Live Music Lives on VH1 on Fridays with New 'Friday Night Alright' Series of Concerts from the World's Leading Rock and Pop Music Artists Including U2, Madonna, Green Day and Black Eyed Peas

Multi-Platinum-Selling Pop Superstar Pink Launches a Calendar's Worth of First Class Performances From Around The Globe on Friday, January 1, 2010 at 11 PM*

NEW YORK, Nov. 23 -- Beginning New Year's Day 2010, VH1 births "Friday Night Alright," a music fan's passport to first-class rock and pop music concerts in HD from around the world every Friday night at 11 PM.

The weekly global musical expedition is scheduled to begin on Friday, January 1, 2010 at 11:00 PM*. On that night, Pink's high-flying "Funhouse" tour kicks off an itinerary packed with A-list performers set to roll out the first quarter of the new year including U2, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Green Day, Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, The Killers, Coldplay and Katy Perry. Jim Shearer, of VH1's "Top 20 Video Countdown," will present the series.

"VH1 has a long, successful history as home to great live music, from 'Storytellers' to 'VH1 Hip Hop Honors' to "VH1 Divas Live', which we were so happy to bring back this year," said Ben Zurier, Executive Vice President, Program Strategy for VH1, VH1 Classic, and Palladia. "'Friday Night Alright' will be the premiere destination for concerts on television -- a different show featuring an A-list artist every week, driven by the excitement of arm-waving, foot-stomping audiences. The series literally covers the globe to present the best artists, and the best-produced concerts."
