Disney Channel in Concert was a reality series of recording artists performing in concert along with personal lives from all genres of music, from rap, country and pop to classical and blues. They often promoted the artist's sales and popularity through engaging a teen audience. The promotional content for these concerts were hosted in a program called Behind the Ears hosted by RuDee Sade Lipscomb. The series ran from early 1997 to late 2001.

Background[edit]

Each show features a specially taped live concert; documentary footage showing the artist pursuing personal and professional passions; and interviews with mentors, friends and family. The concert specials typically lasted an hour, and they aired on Fridays, with reruns being shown after it aired on the network frequently.

Cancellation[edit]

Disney Channel took In Concert off the air in late 2001, as well as with music videos, citing the inability to receive a stake in revenue from the artists' CD sales and lack of exclusivity for the videos. However, they do air music videos from songs featured in Disney's feature films and performed by artists on Radio Disney and signed by Disney's in-house record companies Hollywood Records and Walt Disney Records.
