'Fashion Rocks': Jennifer Lopez, Afrojack, Usher to Perform
Ryan Seacrest will host CBS' Sept. 9 spectacle at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, also featuring KISS, Pitbull and Miranda Lambert
The two-hour special celebrating fashion and music will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest and is executive produced by Richard Beckman of Three Lions Entertainment, Don Mischer of Don Mischer Productions and Seacrest. It will air live on CBS from Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
"'Fashion Rocks' is the only show that celebrates the inextricable link between fashion and music, a relationship that is more relevant today than ever before," said Three Lions Entertainment CEO Richard Beckman in a statement. "For the first time we’ll air the event live during Fashion Week from Barclays Center. It will be a spectacular affair, featuring some of the world’s most talented musicians as well as today’s hottest fashions."
Seacrest's gig marks his first on-air deal with CBS, and it means that he now has partnerships at each of the Big Four broadcast networks. (He hosts "New Year's Rockin' Eve" at ABC, recently signed on to continue with "American Idol" on Fox and has inked a one-year deal with NBCUniversal that includes manning the major awards show carpets in 2015, along with other duties.)
Additional performers will be announced shortly. Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 1, at 10 a.m. ET via Ticketmaster or by calling 800-745-3000. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public on July 28-31.
"Fashion Rocks" airs live on CBS on Sept. 9.
