temple2016In 1991, rock supergroup Temple of the Dog released a single, self-titled album. Now, on the 25th anniversary of Temple of the Dog, the band is planning a reissue of that album as well as their first ever tour together. The tour will stop in Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, where the band first formed.
Temple of the Dog is made up of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and guitarists Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, plus Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron, who has been a drummer for both bands. Cornell said in a statement:
We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do, play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago. This is something no one has ever seen. We wanted to stop and recognize that we did this and pay homage.
Though this will be their first tour as a group, Temple of the Dog has reunited a few times over the past few years, including at a benefit concert in 2014

Nov. 4 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Tower Theater)
Nov. 7 — New York, New York (Madison Square Garden)
Nov. 11 — San Francisco, California (Bill Graham Civic Center)
Nov. 14 — Los Angeles, California (The Forum)

Gwen Stefani Wants to Get Personal With Fans on Tour

Posted by gpadmin On July - 16 - 2016

via:billboard.com
gwenstefani2016More than merely entertain, Gwen Stefani wants to make friends and influence people with her This Is What The Truth Feels Like Tour, which kicks off July 12 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
"The whole show for me is not about what I'm wearing or even how I sing," Stefani told Billboard during a conference call with reporters promoting the tour, her fourth solo trek. "It's really about the connection and connecting. I want people to feel like they know me by the end of it, and if I have to slap 'em around and tell 'em what to do, by the end of the show I want to walk away and feel like we know each other and that we have a connection. So all of the other stuff -- the lights, the video screens, the costumes, the makeup -- to me what's punk is saying, 'You will have fun and I will control you, and by the end of this we're gonna be best friends.' That's my attitude. "But I do love all the rest of it too."
There will be plenty of the rest, in fact. Stefani is deep into rehearsals with her new live band and the eight dancers that will be part of the shows. Meanwhile, Stefani and longtime collaborator Sophie Muller have been working on visuals for the production, even during the Memorial Day weekend while Stefani was visiting boyfriend Blake Shelton in Oklahoma. "We're going to do some more in New York," Stefani says. "Basically it's like having the opportunity to do little miniature videos that go behind the songs. Every time we get a chance we get in front of the camera and do some more creative stuff. There's a lot....[Muller] is like a muse for me."
Muller also directed the just-released video for "Misery," the latest single from the This Is What the Truth Feels Like album. "I'm shocked by the response, I have to say," Stefani said. "It's such a traditional type of old-school video, I didn't know if people would be kind of bored with that." After the quick shoots for the "Used to Love You" video and the real-time Grammy Awards creation of "Make Me Love You" -- both also directed by Muller -- "Misery" was produced over a whopping two days in the abandoned Sears building in Los Angeles, which Stefani considered a "luxury." "[It's] what we love the most, which is just fashion and making beautiful images," Stefani explained. "It was like an art project...like, how many outfits and looks can we do in one day? It was kind of like a Vogue fashion shoot, but to music and actually moving. It was just a lot of fun."
As far as the tour set list, Stefani and company have learned the entire This Is What The Truth Feels LIke album, but she's still determining what she'll play. "I'm still working out all the kinks," she said. "I have three albums of work and it makes it so much more fun to have all that new music. I'm basically trying to tweet everybody and say, 'What songs do you really want to hear?' I don't want to disappoint anyone. This tour is about giving, and I want people to walk away and go, 'Oh my god, I'll never forget that night!' That's my goal. I'm gonna play all the hits, obviously. I haven't chosen costumes yet, but you know I'm gonna go for it on that. My whole life is, 'What am I gonna wear?' so I'm really excited about that part."
Of course, This Is What Truth Feels Like features some of Stefani's most personal material to date, chronicling the breakup of her marriage to Bush's Gavin Rossdale and her subsequent relationship with Shelton. She expects a cathartic tone throughout the night, even if the likes of "Hollaback Girl" and even "Misery" will put a bit of happy face on the proceedings.
"It's going to be super-emotional, yes," she acknowledged. "Even, like, going back in time when I did those shows with No Doubt last summer; I was literally in the middle of hell in my personal life...so I'll be revisiting those emotions I had then. But it's incredible to be in the position of being a songwriter and sharing your story with people and having people relate to it. It makes you feel better about being in your own life. I just really am in that moment right now, in disbelief that all this is happening now. I'm super, super grateful."
Stefani did not address reports that surfaced this week about slow ticket sales for the tour; in fact, a reporter who raised the question was cut off by her handlers. But she is looking forward to having Eve on the tour, reuniting her with the her collaborator on the singles "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" in 2001 and "Rich Girl" in 2004. "She was just one of the names that came up, and it seemed to make so much sense and seemed so fun," Stefani said. "She literally is one of the most talented girls I've ever been in a room with. It's so crazy to watch her. So we're gonna be able to...do those songs together onstage. I couldn't think of anybody else I'd want to be onstage with, especially a girl. She's dope, so I'm excited."

STING, PETER GABRIEL Announce 2016 Tour Dates

Posted by gpadmin On January - 19 - 2016

stingpg2016Sting and Peter Gabriel will join forces this summer for a month-long co-headlining North American trek dubbed the Rock Paper Scissors Tour.
The 19-date tour will open up June 21st at Columbus, Ohio's Nationwide Arena and circle the continent before coming to a close in Edmonton, Alberta on July 24th. The pair previously toured together back in the Eighties in support of Amnesty International. "What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen," Gabriel said in a statement. Added Sting, "I'm very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am."
Speaking to The Associated Press, Sting compared the Rock Paper Scissors trek to his 2014 joint tour with Paul Simon. "We traded songs, we traded musicians, we sang together. And the take home that people got from that was they loved it when we did things together," Sting said.
Tickets for Rock Paper Scissors will go on sale beginning January 25th. Join the Sting.com Fan Club today and be one of the first to gain access to tickets to see Sting and Peter Gabriel on the road. The Sting.com Fan Club presale begins Wednesday, January 20 at 10am (local)

GnR Hints of 2016 Reunion

Posted by matt wilson On December - 29 - 2015

gnr2016reunionUPDATE 1/19: Joining the nighttrain fanclub on gunsnroses.com will get you presale codes for shows that have presales. Vegas today is one.
UPDATE 01/05: According to a post on the popular GUNS N' ROSES fan forum MyGNRForum.com, Axl Rose's previously announced appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" program will no longer take place on Tuesday, January 5. Early Monday, Rose was listed as the show's first guest for the Tuesday broadcast and, for some reason, the GUNS N' ROSES singer's name was removed from the site by mid-afternoon.

UPDATE 2: (12/30) After months of rumors, mysterious teases, subtle, but telling, website updates and other evidence, Axl Rose will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live next week (likely Wed Jan 6) to address the talk about the classic Guns N' Roses lineup getting back together. It seems the lineup will include Axl, Slash, and Duff McKagan. There is no word on whether original guitarist Izzy Stradlin or drummer Steven Adler will appear, although that seems unlikely.
Some write that Adler's original replacement Matt Sorum is in, while other reports have suggested that current GnR drummer Frank Ferrer and guitarist Richard Fortus will round out the lineup.

UPDATE 1: Guns N’ Roses, with founding members Axl Rose and Slash, will headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., set for April 15-17 and April 22-24, according to multiple sources. The reunited band is also negotiating with promoters to play as many as 25 football stadiums in North America in the summer of 2016, and is scheduled to be one of the first acts to play the new Las Vegas Arena, set to open April 6. Guns N' Roses is said to be asking as much as $3 million per show, with tickets topping out in the $250-$275 range.
The last show Axl Rose and Slash played together was on July 17, 1993 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires.

original story: Guns N Roses marketing team is really doing a great job slowly leaking bits of info to the media to plant the seeds of excitement for their eventual reunion announcement. The band’s website was updated over the weekend to feature the classic 80’s logo, further fueling speculation that Axl, Slash, Duff and maybe more classic GNR members are getting the band back together, although the rumor is it's just those three.
We’ve been hearing some reports from fans who showed up early for a Star Wars screening and saw some GNR teasers. The teasers would air during AMC theaters’ "First Look," that package of commercials they try to pass off as a show. In between commercials, they would air snippets of crowd shots with riffs from "Welcome to the Jungle" playing, and then during the final snippet there was a "Coming Soon" graphic.
It’s safe to say that by the time the New Year rolls around, maybe shortly after…maybe shortly before… Guns N Roses will announce they’re reuniting. Will it be at Coachella or somewhere else? I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.
Of course we will post it here when we get confirmed dates and presales.

AC/DC Announce 2016 Tour Dates

Posted by gpadmin On December - 14 - 2015

acdctour2016AC/DC will return to the United States for a second leg of their Rock or Bust tour early next year. The dates kick off on Groundhog Day in Tacoma, Washington and run through early April, when they end at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Tickets go on sale December 18th.
Earlier this year, the hard rockers played a run of dates in the U.S., in addition to a number of international gigs. Rolling Stone described the first stop of their North American tour in Foxborough, Massachusetts as "spectacular" and praised guitarist-songwriter Angus Young for "teasing the crowd for adulation while tossing off blistering solos and indelible riffs." The first run of Rock or Bust gigs signaled the return of drummer Chris Slade, who played with the group in the late Eighties and early Nineties and filled the shoes of the beleaguered Phil Rudd. The latter drummer, who joined the group in 1975, has spent much of the last year in New Zealand's court system dealing with charges ranging from drug possession to threatening to kill. In July, he was sentenced to eight months of home detention. In August, he told reporters in New Zealand that he wanted to "get my job back, get back on the road and make a lot of money."
The tour also marked the return of guitarist Stevie Young, who has replaced founding rhythm guitarist (and uncle) Malcolm Young. The elder guitar player has been suffering from dementia and is no longer able to tour. Stevie, who played on Rock or Bust, previously filled in for Malcolm on the band's 1988 tour for their Blow Up Your Video album when the guitarist was battling alcoholism.
Despite the setbacks, Angus was adamant last winter that the group would make the most of 2015 and future touring. "Every year has its ups and downs, I suppose, but it's been pretty rough, yeah," he told Rolling Stone. "But we will definitely be out there. We are committed to do this."

PEARL JAM Confirm 2016 Tour

Posted by matt wilson On December - 12 - 2015

pearljam2016tourThis afternoon, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and manager Kelly Curtis took part in a Twitter Q&A, revealing some of their plans for 2016, as Alternative Nation points out.
Curtis confirmed that Pearl Jam will tour in 2016, with the first batch of dates to be announced at the beginning of the year. Additionally, he said the band has something planned to mark their 25th anniversary, but couldn’t share any specifics. If you recall, Pearl Jam celebrated their 20th anniversary with a three-day music festival.
Asked about the prospects of a new album, Curtis said Pearl Jam are “always in and out of the studio and constantly writing.” However, Ament said nothing has been recorded. Pearl Jam’s last album came in the form of 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
Pearl Jam was formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1990. Since its inception, the band's line-up has comprised Eddie Vedder (lead vocals), Mike McCready (lead guitar), Stone Gossard (rhythm guitar) and Jeff Ament (bass). The band's fifth member is drummer Matt Cameron (also of Soundgarden), who has been with the band since 1998
Pearl Jam hits include Jeremy, Even Flow, Better Man, Alive, Once, Animal, Dissident, Corduroy, Black, Daughter.

Dixie Chicks Announce 2016 North American Tour Dates and Presale

Posted by matt wilson On November - 16 - 2015

dixiechicks2016The Dixie Chicks are ready to party in the U.S.A.
The Grammy-winning group will kick off its "DCX MMXVI World Tour" on June 1 in Cincinnati. It wraps up the tour Oct. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The group will visit more than 40 cities, including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Dallas, and Toronto.
On March 10, 2003, during a London concert, nine days before the March 19, 2003 invasion of Iraq, lead vocalist Maines told the audience: "We don't want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States (George W. Bush) is from Texas". The positive reaction to this statement from the British audience contrasted with the negative reaction including boycotts that ensued in the US, where the band was denounced by talk-show conservatives,while their albums were discarded in public protest.
The Dixie Chicks are Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire. Their last album, "Taking the Long Way," was in 2006. It won the Grammy for album of the year. And its hit single, "Not Ready to Make Nice," won song and record of the year Grammys. Robison and Maguire, who are sisters, teamed up to form the duo Court Yard Hounds and released albums in 2010 and 2013. Maines released her first solo album in 2013.
The Dixie Chicks' North American tour will follow the group's European tour that begins in April.

Maroon 5 Announce Fall 2016 Tour

Posted by matt wilson On November - 6 - 2015

maroon5vtour2016If you’ve been watching The Voice and wishing Adam Levine was on the stage and in front of you, you’re in luck. Maroon 5 announced a North American tour for 2016 Friday, but fans will have to wait until next fall to see Adam Levine & Co.
The 26-date tour kicks off in San Antonio on Sept. 3 and ends in Oakland, California Oct. 16. Tove Lo, Phases, and R. City — whose song “Locked Away” features Levine — will join the group for #M5OnTheRoad next year. The band will spend the 2016’s early months performing in Mexico and South America.
“It’s gonna be awesome, we’re super excited to get out there,” he says. “Very pumped.” And Levine told On Air with Ryan Seacrest this morning he credits the band’s more recent success with the ability to keep pace with pop trends and adapt.
“We find ourselves in this position where we just continue to have this amazing success,” he said. “Having our songs on the radio has been the fuel in the tank for the band to perform live. We’ve always considered ourselves to be a live band. I think that’s the cornerstone of who we are.”

Presales Begin Nov 9.

Tracy Morgan Announces 2016 Picking Up the Pieces Stand-Up Tour

Posted by gpadmin On October - 20 - 2015

from ap.com

tracymorgan2016After renewing his comedy career with appearances on "Saturday Night Live" and at the Emmy Awards, Tracy Morgan will embark on a nationwide stand-up this winter. The "Tracy Morgan: Picking Up the Pieces" tour is set to begin Feb. 5 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, it was announced Tuesday.
Morgan was in a coma for two weeks following a June 2014 accident, when a truck on the New Jersey Turnpike crashed into the back of a van he was riding in. Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the crash. Morgan made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards last month, with a more substantive turn as guest host on Oct. 17 of NBC'S "Saturday Night Live," the show where he was once a cast member. In one sketch, he was joined by his fellow cast members of "30 Rock," Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer.
"People are wondering, 'Can he speak? Does he have 100 percent mental capacity?'" he said in his opening monologue. "The truth is, I never did. I might even be a few points higher." Morgan was unavailable for comment about his concert tour, although in a news release he described it as getting back on a bike after falling down — "you don't forget where the pedals are."
His bookings, from February until the end of May, include some cold weather gigs: Vermont and Ontario in February. But he does have two dates in Hawaii in early April. He will perform three shows in New Jersey, including at a theater in New Brunswick, about 20 miles north of where the accident happened.

Fall Out Boy Announce ‘Wintour’ 2016 with Awolnation

Posted by matt wilson On October - 13 - 2015

fobwinterFall Out Boy will head out on a winter tour – or "Wintour," as the band calls out – this February when the "Uma Thurman" crew hits the road with Awolnation for 20 shows. "Wintour is coming. This will end the story. It will give us all the chance to work through it and become who we are supposed to be," bassist Pete Wentz said of the trek.
The Wintour, which kicks off February 25th in San Juan, Puerto Rico, will be highlighted by Fall Out Boy's March 4th gig at New York's Madison Square Garden as well as a March 12th hometown show at Chicago's United Center.
A fan club pre-sale starts October 14th, a local presale begins October 15th, while general public tickets will become available starting October 16th; check out the Fall Out Boy official site for complete on-sale information. The passwords for both days will be posted in the members section of getpresales.com.

In addition to the Wintour, Pete Wentz revealed that American Beauty/American Psycho's opening track "Irresistible" will be issued as a single Friday, but in a new version featuring Demi Lovato. "'Irresistible' always felt like it could become something else, something exciting, strange, beyond," Wentz wrote on his Medium. "I think Demi Lovato has one of the most powerful voices today. So we worked through an afternoon and she just got it. Excited for you guys to hear this new version of the song on Friday."

Kenny Chesney Announces 2016 Tour With Miranda Lambert

Posted by gpadmin On September - 22 - 2015

via rolling stone
chesneylambertTwo weeks after closing out the Big Revival Tour with a pair of sold-out stadium dates in Foxborough, Massachusetts, Kenny Chesney is already making plans for next summer. This time, he'll take along Miranda Lambert for the ride, marking the first time the two country titans have toured together since 2009. Presales for the tour begin 9/23, but you must be a paying member of the Kenny Chesney fanclub to gain access.
Super-sized lineups are a staple of Chesney's annual tours. Eric Church, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Zac Brown Band and Kacey Musgraves have all joined him on the road over the past decade, turning Chesney into one of America's biggest ticket-sellers not only in country music, but across all genres. Adding Lambert to next year's stadium run — along with Sam Hunt, whose three platinum-selling singles have earned the newcomer a broad audience that straddles the border between pop and country, and Old Dominion, whose members wrote Chesney's "Save It for a Rainy Day" before joining him on this year's Big Revival trek — will likely keep Chesney at the top of that list, even without, as of now, a new album to promote. While both singers were recently nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards, Chesney insists his relationship with Lambert is based on respect, not competition.
"Miranda is the real deal," he said in a statement announcing the pair's 2016 tour, whose dates have yet to be announced. "She's a songwriter, first, and a real vocalist. She puts it all out there when she's on stage, and I loved touring with her so much in 2009, I can't believe it's taken us this long to get her back out here — because I love every single thing about who she is as an artist and a person." Before his tour bus pulls out of the gate again, though, Chesney plans on relaxing at home. . .and doing a little writing, too.
"I haven't written a song in a while and I'm looking forward to getting to that place where I can shut my mind down enough to even begin that process," he told Rolling Stone Country days after his final shows in Foxborough. "I wrote several songs for The Big Revival, but since then we've either been preparing to tour, touring, or promoting that record and I haven't been in a creative place to be still enough to get into that spot. I'm looking forward to that."

Black Sabbath Announce Final Tour Dates ‘The End’

Posted by gpadmin On September - 3 - 2015

sabbathBlack Sabbath have announced "The End," their farewell tour set to kick off in January. The group is promising concerts that "surpass all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever." The North American leg begins in January in Omaha and ends in February at New York City's Madison Square Garden. An additional leg of the tour could be announced at a later date.
As with the group's reunion album, 13, and its subsequent tours, the Black Sabbath lineup on this tour will consist of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. Although they did not specify who would be playing drums, the drummer from Osbourne's solo group, Tommy Clufetos, played all of the previous dates. Prior to recording the LP, the band had a falling out with original drummer Bill Ward, who told Rolling Stone in April that he did not know whether or not he was still a group member. "I wish them well, and I have no further comment," Ward tells Rolling Stone in a statement about this tour.
Osbourne has said previously that the group would also be recording a final album. Last September, he told Metal Hammer that he was hoping to begin writing sessions with his bandmates in early 2015. "If we're going to do [it], I want to do it before I'm 70," the 66-year-old rocker said. "Time isn't on our side. So [Sharon Osbourne] made the call and came back and said, 'Yeah, the record company wants another album.' I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again." Black Sabbath's tour announcement did not mention a new record.

Jennifer Nettles Announces 2016 Tour Dates

Posted by gpadmin On September - 2 - 2015

jennet16After parting ways with her longtime label Universal Nashville earlier this month, Jennifer Nettles has found a new home: the singer-songwriter, Broadway actress and one-half of Grammy-winning duo Sugarland has signed with Big Machine Records. The label, overseen by Music Row impresario (and American Idol mentor) Scott Borchetta, will release Nettles' new album in 2016. A single is expected next month.
Nettles, who is currently filming the NBC TV-movie Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors in Atlanta, will launch a headlining tour in the Georgia capital on October 23rd. Dubbed the Playing With Fire Tour, the trek will stretch into December, with special guests Brandy Clark and Ryan Kinder. There is a presale at 10am on Wednesday September 2.
As part of Sugarland, with partner Kristian Bush, Nettles has scored five Billboard Number One singles on the country chart. In 2014, she released her first solo album That Girl and earlier this summer debuted the new song "Sugar" at the Fourth of July festivities in Philadelphia. It's not certain if that track will appear on her upcoming LP for Big Machine.
After starring in the Bob Fosse musical Chicago on Broadway, Nettles has expanded her acting résumé with a lead role as Dolly Parton's mother in the NBC biopic, set to air December 10th. "I have a really close relationship with my mom," Nettles told Rolling Stone Country recently, "and from what I can tell in the script, she and her mom had a very close relationship too. And her mom recognized her special talent, and her special gift, and the really bright light that she was in the world."

Hard rock titans DISTURBED have announced a 2016 tour in support of their upcoming sixth studio release, "Immortalized". The shows have been announced in surprisingly small venues. The tour, which kicks off March 11 in Vancouver, will offer a rare chance to see DISTURBED's arena-ready show in an up close and personal setting, such as The Fillmore in San Francisco, Irving Plaza in New York City, Roseland Theater in Portland, and more. Fans who pre-order the new album on Disturbed1.com will receive a unique passcode and have exclusive access to the ticket presale on August 18 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets are available to the general public starting on August 21. "Our return from hiatus was for one reason: we are dying for our fix of the live experience," said DISTURBED singer David Draiman. "We need to satisfy our addiction to the feeling you get when you play to the most dedicated and vibrant fan base in existence, the DISTURBED ones. We know the arena shows will come, but we wanted to start out
feeling like it did in the old days. Intimate, hot, and intense. We can't wait. Prepare yourselves. The Leviathan has risen."
"Immortalized" will be made available on August 21 through Reprise Records. Lead single "The Vengeful One" is out now, along with the accompanying animated video from award-winning filmmaker Phil Mucci.
