The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones have called off their seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand following the apparent suicide of Mick Jagger's girlfriend, L'Wren Scott. The band said in a statement that they "thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement. The Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date." Jagger also posted his own message on his website, which reads: "I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received."

NBC's The Voice has recruited Coldplay frontman Chris Martin as a "universal advisor" to all four coaches on the show for a rebooted round of the singing competition. The remaining contestants will be paired off to perform the same song separately in a sudden-death match, which begins on March 31. Martin is set to appear on the March 31, April 1 and April 7 episodes of The Voice

Just before the kick off of the massive Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, OH, musicians and friends will roast Slipknot/Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor. The Monster Energy "Roast On The Range" is set for Thursday, May 15 at LC Pavilion in Columbus. Honoring and lampooning Taylor will be musicians and comedians including Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson, Craig Gass, Brian Posehn, Slipknot percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan, Scott Ian, and Roastmaster Sebastian Bach. "Honestly, I don't know what to say. I'm a little nervous, a little excited, and of course a little gassy. But that could just be the excitement," says Taylor. "I'm really looking forward to it, but knowing my friends and the possibilities for who could be a part of this, I have no idea what I'm getting into!"

After releasing their Flappy Bird parody game called Fall Out Bird, Fall Out Boy will release a sequel to the game. "Fall Out Bird 2.0 coming soon with new gameplay, new hazards + much more," the band wrote on Facebook. "Look out for it on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Amazon App Store. Get your flappy on." In addition to "Classic" mode, version 2.0 will also offer Storm! mode, though the band has not revealed exactly what that entails. 

After a seven-year absence, Wu-Tang Clan has returned with "Keep Watch," the lead single off their upcoming sixth album, A Better Tomorrow. The new track features verses from Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna and GZA, and the group released it unexpectedly on Tuesday night via the Wu Tang Music Group website. A Better Tomorrow, which coincides with Wu-Tang's 20th anniversary, is reportedly almost ready to ship, according to MTV News.
