The two-hour special celebrating fashion and music will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest, and is executive produced by Richard Beckman of Three Lions Entertainment, Don Mischer of Don Mischer Productions, and Seacrest. It will air live on CBS from Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

"Fashion Rocks is the only show that celebrates the inextricable link between fashion and music, a relationship that is more relevant today than ever before," said Three Lions Entertainment CEO Richard Beckman in a statement. "For the first time, we'll air the event live during Fashion Week from Barclays Center. It will be a spectacular affair, featuring some of the world's most talented musicians as well as today's hottest fashions."

Seacrest's gig marks his first on-air deal with CBS, and it means that he now has partnerships at each of the Big Four broadcast networks. (He hosts New Year's Rockin' Eve at ABC, recently signed on to continue with American Idol on Fox and has inked a one-year deal with NBCUniversal that includes manning the major awards show carpets in 2015, along with other duties).

Additional performers will be announced shortly. Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 1, at 10 a.m. ET via Ticketmaster or by calling 800-745-3000. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public on July 28 to 31.
