Josh Groban is Going on Tour!

Josh Groban released his sixth studio album, All That Echoes, back in February of this year, and fans were eagerly anticipating that a tour would soon follow. They haven’t been disappointed. Josh just announced that he is in fact going on tour this year, and that it’s going to be unlike anything he’s ever done before.

Groban’s “In The Round” tour is just that — a tour that places Groban on a revolving stage so that he can interact and be “in the round” with his fans — all of his fans. Or at least those sitting within the first two or three rows of the stage.

“It has been a vision of mine to do a tour in the round for a while now,” Groban said in a press release. “It was just a matter of when was the right time. I have always had moments during the show where I walked through the crowd and interacted with the fans. I felt that now was the time to bring it all together. I can’t wait to bring music from throughout my career, great fun and new experiences to my fans.”

The “In The Round” tour kicks off on October 2 in Boise, Idaho and from there Groban will travel to 22 different cities, wrapping the tour up in Dallas, Texas on November 13. Some of the biggest cities he’ll be visiting are Seattle, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Toronto, Montreal, Pittsburgh, and Tampa, just to name a few. Tickets for Groban’s tour are now on sale, so be sure to get yours today!

What do You Think of Bowie’s “The Next Day” Video?

David Bowie has never been afraid of controversy, and he’s done it once again with his newest video for “The Next Day.” Shortly after being released on YouTube, the video was even pulled, with the site claiming that it violated their terms of service. After Billboard contacted the site for comment however, it’s back up and ready for your viewing. Be forewarned though, this is not one for the kids.

Directing the video was photographer and filmmaker, Floria Sigismondi, who has been involved with Justin Timberlake, and who also directed “The Stars (Are Out Tonight), Bowie’s last video. This one, at first, seems like an odd story of a priest (played by Gary Oldman,) Christ (Bowie,) and a saint (played by Marion Cotillard,) who are praying, handing out cash, and even chastising Bowie as he takes on his godly role. It quickly turns from weird to NSFW though, as Cotillard’s palms start spurting blood and some of the nuns in the bar get sprayed on it as they walk around topless.

Weird. Strange. Different. This is definitely a Bowie video.

After hearing from Billboard and launching an investigation, the video is now back up on YouTube and can be watched here. After it was made available once again, a spokesperson for the social media site released a statement saying,

“With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it’s brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it.”

Are You in Justin Bieber’s New Video?

Justin Bieber loves his fans, and he’s constantly making efforts to show them off and tell them just how much he appreciates them. In his latest video for All Around the World, he features them in clips, standing in lines, screaming at shows, posing for pictures, and otherwise loving their heartthrob. When the cameras are turned off of the fans, you can watch the Biebs in concert, hanging out in his downtime, and lots of behind-the-scenes footage from the tour.

As you would expect from the song’s title, some of the best clips in the video contain video footage from some of the coolest places Justin has seen along the way of the tour. The Egyptian pyramids, the Sydney opera house, the Eiffel Tower, and the Colesseum in Rome are just a few of the most notable global landmarks that you’ll find in the video. Each landmark clip it seems, also has a matching clip of fandom in that city.

Of course Ludacris has a fairly big part, rapping one of the verses and then providing support for the remainder of the song. Fans of the rapper won’t be disappointed, as Ludacris appears on stage with Justin Bieber about halfway through the video, and continues to make appearances throughout.

The video has only been on YouTube for four days and it’s already received over 5 million views. You can check it out here and tell us what you think!

Newly Controversial Brad Paisley Hits North Carolina in May

Country music star Brad Paisley will play a pair of shows in Charlotte, NC and Raleigh, NC on May 2nd and 3rd respectively. Right now, though, he’s dealing with a lot of controversy after the release of his new song called Accidental Racist featuring rapper L.L. Cool J.

The song tells the story of a Southerner who walks into a Starbucks coffee shop wearing a shirt with a confederate flag and proceeds to discuss racial misunderstandings and tensions in the United States predicated around the deep South.

The controversy is gaining speed just ahead of the release of Paisley’s next album, Wheelhouse, which drops this week. Paisley told USA Today he wanted to step out of his comfort zone and create conversation.

“I still think there will be people who misunderstand what I’m saying, but welcome to the Internet,” Paisley told USA Today. “But that is the job of art, to promote discussion.”

In addition to his new songs, Paisley is sure to play a lot of old favorites including his 17 United States Country number one songs. Some favorites over the last five or six years include “Mud on the Tires,” “The World,” “She’s Everything,” “Ticks,” “Online,” “I’m Still a Guy,” “Waitin’ on a Woman,” “Star a Band,” and “Then.”

Some of his most recent number one hits include “Remind Me,” “Old Alabama,” “Anything Like Me,” and “Water.”

Given Paisley’s upbeat style in a lot of his songs, any show is sure to be a lot of fun, but especially at the start of the summer season when concertgoers are ready to cut loose and have a good time.

Throw in a dose of controversy that is sure to keep Paisley in the headlines for some time and these should be much-anticipated shows.

In Charlotte, Paisley will be playing the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on May 2. The next night, he’ll hit the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek in Raleigh.

Don’t miss out on your chance to see one of country music’s biggest stars while he’s a big topic of conversation. Get your tickets now!

Amy Grant to Release First Album in Ten Years

“Baby, baby,” you can believe it! Amy Grant is recording and releasing her 15th studio album, “How Mercy Looks from Here.” It will be the first album released by Grant in the past ten years, and it’s one that Grant says will contain absolutely “zero filler.”

Grant started off her career recording gospel music, but broke out onto the pop scene in 1991 with her album, “Heart in Motion” that contained songs such as “Baby, Baby,” and “Takes a Little Time.” After seeing huge commercial success in the 90s, she returned to gospel music before breaking up with her record label, Interscope/A&M. Since that time she’s done reality shows, as well as making guest appearances on television and at events. Now she’s back to sing about all that she’s been doing since fans last heard from her, and it’s bound to be worth the wait!

Grant first announced on her website that she was releasing a new album on February 15, 2013. It was also at that time that she announced the release date — May 14, 2013.

“A lot of major life changes happened during these past few years,” Grant said when speaking about the upcoming album. “So on this record, there’s zero filler. Every song has a real story behind it.”

Are you excited to hear new music from Amy Grant? Will you be buying her new album when it comes out?

John Mayer is Back, and he’s Going on Tour!

It was mid-2011 that John Mayer announced he had to take a hiatus from music to a granuloma or rather, a growth on his vocal chords. After delaying the release of his album, “Born and Raised,” and cancelling many concerts, it was decided that in October of 2011, rest was no longer enough and Mayer needed surgery. Since that time, he’s kept a very low-profile as he recovers, but 2013 certainly seems to be his year. Promoting the album that was eventually released in 2012, Mayer’s going on nationwide tour this year, and he may be celebrating his music in a way like never before.

“My dreams were in escrow,” he told Billboard in a recent interview. “But when I found out this thing in my throat had receded, the most exciting thing for me was having a second chance at a new life.”

The “Born and Raised” tour will take Mayer to over 40 cities, starting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 6, 2013. From there some of Mayer’s will travel throughout the U.S., with only one Canadian stop in Toronto on August 14, 2013. In September Mayer will make two stops in South America before coming back to the States later in the month. He’ll then spend one more week stopping in Phoenix., and Albuquerque. The tour will officially wrap on October 5 in Los Angeles.

For a full listing of tour dates and venues you can find them on John Mayer tickets page on TicketSupply.com. And in the meantime, get your tickets! After such a long and dramatic hiatus, these ones won’t be along very long!

The Week’s Top 5 Concerts Collectively Gross Over $5.75M

With some of the biggest names in music delighting fans this week, it’s not surprising to see that collectively the top 5 concerts have grossed over $5.75M. It seems that for the week of March 25 fans still “Believe”; want to take in circus acts; and in one case, just want a chance to say good-bye.

(1) George Strait
“The Cowboy Rides Away Tour”
Gross: $1,424,279
Average ticket: $83.61
It was announced at the end of last year that this was to be George Strait’s last tour ever, appropriately named “The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.” Only a couple months in and it’s already hit the highest-grossing tour mark; and for the next couple of years we can expect many more weeks of seeing it in the number one spot.

(2) Cirque du Soleil “Amaluna”
Gross: $1,396,697
Average ticket: $81.41
Leaving Seattle at the end of last week and headed on its way to Calgary, Alberta, “Amaluna” is certainly making a splash. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, this story is about an island of goddesses that are faced with a series of questions and decisions after a group of men wash up on their shores.

(3) Justin Bieber
“Believe”
Gross: $1,085,510
Average ticket: $71.67
Despite some minor health problems recently, Beliebers continue to support Justin as he continues to make his way through North America, something he’s been doing since September of last year. With Carly Rae Jepsen as an opening act, it’s hard to “Believe” that this tour is only the third-grossing tour.

(4) Dave Matthews Band
Dave Matthews Band Tour
Gross: $959,710
Average ticket: $73.36
Not only has this band been on the road for months on their winter tour, they’ve just announced dates for a summer tour in 2013. That’s sure to also see this band making a repeat appearance on the top five highest-grossing concert tours.

(5) The Who
“Quadrophenia and More”
Gross: $872,490
Average ticket: $94.71
The Who could do just about anything and have fans lining  up by the thousands to come see them. But when they announced that they were going on tour to play their entire Quadrophenia album in its entirety, it was guaranteed success.

Beyonce Releases First New Song in Two Years

Beyonce has been in the news a lot lately, first with her Super Bowl halftime show performance that was totally fierce, the announcement of a tour, and then her “Life is but a Dream” documentary that had even Oprah saying that it showed a completely new and vulnerable side to the mega-star. But Beyonce made the news once again on Sunday when she released her first song in two years, “Bow Down/I Been On.” And while everything this star touches typically turns to gold, the song has so far received mixed reviews, and even has some wondering if it’s actually going to appear on her album.

The track is full of aggressive rapping by what is currently an unknown rapper, and a lot of cursing on Beyonce’s part, telling all the “b****es” to “bow down.” Fontana’s Hit-Boy also appears on the track, telling those same people to “bow down.” It’s full of techno pop, hard beats, and Beyonce’s trash talk towards all the women artists and MCs that are simply trying to be like her, yet never will. Sound like Beyonce?

Not if you listen to the majority of her fans. After the track was released to her official Tumblr page on Sunday, fans started saying it didn’t sound at all like “authentic Beyonce” and that the whole tune sounded “very forced.” Many compared the song to the type of music that Rihanna typically releases, and seemed disappointed that after such a long wait for new music from Bey, this is what they got.

MuchMusic is stating that this song is to be “expected on her upcoming fifth album,” yet also admit that the stuttered rhythm and profanity-ridden lyrics will make turning the song into a radio-friendly single a challenge. We’ll have to wait and see on that one, and no one even knows how long, as Beyonce hasn’t given a date on when the album is to be released.

Listen to “Bow Down/I Been On” here, and let us know what you think.

Have You Seen Eric Clapton Live? Get Tickets Before It’s Too Late!

Eric Clapton is the guitar god that will end up outliving us all, but he’s put an expiration date on his touring days — after the next three years. The artist, who’s given us hit after hit such as “Tears in Heaven,” “I Shot the Sherriff,” and “Wonderful Tonight” says that he’s growing tired of life on the road, and he plans to stop at the age of 70. With Clapton currently being 67 years young, that means if you haven’t already seen him or you just want to do it all over again, you’ve only got three years to do it.

“The bit onstage, that’s easy,” Clapton recently told Rolling Stone. “If I could do that around my neighborhood that’d be great. You have guys in Texas that play their circuit, and it keeps them alive. But for me, the struggle is the travel. And the only way you can beat that is by throwing so much money at it that you make a loss. So the idea is I’m taking a leaf out of JJ Cale’s book: When I’m 70, I’ll stop. I won’t stop playing or doing one-offs, but I’ll stop touring I think.”

Clapton went on to tell the magazine that it was the airports that bothered him most, with a specific focus on forgotten pieces of metal, such as a belt that he had left on.

“I just don’t want to do that anymore,” he says.

But a lot can happen in three years and for now, Clapton’s got big plans and they include being out on the road. Starting March 14 he’ll be touring around North America; and then on April 12-13 he’ll be playing at Madison Square Gardens for the Crossroads Guitar Festival. Joining Clapton in the acts are other notable guitarists such as Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and B.B. King, to name just a few.

Bon Jovi Still Touring Strong After 30 Years

Jon Bon Jovi is mixing it up a little this year by touring prior to the release of the band’s new album “What About Now.” The band just finished up a spirited show at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh and will continue to travel the country with shows in most major cities including Canada.

The show is an infusion of new songs as well as the greatest hits and fan favorites from the past. The new songs are carry similar themes to many of Bon Jovi’s hits in that they promote staying strong and “the world is crazy but we can make it.” New tracks that you can expect to hear include “Army of One,” “That’s What the Water Made Me,” “Heroes” and “Amen.”

Hits from the 80’s that we all love and want to hear anytime Bon Jovi is on stage includes “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “It’s My Life,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Bad Medicine” and “I’ll Be There For You” and “Runaway.”

This show isn’t all smoke and pyro either. The set features moving video screens that come and go with the music. It makes for an amazing show and one that you’re sure to remember for years to come.

At almost 51 years old, Bon Jovi still has his looks, his voice and his performance ability. His still bares his soul whether he’s singing the gentle “Amen” or baring it all in “Keep the Faith.” Of course, the experience of seeing Richie Sambora on stage with keyboardist David Bryan and drummer Tico Torres just rounds out the entire show.

TicketSupply.com has your Bon Jovi concert tickets. From Atlanta to Phoenix, you can find a seat to see Bon Jovi no matter where you live.
