Hugh Jackman announces ‘The Man. The Music. The Show.’ world tour details

Hugh Jackman promised big news earlier this week and now, he’s delivered. On Thursday (Nov. 29), the performer announced plans to embark on a massive, one-man world tour during the months of May, June, and July. Armed with a live orchestra and his voice, Jackman’s upcoming excursion will find him performing in Europe, the United States, New Zealand, and his home country of Australia during the summer months.

Dubbed “The Man. The Music. The Show.,” the event’s set list will include songs from his past films like “The Greatest Showman” and “Les Miserables” which earned Jackman Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for his performance as Jean Valjean in the 2012 film adaptation. The set list will also reportedly include some Broadway songs from productions like “Oklahoma!” and “The Boy from Oz” which earned the actor a Tony Award in 2004.

The first leg of the tour will find Jackman performing at venues across Europe with stops in Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Manchester, and Dublin. The 12-stop jaunt will begin on May 13 at the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany and conclude with a two-night gig at the O2 Arena in London on June 2 and 3.

Following a couple of weeks off, Jackman will journey across the pond for the United States-centric leg of the tour. The 22-stop excursion will begin on June 18 at the Toyota Center in Houston and conclude with a double-night engagement at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on July 19 and 20.

Tickets for the newly announced tour will on sale beginning next Friday, Dec. 7, at 9 a.m. local time on Jackman’s website.

This is not the first time Jackman has performed his one-man act. The actor previously performed a similar show on Broadway and in Los Angeles where he raised money for the Motion Picture and Television Fund in 2013.

Though the tour will not kick off until mid-May, Jackman will give a short preview of the show with a two-song set at Rockefeller Center on Tuesday, Dec. 4. The performance will air live at 8 a.m. on the “TODAY” show as part of the show’s concert series.

Watch: Real Friends get beheaded in ‘Me First’

Real Friends are celebrating Halloween a couple of days ahead of time with their brand new music video. On Monday (Oct. 29), the Illinois-founded band unleashed the three-and-a-half-minute clip for their latest single, “Me First.” The video finds the five-piece trying to evade a beautiful serial killer who just so happens to be their boss. Sadly, the video concludes with things not turning out in the guys’ favor.

The video begins with the antagonist, a beautiful blonde, sitting in her mansion minding her own business. Once the music kicks in, the blonde turns from a subdued rich person to someone with a sinister secret behind her smile. In between the colored images of the blonde going about her house, are black-and-white shots of her in what looks to be a basement, with a cleaver in hand.

Unfortunately for the guys in the band, they work for the serial killer and have become her next victims. The rest of the clip follows the killer as she hunts down each of them and beheads them in her basement of secrets.

“Have you ever wanted to see our heads cut off?” asks bassist Kyle Fasel. “Well, look no further.”

Watch the complete music video for “Me First” above.

“Me First” is featured on Real Friends’ recently released record, Composure. The record was released back in July via Fearless Records.

Composure is the follow-up to band’s 2016 release, The Home Inside My Head.

In support of Composure‘s release, Real Friends previously confirmed plans to hit the road with Boston Manor throughout the end of October and into November. Their upcoming tour will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Irenic in San Diego and conclude almost a month alter on Nov. 25 at the House of Blues in Chicago. Real Friends’ tour dates can be found on their website here.

Watch the Smashing Pumpkins get their creepy on in ‘Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)’

The Smashing Pumpkins just released a brand new music video and let’s just say, things are about to get ghoulish. On Monday (Oct. 15), the Chicago-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts).” The six-minute clip begins with the band standing in front of a haunted house surrounded by fans and Mark McGrath.

McGrath plays the role of a DJ from a local radio station that is hosting an interesting challenge. The challenge is simple; spend the full night in the haunted house and the station will donate money to any charity of the winners’ choosing. At first, the band members think it’s going to be an easy challenge, but things start to take a turn for the creepy.

A “Goosebumps”-esque puppet comes to life and steals some glasses. A ghostly figure appears out of nowhere and looks like its ready to take its victim to the afterlife. A set of “twins” appear next to the bed of one of the guys all dressed in white. Then, there’s the ongoing lightning storm in the house that will not go away.

As the guys start roaming the house, they stumble in to a room. Sitting in the room, minding their own business are the shadowy characters while the mastermind behind the creepy encounters is caught red-handed.

Watch the music video for “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” above. The clip was directed by Corgan and longtime visual collaborator Linda Strawberry.

“Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” is featured on the Smashing Pumpkins’ upcoming new album, Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1: No Past. No Future. No Sun. The forthcoming Rick Rubin-produced record is due out Nov. 16.

Though the band has spent most of 2018 on the road in support of their reunion, the group has announced a handful of intimate anniversary shows. Those dates can be seen below.


Oct. 16 – London, UK @ Wembley Arena
Oct. 18 – Bologna, IT @ Unipol Arena

Watch: CHVRCHES explore young love and adventure in ‘Graffiti’

Months after releasing their much-anticipated third studio album, CHVRCHES have returned with a brand new music video for another track off the recently released record. On Tuesday (Oct. 9), the Scottish band unleashed the clip for their latest single, “Graffiti.” The almost-four-minute video follows two teenagers as they hang out and go on adventures in a one-day span.

The viewer watches as the pair ride a bike on deserted road, relax by a tree in a forest, listen to music and eat pizza in one of their houses, and chill (and float) inside of a creepily dark farmhouse. If you had any expectations of seeing any of the members of the band in the clip, then you may be let down. The complete music video centers around the two protagonists and their one-day adventure. Watch the complete music video for “Graffiti” above.

“Graffiti” is featured on CHVRCHES recently released record, Love is Dead. “Graffiti” joins previously released singles “Get Out,” “My Enemy,” “Never Say Die,” and “Miracle” on the group’s third studio effort.

Love is Dead was released in late May via Virgin EMI. Though it was met with mixed reactions from fans and critics alike, the album reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Top Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums chart. Love is Dead peaked right outside the Billboard 200 chart’s top ten, earning the No. 11 spot during the week of June 9, 2018.

Currently, the trio are in the midst of wrapping up their North American tour in support of Love is Dead. Tonight (Oct. 10), the three-piece will hit the stage at The Tabernacle in Atlanta. The list of remaining tour dates can be found here.

Elton John extends ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour dates

Elton John has always been one to make a grand entrance, so is it at all surprising that the entertainer decided to go out with a bang before officially retiring? Months after announcing plans to hit the touring circuit for his final “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour, John has now added even more tour stops to the already lengthy excursion. On Wednesday (Sept. 26), the entertainer added 25 new stops to his upcoming schedule. The newly announced dates will find the iconic performer returning to North America during the final months of 2019.

The newly added dates include several stops in Canada at venues in Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Toronto. In addition to the Canadian stops, the new run will also feature stops in Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Boston, and Memphis.

Tickets for the newly unveiled dates will go on sale beginning next Friday, Oct. 5.

Just this past week, John kicked off the first leg of his multi-year tour. The first leg of the tour will find him the musician on the road through February of 2019. After a short break, the singer will head across the pond for the first of many European legs of the tour.

John previously revealed he had plans to take the “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour to Asia in November of 2019, Australia in December of 2019, and South America in March of 2020.

After performing in Asia, Australia, and South America, John will reportedly head back to Europe in late 2020 before concluding the lengthy tour in North American some time in 2021.

Earlier this year, in conjunction with John’s retirement announcement, the musician released a huge 26-track double disc featuring covers of some of his most iconic tunes. The double album featured revamped versions of his songs by Lady Gaga, Florence and the Machine, The Killers, Little  Big Town, Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus, and more.  Listen to Lady Gaga’s cover of “Your Song” above.

Memphis May Fire announce ‘Broken,’ drop new single

With a couple of months left before they hit the North American touring circuit, Memphis May Fire have just confirmed that fans will have some new tunes to jam to during those gigs. On Friday (Sept. 21), the Texas-founded band announced plans to release their sixth studio album in the fall. Titled Broken, the new record is due out Nov. 16 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available on the band’s website.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the band released the record’s lead single; the hard-hitting “The Old Me.”

In a press statement, frontman Matty Mullins describes the inspiration behind the new track. As it turns out, the song was primarily inspired by the singer’s struggle with anxiety and depression and how he wishes to one day return to the person he used to be before his symptoms began to manifest.

“‘The Old Me’ is about my struggle with anxiety and depression,” Mullins’ letter begins.

“What feels like a war between good and evil, loathing the person I become mentally when it consumes me, and trying to remember what life was like before I lived with the symptoms. Ultimately hoping to one day become that person —’The Old Me’— again.”

Listen to “The Old Me” above.

In support of the ten-track album’s November release, Memphis May Fire were previously confirmed as one of Atreyu’s supporting acts during the California band’s fall tour. The upcoming trek will begin on Nov. 9 at the Van Buren in Phoenix and conclude over a month later on Dec. 13 at the House of Blues in Anaheim. the full list of upcoming dates can be found here while the complete track listing for Broken can be seen below.

Watch the Dangerous Summer live life to the fullest in ‘This is Life’

The Dangerous Summer just finished kicking off their fall time tour so what better time to drop a brand new music video. On Wednesday (Sept. 12), the Maryland-founded band unleashed the three-and-a-half minute clip for their latest single, “This is Life.” As explained by vocalist AJ Perdomo, the music video came together after the group’s van was broken into.

“This video was filmed after our van break in. All of our personal belongings and camera gear and footage was taken,” begins Perdomo. “Chris Simms had the idea to make a video documenting the rise up from the ashes, through our UK tour, and our next full US run. You can catch us on tour for the next two months, time to do it all again.”

Check out the full clip for “This is Life” above.

“This is Life” is featured on The Dangerous Summer’s self-titled record. The album was released this past January through Hopeless Records.

We Came As Romans to carry on with Bullet For My Valentine tour

It’s barely been a month since We Came As Romans made the sad announcement that co-vocalist Kyle Pavone had died from a later confirmed accidental drug overdose. While some bands would take time off to figure out what their next steps should be, the surviving members of the outfit announced that they will soldier on with their upcoming tour to honor their fallen bandmate.

On Tuesday (Sept. 11), co-vocalist Dave Stephens posted a video statement on Facebook on behalf of the other band members revealing their decision.

“The last few weeks, Kyle’s family, his fans, his friends and the five of us have been experiencing a very wide range of emotions, and for us, it’s been the most difficult time of our lives. Through this, we’ve been trying to be very honest with each other and open about how we’re feeling and grieving,” Stephen says in the short video.

“So, through all that, we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. We feel like this honors Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would’ve wanted us to do, and us be together on stage, playing music together with our fans.”

For fans who have been questioning whether the band will find someone to fill the void left by Pavone’s death, Stephens reveals that the band will not replace him.

“We will not be replacing Kyle – we’ll be continuing on, the five of us, and honoring his life over the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”

Watch Stephens’ full video below.

We Came As Romans’ tour with Bullet For My Valentine will begin next Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the Pageant in St. Louis. The trek will conclude a month later on Oct. 16 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. The full list of tour dates can be seen here.

Pavone died of an accidental drug overdose in late August at the age of 28. According to TMZ, his girlfriend told cops he had gone into the bathroom at his home for a long time, and when she went to check on him, she found him unconscious, feet away from a used syringe. The police report said the syringe was found on the counter of the bathroom sink. Police say the girlfriend also revealed Kyle had struggled in the past with heroin use.

We Came As Romans released their fifth album, Cold Like War, last October.
