It looks like Ryan Seacrest is one step closer to world domination. The Radio DJ/American Idol host/E! News guy/Keeping Up With The Kardashians producer is now putting together a massive iHeartRadio concert featuring the music world’s biggest stars.
Just listen to the lineup that Ryan has secured thus far. Lady Gaga, Coldplay,Sting, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Nicki Minaj, and John Mayer are just a few of the notables looking to grace the stage. And don’t think that there won’t be a strong Latino presence there. Reports are also coming in about Bruno Mars joining the festivities.
“This is a once in a generation gathering of artists and fans from all over the country for a true, must-see music event,” Seacrest saidwhen discussing the concert. “The iHeartRadio Music Festival will showcase top artists across all genres of music. Listeners from all over America will travel to Las Vegas to celebrate the next generation of iHeartRadio, while seeing the greatest musicians in the world on one stage.”
Co-produced by Clear Channel, the iHeartRadio concert is actually an extension of the iHeartRadio radio network, which delivers over 750 music stations. The concert would be a hodgepodge of everything iHeart offers, featuring top acts from a variety of genres.
Set to go down at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand in September, you can bet that concert tickets won’t be cheap. Seacrest will MC the affair, which will span an entire weekend. Not coincidentally, there will be several American Idol tie-ins as well. Not only will J.Lo be on board, but so will her fellow judge, Steven Tyler.
Tix are going on sale this Saturday and even if you can’t make it, there will still be plenty of opportunities to hear the performances. The entire concert will be streamed live on the iHeartRadio website and broadcast on all Clear Channel-owned radio stations.
