July 11, 2014

HBO will air a concert special starring Beyonce and Jay Z, documenting their current On The Run Tour. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network will film the duo's September 12 and 13 dates in Paris. There is no air date yet for the On The Run concert special.

Yahoo and Live Nation are joining forces for a streaming live concert every day, all year long via the new Live Nation Channel on Yahoo Screen. The live concert streams will kick off on July 15 with "A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band" at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Florida. Additional artists confirmed for the new channel include: Usher, Gavin DeGraw, Common, The Neighbourhood, MKTO, The Kooks, Airborne Toxic Event, Three Days Grace, The Fray and many more. The Live Nation Channel on Yahoo Screen will also feature special performances including KISS, John Legend and friends performing the entirety of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On in Hollywood and Justin Timberlake playing a concert in Iceland.


Kesha
In a new essay for Elle UK, Kesha has opened up about her recent trip to rehab. The Pop singer wrote, "Sure, I've written songs about partying, but my dirty little secret is that I'm actually incredibly responsible. I take my music and career very seriously, and certainly didn't land in this situation from partying. But I was cut off from the outside world and I imagined people making up stories at a time when what I really needed was support." She added that "The music industry has set unrealistic expectations for what a body is supposed to look like, and I started becoming overly critical of my own body because of that." Kesha added that "I felt like a liar, telling people to love themselves as they are, while I was being hateful to myself and really hurting my body. I wanted to control things that weren't in my power, but I was controlling the wrong things. I convinced myself that being sick, being skinny was part of my job. It felt safer somehow." She wrote that she felt OK to leave rehab "when I'd gained enough confidence to get on a plane knowing there would be paparazzi at the airport at the other end. I was right - they were there. But this time, when I saw the pictures, I felt OK."

Speaking to the NME, former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way discussed his upcoming solo album. Way says that "The sound of it is rooted in a lot in shoegaze, also Britpop — the whole thing largely feels like a British album," adding, "I was going for a lot of things that were completely new to me. Even the way we attacked the vocals and tried to make them sound was very different from ways that I had ever been recorded." The record does not have a title or release date yet, but Way will play his new solo material next month at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK.

Country-Pop icon Garth Brooks held a press conference on Thursday in Nashville, announcing a new album and world tour. Brooks said his new record will be out just in time for the holiday season via RCA. He also announced his catalog will be available digitally for the first time, however it will only be sold online at his own website. It is expected Brooks will only sell his albums as a whole, not as individual tracks, though the details are expected later this month. Tour dates will be announced soon as well.
