iHeartMedia announced on Friday (Dec. 18) the lineup for its fourth annual ALTer EGO concert, featuring throwback performances from Beck, The Black Keys, Blink-182, Cage The Elephant, Coldplay, The Killers, Mumford & Sons, Muse, Twenty One Pilots and Weezer.
Hosted by ALT 98.7’s Woody, the virtual event will take place on January 28, 2021 and will also include new performances and stories from Billie Eilish and the Foo Fighters.
“(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 in a press statement.
“Back again for a fourth year, the 2021 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO is bringing the best in Alternative Rock directly to your home,” Lisa Worden, program director for ALT 98.7 and vice president rock and alternative for iHeartMedia, added. “Fans will get treated to performances from the past three 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?!”
The star-studded event, presented by Capital One, will livestream for free on LiveXLive.com and on the LiveXLive mobile and OTT apps for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV. The show will also broadcast across more than 80 alternative and rock iHeartRadio stations on January 28 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT.
