U2, U2 - iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE - Live In Paris erscheint am 10. Juni
U2 - iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE - Live In Paris erscheint am 10. Juni
“U2 erfinden die Hallen-Show neu” Rolling Stone
“U2s Triumph ist, die unvergesslichsten Shows zu produzieren, die die Leute je gesehen haben”The Independent
"Immer aufregend, manchmal verstörend und überwältigend inspirierend – U2  unterstreichen überzeugend wie großartig sie sind.’ - Evening Standard
 „U2s aufsässig ambitionierte, minutiös choreographierte Live Produktion beschämt praktisch jede andere Rockband”  - The Guardian

Am 10. Juni veröffentlichen U2 auf DVD, Blu-ray und als Download ihren Konzertfilm „U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE - Live In Paris“. Der Film zeigt die irische Band während ihrer letzten Hallen-Tournee, als sie im Dezember 2015 für zwei besondere Konzerte in die französische Hauptstadt zurückkehrten. Zu den Highlights auf  „U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE - Live In Paris“ gehören neben der grandiosen Live-Show von Bono, Adam Clayton, The Edge und Larry Mullen Jr. die Gast-Auftritte von Eagles Of Death Metal und Patti Smith. Die Deluxe Version enthält zudem einen ausführlichen Blick hinter die Kulissen, ein Interview mit Show-Regisseur Hamish Hamilton, exklusive Tour Visuals, beschrieben von dem langjährigen Freund der Band, Gavin Friday, Musikvideos, zusätzliche Live-Tracks, die während der Tour aufgenommen wurden und vieles mehr.

Die U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour startete im Mai 2015 in Vancouver und wurde bis heute von über 1.2 Millionen Menschen in 22 Städten in Europa und Nordamerika gesehen. Zur Produktion der Superlative gehört u.a. eine 30 Meter hohe LED Wand, ein 35 Meter langer Steg, der einmal durch die Halle führt sowie ein einzigartiges Soundsystem. Hamish Hamilton, der bereits bei U2s Elevation Tour 2001 mitgearbeitet hat, erzählt über die Show: "Es ist ein technischer Albtraum gepaart mit einer kreativen Achterbahnfahrt. Es gibt viele gute Shows da draußen - es gibt nur sehr wenige die wirklich großartig sind."

Neben dem aktuellen Album „Song Of Innocence“ und den Songs wie „Cedarwood Road“, „Song For Someone“ und „Every Breaking Wave“ performen U2 auch einige ihrer größten Hits wie „Pride (In The Name Of Love)“, „Vertigo“, „Sunday Bloody Sunday“, „Beautiful Day“ und viele mehr.

KID ROCK SET TO PERFORM AT 'CLEVELAND ROCKS 2016' EVENT ON JULY 21ST

KID ROCK SET TO PERFORM AT 'CLEVELAND ROCKS 2016'
EVENT ON JULY 21ST

 
CLEVELAND, Ohio (May 12, 2016) – This July, the eyes of the world will be set upon Cleveland, Ohio – with the Republican National Convention taking place there. Those who will experience history being made that week will get to experience the magic of the city with a historic night of fun and entertainment titled Cleveland Rocks 2016! The extravaganza is produced by Blue Star Productions, LLC in conjunction with the Green Beret Foundation, The Folded Flag Foundation, The Guardians of Heroes Foundation, OH Fallen Heroes, and ST9, with those charities receiving proceeds from the event.

On Thursday, July 21, the week will come to an end for those in attendance, but it ends with a bang! For the evening’s festivities, called “Wheels Up,” Kid Rock - one of the most electrifying musicians in the world - will show off his musical virtuosity performing with his incredible Twisted Brown Trucker Band. The singer, a native of Detroit, has sold a staggering twenty six million albums since breaking onto the scene in the 1990s. Other hit albums in the Kid Rock catalog include Cocky (2001), Rock and Roll Jesus (2007), and Born Free (2010). He has had success on the Pop, Country, and R&B charts with a variety of artists, ranging from Sheryl Crow to Martina McBride to R. Kelly. His most recent work is 2015’s "First Kiss."

A longtime supporter of veterans from all branches of the military, the musical icon says he’s glad to be able to participate in an event that gives back to a group that has given so much to Americans.

Robert Jennings, Executive Producer of Cleveland Rocks 2016, says that he’s excited about the event, which he thinks fans should support – regardless of party affiliation. “I think veterans’ issues are something all Americans should rally around which is why we're working with major artists to carry that message to Cleveland and Philadelphia. Our activities support nationally recognized, small non-profits that work on the ground with active duty service members and their families and the veterans of America's military. We thank artists like Kid Rock who are willing to stand up for vets no matter which way the wind blows, and we're looking forward to spending time with the leaders and grassroots of both parties in Cleveland and Philadelphia.”

The concert will feature gourmet catering, plus an open bar in addition to various VIP enhancements. There will also be daily special event space available to suit along with catered hospitality suite and a premium cigar bar. Beer during the week will be provided by the Ohio Craft Brewers Assn, and Premium Cigar Ass'n Cigar Tent in partnership with Makers Mark.

KID ROCK, LARRY THE CABLE GUY TO JOIN CHARLIE DANIELS' 80TH BIRTHDAY VOLUNTEER JAM ON NOVEMBER 30

KID ROCK, LARRY THE CABLE GUY TO JOIN
CHARLIE DANIELS' 80TH BIRTHDAY VOLUNTEER JAM
ON NOVEMBER 30



Tickets to Charlie Daniels' 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam Taking Place
at Bridgestone Arena Will Go On Sale Friday, May 13

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 12, 2016) – On Nov. 30, 2016, Charlie Daniels will continue to celebrate in a big way! This fall, Charlie will officially be inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame and soon after, all of Nashville will be celebrating his 80th birthday during the 2016 rendition of his historic Birthday Volunteer Jam. In addition to The Charlie Daniels Band, the highly-anticipated 80th Birthday Jam will bring select special guests to Bridgestone Arena, including Kid Rock, comedian Larry the Cable Guy, and three more acts to be announced in the coming months. Tickets for the much anticipated event go on sale to the general public Friday, May 13 at 10:00am CST at all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena Box Office. Ticket prices will start at $25.00.

"This year, I combined two milestones, my 80th birthday and the Volunteer Jam. It's pretty amazing that we're both alive and kicking and still going strong. Ain't it good to be alive and be in Tennessee?" said Charlie Daniels.

After a star-studded 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam last year, this year’s celebration event will feature The Charlie Daniels Band and a select bunch of their favorite musicians and entertainers on stage for an exhilarating event for the ages. Since 1974, Daniels has commissioned his musical friends and peers to come together on a “volunteer” basis to hang out, “jam” together, and entertain crowds in an unconventional, laid-back fashion unknown to any other concert event -- all while dedicating concert proceeds to worthy causes. This year’s event will feature extra special “jam” sessions with some of Charlie’s most prolific friends who want to celebrate the soon-to-be Country Music Hall of Famer, his birthday, and his many accomplishments.

A portion of the proceeds from the night will go to the The Journey Home Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager, David Corlew, to help Veterans of the United States Armed Forces. For more info on The Journey Home Project, please visit: thejourneyhomeproject.org.

Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam is produced by Mike Smardak of Outback Concerts in association with David Corlew & Associates and Webster & Associates.

With a career spanning over 50 years and exceeding 20 million in sales worldwide Charlie Daniels is the quintessential Southerner with a healthy dose of Wild West Cowboy. For decades, he has connected with his millions of fans in the varying genres of music that reflect his steadfast refusal to label his music as anything other than the "Charlie Daniels Band" sound — music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats. Having celebrated multiple GRAMMY® Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, BMI Awards, GMA Dove Awards, CMA Awards, his list of accolades is broad. Six of his albums have been RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum® and he has achieved a platinum-selling single in his iconic fiddle-ridden hit, "Devil Went Down To Georgia." An outspoken American Patriot and strong supporter of the U.S. Military, Daniels' talked-about Volunteer Jam concerts are world-famous musical extravaganzas featuring artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama and others, all on one stage for one purpose – to raise funds for our U.S. Military. His 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam held in 2015 raised over $300,000 for The Journey Home Project, a non-profit veteran’s assistance organization, which he co-founded with his manager, David Corlew. For more information on Charlie Daniels, please visit www.charliedaniels.com.

Kid Rock, a native of Detroit, has sold a staggering twenty six million albums since breaking onto the scene in the 1990s. Other hit albums in the Kid Rock catalog include Cocky (2001), Rock and Roll Jesus (2007), and Born Free (2010). He has had success on the Pop, Country, and R&B charts with a variety of artists, ranging from Sheryl Crow to Martina McBride to R. Kelly. His most recent work is 2015’s "First Kiss."

Larry the Cable Guy is a multiplatinum recording artist, Grammy nominee, Billboard award winner and one of the top comedians in the country. He has his own line of merchandise and continues to sell out theatres and arenas across the United States. He is the spokesman for Prilosec OTC and most recently launched his own comedy channel on SIRIUSXM with Jeff Foxworthy. He will also return as the voice of beloved Mater in Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3, which is currently in production. In addition to all of his professional accomplishments, Larry created the Git-R-Done Foundation, which was named after Larry’s signature catchphrase. With an emphasis on children’s and veterans’ causes, The Git-R-Done Foundation has donated more than 7 million dollars to great organizations such as The Arnold Palmer Hospital, Operation Homefront and Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital.

About The Volunteer Jam:
The Volunteer Jam, a multi genre musical extravaganza is one of Charlie Daniels’ best known accomplishments. The legendary event began in 1974 at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN as a way of celebrating their first hometown sellout concert. The CDB invited numerous musical compadres to stop by “and do some jamming.” Among those who dropped in were members of the Marshall Tucker Band and The Allman Brothers Band. Recordings from this Jam are included on the CDB’s Fire On The Mountain LP, and 100 radio stations aired one-hour tapes of the event. CDB songs at Jam I included “Whiskey,” “Long Haired Country Boy,” “Trudy,” and “The South’s Gonna Do It, (Again).” This was the beginning of the Homecoming concert tradition.

Volunteer Jam II (1975) took place at Murphy Center on the Middle Tennessee State University campus in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The first year’s 2400 revelers and 10,600 of their friends returned for another advance sellout. The evening was documented in “Volunteer Jam,” the first Southern rock motion picture. The aristocracy of Southern rock - The Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts and Chuck Leavell of The Allman Brothers Band, and Dru Lombar of Grinderswitch - “volunteered” with The CDB. Alvin Lee of Ten Years After, Hee Haw regular Roni Stoneman, top ranked sessionmen Jamie Nichol and Karl Himmel, along with Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie and Billy Joe Shaver were also among the performing guests. Taped broadcasts were aired on 120 radio stations. At that time, “The South’s Gonna Do It (Again),” was a hit anthem on FM radio and the CDB was enjoying popularity that would keep on building.

Volunteer Jam III moved to Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium in 1976 where the CDB’s homecoming concert continued annually until 1985. Another advance sellout included mail orders from as far away as New York and California. The rowdy bash attained the stature of a civic event inspiring mayoral and gubernatorial proclamations. Radio coverage doubled the first year’s programmers. More than 250 stations aired two-hour tapes of Volunteer Jam III via King Biscuit Radio Network.

In 1979 at Volunteer Jam V, Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited for the first time since the 1977 plane crash for a tribute to the legendary Skynyrd band.

Volunteer Jam X (1984) marked the Jam debut as an international media event. The CDB and more than 30 guest artists entertained millions around the world via an unprecedented live Voice of America broadcast . The SRO event was later aired as a two-hour TV special, produced by Dick Clark Productions, and syndicated by Multimedia Entertainment. Television personalities Dick Clark, Byron Allen of NBC’s “Real People,” and MTV’s deejay Alan Hunter were on hand.

Daniels, had no limit to the genre of music that was invited to perform at Volunteer Jams and the lineups included rock, country bluegrass, gospel, soul, classical, comedy, and southern rock.

Other memorable moments at Volunteer Jam Municipal Auditorium concerts include performances by Billy Joel, Ted Nugent and Molly Hatchet performing “Mississippi Queen.” Leon Russell, Mickey Gilley, Duane Eddy, Woody Herman, and the Jordanaires made appearances as well as, Vince Gill, the late Nicolette Larson, Dwight Yoakam, the late Papa John Creach, and Willie Nelson singing his classic “Crazy.”

The list goes on. Other historic performances included Soloman Burke, Sea Level, Eddie Rabbit, Poco, the Oak Ridge Boys, B. B. King, Delbert McClinton, Ray Price, ( “For the Good Times,”) Roy Acuff, Amy Grant, John Prine, Bonnie Bramlett, Emmylou Harris, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Carl Perkins. When Little Richard removed his shirt and shoes while performing, the crowd went wild. James Brown brought the house down when he performed “I Feel Good,” along with a medley of his hits. The crowd never knew who would appear next.

Volunteer Jams took place at Starwood Amphitheater in Nashville, TN from 1986 to 1992 and were the subject of documentary tv productions as well as a live appearance on the national broadcast of the Jerry Lewis Telethon. Guest at Starwood Jams included Don Henley and J.D. Souther performing “Desperado and “You’re Only Lonely.”

Volunteer Jam XIII brought back Lynyrd Skynyrd for a 2nd reunion with a paralyzed Allen Collins speaking to the crowd, not long before his passing. Pat Boone performed, and Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander played piano, while Travis Tritt, and Garth Brooks joined CDB on “Drinkin’ My Baby Goodbye.”

Volunteer Jam XVI was the last of the official Vol Jam concerts held on Oct. 28, 1996 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville. The first ever acoustic Volunteer Jam, commemorated Charlie Daniels’ 60th birthday. Joining Charlie for a very special birthday party included David Ball, John Berry, Tracy Byrd, Billy Ray Cyrus, Tracy Lawrence, David Lee Murphy, Victoria Shaw, Jimmy Hall & Lorrie Morgan.

Charlie Daniels’ 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam brought the historic event to its largest stage yet, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. A sold out crowd raised over $300,000 for Charlie’s 501(c)(3) non-profit The Journey Home Project benefitting American Veterans, military members, and their families. The memorable anniversary event featured The Charlie Daniels Band, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Blackberry, Bonnie Bramlett, Eric Church, Terri Clark, Billy Crain, Billy Ray Cyrus, Billy Dean, Colt Ford, The Grascals, Lee Greenwood, Jimmy Hall, The Kentucky Headhunters, Jamey Johnson, Tracy Lawrence, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Montgomery Gentry, , Craig Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Lee Roy Parnell, Jeannie Seely, Michael W. Smith, Natalie Stovall, Travis Tritt, Phil Vassar, Ryan Weaver, Wynonna, and Tucker Yochim among others.

TYLER FARR TO PERFORM FREE CONCERT AT TOOTSIE'S ORCHID LOUNGE

TYLER FARR TO PERFORM FREE CONCERT AT TOOTSIE'S ORCHID LOUNGE 
 
Rooftop of Legendary Music Venue Will Host Singers First Show Since His Throat Surgery Earlier This Year
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 12, 2016)Tyler Farr will make a special appearance at the legendary downtown Broadway bar, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 7:30 PM CST. This free show presented by NRA Country will be Farr’s first since he had to cancel a tour due to having microlaryngeal throat surgery to remove a vocal polyp on his vocal chords in January of this year. Storme Warren of SiriusXM will host the event.

Farr expressed excitement to return to his former employer saying, “I worked at Tootsie’s when I first moved to Nashville. Seems fitting to have my first show be back where it started!”

The power vocalist first became aware of vocal issues while on tour with Jason Aldean last summer – and the problem was identified during a severe bout of bronchitis at the end of 2015.

“This is the last thing I would’ve ever expected,” said the operatically-trained Farr. “I sing hard, and I give it everything I have every night, but I really believed I was putting my training to work. After a #1 song, an awesome tour with Jason and getting engaged, this is not how I thought I was going to be winding up 2015.”

Rather than wait and see, Farr and his medical team opted to remove the polyps and begin vocal rest, followed by aggressive therapy. To maximize recovery and minimize time off the road, the Missouri-born owner of three gold and one platinum single canceled all shows for the next few months.

About Tyler Farr:
Columbia Nashville’s Tyler Farr released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Suffer In Peace, in April 2015 making its debut in the top 5 on the BILLBOARD Top 200 Albums and BILLBOARD Country Albums Charts. Previously with the release of his debut album Redneck Crazy, which released in 2013, Farr landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200 making Farr the only solo male country artist in the last 10 years to have his first two studio albums debut in the top-5 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Tyler’s first single off the newly released Suffer In Peace album, “A Guy Walks into a Bar,” proved to be Farr's third No. 1 hit and is now RIAA Certified GOLD. Farr’s #1, platinum-selling title-track “Redneck Crazy” projected Farr forward to celebrate back-to-back #1 singles, including his first #1 as a songwriter, with his Gold-certified hit “Whiskey in my Water.” Farr’s most recent single at radio, “Better In Boots,” was described by the New York Times as a “muscular love song.” The Missouri native’s dry wit and energetic live show has earned him industry recognition as a 2014 CRS New Faces of Country Radio and 2014 Music Row “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” nominee, as well as rave reviews for his coveted opening slots touring with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley.

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

3-2-1…Die Red Hot Chili Peppers stehen nach fünf Jahren mit ihrem neuen Album in den Startlöchern. “The Getaway” erscheint am 17.06. und ist das sensationelle, elfte Studioalbum der legendären kalifornischen Formation.
Abgemischt von Radioheads Langzeit-Produzenten Nigel Godrich wurde das Album diesmal nicht von Rick Rubin, sondern von Danger Mouse produziert und allein die Bassline der schon Ende letzter Woche enthüllten Vorab-Single “Dark Necessities” lässt so manchen RHCP-Liebhaber in Erinnerungen schwelgen – hier zu hören.
Das Album läutet für die Band eine neu Ära ein: “Es ist neu und anders, aber ohne dabei die guten Teile von uns zu opfern. Es gibt einige Songs, die man so schon von uns kennt, und einige neue”, kommentierte Flea. Im Sommer sind RHCP live bei Rock am Ring zu erleben.

AMIR

Am kommenden Samstag findet in Stockholm das Finale des diesjährigen Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) statt. Als Top-Favorit geht die französische Hoffnung Amir dort mit seinem Song “J’ai cherché” an den Start. Im deutschen ESC-Fan-Forum wurde er bereits auf Platz #1 gewählt.
Die Erfolgsgeschichte des 31-jährigen Franzose nahm vor zwei Jahren in der französischen Ausgabe von “The Voice” ihren Anfang, wo er die Jury mit seiner Cover-Version von Elton Johns “Candle In The Wind” in Staunen versetzte. “J’ai cherché” handelt davon, seine Träume zu verfolgen und entstammt Amirs aktuellem Album “Au Coeur De Moi” – hier ist der Beitrag im Video zu sehen.
Das ESC-Finale wird am 14.05. ab 21:00 Uhr live in der ARD übertragen und vom schwedischen Vorjahresgewinner Måns Zelmerlöw gehostet.

KVELERTAK

Morgen erscheint das neue Album der norwegischen Kvelertak. “Rau, introspektiv und blutrünstig”, lautet das Urteil des deutschen Rolling Stone zum neuen Bollwerk, das zur heißeren Jahreszeit einen kühlen Kopf bewahrt und mit straightem Black-Metal-Punk auftrumpft.
Erstmalig spielten Kverlertak das Album im heimischen Norwegen ein, unter Aufsicht ihres Produzenten Nick Terry (Lindstrøm, Turbonegro, The Libertines). Zur Einstimmung gibt es hier das Video zu “1985” zu sehen.
Im Sommer rocken Kvelertak auch hierzulande live mit Solo-Shows (19.06. Erfurt, HsD // 27.06. Nürnberg, Hirsch // 28.06. Hannover, Musikzentrum) und Festival-Auftritten (18.06. Saarwellingen, Rockcamp 2016 // 24.-26.06. Neuhausen ob Eck, Southside // 24.-26.06. Scheeßel, Hurricane // 29.07. Hamburg, Gruenspan (Weltturbojugendtage) // 29.-30.07. Neuensee bei Lichtenfels, Rock im Wald).

FOY VANCE

Freitag erscheint das neue Album des nordirischen Ed Sheeran-Signings Foy Vance auf Gingerbread Man Records. “Wild Swan” wurde von Jacquire King in Nashville produziert. Als Executive Producer fungierte Elton John, den Foy diesen Sommer – neben eigenen Festival-Shows, u.a. beim Glastonbury – auf “Wonderful Crazy”-Tour supportet.

ADIA VICTORIA

Auf ihrem morgen erscheinenden Debütalbum “Beyond The Bloodhounds” bringt die “unheimlich faszinierende” Adia Victoria, mit ihren “schaudernden Gitarren-Riffs und Texten voll offenherziger Verachtung” (The Village Voice) ihre fest im Blues verankerte musikalische Welt zwischen Rock, Afropunk und Country zum Vorschein.
Der meinungsführende Afropunk-Blog ernannte das Album kürzlich zu einem “frühen Anwärter aufs beste Album des Jahres” – poetische Erzählungen in gotischer Südstaaten-Manier, vorgetragen von einer einzigartigen Singer/Songwriterin, die mit aller Vehemenz unter die Haut geht.
“Ich versuche mich nicht in ein schmeichelndes Licht zu rücken. […] Manchmal bin ich einfach nur hässlich. […] Die zarte Seite ist jedoch ebenso präsent, die möchte, dass sich die Hörer gesehen und verstanden fühlen“, beschreibt sie ihre Musik.

In Folge ihrer restlos ausverkauften Deutschlandtournee im vergangenen Februar, geben die twenty one pilots im Herbst auf ihrer “Emøtiønal Røadshøw”-Welttournee vier weitere Deutschlandkonzerte.

Spätestens seit ihrem 2013er Debütalbum “Vessels” verzeichnet das dynamische Zweigespann einen sagenhaften Aufstieg und katapultierte sich in den USA bereits in der ersten Woche nach Veröffentlichung auf Platz #1. Mit ihrem Hit “Stressed Out” eroberten sie auch in Deutschland Platz #3 der Single-Charts und präsentieren aktuell mit “Ride” den perfekten Sommer-Sound.

Angefangen in den kleinen Clubs, füllen twenty one pilots mit ihrem energischen “Schizophrenic Pop” – kombiniert mit Hiphop, Punk oder Reggae – mittlerweile auch hierzulande die großen Hallen, wo die Leute “das Unerwartbare erwarten sollten“:
31.10. Hamburg, Sporthalle
02.11. Berlin, Columbiahalle
08.11. München, Zenith
09.11. Düsseldorf, Mitsubishi Electric Halle
