iHeartMedia Brings Alternative Rock’s Biggest Superstars Together for the 2019 “iHeartMedia ALTer Ego”
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--iHeartMedia, the leading audio company in America which also has a greater reach in the U.S. than any other media outlet, announced today the lineup for the second annual iHeartRadio ALTer Ego. The biggest names in Alternative Rock will come together at the historic, “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles on January 19, 2019 to celebrate everything Alternative Rock.
The music of iHeartRadio’s popular Alternative Rock stations and the iHeartRadio App will come to life with an extraordinary lineup including Twenty One Pilots, The Killers, Muse, Weezer, Rise Against, Bishop Briggs and The Revivalists.
“This will be one of the strongest alternative performance lineups to ever appear on one stage,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. “It’s such a strong lineup that it’s impossible to refer to any one of these incredible artists as the headliner – in fact, several of the performers have told us that it’s a show they would want to go to even if they weren’t already on the bill.”
iHeartRadio ALTer Ego is part of iHeartMedia’s roster of incredibly successful, nationally recognized concert events, including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, iHeartRadio Music Awards, the nationwide iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour, iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T and the iHeartRadio Wango Tango by AT&T.
“This has become Alternative Music’s biggest night,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Millions of fans will be listening and watching this incredible lineup performing on stage at the Forum.”
Beginning December 26, iHeartRadio will launch a nationwide promotion to give Alt-Rock fans across the country the opportunity to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend iHeartRadio ALTer Ego. The promotion will run across more than 85 Alternative, Rock and Classic Rock 90s iHeartRadio stations. The event will broadcast live across over 70 Alternative and Rock iHeartRadio stations.
