BOB SEGER: Is the legendary rocker getting ready to hang it up?
t appears as though Bob Seger is offering up clues about his future -- and it's not good news for fans.
When he announced his show in September at DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan, it was advertised as "One Night Only." This was followed by the addition of a show at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn, Michigan, and that was billed as "The Last Time" he'll perform at the venue.
Now a video with a montage of photos showing him on stage while "Turn the Page" plays has been posted on his website, and in between the photos are the words, "One Last Time."
What we do know is that he'll tour in the fall and that an announcement on that is imminent. We'll just have to wait and see if "One Last Time" means a farewell tour, but Seger has always maintained that he'll call it quits when his voice goes out.
A few years back Bob Seger commented on when he'll know it's time to retire: "The second my voice starts to go, I'll be the first one out the door. But so far it's hanging in there pretty good."
AEROSMITH: Joe Perry is talking about their Aero-Vederci Baby! tour
Though Aerosmith have just a few years remaining in their performing career, Joe Perry says they no longer consider their Aero-Vederci Baby! tour to be their farewell outing.
He tells NME, "We thought it was going to be a good idea, when we first started plotting the European run. We were going to do South America and the States for five months, and we thought, ‘We’re getting near the end here.’ We all have lives outside the band... So we thought, ‘It’s time.’ [Then] we were doing interviews and we couldn’t say it. We were looking at each other going, ‘Are we really going to say, "This is the farewell tour?"’ So we kinda changed our minds."
Perry hopes things last at least until their 50th anniversary in 2020. They played their first concert in Mendon, Massachusetts on November 6th, 1970.
Until then, Aerosmith are on tour in Europe with a show in Krakow, Poland on Friday.
OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN: Cancer has returned
Olivia Newton-John's cancer has returned.
25 years after being treated for breast cancer, the singer-actress said Tuesday that it has metastasized to the sacrum, a bone in the lower back. She will undergo a combination of natural wellness therapies and a short course of photon radiation therapy.
After experiencing serious back pain, Newton-John postponed all her shows for May. We had a hunch the problem might be more than sciatica when her daughter Chloe Lattanzi asked fans to pray for her mom.
Olivia says she's confident of resuming her career "later in the year, better than ever, to celebrate her shows."
The announcement also includes the official postponement of her U.S. and Canadian concert dates for June.
