We are aware that the hype surrounding the release of the fourth and final book in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, is reaching a fever pitch, and that we’ve certainly done some fan-flaming around here. (See! Our goofy cartoon vampire proves we can have a laugh at our role in this phenomenon!) BUT we really do have something super-special going on, exclusive to EW.com: video of the Breaking Dawn Concert Tour, which we will be streaming live from 7-8:30 p.m. Friday (Aug. 1), and replaying again at 9 and midnight EST. The event will feature Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October, performing several songs that have appeared on Meyer’s own music playlists. (Check out "Hate Me" on the band’s MySpace page.) Meyer says that Furstenfeld’s music has played a major role in her writing, and has even inspired scenes in the Twilight saga.
PopWatchers, what do you think? Does the music enhances the experience of reading the books for you? And will you be going to one of the other three Breaking Dawn-themed shows in Chicago (on Aug 5), Los Angeles (Aug 7), and Seattle (Aug 12)?
