In just 8 days, the biggest names in music will all be found in one amazing location known as Las Vegas, Nevada. Sin City is definitely going to get pretty wild next weekend when the likes of Lady GaGa, The Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Carrie Underwood, and more, descend upon the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
Tickets for the fest have been long gone, as in they were gone 10 minutes after they went on sale. Yes, that was no typo, it took 10 minutes for the thousands of tickets to sell out after the box office opened in July.
This tidbit only backs the claim that this has got to be one of the most highly-anticipated music events ever, perhaps even topping Woodstock in anticipation. If you weren’t one of the lucky few to grab a ticket, local radio stations are still giving away individual and packaged tickets – that’s about your only shot left at getting into this coveted music fest.
Currently, there are 8 artists geared to perform on Friday, Sept. 23, and another 9 that are scheduled for the following day, Saturday, Sept. 24. Here is a breakdown of who will be performing:
September 23, 2011-
The Black Eyed Peas
September 24, 2011-
Sublime with Rome
Also of importance: Kenny, the Rascal Flatts, and GaGa are planning on performing a number together that will be sure to “remix” the crowd into pandemonium, me thinks.
Lastly, its been announced that two very special guests in Usher and Sting will be making cameo appearances on the second day of the event. Yes, Sting is still alive ladies and gentleman.
