iConcerts News is a new programme, that will be broadcast on the iConcerts channel and will be available on-demand on the iConcerts App.

iConcerts News will premiere on iConcerts HD TV in 85 different countries with its premiere to be broadcast on Monday November, 25 at 08:00 CET.

The show will then be available for free in the same week for the 500,000 regular platform and application users of the iConcerts App (on the web, Smart TV, smartphones, tablets).

New editions of iConcerts News will be available on a weekly basis. Its “short news” format talks about current topics in the worldwide live music scene with exclusive interviews accompanied by live music footages. The show aims to highlight new talents in order to promote the emerging music scene and thus favor the rise of tomorrow’s legends, presentation of the concert venues and live news…

In the first episode, iConcerts meets Micky Green. The Australian singer, who is currently on tour in Europe, is enjoying a great success with the release of her third album, Daddy, I Don’t Want To Get Married. She reveals her on-stage experiences, her live events and her new album in an exclusive interview. The star also plays an acoustic take on her song In Between.

“Alongside Netflix, Hulu and other OTT platforms who are producing their own contents, iConcert News is produced by our internal teams. iConcerts News is only the beginning in a series of other “in-house” productions that will allow iConcerts to stand out and therefore offers the public one further reason to discover us, to live and experience our unique live music universe”, explains Mathieu Sibille, CEO of the company.

“Advanced discussions with co-producers are allowing us to consider new exclusive programs to be launched in early 2014.”
