From Elvis Presley and Muhammad Ali to Marilyn Monroe and Taylor Swift, the list of celebrities to grace the stage at Madison Square Garden is as long as it is star-studded.

On December 9th, just in time for the holidays, The World’s Most Famous Arena will add even more luminaries to its impressive guest book as it hosts the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball. This year’s show – described by Variety as an “annual fiesta of the year’s biggest hits” – will feature performances by:

Dua Lipa
Charlie Put
Back Street Boys
The child LAROI
Demi Lovato
Ava Max
Dove Cameron

Overall, this lineup has more than 110 million followers and attracts more than 280 million monthly active listeners on Spotify. Many of them are among the top 100 acts on the streaming giant’s massive platform. With such an AAA tent, it’s no surprise that claiming a seat for this soon-to-be-sold-out show costs more than $700 a ticket, even if your nose bleeds.

However, would-be attendees who can’t afford that asking price—let alone the 800-mile drive to midtown Manhattan—are in luck. The Tennessee Aquarium IMAX Theater will be one of a select few locations to host iHeart Jingle Ball: The IMAX Live Experience using newly installed IMAX streaming technology.

Featuring a state-of-the-art IMAX with laser audio/video system, Chattanooga’s largest screen is also Scenic City’s best spot for music fans to enjoy this collection of music’s biggest names. On the theater’s six-story screen, surrounded by 12 channels of thunderous, accurate audio, attendees will enjoy Jingle Ball on a scale that mimics the feeling of being on stage with their favorite artists.

The iHeart Radio Jingle Ball: The IMAX Experience begins streaming Friday, December 9 at 7 p.m. and has an estimated runtime of 180 to 210 minutes. Local visitors to the Jingle Ball can arrive up to one hour prior to the start of the New York event to take advantage of a cash bar in the theater lobby.

Tickets are available now for $20 per person. For more details and to purchase tickets, visit https://tnaqua.org/imax/iheartradios-jingle-ball/
