The 25-year-old singer/actor is performing in the Under the Influence show for three nights at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
From May 20-22, James will debut a brand new, original song “Change” during the show.
“I’m honored that Frankie [Moreno] asked me to join him on stage with his new show Under the Influence, and I’m incredibly excited to collaborate with him on my new song ‘Change,’” James said in a statement. “His resume and experience is incredible, and I think we will make a great team. This performance will be the first time I’m playing any of my new music live, and I couldn’t ask for a better musician to accompany me.”
Tubeathon is a star-studded digital telethon and variety show with musical performances, live entertainment and celebrity appearances and served as an early kick-off to the American Red Cross’ 2016 Giving Day, a one-day fundraising effort designed to increase public emergency preparedness awareness and raise funds for the Red Cross and its mission to help families who have been affected by disasters such as home fires.
“Fans are expecting Logan and I to work together because we’re going to Italy to do some shows, but Big Time Rush has never broken up. We made it a point to do that. We didn’t want to be the guys who were like, ‘we’re done!’” he shared. “We’re a band. You’ll always be a band if you really care about the guys and are willing to work together, so I don’t see anything that would hold us back from working together again.”
Kendall continued, “Of course we talk about it and I think whenever it lines up with what everyone is doing, because we’re all so busy, I don’t see a reason why something special and fun wouldn’t happen. And I think fans would be excited about it. I think they should keep their hopes up because we’re not going to disappoint.”
“We all support each other,” Kendall added. “We knew coming into this that supporting each other on social networks was going to be a big deal. We even had conversations where we agreed that we’d always tweet each other’s stuff and take care of each other, and we have to this day.”
James Maslow looks hot while attending AOL BUILD Presents: Stream Con NYC at AOL Studios on Friday (October 30) in New York City.
The 25-year-old actor/singer recently opened up about starring as Watson in the upcoming traveling stage adaptation of Sherlock Holmes.
“We spent the first week reading, and tackling the British accent is something new for both David [Arquette] and me,” James told The Los Angeles Times. “Watson has stereotypically been portrayed as a little bit more upper class. But I had to find a counterpoint to David‘s Sherlock by taking Watson and giving him a little bit more grit. He’s a little more South London, still educated enough to be a doctor, of course, but didn’t necessarily come with the best background.”

James Maslow shows off his charming smile during his appearance on The Real, airing TODAY, Wednesday, October 14th.
The 25-year-old actor hit up the show to chat up his new gig on the stage as Dr. Watson in the Sherlock Holmes play, and divulged his craziest fan encounter to date.
“You know, one that I’ve told a couple times ’cause it’s just crazy: We were in New York, staying at some hotel near Times Square. And these fans… you had to have a key card just to ride the elevator,” James started off.
“So we [band Big Time Rush] assumed, ‘Okay, we can walk around and there can be no problems.’ And I don’t know, I tell you, it’s eleven in the morning, I feel I just woke up ‘cause I had a concert the night before and I’m going out on the 17th floor of some hotel and it opens up, I’m, like, on my phone [imitates pressing buttons], don’t expect anything. And I have five screaming girls just going crazy! And I’m like, ‘How did y’all get in here?’ and they wouldn’t tell me all. I’m like alright, ‘Well, you’ve got 17 floors. Let’s take some pictures. Let’s, you know, you wanna sign some stuff.’”
