LOS ANGELES — Taylor Swift, Aerosmith, Rihanna, Usher, Bon Jovi, Lil Wayne, Green Day, Miranda Lambert, Mary J. Blige, Shakira and others are set to take the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2012 this fall in Las Vegas.
The stellar lineup suggests the two-day marketing blitz to promote Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio digital music service is on its way to repeating the success of last year’s debut concert.
Clear Channel, which also owns 850 terrestrial radio stations in the U.S., says Brad Paisley, Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias, No Doubt, Linkin Park, Jason Aldean, P!nk and Calvin Harris are also among the performers set for the festival on Sept. 21 and 22 at the MGM Grand.
The company plans to make the concert an annual event. Tickets for the 2012 festival go on sale July 14.
