Metallica

Metallica announced earlier this week that they will be performing in Vancouver on August 24, 2012 at Rogers Arena. They will be playing all their hits from their 30-year career on their state of the art 360-degree stage that needs to be seen to be believed. They will also be using different visual effects and stage components through out the show.

This is the first time the band has returned to Vancouver since December of 2008. The Vancouver announcement follows earlier news that Metallica will perform in Edmonton on August 17th.

Metallica’s Lars Ulrich released this statement: “Our rabid Canadian fans will love this … over the top, out of control stage that will be the cornerstone of our touring escapades for the next years to come.”

Donna Summer passes away at age 63

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

It’s been a sad couple of weeks for music. Not even two weeks since rap pioneer Adam “MCA” Yauch died at age 48, cancer has claimed another music legend as Donna Summer – the “Queen of Disco” – passed away today.

From Rolling Stone:

Disco legend Donna Summer died this morning at the age of 63, TMZ reports. The singer had been battling cancer for some time. According to TMZ, Summer was in Florida at the time of her death.

Summer was a five-time Grammy winner best known for smash hits including “I Feel Love,” “Love to Love You Baby” and “She Works Hard for the Money.” Her collaborations with producer Giorgio Moroder in the the Seventies broke ground for dance music and have been hugely influential on electronic music in the decades since.
