...Well the NYC craziness continues! Today Rivers went down to Billboard Magazine to do a photo shoot with Jermaine Dupri, for the cover of Billboard, which will be out 11/13. Victory! Then the whole gang reconviened at the PC Richard and Son theatre on Avenue Of The Americas near Canal St., for the Stripped / iheartradio secret show, which went down exclusively to a small audience of contest winners. After some interiviews and photoshoots with iheartradio, I had the pleasure of introducing the guys onstage. Todays set started acousticly like yesterday, with classical accompniment on a special cover of Coldplay's "Vida La Vida". Then the classical players were thanked and in came the rest of the band for the electrical portion of the short but very energetic and fun set.
Note you can check out the show starting Thursday 10/29 on the I Heart Radio iPhone/Blackberry app. More will be added in a week or two. Also you can check out more photos and videos from the show on iheartradio.com.
