Daily Specials-MONDAY

 

*If you're headed to NYC this May, you can now check out Andy Warhol’s shorts in Times Square. The “shorts” are brief silent films the artist made of stars like Bob Dylan and Lou Reed at his studio in the mid-1960s. He made hundreds of the “Screen Tests” and some will be shown on the huge electronic billboards in the famous New York plaza. One will be shown every night in May around midnight.

 

*Paul McCartney has announced that he’s playing his first U.S. arena date of 2015 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center on June 21st. The show, which will be a part of his “Out There Tour,” will mark his first time making a stop in the city since his sold-out two-night concert back in 2010. Tickets go on sale on May 1st. McCartney is currently touring Japan and South Korea. In addition to the Philly date, Sir Paul is expected to return to the U.S. for appearances at Firefly Festival on June 19th and Lollapalooza on July 31st.

 

*Pete Townshend has released a new video previewing Classic Quadrophenia, his orchestral reworking of The Who's classic 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia. The clip is now posted on the band's Vevo channel. The new video to "Love Reign O'Er Me" features British tenor Alfie Boe with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Oriana Choir.  The album, titled Classic Quadrophenia, will be released June 9 in a standard, audio-only version and a deluxe edition featuring a bonus DVD. The deluxe Classic Quadrophenia package will feature the previously unreleased documentary Quadrophenia: Can You See the Real Me?, which contains rare interviews with, and performance footage of, The Who's original lineup.

 

*Elvis Presley's airplanes will remain grounded at Graceland. The estate announced that the King's two planes -- The Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II -- will be permanently housed at Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis. Both planes have been on display for Graceland tourists since 1984. The future of the airplanes were in doubt after OKC Partnership, which owns the aircraft -- was given approval by the Memphis City Council to move them down the street.  Lisa Marie Presley took to Twitter on Sunday to share the news, writing "Exciting news: I wanted to b the first to tell U: The Planes will remain at Graceland 4 ever! We own them and have fun plans 4 them as well."  Presley did not elaborate what those plans will be.

 

*Stephen Stills and Neil Young revisited their Buffalo Springfield roots Saturday night when they took the stage together at a benefit concert at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles. Stills and Young performed a nine-song set that included “Long May You Run” and their Buffalo Springfield hits “Mr. Soul,” “Bluebird” and “For What It’s Worth,” according to the Los Angeles Times.  The event was the third annual Light Up the Blues benefit concert. Stills and his wife, Kristen, organize the event, which raises funds for Autism Speaks, an organization that supports research and advocacy for people affected by the disorder and their families. The charity event also featured performances by Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin and a guitar auction that was won by Brad Pitt. The actor bid $23,000 for a Fender Stratocaster that was signed by all the performers.

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.”
