Beyonce And Jay Z To Bring ‘On The Run’ Tour To Australia?

Word on the street is that Beyoncé and hubby Jay Z will be bringing their On The Run tour to Australia.

It is yet to be officially confirmed by either party, however, after appearing on a Ticketek waiting list on a post which wrote: “Be the first to hear Beyonce and Jay Z coming to Australia – login and register your interest” we are reading this sign as little nudge, nudge from a reliable industry source.

Watsky Announces ‘All You Can Do’ Australian Tour 2014

The tour comes in support of his new album, All You Can Do, which was released earlier this month. Debuting at number one on the US iTunes Hip Hop Chart, as well as number six on the mainstream US iTunes Chart, All You Can Do is a 16-track reflection of Watsky’s journey thus far – covering everything from his relationship with his parents, dealing with a recent illness, and the infamous Vans Warped Tour incident (the rapper broke a woman’s arm and hospitalised another man when he leapt 35ft from lighting rig).

Dream Theater Australian Tour 2014 – Palais Theatre, Melbourne

American prog-metal outfit Dream Theater will return to Aussie shores for a two-date tour, which will see the band play in Sydney and Melbourne this October as part of An Evening With Dream Theater Tour.

The tour marks the band’s first visit Down Under in five years, meaning the five-piece will bring two more studio albums, 2011’s A Dramatic Turn Of Events and 2013′s self-titled album, to Australian fans. Dream Theater’s latest addition, drummer Mike Mangini, will also be joining the band for their short Australian visit.

Interview: Frank Iero Of Frnkiero And The Cellabration

If the name Frank Iero sounds familiar it’s probably due to the fact that he lent his guitar prowess to emo-punk outfit My Chemical Romance for the better part of 12 years.

A major force in the mainstreaming of emo – a band that grew to be synonymous with side fringes, eyeliner and everything black – MCR decided to call it quits in March last year. Frank Iero, however, unable to tame the creative beast within, is now flying solo under the moniker FrnkIero And the Cellabration, with his debut album Stomachaches due out Friday August 29 via Cooking Vinyl Australia.

The 1975 Australian Tour 2015 – Festival Hall, Melbourne

They may have only just left Aussie shores three weeks ago, but UK pop-rock outfit The 1975 has announced that they will return to Australia in January 2015.

Touring across Australia last month as part of Splendour In The Grass Festival, the trendy Brit rockers played four sold-out sideshows. Venues were upgraded, second shows were added, and it was pretty clear that the four-piece are a musical force to be reckoned with.

Review: Hanson At The Enmore Theatre

It’s 1997, and my two sisters and I are watching TV Hits, when three brothers with lustrous locks and angelic voices appear on my television screen. It’s Hanson, and they are singing what will soon be an iconic pop hit of the ‘90s, ‘MMMBop’. We rush into our local Sanity music store and buy their album, Middle Of Nowhere, playing tracks like ‘Where’s The Love’ and ‘Thinking Of You’ religiously on our Discmans, while we argue over which brother (Issac, Taylor or Zac) we will marry…

Soundwave 2015 – Who To Watch Out For On Day One

Six days ago, AJ Maddah unleashed the first Soundwave 2015 lineup unto the world. Then came the stream of status updates on social media, which saw punters divided in criticising or applauding Maddah for what he was able to pull out of his promoter hat.

Featuring big names such as Faith No More, Soundgarden, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, Slash, Fall Out Boy, and many more, the hard and heavy festival is now a spread over two days – to minimise clashes and optimise “dark time.” Kicking off in Adelaide and Melbourne, Soundwave will then move to Sydney and Brisbane the following weekend.

Interview: 360 Talks New Album ‘Utopia’ & Upcoming National Tour

Utopia by definition is an ideal place or state. So, as the title of 360’s third album, the name seems fitting. He crashed and burned after 2011’s double-platinum Falling & Flying, which ended with the Melbourne rapper spending three weeks in rehab late last year. However, like the phoenix, 360 rose from the ashes, releasing his epic follow-up, Utopia, earlier this year, and announcing the biggest national tour of his career this September.

Interview: I Killed The Prom Queen’s Jona Weinhofen talks ‘Beloved’ & ‘The Rise Of Brotality’ Australian Tour

Dull is definitely not a word one would use to describe I Killed The Prom Queen’s career. Spanning over 13 years, the Aussie metalcore heavyweights have seen countless lineup changes, a three-year hiatus in 2008 and several studio albums to their name. Now, in light of the release of their third LP Beloved, the band will return home this September for their mammoth Rise Of Brotality Tour.

Taylor Swift To Reveal New Album Details Via Yahoo Live Stream

Country pop diva Taylor Swift has confirmed that she will hold a Yahoo global web chat early Tuesday (August 19) to “announce some exciting news.”

Although the ‘22’ singer’s lips are currently sealed, we’ll take a stab in the dark and assume that she’s planning to reveal details of her highly anticipated fifth album. As Swift’s previous album Red was released late October two years ago, and she has unleashed a new album every two years since…
