Muse, The Killers, Twenty One Pilots to headline iHeartRadio’s ALTer Ego concert

Muse, Twenty One Pilots, and the Killers are just some of the rock bands that will make their way to California in early 2019 for iHeartRadio’s second annual ALTer Ego concert. On Monday (Oct. 1), the media giant confirmed the lineup for their alternative music-centric show. Joining Twenty One Pilots, Muse and the Killers on the newly announced roster will be Weezer, Rise Against, Bishop Briggs, and the Revivalists.

According to a press release, the event will broadcast live across over 70 alternative and rock iHeartRadio stations, giving listeners who couldn’t make it the show the opportunity to hear some of rock’s biggest artists live.

“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.”

“This will be one of the strongest alternative performance lineups to ever appear on one stage,” mirrors 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.”

Those who would like to attend the event will be given a special 24-hour, pre-sale offer courtesy of Los Angeles alternative radio station, ALT 98.7. ALT 98.7’s pre-sale will begin this Thursday, Oct. 4, at 10 a.m. PST and conclude this Friday, Oct. 5, at 10 a.m. PST. General ticket sales will then begin on Friday at 10 a.m.

iHeartRadio’s ALTer Ego concert will take place on Jan. 19, 2019 at the Forum in Los Angeles.

ALTer Ego joins a lengthy list of iHeartRadio concert series including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the iHeartRadio Music Awards, iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball concert tour, the newly launched iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T, and the iHeartRadio Wango Tango by AT&T.

The Revivalists to release new music in November

On Thursday (Sept. 14), the Louisiana-founded band confirmed the release of their fourth studio album during their sold-out show at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. Titled Take Good Care, the forthcoming effort will see a release date of Nov. 9 through Loma Vista Recordings.

Pre-orders for the 14-track album are currently available on the band’s website. All pre-orders will receive instant downloads of the record’s lead single, “All My Friends,” and “You and I,” a song that until now has been an unreleased fan favorite of the band’s live shows.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the seven-piece has unleashed the official studio recording of “You and I.” Listen to the official version of the fan favorite above.

Take Good Care will mark the first time the band has recorded and co-written with multiple producers and writers.
