Liquid adrenaline manufacturer Red Bull has announced the lineup for the 2019 Red Bull Music Festival Los Angeles, which will focus nearly as much on sight as on sound.
Most notably, the multi-event program will feature the first live performance of music from the blockbuster action-adventure game “Red Dead Redemption 2.” It will be the centerpiece of a festival that aims to explore how music intersects with gaming, film and photography.
Attendees will experience live “Red Dead Redemption 2” performances by composer Woody Jackson, Indonesian duo Senyawa and others featured in the game in what’s billed as a reimagining of the score “as a unique auditory installation.”
The new trailer for “Captain Marvel” features a little something for everyone: additional details about the story, fight scenes in outer space and a cute cat.
The second trailer for the Marvel Studios film debuted Monday night, and it sends a clear message that Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, is the hero everyone has been waiting for. At least according to Disney.
While the first trailer hinted that Carol (played by Brie Larson) is trying to piece together what seems to be her forgotten past on Earth, this new promo provides more information about who she has become.
Bolstered by the success of the new biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen is going back on tour in North America next summer. And Adam Lambert will take the mic once again in place of the late Freddie Mercury, the band announced Monday.
The Rhapsody Tour will take place from mid-July to late August 2019 and feature (in the band’s words) 23 “giant shows.” They’ll play the Forum in Inglewood on July 19.
Tickets go on sale Friday, with pre-sale codes sent to fan club members and QueenOnline.com subscribers on Tuesday.
The docuseries “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” will debut in early January, MTV announced Monday.
The show chronicles Lohan — MTV labels her an “actress, influencer and entrepreneur” — in her efforts to launch her new Lohan Beach House in Mykonos. (She already has a nightclub in Athens and a beach club in Rhodes, Greece, and then there’s the thing where she’s taking over two islands off Dubai.)
“[W]hen the lines between romance, friendship, and work get blurred, the staff will quickly learn they’ll have to prove themselves to their toughest boss yet,” MTV said in its release, better than we ever could.
Halsey, who performed at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that aired Sunday night on ABC, posted a lengthy note on social media at the same time regarding the show’s perceived lack of trans inclusivity.
"I have adored the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show since I was young. Performing this year alongside other amazing artists, and hardworking models/friends was supposed to be the best night of my year. However, after I filmed the performance some comments were made regarding the show that I simply cannot ignore,” she wrote.
"As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I have no tolerance for a lack of inclusivity. Especially not one motivated by stereotype,” continued the 24-year-old singer, who is out as bisexual. She then directed followers to the GLSEN website and said she had made a big donation to the organization, which champions LGBTQ issues in K-12 education.
The Kennedy Center Honors, which once again were not attended by President Trump, included tributes Sunday night to the late former President George H.W. Bush, who died Friday at age 94.
“I think it’s appropriate to recognize the passing of a wonderful man who dedicated his life to service and who graciously attended this event many times during his administration, laughing, applauding, singing along and even shedding a tear from right up there in the presidential box,” host Gloria Estefan said to kick off the evening at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington.
She recalled being invited to the White House and how Bush “literally spent 45 minutes patiently talking to my 8-year-old son” about how government worked.
The Recording Academy said Monday morning it would delay its announcement of the 61st Grammy Award nominees to avoid competing with memorial services and public viewings for former President George H. W. Bush, who died Friday.
The organization had planned to announce nominees early Wednesday morning but will now share nominees in select categories on Friday at 5:30 a.m. PST via “CBS This Morning” and Apple Music.
A full nominations list across 84 categories will follow at 5:45 a.m. PST on Friday at Grammy.com — the academy’s website — as well as all of its social-media platforms.
