Blink-182 Announces New Leg Of Their California Tour

The dynamic band we’ve all grown up around is back again this year for another tour that is, well, sure to sell out like it did last summer. Yes, Blink-182 is back once again for a tour to promote their latest album — but let’s be honest, we’ll probably be seeing some of their older stuff in the mix as well, because nostalgia. Alongside the band will be smaller acts to open, The Naked And Famous, and Wavves. While this isn’t as big of an opener as last year, this does present a bigger opportunity for more core Blink fans to hit the show, rather than a majority of them looking for just the opening acts.  

Last year, Blink toured the US in a number of shows that featured the likes of A Day To Remember, and All Time Low. Certainly bands that carry more of a popular name than the recent callouts, but that doesn’t mean fans won’t line up to hear the newest tunes.

Although California wasn’t like the older albums (especially with the absence of a certain singer), it rang true to classic Blink sound and featured the same breakdowns as older ones. In addition to their spring stint in the US, the band will also be heading overseas to the UK starting in July.

Check out some of the dates below and let us know if you’re going to attend one of these shows!

Beyonce Is Pregnant AGAIN

It looks like queen Bey has not one, but TWO more buns in the oven. As of yesterday, Beyonce revealed to her followers on Instagram that she’s expecting not one, but two new additions to her life. This does come as somewhat of a surprise to many, as it was revealed earlier in the year that Beyonce would be headlining Coachella, to which the ones who booked her had no idea what was happening.

Following a superb year with her album Lemonade, it’s only fitting that the couple gets back into the spotlight. With much speculation on the life inside of the dynamite duo, we don’t know much else except that right now, all seems to be well between the two, hence the children on the way.

Last night, Jay-Z was spotted in LA leaving a recording studio when the paparazzi approached him for a comment. With short and sweet answers, Jay gave his thoughts on the situation, and seemed eager to meet his newer children, whenever it is they may arrive.

Sources confirm that Goldenvoice who is responsible for the event planning, had no idea that Beyonce was pregnant, and will now source another person to replace her, but there is no rush, as the event was already sold out before headliners were even announced.

In recent humor, it seems Blue Ivy isn’t so thrilled about her new siblings entering, as they might steal the limelight away from her.

Queen Set to Tour In 2017

Don’t stop them now! Alongside Adam Lambert, Queen is preparing for a North American Tour later this year. While they were forced to cut shows off of their list last year due to Brian May’s illness, they’re revamping for the new year and promise to put on performances for all ages, in a number of great locations across the US. Fronted by Adam Lambert, their shows won’t be exactly the same, but he does a pretty good job at replicating the sounds made by former great Freddie Mercury.

The shows begin in Phoenix Arizona on June 23rd, and conclude in Houston on August 5th. For someone looking to see this iconic band one more time, it would be a wise decision to grab your tickets before they’re all gone. Classic songs are sure to be performed, as well as all of the cult-classic tunes that only the hardcore listeners know about.

Shortly after the scare that Brian May went through, Lambert was quick to announce that he was in great spirits, which was the original teaser to this upcoming tour. Check out some of the dates below and let us know if you’ll be attending — you can also catch Queen on a few of our radio stations below!

Mary Tyler Moore Hospitalized at 80

As more news unfolds, it has not been looking good for famed actress Mary Tyler Moore today, who according to reports, is said to be in grave condition. At 80 years old, Moore currently rests in a Connecticut hospital, as we await more information on what the issue currently is. In the past, Moore has battled with diabetes, and it has been said that the condition has severely deteriorated, and that family members are rushing to the hospital.

In 1966, Moore was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, which was also her last year playing Laura Petrie on the Dick Van Dyke Show. Later in her famed career, Moore went on to play Mary Richards on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, and was typically open in her discussions pertaining to discussing the disease and her battle.

In 2004, it was revealed that Moore went through a number of laser surgeries to treat her vision, which was best described as splotchiness and dimming. Again, she went for brain surgery in 2011, which there is not too much information on at this time.

As this story develops, keep it posted to this page and our Facebook page for the latest information regarding Mary Tyler Moore and her condition.

UPDATE: 2:45PM EST. It is with a heavy heart that we must report on the passing of Mary Tyler Moore. She was 80 years old.

The string of tours is set to begin in July in Florida at the Hard Rock, and will end just one month later in Texas.Lauper however, will be touring with Blondie for a number of shows which take place in April.

U2’s Joshua Tree Tour

This will for sure be a record year for U2 fans, as the anniversary of one of the most coveted albums will see a tour to celebrate it’s 30th birthday. The Joshua Tree tour is set to be one of the biggest shows of the year, with new dates being added shortly. For fans who missed out on the tour that took place in 2015, this is the chance to get back into the swing of memorable concerts to remember for decades to come. Quite frankly, the numbers for this tour are staggering, and it’s only just the beginning.

Within 24 hours, U2 managed to sell 1.1 million tickets for the upcoming tour. For concertgoers, they’ll have to wait until at least mid-May before any guitar riffs and vocals even hit the stage, however that didn’t stop many. For the U.S. crowd, they’ll wait even longer, as the tour officially kicks off in Vancouver.

To complement the abundance of shows that will be occurring during the span of the tour, the band will be making their first headlining appearance at Bonnaroo Festival, as well as a number of other shows. They’ll hit the Rose Bowl in May which was a show due to the initial sellout. They’ll see a number of states and countries, which include a hometown show in Dublin, performances in Paris, Rome, and Amsterdam.

Even their manager Guy Oseary stated that he’s a fan first, and a manager second. With the success of the band, there’s no reason not to be such a big fan of a huge act. He also stated that if he could, they would go everywhere to perform shows.

The Joshua Tree is U2’s fifth studio album and home to some of their most popular songs ever recorded. This will for sure be one of the most popular tours they’ve ever put on, and will certainly go into the record books.
