iHeartRadio Fest To Air on VH1 Thanksgiving Weekend
Expect a Turkey Day with second helpings of Gaga this year.
Not only will the singer's "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" air on ABC Nov. 24 (9:30 pm ET), her headlining performance at iHeartRadio Fest will make the small screen during a new VH1 special for the first-year Vegas music fest.
The two-day iHeartRadio Music Festival, put on by Clear Channel Radio in September in Las Vegas, will come to TV in the form of a two and a half hour special debuting Thanksgiving weekend on VH1. The special will premiere on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 10 p.m. ET and run again on Nov. 24 at 3 a.m. ET and 10 a.m. ET.
In addition to Gaga's performance, the show will include sets from Coldplay, Kenny Chesney, The Black Eyed Peas, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, David Guetta, Jane's Addiction, Nicki Minaj, and a one-of-a-kind collaboration from Sting and Jeff Beck.
"The concert event was an amazing production, with an incredible talent line-up that our viewers know and care about passionately. It's going to be a great holiday event for the fans," says Ben Zurier, Executive Vice President, Program Strategy, VH1, VH1 Classic & Palladia.
The concert will also air several times on VH1's sister network, Palladia, in early December.
