Sick of holiday songs and Christmas standards like ‘Deck the Halls’ and ‘Silent Night?’ So are we. If you want to pipe some of your preferred music into your holiday gatherings, SiriusXM is making that easy for you. Beginning Christmas night (Dec. 25) at 9 PM EST, the satellite radio broadcaster will air Evanescence‘s ‘Artist Confidential’ performance on its Octane active rock channel.
After the Christmas debut, encore airings will run through Dec. 30, both on Octane and Pulse.
The performance was recorded earlier this month in SiriusXM’s New York studios. In case you are not familiar, the SiriusXM ‘Artist Confidential’ series features intimate conversations with fans mixed with live performance.
Evanescence will perform previously unheard acoustic renditions of ‘Bring Me to Life’ and ‘Lithium,’ along with other fan faves.
