The 1975 reschedule February 2020 tour dates for October 2020

If you live in Europe and were pumped to see the 1975 in the spring, then we have some bad news for you guys.

On Wednesday (Dec. 11), the British band made the disheartening news that due to complications with their upcoming new album, their European tour set for February 2020 will now happen in October.

“Due to the time needed to complete the recording of the upcoming album Notes on a Conditional Form, we have made the decision to move the 1975’s EU tour from February 2020 to October 2020,” the band posted on social media.

All tickets purchased for the February dates will remain valid. For those who will not be able to attend the newly rescheduled shows (because life does happen after all), refunds will be available at the original point of purchase.

The newly rescheduled tour dates include gigs in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Berlin, Zurich, Milan, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Oslo.

In addition to the postponed dates, the foursome has also added four new stops to the rescheduled itinerary: Oct. 8 at Le Zénith in Paris, Oct. 21 at Stodola in Warsaw, Oct. 23 at Gasometer in Vienna, and Oct. 26 at Saku Surrhall in Tallinn.

While a slew of the band’s European shows was rescheduled, it looks like they will still appear at Australia’s Laneway Festival and headline their United Kingdom shows.

The 1975’s much-anticipated new album Notes on a Conditional Form is due out Feb. 21, 2020, through Dirty Hit / Interscope. Pre-orders are available for purchase here.

The band’s full statement about the postponed shows can be read below:

Due to the time needed to complete the recording of the upcoming album Notes on a Conditional Form, we have made the decision to move The 1975’s EU tour from February 2020 to October 2020.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that everyone can make the new shows.

We understand that this will be a cause of upset, but rest assured the delay will make for the best shows possible.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you in October.

All original tickets remain valid. For all those who cannot make the new dates, you will be able to get refunds at your original point of purchase.

Kelly Clarkson to take over Las Vegas with a 2020 residency

Singer.

Talk show host.

“The Voice” judge.

Actress.

Las Vegas performer?

What can’t Kelly Clarkson do?!

On Friday (Nov. 1), the multi-talented performer revealed plans to join a slew of fellow musicians who currently have Las Vegas residency gigs on their resumes.

Titled “Kelly Clarkson: Invincible,” the show is set to open on Wednesday, April 1, at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Exclusive pre-sale ticket access begins on Monday, Nov. 4, at 10 a.m. PST and concludes on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 10 p.m. PST. General ticket sales start on Friday, Nov. 8, at 10 a.m. PST.

A slew of bundles will be available for the upcoming shows, including a VIP Experience bundle and a limited number of meet and greets.

Ticket prices begin at $59 plus applicable tax and fees. The passes will be available online and at Planet Hollywood’s box office (for those of you who want to do this the old-school way).

According to a press statement, the show will “immerse fans in a one-of-a-kind up-close music experience that rocks through her nearly two-decade-long catalog of award-winning smash hits.”

“I’ve always loved performing in Las Vegas and the high energy of the crowds there,” Clarkson reveals.

“So many of my musical idols have had, and still have, incredible residencies on The Strip, and I’m so excited to create my own!”

To announce the Las Vegas residency, Clarkson took to the stage on her talk show to perform a medley of her songs during her now-famous Kellyoke. After her own assortment, which she admits makes her feel like a tool, she dropped the bomb surrounded by showgirls.

Because the massive news wasn’t enough, Clarkson also gifted the studio audience with two vouchers apiece for the forthcoming event.

Not a bad deal.

The events for the “Kelly Clarkson: Invincible” can be found below.

Watch Imagine Dragons’ ‘The Origins Experience’ event

Back in October, Imagine Dragons announced a massive event set to take place in their hometown just in time for their new album’s release. At the time of the reveal, there was no information given as to what fans should expect. On Wednesday (Nov. 7), the Las Vegas-founded act took over the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas for their massive Origins Experience show.

As speculated by many, the two-hour event featured the band performing several tracks from Origins including “Natural,” “Zero,” “Machine,” and their recently released single, “Bad Lair.” In addition to their new song, the band also incorporated other tunes from their discography like “It’s Time,” “Shots,” “Thunder,” “Believer,” “Radioactive,” and more.

Watch the complete concert above.

Imagine Dragons’ new studio album, Origins, is due out this Friday, Nov. 9. Pre-orders for the record are still available here. According to the band, the forthcoming release is the companion album to 2017’s Evolve.

Imagine Dragons will return to the Cosmopolitan’s stage at the end of December. Back in September, the band was confirmed as one of two acts set to headline the iconic venue’s New Year’s Eve festivities. Tickets are now available for purchase online at the Cosmopolitan’s website or through Ticketmaster.

Muse, The Killers, Twenty One Pilots to headline iHeartRadio’s ALTer Ego concert

Muse, Twenty One Pilots, and the Killers are just some of the rock bands that will make their way to California in early 2019 for iHeartRadio’s second annual ALTer Ego concert. On Monday (Oct. 1), the media giant confirmed the lineup for their alternative music-centric show. Joining Twenty One Pilots, Muse and the Killers on the newly announced roster will be Weezer, Rise Against, Bishop Briggs, and the Revivalists.

According to a press release, the event will broadcast live across over 70 alternative and rock iHeartRadio stations, giving listeners who couldn’t make it the show the opportunity to hear some of rock’s biggest artists live.

“This has become alternative music’s biggest night,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Millions of fans will be listening and watching this incredible lineup performing on stage at the Forum.”

“This will be one of the strongest alternative performance lineups to ever appear on one stage,” mirrors Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia.

“It’s such a strong lineup that it’s impossible to refer to any one of these incredible artists as the headliner – in fact, several of the performers have told us that it’s a show they would want to go to even if they weren’t already on the bill.”

Those who would like to attend the event will be given a special 24-hour, pre-sale offer courtesy of Los Angeles alternative radio station, ALT 98.7. ALT 98.7’s pre-sale will begin this Thursday, Oct. 4, at 10 a.m. PST and conclude this Friday, Oct. 5, at 10 a.m. PST. General ticket sales will then begin on Friday at 10 a.m.

iHeartRadio’s ALTer Ego concert will take place on Jan. 19, 2019 at the Forum in Los Angeles.

ALTer Ego joins a lengthy list of iHeartRadio concert series including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the iHeartRadio Music Awards, iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball concert tour, the newly launched iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T, and the iHeartRadio Wango Tango by AT&T.

Fall Out Boy to headline March for Our Lives benefit concert

A month after the senseless shooting at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., the students have become the vocal spokespeople for gun control and school safety. Following the shooting, the students were quick to join forces to speak out against gun violence and organize the March for Our Lives march which will take place later this month.

While the students are doing their part to speak out against the government, entertainers are doing their part to help them out. In conjunction with the flagship March for Our Lives march in Washington D.C., Fall Out Boy have announced plans to headline the Stay Amped concert the night before the protest.

On Tuesday (March 13), the Chicago-founded band, who all happen to be fathers, announced their plan to hold a benefit concert hours before all those marchers take to the streets of D.C.

“This is a time for action. We need to support the Parkland teens, and kids across the country,” Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz said in a press statement. “We have their backs, and we must demand our lawmakers do more to end this gun violence crisis.”

Joining Fall Out Boy on the bill will be G-Eazy, Bebe Rexha, Lizzo, and other unannounced surprise guests.

Proceeds from the Stay Amped benefit concert will go to two anti-gun violence organizations; Everytown for Gun Safety and Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence.

Everytown is the largest gun-violence prevention organization in the United States while Giffords was formed after former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in an attempted assassination in 2011. Since the assassination attempt, Giffords has been advocating for stricter gun laws.

“Music brings people together, fuels our energy and offers us inspiration. It’s for those reasons music played such an important role in my recovery,” Giffords said. “I’m thrilled that the night before students take to the streets to march in communities across the country, this concert will provide an opportunity for us to gather and show support for the activism of young people and to encourage them to stay loud as they demand a safer future.”

Tickets for the Stay Amped concert will go on sale beginning this Wednesday, March 14, at 10 a.m. ET on Ticketfly.

The Stay Amped benefit concert announcement comes weeks after Parkland/Coral Springs-founded band New found Glory announced plans to hold their own benefit show in Pompano Beach, Fla. in May. Last week, rock-centric music festival Fort Rock announced plans to offer 50 percent off discounts on all general admission weekend passes as long as you sign the Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’t petition, take a screenshot of the signed petition (or forward the confirmation email), and send it to a specific email.

Corey Taylor, Halestorm, Fort Rock producers support school safety initiatives

fortrock

In the month since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the world has seen as its students, as well as students around the country, join forces to demand that the government do something about gun control and school safety. Last week, a benefit concert featuring Dashboard Confessional, former Yellowcard singer Ryan Key, and Parkland natives New Found Glory was announced and now, it looks like a massive music festival is getting in on the action.

On Wednesday (March 7), the people behind the World’s Loudest Month concert series, Danny Wimmer Presents, announced that they will be offering 50 percent off general admission weekend tickets to Fort Rock for those who sign the Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’t petition. The petition was created by high school student Julia Kemple of Kalamazoo, Mich. in response to last month’s school shooting. The petition has so far garnered signatures from over 200,000 people across the nation.

Backing the music festival’s decision to support the petition and the students’ gun control/school safety movement are headliners Corey Taylor and Halestorm as well as Danny Wimmer Presents CEO/Broward Country native Danny Hayes.

“I’m absolutely behind this movement. Not only the name itself, but the reason and the cause. As a father, my one concern is my children. The fact that no one is doing anything worthwhile to change the horrendous laws and circumstances around these shootings is unacceptable,” Taylor expresses in a press statement. “[So] if the adults can’t extricate themselves from the politics that are keeping them from ACTUALLY making a difference, I support the generation who will.”

“To all the students that have been affected by gun violence, and to students everywhere, YOU are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Our future is what YOU make it and the path is yours to blaze. YOU are the fire!,” a joint press statement from Halestorm reads. “We are proud to stand by you as we push to make this planet a better place.”

“The wording of Julia’s petition is profound. We should all be ashamed that our nation’s youth feels unprotected by those in charge,” begins Hayes in his own press statement. “As a Broward County, Florida native, the Stoneman Douglas tragedy really hit home for me. We are so deeply touched and moved by the courage and fortitude of the students at Stoneman Douglas High School. They have turned trauma into strength. As a society we must act quickly to give them the protection they deserve.”

This special promotion will be available to future Fort Rock ticket buyers. For those who already purchased a ticket to the festival, the concert promoters still ask that they sign the petition and spread it to as many people as they can. Those who would like to take advantage of this promotion are asked to simply sign the petition, take a screenshot of the signed petition (or forward the confirmation email), and send it to dh@dwpresents.com. This promotion will only be available until April 1, 2018 while supplies last.

On Feb. 14, an armed shooter entered Stoneman Douglas High School towards the end of the school day and began shooting, killing a total 17 people. Since then, the Douglas students have been vocal about supporting stricter gun control laws.

In conjunction with their movement, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington D.C. on Saturday, March 24, to demand that their lives and safety as well as the ending of gun violence and mass shootings become a priority. For those not in D.C., there will be almost 500 marches taking place worldwide. To find a local march or to sign the petition, head on over to the March For Our Lives website.

As for Fort Rock, the sixth incarnation of the annual music festival announced a major change when it was confirmed that they would no longer call the JetBlue Park in Fort Myers home. This year, Fort Rock will make its debut at Markham Park in Sunrise, Fla. Fort Rock will take place during the weekend of April 28-29.

This year’s lineup will include performances by Ozzy Osbourne, Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, Stone Sour, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, Stone Temple Pilots, Halestorm, and many more.

South Florida’s The Shark announces Sharkwrecked at the Riptide Music Festival

http://www.1043theshark.com/contest/win-sharkwrecked-riptide-music-festival-tickets

If you were an alternative music lover growing up in South Florida in the 2000s, then you experienced the struggle of trying to find a radio station that would meet your musical needs. Between the constant loop of Top 20 hits, rap and hip-hop, and indie college stations, if you liked “alternative” music, then you were glued to your CD or mp3 player (or the iPod later on). To fill the much-complained about void, radio station 104.3 The Shark was launched in 2015, much to the delight of those people. Since then, the station has done a great job of bringing artist who would normally pass over the lower part of the Sunshine State in favor of other locations.

On Monday (Sept. 26), The Shark once again proved why they earned the title of “Best Radio Station” earlier this year during the Miami New Times‘ yearly “The Best Of” poll. During the broadcast of their daily show, “The Big Mistake” DJs Ashley O. and Toast announced the first annual Sharkwrecked at the Riptide Music Festival. The event, which will take place on Saturday Dec. 3 in Ft. Lauderdale, will feature performances by a slew of artists such as Good Charlotte, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, The Struts, Silversun Pickups, Saint Motel and many more. While unveiling the news, the station’s mass emails to the Chum Club (the name for their email subscribers) also announced that there will be “more to be announced.”

Pre-sale tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday Sept. 30 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets for the event will be exclusively sold on the Riptide Music Festival’s website here. For a limited-time (and while supplies last), tickets for Sharkwrecked will be $35. For more information about the event or to subscribe to the Chum Club, head on over to The Shark’s website here. Earlier this year, the radio station launched their successful first mini music festival, Undertow Jam. The show included performances by Young the Giant, The Stumbellas, Bearhands, Joywave, JR JR , Finish Ticket, and Sharkwrecked artist, The Struts.
