess the position closer to the event, but only if available places and capacity allow.
After all is said and done, Stan Bush will be joining TFNation for the entire duration of the convention, from 17th to 19th August 2018, at a place where dreams survive; the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel!
Launch tickets, bedrooms details, further guests and activities will be announced in the coming months. Keep monitoring this frequency.

Where All Are One
Didn't Stan sing in the end credits of Transformers Devastation? Sure sounds like him:
Ah that's pretty damn cool.
It's funny to me that TFNation had 2 guests already announced compared to just one from TFCon so far despite Nation happening after Con.
Maybe I can get him to sign these...
...'til all are one and stan's performance with vince dicola at botcon '97 were absolute highlights of my nineties fandom; i'm super-excited for all you UK folks this year...
Enjoy the concert to those who will be attending.
Stan is a great guy!!! I metaphorically tripped on him at Botcon 2016. He was sitting in his booth, with a small, portable DVD player and the '86 TF Movie playing on the corner of his table. I stopped by with the kids to take a breather and sit them in front of said TV, having no idea who was at the booth! I couldn't believe how normal and approachable the guy was, and he was super nice to his mini-fans! I truly did not have enough time or forethought to properly thank the guy for his awesome work (and the kids were too young to even understand they were talking to the singer of 2 of their fave songs!), but it was an amazing experience meeting the guy!
If any of ya'll are in that general area, I'd heartily recommend you plan a visit to TFNation, just to meet him! And I hope he makes another USA appearance soon, so that NEXT TIME, the kids can properly thank the guy!
