As we told you Monday, SIRIUS has some events for New Years Eve, and Day. SIRIUS put out a Press release today.
- Saturday, December 31 at 9:30 pm ET, SIRIUS will broadcast a rare intimate concert with Jimmy Buffett on Radio Margaritaville channel 31. This very special show was recorded last week at Belly Up in Aspen, Colorado. Jimmy took the stage as his alter ego, Freddy and the Fishsticks, the moniker Buffett uses for his special under-the-radar performances and recordings. SIRIUS will air this exclusive performance -- a perfect soundtrack to listener's end-of-the-year parties.
- For the second year in a row, SIRIUS will broadcast Patti Smith, punk rock's poet laureate, live on New Year's Eve from NYC's Bowery Ballroom. Patti Smith and Her Band will begin their live concert at 10pm ET on SIRIUS Disorder channel 24, New Year's Eve (Saturday, December 31).
- Blues-rock artist G. Love & Special Sauce will also provide their own lively soundtrack for your New Year's celebration when SIRIUS broadcasts a live performance starting at 10:30 pm Mountain Time, January 1, on The Spectrum channel 18. G. Love and his band, Special Sauce, will take the stage at The Belly Up in the upscale party mecca of Aspen, Colorado.
- SIRIUS will also broadcast a stellar performance from Sheryl Crow, recorded at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City. This show features live songs from Sheryl's Grammy nominated album "Wildflower", and will air on The Pulse channel 9 beginning at 10pm ET on Saturday, December 31.
The best Vegas New Year's Party ever was Elvis -- live, in concert. To celebrate the ringing in of 2006, SIRIUS' Elvis Radio channel 13 will present non-stop Elvis Live In Concert tracks and performances starting New Year's Eve at 7 pm ET.
- Original MTV Veejays and SIRIUS hosts Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn will also ring in the New Year on The Big 80s channel 8 with a special countdown to midnight in each time zone, a feat they first made famous on MTV.
