Coldplay, Billie Eilish, blink-182 and more play 2020 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO!
The 2020 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO Presented by Capital One, which featured the biggest names in Alternative Rock, concluded Saturday evening with unforgettable performances from Coldplay, Billie Eilish, blink-182 and more, at the historic, “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles, California.
Now in its third year, the event with an extraordinary lineup was broadcasted live across over 70 Alternative and Rock iHeartRadio stations and livestreamed on LiveXLive.
Billie Eilish kicked off the 2020 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO Presented by Capital One with an epic 40-minute set. The teen icon, who rocked the stage in black sunglasses and a Lil B shirt for her performance, opened the show with tracks Bad Guy and My Strange Addiction, before encouraging the sold-out crowd to jump during her electric performance of You Should See Me in a Crown.
blink-182 brought nostalgia to iHeartRadio ALTer Ego. Travis Barker, Matt Skiba and Mark Hoppus delivered an 11-track set featuring throwback hits including All the Small Things, as well as new songs off their ninth studio album, Nine. Following a performance of their throwback What’s My Age Again?, Skiba said, “I like to think we are the first band to have a song on the radio that has the word ‘sodomy’ in it.” They concluded their epic performance by sprinkling in some of TLC’s No Scrubs with 1997’s Dammit.
Coldplay returned to the stage amid the release of their eighth studio album, Everyday Life. The Grammy-winning band, who are celebrating their 25th anniversary, performed a perfectly curated mix of tracks during their 35-minute-long set, including new releases Orphans and Cry Cry Cry, as well as fan favorites including Fix You and Viva La Vida. Before performing their new release Daddy with a gospel choir live for the first time, Chris Martin told the sold-out crowd, “This is the most people we’re going to play for [to promote this album].”
