Check out the headlines HERE:
- Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are coming out with a DOUBLE vinyl box set! This is all in honor of the band celebrating 40 years. The Complete Studio Albums Volume 1 covers 1976-91, and The Complete Studio Albums Volume 2 covers 1994-2014. Both box sets are available for pre-order now on Petty’s official website!
- ZZ Top has announced that they are going on tour this winter, with a few dates in the US of A. Sadly, no dates in Minnesota. (Yet!)
- Brian May of Queen has cancelled all his remaining 2016 plans due to a “persistent sickness”. According to a post on his website, this includes cancelling his annual December candlelight concerts with Kerry Ellis.
- Some members of the Swedish Academy don’t think it’s very nice of Bob Dylan to ignore his Nobel Prize in Literature. One member said it was “impolite and arrogant”, but the Academy has said that that is only the view of that one member, and not the opinion of the entire organization.
