Muse
Muse added a handful of U.S. dates to The 2nd Law, which run from September 3 in Charlotte, NC to September 19 in Salt Lake City. Tickets for the new dates go on sale Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. Cage The Elephant will be the opening act.

Selena Gomez spent last week teasing fans with snippets of her new single, "Come & Get It," and over the weekend she released the whole thing a bit earlier than expected. Gomez unleashed the Stargate-produced track on Ryan Seacrest's website on Saturday, two days before it was scheduled to drop, and fans promptly crashed the site while clamoring to obtain the track. "Come & Get It" is the lead single off Gomez's summer album release, and she will perform the song at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on April 14.

There will be a second Made In America festival in Philadelphia this summer, as Jay-Z's event will return August 31 and September 1. Philly.com reports that the lineup will be revealed this Wednesday, April 10 at noon via Spotify. The inaugural Made In America was headlined last year by Jay-Z and Pearl Jam.

Kendrick Lamar will be taking his good kid, m.A.A.d city album on an American and international ride with the good kid, m.A.A.d city World Tour. After his current 30+ date Verge Campus Tour, which ends in mid-May, the good kid, m.A.A.d city World Tour will kick off May 21. The trek spans 16 U.S. dates across the country, plus 30 festivals in more than a dozen European countries and Japan. good kid, m.A.A.d city debuted at #2 on the SoundScan album chart last fall.

This summer will mark the 11th consecutive year that 311 has headlined amphitheaters with their summer Unity Tour, and this time, they will bring along Cypress Hill and G Love & Special Sauce. This year's installment hits amphitheaters nationwide from July 2 in Kansas City, MO to August 4 in Las Vegas. 

Iron Maiden will make a brief return to the U.S. this September, playing seven shows en route to Brazil where they will once again headline at the Rock In Rio festival on September 22. The shows run from September 3 in Raleigh, NC to September 13 in San Bernardino, CA with special guest Megadeth. The San Bernardino show also will include thrash legends Anthrax, Testament, Overkill and Sabaton, making for one big Metal festival.

Legendary producer and engineer Andy Johns recently passed away at age 61. Johns worked on albums with many classic greats like Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, and many more. He was working with guitarist Stacy Blades on an untitled project when the producer was hospitalized. Johns produced albums by Blodwyn Pig ("Ahead Rings Out"), Humble Pie (As Safe As Yesterday Is, Town and Country) and Free (Free, Free Live!, Heartbreaker). Johns' history of engineering is even more impressive, having engineered Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main Street, Goats Head Soup and It's Only Rock 'n' Roll by the Stones. He also worked on Led Zeppelin's II through Physical Graffiti albums, as well as albums by Mott the Hoople and Jethro Tull. After he moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s, he added Van Halen, Joni Michell, Ozzy Osbourne, Cinderella, Eddie Money, Godsmack and many others to the long list of musicians and bands that he worked with.
