Erasure's Andy Bell To Headline First 'International Bear Convergence' In Palm Springs!

​ ​

A new event that sounds right down our alley (pun not intended!) is the International Bear Convergence, which makes its grrrand debut in Palm Springs next month. What better way for an international event of this size to make an entrance than by snagging an icon like Erasure's Andy Bell as a headliner?

The PR reads:

The first International Bear Convergence event will be held in Palm Springs, President's Day Weekend, 2014. The event attracting men from all over the world, associated with the LGBT subset known as ‘Bears”, will bring hundreds of thousands of revenue and tax dollars to a city that already hosts the White Party and Dinah Shore Weekend.  Over 4000 men are expected to attend this event being hosted at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel.  The hotel is already over 70% sold.  

Some of the event's largest sponsors are MillerCoors of Chicago, Illinois, Monster Energy Drinks and PNN Media Group. Dj's on board for this event so far are Dj David Knapp, DJ John LePage, Dj Candy vs Ryan Jones, Dj Doug Jackson & Dj Chub Jim  

The event is also proud to announce that Andy Bell of Erasure will be performing at the Sunday night event and tickets are available at the door to the public!  Andy is set to perform many of Erasure's greatest hits and a few new songs from their upcoming album. 

Local retailers and restaurants will also benefit from attendance and business owners are excited to begin promoting Palm Springs to this international audience.

Event Producer Steve (Stevo) Harris and Co Producer Chris Vance are determined to make a splash in the World-wide Bear event circuit as this winter event will attract those seeking the perfect location for sun and fun.  “It was a long time coming” says Harris. “The Bear Community has grown considerably over the past ten years and it’s time to place an event in one of the gayest cities in the world with the most perfect weather."
