“This has become Alternative Music’s biggest night,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Millions of fans will be listening and watching this incredible lineup performing on stage at the Forum.”

Beginning December 26, iHeartRadio will launch a nationwide promotion to give fans across the country the opportunity
to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend the show. The promotion will run across more than 85 Alternative, Rock and Classic Rock 90s iHeartRadio stations.

Listeners will have access to a limited number of tickets to iHeartRadio ALTer Ego through ALT 98.7, LA’s New Alternative, 24-hour Pre-Sale beginning Thursday, October 4 at 10:00 am PT through Friday, October 5 at 10:00 am PT.
