April 22, 2014


Lorde
Teenage singer Lorde has been on quite a roll lately, considering the breakout success of her debut album, her performance at Coachella, and the fact that she just performed with Nirvana at their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. However, it seems that all of the activity has caught up with her and she has been ordered to postpone her scheduled tour of Australia due to a chest infection. "I have had to postpone my Australian shows because of a nasty chest infection and general ill health," Lorde wrote on Twitter. "I am so so gutted to have to do this but my parents and my team stepped in telling me I needed a break after being non-stop since the Grammys in January. We will 100% be back for this tour (most likely in November) so don't worry about that. i just need time to get back to full gollum girl fitness before i go out playing shows again." Lorde was slated to play eight dates in six Australian cities, starting April 24 in Melbourne.

Kings Of Leon announced the third leg to their Mechanical Bull Tour, which will hit amphitheaters this summer beginning on July 31 in St. Louis. Joining Kings Of Leon on select dates will be Young The Giant and Kongos. Tickets for the general public go on sale starting Friday, April 25.

Katy Perry has released a funny teaser video called "World's Worst Birthday Party Entertainers" as a primer for her new official video for the song "Birthday." The real "Birthday" clip is coming on April 24, but in the meantime, check out Perry's cast of characters below:




Jack White's second solo album, Lazaretto, now has an official lead single. Though White has already released the album track "High Ball Stepper," the title track is the first official single and the song is available on iTunes now. The 11-track album will be out on June 10 via Third Man Records/Columbia.

Rap duo Outkast is continuing their reunion as a headlining act for this year's BET Experience, taking place in Los Angeles from June 27 Ė 29. Other acts playing the event include Rick Ross, Maxwell, Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz, Jill Scott, A$AP Rocky, K. Michelle, Ty Dolla $ign, and August Alsina. It all leads up to the presentation of the BET Awards, which will be handed out on June 29.
