April 5, 2013

Black Sabbath has revealed the artwork and a song snippet from their new album, 13, which is due on June 11. As previously reported, the album is the first from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler together since 1978, and it features the drumming of Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk, after a contract dispute with original drummer Bill Ward forced him to leave the lineup. Check out the snippet below:




Milwaukee's massive Summerfest has revealed more names in this year's lineup. New names include Imagine Dragons, Billy Idol, Diplo, LL Cool J, Dropkick Murphys, Alice Cooper, The Avett Brothers, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, MGMT, Silversun Pickups, and many more. They join previously announced acts Violent Femmes, fun., John Mayer, Tom Petty, Pitbull, NKOTB, Boys II Men, Rush and The Eagles. The 11-day festival will be held June 26-July 7.

Paul McCartney has added a few more dates to his upcoming Out There tour. Sir Paul will visit Austin on May 22, Tulsa on May 29, and Washington D.C. on July 12. As previously revealed, he'll also rock Boston's Fenway Park on July 9, as well as this year's Bonnaroo festival, which takes place June 13-16 in Manchester, TN.

The Rolling Stones have also added more dates to their "50 And Counting" 2013 tour, as second shows have been announced for Chicago (May 31) and Toronto (June 6).

The Jonas Brothers have announced their first national tour in three years. The tour comes in support of their upcoming album, which is also their first in several years. Dates are currently scheduled from July 10 in Chicago to August 16 in Los Angeles.

The Black Crowes have unveiled a summer leg of their upcoming tour. It kicks off July 19 in Nashville and wraps on August 15 in Rochester Hills, MI. The band is already on the road throughout the spring and they're hitting festivals like Beale Street, Bottle Rock and the Hangout Music Festival.

Nick Carter says the Backstreet Boys are "90 percent done" with a new album, which is due out later this year. Carter said in an interview that the group has recorded a song with longtime collaborator Max Martin, who produced their hits "I Want It That Way," "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)" and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)." "It's a smash, a beautiful song," Carter stated, according to Billboard.com.

It looks like the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival will be staying put in Indio, CA for the long haul. The city council of Indio has approved a proposal that will keep the festival there through the year 2030, according to the Los Angeles Times. The deal also will allow Coachella promoters Goldenvoice to stage as many as five events each year in Indio. In addition to the two weekends of Coachella and the Country festival Stagecoach, Goldenvoice will have the freedom to put on two fall events as well.

Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Bruce Springsteen have been tapped to headline Brazil's Rock In Rio festival in September. They join other big names like Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Florence and the Machine, Phillip Phillips, Muse and Iron Maiden. The festival happens in Rio de Janeiro over two weekends, from September 13-15 and then September 19-22.

Cheap Trick is planning a pair of shows to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their concerts in Tokyo that spawned the classic live album At Budokan. The band will play the exact April 28, 1978 Budokan set on April 28 at the John Varvatos Bowery boutique in New York City (the former home of CBGB), and fans will be able to watch the show online via www.Livestream.com. Then on April 30, the band will perform the exact April 30, 1978 Budokan set at the El Rey in Los Angeles, and that show will air live nationally on AXS TV.
