As seen on BrookylnVegan, Green Day have rescheduled a bunch of North American tour dates that were originally postponed to allow frontman Billy Joe Armstrong to attend rehab. A January 8 performance at the Allstate Arena was among those postponed dates, which is now scheduled for March 28. They'll also play the I Wireless Center in Moline, IL on March 29. More tickets for their Allstate Arena show will be on sale soon; same for their I Wireless Center show are on sale now. Best Coast were originally opening this tour, but we're not quite sure if that's still the case. All original ticket purchases will be honored.

An updated list of tour dates and a stream of their new-ish song "Fuck Time" (yes, "Fuck Time") are below...

Those Darlins @ the Vic on 7/27/2012
Those Darlins

Nashville's Those Darlins finished up a summer North American tour with Best Coast this past weekend. One of their final stops on that run was a performance at the Vic on Friday, July 27. More pictures from their opening set continue below. Unfortunately one night later, in Minneapolis, MN, a guitar and a bass were stolen from their van just after a show at the Cedar Cultural Center. Details on those instruments can be found HERE; please contact them if you see either.

As seen on BrooklynVegan, Those Darlins are set to head out on tour with the Old 97's later this month. That tour does hit Chicago, though the band will not be opening that leg of it. After their stint with the 97's, Those Darlins will embark on a short tour with Heavy Cream in October. That tour visits Chicago's Schubas for a show on November 1. Tickets go on sale this Friday (8/3) at noon CST.

All Those Darlins dates and more pictures from the Vic are below...

Muse @ ACL 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)
Muse

According to Greg Kot, Eminem, Muse, and the Foo Fighters will be among the 2011 Lollapalooza headliners (August 5 - 7 in Grant Park)...

"Reliable industry sources confirmed the bookings Tuesday...

...Also expected to play Lollapalooza, according to several industry sources: Best Coast, Girl Talk, Crystal Castles and Lykke Li. At least three more headliners will join Eminem, Muse and Foo Fighters. The complete Lollapalooza lineup is expected to be officially released in April."

Hopefully the three TBA headliners help the fest live up to the awesomeness that was 2010. We'll have to wait until April to know for sure.

Meanwhile you can catch Girl Talk (one of the rumored not-headliners) at Congress Theater for two mights in March. All announced Girl Talk dates below...
