The Pontiac Garage in Times Square has quickly become a favorite destination for artists to perform and promote upcoming albums and releases. In addition to the tremendous amount of exposure the surprise concerts in Times Square generate, Pontiac has successfully been able to leverage their relationship with the national late night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC to feature one or two songs to appear in the showâ€™s highly regarded musical segment from the Pontiac Garage.
â€śWeâ€™ve had a tremendous amount of interest and support from the music industry in our Pontiac Garage platform,â€ť said Dino Bernacchi, advertising manager, Pontiac. â€śWhether itâ€™s been Fall Out Boy playing on our Pontiac Garage in Hollywood as part of the Jimmy Kimmel Live partnership, or Hawthorne Heights playing on the Pontiac Garage at the Chicago Autoshow, or P.O.D. playing on the Times Square Garage for New Yearâ€™s eve, the Pontiac Garage has been a conduit to bring cool and progressive musical performances to our consumers in a unique and memorable way.â€ť
â€ś I am so excited about playing in Times Square the week of my album release-it's so amazing to reach that many people from the top of New York!â€ť said Milian. â€ś Having the performance air on Jimmy Kimmel Live from the Pontiac Garage is awesome -- I hope I get asked to play up here again.â€ť
