Nintendo Fusion Tour
The Nintendo Fusion Tour was a touring event featuring rock music and video games that ran annually between 2003 and 2006. It was sponsored by Nintendo and various third party partners, was produced by Clear Channel Entertainment and booked by The Agency Group. It featured various titles and demos on the Nintendo GameCube, Wii, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. Many of the bands who received early exposure from the tour went on to widespread notoriety, including Evanescence, Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Finger Eleven and My Chemical Romance. The tour had between 25-45 stops and initially took place in September and October, but later lasted into November as it increased in scope and fan turnout from year to year. While at least one year had a stop in Toronto, Canada, the tour was otherwise limited to the United States of America.
