Lenny Kravitz and Sting are headlining "AT&T Playoff Playlist Live!," two nights of concerts at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Kravitz will headline on Saturday, Jan. 10, while Sting will play Sunday, Jan. 11.
And ESPN Music will be streaming both shows live, featuring two multi-platinum artists stars worthy of the first-ever College Football Playoff championship game.
With hits such as "Fly Away," "Are You Gonna Go My Way" and "It Ain't Over 'Till It's Over," Kravitz has transcended music labels with a blend of rock, funk and soul influences. The winner of four Grammy awards for best male rock performance, Kravitz is currently touring behind his tenth studio album, "Strut," which was ranked No. 35 on Rolling Stone’s top 50 albums of 2014.
Sting is a major figure in rock history, as a songwriter, a musician and a singer, selling nearly 100 million records as part of The Police and as a solo artist. A 16-time Grammy winner, Sting is currently appearing in the Broadway musical "The Last Ship," for which he wrote the music and lyrics.
Keri Hilson and Vintage Trouble are sharing the bill with Kravitz on Saturday, while Echosmith will open for Sting on Sunday.
Hilson's debut album "In A Perfect World ...", powered by the singles "Knock You Down" and "Turnin Me On," peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart in 2009. The singer-songwriter, who previously worked on songwriting and production teams for artists including Mary J. Blige, Ciara, The Pussycat Dolls and Britney Spears, followed up her debut album with "No Boys Allowed" in 2010.
With a soul-flavored rock sound reminiscent of the Stax-Volt singles of the 1960s, Vintage Trouble has opened for The Rolling Stones, The Who and Bon Jovi and made numerous TV appearances. The band, whose debut album "The Bomb Shelter Sessions" dropped in 2012, played to an estimated crowd of 100,000 as headliners of the Montreal International Jazz Festival last year.
Echosmith's 2014 debut album "Talking Dreams" produced the hit single "Cool Kids," which propelled them into the spotlight. The alt-pop band from Los Angeles has made numerous television appearances and received critical acclaim, with Esquire calling them "a group you’re going to be hearing about for a long time."
