January 17, 2011 at 9:28 AM (PT)
The ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC and DICK CLARK PRODUCTIONS has announced that MERCURY RECORDS/NASHVILLE duo SUGARLAND will headline the first-ever ACM FAN JAM, a fans-only live concert event taking place in LAS VEGAS during and after the 46th Annual ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, broadcast SUNDAY, APRIL 3rd at 8p (ET) on CBS-TV. The ACM is also announcing details for tickets-on-sale for all ACM events during ACM AWARDS week in LAS VEGAS.
The ACM FAN JAM will take place at the MANDALAY BAY RESORT & CASINO, during and after the ACM AWARDS from the MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA, and will give fans the opportunity to be part of the live telecast. Throughout the three-hour live show from the MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA, there will be performances from the MANDALAY BAY EVENTS CENTER by SUGARLAND and other music acts, to be announced at a later date.
“We sell out our Awards show tickets within minutes of going on sale, every year,” said BOB ROMEO, CEO of the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC. “With SUGARLAND’s help, the Academy is answering the demand of more and better access to the Awards show with the FAN JAM, with a family-friendly ticket price and a promise that this experience will be like no other in ACM AWARDS history.”
"I am wound up about the ACM FAN JAM,” said SUGARLAND’s JENNIFER NETTLES. “It's going to be like hosting our own ACM party for the fans. They'll get to see the show AND have their own private show in the same evening! It's like having your biscuit and eating it too, all in one big jar of FAN JAM!"
The ACM FAN JAM will include three live remotes into the 46th Annual ACM AWARDS telecast -- one for each hour of the show -- and will also include live performances by upcoming Country music acts, prizes and special giveaways only for attendees, such as autographed guitars, trip packages to Country music events and merchandise.
