          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.

 
 
              The following week, country music superstar Brad Paisley returns to his roots in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains for a special outdoor concert at West Virginia University.  As the hit-maker behind 23 number one singles and the winner of just about every Country music award imaginable, Brad brings his unique skills as a singer songwriter, guitarist and entertainer back to his home state as well as to "viewers like you" everywhere.
