It’s October, which means IHeartRadio has released the 2024 lineup for January’s always-anticipated ALTer Ego concert. Every year they bring together an all-star lineup of the biggest bands in the world with some up-and-coming artists to watch for. Next year’s ALTer Ego will take place January 13th at the Honda Center in Anaheim.
This year’s headliner is Paramore, who just wrapped up a nationwide tour a few months ago. The band played sold shows night after night for 26 cities, including a stop here in Los Angeles at the Kia Forum. The tour was in support of Paramore’s album, “This is Why,” which was released in February ‘23 after a six-year hiatus from new music.
The 1975 may currently have the busiest tour schedule. They are on the At Their Very Best Tour in support of “Being Funny in a Foreign Language.”
The tour has been going almost nonstop since June and will continue until early December. But, before resuming back in February, they will make a brief stop in Los Angeles at ALTer Ego.
The Black Keys helped kick off the year in February when they set the Redondo Beach on fire with their electrifying set at BeachLife.
They are currently on their Dropout Boogie tour, and recently drummer Patrick Carney said the Black Keys are preparing an “epic” new album to be released in 2024, so fans are hoping for a sneak preview on some new tracks.
One of the most anticipated sets at this weekend’s When We Were Young Fest will be from Thirty Seconds to Mars. Always an energetic live show, fans were excited to see them added to this year’s ALTer Ego.
After a two-year layoff, the band has been busy playing the festival circuit this year, including sets at Lollapalooza and the IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
Sum 41’s appearance at ALTer Ego is met with bittersweet excitement. The pop punk band announced on social media earlier this year that they would be disbanding.
Their plan is to release the long-awaited double album “Heaven :x: Hell” next year with a worldwide farewell tour to support. Fans will be rushing to catch their set in January as it may be one of the last times we get to see them.
Even before the pandemic, Bush had been hard at work churning out new music and touring relentlessly. Front-man Gavin Rossdale said that with 2020’s “The Kingdom,” he felt that the band was entering a next chapter of their career.
They are currently touring in support of their latest effort, “The Art of Survival.” But the classics, wow!
Yellowcard is another band gearing up for When We Were Young in Las Vegas. After disbanding for the second time in 2017, fans were stoked when the band released “Childhood Eyes” in May, their first new music in seven years.
ALTer Ego will also feature lovelytheband, as well as British indie rock band, The Last Dinner Party.
The event is presented by Capital One, and Capital One cardholders have a presale that begins October 24th at 10 a.m. PT and ends October 26th 10 a.m. PT (or while supplies last). General on-sale begins October 27th at noon PT.
