Foster the People to Perform Private Concert at New York City’s Bowery Electric for SiriusXM


Sirius XM Radio announced today that Foster the People will perform at New York City’s Bowery Electric for an exclusive, invitation-only concert for SiriusXM listeners.

The concert will be broadcast live on Friday, December 9 at 10:30 pm ET on Alt Nation, channel 36. Alt Nation was the earliest supporter of Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks,” which back in June of 2010, had its first airplay with the channel before the song was even released. Since then, the track has been certified double-platinum and Alt Nation has continued to support the band with additional airplay with their follow-up singles “Helena Beat” and “Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls).”

“SiriusXM’s Alt Nation played our music before any other radio outlet in the country—this show is a way for us to thank the SiriusXM team and do something special for our fans,” said Mark Foster of Foster the People.

“We love it when our listeners hear new artists on SiriusXM before anywhere else and we are committed to discovering and playing new music consistently as part of our programming,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “When our Alt Nation programming team heard Foster the People for the first time we knew we needed to share ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ with our listeners immediately.”

SiriusXM subscribers will have the chance to attend the private concert. Listen to Alt Nation or visit www.siriusxm.com for Official Rules and details.

Alt Nation plays the latest alternative rock music. Listeners will hear Kings Of Leon, Foo Fighters, Black Keys, Weezer, Muse, The Killers, Death Cab For Cutie, Silversun Pickups and Green Day.
