Digital radio broadcaster Sirius Canada has announced a deal with Live Nation to become the concert giant's official Canadian satellite radio partner.

The partnership gives Sirius customers access to live broadcasts featuring Canadian artists and tickets for Live Nation events. Sirius will also offer access to some Live Nation events through its Web site from a reserved block of tickets.

The Sirius Satellite Radio Canadian Concert series will be offered on Iceberg 85, the broadcaster's rock channel. The first concert will feature the band Lights.

Live Nation Canada president Bret Gallagher said he looks forward to offering more exclusive content as the deal progresses.
