NEW YORK, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that it will kick off a new, exclusive series "Alt Nation Ping Pong Throwdown" on Tuesday, April 16 with Grammy® Award-winning rock band Muse.
SiriusXM's Alt Nation team and Muse, both ping pong fans, invite listeners to enter for the chance to play ping pong with Muse in the SiriusXM studios.
The "Alt Nation Ping Pong Throwdown" will air live on Alt Nation, channel 36, on Tuesday, April 16 at 1:00 pm ET. During the live ping pong match, SiriusXM listeners will hear music hand-selected by Muse: songs by some of the band's favorite artists as well as music from their six studio albums, including their recent album The 2nd Law, which features the hit singles "Madness" and "Panic Station."
"We know the guys are avid fans of ping pong, and we know Alt Nation listeners are massive fans of Muse, this makes perfect sense!," said Jeff Regan, Director, Music Programming, SiriusXM. "We are excited to offer Alt Nation listeners the opportunity to meet and possibly dominate (at ping pong) one of the biggest bands on Earth."
