VH1 Classic and World Productions are
proud to present DECADES ROCK LIVE, an innovative new live concert series set
to premiere on VH1 Classic in September 2005. DECADES ROCK LIVE will feature
performances by celebrated artists from rock and soul who have influenced
popular music over the last 50 years, as well as performances from some of
today's hottest recording acts who have been inspired by these legends. Each
one-hour episode will focus on a specific artist. Artists scheduled to
participate in the series include some of the most renowned names from the
world of music. The first show taped will star "The Doors of the 21st
Century," featuring Robby Krieger, Ian Astbury, and Ray Manzarek. Special

Arena for the duration of the series run), in Atlantic City, NJ beginning
August 5. The music performances will be augmented with special features, such
as "Decades Confidential," exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with
artists, focusing on their career milestones and highlighting their newest
releases, concert performances and other endeavors. DECADES ROCK LIVE segments
will also include "Fan Factoids" from viewers sharing their knowledge of music
facts and figures, incorporated as pop-up quotes and trivia in every episode.
Additionally, DECADES ROCK LIVE will feature several special themed shows that
will include recording acts from the past five decades celebrating a specific
musical genre or period.

Fans will also have the chance to get their hands on exclusive memorabilia
and special items from the artists scheduled to participate in the series.
Both the Guitar Center Music Foundation and the GRAMMY Foundation will work
with the show to host silent auctions. The proceeds raised will support the
philanthropic missions of each of those organizations.
