Lollapalooza, the Chicago-based festival that grew out of the US alternative rock scene, on Thursday announced an expansion to Europe with a first edition next year in Berlin. The move comes amid rapid growth in the world's music festivals and marks the fourth international edition for Lollapalooza, which also has versions in Argentina, Brazil and Chile. Lollapalooza's founder Perry Farrell, the lead singer of Jane's Addiction, said that he had long wanted to bring the festival to Europe and pointed to Berlin's reputation as a hub for up-and-coming artists. "Berlin's energy, vibrant art, fashion and music scenes are a mirror reflection of what Lollapalooza is all about and I can't wait to share in this cultural exchange," Farrell said in a statement.
I hope you've stocked up on vino, because Cougar Town's farewell tour is about to begin. And to kick it off, the Cul-de-Sac Crew has written a literal swan song and released a new music video that reveals when the sixth and final season will debut. The super catchy "One Last Pour" is performed by star Josh Hopkins and almost guaranteed to get stuck in your head. Plus, as a bonus for longtime fans of the wine-soaked comedy, it recalls tons of great inside jokes from previous seasons (see: finger guns, Penny Can) and even squeezes in a jab at former network ABC for canceling the series before its time. My only complaint? Notably absent from most of the video is Brian Van Holt (a.k.a. Bobby Cobb), who is leaving the series after the Season 6 premiere. Perhaps his impending departure has to do with a certain mystery man on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Anyway, hit play to check it out! Pssst for those of you who didn't watch, Cougar Town's final season debuts Tuesday, January 6 on TBS.
Luke Bryan was named Wednesday the Country Music Association entertainer of the year, the first time the award has gone to the star known for his alcohol-infused ballads. While the Georgia-born singer took home the most prestigious prize at the awards in Nashville, the biggest medal haul went to Miranda Lambert, whose "Platinum" won album of the year and who scored the top single with "Automatic." For entertainer of the year, Bryan beat out a crowd that included Lambert, her husband and fellow country giant Blake Shelton, and 62-year-old legend George Strait, who took home the top prize the previous year. "Drink A Beer," a song off Bryan's latest album, touches on the loss as he recounts watching the sunset and savoring a brew by himself as he once would have done with his siblings.
By Tim Ghianni NASHVILLE Tenn. (Reuters) - Singer Miranda Lambert won four Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday, and Luke Bryan took home the top honor as entertainer of the year as U.S. politics and the absence of Taylor Swift played supporting roles in the televised ceremony. Lambert, 30, who led all nominees with nine nods, earned her record fifth female vocalist of the year award. "I don't know what to say. I can't believe I'm standing here. I can't believe this is my life," an emotional Lambert said accepting the award she has won five consecutive years. ...
The Savannah Music Festival, an annual collection of performances that strives to cross genres, announced Wednesday that it would expand into opera for its 2015 season. The festival said that it would stage two one-act operas by Puccini -- "Suor Angelica" and "Gianni Schicchi" -- featuring the Savannah Philharmonic during the March 19-April 4 event in the southern US state of Georgia. The festival's reputation has been enhanced by acclaimed British violinist Daniel Hope, who has served as associate artistic director since 2004.
Beyonce on Tuesday announced an expanded boxed-set of her multimillion-selling self-titled album as a new study ranked her as the past year's top-earning woman in music. After rumors that she would drop another surprise album, the singer said that a platinum edition of "Beyonce," with two CDs and two DVDs, would feature two new songs, four new remixes with star collaborators and a concert video. The edition -- which goes on sale on November 24 ahead of the holiday shopping season -- also includes the full album "Beyonce," which she released unexpectedly in December 2013 on iTunes with no prior publicity. The announcement will temper speculation that Beyonce is planning another surprise album of entirely new material.
Its first inhabitant was Miro District, a new venture from Watermark owner Jerry Brown and his Hospitality Development Group. It eventually moved out of the space to 12 South and closed in October of 2012, making way for Taqueria del Sol. Then Music City Tippler opened its doors last August.
Beyonce is the highest paid woman in music in 2014, with estimated earnings of $115 million, more than double what she pulled in last year, Forbes magazine said on Tuesday. The huge sum, most of which was from her world tour, propelled Beyonce, 33, from fourth place last year and put her firmly ahead of pop star Taylor Swift, 24, with $64 million, who jumped up one spot from last year to No. 2. "Beyonce played 95 shows during our scoring period, bringing in an average of $2.4 million per city," said Forbes, citing data from the Pollstar trade magazine. The R&B singer's self-titled album released last December and endorsement deals pushed her earnings up further assuring her the top spot.
The shop is getting off to an even rougher start than the first Williamsburg Starbucks. The second Williamsburg Starbucks opened yesterday and its doing what it can to blend into the neighborhood, in its own very Starbucks-y way. One visitor told DNAinfo: "It's somehow uglier to me than if they constructed a run-of-the-mill Starbucks." Starbucks is trying out a variation of this model in a few markets.
NEW YORK (AP) — Spotify stopped streaming Taylor Swift's music at her request Monday, setting up a business struggle between the leading purveyor of a new music distribution system and the industry's most popular artist.
Singer Taylor Swift, whose new album is likely to have the biggest opening week of sales in a dozen years, on Monday pulled her entire catalog from online music streaming service Spotify. Singers and bands, including Beyonce and Coldplay, in the past have delayed releasing albums to Spotify to give retailers an exclusive window to sell their albums, but Swift has taken the unusual action of pulling all of her music from the service. Swift and her record label, Big Machine, requested last week that the singer's music be taken down, Spotify spokesman Graham James said.
