The Toyota Concert Series on TODAY continues its tradition of showcasing the biggest, boldest names in music. This year’s line-up includes Justin Bieber and Chris Brown, two superstars who set record-breaking crowds in previous TODAY concerts. The 2012 series also features two show favorites, rock bands Maroon 5 and Train, as well as newcomers Hot Chelle Rae in their first morning show concert. Crowd-pleasers Pitbull and Flo Rida will join the line-up, and TODAY gets a little bit country with stars Kenny Chesney, The Band Perry and The Zac Brown Band.
This year the Toyota Concert Series in New York extends beyond the Plaza into digital space via Pandora.
