“(Pending a COVID test) I’ll be happy to roll up my sleeves (sport a mask, a face shield and anything else to obscure my face) and help kick off 2021 proper, with a unique ALTer Ego production that will serve as warm-up for the impending return to normalcy,” said Woody.

The star-studded event will livestream exclusively for FREE on LiveXLive.com (NASDAQ: LIVX) and on the LiveXLive mobile and OTT apps for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV and broadcast live across more than 80 Alternative and Rock iHeartRadio stations on January 28 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT.

“Back again for a fourth year, the 2021 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO is bringing the best in Alternative Rock directly to your home,” said Lisa Worden, Program Director for ALT 98.7 and Vice President Rock and Alternative for iHeartMedia. “Fans will get treated to performances from the past 3 years of ALTer Ego that haven’t been seen or heard since that night. Plus, Billie and the Foos play new sets and tell some awesome stories. It’s going to be incredible and it’s free! WHAT?!”
