The last time I saw Charli XCX was in 2015, at a theater in Detroit, where she was absurdly upstaged by her tourmate/co-headliner, Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers. Despite not having the same level of high-charting hits, Antonoff seemed to command more passion from the crowd, never hesitating to pull from his Springsteen…

A woman has accused two crew members of raping her backstage after a Weekend show in Columbus, Ohio last week.
Read her lips: Britney Spears is pissed and she wants credit. In a recent interview that ran on Israeli TV, the pop diva decried those who accuse her of lip-syncing. “A lot of people think that I don’t sing live,” Spears said. “Because I’m dancing so much I do have a little bit of playback, but there’s a mixture of my…
On Monday night, Ariana Grande performed in the city of Manchester, England to a vast, mostly adolescent audience. Nothing seemed amiss until the end of the show, when an explosion tore through the arena foyer. So far nineteen people have been pronounced dead, and at least 50 injured.
To begin, Solange marched down the spiral white ramp of the Guggenheim Museum in a chorus line of black women. The media people hanging near the edge of the barrier on each tier were forced to part, to create several inches of distance between the artist and ourselves, so that she and her performers could get to the…
On August 26, 2014, Kate Bush played her first full concert since 1979. In the 22-show residency that followed at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, called Before the Dawn, Bush played a three-act set, with one focused on an assortment of songs, one that recreated the narrative suite on her classic Hounds of Love album’s…
On Monday afternoon, soon after canceling the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West was hospitalized in the Los Angeles area. He is currently under medical observation.
Kanye West, a man of many opinions, has yet another one: Frank Ocean should be nominated for a Grammy. In fact, Kanye feels so strongly about the matter that he has threatened not to attend the ceremony if Ocean is snubbed. And he’s right: Ocean absolutely should be nominated. The problem is that he isn’t.
Last night, Kanye West kicked off his Saint Pablo tour in Indianapolis with a crazy flying stage. Instead of a boring, normal, stationary stage—you know, the kind most artists jump and gyrate all over—Kanye decided to float above the audience on a suspended platform.
On Saturday night, Blac Chyna attended Mariah Carey’s Las Vegas concert and was rewarded with a lap dance.
During an ANTI tour stop in Dublin, Ireland on Tuesday, Rihanna broke into tears on stage as the crowd sang the words to “Love the Way You Lie.” She’s cried on tour before (in 2013 while singing “Stay”), a moment that also seemed like genuine waterworks. It’s a trip, considering how many times these artists sing while…
What would you do if you were ever leaping distance from Enrique Iglesias? You would LEAP, you stupid girl!!!!!
Ticketmaster has to pay out millions of dollars as part of a huge class action settlement deal, which also includes vouchers to future concerts. Consider yourself lucky if you’re dying to see the Tedeschi Trucks Band Wheels of Soul 2016 Summer Tour in Alpharetta, Georgia. Or Barenaked Ladies.
Entertainers have found a way to regulate irritating cell phone usage at shows and it involves making fans carry their phones in a huge pouch.
Society’s biggest threat isn’t capitalism, but in fact the concert terrorists who hold up phones—or worse, IPADs!—throughout an entire show to capture photos and video for Instagram, Snapchat and the like, thus ruining the live experience of being at a show.
A 15-year-old girl in hospice care was determined to attend a Florence and The Machine concert in spite of her illness. But as the day drew nearer, it became evident that she was too sick to leave the Austin, Texas medical facility. So, on Friday, May 20, Florence came to her instead.
Lauryn Hill is so infamous for showing up wild late to concerts (as in up to four hours late) that people avoid even attending her shows. After fans in Atlanta waited over two hours on Friday, Hill posted what sounds like a bullshit explanation on Facebook.
Hey, jealousy. The crowd at the Montreal Society for Arts and Technology KANPE KANAVAL benefit concert was transported to another plane of melodic euphoria when Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, and Richard Reed Parry united with David Byrne to perform songs from Talking Heads.
