MTV to Film Concerts in Breckenridge

MHD, the new HDTV music television network launching on January 16, today announced an original series of live concert specials shooting January 11 and 12 in Breckenridge, Colorado. Entitled “Music With Altitude,” the concert specials featuring Dashboard Confessional, country superstar Gary Allan, Goo Goo Dolls and up-and-coming recording artist and reality television star Cheyenne Kimball will be shot during Ullr Fest, an annual week-long Winter festival in Breckenridge.

The concerts will be staged at the Riverwalk Center and tickets are free to the public. A limit of four tickets per person will be available beginning Friday, January 6th at the Breckenridge Activity Center at 137 S. Main Street beginning at 9:00AM or by calling 877-864-0868. Tickets can also be obtained through Breckenridge’s and MHD’s local and Denver-area promotional partners.

The “Music With Altitude” concerts will be directed by Alex Coletti and produced by Jen Jones. Coletti, producer of the Grammy-nominated “Unplugged: Alicia Keys,” has been at the helm of several MTV music franchises and recently entered into an expanded development deal with MTV Networks Music Group. Jeff Jacobs and Morgan Hertzan will serve as Executive Producers and Peter Baron is Executive in Charge.

“With the party atmosphere of Ullr Fest buzzing around Breckenridge and the snow-capped Rocky Mountains providing a spectacular background, these concerts truly embrace what MHD is all about – combining great music, great visuals and high def in a way that only MTV Networks can do,” said Peter Baron, Executive in Charge of “Music With Altitude” and Vice President, Label Relations, MTV/MTV2. “The mix of artists on stage gives Ullr Fest visitors and MHD viewers a great blend of country, rock and pop, truly reflecting the MTV, VH1 and CMT heritage of our exciting new HDTV channel.”
