Bon Jovi to End Their Two Year Hiatus in February


On February 1, 2010, Jon Bon Jovi announced that that the band would be taking a two year hiatus once their tour completed in July.

They didn't quite make it two years but, after a good year-and-a-half, Bon Jovi are ready to go back out on the road for what is being called Because We Can - The Tour. They'll open with a string of Canadian dates starting February 13 in Montreal and following with dates in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. U.S. dates will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

The band will be premiering songs from their upcoming album What About Now, due in the spring.

The first dates:

  • 02/13 - Montreal - Bell Centre
  • 02/17 - Toronto - Air Canada Centre
  • 02/20 - Ottawa - Scotiabank Place
  • 04/02 - Calgary - Scotiabank Saddledome
  • 04/03 - Edmonton - Rexall Place
  • 04/05 - Winnipeg - MTS Centre

james blunt is quitting music

James Blunt announces he is quitting the music industry

James Blunt should never have been a part of the music industry in the first place. I know, harsh commentary. If it makes his fans feel any better, he's not the only one...

We'll never have to be subjected to his beige songwriting and voice in the form of new music ever again. Pity "You're Beautiful" cannot be removed from shopping centre playlists universally. Or maybe it can?

The news comes via The Daily Mail to whom Blunt allegedly stated "I haven't got any plans to do more songwriting ( is that what he calls it ?). I have been chilling out since I finished my world tour and I've spent a lot of time in Ibiza, where I have a villa."  The force is strong in this one.....

Excellent, good luck to him and his villa in Ibiza. Condolences to fans. You'll still have the memories, but for the rest of us it's all beer and skittles from here on. Woohoo!

The Daily Mail has been known to exaggerate once or twice in the past. It may just be the fantasy of a Blunt hate group.  I guess the real shame is that he will never have the opportunity to write a decent song and maybe pass it on to someone who can sing. Oh well.

I'll believe it when I don't hear it.....( new music from James Blunt that is..)

Robert Plant To Play Bluesfest

Bluesfest’s Peter Noble has caught his “great white whale”. After years of persevering Robert Plant will play at Bluesfest in 2013.

When I caught up with Peter at BigSound last month he told me he didn’t have Plant yet but they were talking. Robert Plant was confirmed for last year’s event but pulled out before the announcement. Noble has been after him for Bluesfest for years.

“Bringing Robert Plant to Bluesfest is a dream come true, not just for me, but for the thousands of fans who have been standing by patiently all these years!! We have waited together for so long and now it’s gonna happen – I am so delighted and hugely honoured,” Peter said in a statement.

And to use that old line, “but wait there’s more” Bluesfest has a stunning third line-up announcement. You may add to the Plant announcement Madness, Jon Anderson, Status Quo and Roger Hodgson.

“These are artists who are world class and give Bluesfest its icing on the cake, but we are still not done yet. There are still more artists to be added in the upcoming weeks, but for now let’s revel in the wonderment of this 3rd announcement,” he said.

Previously announced artists are
Ben Harper
Iggy & The Stooges
Steve Miller Band
Jimmy Cliff
Chris Isaak
Bonnie Raitt
Robert Cray
Joan Armatrading
Dropkick Murphys

Lucky punters in Melbourne will  be treated to an extra show that will give fans the opportunity to hear the follow up album to "The Blue Album ", Pinkerton, live in full.

The BBC describes Pinkerton thus "Almost 15 years on, it remains a stereo regular, and loved like the day it was delivered, awkwardly and self-consciously, into a world that didn't know what to do with it. And, largely, still doesn't. So give it a home, won't you; it could be your album of the year." – BBC

The performance of Pinkerton in Melbourne will be the final show added to the band's first Australian tour since 1996.
