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:
