Last night at the downtown Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium, a group of 2,500 The Fault in Our Stars fans welcomed actors Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff to the Music City with screams (and often tears) of joy. The highly anticipated film adaptation of the #1 best-selling young adult fiction novel of the same name arrives in theaters on June 6th, but Nashville fans had an exclusive sneak peek of the film last night. The author of the book John Green was on hand as well yesterday evening to walk the red carpet, introduce a 10-minute clip of never-before-seen footage of the film and participate in an audience Q&A alongside the cast members.
The Nashville event is one of four fan events that took place this week across the country as a part of a nationwide contest with Tumblr where fans were able to vote to ‘Demand Our Stars’ in their city. Almost 200,000 votes in this contest landed Tennessee on the ‘Demand Our Stars’ tour schedule, as well as Miami, Florida (Tuesday, May 6), Cleveland, Ohio (Wednesday, May 7) and Dallas, Texas (tonight, Friday, May 9).
