The 25th Annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas concert has just announced its line-up and it could very well be the best holiday event in the country. The concert takes place on December 13th and 14th of this year at the Forum in Los Angeles. Headliners include U2, Smashing Pumpkins, Imagine Dragons, System Of A Down and Linkin Park.
If this wasn’t enough the line-up is rounded out by some of the past and today’s most popular artists like Weezer, Alt-J, Modest Mouse, Interpol, Tears For Fears, Rise Against and much more. What is even more impressive are the additions of U2 and System Of A Down, who have not been too active on the live scene as of late. U2 just released a brand new album titled, Songs Of Innocence that they will most likely tour next year. AAC is a perfect warm up gig and chance to preview their new material in front of a large crowd. System Of A Down has not toured or released a new album in several years and their appearance at the event should fuel rumors of another tour and perhaps even a new album.
Fans should take note as many of these bands will most likely be touring in the coming months or in 2015. AAC is a great indicator on which bands will be featured at various festivals and concert events alike. Tickets for both nights go on sale Friday, November 14th at 12pm PT via Ticketmaster.com only. Do not miss out on one of the biggest events to close out 2014.
