April 16, 2014


Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus was hospitalized on Tuesday due to a "severe" allergic reaction to antibiotics, forcing her to postpone a show in Kansas City. Now is looks like she won't be able to play tonight's scheduled concert in St. Louis either. "The hospital is sayin I wont be released today," Miley tweeted. "Therefore I'm not going 2 make it 2 St Louis. I'm so sorry but some things are outta my control." The singer added that she is "miserable" being stuck in the hospital. Miley first started feeling under the weather last week, when she had to pull out of a Charlotte, NC show. It was later revealed that she was suffering from the flu.

Rumors have begun to circulate that Jay Z and Beyonce will hit the road together for a summer stadium tour. Sources tell the New York Post that the married musical duo will soon announce a 20 date tour of North American stadiums, set to kick off in late June.
     Meanwhile, Jay's Made In America festival will go bi-costal in 2014. While the Philadelphia festival is already announced for August 30-31, Jay announced an L.A. edition today for the same weekend. Spin reports that both Made In America festivals will take place over the Labor Day weekend, with lineups to be announced down the road.
Earlier this week, presale tickets went on sale for the event, which has been based in Philly for its first two years

Paul McCartney has added six more shows to his 2014 North American tour, with even more on the way. Sir Paul will play Lubbock, TX on June 14; Dallas on June 16; Atlanta on June 21; Jacksonville on June 22; Nashville on June 25 and Salt Lake City on August 7. The tour is a continuation of his 2013 Out There trek in support of last year's album New.

The Who will embark on a tour later this year to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary. The trek will begin around Christmas in the U.K. before heading to North America in 2015. "It will be a world tour," guitarist Pete Townshend told Billboard. "I'm not crazy about going on the road,  but I'm in good shape and once I start doing it -- and I'm still very good at it -- I'll take some pleasure from it." He added that there could also be a new album from the band if he can route through his "20,000 hours of complete and utter disorganized music... I'll be pulling some songs out of [his long-gestating project] Floss to give to Roger [Daltrey] to see if we've got enough to make an album. It might be a big waste of time, but I'm hoping there will be an album."

This year's Golden Gods Awards will receive a television broadcast on Saturday, May 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on VH1 Classic. The Hard Rock and Metal awards ceremony will tape on April 23 in Los Angeles, where Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose will be presented with the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award. Joan Jett will be the recipient of the Golden God Award, and Zakk Wylde will play during a special musical tribute to the Hard Rock legends who have passed away over the last year. Additional appearances will include Dave Navarro, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Andrew Dice Clay, A Day To Remember, The Pretty Reckless and more.
