The Foos will kick off proceedings with a performance in their L.A. studio on 9/1 for an extended Live Lounge Special. Fellow U.S. acts Pink, Miley and Jay-Z will also take part in extended sessions on the following Fridays.

The month will culminate in an evening concert that will be broadcast live on Radio 1, featuring a yet to be announced special guest. Could it be Ed Sheeran?
