Want to open for B.o.B.? Then take an Uber ride

Some aspiring performers go on TV talent shows. Others make the rounds in local clubs.

On Thursday, hopeful singers, songwriters and rappers who want a shot at opening for B.o.B. at his Atlanta tour stop can take an Uber ride for the opportunity.

The Atlanta rapper, who performs at Center Stage June 23, has teamed with the ride-share service to bring potential show openers to a secret audition location – and in true Uber fashion, wants it to be a shared experience.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Download the Uber App
  2. Request the “Talent Pool”option between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 21 in Atlanta
  3. Enter the destination provided via email Thursday (make sure you click the link below)
  4. Similar to uberPOOL, if connected, “Talent Pool” may match you with another music hopeful heading to the audition
  5. Arrive at the audition and we’ll instruct you from there
