Brand New Cover Nine Inch Nails in Manchester


Brand New have been taking some cues from Bruce Springsteen and have begun to cover some tracks during their sets on their current tour.

During their show in London last week, the band played “The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot” from Deja Entendu when they decided to do something a little different by including covers of Coldplay’s “Yellow” and Modest Mouse’s “Trailer Trash.”

Like London, the band did the same things at their show last night (April 18) in Manchester, but rather than including it as a live mix to one of their own songs, they went on to cover Nine Inch Nails’ “Wish” on its own. Watch the fan shot video below and tell us if there’s a song in your opinion that the band should cover in the future.

Brand New are currently on tour in Europe, scheduled to perform in Germany, England, and Italy followed by a touring stint in North America for selected stops in the United States and Canada.

Rihanna Hit in the Face with Chips


Fans of Rihanna sure do know how to show how they feel about the pop star showing up late to her own show.

Rihanna was in the United Kingdom the other day, on the last stop of her Diamonds World Tour when she showed up a little late. Of course, because the Manchester fans did pay a lot to see the “We Found Love” star perform on time, they were angered when she was tardy. When she went on to perform her 2010 hit, “Rude Boy,” the fans surely let her know just how they felt about her and her lateness.

Once she turned to ask the fans what they thought about her rendition of the song, her face was met with flying chips, showing that you can’t jut get away with being late because you’re a pop star. “There’s a good crazy and there’s a bad crazy,” Rihanna told the fans. “When you throw s–t up here, that’s an epic fail.”

“I want to get your gifts but I don’t want you to knock my people out,” she continued.  “I swear to God, cut that s–t out. Really? Chips? Chips though? That’s that important?”

After she was done lecturing the audience members, she returned back to her stage self telling them, “alright Manchester, for those of you who want to get jiggy and have a good f–king time, say my name.”

Sadly, this isn’t the first time that Rihanna has had trouble with fans on this tour. Last month, she threw her microphone at a fan that she believed gt to close to her during a performance of “We Found Love.” Earlier on in the tour there was another issue which did not involve the singer herself, but a woman supposedly got herpes from someone who was handing out sample of the pop star’s M.A.C. lipstick color, “Ri-Ri Woo.”

You can see the video of the incident below.

What do you guys think, does her lateness warrant the waste of chips?
