In the first of a brand new weekly blog post, Marie takes you through the latest music news and events.
Today I will be talking about all the music news and events of recent weeks just to keep everyone up to date. First of some people may be happy to note (some not so happy) that Justin Bieber is still at the top of the singles charts in Australia. Also it has been announced that Iron Maiden’s 2016 world tour will start in the U.S. The heavy metal rockers have mapped out in detail where they will be travelling starting in late February, including Australia, Canada, Brazil and will make a stop in China for the very first time. Tickets will be put on sale from September 24th, so any fans need to get them as soon as possible as this tour is going to be extremely popular.
As I am a massive John Legend fan I thought I would just add this small titbit about him, he is to receive the Presidential award for service and humanitarian efforts at the triumph awards. If anyone is waiting with bated breath to see this show to is set to air on October 3rd. many people will be overjoyed, including me, to hear that The Weeknd is currently spending his second week at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Charts with the album Beauty Behind the Madness. One of my favourite rock bands, Five Finger Death Punch are holding second place with Got Your Six, which came in at number 1 on the Top Rock Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums charts. Rapper Travi$ Scott holds number 3 with his debut studio album Rodeo.
According to reports a Radio DJ who was apparently fired for grabbing Taylor Swifts buttocks is suing the pop star. The DJ, David Mueller, has denied this inappropriate contact. Taylor Swifts publicist issued a statement saying Mueller’s employer gave evidence after the incident and made the decision to let Mueller go. To leave you on a brighter note Foo Fighters Album Sonic Highways has received two Emmy Awards. Thank you for reading and keep your eye open for more music updates.
