Howard Stern brought together an insane mish-mash of celebrities, comedians and musicians – everyone from Rob Zombie to Barbara Walters – for his 60th Birthday Bash. And now the media legend is sharing the dizzying results in a new uncensored video, which will stream for free on his own website and SiriusXM from June 23rd at 6 a.m. EST through July.
Stern announced the details on his radio show, later posting the audio on his Soundcloud. "I can’t stop watching this video, and can’t wait to share it with my fans," he says. "So much happened that night; the skill and artistry of performances; the stories that came out of the audience; even a rare glimpse of me having a good time; this video gives you the best view of it all."
The "Birthday Bash," hosted by Stern's old pal Jimmy Kimmel, was held January 31st, 2014 at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and originally broadcast on Stern's two SiriusXM channels, Howard 100 and Howard 101. The event featured performances and appearances from a wide range of high-profile guests – including musical acts like the Black Keys, John Mayer, Adam Levine, John Fogerty and Dave Grohl alongside comedians Louis C.K., Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Silverman and David Letterman (the latter sitting down for a rare interview, which lasted 25 minutes).
The video was directed by Emmy-winning TV producer-director Joel Gallen; in addition to the online streams, it will also be viewable on smartphones and tablets.
