ALLIANCE FOR LIFETIME INCOME PARTNERS WITH IHEARTRADIO FOR THE STONES NO FILTER RADIO TOUR
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 11, 2020 — The Alliance for Lifetime Income is excited to bring an exclusive Rolling Stones music experience to fans across the United States by creating and presenting the “iHeartRadio Stones No Filter Radio Tour.” As the sole sponsor of the 2020 Rolling Stones “No Filter” tour, which was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Alliance has created an alternate yet innovative way for millions of fans across the U.S. to experience the Stones.
The six-city on-air tour on iHeartRadio’s Rock and Classic Rock stations will showcase an hour-long special of Rolling Stones music hits, interviews with the band, live recordings from past concerts, and an exclusive interview with the Rolling Stones tour production director, Dale “Opie” Skjerseth, who will be sharing accounts of his life on the road with the Stones and his experience building larger-than-life stage sets for Stones concerts over the decades.
The events will be broadcast on local stations in Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and St. Louis, as well livestreamed on www.iheart.com and the iHeartRadio app. Rolling Stones fans around the country will be able to listen and experience the radio series live each week on Friday nights from 9:00-10:00PM local time for six consecutive weeks starting June 26. All six cities were part of the original 2020 “No Filter” U.S. tour, which had been planned for May 8–July 9.
The stations hosting the radio concerts are as follows:
- June 26 – St. Louis – KLOU 103.3
- July 3 – Detroit – WLLZ 106.7
- July 10 – Minneapolis – KQQL 107.9 (KOOL 108)
- July 17 – Charlotte – WRFX 99.7
- July 24 – Dallas – KZPS 92.5
- July 31 – Pittsburgh – WDVE 102.5
As part of this radio tour and to help support COVID-19 pandemic relief efforts, iHeartRadio is committing financial support on behalf of the Alliance to Feeding America member food banks in each of the six cities.
The Alliance is a non-profit consumer education organization whose mission is to raise awareness and educate Americans about the need for protected lifetime income to cover basic expenses in retirement. This was the second consecutive year that the Alliance was the sole sponsor of the Rolling Stones U.S. tour. In 2019, the Alliance had the opportunity to reach 1.5 million concertgoers and 24 million social media followers with its education efforts.
The Alliance’s message is even more pressing today, with more than 80 million U.S. households unprotected and facing the prospect of running out of money in retirement. Based on new research released by the Alliance in May, three out of four respondents are concerned about the pandemic’s impact on retirement investments.
“The Stones have been such an essential part of their fans’ lives and happiness for decades, and though nothing can replace the band live in concert, we think this radio tour can provide a touch of Stones happiness that we all need right now,” said Jean Statler, CEO of the Alliance. “You’ll hear their best music, listen to exclusive interviews with Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie, and hear from Opie, their production director, whose unique but relatable experiences will resonate with many Americans during this difficult time. The Alliance is all about how to cover your basic expenses with protected lifetime income so you can live the life you want in retirement, uninterrupted by market ups and downs. We connected with tens of thousands of Stones fans last year on tour and hope to do the same with this iHeartRadio partnership.”
