KDWB (101.3 FM) announced the full lineup of its annual Jingle Ball Dec. 4 at Xcel Energy Center, and it played out pretty much as Chris Riemenschneider predicted in an Artcetera post Monday. He batted 5-for-6, in fact.
The big curiosity will be South Korean one-hit wonder Psy, whose YouTube-powered dance novelty "Gangnam Style" has been No. 2 on the Billboard charts for four straight weeks.
Other acts include Minnesota's own Owl City, pop-rockers Train and OneRepublic, and a flock of British singers: Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran, Conor Maynard and Cher Lloyd.
Tickets -- priced at $25-$101.30 plus fees -- went on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Xcel box office and via Ticketmaster.
