New York-based low-cost carrier JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) said it is hosting a live performance by the rap group Goodie Mob on Monday September 9 as part of the airline´s Live From T5 Concert series at New York´s John F Kennedy Airport.
The series features surprise concerts held post-security at Terminal 5 at JFK. Concerts are available exclusively to ticketed customers and contest winners.
Celebrating their reunion after a 14 year hiatus, Grammy-Award winning artist CeeLo Green will join original Goodie Mob group members Big Gipp, Khujo and T-Mo to perform selections from their new album “Age Against the Machine,” which drops on August 27.
The group will perform their first single off the new CD, “Special Education” which features Janelle Monae, as well as other songs. CeeLo will also perform some of his solo hits.
JetBlue and Goodie Mob have partnered with the group´s management team at Primary Wave Music to provide some Goodie fans with special access to this show and an opportunity to meet the group. Additionally, JetBlue will provide an opportunity to several members of its TrueBlue loyalty programme and their guests traveling through JFK on the day of the show.
Goodie Mob coined “Dirty South” hip hop. Formed in 1991, the group released their debut album “Soul Food” in 1995, which was certified gold in the US.
The group released two more albums, “Still Standing”, and “World Party”, which were both also certified gold. Now after 14 years, Goodie Mob is back with their new album “Age Against the Machine.”
Since 2009, JetBlue´s Live From T5 concert series has served as a launching pad for emerging artists and a platform for top pop acts, JetBlue said. The concert series is meant to enhance the travel experience with live entertainment for customers traveling through JetBlue´s Terminal 5.
