Eight episodes in all are planned for the first season of Landmarks Live In Concert. Chad Smith, the drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, serves as host for the series and conducts one-on-one interviews with the artists exploring their favorite locations around each Landmark. The show is being shot in locations around the world, including London, Paris, New York, Havana, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Jamaica, West Virginia and many more with major artists performing shows for their fans in front of landmarks to which they have a connection.
The series premieres with a native New Yorker from Hell's Kitchen, Grammy Award-winning artist, Alicia Keys. Her collaboration with Jay Z, "Empire State of Mind," instantly became the City's newest anthem. In this debut Landmarks Live special recorded over a one-year period, Alicia's love affair with New York continues as she performs in notable locations all around town including the City's world famous Circle Line harbor tour, the Unisphere in Queens, and Harlem's Apollo Theater.
