Daily Specials-Thursday

 

*The Eagles, Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones are among the artists who will vie for honors at the2014 Billboard Touring Awards, scheduled for November 20 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. The Eagles are finalists in the Top Tour category, which acknowledges the highest-grossing tours of the year. McCartney and The Stones both are in the running for the Top Boxscore prize, which honors the highest-grossing single engagement by an artist.  The former Beatles star is being recognized for a three-concert November 2013 stand at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, while his fellow British rockers got their nod for a three-show engagement at the same venue in February and March of this year. 

 

*Bob Seger has scheduled several new concerts as part of the second leg of his recently-announced North American tour with his Silver Bullet Band in support of his latest album, Ride Out.  Among the newly-added shows are performances on January 27 in Charleston, West Virginia; February 3 in Ft. Meyers, Florida; February 10 in Lafayette, Louisiana; and February 17 in Wichita, Kansas. The J. Geils Band will be the opening act on select dates of the trek.  Tickets are on sale now for all shows through January 29.  Check out BobSeger.com to find out when tickets the Michigan rocker's other concerts will be available for purchase. Listen to WIN YOUR TICKETS when the tour rolls on to the Scott Trade Center on December 13th!

 

*Genesis fans excited to get their hands on the home video version of the group's recent career-spanning documentary, Sum of the Parts, will have to wait...  DVD and Blu-ray editions of the film, which initially were supposed to be released in November, now are scheduled to hit stores on January 13, 2015. Sum of the Parts, which premiered October 10 on Showtime, follows the band's journey from its formation in 1967 through its transition to the group's most recent tour in 2007 and beyond.  The documentary also delves into the successful solo careers that several Genesis members enjoyed.  In addition, the movie reunites the group's classic mid-1970s lineup of singer Peter Gabriel, singer/drummer Phil Collins, keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and lead guitarist Steve Hackett, who are featured being interviewed together.

 

*Former Yes frontman Jon Anderson has released a new charity single that he recorded with ex-Counting Crows bassist Matt Malley titled "The Family Circle."  Proceeds raised by sales of the tune will benefit three organizations -- the Flutie Foundation, Sahaja Yoga Meditation and the National Autistic Society.

Jethro Tull’s ‘A Passion Play’ Getting Deluxe Reissue Treatment

Jethro Tull, 'A Passion Play'
Chrysalis

Jethro Tull‘s 1973 album ‘A Passion Play’ is returning to stores this summer, with a fresh remastering job and loads of bonus material in tow.

Originally released in July 1973, ‘Passion’ served as the proper follow-up to 1972′s smash hit ‘Thick as a Brick,’ and found the band working overtime to come up with new material before a scheduled tour. The pressure was on after initial attempts to record a double LP at the Chateau d’Herouville in France ended in ruin.

Halford will need to cope with that British reserve a little more often in the near future; he can expect to hear a few more screams next month, when Priest’s new album ‘Redeemer of Souls‘ arrives in stores.

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford Explains ‘Metal God’ Trademark

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford made the news a few years back when word got out that he’d applied for a trademark covering his ‘Metal God’ nickname. During a recent appearance on the long-running BBC talk show ‘Later with Jools Holland,’ he opened up about the reasons why.

“I would never put myself on that pedestal,” explained Halford when Holland broached the subject. “That’s the title the fans started to give me after the famous ‘British Steel’ album, where we had ‘Breaking the Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight.’” Nevertheless, he added, “It’s something I really cherish, and I don’t want anybody else to be the Metal God but me.”
