Kendall’s Stageit appearance will include live performances of songs from his forthcoming album with band Heffron Drive, as well as a question and answer session.
“I’m always looking for new ways to connect with my fans,” said Schmidt, “With Stageit’s unique platform, I can engage with them in a more intimate way, performing from my own home studio where much of the music was created. I’m really looking forward to the show – it promises to be a great experience!”
The show will be broadcast live from Kendall’s home studio in Hollywood, Calif. During the show, fans will be able to win prizes for their support, including a phone call from Kendall, a meet and greet pass to an upcoming show and a signed guitar.
“When you have a global sensation like Kendall, it’s truly amazing to watch fans around the world gather together in one place at the same time for a very exclusive experience,” said Evan Lowenstein, CEO of Stageit. “We are looking forward to his show with us and know it will be a success.”

‘Sam & Cat’ has officially been canceled ( ) and Ari wasted no time reaching out to her fans about how she felt about the situation. She wrote a very heartfelt “TwitLonger” thanking Nickelodeon for “making a childhood dream of mine come true, for being a family to me, for being so accommodating and supportive of my multitasking with my music career, and for of course introducing me to many of my fans however many years ago.”
Ari even goes on to tell you how all the ‘Sam & Cat’ characters would have ended up, had it been up to her:
“If I had any say in the story from here on out I’d make sure they [Cat & Robbie] were happily married with sweet, eccentric, Jewish, artificially red headed babies. Cat would constantly find herself reminding Aunt Sam to leave the butter sock and other dangerous weapons out of the house. They’d live down the street from Jade and Beck, also happily married with purple and black haired, pale, grungy, beautiful, goth babies. ” AW!
She also opened up about what made Cat Valentine so special and why she’ll always be so dear to her heart. “Her appreciation for life and everybody she encounters. Her passion and genuine excitement for the little things that most people dread like school projects and work. She always saw negative obstacles as opportunities to make things good.”
