Norwegian-born singer-songwriter Liv Austen announces that she will be releasing tracks ‘Detour’ and ‘Whole Heart’ from her debut album A Moment of Your Time. The tracks will be available from Friday May 17th as a double A-side limited edition 7” vinyl, sold exclusively on Liv’s website and at live performances, and available across download and streaming services.
The double A-side is the next stepping-stone in a string of successes from the country-pop star. Liv released her debut album A Moment of Your Time last October, which received a 5* review from Maverick magazine and has since had over half a million streams on Spotify. She also supported American country star Sarah Darling on her UK tour in March.
‘Detour’ and ‘Whole Heart’ were recorded at NUA Studios and Wandsworth Studios. They were produced in London by Jon Wright and co-produced by Liv and LOFT.
‘Detour’ and ‘Whole Heart’ were placed together on A Moment of Your Time, reflecting the key part they play in Liv’s story. The two songs were both written by Liv; they openly and honestly describe the heartbreak of being written out of someone else’s story (‘Detour’) and then finding new love and fearing that the same will happen again (‘Whole Heart’).
Liv said:
“Detour and Whole Heart are very special songs to me because they came completely from a place of raw honesty – my mask is totally off in both of them. It’s fascinating to me how vulnerability and strength go hand in hand as much as they do; when I opened up and wrote about something so personal and painful, I felt more empowered than ever!”

On 7 June, A&M/UMe is set to release Janet Jackson’s iconic mega platinum-selling third album Control on single vinyl in two different colour options: black and translucent red. This will be the first time Control has been reissued on vinyl since the album’s initial release on 4 February 1986, and comes in advance of her hotly anticipated performances at Glastonbury Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival.

Fans who attend Janet’s newly announced Las Vegas residency Metamorphosis, opening at the Park Theater at Park MGM, will be able to purchase the album at the residency’s store alongside other unmissable merch. Fans can also pre-order the album HERE.

Over the course of its relentlessly catchy and danceable 42 minutes, Control instantly established Jackson, along with her co-writers/producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, as perennial pop and R&B innovators. The three of them continued to experiment and break new ground together on a number of subsequent best-selling releases, including 1989’s Rhythm Nation 1814 and 1993’s janet. Control is internationally recognised as a singular fusion of musical styles including rhythm and blues, funk, pop, soul, disco, and modern synthesised percussion. Control also solidified the fact that Janet Jackson had truly arrived as a liberated and noteworthy artist, one who ultimately emerged as a global superstar and a model for independent women the world over.

Since its debut, Control has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Certified Platinum in the UK and 5x Platinum in the United States, the album included four UK Top 20 singles: “What Have You Done for Me Lately”, “Nasty”, “When I Think Of You” and “Let’s Wait Awhile”. In the States, the album made Billboard chart history for having the longest continuous run on the Hot 100 with singles from one album, ultimately tallying a remarkable 65 consecutive weeks.

Ms. Jackson is also gearing up for what promises to be a busy year ahead. Not only was she recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019, but her Las Vegas Residency, evocatively dubbed Metamorphosis, begins in May and is currently scheduled to run for 15 performances in total through August.

Janet Jackson’s Control is a career-defining statement from a singular artist, one who did it her way to handily prove that a visionary album with many hot, nasty grooves is quite worthy of aural revisitation on high-grade vinyl.

The Hollywood Vampires – return with new music from their explosive second album, “Rise.” Rock and roll royalty Joe Perry, Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp and shock rock icon Alice Cooper join forces once again for the unmissable rock album of 2019.

Seconds into the opening track “I Want My Now,” it’s clear this supergroup has created something special – the chemistry between the individuals is unmistakeable when they come together on stage or in the recording studio.  Forget the star-studded line-up’s individual reputations, “Rise” is some of the purest, unapologetic and most enjoyable rock and roll of the year, made by masters of the craft and true fans of the form.

Unlike their 2015 debut record, the new album “Rise” consists mainly of original material, written by the band. There are however, in the spirit of the Vampires’ original mission, three covers of songs originally written and recorded by some fellow rockers who died far too young: an intimate and intense version of David Bowie’s “Heroes”,  beautifully performed by Johnny Depp; the late Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died,” and Johnny Thunder’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory,” sung by Joe Perry. Raucous rock anthems like “The Boogieman Surprise” and “Who’s Laughing Now” (the first single from the new album), capture the natural, raw, celebratory attitude of Hollywood Vampires displayed in their rowdy shows around the world.  But the album shows off their range as well with tracks like “We Gotta Rise” – a tongue-in-cheek politics song in the the tradition of Alice’s “Elected” – to the psychedelic gothic epic of “Mr. Spider.” 

“‘Rise’ is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of.  I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album.  Each of us; Joe, Johnny, Tommy and myself have written songs on this album.  What is different though is that I didn’t try to change any songs to be more “Alice-like.”  Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool.  I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.” – Alice Cooper

“’Rise’ came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of. I can’t wait to perform some of these tunes live for our fans.” – Joe Perry

earMUSIC, the global independent rock label of Edel Germany GmbH, is proud to announce the worldwide signing of Hollywood Vampires. Following the release of Alice Cooper’s 2017 studio album “Paranormal” on earMUSIC, his best chart-performing work in decades, the label is proud to welcome the band to their family.



Produced by Tommy Henriksen and the Hollywood Vampires, “Rise” will be released on June 21st, 2019 on earMUSIC as CD Digipak2LP+Download and Digital


The Hollywood Vampires who previously performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Rock In Rio and the 2016 Grammy Awards in addition to hugely successful U.S. and EU/UK tours last year, will embark on a seven-date U.S. West Coast tour in May

Bang Bang Romeo release lyric video for ‘Cemetery’

Bang Bang Romeo release lyric video for ‘Cemetery’

Bang Bang Romeo release lyric video for ‘Cemetery’ 


Yorkshire’s hotly tipped trio Bang Bang Romeo have released the lyric video for latest track ‘Cemetery’.

The single was released physically on Saturday 13th April as part of Record Store Day. The band also performed a mini-tour on the day performing at four different venues. 

Commenting on the day Bang Bang Romeo said:
“The whole day was a vibe. Driving to the venue and seeing people with records in their bags they’d just purchased, turning up to the stores guitar-in-hand and seeing them packed to the rafters was truly heart warming – it was so great to see record shops full with people there to support their local stores. We’re so grateful to the fans for selling out our debut physical release in record stores across the country!” 

Bang Bang Romeo visited four record stores throughout the day playing live sets at four different stores, Record Junkee in Sheffield, Tallbird in Chesterfield, Jumbo in Leeds and Jacaranda in Liverpool.

‘Cemetery’ was written with music shopping in mind, an ode to record stores and finding your place within a music scene, the lyrics capture that excitement of going into a record store:
‘Finally found a place where I feel a part of something more ….in your arms where I found The Smiths & The Flaming Lips’ 

The visuals for the video and single artwork include a long list of British Independent record stores, including some of the bands personal favourites; Leeds’ own Jumbo and Crash Records and Doncaster’s Track Records.

Bang Bang Romeo are expected release their debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide To The Galaxy’ later this year via Eleven Seven Label Group. They tour stadiums across the UK and Europe supporting Brits winner P!nk in June.

“My wish is that the healing power of Art reaches as many beings as possible. I infused my work with positive magical intention that I hope people can feel and keep with them, making their day brighter, whether it’s beautifying and vibrationally elevating their space with a painting or feeling amazing wearing a scarf, it’s all about positive energy.”

Nathalie Dufresne-Smith, one of the owners of the hotel and wife of Iron Maiden’s Adrian Smith comments:

Barbra Streisand Special Guests Announced!

Year after year, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park brings the greatest artists to the stage in Hyde Park. This year, a true icon, pioneer and one of the most important artists of the last half-century will make her BST Hyde Park debut – Barbra Streisand. As a European exclusive, she will be sharing songs old and new for her first concert in this country for 6 years.

Joining Barbra Streisand at this incredibly special show are two legends in their own right: Bryan Ferry and Kris Kristofferson

The frontman for one of Britain’s most influential bands, Roxy Music, brought Bryan Ferry prominence as one of Britain’s most distinctive music artists, but also carved out a hugely successful solo career that continues in typically sophisticated manner to this day.  This weekend, he reunited with his Roxy Music bandmates to perform at their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.  At Hyde Park, he will be armed with iconic solo hits ‘Let’s Stick Together’ and ‘Slave To Love’, as well as Roxy classics ‘Ladytron’, ‘Avalon’ and ‘Love Is The Drug’, along with that one-off voice.

Kris Kristofferson is a country musician with an unbelievable history; he excelled at Oxford University and in the US Army before pursuing his passion as a songwriter. His songs ‘Me and Bobby McGee’, ‘Help Me Make It Through the Night’ and ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down’, all chart-topping hits, helped redefine country songwriting. His talents as a musician sparked the interest of Hollywood, leading him to flourish as an award-winning actor. Heralded as an artist’s artist, the three-time Grammy winner has recorded 29 albums, including three with pals Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings as part of the Highwaymen. In 1977, Kristofferson co-starred alongside Streisand in “A Star Is Born” which went on to win numerous awards including 5 Golden Globes for Best Actress (Streisand), Best Actor (Kristofferson), Best Film, Best Original Song and Best Original Score. Also, Streisand became the first female composer to win a best song Oscar for ‘Evergreen’ from the film.

She has had Number 1 albums in each of the last six decades – the greatest longevity for any solo recording artist with 11 US Number 1 albums, 6 in the UK and is simply one of the best loved and most decorated artists in any medium alive today. Now one of the world’s biggest stars will light up Hyde Park to bring the first sensational weekend to a close.

Morrissey has announced another single is to come from his anticipated first-ever covers album ‘California Son’.

‘Wedding Bell Blues’ is a frustrated love song about waiting for a proposal from a lover called Bill. Very fitting then that Morrissey’s rendition features additional vocals from Greenday frontman Billie Joe Armstong.

The song was originally written and performed by Laura Nyro in 1966 and made famous by R&B group 5th Dimension in 1969.

‘Wedding Bell Blues’ received a premiere this morning on Ken Bruce’s BBC Radio 2 show.  

It will be released physically on the 10th May as a 7” yellow vinyl single with a brand new original Morrissey track as the B-side.

‘Brow of my Beloved’ was recorded in Rome and is produced by Joe Chiccarelli who also produced the whole of ‘California Son’.

The artwork for the single features Fabian Forte in a shot from 1964 film ‘Ride The Wild Surf’.

‘Wedding Bell Blues’ comes from new album ‘California Son’ which will be released on 24th May. It will be released via Morrissey’s label Etienne; an imprint of BMG, the track list consists of a diverse variety of tracks from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s hand picked by Morrissey himself. ‘California Son’ has been produced by Joe Chiccarelli and is formed of 12 brand new cover tracks.

All Points East have announced a stellar batch of special guests joining the line up on Sunday 2nd June – the final day of the 2019 festival, on which acclaimed folk project Bon Iver will bring proceedings to a memorable end for their biggest ever show.

Joining Sunday’s bill is Ezra Furman, a rock’n’roll-flavoured singer-songwriter from Chicago. Ezra’s rich instrumentation and swooning melodies are straight out of the golden era of American pop, but his androgynous, sexually fluid identity is far from traditional. His latest album Transatlantic Exodus was released last year, and since then he’s provided the soundtrack for (and appeared in) the hit Netflix show Sex Education

RY X is an Australian musician who writes and produces spectral, hushed songs simultaneously barely there and emotionally overwhelming. Like fellow All Points East acts James Blake and Bon Iver, he combines influence from minimal electronic music with the confessional singer-songwriter tradition. His 2016 track ‘Berlin’ was memorably covered by Sam Smith in BBC Radio One’s Live Lounge, and his debut album Unfurl arrived earlier this year.

The indie-folk alias of Alabama-born Matthew Houck, Phosphorescent has built up a cult following for the string of albums he’s released since 2003. A lot of critical love has been accrued along the way, with his albums and songs consistently cropping up in the year-end best-of lists of publications like Pitchfork and Stylus. After an extended sabbatical following 2013’s Muchacho, he returned with the introspective, personal C’est La Vie in 2018.

Frustrated with a musical career that was barely getting off the ground, Charlie Cunningham moved to Spain to study flamenco guitar for two years – a decision that subsequently paid off in spades, as anyone clued up on his austere, atmospheric music will attest. His debut album Lines (2017) gained significant exposure, and recent singles hint at more new material coming soon.

These acts will join the iconic headliner Bon Iver. Since the the cabin-in-the-woods isolation of 2007’s debut LP For Emma, Forever Ago, Bon Iver have established themselves as one of the most ambitious, creative and genre-defying bands around, with two Grammy Awards and several BRIT nominations to their name.  Vernon’s appearance at All Points East will also come fresh off the back of performances with Big Red Machine, his collaborative project with The National’s Aaron Dessner. The duo released their eponymous debut in mid-2018 to critical acclaim.

Each release has seen the group, spearheaded by Justin Vernon, reinvent their sound and style, most recently on 2016’s 22,A Million. The album received critical acclaim, frequently appeared on media’s ‘Best Of The Year’ lists, and translated into an equally riveting live performance – the latter highlighted via Bon Iver’s epic eight-night residency at London’s Eventim Hammersmith Apollo.

Already announced as playing alongside Bon Iver are: Mac DeMarco, sure to bring his trademark ‘jizz-jazz’ and notorious stage antics to Victoria Park; First Aid Kit, a duo of Swedish sisters who have released four beautifully rich and elegant records over the last decade; cult American singer-songwriter John Grant; Kristia Matsson aka The Tallest Man On Earth, who easily outshines frequent ‘heir to Dylan’ labels; Julien Baker, whose candid, captivating songwriting enchants audiences around the world; Snail Mail, whose debut Lush cementer her as one of 2018’s breakout indie stars; and Congolese collective KOKOKO!, who fuse their love of electronic music with African and Arabic sounds.

Over on the JägerHaus stage, Bill Ryder-Jones, Gwenno, WestermanBlack Country, New RoadGently TenderSteve Davis & Kavus Torabi (DJ Set), Drowned In Sound DJs and Los Bitchos will be keeping the music flowing all day.

East London’s beautiful Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets also hosted a hugely popular 4-day community focused midweek event last year. Kicking off on the second Bank Holiday Monday, In The Neighbourhood is set to return across the half term week for 2019. Featuring free access to the All Points East site, In The Neighbourhood will host a vibrant programme of activities and entertainment, in collaboration with the local community, businesses, organisations and suppliers. From free Outdoor Cinema, Live Music and Entertainment, Street Food to Pop Up Bars, Theatre, Arts, Sports & Wellbeing, Children’s Activities and much more.

The new location of Doctor Music Festival is now the Circuit deBarcelona-Catalunya, – Montmeló, on the 12th, 13th and 14th of July.

The opening day on Thursday 11th July has unfortunately been suspended, with Parquet Courts’ performance being moved to Friday 12th and the Smashing Pumpkins show moving to Sunday 14th as one of the headliners on that day.
They accepted this change with the respect and courtesy only worthy of one of the most emblematic bands on the international music scene.  The band was willing to accommodate the date and time change for the sake of the festival, their fans, and the other bands.

The return of Doctor Music Festival was due to be held in the Escalarre Vall d’Àneu valley, where the festival’s previous editions had been held. However, due to an unfavourable and final report from the ACA (The Catalan Water Agency) today they have been forced to move the festival to a new location, as with just 4 months left to go, it would be impossible to reduce the size of the festival in order to meet the limitations required.

In the festival’s opinion, there has been a very over-exaggerated and destructive interpretation of the regulations surroundings theoretical flood risks in the valley, which has never before flooded in summer (at least as far as current data shows). The stringency levels which have been applied in this case far surpass the norm and we have therefore been forced to abandon the originally planned location in order to ensure that all artistic commitments made are complied with, and make sure that the festival goes ahead as per originally designed for this new edition.

All of the festival’s previously confirmed acts will remain the same, with the exception of Chris Robinson Brotherhood. There will also be several new acts added to the line-up at the Circuit deBarcelona-Catalunya, Montmeló (an internationally renowned location boasting excellent facilities and spanning over more than 600,000m2)

Thanks to the privileged location of Montmeló, at just 32 kilometres from Barcelona, with multiple access routes by car, as well as its own train station, this venue offers a multitude of amenities for festivalgoers which would be difficult to find at any other large music festival of this scale.

This new festival edition envisions the most innovative and dramatic of set designs, in line with cutting-edge international design. There will be four very different spaces, each bursting with personality and a distinctive look.

The main stage spans 162 meters long and is the biggest stage ever to be held at a festival or concert in southern Europe. It has been designed by no other than Ray Winkler, the leading talent behind the famous London studio Stufish Entertaiment Architects www.stufish.comThey are responsible for the stage setups of many international tours for the likes of The Rolling Stones, U2, Metallica, AC/DC, Madonna, Beyoncé & Jay Z, Muse, Pink Floyd… and many more. The lighting for such a special stage will be created by no other than the prestigious lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe, general director of Woodroffe Basset Design, who designed the most recent tours for AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Adele, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Paul Simon and Phil Collins, among many other.

Special mention must also go to the Force Field area, which will play host to a special program of open-air electronic music, for which the full line-up will be announced very soon!
This novel concept has been created and designed by Damian Lazarus himself, the influential DJ and producer responsible for the success of festivals such as Get Lostin Miami or Day Zero in Tulum, together with the help from the prestigious Belgian studio Criaturas

It will be a one-of-a-kind exclusive experience, with a specially designed concept and look for the occasion. Luciano, Jamie Jones, Âme and Dj Tennis are just some of the 23 artists set to fill this innovative space with their force and energy.

The current design of Doctor Music Festival now encompasses three full festival days and due to the production facilities at the new venue, we are offering new festival ticket prices, which will no doubt be music to your ears!

New Prices: 
1-DAY PASS: 62 € *
2-DAY PASS: 120 € *
3-DAY PASS: 170 € *

*Distribution costs not included.

These festival tickets are now available to purchase

All Points East returns for a stellar second year to Tower Hamlet’s Victoria Park, following a sold-out 2018 debut that established a new and essential music event in central London. Today, All Points East continues to expand with the announcement of three stages, featuring an array of cutting-edge acts at the forefront of their scenes.

Jägermeister’s JägerHaus stage will combine Bauhaus-inspired décor with a mix of established and emerging artists from a blend of genres. Headline acts announced so far include acclaimed, trailblazing songwriter Gruff Rhys, a rare live set from Gold Panda, one of the most inventive and exciting electronic acts around; Bill Ryder-Jones, who released one of 2018’s most acclaimed albums via illustrious imprint Domino Records; Romare, who will light up the Haus with a thrilling live set of leftfield electronic grooves; plus tropical pop from reggae royalty Hollie Cook. Top bands including Fat White Family and The Vaccines will also be playing DJ sets across the two weekends, with the stage also featuring performances from Gwenno, Cassia, Gabe Gurnsey and more.

Firestone will be hosting a stage showcasing some of the best upcoming talent around. Headlining it on Friday 24th May will be German rapper Kelvyn Colt, who dropped out of law school to follow his musical ambitions, and crafts songs filled with compassion and emotion. London-based band Balcony will bring their shimmering, synth-heavy pop to the headline slot the day after on Saturday 25th. On Sunday 26th, West London rapper Lava La Rue will close the first weekend of the Firestone stage with her lo-fi sound and reflective flow. Other names across the weekend include: Yota, Kaiit, Lou Doillon, John Nicholas, Valeras, Naked Elephant, Vista Kicks, Louis VI and Alice D.

The Rayban Studios X Stage will have different guest hosts across the festival’s first weekend, with each bringing their own unique musical flavour.

Kicking off on the second Bank Holiday Monday, In The Neighbourhood is set to return across the half term week for 2019. Featuring free access to the All Points East site, In The Neighbourhood will host a vibrant programme of activities and entertainment, in collaboration with the local community, businesses, organisations and suppliers.

The long-awaited Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt based on the 2001 New York Times bestselling autobiography debuted last Friday, March 22. The band immediately became the top searched topic on Google Trends with a 4300% spike in searches.  

Streaming partners have been quick to support the film’s soundtrack and Mötley Crüe’s catalogue with the Global Marquee feature on Spotify, and Apple Music building a dedicated Mötley Super Room. The pay back was instant with a 570% stream increase on Spotify, a 900% stream increase on Apple Music, and Apple iTunes downloads growing 2027%. Amazon, with triple digit streaming growth is benefitting from sales of the book being back at #1 music book, and Mötley’s Deezer streams are up 669%. 

The Mötley Essentials playlist is now charting higher than Drake Essentials on Apple Music. The effect is being felt globally in 150 markets with top 10 iTunes charts around the world. 

Early returns show the movie at 85% audience score at Rotten Tomatoes, on par with Bohemian Rhapsody’s 87% and ahead of Black Panther’s 79%. It is changing perceptions too, as women are enjoying “The Dirt” just as much, if not more than men, giving it a higher grade (7.4/10) than their male counterparts (7.1/10), according to an IMDB survey.

The cautionary tale aims to deglamorize the sex, drugs and rock n roll lifestyle led by the notorious rockers. It unflinchingly portrays domestic violence, drunk driving and drug addiction to a mass audience. The Guardian’s Stephen Snart writes, “Real-life manager and producer Allen Kovac has said in interviews that the mission of the movie is to deglamorize the rock’n’roll lifestyle. That does come through.”   

Further critical acclaim has come from global media outlets; 

“Fresh and fast-paced.”

The Guardian

“We Finally Got a Mötley Crüe Movie and It Was Worth the Wait.”


“Crüe biopic dishes`The Dirt’ and heart.”

USA Today

“The Dirt – both the book and the movie – is wildly entertaining.”

Entertainment Weekly

“The wait for “The Dirt” to come to the screen … was worth it.”


“It’s a funny, foul-mouthed, whirlwind ride through one of the last great eras in rock history.”

– Newsday

Queen’s Roger Taylor, who appears in the book, was similarly awed at a preview screening, exclaiming: “Wow, that took me back! Brilliant.”

The film’s stars, Douglas Booth (Nikki Sixx), Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon (Mick Mars), Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) (Tommy Lee), Daniel Webber (Vince Neil), David Costabile (Doc McGhee) and Pete Davidson (Tom Zutaut) have all been getting critical kudos. “They possess similar abilities to navigate between charm and repulsion, all working together to create such a chummy group that their power as an ensemble elevates the material. Just like their real-life counterparts,” wrote The Guardian.

Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx says, “In the film we show painful examples of domestic violence, DUI, manslaughter, drug overdose and the loss of a child. We couldn’t possibly have crammed everything from a 430-page book into an hour and 50-minute movie, but we felt we achieved our objective of showing the downside of sex drugs and rock and roll”. 

Nikki Sixx hopes to use the message of the film to draw attention to the USA’s opioid crisis. Sixx, a recovering addict himself, has established a music program for kids at Covenant House in Los Angeles and is instrumental in drawing attention to the root causes of addiction. A personal mission, Sixx is collaborating with the U.S. Surgeon General to fight opioid addiction, and will bring his best-selling Heroin Diaries book to life with a musical of the same name, due to debut in 2019 with partners including Live Nation Ticketmaster, 11-7, Scott Borchetta, and Downtown Music. 

Meanwhile, on the music side, The Dirt Soundtrack on Mötley Records and Eleven Seven Music immediately reached #1 on the iTunes All Genres Chart and currently stands at #4 US and #5 worldwide. The Greatest Hits album currently stands at #2 in the US on iTunes and at #11 worldwide. The soundtrack features four new songs including the first single, “The Dirt (Est. 1981) (feat. Machine Gun Kelly)” and their unlikely cover of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” In addition, Spotify garnered an 8-fold increase in daily streams, from approximately 400,000 to 3,600,000, and still increasing.

“Our strategy was to use both the film and music algorithmic echo chamber to have a virtuous circle, each propelling the other to greater heights. The new song is The Dirt feat Machine Gun Kelly, the film is titled The Dirt, The Book is The Dirt.And the audiences have voted on the music streaming platforms and on social media, critics are a thing of the past as Bohemian Rhapsody has shown” said Kovac, who served as a producer on the film.

Kovac gave kudos to Eleven Seven Music senior management and Mötley Crüe Managers at 10thStreet Entertainment, “I want to tip my hat to Chris Nilsson and Konstanze Louden, and the rest of the 10thStreet Management team, Eleven Seven Label Group COO Steve Kline, GM Rose Slanic, VP Mary Thayer, Europe MD Dan Waite, CFO Dan Lieblein, and their teams who are some of the most innovative and progressive marketers in entertainment today. The success of the music and this film comes from their efforts.”

After almost two decades since the ground-breaking publication of “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band” by HarperCollins in 2001, the film version has come to life, causing just as much controversy as the book did when it was all the talk of bands on the rock festival circuit, where copies were strategically placed. From the film’s overall buzz, the book landed at #1 on several of Amazon’s book charts.

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park announces guests for Celine Dion’s show

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park today announces guests for Celine Dion’s first ever headlining show in the Royal Park this July. Special guest and global superstar Josh Groban with support from Claire Richards.  

Celine will be headlining The Great Oak Stage for her only European date of 2019 and her performance will come just a month after the end of her second record-breaking Las Vegas residency Celine on 8 June 2019. 

“Over the course of my career, Celine has been an inspiration, friend, and singing with her quite frankly started my career as a teenager,” says Groban.  “To join her for this extremely special concert is a great honor and I look forward to giving my all for her and the audience at Hyde Park.” 

Grammy Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and actor Josh Groban has entertained fans across the globe with his multi-platinum albums and DVDs (over 35 million sold worldwide), electrifying live performances, and comedic film and television appearances. The 37-year-old Los Angeles native stands out as “the only artist who has had two albums appear on the Top 20 Best-Selling Albums list of the past decade,” according to Billboard. His discography encompasses eight studio albums, including his 2001 self-titled 5x-platinum debut, 2003’s 6x-platinum Closer, 2006’s double-platinum Awake, 2007’s 6x platinum Grammy-nominated Noel, 2010’s gold-certified Illuminations, 2013’s gold-certified All That Echoes, 2015’s worldwide million selling Stages, and most recently 2018’s Bridges.

Claire Richards has launched a successful solo career this year with the single On My Own and album My Wildest Dreams. Claire, however, signed her first record deal 23 years ago and has achieved enormous success with Steps, racking up fourteen top 5 hits, three number 1 albums, a Brit Award and 20 million record sales. The iconic pop group reunited for last year’s acclaimed Tears on the Dancefloor album, which debuted at number 2, and a hugely popular 22-date sold out arena tour. But now, Claire is stepping into the spotlight alone with My Wildest Dreams breaking the UK Top 10

Claire Richards says: “Performing at Hyde Park on the same stage as my idol Celine really is a dream come true and I’m so excited to perform tracks from my album with my live band”. 

Celine Dion will headline Hyde Park for the very first time on the Great Oak Stage on Friday 5th July 2019. Tickets are on sale now. Already announced for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park2019 are Florence and the Machine (13th July), Robbie Williams (14thJuly) and Barbara Streisand (7th July).

MelodyVR release a group of new shows, including The Streets’ riotous Brixton Academy comeback

The grandmaster of garage Mike Skinner makes his hallowed return with The Streets to the O2 Brixton Academy, for a party-heavy performance complete with crowd surfing, special guest appearances and double pints galore. Skinner said: ‘We filmed one of our recent gigs at Brixton in VR and it’s an absolute mazza. You can even follow me jumping into the crowd and see the panic on my tour manager’s face. THIS IS FOR YOUR KIDS! IN 20 YEARS TIME THERE’LL BE NO EXCUSES! See it now on MelodyVR.’

Fans of the chart-topping country singer Thomas Rhett will be able to experience his performance at the Honda Centre in Anaheim, CA from his very own point of view – MelodyVR are offering a special five-track premiere of the singer-songwriter’s VR debut. He said: ‘I’m really excited to be able to share this with everyone who couldn’t make it to a stop on the Life Changes Tour, and also offer those who could a chance to relive it with me … from right where I was standing! It’s amazing being able to experience the show from this perspective and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.’

If there’s someone sitting in their bedroom, unable to come and see us, then they can watch it through their headset on MelodyVR!’

Packed with crowd favourites and culminating with an incredible light show during ‘Something To Remember Me By’, the gig will be all the more powerful in VR.

The Horrors said: ‘With the help of MelodyVR we’ve just stood next to ourselves onstage, jumped into the crowd and experienced our London KOKO show as our audience – it was insane! We can’t wait for all of our fans to experience us in virtual reality – it’s an experience like no other.’

Today, BASE Hologram, the leading content developer, producer and distributor of concerts, theatricals and spectacles that combine holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment, announced  Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ’N’ Roll Dream Tour, a groundbreaking tour featuring the award-winning rock and roll legends. 

Stemming from the success of BASE Hologram’s In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert tour that broke records across the globe over 2018,  the company will bring Orbison and Holly together for an enthralling event that will launch concurrent tours in Europe/UK and in North America.  Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet), who shepherded the In Dreams event will return as the director.

“Both Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly set the stage for what was to come down the road in the music industry,” said Brian Becker, Chairman and CEO of BASE Hologram.  “These two men were forward-thinkers who understood what new forms of technology could do for their craft. They defined the genre of Rock and Roll, from writing to recording to the standard band configuration, and they influenced everyone from Elvis to The Beatles. Now to be able to recapture that magic on a grand scale and let their fans see them together will be something truly special.”

Accompanied by a live band and live back-up singers, this cutting edge holographic performance and remastered audio will transport audiences back in time for an evening of Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly’s greatest hits onstage.

“Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly shared many similarities in both their musical and personal lives,” said BASE Hologram CEO of Production Marty Tudor.  “Many people don’t realize the two were friends who had a special connection. Roy was like a big brother to Buddy and the two helped make each other better songwriters and performers. It is only fitting they to continue pushing the envelope in this type of way.”

Universally recognised as one of the great music legends and praised by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Bono, Roy Orbison’s catalogue includes such chart-toppers as Oh, Pretty WomanYou Got ItOnly The LonelyCryingI Drove All Night, It’s Over and In Dreams.

“My father’s music meant the world to not just us Orbison’s but to millions of fans worldwide. Being able to reopen his legendary songbook and again hear his voice bounce off great concert hall walls is both a transcendent and cathartic experience,”said Roy Orbison, Jr., President of Roy Orbison Music. “Dad jammed with Buddy in Lubbock Texas and helped change music history by turning Buddy on to Norman Petty Studios; Buddy later returned the favor by recording two of Dad’s songs on his first Cricket’s album. How beyond cool and special that these two great friends, now get to tour the world together.”

A seasoned performer by age 16, Buddy Holly was known not just for his distinguished look, but also for his mastery of several music styles. In addition to hits such as Peggy Sue, Oh Boy!, Not Fade Away and That’ll Be the Day, Holly was among the first artists to use techniques such as double-tracking on his albums. Along with his beloved band The Crickets, Holly helped set the standard for the Beatles and others for rock and roll orchestration by setting the two guitar, bass and drum line-up now seen in traditional concerts.

“Buddy and Roy were Texans who shared a mutual respect and admiration for each other’s creative musical genius and brilliant songwriting abilities” said Buddy’s wife Maria Elena Holly. “I am proud to work with a company like BASE Hologram. Their long-time fans and a new generation of fans will now have the opportunity to see these great legends perform together in a unique setting, showcasing two of the finest, most influential, and beloved artists in music history.”

With nearly 3 million followers on Facebook and almost 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify between them, audiences are still enamored with the men who brought “geek chic” and horn-rimmed glasses into the mainstream. This tour will allow fans old and new to get the chance to experience these pioneering figures in a spectacular and thrilling new way. Pulling from their combined 16 platinum records, 19 gold records, nearly two dozen Top 40 hits and 10 combined GRAMMY awards, this transcendent musical event will give audiences a once in a lifetime musical experience. 

Tickets for UK dates go on sale this Friday 29th March, promoted by Kennedy Street Enterprises and are available from or directly from venues, prices from £45.

SARAH VALENTINE – 07825 439010




After a sold-out 2018 debut, the lineup for 2019’s All Points East is shaping up to be more than a match for last year’s bill — with tickets selling at lightning speed. Today, the festival is adding a plethora of talent to its first weekend, which runs from 24 – 26 May. 

Joining The Chemical Brothers on Friday 24th May will be BRIT-nominated poet and rapper Kate Tempest. Equal parts Wu-Tang Clan and William Blake, she has received consistent acclaim for both her literary and musical work: two of her studio albums have been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and her debut novel The Bricks That Built the Houses was a Sunday Times bestseller. She’s also known for her mesmeric live performances, which bring her words to life with an unsparing electronic soundtrack – in what will no doubt be a special moment at Victoria Park.

Also joining the lineup on the 24th are The Beta Band musician Steve Mason, Bristol collective Elder Island, described by The 405 as “inhabiting the nebulous space between dream pop and techno”, and Jadu Heart – an enigmatic alt-pop duo who create music as the supernatural characters, Dina and Faro.

They join an already-formidable lineup: The Chemical Brothers, Primal Scream, Hot Chip, Jon Hopkins (Live), Spiritualized, Little Dragon, Roisin Murphy, Danny Brown, Peggy Gou Presents Gou Talk, Optimo, David August, Josey Rebelle, Little Simz, Petite Noir, Maurice Fulton, Ibibio Sound Machine, DMX Krew, Lane 8 and Ge-ology.

Playing on Friday 25th with The Strokes will be Fat White Family — a Peckham-based, delightfully scuzzy band who incorporate a diverse bricolage of post-punk, rock & roll, country and psychedelia into their chaotic sound. Their live shows, which tread a fine line between the unhinged and the unmissable, are the stuff of legend — they’ve rapidly grown from tearing down pubs to venues like the O2 Brixton Academy. Their third album Serf’s Up! will be released this April.

A host of indie and alt-rock talent will also be on the bill on the 25th, including Amyl and the Sniffers, Temples, Angie McMahon, Dream Wife and Demob Happy. London-based label Yala! Records will host a stage on Saturday 25 May, curating an impeccable day of breaking acts including BC Camplight, Yak, Our Girl, Willie J Healey.

Previously announced for Saturday 25th are: The Strokes, The Raconteurs, Interpol, Johnny Marr, Courtney BarnettJarvis CockerAnna CalviParquet CourtsConnan MockasinViagra BoysBakar and The Nude Party

On Sunday 26th, Christine and the Queens will be joined by rising Dublin rapper Kojaque, who combines jazz-inflected hip-hop beats with a poetic turn of phrase that chronicles everyday Dublin life. There will also be an as-yet-unrevealed special guest joining at a prominent spot on the billing.

Also playing on the 26th are: Christine and the Queens, James Blake, Metronomy, Maribou State, Kamasi Washington, Beach House, Honne, Kurt Vile, Princess Nokia, Ezra Collective, Toro y Moi, Rina Sawayama, Bob Moses, Andrew Weatherall, Yves Tumor (Full band), Joy Orbison, Baloji, Cuco, Moxie (Presents On Loop), Octo Octa, Galcher Lustwerk and Paquita Gordon.

East London’s beautiful Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets also hosted a hugely popular 4-day community focused midweek event last year. Kicking off on the second Bank Holiday Monday, In The Neighbourhood is set to return across the half term week for 2019. Featuring free access to the All Points East site, In The Neighbourhood will host a vibrant programme of activities and entertainment, in collaboration with the local community, businesses, organisations and suppliers.

Barclaycard Presents British Summertime Hyde Park “THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY:  A CELEBRATION OF LIFE, LOVE & MUSIC”

Barclaycard Presents British Summertime Hyde Park “THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY: A CELEBRATION OF LIFE, LOVE & MUSIC”

Barclaycard Presents British Summertime Hyde Park “THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY: A CELEBRATION OF LIFE, LOVE & MUSIC”

Singer, songwriter, musician, and producer Stevie Wonder today announces “The Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music”, with very special guest Lionel Richie, in concert at Hyde Park Saturday 6th of July, 2019.

Stevie Wonder is one of the most celebrated and prominent figures inpopular music who, at the age of 12, was the youngest recording artist to have achieved a #1 single with “Fingertips, Part 2”.

To date he has amassed 49 Top Forty singles, 32 #1 singles and worldwide sales of over 100 million units. Stevie has won 25 Grammy Awards, the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.

As an activist, Stevie also spearheaded the realization of “Martin Luther King Day” as a national holiday. His participation in the “We Are The World” fundraiser for hunger in Africa was a music industry milestone and his involvement to put an end to apartheid in South Africa is legendary. He is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, and is a Commander of France’s National Order of Arts and Letters.

Stevie was awarded the Library of Congress’ Gershwin Prize for Popular Song where he performed his commission, “Sketches Of A Life,” which placed him in a very select group of eminent composers who have received library commissions, including Aaron Copeland, Leonard Bernstein and Paquito D’Rivera.

Stevie has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he is a designated U.N. Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities. He continues to be a pivotal influence in U.S. and world events, demonstrating the activism that has made him such a vital voice for social progress and world harmony.

Lionel Richie will be amongst the very special guests sharing the Great Oak Stage on July 6th. In December 2017, Stevie Wonder performed a cover of ‘Easy’ at Richie’s Kennedy Center Honours ceremony, which left Richie visibly emotional. He later said, “I got into the business because I wanted to be like Stevie Wonder, so for all of a sudden for Stevie to be singing my song, it was surreal.”

Lionel Richie has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having #1 records for nine consecutive years. Richie has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and is an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and four-time Grammy Awards winner. He received the distinction of MusicCares person of the year in 2016 and was a Kennedy Center Honoree in 2017.  In March 2018, Richie put his handprints and footprints in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX in Hollywood, one of the oldest awards in Hollywood. Lionel Richie is known for his early work with The Commodores as well as for his solo mega-hits including “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Truly,” “All Night Long,” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck on You,” “Hello,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” and one of the most important pop songs in history, “We Are the World,” for USA for Africa. With his most recent All the Hits, All Night Long Tour, Richie sold out arenas worldwide with a set list of his brightest and best anthems. In recent years, he has also headlined festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Glastonbury, drawing the festival’s biggest crowd ever with more than 200,000 attendees. Richie was a judge on ABC’s American Idol and has returned to the ‘Judge’s’ chair for the 2019 season.
