Blink-182 is headed to Las Vegas in a big way. The pop-punk trio has announced a 16-date Vegas residency at the Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort.
"When the Palms asked us to do a residency here in Vegas, we said 'Absolutely!'" says bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus. "Now, we just have to cast our show girls, create our set list -- a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone on stage...The possibilities in Vegas are endless."
The residency, dubbed Kings of the Weekend, launches on May 26 and stretches all the way…
It’s a stellar showing for classic rock acts on the latest Billboard 200 album chart.
Legendary heavy metal band Judas Priest scored their highest-charting album ever with their latest effort, Firepower, coming in at #5. The disc earned 49,000 equivalent album units, with all but 1,000 of those being traditional album sales.
Amazingly, Firepower and 2014's Redeemer of Souls are the band’s only two albums to make the top 10 of the Billboard 200 tally, despite a 40-plus-year career.
Meanwhile, former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne scored his highest-charting disc ever, as well, landing at number three with his new album, American Utopia. In fact, it's the first time Byrne has cracked the top ten, whether it…

As for that next record, Shadows says the direction of any new music…

Beloved in their native Canada, The Tragically Hip is perhaps best…

Australian musicians unite! Empire of the Sun frontman Luke Steele and Daniel Johns of the defunct post-grunge band Silverchair have formed a new band called Dreams. The duo's first single is called "No One Defeats Us," and is available now on digital platforms.
"We wanted to go with something first that said, 'We are here to rip your head off,'" Johns says of the track. "It says lyrically what our goal is. It's a journey into our vision of the future. 'No One Defeats Us’ is a very simple song: it has no chorus, it feels like a mantra."
Following his Oscar-nominated score for the film Phantom Thread, you can hear Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack work again in the upcoming movie You Were Never Really Here, a violent thriller starring Joaquin Phoenix. Greenwood and Radiohead aren't known as a particularly fierce bunch, which begs the question: which member would be the best fighter?
In an article answering fan questions for The Guardian, Greenwood was asked who is the "hardest," or toughest, member of Radiohead, to which he responded, "It's not a very strong field." However, his first guess is guitarist Ed O'Brien.
"Ed's had boxing training -- he…
