PAUL McCARTNEY JUNE DATES RE-SCHEDULED TO OCTOBER

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on June 9, 2014

LOUISVILLE, KY – (June 9) - Paul McCartney has confirmed that he will, however reluctantly, heed medical advice to rest up just a bit longer to fully recuperate from the virus that forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea.

I’m sorry but it’s going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again. I’m feeling great but taking my docs’ advice to take it easy for just a few more days. Look forward to seeing you all soon.”—Paul McCartney

The Out There world tour will now resume July 5 in Albany, NY, and the June 14-26 shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville have been rescheduled to October.

Tickets for the June 26th show at KFC Yum! Center will been honored for the new date of Tuesday, October 28th.

The Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul’s most recent studio album

NEW, a global hit upon its release last year. The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years–Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)–the show never disappoints. The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul’s shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.

McCartney Recovering After Virus Halts Tour
NEW YORK (AP) — Paul McCartney is on the mend after being treated for a virus that led him to cancel his tour in Japan.

McCartney received treatment at a hospital in Tokyo, publicist Perri Cohen said in a statement Thursday.

The former Beatle is expected to make a complete recovery and will be taking time to rest. McCartney cancelled his entire “Out There Japan Tour 2014″ this week because of his illness.

McCartney was also scheduled to perform at a Seoul stadium on May 28. It would have been his first concert in South Korea.

McCartney, who turns 72 next month, “has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world,” the statement said.

The tour is scheduled to resume next month in the United States. McCartney will play a handful of shows starting June 14 in Lubbock, Texas.

– New Album, Turn Blue, Out May 13 On Nonesuch Records, Streaming Now On iTunes –

– Duo Will Perform on Saturday Night Live May 10 “Fever” Music Video Premieres –

“…the best, most consistently gripping album the Keys have ever made…Turn Blue is as apocalyptic, in its way, as that Clash epic [London Calling]: loaded with risk, distress and payoff.” – Rolling Stone

The Black Keys will embark on an extensive North American tour this fall. Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the tour begins Sept. 5 in Columbus and includes a stop in Louisville, KY at KFC Yum! Center on Wednesday, September 10.

 Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning Tuesday, May 13 at 10:00 a.m. local time to all fans pre-ordering the album at http://www.theblackkeys.com and to Citi® cardmembers in the U.S. through Citi’s Private Pass® Program (www.citiprivatepass.com).

Tickets go on-sale to the general public starting Friday, May 16 at 10:00 a.m. local time at Livenation.com, Ticketmaster.com, the KFC Yum! Center box office and all Ticketmaster locations. Charge by phone at 1.800.745.3000.

 

The tour supports the duo’s highly anticipated new album, Turn Blue, which will be released May 13 on Nonesuch Records and is now streaming exclusively on iTunes. In celebration of the release, the band will return to Saturday Night Live for their third musical guest appearance this Saturday, May 10.

 

Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue comprises 11 new tracks, including the first single, “Fever,” which is currently #1 on AAA radio for the fourth straight week and #2 on Alternative radio. Additionally, the album’s title track recently premiered on Carney’s SiriusXM show, Serious Boredom, and can be heard here. Both songs are available as free instant downloads with album preorders at theblackkeys.com/turnblue; the LP, CD or digital version may also be ordered as part of ticket and T-shirt bundles at the band’s site. The songs are also on sale—alone or as free instant downloads with album preorders—on iTunes.

 

Turn Blue was recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles during the summer of 2013 with additional recording done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI and Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville in early 2014. Of the new album, the band says Turn Blue could refer to:

A: Suffocation

B: Sadness

C: Numbness from extreme cold
D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi

E: All of the above

 

Carney also adds, “We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record—not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either. On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”

 

This is the eighth full-length album from the duo and follows 2011’s critically and commercially acclaimed El Camino, which is now certified RIAA Platinum. Internationally, El Camino is Gold in Belgium, Spain, Italy and Holland; Platinum in Ireland, France and the U.K.; and double Platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The record also resulted in three awards at the 55th annual Grammy Awards—Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album. The band now has a total of six Grammy Awards including three in 2010 for their breakout, RIAA Platinum album, Brothers.

Paul McCartney adds more dates KFC Yum June 26

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on April 26, 2014

PAUL McCARTNEY GETS BACK TO CANDLESTICK PARK & DODGER STADIUM

“OUT THERE” 2014 CALIFORNIA DATES CONFIRMED:

August 10 – Los Angeles, CA – Dodger Stadium

August 14 – San Francisco, CA – Candlestick Park

Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul McCartney’s Out There tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, Paul has now confirmed two more very special shows on the 2014 U.S. Out There tour. 

Currently tearing through Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, with Paul’s return to Japan and debut in Korea set for next month, the Out There 2014 world tour is now confirmed to visit the same pair of U.S. cities where The Beatles played their two very last shows:

* Putting the rumor mill to rest, Paul has confirmed that he will indeed return to San Francisco August 14 to play Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert. This once in a lifetime occasion is sure to be doubly bittersweet as Paul closes the same iconic venue where The Beatles played their final concert date on August 29, 1966. Of Paul’s most recent visit to San Francisco, headlining last year’s Outside Lands festival, the SF Weekly gushed “one of pop music’s original supernovas… let us bask in its incredible warmth for the best part of three hours… the question of whether or not it was a ‘good’ show almost doesn’t apply – Paul McCartney… was good in a way that no other show could be.”

* A few days earlier on August 10, Paul will play Dodger Stadium for the first time since The Beatles’ penultimate live gig on August 28, 1966. The show will be Paul’s first L.A. engagement since the 2010 two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl of which the Los Angeles Times raved “It’s hard to think of much in the pop music world more impressive than a 67-year-old musician holding forth for nearly three hours, outdoors on a chilly March night, while delivering some three dozen songs, the least of which would be a career highlight for almost any other artist.”

The Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career — as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul’s most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release last year.

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years-Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) — the show never disappoints.

The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul’s shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.

2014 got off to an incredible start for Paul as he set a personal career best by winning an incredible five GRAMMY Awards in one night. In the UK he was honored by music bible NME with a special one off award, the “Songwriter’s Songwriter Award” chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.

Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale Monday, May 5 at 10am local time.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, May 1 at 10am through Sunday, May 4 at 10pm.

MÖTLEY CRÜE ANNOUNCES THE FINAL TOUR , To Play KFC YUM! CENTER

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on January 28, 2014

 

KFC YUM! CENTER

OCTOBER 14, 2014

 On Sale Feb 1 at 10am

Louisville, KY (January 28, 2014) – After more than three decades together, iconic rock ‘n roll band MÖTLEY CRÜE announced today The Final Tour and the band’s ultimate retirement. The announcement was solidified when the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of 2015, in front of global media in Los Angeles today. Celebrating the announcement of The Final Tour, the band will perform on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” TONIGHT and will appear on “CBS This Morning” TOMORROW MORNING.

 

The tour will make a stop in Louisville, KY at KFC Yum! Center on Tuesday, October 14 at 7:00pm.

Tickets for the Louisville show, $20.00, $45.00, $75.00 and $125.00 (plus applicable fees) go on sale

to the public beginning 10am on Saturday, February 1 at www.Livenation.com,

www.Ticketmaster.com, the KFC Yum! Center box office and all Ticketmaster outlets. Charge by phone at 800.745.3000.

 

 

 

With over 80 million albums sold, MÖTLEY CRÜE has sold out countless tours across the globe and spawned more than 2,500 MÖTLEY CRÜE branded items sold in over 30 countries. MÖTLEY CRÜE has proven they know how to make a lasting impression and this tour will be no different.  Fans can expect to hear the catalogue of their chart- topping hits and look forward to mind-blowing, unparalleled live production. “When it comes to putting together a new show we always push the envelope and that’s part of Motley Crue’s legacy,” explains Nikki Sixx (bass). “As far as letting on to what we’re doing, that would be like finding out what you’re getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch the Final Tour.”

 

The Final Tour presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation will kick off in North America on July 2nd in Grand Rapids, MI and reach 72 markets before hitting international territories in 2015. To Live Nation, MÖTLEY CRÜE tours are not only box office successes but artistically their shows have set the bar for production and entertainment value. “There’s no arguing that Motley Crue have been and always will be the definitive bad boys of rock and roll,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North America Concerts.  “But behind all those notorious stories is a legendary rock band that has revolutionized heavy metal and created some of the biggest hits in music history. They are a hugely successful global brand and a touring powerhouse. Everyone at Live Nation has a tremendous amount of respect for these hard working and extremely talented gentlemen. The music industry will never have another Motley Crue.”  

 

The Dodge Brothers were a notorious duo, so it seemed only natural to partner with the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. “Whenever I talk to people about Motley Crue, the common thread is how cool and relevant the band remains even after 33 years,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This irreverent ‘staying power’ resonates deeply with the Dodge brand as we turn the corner on our 100 year anniversary. What better way to celebrate the band’s final tour and the 25th anniversary of Kickstart My Heart than to do it together?”

Fans can look forward to Very Special Guest, ALICE COOPER joining MÖTLEY CRÜE for an incredible package – Alice invented the genre and MÖTLEY CRÜE put steroids in it!  “Real hard rock bands are hard to find these days,” said Alice, continuing, “Motley has always gone on stage with one attitude and that’s to blow the audience away.  That’s exactly how we do it.  Putting Motley Crue and Alice Cooper together is going to be just what this summer really NEEDS.  We’re going to go out there and tear it up, and I can’t wait to see Motley on stage.  Motley Crue and Alice Cooper – A match made in… Armageddon?”

 

As documented in the Cessation Of Touring Agreement the band signed at the press conference today, the band will not tour after this Final Tour. Band Attorney, Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law, explains “Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement.”  Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, and Mick Mars will go their separate ways after the lengthy 2-year touring cycle.  Tommy Lee (drums) explains “Everything must come to an end!! We always had a vision of going out with a big fucking bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with 1 or 2 original band members! Our job here is done!!!”  Of the band’s tumultuous history, Mick Mars (guitar) adds “(It has been) more drama than ‘General Hospital’ - it keeps ‘em watchin’ and they keep comin’ back.”  Vocalist, Vince Neil says of the Finality of the tour – “I’ll miss playing with the guys but I won’t quit playing rock and roll!! I feel there are a lot of great opportunities and exciting projects after Motley.”

 

The Final Tour will coincide with the film made from MÖTLEY CRÜE’s NY Times Best-Selling book The Dirt. Jeff Tremaine (Bad Grandpa) has signed on to direct the opus that is set to debut in theaters globally in 2015, coinciding with The Final Tour. The Dirt is not only one of the best selling rock books of all time but also one of the greatest rock books of all time because of its brutal honesty, its unique voice, its multiple perspectives on the same events and its first-person inclusion of all members of the same band. Most rock memoirs are salacious mud-slinging accounts of a single person and MÖTLEY CRÜE was adamant to include the perspectives of all four of its members. Tremaine’s intention is to make, not just a great movie about a band, but a great movie about four misfits who, despite themselves and everyone else, band together to overcome the odds and change the history of Rock & Roll. “The Dirt’ is a movie I’ve wanted to make ever since I read the book in 2002,” says Tremaine. “I relate to the story on so many levels; my whole professional career has been about boys behaving badly, so I have a real connection to the material. It’s awesome to be working with the band at such an exciting time in Motley Crue’s history.”  The film will be produced by the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE, Rick Yorn, Julie Yorn, Erik Olsen and 10th Street Entertainment.

 

 

BIG MACHINE RECORDS, home to Country Superstars such as Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw has teamed up in a joint venture with MÖTLEY RECORDS and ELEVEN SEVEN MUSIC for the summer 2014 release of a Country Music Tribute To MÖTLEY CRÜE. BIG MACHINE founder and CEO, Scott Borchetta, is among the legion of Country Music fans who love MÖTLEY CRÜE.  The country tribute album will show off the band’s quality songwriting with these fresh takes on their classic hit songs.  Among the artists already confirmed to be featured on the country tribute album are Florida Georgia Line and Rascal Flatts. Borchetta says of the collaboration, “I have been a not-so-secret Crue fan from the beginning. When manager Chris Nilsson called with the idea for a tribute album on Big Machine Records it was an immediate ‘yes’ from me!  Our album will highlight just how great the Motley Crue song catalog is. At the end of the day, that’s what will stand the test of time.” 

 

MÖTLEY CRÜE Fan Club members will get the exclusive first crack at tickets and VIP Packages, via a unique code, beginning on Thursday, January 30th starting at 10am local time.  VIP ticket packages will be made available to the general public on Friday, January 31st at 10am local time. 

 

All tickets and packages can be obtained via Ticketmaster.com http://www.ticketmaster.com/Motley-Crue-tickets/artist/910417,LiveNation.com  http://www.livenation.com/artists/41479/motley-crue, or via MotleyVIP.com.

Van Halen Opens Tour at KFC Yum Center

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on February 20, 2012

Van Halen Opens Tour at KFC Yum Center

Van Halen opened their forty year reunion tour  at the KFC Yum Center, in Louisville, KY to support their first album with David Lee Roth  in twenty eight years, ” A Different Kind of Truth”.

Kool and The Gang warmed the packed venue playing an entertaining set from their catalogue of disco mega hits from the eighties. But this night was  not about  disco, fans  dressed in memorabilia from the bands past tours were there to witness the rock legends return to the stage.

As the lights went on, the heavy opening chords of “You Really Got Me” rang out. From the start it was loud and clear, Van Halen was back with all the power of the past. “Running With The Devil”,  followed and erased any doubt that Eddie Van Halen is still one of rock’s greatest guitarist. His powerful sound was filled with lighting fast notes and heavy chords played flawlessly. It is clear to see why he was voted eighth in Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 100 all time guitarist.

Brother and a founding member Alex Van Halen is an outstanding drummer. The bass is now handled by Eddie’s son, Wolfgang, who replaced original bassist , Michael Anthony. It was clear that father and son enjoy performing together.

One question I do have,  Where the keyboards came from on “Jump”? I didn’t see the instrument on stage, if it was a recording the synch was done perfectly.

David Lee Roth can still entertain. His vocals were strong although he stayed away from his memorable screams of the past. His leg kicks are few and far between but his dancing and showmanship doesn’t miss a beat. He  covers the massive stage, including  runway and several risers throughout the show. He even glossed over forgetting the words to the last chorus of ” I’ll Wait” singing, “ I forgot the words bring on the chorus”

It is no secret that the Van Halen’s and Roth have had their issues through the years, it didn’t show on this night. The band seemed to be having fun and interactions between Roth,Wolfgang and Eddie Van ended in smiles and laughter. The band covered the majority of their biggest hits, sprinkled in a few early songs along with four songs from the new album. Even with  “The Cradle Will Rock” and songs from the Sammy Hagar era left out. This show was a classic! Although this was their opening performance, it’s hard to imagine the band getting any tighter!  They played and sang every note  to perfection.

If these guys can hold on to the the energy and their health as the tour progresses it’s one show you don’t want to miss!
