Dave Matthews Band
Dave Matthews Band will embark on a summer tour that will find the group delivering two sets per evening, performing songs from throughout its career. These Dave Matthews Band shows will wind through numerous configurations - from electric to acoustic, from full-throttle numbers featuring the entire band to more intimate moments featuring small groups of band members - including a stripped-down pairing of Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, performing as an acoustic duo. A variety of guests will join the band throughout the summer. The extensive tour will run from May 16 in Woodlands, TX to September 6 in Irvine, CA.

Howard Stern is celebrating his 60th birthday this month with a special concert by Jon Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler and John Fogerty. The rockers will all perform at "Howard Stern's Birthday Bash," which will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and will air live on SiriusXM on January 31. The party takes place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Other celebs such as David Letterman and comedian Louis C.K. also will take part in the festivities. "It's gonna be something," Stern said on his radio show on Monday. "The list just begins there!"

The lineup for this year's 45th New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has been unveiled, with names such as Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Christina Aguilera, Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Santana, Robin Thicke, Robert Plant, Foster the People, Public Enemy, and The Avett Brothers leading the list. Jazz Fest will take place at the Fair Grounds Race Course on the weekends of April 25-27 and May 1-4. Among the hundreds of Louisiana artists scheduled to appear include Trombone Shorty, Allen Toussaint, Aaron Neville, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, and Better Than Ezra. All festival info is available at www.nojazzfest.com.

Three months after Ciara and Future announced their engagement, the 28-year-old R&B singer has revealed that she is pregnant with her first child. Ciara shared the news on The View on Tuesday (1/14), where she unveiled her "baby bump." Future worked closely with Ciara on her 2013 self-titled album, and co-wrote and co-produced her hit single, "Body Party."

Against Me! fans can check out a full stream of the band's new album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, via NPR Music. The record is now available to stream one week prior to its official release date of Tuesday, January 21.

Next month marks the 40th anniversary of the David Bowie single "Rebel Rebel," and Parlophone Records will mark the occasion by reissuing the song as a limited edition 7" picture disc on March 11. The A-side will feature the original single mix of the song, while the B-side will include a remixed version that was released in North America in May of 1974. Parlophone has spent the past few years celebrating the 40th anniversary of landmark Bowie singles by re-releasing them in a similar fashion. Previous releases include "Starman," "John, I'm Only Dancing," "The Jean Genie," "Drive In Saturday," "Life on Mars" and "Sorrow."
