Check out the headlines HERE:
- Chicago and The Doobie Brothers have announced a summer tour for this year! The two bands will be touring the U.S., starting in California and ending in Virginia. However, there appears to be no Minnesota dates - yet.
- Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine is pleading with fans to get them nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After the 2016 inductees were announced, Mustaine took to twitter saying that Megadeth's spot is "past time", and that being inducted is one of his bucket list items.
- Speaking of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman says he will not be attending the ceremony in April. Yes is one of the few inductees announced for 2016, along with Journey and Electric Light Orchestra.
- Looks like there’s MORE drama revolving around Ratt and their members. A concert that was scheduled for last week in Michigan got canceled because of the legal “name issues” between Bobby Blotzer and the rest of the gang. Due to the dispute, the venue concluded that the concert had to be cancelled, just a few hours before the doors opened. Night Ranger was also scheduled to play at the sold-out show.
