The New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys ‘NKOTBSB’ tour is already selling out all over the country and fans are going completely nuts. And let’s be honest, why shouldn’t they? When it comes to the numbers, both of these groups are at the top of the pop genre, regardless of how long it’s been since they were “popular”. Because of this renewed interest, the two groups are putting out an album that features five fan picked songs from each group AND a track where the two bands will collaborate on a new song, ‘Don’t Turn Out The Lights’. Also on the album will be the mash-up that NKOTBSB has performed a couple of times, most notably on New Years Eve and at the 2010 AMAs.
Famed director David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Dr., Elephant Man, Twin Peaks) will be directing Duran Duran in an upcoming live stream concert on March 23rd. The concert is the kickoff to the second year of the American Express Unstaged series. In addition to the amazing visual live show that is being planned, fans can submit photos and art which will be showcased on surreal displays throughout the night. The live stream will begin at 10pm EST/7pm PST from the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles, California. To watch it, keep your eyes peeled on Duran Duran’s official YouTube channel.
This concert comes a day after Duran Duran releases their 13th studio album, All You Need Is Now and two years after their last tour. What do you guys think? I’m kinda terrified to watch Hungry Like The Wolf as seen through the eyes of David Lynch. READ MORE
It’s no secret that I think Lady Gaga is horror fan. She calls her fans her “little monsters”, her videos are FULL of horror movie references and her outfits are often meant to shock viewers. Remember her meat dress? Yeah, that was rather…unique? In any case, she released her video for ‘Born This Way‘, which starts off with some pretty interesting birth sequences (queue the goo) before segueing into the standard Gaga dance choreography that we’re used to seeing.
Lest we forget about this awesome tour, I’ve got some tour dates that were announced for the upcoming New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys run that you can check out after the jump. First announced by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, the two groups will play a handful of shows in mid-2011. Tickets go on sale starting next Friday. Here are some statements from the two groups:
It’s been officially announced that New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys will be doing a full tour together. The first performance will be at the American Music Awards, which will be televised Nov. 21st. No tour dates have been released yet, but for more information about the tour, go here. Let’s not forget how awesome Donnie Wahlberg was in the Saw movies as well as Dead Silence.
Bacardi and Maroon 5 hosted a Halloween Party where all sorts of celebrities got together for good times and good music. I’ll tell you what, Adam Levine makes a pretty convincing John McClaine. The rest of the band dressed up as Nikolai Tesla (Jesse Carmichael), Bono (James Valentine) and The Boy With The Red Balloon (Michael Madden). Other guests included Rose McGowan as Marie Antoinette and Austin Nichols and Sophia Bush as Russell Brand and Katy Perry, respectively. You can check out more photos after the jump.
So, it’s practically Halloween, a time of year that I, and I know many of you, love. We get to decorate our yards with gravestones, skeletons, dismembered limbs. We get to dress up as our favorite monster or creature. We get to have horror movie marathons. Basically, it’s the greatest time of the year, hands down. So I figured in the spirit of Bloody-Disgusting Music, why don’t I put together a list of 10 creepy music videos to just add fuel to the Halloween fire that’s burning in you all. This list is in no particular order, I just wanted to share them with you. The first is here and the remaining nine are after the jump. Enjoy!
New York electronic/pop duo Hank & Cupcakes will be embarking on a East Coast tour starting next week. Here’s a quote from the band: ”We can’t wait to get on the road. We’ve been in intense preparations by day, playing our last NYC shows by night – this is a crazy exciting time!,” excitedly admits vocalist/drummer Cupcakes. Her counterpart Hank adds “We love playing outside of NYC and always get inspired and filled with new energies after these intense adventures. Playing shows is the essence of what Hank & Cupcakes are trying to do, which is to party, spread good vibes and connect to people!”
