January 10, 2014


Imagine Dragons
Imagine Dragons had a massive 2013, but the band is taking their time making the follow-up to Night Visions. Speaking to MTV News, singer Dan Reynolds says they have begun writing new material but are in no hurry to record. "We're about to go to do a full arena tour, and I think the truth is, all of us are writing, so we definitely have a lot of demos, but we really don't want to put a timeline on ourselves. Because the most important thing to us is that we put out an album that we're really happy with," he said. Imagine Dragons' 2014 touring kicks off in Los Angeles on January 23.

In addition to Outkast's reunion at Coachella, the duo will also play the Governor's Ball festival in New York this year. Big Boi announced Outkast's set at Governor's Ball via Twitter yesterday, and hinted there could be more live dates in store. No other acts have been announced for Governor's Ball, which is set for June 6-8 on Randall's Island.

More artists have been announced for concerts surrounding this year's Super Bowl. VH1 will hold six different shows in the New York City area, as the "VH1 Super Bowl Blitz." J. Cole, Janelle Monae, Fall Out Boy, TLC, Goo Goo Dolls and Gavin DeGraw will headline a different venue each night, from January 27 to February 1, and air on VH1 as well.

The 2014 Brit Award nominees have been announced, with David Bowie up for Male British Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. Alt-rockers Bastille and electronic duo Disclosure lead the pack with four nods each, while dance act Rudimental and singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding are up for three awards. Boy band One Direction also has two nominations for the Brit Awards.

The 24th annual Tibet House U.S. Benefit Concert is set for March 11 at Carnegie Hall in New York, with a traditionally eclectic lineup. Already announced for the show are Iggy Pop, New Order, Patti Smith and Joe Walsh of The Eagles. Phillip Glass and Bryce Dessner of The National are among the other acts on board.
