The annual multi-artist holiday season ″Jingle Ball″ concert was created by Top 40 radio station WHTZ in 1995. The concert is presented each year at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The annual December concerts replaced WHTZ’s annual ″birthday celebration″ summer concerts (1984-1993). The ″Jingle Ball″ concept and branding evolved from WHTZ's December 1994 ″Acoustic Christmas″ concert.

The inaugural ″Jingle Ball″ concert was held on December 15, 1995[1]. The lineup included:

Jingle Ball is an annual concert taking place in early-to-mid December produced by the Los Angeles radio station KIIS-FM[2] Since 2000, the concert series has been staged at various venues around southern California including the Shrine Auditorium and Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the Honda Center in Anaheim.

Other Jingle Balls are hosted by iHeartMedia sister stations in other cities, such as WHYI in Miami, WXKS in Boston, and WIOQ in Philadelphia as part of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour series since 2011.

The concert series is noted for featuring several marquee performers in a day-long series of sets. Often, noted celebrities are on hand to introduce each act. The New York concert has been broadcast nationally for several years by The CW as part of their overall deal with iHeartMedia to carry concert event programming.
