Ben Moody has posted on his personal twitter that he will give away 5 DVD copies of Cirque Des Damnes to 5 people who post “twitter proof” of themselves doing something “selfless/charitable” by Friday.
Here are his tweets:

Something tells me we will be finding out soon about a download of this concert, though perhaps not a physical DVD.
