Bad Bunny Announces 2022 US Tour Details 

19th April 2021 | Category: Concerts

Bad Bunny has announced a 2022 tour, “El Último Tour del Mundo”, named after his 2020 album of the same name. This was his third solo studio album and fourth overall, released on November 27, 2020, by Rimas Entertainment, only nine months after the release of his previous record “YHLQMDLG”, which achieved both commercial success and critical acclaim.

Comprising sixteen tracks, it is primarily a Latin trap and reggaeton album infused with a variety of rock music styles, and features guest appearances from Jhay Cortez, Rosalía and Abra. The album’s title refers to how Bad Bunny imagined what his last concert tour would look like, as he imagined his final tour in the year 2032. The album was written and recorded during the COVID-19 quarantine and is a departure from Bad Bunny’s aggressive reggaetón sound. It became the first all-Spanish-language album to reach number one on the US Billboard 200.

Starting on February 9, Bad Bunny will stop in Denver, Houston, Dallas, San Diego, Los Angeles, Inglewood, Portland, Seattle, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Newark , Brooklyn, Boston, Washington DC, Orlando, and more, with the tour wrapping up in Miami on April 1. 

The tour announcement came after his WrestleMania 37 bout, where he went up against The Miz and John Morrison in a tag-team match with Damian Priest. ESPN called it “one of, if not the, most impressive showings by a celebrity in the ring,” writing:

“Bad Bunny may well be done with the WWE after Saturday night, but after his performance he would certainly be welcomed back with open arms. If WWE can find the right moment, it would be silly not to bring him back. Priest looked great and got a great showcase in his first WrestleMania match, too.”

Julien Baker Plots 2022 UK and European Tour

15th April 2021 | Category: Concerts

Julien Baker has announced a UK and European tour for 2022. The US artist will tour on these shores next year in support of her February-released third solo album ‘Little Oblivions’.

Baker has announced details of her 2021 and 2022 tour plans, with dates planned in North America from September this year through to November.

She’ll then head to Europe in April 2022 for a number of shows across the continent, before playing a series of gigs in the UK and Ireland in May 2022. Some of the countries she will visit include The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, and more.

Katie Malco will be opening all the North American shows, with Thao as support on some and Dehd on others, while Ratboys will be joining her in Europe.

Baker recently performed a livestream show from Nashville, her hometown, playing both older material as well as new album ‘Little Oblivions’. The album came out in February last year. 

“It was just useful to separate my identity from being a performer, and to return to music as something that I did just because I am a musician and because I like to play instruments, instead of something that was [associated] with my whole being and my outlook on the world,” Baker stated.

“In the year over which I made this record, I had to unlearn the idea of recovery being linear, or quantifiable, or something that you did out of principle, that was just a moral achievement.

“With my previous two records, the idea I had was a little bit more idealistic,” she added. “And for my own sanity, I chose to apply this narrative to all the obstacles and struggles and pain in my life, to help me assign meaning to pain… you know, what human beings have been trying to do since the dawn of time!”

Lionel Richie’s Moves UK and Irish Tour Dates to 2022

14th April 2021 | Category: Concerts

Lionel Richie has rescheduled his UK and Irish tour dates to 2022. 

The ‘Hello’ tour was originally set to take place in 2020, before being rescheduled to this summer. Now, a third set of dates have been announced due to continued COVID-19 restrictions.

“I was originally scheduled to bring my ‘Hello’ Tour to the UK and Europe in the summer of 2020, but for the health and safety of all, with the world in lockdown, the live music industry was forced to reschedule their 2020 tour dates,” Richie wrote in a statement.

“With the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, keeping everyone’s health and safety in mind, subsequent rulings and restrictions across the UK and Europe have meant the inevitable postponements of shows and the rescheduling of festivals at which I was scheduled to appear this summer.”

These are Lionel Richie’s rescheduled UK and Irish tour dates for 2022: 

June

2nd – Cardiff, Castle

4th – Dublin, St Anne’s Park

5th – Belfast, Ormeau Park

12th – Nottingham, Victoria Embankment

14th – St Austell, Eden Project

Before the pandemic, there was a European tour planned to piggyback off the singer’s successful Las Vegas residency. Currently, Richie is a judge on Season 4 of American Idol, alongside Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.

The legendary singer doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone he shared his thoughts on retirement.

“They’re gonna have to carry me out, babe. Someone asked me years ago, “When do you plan on retiring?” And I said, “From what?” I’ve never had a job. People who work want to retire. I’m still the 19-year-old kid hanging out with the Commodores right down the road. I must admit the travel has gotten a lot better. But the fun and the adventure is still the same. People say, “But you play and sing the same thing.” No, no, I never did 2020 before. I did 2019, but I’ve never done 2020 and then I’m looking forward to 2021 and 2022 and 2023. The whole thing is a giant play period.”

Rammstein Postpone European Stadium Tour to 2022

13th April 2021 | Category: Concerts

Rammstein have been forced to postpone their European stadium tour. This is the second time that rescheduling has happened. But the legendary German band hopes to play all over their home continent in summer 2022.

With the release of the “Deutschland” and their highly successful Untitled album, the industrial metallers were poised for world domination. Though Rammstein’s North American tour dates are still scheduled for 2021, European audiences will have to wait another year to use their concert tickets.

“The band and everyone involved are very disappointed about this. Given the lack of planning reliability for holding events of this size, this step is unavoidable. The concerts are rescheduled to 2022,” Rammstein wrote.

“Unfortunately, some minor changes had to be made and the show in Belfast will be canceled entirely. Tickets for Belfast will be refunded, all other tickets remain valid! The band is using the time off to continue working on new songs. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!”

Keyyboardist Christian ​‘Flake’ Lorenz revealed that Rammstein’s recorded a new album during lockdown:

​“The fact that we couldn’t perform live increased our creativity. We had more time to think of new things and less distraction. As a result, we recorded a record that we hadn’t planned on.” So we should get to hear a ton of new material live the next time the band are in town…”

He continued to give more detail on the record, saying its subjects ranged from “daily experience” to “world events”. “Our topic is basically people’s madness and that is not much different in coronavirus times than in normal times,” Lorenz explained.

“So Donald Trump was also very present last year, you could also see many traits and from people, in general, how they behaved in lockdown. So the sources of inspiration are actually always there. Most of the things you deal with ultimately take place in your own head anyway. Only small bumps come from outside and enough comes through when the streets are only half as full.”

The Killers Say New Album is “Finished” and “Coming This Year”

13th April 2021 | Category: Concerts

The Killers have confirmed that they are almost done working on their new album. The follow-up to 2020’s acclaimed ‘Imploding The Mirage‘ is “coming this year”.

In a fan Q&A on Instagram Live, the Las Vegas indie rockers have shed some light on when to expect the album.

“I mean it’s finished, yeah. We’re basically in the mastering phase,” said frontman Brendon Flowers. “It will come out this year. We were hoping for an early summer release, but the vinyl manufacturing companies are all inundated with the artists who held their albums back because of COVID. Now they’re all trying to get their albums out and are making this push. We want to release everything simultaneously, so we’re running into a wall.”

He continued: “It will be [released] this year, and it is finished.”

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. added: “It gives us time to make tweaks. It’s good and it’s different. I want to explore talking about the record, but we were told not to let the cat out of the bag too much.”

The announcement comes after The Killers recently broke a UK chart record with their ‘Hot Fuss’ breakthrough single ‘Mr Brightside’, having spent 260 non-consecutive weeks in the top 100 of the UK singles chart since its re-release in 2004 – and having remained firmly in the top 100 for the last five years.

The Killers will embark on their rescheduled UK and Ireland stadium tour in summer 2022. They will be joined by special guests Manic Street Preachers.

The band had initially been set out to hit the road in summer 2020, before those dates were delayed to this year and set to kick off in May 2021. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and with mass outdoor gatherings currently not set to return in the UK until June 21, the gigs have now been rescheduled until next summer – with an extra show added in Falkirk.
