Sirius XM Radio announced today that it will broadcast Paul McCartney live at the famous Apollo Theater in New York City on December 13th.
The broadcaster says the concert, which will air exclusively on satellite radio, will also celebrate Sirius XM reaching 20 million subscribers, a milestone the company expects to achieve later this month.
The concert, which will be held on Monday, December 13 at 8:00 pm ET, will feature McCartney performing songs by the Beatles as well as songs from Wings and his solo projects.
In addition to the concert, Sirius announced "Paul McCartney's Band on the Run Radio," a month-long limited run station devoted to McCartney's expansive music catalog, including songs from his solo records, tracks from every Wings album as well as the iconic songs he recorded with The Beatles.
The channel's launch coincides with the recent re-issue of Paul McCartney & Wings' number one album from 1973, Band on the Run, the first title to be released as part of an extensive overhaul of McCartney's complete catalog of solo recordings. The month-long channel will also feature a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this landmark album, hosted by McCartney himself, as well as newly discovered live performances of Wings tracks recorded at Abbey Road Studios from The Paul McCartney Archive.
Replacing the Bridge on Sirius channel 33 and XM channel 27, the station will launch on Monday, November 29 at 3:00 pm ET and air through Sunday, December 26 at 11:59 pm ET.
