The coronavirus deprived us of many massive shows by big bands. However, that does not mean that there are no other alternatives. In this case, we are talking about the national festival of iHeart Radio ALT 98.7, which will be distributed through the Internet.
The date will be January 28, 2021, which will become the fourth presentation of this event. The idea is that fans of different bands can see the best of international rock from the comfort of home, so there will be different renowned artists who will try to stand out. Let's see the most important ones.
The best artists of the iHeart Radio Alter Ego Live 2020
The first thing to mention is that, according to the Rolling Stones, there are 5 bands and artists who will be the ones who will lead this virtual festival. Basically, Coldplay, Twenty One Pilots, Blink-182, Billie Eilish, and Foo Fighters will be the leaders this time, being musicians who are going through an excellent moment in musical terms. In the case of Billie Eilish and Foo Fighters, they will take this opportunity to present new music.
The first is one of the artists of the moment, who recently turned 19 years old. That is, at a young age she managed to dominate the tracks, through an alternative pop, which is mixed with electronic bases. Her unmistakable voice style makes her one of the most talented artists to date, so it is likely that we will have several of the tracks from her -so far- only studio album.
This is When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go ?, which was a huge success in sales, with more than 6 million copies sold to date. However, lately, she released some interesting singles, such as My Future or Therefore I Am, so it is likely that she will play them in that performance.
Continuing with the Foo Fighters, we will see that they will take the opportunity to promote the songs of their new studio album: Medicine at Midnight, which will be released on February 5, 2021, after a delay due to COVID-19. Therefore, fans will be able to discover some of the new songs of this mythical band, which is one of the greatest exponents of the alternative rock scene.
As we mentioned, in addition to these two artists the list will be complemented by other renowned bands. Coldplay will take the opportunity to play their biggest hits, Twenty One Pilots will seek to surprise with their enormous live sound power and Blink-182 will have the opportunity to manifest all that power that characterizes their pop punk sound.
As if that weren't enough, we will also have other performances by bands that are really important to the rock scene. Among them, we highlight Beck, The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant, The Killers, Muse, Mumford & Sons and Weezer. All of them will be playing on January 28, 2021, at 9pm ET / 6pm PT, through LiveXLive.com, free of charge. It can also be viewed from mobile applications on iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV. Do not miss it!
