Tour Dates – Lil Wayne and blink-182 Are Coming Together to Phoenix: Don’t blink twice at this one, folks, because we’ve got a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it announcement for a show that’ll be unblinkable to miss. There’s no Wayne you’re not going to want to be at this show, in fact you might just jump up and down 182 times with excitement.

Okay, now that we’re done with the awful puns, we can tell you that blink-182 and Lil Wayne have announced a co-headlining tour. Yes, really. blink-182, the biggest pop-punk band on the planet, and Lil Wayne, the rock star rapper responsible for “Uproar” and more, are coming to Phoenix. They’ll be at Ak-Chin Pavilion on Monday, August 5, with support from Neck Deep.

The two acts have released a mashup of “What’s My Age Again?” and “A Milli” on YouTube as a teaser for the tour.

Now, you may be thinking, “Wow, I like one of those things but not the other. Is this show really for me?” And it’s true, because as far as we know pop-punk fans and hip-hop heads don’t really go together. We can only imagine the kind of people you might meet at this show, and the kind of relationships that might be established. Can you imagine the couples that meet at the blink-182/Lil Wayne concert? Can you even fathom the wedding where the bride and groom walk down the aisle to “I Miss You” and have their first dance to “Lollipop?” Stranger things have happened. This could be the peanut butter and jelly mashup you’ve been waiting for your whole life.

System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian questions if fans really listen to their lyrics

Published

System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian has questioned whether or not fans listen to their lyrics.

Speaking on the Side Jams With Bryan Reesman podcast, Tankian said after looking at some fan’s comments on social media, he wasn’t sure if fans listened to the true message of the band’s lyrics.

He said: “When I get people on my socials that are, ‘I love your music, but I don’t wanna hear your political ideas,’ that’s fair enough — if they’re nice enough, it’s fair enough, but sometimes they’re really mean.

“But what I don’t understand, and a lot of other people that follow the music say the same thing. They’re, like, ‘Have you not listened to the fucking words in 20 years? He’s been saying all this stuff through his music all this time. What are you, just dancing to it because it’s groovy? You’re not really getting the message?’”

System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan last week hailed US President Donald Trump as the “greatest friend to minorities”, following the US president’s controversial response to the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

On Monday (June 1), Trump declared himself a “law and order president” in a press conference, and said that he would mobilise the US military to be deployed against protesters seeking justice over George Floyd’s death.

He also labelled those taking to the streets as “thugs”, adding: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” This tweet was subsequently censored by Twitter, who deemed its message to be in violation of the site’s rules surrounding “glorifying violence”. 

Dolmayan’s comments were at odds with those of frontman Tankian, who had previously claimed that the president’s “time has come”. “Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign,” he urged the protestors.

“Run Donny run into your bunker,” Tankian wrote. “You may be the first US President to do so out of fear of your own citizens… These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come.”

See Soccer Mommy’s rescheduled UK tour dates for 2021

Soccer Mommy

Soccer Mommy has announced new dates for her rescheduled UK tour in support of second album ‘Color Theory’.

The Nashville musician was due to bring the record to the music venues of the UK later this month, but was forced to postpone the shows due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, the indie star (whose real name is Sophie Allison) will return in 2021, kicking off a run of dates at London’s Electric Ballroom on February 18. She will then visit six more cities across England and Scotland, concluding at Leeds’ Belgrave Hall & Canteen. Tickets for the original dates remain valid for the new shows.

Soccer Mommy will play:

February 2021

18 – London, Electric Ballroom
19 – Birmingham, Castle And Falcon
20 – Brighton, Concorde 2
21 – Bristol, Trinity Centre
22 – Manchester, Gorilla
24 – Glasgow, Oran More
25 – Leeds, Belgrave Hall & Canteen

In a four-star review of ‘Color Theory’, NME said: “Allison is a master at painting vivid pictures with lyrics, coupling earworm melodies and warm instrumentation with shattering words that pack an emotional punch. The rich imagery that shone on ‘Clean’ remains a highlight of Soccer Mommy’s music; only this time it feels like Allison is delving into far more private subject matter.”

Meanwhile, the musician launched a new singles series last month, with proceeds going to Oxfam’s coronavirus relief fund. The Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series will see Allison team up with the likes of Beabadoobee, MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden and Beach Bunny, while she has already shared the project’s first collaboration with Jay Som.

Rupert Hine, producer for Tina Turner, Rush and Underworld, has died aged 72

Producer and songwriter Rupert Hine has died, aged 72.

With a career spanning over 50 years, Hine worked with artists including Tina Turner, Howard Jones, The Fixx, Rush and Underworld.

His death was confirmed earlier today by the The Ivors Academy, on which he was a member of the board. No cause of death has yet been released.

In a post on social media, The Ivors Academy wrote: “We are so saddened to post that our Board Director Rupert Hine has passed away.

“Rupert played an integral part in shaping the organisation, and his passion, wisdom, inspiration and his immense kindness will be hugely missed.”

Hine began his career as a musician in folk band Rupert & David as well as other bands including Quantum Jump and Spin 1ne 2wo. As a solo artist, Hine released six solo albums under the alias Thinkman.

It was his work as a producer, however, which brought him acclaim having worked with artists including The Fixx and Howard Jones at the start of his career.

Writing on Twitter, Jones said: “An extraordinary man and one of my dearest longtime friends, my music mentor and producer, passed away in the early hours of this morning.

“I’m so fortunate to have spent a precious hour with him Tuesday.”

Hine went on to help craft Tina Turner’s 1984 hit ‘Better Be Good to Me’ from ‘Private Dancer’. The song later earned a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance – Female.

Hine worked with Turner again on ‘Break Every Rule’ – a song he co-wrote and produced – and later on the album ‘Foreign Affair.’

You can see some of the many tributes to Hine below.

Other production credits for Hine include Stevie Nicks‘ ‘The Other Side of the Mirror’, Rush’s ‘Presto’ and ‘Roll The Bones’. He also worked with Bob Geldof, Underworld, Suzanne Vega, Ra and more.

Hine is survived by his wife Fay and son Kingsley.
