RED BULL SOUND SPACE AT KROQ LAUNCHES WITH LIVE COLDPLAY PERFORMANCE ON KEVIN & BEAN SHOW
Unique Venue to Stream Live Performances of Top Musical Acts
Los Angeles, CA (October 10, 2011) – THE WORLD FAMOUS KROQ today announced a partnership with Red Bull to unveil a new performance space which will host a series of intimate live rock shows from top music acts throughout the year. Located in KROQ’s Culver City radio station, “Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ” will fuse together an on-air broadcast with a live USTREAM webcast, inviting fans from around the world to a front row seat at this new “global” venue.
Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ will officially launch on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 during Kevin & Bean’s Breakfast with renowned KROQ artist, Coldplay. Coldplay will perform songs from their upcoming release, Mylo Xyloto, as well as tracks from previous albums. Fans will also be treated to an exclusive Q&A with the band by LA’s top rated morning show team. Southern California fans can listen live on 106.7FM KROQ or view the globally streamed webcast via www.kroq.com/soundspace and www.redbullusa.com/soundspace at 7:30am PDT/10:30am EDT.
What was once an office space packed with hum-drum cubicles is now home to a stage evoking the spirit of underground rock and roll. KROQ listener donations of old audio equipment such as ’40s-era radios, record players, and blinged-out boomboxes were turned into a piece of artwork behind the stage.
Coldplay has released four internationally acclaimed studio albums and are set to release their latest effort, Mylo Xyloto, on Monday, October 24. The album already boasts two Top 10 singles, “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall” and “Paradise”.
The partnership between KROQ and Red Bull expands upon both entities’ impressive legacies in music. For more than 20 years, Red Bull has given wings to musicians from all over the world to create, collaborate and innovate through unique programs- from Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles, Auckland, London and Cape Town, to live events such as Red Bull Sound Clash, a record label featuring indie artists such as AWOLNATION and the globally acclaimed Red Bull Music Academy.
KROQ is responsible for introducing The Ramones and The Sex Pistols in the ‘70s. The station also helped launch the careers of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Linkin Park, Sublime and No Doubt. KROQ’s influence on what SoCal listens to and its success of launching some of the biggest bands in the world make KROQ a station like no other. “The World Famous KROQ” started out as a self-deprecating slogan, but is now very much a reality.
