THE REBIRTH OF COOL…Music on a Global Stage
Somewhere along the way music stopped being something presented on television (Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, Midnight Special and the seismic shift that was MTV), and actually became television itself (American Idol, The Voice and X Factor).
In many ways, the coolest of all the art forms…Music…has been reduced to little more than sound that supports a staged and contrived television experience. Now is the time for that to change!
Welcome to LANDMARKS LIVE - In Concert
LANDMARKS LIVE - In Concert is an artist driven concert series for television that is as much about landmarks, as it is the music and the musicians who perform in the series.
Created by veteran Producer/Director Dan Catullo and Hosted by Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and legendary MTV Host, Radio Personality and Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame Honoree…Matt Pinfield, LANDMARKS LIVE In Concert is the next generation of Music Television where music, live performance, legendary destinations from the US and around the globe, and music history, all come together presenting a unique and very special music experience for television.
This “Music Docu-Series” is designed to showcase popular music artists at iconic locations by staging one-night only live concert/performance and interview events in a setting that is completely unique.

Season 1 of LANDMARKS LIVE - In Concert is currently in production on episodes featuring will.i.am @ Royal Albert Hall (London) and Alicia Keys – “Where Dreams Are Made Of” (New York City) with additional episodes in pre-production and scheduled for shooting over the six months.

So, if music is the global language, then LANDMARKS LIVE - In Concert is the stage on which the language is spoken.
