Smashing Pumpkins @ Allstate Arena in Chicago (more by Jimmy Farabi)
Can't complain about a cheaper ticket:
Leading up to their New York City show on Monday, December 10, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS and Barclays Arena (where the band will be performing) have joined forces with the Brooklyn Recovery Fund to contribute to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts by offering the charity a portion of a specially priced $25 ticket available now at: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/00004916E157C497The Monday Brooklyn show is the last of three remaining rescheduled tour dates. They are all listed below...
The Brooklyn Nets, Barclays Center, Forest City Ratner Companies and the Brooklyn Community Foundation each pledged $100,000, for a total of $400,000 to create the Brooklyn Recovery Fund. Brooklyn Recovery Fund provides support to Brooklyn's nonprofit organizations working with the communities and individuals most affected by Hurricane Sandy.
At the Barclays Center show, the iconic PUMPKINS--singer/guitarist BILLY CORGAN, guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO--are performing their acclaimed new OCEANIA CD in full and for the second half of the show they'll play classics and deep cuts from their multi-platinum body of work. The PUMPKINS are backed by visuals prepared by Sean Evans, whose most recent project was assisting Roger Waters on the newest staging of "The Wall." The PUMPKINS are using new technology in video-mapping to create something new and previously unseen. Joining the PUMPKINS is English group Morning Parade.
Barclays Center, the night Rush was there (more by Fred Pessaro)
Speaking of the rusty Barclays Center (where we caught Neil Young and Patti Smith last night), Jay-Z just posted a 25 minute documentary about the new home of the Nets, entitled "Where I'm From: JAY Z Barclays Center Documentary" to YouTube. You can watch it, footage of Jay in the subway included, below...
"It's an indisputable fact that the Barclays Center has one of the best veggie burgers in Brooklyn, somehow." - Joey Arak
""Thank you Jay-Z... Crazy Horse!". - Neil Young's final words on stage at the Barclays Center tonight." - BrooklynVegan
Crazy Horse (more by Gretchen Robinette)
As you know, Neil Young and Crazy Horse aren't really switching up the setlists on this tour. In fact, though some cities get a different song in the encore, the setlist at Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night was exactly the same as the one they played at MSG. Regardless, it was a great Brooklyn show, especially for those who were seeing it for the first time. If you missed both area shows, you can still always head to Atlantic City this week.
Patti Smith and band (Lenny Kaye included) however did mix it up during her powerful 8pm opening set. She ended with "Gloria" like she did at MSG, but we also got her moving cover of Neil Young's "It's a Dream" and hit "Because the Night."
Full setlists for Neil and Patti and some videos below...

The Who are out performing their classic 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia on a tour that came to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night (11/14), the first of five NYC-area dates that stretch into the new year (actually six if you count the just-announced Sandy benefit). Tickets are still on sale for those other shows, and pictures and the setlist from the Brooklyn show are in this post. .
Someone at the Greensboro show wrote:
"Concluding Quadrophenia with a stellar "Love Reign O'er Me," the encore was a string of greatest hits which ignited the crowd. "Baba O' Reilly" had the whole coliseum on it's feet reliving teenage wasteland days. Next, Townsend's guitar laid out the opening notes to "Pinball Wizard" and Daltrey seized the vocals. Daltrey was excellent on the classic "Behind Blue Eyes" while manhandling an acoustic guitar. "Who Are You" rocked the place once more before bringing the house down with "Won't Get Fooled Again." As scenes from 9/11 flashed on the video screens the power and emotion of the music could not have been clearer." [CL]Full NYC setlist and more pictures, opener Vintage Trouble included, below...
As mentioned, Smashing Pumpkins were forced to reschedule a few of their dates due to Hurricane Sandy, and now they've finally got a new date set for their postponed Brooklyn show which would have happened at Barclays Center on Halloween. The band will now play Barclays Center on December 10. Morning Parade will open and tickets are still available and all tix for the original date will be honored. Updated Smashing Pumpkins dates (including the rescheduled Mohegan Sun [12/2] date and a Susquehanna Bank Center [12/8] show in Camden, NJ) are listed below.
Meanwhile, on Monday (11/12) the new Brooklyn arena hosted a Justin Bieber show. We swear we tried, but unfortunately things didn't work out and we couldn't make it to that one, but the Daily News was there to witness the Biebs soar through the air in huge angel wings.
The Who play there tonight (11/14), for what will be their first of five NYC area shows on their tour performing Quadrophenia in full for its 40th anniversary. The other NYC area shows happen on 12/5 at MSG, 12/6 at Prudential Center in NJ, 12/9 at Mohegan Sun in CT, and 2/21/13 at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island. Tickets for all five shows are still available.
Updated Smashing Pumpkins dates are listed below...
We knew it seemed a little weird when The Rolling Stones only announced shows at NJ's The Prudential Center (12/13 and 12/15) and London's O2 Arena (11/25 and 11/29), but not Brooklyn's Barclays Center, which they were rumored to play. Well not too surprisingly, now that both Prudential Center shows are sold out, the Stones have announced that they will in fact play Barclays Center on December 8. Tickets for that show go on sale November 19 at 10 AM.
If you missed out on getting tickets to the Prudential Center shows, you'll still be able to watch a stream of the second show they play there on December 15 at 9 PM live on pay-per-view via WWE. The stream will be available through all cable, satellite, and telco providers.
As mentioned, Coldplay will also celebrate New Year's at the Barclays Center with shows there on December 30 and 31, the latter of which is with Jay-Z.
An updated list of dates and the stream of their new single, "Doom and Gloom," are below.
Chris Martin & Jay-Z (via)
Coldplay, who release a DVD/live album called "Coldplay Live 2012" on 11/19, have announced three end-of-the-year shows, all in the in the NYC area, two of which are at the new Barclays Center, one of which is on New Year's Eve with Jay-Z (who already played there eight times this year). It looks like this:

Mumford and Sons at Terminal 5 in 2010 (more by David Andrako)

A$AP Rocky @ Fun Fun Fun Fest - 11/03/2012
If A$AP Rocky has anything going for him besides a few internet rap hits and some memorable moments dropping in on his friends' shows, it's that he's already got some pretty far out stories to tell. He recently revealed an interview with Hard Knock TV that he smoked weed with Daft Punk on his tour bus (hopefully in Colorado). Now he just needs to get them to play at his house!
He also declared himself a factor in evolving society's views on homosexuality. "I kicked down the door for kids that's my age, older and younger, to be able to wear Jeremy Scott sneakers, rips in their jeans and not feel gay," Rocky says. Because of him, kids can wear whatever they want and not have to worry about being mistaken for being gay. Yeah, that doesn't sound homophobic at all (it's a start though) (watch the whole thing in the video below - he means well).
In 2013, he'll be able to add another epic story to his resumé, when he heads out on tour with Rihanna. That tour comes to NYC for the previously discussed show at Barclays Center on May 4, which is sold out, and also hits the same venue one day later (5/5), which tickets are on sale for now. Hopefully Rocky will have his new album, LongLiveA$AP, out by then which he has kept delaying. He's now hoping to get it out during the first quarter of 2013.
As mentioned, you can also catch A$AP Mob with A-Trak at Best Buy Theater on November 29 and A$AP Twelvy at Highline Ballroom on November 22.
A$AP Rocky also just played Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin this past weekend (as did Run DMC). You can check out more pictures from his set (like the one above), the video of that Hard Knock TV interview, and a list of all upcoming tour dates, below....
Mumford & Sons being a "big" band is not really news (in fact only Taylor Swift had a bigger debut sales week this year), so it should not be a surprise that the band, who played SNL in October, just announced headlining dates that include TD Garden in Boston, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Patriot Center in VA, and Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden. Not counting pre-sales, tickets for all four of those East Coast February 2013 shows go on sale Friday, 11//9, at 10am.
Meanwhile the band plays two big shows in LA next week (one with Dirty Projectors, one with Dawes). All dates are listed, along with the band's new video for "Lover Of The Light" starring (and co-directed by) Idris Elba, below...
Smashing Pumpkins haven't announced a new date for their postponed Brooklyn Halloween show yet, but they have announced they'll be playing their cancelled NJ and and VA dates on 12/8 and 12/9. Four dates total are now postponed due to Sandy. They're all listed below.
Sandy can't stop Halloween (photo via)
We just posted the many NYC cancellations for tonight/Halloween (though more shows are still happening tonight than previous nights), and there's already a few cancellations being announced for Thursday (11/1).
The Meat Loaf show at Beacon Theatre, which was supposed to happen on Thursday has been postponed to a later date. An announcement on the new date is forthcoming.
Woodkid was forced to cancel his dates in NYC, San Francisco, and LA due to the hurricane and its effect on major airports. The NYC show was supposed to happen Thursday (11/1) at Irving Plaza and will be rescheduled to a TBA date. Tickets are refundable at the reseller.
As mentioned, the ESG show at Bowery Electric with Sinkane has been postponed to a later date TBD in December/January. The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black show that was moved to Thursday from Tuesday (10/30) has been cancelled.
As mentioned, all Dita Von Teese shows have been cancelled.
The Squarepusher, Bonobo (DJ), Holy Fuck, and Mount Kimbie show at Terminal 5 is still on, and there will be drink specials before Squarepusher's headlining set. Squarepusher just played Moogfest in Asheville over the weekend, but had to cancel other dates on the tour after that, including his show in Silver Spring, MD on Monday (10/29) and his Boston show tonight (10/31).
The Freelance Whales show at Webster Hall
is still on too, but with recent reports from ConEd about the power situation in lower Manhattan, it wouldn't be surprising if that show gets cancelled. UPDATE: Yep, postponed.
UPDATE: Todd Barry's show at the Bell House is postponed.
The Darcys were supposed to play Mercury Lounge on Thursday (11/1) with Rey Pila but it has been postponed to November 6.
The Tom Tom Club show at Brooklyn Bowl is still on as of this post (and looking good considering the Big Freedia Halloween show is going on as scheduled).
The Chris Gethard Show is presenting a show on Thursday at Littlefield called "Come Take A Ride With The Weirdest Bands We Know" that features Big Digits, Stumblebum Brass Band, Naked Heroes and Mindtroll. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Social Distortion were forced to cancel their show at The Chance in Poughkeepsie on Sunday (10/28), but their shows at Starland Ballroom on Thursday and Friday are still on for now
We're still keeping tabs on the status of Santos Party House and we'll let you know when we have more info. As of now, the show is still on with Wolf Gang, Alex Metric, The Royal Concept, and Atlas Genius. They tweeted "We're still sorting things out, cross your fingers and stay posted." Tickets are on sale.
Over at Carnegie Hall, the performance by the Orchestra of St. Luke's with conductor Nicholas McGegan that was to be in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 1 with soloist to be announced. And the performance by pianist Wael Farouk, that was to happen in Weill Recital Hall, has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 1. Tickets for both November 1 performances will be honored at their new date.
The Brooklyn Nets vs New York Knicks game at Barclays Center is postponed. New date: Saturday at 7:30pm.
We'll keep updating this post.
Smashing Pumpkins at Terminal 5 in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
After the parade, probably the biggest NYC Halloween cancellation is now Smashing Pumpkins at Barclays Center which officially has been postponed "due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Ticket holders should keep their tickets for an upcoming rescheduled date. We will announce more information soon."
Barclays Center has only been open for like a month and they've already racked up three cancellations. Green Day, who previously cancelled some stuff when they announced Billie Joe was going to rehab, has appropriately chosen the day of Hurricane Sandy to announce they're cancelling even more:
Green Day announced today they will cancel their club tour that was due to launch in Seattle at the Paramount Theatre on September 26th and wind down in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theatre on December 10th. Tickets for these clubs shows will be refunded at point of purchase. Additionally, Green Day will postpone all scheduled appearances for the months of January and February 2013. New dates for these rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates.The full list of cancelled and postponed dates (many with Best Coast), January 16th at the Barclays Center included, below....
"Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern," said Mike Dirnt. "We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can't wait to see you all again soon.
Green Day also announced they would move up the release date of Green Day ¡Tré! to December 11, 2012 from its original date of January 15, 2013.
"We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned," said Tré Cool. "If we couldn't be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing."
Like John Legend (who coincedentally cancelled way before we knew about a hurricane), Journey (the current version of them) and Pat Benatar will not be playing the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn this week.
Journey with special guests Pat Benatar featuring Neil Giraldo and Loverboy scheduled for October 30th at Barclays Center is cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy.Meanwhile tickets are still on sale for the Wednesday night Barclays Center Halloween Smashing Pumpkins show. UPDATE: Smashing Pumpkins postponed.
All on-line and phone credit card orders will be automatically refunded. Remaining refunds available at point of purchase.
Barclays Center (the night Rush played) (more by Fred Pessaro)
The New York Islanders will be leaving the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island and make their home the Barclays Center in Brooklyn starting with the 2015 season, NY1 has learned.Meanwhile the Nets already play there, as does Rush, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Neil Young and Bob Dylan.
The National Hockey League is currently in the middle of a lockout.

NY1 will carry the announcement live.
Rush at Barclays Center, 10/22/2012
Rush played last night at Barclays Center (10/22) as part of their steam-punk influenced Clockwork Angels tour. The Brooklyn crowd got a dosage of "rocket sauce", similar to the power trio's showing on Friday (10/20) at Prudential Center, a healthy balance of classic with later material. The setlist and pictures from the Brooklyn show, with all its rotating drum risers, ridiculous stage tchotchkes, multiple drum solos, and terrible video interludes, are in this post. Did I mention jaw-dropping instrumentation and great, great songs? More below...
Michael Bolton, who seems to have a good sense of humor about his crappy music, will star as himself in new sitcom Michael Bolton's Daughter Is Destroying My Life according to Deadline. Look for the new sitcom on ABC next year.

Babs at Barclays, 10/11/2012 (via @cpcayaba)
Barbara Streisand played her first of two, and first-ever Brooklyn show at the Barclays Center last night. Those in attendance missed the live Vice President debate, but still got a taste of politics at the show:
"I love Big Bird and I hope no one tells Romney how to get to Sesame Street ... or to Pennsylvania Avenue," cracked Streisand, according to the Huffington Post.Babs plays the new venue, that only Jay-Z played before her, again Saturday night.
Streisand also said of Romney: "He's a good actor. [He's] a chameleon. It's great."
Meanwhile: "Barclays Center VIP Lounge Issued Health Violation For Lack Of Toilet Paper."

Whoever told you that jaded New Yorkers act cool around celebrties, lied. Watch the YouTube video of Jay-Z commuting from Manhattan to his final Barclays Center show on Saturday, below...
Were you at Barclays Center, or were you one of the 50,000+ people streaming Saturday night's Jay-Z show on YouTube? If you answered 'yes' to either, or maybe because you already looked at Twitter, then you know that Jay, who kept special guests to a super minimum over the course of eight Brooklyn shows, brought out Beyonce to help end it in style. Literally - she played with him earlier in the show (Nets advertisement on her head included), and then returned to sing "Young Forever" with him to end the encore.
Jay-Z has announced that pre-orders are now being taken for a Live in Brooklyn "optic EP". That picture of Jay in the new "Carter" Nets jersey from one of his eight Barclays Center shows is apparently the cover art. And though iTunes is accepting $9.99, so far it only lists eight unnamed tracks and videos. Meanwhile. Jay plays his eighth Barclays show tonight (10/6), and as previously mentioned, you can stream it online.
UPDATE: The show happened
Also streaming tonight: Virgin FreeFest from Maryland, Jack White included.

Jay-Z @ Barclay's Center, 10/4/2012 (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Jay-Z, who kicked the eight-night run off back on 9/28, played his sixth show at the new Barclays Center last night (10/4, which we Instagrammed a bit, like the one above) and he'll play there again tonight (10/5) and Saturday (10/6). If you couldn't get tickets (or don't live near NYC) you can stream Jay-Z's final show (10/6) live via his new YouTube Channel at 9:30 PM EDT.
John Legend on National Voter Registration Day
John Legend says:
Hey beautiful people,John Legend was to be the first performer to play the Cushman & Wakefield Theater within the Barclays Center on October 29 which isn't happening now, and there doesn't appear to be any other "theater" shows on Barclays schedule for now. (though note: The Borgata Spa and Resort Event Center show in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday October 27, 2012 is happening as originally scheduled.)
I'm writing with a change of plans to share with you. As you all know, I've been working on my new album, Love in the Future, with Kanye and the rest of my creative team for a while now. I planned to release the album this Fall and go on tour to perform new songs from the album. We announced the dates before we'd finished the album because we were sure we'd finish the album in time. But, unfortunately, while the creative process has been exciting and I'm pretty certain we're going to deliver the best album of my career so far, the timing hasn't adhered to the schedule I originally envisioned. In other words, we're not done with the album. And my team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013* when we know we will have the new music done and will be ready to fully unveil the creative vision through the album and the live experience.
I've never postponed a tour or done anything like this before. I've only missed a show due to illness a couple times in my eight-year career. I don't like letting my fans down, and I sincerely regret disappointing the thousands of you who have already spent your hard-earned money and gotten excited to see the show. Please know that we will try our best to make the music and the 2013 tour well worth the wait. In the meantime, ticket holders can get a refund on your ticket purchases now.
Thanks for your patience. I sincerely apologize if I've let any of you down. I'm going to get back to work and make sure we make this album the "best you've ever had."
John Legend's tour opener was to be 2013 Mercury Prize nominee Lianne La Havas who is currently trying to put some headlining shows together in the wake of the tour cancellation. Stay tuned.
