Activision Unveils New Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits Character
Introducing Calista Valenz, an all-new character joining the Guitar Hero rocking ranks
Thursday 30th April/… Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today unveiled Calista Valenz: an all-new character that will debut in Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits this summer.
Calista Valenz is tough as nails and sweet like candy, with a smile that can melt any man’s heart. Her motto is, “Fake it until you make it,” and she has a habit of telling strangers today is her birthday. Calista once volunteered to spend a week in jail for charity and was put behind bars on a Monday, got bored, and somehow escaped that Tuesday. She spent a month running from the law, even though no one was looking, and hid out at a night club. The rocker pretended to be a lead guitarist, and during her first show, a record promoter told her she was a no talent hack. She smacked him upside the head with a sausage and dumped spaghetti down his pants, all with a smile. He stood up and immediately signed her to a lifetime contract.
