August 7, 2014


Linkin Park
As Linkin Park gets ready to kick off the Carnivores tour on August 8, the band did a conference call with the press and spoke about their pairing with Thirty Seconds To Mars. "We decided to poll our fans to see who they'd like us to tour with, and five or six times in a row I think Thirty Seconds to Mars has either been the most popular band they wanted to see us tour with or #2. I've never seen them out of the top three. So it's been a long time that our fans wanted to see us tour together," singer Chester Bennington told Billboard.com during the conference call. Mike Shinoda also described the Carnivores tour production as "more-video based," incorporating James Jean's artwork for The Hunting Party. "It adapts with the show," Shinoda explained. "I think in the context of a live show it's important to have something that lives and breathes with the show... One of the challenges that I posed to the production team was... if we decided to play something different, if we decided to extend a part, whatever we decide to do, I want the artwork to change with the performance. So it needs to be malleable."

K.Michelle will bring her latest album, Rebellious Soul, to the screen with the premiere of K.Michelle: Rebellious Soul - The Musical. Premiering Tuesday, August 19 on VH1, the dark, cautionary tale is directed by actor Idris Elba. The musical features eight songs from the Rebellious Soul album transformed into a theatrical presentation. Additionally, the soundtrack for K.Michelle: Rebellious Soul – The Musical will be available at all digital music providers on August 18, and the video will be available August 20.

Lady Gaga Instagrammed a photo of herself in the hospital on Wednesday night, but fans need not worry: she apparently got altitude sickness after her show in Denver, but she should be back to normal in no time. Alongside the photo, which was a close-up of Gaga donning an oxygen mask, the singer wrote, "Altitude Sickness is no Joke! #hitThatHospitalSh– #artRaveDenver many true ravers crowd tonight." Gaga is set to continue her artRave tour in Seattle on Friday night, which will be the final U.S. date of the trek before she goes abroad.

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters have announced some dates for a brief fall tour. Kicking off in Port Chester, NY on September 25, the dates wrap up in Los Angeles on October 7. The tour is in support of Plant's new album, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, which will be released September 9 on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. Produced by Plant, the album is his label debut and features 11 new recordings, nine of which are original songs written by Plant with his band, The Sensational Space Shifters.

The Who is asking fans worldwide to dig out rare and lost recordings, forgotten radio and TV performances, fan-shot footage from concerts, bootleg recordings, rare photos and memorabilia that the group can use for their forthcoming 50th anniversary releases. The band will pick the best items for inclusion, and those who submitted them will get two VIP tickets to a show on the upcoming tour. Fans can submit items to the group at
thewho@umusic.com. Meanwhile, The Who will put out a greatest hits collection, The Who Hits 50!, on October 28, and then embark on a Who Hits 50! tour that will take them to the U.K. this fall and North America in 2015.
