Sirius XM to host Paul McCartney concert
And it’s a good day to be a fan of the Fab Four. On the day that the Beatles catalog finally went on sale at iTunes, Sirius XM satellite radio is showing subscribers the love as well. In a celebration to mark Sirius XM reaching 20 million subscribers, the satellite provider announced that Paul McCartney will be giving an exclusive invitation-only concert at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater on December 13 at 8:00 PM ET. The concert will air live on 6 Sirius XM channels, including a month long Band On The Run channel that Sirius is launching November 29 with 24/7 music from the McCartney songbook. Sirius XM will also run promotions so that subscribers can win tickets to attend the Apollo concert in person. To qualify for the promotion, you’ll have to been an active subscriber of either Sirius or XM on or before November 15.
