Today in Music News 5.12.17
Every weekday we take a look at what’s happening in music news. Check out the headlines for today, here!
- KISS is coming to Grand Casino Hinckley on Saturday, July 15th. And to help get you pumped to see ’em, Gene Simmons has confirmed that there has been “some writing” towards a new album! However, don’t expect to see it anytime soon, because Simmons still seems nonchalant about releasing another LP. If you wanna get tickets to go check them out this summer, get them on our Concert Calendar.
- A few weeks ago people were speculating to see a Led Zeppelin reunion at Desert Trip this year. Well, those hopes and dreams are not obsolete – we just got word that there will not be a second Desert Trip at all. Last year’s Trip included The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who. The cheapest ticket you could buy for 2016 was about $200 and it sold out in three hours.
- If you are among the many who are celebrating 50 years since Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, you’re gonna wanna tune into PBS coming up in June. The hour long special will be BBC’s documentary showing behind the scenes footage of making the legendary Beatles album. The PBS debut will be June 3rd!
- Also making a special feature on PBS is Paul Simon! His live show at London Hard Rock Calling Festival in 2012 is being made into a new LP, along with the actual footage being shown on PBS to help promote the album. The Concert in Hyde Park will come out June 9th, with the premier on PBS before then.
