IAC Consumer Applications and Portals, a wholly-owned business of IAC/InterActiveCorp, announced that Kelly Rowland, Scott Ian, Lil Mama, Hinder, Teddy Geiger, and Jordan McCoy will serve as celebrity hosts at “Stage-Z” â€“ a full-day concert to be held July 7th in its virtual world, Zwinktopia. Environmental reporters Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will also be participating. Stage-Z will raise awareness of the global warming epidemic and need for climate control reform.
“Global warming is an issue that we need to confront, and I am proud to do my part to help today’s teens understand the dire consequences of inaction on this issue,” said Kelly Rowland. “Hosting at Stage-Z in Zwinktopia is an innovative way for me to spread this message to the online community.”
In conjunction with The Alliance For Climate Protection, Stage Z will broadcast in Zwinktopia, a virtual world for the more than seven million Zwinky avatars worldwide. Stage-Z will feature a 24-hour block of music videos, interviews, comedy, short films, and exclusive programming from today’s top hip-hop, rock, pop, electronic, and metal artists as well as celebrity DJ’s, comedians and actors.
The event will coincide with Live Earth, a 24-hour, 7-continent series of 9 concerts taking place on July 7th that will bring together more than 100 music artists and 2 billion people to trigger a global movement to solve the climate crisis.
The Stage-Z Concert will be held in the new outdoor amphitheatre in Zwinktopia built especially for the event.
