75 hours of non-stop Adele
92.7 Mix FM is holding a local resident in a small room for 75 hours straight, subjecting her to Adele’s Rolling In the Deep 1,500 times.
It’ all in a bid to win free tickets to the star’s upcoming concert at The Gabba in Brisbane.
The competition was devised by the network’s breakfast duo, Mark and Caroline. If she succeeds, 48-year-old Evonne Mitchell from Sunshine Beach will score two Gold tickets to see Adele live.
“We thought no one would commit to more than one full day; one full hour would be enough for most people,” Caroline said. “We think Evonne is brave, dedicated and clearly just a little bit crazy.”
After hearing about the crazy competition, Mitchell’s teenage kids dared their mum to step up to the plate next week and risk insanity on their behalf.
Mark has promised the contestant no mercy. “We have told Evonne she will be required to be in the Adele Room from 4am-7pm every day next week, 75 hours of nonstop Adele, and if she walks out midway, she loses the tickets,” he said.
Luckily for Evonne, the network has promised they will take appropriate measures to monitor her health and well-being throughout the course of the gruelling 75 hour period.
92.7 Mix FM Marketing & Promotions Director, Brooke Bennett said, “Evonne will be fed and watered, with appropriate toilet breaks, but she will be completely isolated for 75 hours, with no phone or distractions, she will not be allowed to sleep, and the whole thing will be broadcast via Facebook Live”.
