Pandora, the OG streaming service, is set to present subscribers with an exclusive concert series featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment. It’s called the Small Stage Series and features intimate performances from musicians such as H.E.R., J Balvin, Coldplay, Shaggy and others, as well as comedians like John Mulaney.

“The series is a showcase that represents SiriusXM’s amazing array of audio entertainment, spanning all musical styles and spotlight fan-favorite and top-tier talent performing in secret locations and limited-size iconic venues across the U.S.,” said Scott Greenstein, Chief Content Officer for SiriusXM, Pandora’s parent company. According to Greenstein, the Small Stage Series was created, “to acknowledge the grit and resilience of people across the country.”


The iconic Dave Matthews kicked off the Small Stage Series with an intimate, invite-only live acoustic show. The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter’s full concert aired live on SiriusXM’s Dave Matthews Band Radio station.


R&B sensation H.E.R., who recently released her Back of My Mind album, is slated to close out Pandora’s latest concert series with an intimate live show in November. Brandi Carlile, Glass Animals and Twenty One Pilots are expected to headline Small Stage Series shows as well.
