As the doctor who presided over Michael Jackson‘s death stands trial and the world is preoccupied with the grisly details of his final hours, Cirque du Soleil is preparing to honor the fallen icon with a spectacular tribute to his musical legacy.
The project, dubbed the ‘Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour,’ will launch October 2 in Montreal, and is only part of what the Jackson estate has planned for the coming year.
Most of the considerable hype surrounding the ‘Twilight’ series has centered on the many, many books and movie tickets it’s sold, but the franchise has also been a musical phenomenon, generating more than 4.5 million units in sales over three soundtrack albums.
With the next installment in the series scheduled to reach theaters on November 18, dedicated Twi-hards — not to mention music retailers — have been eagerly awaiting news about its soundtrack. On Monday, Atlantic Records obliged, releasing the full track listing and artwork via Twitter.
The opening for a new INXS lead singer has been in a state of flux since Michael Hutchence’s untimely death in 1997. Even though details have seemed more uncertain than ever, it turns out that Ciaran Gribbon has taken over the reins with the new leaked demo, ‘Tiny Summer.’
Prior to this announcement, rumors sparked that the mystery voice belonged to none other than Hutchence’s old friend Bono. However, U2 fans needn’t worry anymore about their favorite front man going back on the gig market.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has mailed out the ballots for its 27th annual list of potential inductees, leaving it to the organization’s 500 voters to pick the winners from an eclectic group that includes first-time nominees as well as returning contenders.
Newly eligible artists who made this year’s cut include Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Guns N’ Roses, Heart, and Eric B. & Rakim, while the Beastie Boys, Donna Summer, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are among the veteran hopefuls.
‘The Voice’ hasn’t even started its second season yet, but rumors are already flying about the show’s third season — specifically, that Christina Aguilera was in danger of being fired from her position as one of the competition’s coaches.
Xtina fans can breathe a sigh of relief, however because a network spokesperson has refuted the rumors, and it sounds like her chair at the judge’s table is safe.
If you feel like those wacky ‘Glee’ kids are everywhere lately, you aren’t alone — heck, even Cory Monteith supposedly thinks they need to take it down a notch. But in between all that singing, dancing and carrying on, the show is spreading an important pro-arts message, and the latest ‘Glee’ project is backing it up with some serious cash.
He’s definitely best known for his acting résumé, but William Shatner isn’t just the guy who played James T. Kirk, T.J. Hooker, and Denny Crane; he’s actually enjoyed a long, albeit sporadic and rather irony-drenched, recording career, releasing four albums (including a double live release) over the last 25 years.
It’s been a few years since Madonna released her last album of original material, and in that time, a whole new crop of budding pop divas — including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Ke$ha — has emerged.
But it won’t be long before Madonna returns to reclaim the throne. According to a recent interview, she’s nearing the finish line on her next album, the follow-up to 2008′s ‘Hard Candy,’ and plans to release it next spring.
When Lady Gaga opened the MTV VMAs as her male alter ego Jo Calderone on Sunday, she triggered yet another wave of the obsessive buzz that has surrounded her reign as one of pop’s biggest-selling stars, with pundits across the media spectrum weighing in on how her performance went and what it all meant.
Three weeks after a brutal public beating forced Gavin DeGraw to temporarily withdraw from his slot on the Maroon 5/Train tour, he’s back on the road.
DeGraw rejoined the tour last week, in time for its stop at the New York State Fair, and managed to get in a few dates at the tail end of his scheduled run, including shows in Uncasville, Conecticut; Syracuse, New York; and Holmdel, New Jersey.
