Coldplay, Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons Tapped for iHeartRadio’s ALTer EGO

iHeartMedia's ALTer EGO is bringing the biggest names in alternative rock music back to Los Angeles in early January.

iHeartMedia’s ALTer EGO is bringing the biggest names in alternative rock music back to Los Angeles. On Jan. 15, Coldplay, Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons and more will perform at The Forum with a nationwide livestream.

The lineup for the fifth annual iHeartRadio ALTer EGO Presented by Capital One will also include Kings of Leon, Willow, All Time Low and more. The winter event will be hosted by Woody of iHeartRadio ALT 98.7’s nationally-syndicated The Woody Show.

“I’m psyched!” Woody said in a release. “When the line-up is this good, with so much talent on the stage, it takes the pressure off the host. No one will notice and/or remember and/or care if I did a good job or not!”


LiveOne will exclusively stream all performances on Over 75 alternative and rock iHeartRadio stations will also broadcast the event live in their local markets.

This week, iHeartRadio is also giving away trips to Los Angeles to attend the concert before tickets go on sale. The promotion will run across more than 80 alternative, rock and classic rock stations.

“We’re beyond excited to be back live at the iconic Forum for our Fifth Annual iHeartRadio ALTer Ego!” said program director for ALT 98.7 and vp of rock and alternative for iHeartMedia Lisa Worden in a release. “Seeing all of these artists together on one stage?!! We’re beyond grateful to have such an incredible lineup for the fans and what a way to kick off 2022.”
