Some of the acts including Annika Weaver covering the music of Cher and Lori Mitchell Gay covering the music of Tina Turner, who both competed in “Clash of the Cover Bands,” can be seen lighting up the Legends in Concert stage at Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut this holiday season.

“We are thrilled E! has chosen to shine its bright spotlight on these deserving musical tribute artists’ talents via its terrific high quality compelling and aspirational new series ‘Clash of the Cover Bands,’” said Brian Brigner, Chief Operating Officer of Legends in Concert. “We’re utilizing the muscle of our theatrical venues and promotional resources to encourage millions of Legends in Concert fans to tune in and experience ‘Clash of the Cover Bands.’  We are delighted in turn that E! will encourage its audience to experience many of the series’ competitors at our several Legends locations throughout the U.S.”

 

E! recently debuted its new music competition series where Stephen “tWitch” Boss serves as host and celebrity judges include global powerhouse Meghan Trainor, Grammy-nominated powerhouse singer-songwriter Adam Lambert and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ester Dean.  In each episode, two bands of similar musical genre (e.g., Pop Divas, ’80s icons, kings of country, platinum icons, rock legends, etc.) go head-to-head over the course of two rounds to see which band has the most entertaining cover performance, with a chance to win a cash prize of $10,000 and bragging rights. At the end of the season, one winner will be crowned with a chance to take home a big cash prize of $25,000 and set to appear in studio for a musical performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”  Artists covered this season include Aretha Franklin, Blink 182, Bon Jovi, Britney Spears, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, Cher, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Dolly Parton, Elton John, Foo Fighters, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Lady Gaga, Ozzy Osbourne, Poison, Tim McGraw, Tina Turner and U2.
