Report: Madonna “Sticky and Sweet” tour listings unleashed…

Here it is, straight from her official website:

https://tickets.madonna.com/

As predicted, Madonna think she is too big and famous for Albany and Saratoga, but you gotta give credit for Neil Diamond willing to play Albany though.

Madonna will be playing two dates at Madison Square Garden so that’s the closest that New Yorkers will try to get a chance to see her live in person.

Would I go see her live? Probably not. I do like Madonna a lot but not enough to go see her in concert or start buying her albums. I do enjoy listening to her music ocassionally though.

As a fan of Billy Idol I’ll probably wind up getting this. This guy rules! This guy was one of the coolest rock stars back in those days in the 80’s. Gotta love his singing voice and the white spiked hair. Billy continues to release new albums occasionally but he is not a mainstream artist anymore like he once was.

Report: Beck releasing new album this summer…

Singer/songwriter Beck Hansen, or better known as “Beck” is releasing another new album this summer. No release date has been confirmed yet but this album is produced by some guy named Danger Mouse. The album title is not yet revealed and the album will include only 10 tracks. Beck has been made famous for his popular albums like “Mellowgold” and “Odelay”. In his younger days before his career, Beck started off as a folk singer playing small cafes and coffeehouses until he got big and famous. Now he plays music in all genres from acoustic folk, hip/hop, dance, rock, etc.

Beck’s latest album was “The Information” which was released back in 2006.

Billboard reports:

Not sure what genre Beck is heading to in this album because Beck does a different genre every album he does, kind of like Neil Young. I don’t care what genre Beck does, I love all the music he does. I have several of Beck’s albums in my CD collection and he is one of my favorite artists believe it or not.

Report: Madonna announces world tour…

Announced today, Madonna revealed she will go on a full world tour this summer, playing a slew of 50-60 shows. This tour is of course produced and sponsored by Live Nation. Her first concert of the tour will begin Aug. 23rd in Cardiff, Wales. Her tour listings will be unleashed to the public later today.

Billboard reports:

http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003800612

Will Madonna come to Albany at Times Union Center or Saratoga Springs at SPAC this summer? Who knows. But it’s pretty unlikely. The closest she’ll probably perform to us is no where other than NYC, she’ll probably get a gig at Madison Square Garden if anything. A Madonna tour is good news though.

Report: Amy Winehouse turns herself in for possesion of crack/cocaine…

Amy Winehouse turned herself into London police today due to a video she was being taped smoking crack/cocaine at a house party that the Sun newspaper released to the internet for everyone to see. The police became curious and wanted to investigate themselves.

MTV reports:

http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1587016/20080507/winehouse_amy.jhtml

If she dies of a drug overdose this year, I won’t feel upset or devastated about it. There’s been so many celebrities and famous musicians dying of drug overdoses that I really don’t care anymore. It’s gonna happen to her at some point if she doesn’t cut the shit.

I’d love to see new music by her but I’m afraid we ain’t gonna see a new album by her in a long time. She’s gonna keep doing drugs no matter how many times she turns herself into rehab.

Keep it up Amy, or you’ll be singing in heaven with Ike Turner before you know it.
