Quick Hits: Capital Cities, Billboard Music Awards, Drake
April 11, 2014

Reverb, in partnership with LL.Bean, is launching its 13th “Campus Consciousness Tour” with Capital Cities headlining. The electro-pop group will be helping to engage students across 14 schools to engage in outdoor activities and take action to protect natural spaces.
    
“It's an honor to be a part of a tour that combines the joy of live music with a positive message of environmental preservation and sustainability,” said Capital Cities’ Sebu Simonian. He added, “As we crisscross the country, we are excited to encounter the boundless energy of college audiences and to be a part of using that excitement and enthusiasm to create change!"
    
The tour's main goal is to promote campus environmental groups and outdoor clubs with the intent to protect natural spaces.
    
“We’re very excited to be such an integral part of this tour. It will be a great way to share the spirit of the great outdoors, while sending a strong message about the importance of preserving our great outdoor spaces in a fun, festive way,” said Kelly Warsky, partnership marketing manager with L.L.Bean. “Capital Cities and REVERB are the ideal partners for helping us spread the word about keeping our air, waters and land clean, now and for generations to come.”


The first set of performers for this the May 18 Billboard Music Awards. The listing of performers includes Imagine Dragons, Luke Bryan, John Legend, OneRepublic, and the previously announced Jason Derulo. The awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday May 18, on ABC at 8pm ET.


In the hunt for feedback from viewers, Drake recently stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to engage with the public on the announcement that he'll be hosting this year's ESPY Awards. Drake disguised himself using a fake beard, toupee, and thick-rimmed glasses. He also asked numerous people about humorous rumors. "Today a story came out Drake apparently got a little too tipsy, and publicly urinated in a Baby Gap," he informs one man. "How do you feel about that?" And to another he asked, "How do you feel about Drake apparently performing a surprise performance at Coachella, and airing his sex tape on the screen?” See the video below:
