Veeps and iHeartMedia Partner to Livestream the 2024 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO Presented by Capital One

LOS ANGELES; November 29, 2023 – On Saturday, January 13, 2024 at 9 p.m. CST, the biggest names in alternative rock will come together for the sold-out 2024 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO Presented by Capital One, and premier streaming platform Veeps will be airing it LIVE exclusively for Veeps All Access subscribers. The livestream will feature an extraordinary selection of talent from the lineup including sets from Paramore, The 1975, The Black Keys, Thirty Seconds to Mars, BUSH, Sum 41, Yellowcard, lovelytheband, and The Last Dinner Party.

This is the second year in a row that Veeps and iHeartMedia have partnered to offer live video streaming and an interactive digital concert format of one of iHeartMedia’s roster of incredibly successful, nationally recognized concert events, extending access to the performances beyond the fans who are able to attend in person.

"This year's ALTer EGO livestream saw an average watch time of more than 1.5 hours across the tens of thousands of fans that tuned in which blew our minds, yet was also somewhat unsurprising given how devoted alt rock fans are, so we knew we had to do it again for them," said Kyle Heller, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Veeps.

“Our ALTer EGO is now the only live music event where fans can see a gathering of the most iconic names in alternative rock on one stage on one night,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Partnering with Veeps again this year will help us to share this incredible lineup to alternative music fans across the country.” 

Alternative music fans will be able to view the January 13 stream on Veeps.com or via the Veeps app on Apple TV, Roku, iOS, and Android. The stream will be available exclusively to subscribers to All Access — Veeps’ subscription service — with monthly ($11.99/mo. with no minimum term) or annual ($120/yr) plans available. As in previous years, iHeartRadio ALTer EGO will broadcast on iHeartRadio Alternative and Rock stations across the country, on iHeartRadio.com and on the iHeartRadio app.

The 2019 iHeartRadio ALTer Ego Brings Alternative Rock’s Biggest Superstars Together For Star-Studded Concert At The Forum In Los Angeles

Twenty One Pilots, The Killers, Muse, Weezer, Rise Against, Bishop Briggs and The Revivalists To Perform Live On One Stage 

New York, NY – January 21, 2019 – The 2019 iHeartRadio ALTer Ego, which featured the biggest names in Alternative Rock concluded Saturday evening with unforgettable performances from Twenty One Pilots, The Killers, Muse, Weezer, Rise Against, Bishop Briggs and The Revivalists, at the historic, “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles, California. The event also included special guest appearances by Darren Criss, Audrina Patridge, Teddi Mellencamp, Sarah Hyland, Wells Adams, Annaliese Puccini, Kendall Long, Ariana Madix, and Brandon Larracuente.

The event broadcasted live across over 70 Alternative and Rock iHeartRadio stations and livestreamed on LiveXLive, a global digital media company focused on live entertainment. 

Now in its second year, the music of iHeartRadio’s popular Alternative Rock stations and the iHeartRadio App came to life with an extraordinary lineup that included these special moments:

  • Twenty One Pilots kicked off their set with a performance of their single, "Jumpsuit." In the pitch black arena, the band's Josh Dun walked out on stage carrying a torch while Tyler Joseph appeared in a black ski mask and his guitar as a car went up in flames behind him.
  • Off the release of their new politically charged single, “Land of the Free,” The Killers and frontman Brandon Flowers revved up the crowd, performing "The Man," "Mr. Brightside," "Somebody Told Me," "Human," "Space Man," "All These Things I've Done," "Read My Mind," and "When You Were Young."
  • Weezer hit the stage at iHeartRadio's ALTer EGO ahead of kicking off their spring 2019 tour to give fans a glimpse of what to expect, including performances of new tracks “Can’t Knock The Hustle” and “Zombie Bastards,” off their forthcoming album Invasion of Privacy, also known as The Black Album. Frontman Rivers Cuomo was joined by longtime bandmates Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell and Scott Shriner and delivered an epic medley of hits ranging from 1994’s “Undone (the Sweater Song)" to their current hit cover of Toto's "Africa."
  • Rise Against rocked the stage with their soaring guitar riffs, but the band had a big surprise for fans as they brought out Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello to perform "How Long." As Tim McIlrath sang, Morello continued to shred through the track with his guitar – using his teeth to do so, a true Rockstar moment.
  • The Revivalists truly embrace their fans – during their set lead singer David Shaw left the stage to serenade and shake hands with lucky guests. The band played a five-song set, which included tracks like "Oh No," "Change," their smash hit "All My Friends," the very dance-worthy, "You & I" and "Wish I Knew You."
  • Bishop Briggs, the first-ever female to headline the show, opened her with a raw rendition of “The Way I Do,” followed by jams “Hallowed Ground,” “White Flag,” “Wild Horses,” "Baby" and breakout hit “River." Mid-performance, Briggs joyously celebrated saying, "I'm the woman on this lineup! And I'm going to try not to cry ... there was the Women's March today and I just want to thank iHeart and 98.7 for representing female musicians so thank you."
  • Muse closed the 2019 iHeartRadio ALTer Ego. The band started off their set with their song "Pressure," followed by "Psycho," but one of the highlights of their performance was during fan favorite, "Uprising” – during the song Bellamy let everyone at The Forum sing in unison – a true uprising. 

iHeartRadio ALTer Ego is part of iHeartMedia’s roster of nationally-recognized events including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the nationwide iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour Presented by Capital One®, iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, the iHeartCountry Festival, the iHeartRadio Podcast Awards and iHeartRadio Wango Tango.
