Posted on by Chief Marketer Staff

Pontiac has struck a deal with ABCs late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live to present a series of televised outdoor concerts in Hollywood.

Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Pontiac Garage West begins today starring Billy Idol. Two of his songs will air live on the show and streamlined segments of the concerts can be viewed at the Jimmykimmellive.abc.com. More than 30 performances by established and up-and-coming artists will be held.

At the events, Pontiac will showcase its Solstice roadster, G6 coupe and Torrent compact SUV, which all launched in 2005, and on the Jimmy Kimmel Live

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The concerts are an extension of Pontiac’s Designed for Action ad campaign, which showcases up and coming bands through its Virgin Megastores partnership, Hopson said.

Unrelated to the Kimmel deal, the automaker kicked off Pontiac Garage East yesterday with an event in New York’s Times Square with a surprise performance by platinum-selling rock group Jet. The concert was part of a larger event, Pontiac’s Summer Solstice, which featured performances by up and coming bands at Virgin Megastores— Vacations, Kinky, and Citizen Cope— the placement of Pontiac Solstices two-seat sports coupes along Times Square.
