Linkin Park

Linkin Park has unveiled more dates for their upcoming tour with Coheed And Cambria. The tour will kick off February 12 in Omaha and is scheduled to run through March 8 in West Valley, Utah. Linkin Park is offering fans the option of purchasing a Digital Souvenir Package with their tickets, which will provide concert-goers with a special post-gig memento: a live audio download of an entire show, concert photos and a digital tour program. In other band news, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda will be on hand to announce the nominations for the 50th Annual Grammy Awards at a press conference on Thursday, December 6 in Los Angeles.

With her husband in jail and awaiting trial, Amy Winehouse has canceled the rest of her tour dates for the year. She had been scheduled to perform a 17-date tour in Britain and Ireland. "The rigors involved in touring and the intense emotional strain that Amy has been under in recent weeks have taken their toll," Winehouse rep Tracey Miller said in a statement. "In the interests of her health and well-being, Amy has been ordered to take complete rest and deal with her health issues." Winehouse added, "I can't give it my all onstage without my Blake. I'm so sorry, but I don't want to do the shows halfheartedly; I love singing. My husband is everything to me, and without him, it's just not the same." Blake Fielder-Civil was arrested earlier this month in connection with an assault case in which he allegedly attempted to bribe a witness. Last week, he was remanded to custody until January 18.

Last week, Trent Reznor announced in a detailed online post that the planned Nine Inch Nails remix Web site had to be delayed due to legal issues. However, remix.nin.com went live yesterday, a week after it was originally expected. Reznor simply writes on NIN.com, "Sometimes you just have to say...'f**k it.' The remix site is UP! Have fun."

Usher and wife Tameka Foster welcomed a baby boy into the world on Monday night in Atlanta. The baby weighed 7 pounds and 9 ounces and has been named Usher Raymond V, according to MTV News. "We are so happy and proud of our beautiful son," said Usher. "What a blessing!"


Foo Fighters

Another slew of 2008 Foo Fighters tour dates have been announced, including six shows in Australia in late April and early May. Their North American tour adds 10 more dates, including a headlining show at Madison Square Garden on February 19.

The Police reunion will roll on in 2008, with shows announced in January, February and June in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Hawaii and Europe. The Police will headline the Isle of Wight festival in the U.K. on June 15. A live DVD is expected to be released sometime in the spring.

Richard Patrick has announced that he is working on a new Filter album, after having most recently released the debut from Rock supergroup Army of Anyone. Patrick writes online that he hopes to have the album out in the spring. It would be the first Filter record since 2002.

The Black Crowes will release Warpaint, their first new studio record since 2001, on their own Silver Arrow Records on March 4, 2008.

Interpol have released a live EP simply titled Interpol Live, exclusively through thinkindie.com. The six tracks were recorded live in London on July 2. The band is currently on the road in Europe.

The day before Thanksgiving, thieves broke into Drowning Pool’s rehearsal space in Dallas and stole thousands of dollars worth of equipment. Texas news station CBS 11 aired footage from a surveillance video that shows the robbers in the act and the video is also posted at cbs11tv.com. Drowning Pool is asking fans to check out the clip and if anyone recognizes the men, please contact the Dallas Police Department at 877-373-8477. Meanwhile, Drowning Pool is currently rehearsing for an upcoming tour in early 2008.

Red was involved in a serious car accident yesterday, but luckily no serious injuries were reported. However, the band’s van and trailer suffered serious damage. Red was less than 20 miles from Nashville on the way home from a show in South Carolina.

Motley Crue singer Vince Neil had been slated to perform the National Anthem before the Steelers/Dolphins Monday Night Football game. However, the rocker's performance was pulled due to lightning before the game. The Steelers have apologized for the lack of the traditional Anthem.

An indie rock tribute to Madonna, titled Through The Wilderness - A Tribute To Madonna, was released last week. Some proceeds from the record will go to the Material Girl's Raising Malawi Organization.
