Pandora and AEG Live’s Concerts West Offer Pre-Sale Access to Rolling Stones’ ZIP CODE Tour
Exclusive Pandora Experience for Listeners: Rolling Stones Curated Mixtape and Interview Conducted by Legendary Music Journalist Anthony DeCurtis
OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 9, 2015-- Pandora (NYSE
), the leading internet radio service, is partnering with AEG Live’s Concerts West and the Rolling Stones to offer listeners an exclusive ticket pre-sale for the upcoming ZIP CODE tour. The presale begins on Thursday, April 9 at 10am in all US time zones, four full days before the general sale on April 13.
While fans wait for the tour to officially kick off, Pandora has partnered with the Rolling Stones to provide an exclusive listening experience – a digital mixtape which includes songs hand-picked by band members. The mixtape can be found at [www.pandora.co
] or by searching ZIP CODE Radio in the Pandora mobile/tablet app.
Additionally, famed rock journalist Anthony DeCurtis sat down with members of the band for an in-depth interview, which will be available on the ZIP CODE Radio station starting April 13. Listeners interested in a preview of the interview can check out DeCurtis’ account now on the Pandora blog.
The ZIP CODE tour marks the first time the Rolling Stones have played North American stadiums since their 2005-2007 "A Bigger Banger Tour." It also coincides with the re-release of the 1971 classic Sticky Fingers, featuring tracks such as ‘Wild Horses’ and ‘Brown Sugar.’
"The word ‘icon’ gets thrown around quite a bit, but is perfectly fitting when referencing the Rolling Stones," said Lars Murray, Pandora’s Senior Vice President Music Industry Group. "Being able to work with the Rolling Stones and provide new and exclusive experiences for their fans is the embodiment of our mission at Pandora – connecting music makers to the people who love their music."
This experience is the latest example of the ongoing efforts by Pandora to connect its artists and listeners, having released its Artist Marketing Platform (AMP) late last year and the recent rollout of Artist Audio Messaging.
