Homerpalooza Prize Guide: Act 1 (Rock), Prize 6 Sungazer Studios & Peter D’Abbruzio

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Put another dime in a jukebox and grab your dancing shoes, because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield!  Yes, the biggest music fest to hit our pocket-sized Springfields since the Singing Stones is live and rocking on our devices!  The latest event in TSTO has us feeling the beat as we experience different genres of music…with a little Weird Al thrown in the mix!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Acts containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the first Act, Rock, you’re tasked with collecting Cuffs () to unlock each prize!

The sixth Rock Prize awarded at 48,300 is Sungazer Studio and Peter D’Abbruzio, because you can have Rock and Roll without a mullet sporting rocker??

So let’s take a closer look at this sixth prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 48,300 you’ll automatically be awarded Peter and the Studio and you’ll see this message popup:

And you’ll have the option to place him in your Springfield or store in your inventory for later.  Remember if you store him you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it.

Once you place the studio in your Springfield and build it (4hr build time) you’ll see Peter’s character unlock message popup:

And he’s part of the Homerpalooza Rock 2017 Character Collection…

  1. I finally got Peter and the studio in a mystery box this week after I just missed out on it last year. Now I also have a task he needs to perform but somehow I cannot finish the task. He needs to jam for 4 hours which I have him do several times now but the task remains unfinished. Any ideas?

  2. This is the first event that I have missed the Acts final prize despite playing 3-4 times a day. I seem to have an issue since this event launched that the game won’t sync between devices despite forcing a sync by visiting friends etc. Because of this several times I sent people to jam (on my tablet at home) only to find that when I log on 4 hours later (on my mobile while at work) to clear them they are just walking round my town 😦

  3. Ugh! I was going to buy donuts to get Otto’s rockin self on stage and now he isn’t available ☹️ Do you think they will bring him back at the end of the event? Bummer Dude!

  4. I missed him by that much

  5. I hope they add a 4 hr task for him after the event ends.

  6. Sungazer Studio and Peter D’Abbruzio

    The Studio is in Springfield Heights … 👍
    Peter D’Abbruzio was great to earn over the weekend as you get another Springfield Character who can Jam 🎸
    Earned my Bonuts / KEM Farmed, let’s see what Act Two offers tomorrow

    • I put mine next to Jay G.’s house against the Mtn. range in my regular Springfield next to Burns summer mansion. I love it! Especially when it’s lit up.

  7. Quick question about saving daily challenge rewards – If I have 3 saved already and ready to redeem tomorrow, will I get a 4th one? Or should I leave a spot open for the new challenge I’ll get tomorrow (I.e. Redeem one and wait to redeem the other two tomorrow?) Just want to maximize both the event currency and progress towards free donuts :p

  8. I had a glitch while tapping lawyers. When I tapped the Lawyer it didn’t disappear. I was able to tap the same lawyer multiple times. I got a really decent payout but it only happened once. I guess some performers won’t earn event currency if they don’t have the pink sunglasses icon for the ACT 2 pop music. I want LT Smash and the Party Posse. I hope Leon Kompowski cones with the Insane Asylum building. Will the crafting level increase? I’m at level 16 so I think we’ll get new crafting items.

  9. I wish it wasn’t so hard to see the lawyers 🙁

      I find if I send all characters on tasks, alot of them are in buildings. The less in town the easier it is to spot them. Can’t count how many times I’ve clicked on the Blue haired Lawyer though lol

    • Hit the 4 arrow button and tell it to close the eye on all buildings etc. but the people. Then look for them. It has changed everything for me. So much easier.

    • Send all your characters on tasks, go into edit mode and turn off everything except characters. Zoom out as far as you can go, pan back and forth through your town and the lawyers should stick out quite clearly.

  10. My design for this hasn’t been designed yet as I don’t have much land and all. However I have squished it into Heights. The plan is to incorporate it into my forest area, like a Camp Krusty kinda thing but not. So they have their get away with their van and the thread shed (I got Sungazer Bus) Using the Rock Camp thing. So thats my idea

  11. I like the look of the studio. It’s really more like a beach house.

  12. I hope we can still drop lawyers in Act II. 🙂

  13. Does anyone know what today’s update did, beside centering the screen on the stage?
