Mastodon and Opeth Join Forces For 2021 US Tour 

20th September 2021 | Category: Concerts

Mastodon and Opeth have just announced a massive 2021 U.S. tour with Zeal & Ardor supporting.

Mastodon will be touring in support of their upcoming album Hushed & Grim, which will hit shelves right in time for Halloween on October 29. Zeal & Ardor have been steadily releasing singles for their self-titled third studio album, which is due out Feb. 11, 2022. Opeth’s most recent release was the lauded In Cauda Venenum back in 2019.

The three-week bill will begin Nov. 14 at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Florida and finish up Dec. 5 in Denver, Colorado. 

Hushed and Grim, is Mastodon’s ninth studio album, which the band described as their “most ambitious body of work to date”.

The new double-disc record – which is the Atlanta metallers’ first since 2017’s Emperor of Sand – is louded by guitarist Bill Kelliher to be their “biggest-sounding” LP yet. 

“We all just kind of [went into it] with open minds,” he said in an interview earlier this year. “The result is amazing. It’s the fullest, biggest-sounding record we’ve done so far.” 

According to the press release, the 15-tracks and two discs album will be a notably experimental record.  It sees the band “surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog threaded together by the innately expressive musical interplay of these four virtuosic musicians”.

Produced by Tool, Rush, and Muse collaborator David Bottrill, the record is supposedly “steeped in one of the darkest periods of [Mastodon’s] career as each member [experienced] personal grief”.

Dua Lipa Announces 2022 Tour With Special Guests Megan Thee Stallion And Caroline Polachek

17th September 2021 | Category: Concerts

Dua Lipa has announced details of a 2022 ‘Future Nostalgia’ US tour, featuring support acts including Megan Thee Stallion and Caroline Polachek.

The dates, on the back of Dua’s hugely successful second album from 2020, begin in early February before running through until the start of April.

Megan Thee Stallion will support the singer at dates in Denver, Tulsa and Phoenix in mid-March, while Polachek will support on every date and Lolo Zouaï will play most of the dates.

“I’m so thrilled to tour again and see my angels in person! How amazing that we all get to dance and celebrate together once again,” Dua said in a statement.

“When I was writing ‘Future Nostalgia’ I imagined the songs being played in clubs on nights out with your mates. I’m so excited that this fantasy is finally coming true. I can’t wait to experience these songs with you together live!”

Dua Lipa released the acclaimed ‘Future Nostalgia’ in March 2020, while an accompanying remix album with The Blessed Madonna followed that August.

Since then, the singer was revealed as the most-played UK artist of last year. The music licensing company PPL revealed their ‘Most Played Charts’ for 2020, with Lipa ranking first in their list of the most-played artists in the UK.

A UK and European tour for ‘Future Nostalgia’ is set to follow the US run, beginning in mid-April and running until June.

The singer was originally set to hit the road in the UK in May 2020 before the dates were pushed back to January 2021 as the coronavirus hit last spring.

Last October, the dates were rescheduled once again to September and October this year, but with restrictions continuing in the UK the shows will now take place in spring of 2022.

BADBADNOTGOOD Share New Single ‘Beside April’ and US Tour Dates

16th September 2021 | Category: Concerts

BADBADNOTGOOD have released another track from their new album called Talk Memory.

“There was really special energy around this video,” says director Camille Summers-Valli. “The band wanted to do something with horses and equestrians. That’s where this begun. Funnily enough, I am petrified of horses. But it felt like a good way to overcome my fears. Subconsciously through a process of reading, finding references and discussing with my team, I started to piece together the puzzle of what this video could be. We shot this in Georgia; where the casting was incredible. The horse also was wonderful. So strong and majestic, we just wanted to do this beautiful creature justice. The magic aligned, so many great hard working people pulled this video together.”

“Beside April” follows “Sending Signals” which will be featured on the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, Talk Memory. Speaking of the new LP, the band explain how “It took a year or two of just living life to get to the place where the creative process was exciting again and once we actually went in to the studio it was the most concise recording and writing process we’ve ever had. We hope that the improvised studio performances bring the listener closer to our live experience.”

BADBADNOTGOOD have also just announced a North American tour for 2022, that includes stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Boston, NYC, DC, Philly, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas and Houston.

Elton John to Headline BST Hyde Park in 2022 for Final London Date on Farewell Tour

15th September 2021 | Category: Concerts

Elton John will headline BST Hyde Park in 2022 as part of his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour – his final ever series of live shows. John will be performing on June 24 2022 on what could be his final ever London tour date.

Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG said: “BST Hyde Park has always stood for the world’s biggest and most loved artists bringing not just a performance but a truly one-off and memorable event.

“Elton John has provided the soundtrack to the lives of so many of us and to know that his last tour is coming to Hyde Park, possibly the last time many of us will ever see him play, is one of the most important and ‘must see’ nights of BST Hyde park ever.”

This September, John announced the release of a new collaboration album called The Lockdown Sessions. The diverse 16-track collection – 10 of which are brand new and previously unreleased – celebrates togetherness and sees John collaborating with a wide range of artists.

Some of those involve include Lil Nas X, Dua Lipa, Eddie Vedder, Miley Cyrus, Gorillaz, Young Thug, Andrew Watt, Brandi Carlile, Stevie Wonder, and more. The album also features John’s recently released collaboration with Dua Lipa, ‘Cold Heart’.

Recorded over the last 18 months, work on the singer’s 32nd studio album – which is due to arrive on October 22 – began after he was forced to pause his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album,” John said in a statement. “But, as the pandemic went on, one‐off projects kept cropping up.”

“Some of the recording sessions had to be done remotely, via Zoom, which I’d obviously never done before,” John said of how he recorded the project. “Some of the sessions were recorded under very stringent safety regulations: working with another artist, but separated by glass screens.

“But all the tracks I worked on were really interesting and diverse, stuff that was completely different to anything I’m known for, stuff that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory.”

Kacey Musgraves Unveils “Star-Crossed” Tour

2nd September 2021 | Category: Concerts

Kacey Musgraves has announced a string of North American tour dates for 2022 in support of her forthcoming album ‘star-crossed’.

The musician will make her return with the follow-up to Golden Hour next week (September 10).

Next January, Musgraves will then hit the road in the US and Canada, kicking off the tour in St Paul, Minnesota on January 19 and continuing on to a final show in LA on February 20. She will be supported by King Princess and MUNA across all dates.

Last week (August 23), Musgraves announced the release of her new album star-crossed and an accompanying film of the same name. The record will be “structured as a modern-day tragedy in three acts” and “tells an extremely personal journey of heartache and healing”, according to a press release.

She also shared the title track from the record on the same day and followed it up on Friday (August 27) with new single ‘justified’. The video for the track saw the musician take a road trip as she sang about how “healing doesn’t happen in a straight line”.

Musgraves’ new album follows 2018’s Golden Hour — a critical and commercial triumph that won the Grammy for Album of the Year. “star-crossed” also appears to be heavily informed by Musgraves’ 2020 divorce from singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly. 

Musgraves will also perform ‘star-crossed at the VMAs joining fellow artists Lil Nas X, Lorde, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Chlöe, Olivia Rodrigo, Machine Gun Kelly, Twenty One Pilots, and Doja Cat who will also host the show.

The ticket info for her upcoming shows is available here.
