Tickets For 2019 “iHeartRadio ALTer Ego” Sold Out Within First Day Available

The Highly Anticipated Event Sold Out Within Seconds of Being on Sale

NEW YORK – October 5, 2018 – iHeartMedia, the leading audio company in America which also has a greater reach in the U.S. than any other media outlet, announced today that the 2019 iHeartRadio ALTer Ego officially sold out on the first day on sale. Due to the tremendous demand, the second annual music event sold out in less than a minute of being on sale to the general public.

The biggest names in Alternative Rock will come together at the historic, “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles on January 19, 2019 to celebrate everything Alternative Rock. The event’s extraordinary lineup includes Twenty One Pilots, The Killers, Muse, Weezer, Rise Against, Bishop Briggs and The Revivalists.

“It was remarkable to watch how fast tickets for the 2019 iHeartRadio ALTer Ego sold out,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. “All tickets immediately went the moment we made them available. It speaks to the power of the lineup and how fast the ALTer Ego brand has grown in just two years.”

iHeartRadio ALTer Ego is part of iHeartMedia’s roster of incredibly successful, nationally recognized events, including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, iHeartRadio Music Awards, the nationwide iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T and the iHeartRadio Wango Tango by AT&T.

“iHeartRadio ALTer Ego selling out within seconds is further validation of the extraordinary interest of alternative music,” said Tim Castelli, President of National Sales, Marketing and Partnerships for iHeartMedia. “The lineup is incredible and reaches the Millennial trend leaders who make up the mega-event’s core audience. Given such an amazing response, we’re expecting this to break social chatter records like we’ve done with our lineup on our other iHeart marquee events.”

Beginning December 26, iHeartRadio will launch a nationwide promotion to give Alt-Rock fans across the country the opportunity to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend iHeartRadio ALTer Ego.
