Duran Duran at SXSW (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Duran Duran have announced their All You Need Is Now US tour in pieces, taking to twitter, youtube, and everywhere in between to announce the fall dates. The trek will kick off in late September in California with opener Neon Trees and eventually make its way to Madison Square Garden on October 25th. Tickets go on AMEX presale at 8AM on Thursday (8/25) and regular sale on Monday 8/29 at 11AM.
Duran Duran released their latest LP All You Need is Now in late March of this year, and in honor of Duran Duran Appreciation Day (what?!? you didn't have your calendar's marked?!?) the band released the "Night Version" of one track, "Other People's Lives". Download that above, and check out a video for the title track from All You Need is Now below, beside all tour dates.
Bonnaroo (June 9-12 in Manchester Tennessee) has announced the 2011 lineup (slightly early), and like the rumored Lollapalooza lineup, Eminem is among the headliners. Bonnaroo also has Grammy winners Arcade Fire and the Black Keys, in addition to Lil Wayne, Mumford & Sons, the Strokes, The Decemberists, Florence & the Machine, Girl Talk, Beirut (haven't seen them in a while), and many more. Full list below...
After a couple of shows in Texas, The Drums (who recently lost a member) ("we are sorry to say that Adam has left The Drums. Jonny, Jacob and Connor are devastated") will kick off their tour with Surfer Blood on September 27th in Phoenix, AZ. That's the same tour that makes its way to Webster Hall in NYC on October 20th (a show that is also part of CMJ, and which will feature an opening set by The Dewars). That tour ends two days later, October 22nd, in Philly.
Eight days after that, on mischief night, the Drums will share a bill with Devo and Neon Trees at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. The "second annual RXP Halloween Concert" is on sale now (for the low low price of $55-with-fees a ticket).
For Devo, it's one of just three shows they have coming up at the moment. The other two are Moogfest and Fun Fun Fun Fest.
And speaking of Surfer Blood,
"According to a Brightest Young Things interview with Surfer Blood lead singer JP Pitts, the indie rock upstarts recently signed a record deal with Warner Bros. The group plan to release an EP on current label Kanine next year before making a jump to the majors with an as-yet-unscheduled LP to be released by Warners and Kanine." [Pitchfork]The Drums' debut, self-titled album was recently released by Downtown.

"The 2010 Lollapalooza line-up is official: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Phoenix will headline, joined by Social Distortion, MGMT, Jimmy Cliff, Hot Chip, and The Black Keys. With 130 bands on this year's bill, its sure to be a weekend long feast for the ears.After extremely accurate early leaks and then much teasing, Lollapalooza oficially announces this year's lineup. Check it out below...
It's a monumental year for Lollapalooza, filled with homecomings, reunions, and first-times. Soundgarden, 1992 and 1996 Lollapalooza alumni, return to the Lollapalooza stage for their first performance since 1997. Green Day will rock Grant Park sixteen years after their first Lollapalooza appearance. While Lady Gaga will headline the festival only three short years after playing the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2007.
Arcade Fire returns to Grant Park, having played the reincarnated Lollapalooza in 2005. This is the first Lollapalooza for The Strokes - and also their first show in four years. And making their Lollapalooza debut: Phoenix." - Lollapalooza
