I Want My Fuse TV!

I Want My Fuse TV!

I still love The Real World and Teen Mom and several other MTV offerings, but let’s be honest: If it’s music on television you’re looking for, MTV hasn’t been that place for a long time.

Fortunately, Fuse has stepped in to fulfill that role, as tonight’s latest live concert offering illustrates. Fuse Presents: Maroon 5 Live From the Beacon Theater (9PM ET) features the Adam Levine-led Los Angeles band performing their greatest hits, as well as selections from their upcoming Hands All Over CD (which hits stores on Sept. 21), from, IMHO, one of the best concert venues in the country. No crowds to fight, no pricey tickets to buy, no obnoxious drunk people in the seats in front of you standing up and woohoo-ing the whole time in an effort to get the lead singer to notice them (my experience at a John Mayer concert a couple of summers ago) … just a great live show, to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own living room.

Unfortunately, music fans on the Dish Network know that Fuse has been MIA from their channel lineup since July 1, which a quick trip to www.iwantfusetv.com could help rectify.

Meanwhile, among the highlights from Fuse’s other summer offerings:

Kings of Leon: Live From Bonnaroo 2010
(Premieres August 26th, 7PM ET)
Unlike last weekend’s unfortunate incident with the pigeon poop, KoL actually got to play at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee, and this Fuse event features an hour of the band playing their greatest tunes from the June 2010 show.

This year’s Chicago event features Lady Gaga, Green Day and Soundgarden, and this Fuse special will replay the highlights of the concert, along with interviews and behind-the-scenes scoop on the why Lollapalooza continues to be such a huge annual event.
