Maybe they’ll just bill themselves as ‘[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Jacksons[/lastfm].’ Brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito are ready to hit the road, Michael was said to be the reluctant one when plans were discussed previously.
Yes! The boys, according to their press release are saying that their concerts will ‘showcase the group’s classics like “I Want You Back” and “ABC”, and will honor their late brother Michael. The question is, who will sing lead on all of those Michael-led songs? My guess is Jermaine, since he was their #2 vocalist.
Anyway, ‘The Unity Tour” makes a stop in Charlotte at the Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre on 7/7. The boys will be in Raleigh at the Raeligh Amphitheatre the night before, on 7/6.
Scotty McCreery will be taking classes at North Carolina State University this fall. He says he chose the school because he’s not ready to be out and completely on his own just yet. The campus is just 15 minutes from home. EW.com reports that Scotty’s dad is an alum.
Scotty is still on-board as an opener on Brad Paisley’s ‘Virtual Reality Tour,’ which starts in May and wraps up in October. Scotty also has some appearances of his own, including the North Carolina Azalea Festival in Wilmington next weekend, April 13th.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rihanna[/lastfm] is looking forward to hitting the road in 2013. She announced on her Facebook page that she’s already working out details of the tour. Her plan is to use the rest of 2012 to make sure that her next tour is ‘Bigger than anything we’ve done and something more impactful.” That’s going to be a tough nut to crack. Rihanna’s ‘Loud Tour” featured more than 90 shows on three continents, and brought in a reported 90-million dollars!!!
If you can’t wait to see Rihanna in 2013, you’ll be happy to know you can catch her on the big screen next month. She’ll be starring in the action flim ‘Battleship,’ which opens May 18th.
