Green Day postpones concerts
Green Day has announced it's canceling a club tour that was scheduled for the end of this year, and is postponing concerts scheduled for January and February, 2013.
That includes the show originally scheduled for February 2nd in Madison at the Alliant Energy Center.

According to a press release on the band's website, the show in Madison and the others in January and February will be rescheduled, and tickets purchased for those shows will be honored at the future dates. They say those dates should be announced soon.

The band acknowledges that the timing of this isn't ideal, but say the well being of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong is the most important thing. Armstrong entered rehab after freaking otu at a concert in Las Vegas in September.

Meanwhile the band says it has moved up the release of it's album Tre! to December 11th.

According to Green Day drummer Tre Cool, "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."

Rolling Stones Announce Tour
The Rolling Stones celebrate 50 years as a band this year, so there's been a ton of speculation about whether or not they'd do some kind of anniversary tour.

Just announced: the Stones will do a tour, sort of.  They're doing two shows in London at the O2 (November 25 and 29) and two shows in, of all places, Newark New Jersey at the Prudential Center December 13 and 15.

Tickets for the New Jersey shows will range from $95 to $750, and that's Ticketmaster prices....before the scalpers get their hands on them.

Here's hoping the band is in good spirits and good health, and has so much fun they decide to do a bigger tour next year.

Watch the Stones make the big announcement:

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

Blood Moon: reason to stay up late, or end of the world?
There's a preacher in Texas who's a little freaked out about tonight's lunar eclipse, and the three that follow every six months over the next two years. He thinks it's a signal of the end of the world!, and has even written a book...
