NEW YORK, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI)
announced today that Kenny Chesney will perform at New York City's Highline
Ballroom for an exclusive, invitation-only concert for SiriusXM listeners on
Wednesday, May 1.
The "Early Kick Off to Summer" concert, which will be broadcast on Saturday,
May 4 at 8:00 pm ET on The Highway, channel 59, will feature the only artist
to sell in excess of a million tickets on each of his last ten tours,
performing several of his 24 number one hits, as well as songs from the
largely self-penned Life On A Rock, which also features guest appearances from
Willie Nelson and the Wailers Band and is scheduled to be released on April
"As part of our unmatched offering of country music, Kenny Chesney will give
our subscribers a special performance," said Scott Greenstein, President and
Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "Kenny is often playing stadiums and arenas,
but for SiriusXM he'll be doing a special intimate performance for a few
hundred lucky subscribers who can see him perform live at the Highline
Ballroom. Our national audience of subscribers will be able to hear the
concert on SiriusXM, an unwavering supporter of all kinds of country music.
This special concert is another example of what we like to bring our
listeners: the best country music they can't find anywhere else."
"To be able to strip it down and create the same kind of vibe that reflects
this new record makes me really fired up," says the man who's won eight
Entertainer of the Years at the Academy of Country Music and Country Music
Association Awards, as well as being voted Favorite Artist at the American
Music Awards. "It's tricky when you do the kinds of shows we do to take it
into a venue small enough for this music to be heard properly... and I love
the idea that not just the few hundred who get in, but everyone listening to
SiriusXM's The Highway will be able to be part of this very special night of
songs and stories."
