Rocksmith to revolutionise karaoke parties for budding rock stars, say allfancydress.com

In the next stage in evolution of guitar games such as Guitar Hero™, Rocksmith is expected to take the world by storm with its combination of authentic guitar techniques and killer soundtracks making it an ideal way for budding rock stars to strut their stuff, replacing the karaoke microphone for a Rickenbacker.

While karaoke parties are still incredibly popular to host with friends and family, this new generation of musical entertainment is expected to sweep the nation, with an appeal to newbies and experts alike, says Mark Heaton, of allfancydress.com.

“Whether it’s a fun-filled birthday, a long-awaited hen night or an impromptu night in with friends, for years karaoke has filled the void for wannabee pop stars across the world,” he said.

“But for those who have always wanted to be in a band, Rocksmith is a great way for friends to get together and rock out to their favourite hits.

“Whether it’s a riff from the Rolling Stones or a high note by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the ability to practice songs and play venues gives people a real sense of achievement in a way karaoke has never managed to grasp.”

A number of leading guitarists were invited to Gibson Guitar Studio in London to trial Rocksmith and ascertain whether it could really develop guitar playing technique. The general consensus was encouraging, with many believing the game to be a genuinely innovative way of introducing people into guitar music.

The UK’s leading online fancy dress retailer, All Fancy Dress has a number of novelty rock star outfits that would be the ideal accompaniment to any Rocksmith party with friends, with costumes modelled on greats such as Freddie Mercury, Bon Jovi and Alice Cooper.

Rocksmith is now available to buy across Europe following its release on September 28th and is available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
