NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Beginning July 17 at 9 PM, VH1 will debut "VH1 And LiveNation.com Present Live & Loud Fridays," a weekly exclusive look at some of the biggest concert tours currently rocking across the nation including Def Leppard and Poison, The Fray, Nickelback and Creed.
In partnership with Live Nation, VH1 will present a rare, music lover's perspective on these shows, delivering full, live performances of three songs from the tour featured in each episode. Each half-hour installment will also provide behind-the-scenes coverage of all of the activity that goes into a high-end show, from when the roadies first arrive at the venue to when the band steps on stage.
The series will also include interviews with the featured band at the venue, conducted by VH1's host Michele Merkin (host of ABC's "The Next Best Thing" and NBC's "Star of Tomorrow.")
"VH1 And LiveNation.com Present Live & Loud Fridays" will also present info on-screen about the tour and how viewers can get tickets to upcoming dates on that specific tour as well as other Live Nation tours by going to http://LiveNation.com/vh1.
