The Killers to Perform for Pandora LIVE

Sep 10, 2020
Virtual Concert Event Hosted by Madison from SiriusXM's AltNation

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pandora announced today that international chart-toppers and GRAMMY nominees The Killers will perform for Pandora LIVE on September 15th at 8:45pm ET.  This marks the second event since the popular concert series transitioned to virtual and kicked off with multi-platinum artist Kane Brown last month.  RSVP for the free event HERE.

The Killers are currently celebrating the recent release of their highly anticipated sixth studio album Imploding The Mirage.  The Pandora LIVE event will feature performances of old favorites as well as songs from the new album, including "Running Towards A Place" which will be the first time the track will be performed for an audience.  With their 2020 tour postponed, this Pandora LIVE event, from LMG Studios in Las Vegas, is one of the few chances to see the band perform this year.

The evening will be hosted by Madison, the host of SiriusXM's AltNation (ch. 36).  Select fans of The Killers on Pandora will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual meet and greet with the band prior to the performance.  Additionally, the band has recorded a Pandora Story to be available post-event as a podcast meets playlist with commentary about old and new tracks.

"Our people: We were hoping to share our stuff the old fashioned way, but like everyone else on planet Earth, we're having to adjust" said The Killers.  "We've gone virtual! Thanks to our pals at Pandora, we were able to do such a thing. Hope you like it!"

Event sponsors will complement and enhance the at-home viewing experience by bringing interactive fan activities and exclusive content together in a whole new way. For example, National University will let fans test their knowledge with pre-show trivia and learn more about the making of the album with behind-the-scenes artist commentary on the Pandora Live: Backstage with The Killers station. Wendy's will provide a limited amount of exclusive artist merchandise for attendees on a first-come, first-served code redemption basis, and Hidden Valley Ranch will offer fans a collection of recipes to enjoy at home. After the show, the Pandora Live: Backstage with The Killers station will be updated to include live performance tracks from the event!

Such forward-looking statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of our management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond our control. Actual results and the timing of events may differ materially from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements.

The following factors, among others, could cause actual results and the timing of events to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements:  the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is adversely impacting our business; our substantial competition that is likely to increase over time; our efforts to attract and retain subscribers and listeners, or convert listeners into subscribers, which may not be successful, and may adversely affect our business; our Pandora ad-supported business has suffered a loss of monthly active users, which may adversely affect our Pandora business; privacy and data security laws and regulations may hinder our ability to market our services, sell advertising and impose legal liabilities; we engage in extensive marketing efforts and the continued effectiveness of those efforts are an important part of our business; consumer protection laws and our failure to comply with them could damage our business; a substantial number of our Sirius XM subscribers periodically cancel their subscriptions and we cannot predict how successful we will be at retaining customers; our ability to profitably attract and retain subscribers to our Sirius XM service as our marketing efforts reach more price-sensitive consumers is uncertain; our failure to convince advertisers of the benefits of our Pandora ad-supported service could harm our business; if we are unable to maintain revenue growth from our advertising products, particularly in mobile advertising, our results of operations will be adversely affected; if we fail to accurately predict and play music, comedy or other content that our Pandora listeners enjoy, we may fail to retain existing and attract new listeners; if we fail to protect the security of personal information about our customers, we could be subject to costly government enforcement actions and private litigation and our reputation could suffer; interruption or failure of our information technology and communications systems could impair the delivery of our service and harm our business; we rely on third parties for the operation of our business, and the failure of third parties to perform could adversely affect our business; our business depends in part upon the auto industry; our Pandora business depends in part upon consumer electronics manufacturers; the market for music rights is changing and is subject to significant uncertainties; our ability to offer interactive features in our Pandora services depends upon maintaining licenses with copyright owners; the rates we must pay for "mechanical rights" to use musical works on our Pandora service have increased substantially and these new rates may adversely affect our business; failure of our satellites would significantly damage our business; our Sirius XM service may experience harmful interference from wireless operations; failure to comply with FCC requirements could damage our business; economic conditions, including advertising budgets and discretionary spending, may adversely affect our business and operating results; if we are unable to attract and retain qualified personnel, our business could be harmed; we may not realize the benefits of acquisitions or other strategic investments and initiatives, including the acquisition of Pandora; our use of pre-1972 sound recordings on our Pandora service could result in additional costs; we may from time to time modify our business plan, and these changes could adversely affect us and our financial condition; we have a significant amount of indebtedness, and our debt contains certain covenants that restrict our operations; our facilities could be damaged by natural catastrophes or terrorist activities; the unfavorable outcome of pending or future litigation could have an adverse impact on our operations and financial condition; failure to protect our intellectual property or actions by third parties to enforce their intellectual property rights could substantially harm our business and operating results; some of our services and technologies may use "open source" software, which may restrict how we use or distribute our services or require that we release the source code subject to those licenses; rapid technological and industry changes and new entrants could adversely impact our services; existing or future laws and regulations could harm our business; we may be exposed to liabilities that other entertainment service providers would not customarily be subject to; our business and prospects depend on the strength of our brands; we are a "controlled company" within the meaning of the NASDAQ listing rules and, as a result, qualify for, and rely on, exemptions from certain corporate governance requirements; while we currently pay a quarterly cash dividend to holders of our common stock, we may change our dividend policy at any time; and our principal stockholder has significant influence, including over actions requiring stockholder approval, and its interests may differ from the interests of other holders of our common stock. Additional factors that could cause our results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, which are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and available at the SEC's Internet site ( http://www.sec.gov ).
