Mott the Hoople Reunion Tour Coming Back to U.S. in Fall (Exclusive)

Mott the Hoople’s spring reunion tour, their first in America in 45 years, brought joy to many fans in the U.S — and heartbreak to a lot more, as the group only played a handful of cities, concentrated mainly in the Northeast. Frontman Ian Hunter had indicated that might well be it for the reconstituted […]

Sunday night’s “This Is America” tour stop could have been seen as a funeral for Childish Gambino — the musical alter-ego Donald Glover has said he’s retiring after this tour and forthcoming album — but that doesn’t mean it was a somber occasion. On the contrary, Gambino put on a show at Los Angeles’ the […]



Sarah Brightman Returns from Space Training for New Album and Tour: ‘I Needed to Earth Myself’

Sarah Brightman is making an astronomical landing with her fifteenth studio album Hymn.

After spending months in Russia training for a trip to outer space that she postponed in 2015, Brightman, 58, opened up to PEOPLE exclusively about the creation of her newest album and the planning stages of her tour.

“I needed to earth myself,” says the soprano singer. “I said I would like to do an album of songs which are full of light, full of hope. Songs that remind me of when I felt safe and familiar with things in my childhood when I sang in my church.”

“If I don’t use and I don’t convey my feelings through it, I feel depleted,” she added. “I don’t function very well and that’s the beauty of having a gift like a voice. You sort of know what to do. You know what direction to take, you know that you want to communicate through it.”

Brightman, who shot to fame after star-turning roles on Broadway musicals Cats and Phantom of the Opera, linked up with producer Frank Peterson for the album-creating process. What came out of two-and-a-half years of planning and recording was the dynamic, choir-filled album, Hymn, out on Nov. 9.

“ is about looking into the good in things because I do believe that good prevails always,” she said, adding that the word “positivity” would describe her album.

“I did experience huge amounts when I was in the space program that actually how precious everything really is on this beautiful planet and how precious that is,” she added.

Now, the “Time to Say Goodbye” vocalist is ready to take Hymn on the road later this fall for a tour that’s “going to be quite beautiful.”

“I have a lot of energy. I tend to before I go on these tours, I become more energetic,” she says. “You create a power for yourself which will protect you because when you go on tour you’re dealing with the hardship of jet lag and moving around continually.”

The “Angel of Music” singer says her set on tour will be divided into two halves. The first will feature a more retrospective aspect to Brightman’s music, which will look like “somebody who is going to the ballet or the opera.” The second will be a bit more modern and feature most of the songs off Hymn.

“I’m wearing all these amazing runway gowns, which I’ve made a little more theatrical by adding things to them. Stones, crystals, all sorts of stuff,” she says. “I’ve got a big choir behind me. Up really high. I’ve got an orchestra on one side, a band on the other side and myself in the middle.”

Brightman’s album is filled with collaborations with artists like French tenor Vincent Niclo on single “Sogni” and Japanese composer Yoshiki on the emotional “Miracle.”

“ is a really interesting guy and we got along very well,” she said. “It was a very interesting collaboration with Japan’s most famous rockstar writing a beautiful contemporary classical piece.”

Along with the collaborations, Brightman’s album jumps from classical and cinematic music to pop rhythms in a cohesive album threaded by its spiritual nature. The album also takes fans back to one of her most famous classics “Time to Say Goodbye” with Andrea Bocelli, which she recreates in a touching English rendition.

“I wrote the lyrics for it but they were very much inspired from the original Italian lyrics when translated,” she said. “It’s quite a grand song, it’s almost like an opera song, but I wanted to do this in a very intimate way.”

Fans can purchase tickets for “Hymn: Sarah Brightman in Concert” through her website.

EXCLUSIVE: Swarovski Partners With Sarah Brightman for Her ‘Hymn’ Album, Tour

In order to make the classical soprano singer Sarah Brightman shine just a little bit more on her “Hymn” tour next year, Swarovski has teamed with the English crossover artist on a collection and partnership.
The approach to this link-up is multitiered. Swarovski and Brightman created a line of unisex and bespoke jewelry that will be available for purchase at Brightman’s concerts and online; plus, the company applied more than 600,000 Swarovski crystals to the costumes — and a custom tiara, which Brightman co-designed — she’ll wear on tour. A limited-edition version of her new album “Hymn,” customized by Swarovski, will also be for sale, replete with exclusive bonus content.
As part of her involvement with the design and consultation process, Brightman traveled to the brand’s headquarters in Wattens, Austria, to check out the corporate archives and gain further inspiration for her collection.

“I wanted to create something the fans would feel a natural connection to, and capture the essence of the show experience,” said Brightman, who’s known for donning otherworldly and lavish costumes when she’s on stage.

Southern Tide Sponsoring College Tailgate Tour

Southern Tide is cozying up to the college crowd.
The Greenville, S.C.-based coastal-inspired brand will kick off a Tailgate Tour on Sept. 7, where it will travel to six colleges around the South to engage with students and alumni during some of the schools’ biggest college football games.

Shakira Taps L.A. Designers as ‘El Dorado’ Tour Hits Stateside

Seven years have gone by since Shakira last toured, but her bold and sexy attitude hasn’t changed.
Ahead of a Los Angeles stop on her “El Dorado” tour Aug. 28 and 29, the Colombia-born singer has recruited L.A.-based designers Juan Carlos Obando and Brian Lichtenberg to create custom pieces for her show.
“Shakira is bold, powerful and very rock ‘n’ roll, so her wardrobe always reflects that,” said Marjan Malakpour, her go-to stylist for nearly 10 years. “She has so many hits, we definitely put a lot of work into creating standout looks that coincide with every song on her set list.”
Malakpour, who helped her create the famous “Hips Don’t Lie” look, has shaped Shakira’s signature look, often described as rock glamazon and mainly consisting of garments that are ripped and provocative.
With a total of six outfit changes that complement both the old and new music, Shakira dons stop-and-stare looks that range from glam rock to traditional belly dancer. The former look is channeled via a customized Balmain T-shirt adorned with Swarovski crystals and paired with custom patch leggings from Lichtenberg. The latter hinges on a custom Laurel Dewitt chain skirt that the singer and Malakpour designed together. The custom gold floor-length Obando dress pays

Shania Twain Takes Fans Behind-the-Scenes at the Making of Her Now World Tour

Shania Twain is pulling back the curtain on her acclaimed Now Tour.

The singer and reigning queen of country pop is currently touring the country on the North American leg of her world tour — which kicked off in May and will run through August before heading overseas.

So how’d it all come together? Twain and company tell all in a new mini-documentary that PEOPLE is premiering exclusively.

In it, fans can see everything from the rehearsal process to opening night in Tacoma, Washington.

“I’m very excited to get the tour on the road,” Twain, 52, says in the clip. “Once we get in front of the audience and they go, ‘Yay,’ it makes every day interesting and worthwhile.”

Rob Sinclair, Twain’s creative director, says that the singer is “particularly good” at knowing what she wants.

“It’s been really fun to see how we can match the old classics that people are familiar with and then how we stage these news songs to help introduce them,” he says. “It’s a completely new show, totally different from anything you’ve ever seen from Shania Twain before.”

Helping that along are multiple oversized LED boxes, some of which send singers, band members, and Twain herself soaring up in the air.

“It’s complete insanity,” says guitarist Joshua Ray Gooch. “I’m not a fan of heights. They sent me up to the highest point. Shania is up really high as well. I don’t know how she’s doing it.”

Train released her latest album, Now, in September. The 12-track LP debuted on at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It was her first new album in 15 years.

Singles of the record have included “Life’s About to Get Good” and “Swingin’ with My Eyes Closed” — the later which Twain premiered on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Twain has won five Grammys and remains the top-selling female country artist of all time, with more than 90 million albums sold worldwide.

Her Now Tour will play the Budweiser Gardens in London, Canada on Tuesday.

Nicole Miller Designs Tour Outfit for Kelsea Ballerini

Kelsea Ballerini has upped her fashion game for her new headlining tour.
The singer, who was the first female country music artist to have a number-one hit with her debut single, “Love Me Like You Mean It,” has turned to Nicole Miller to create two custom pieces for her “Unapologetically” tour.
“Unapologetically” is the title of her second studio album and she’s touring this spring with Walker Hayes as the opening act.
“I met Kelsea several years ago and was very impressed by her poise and self-confidence,” Miller said. “I knew she would be hugely successful. I’ve been dressing her for a variety of performances ever since. It’s been a lot of fun designing for her because her style is so adventurous. Not to mention, I am a big fan of her music and have been fortunate enough to see her perform. 
“Kelsea wanted me to design something for the first few songs of her album, which represents loss. I wanted to stay true to the theme, while creating something unique that she would feel confident wearing. I designed a custom black sequin trench that she loved so much she asked for a second version, which we made in pink. She now wears that

Omarosa Manigault Gave Her 39-Person Bridal Party a Tour of the White House Before Her Wedding: Report

Omarosa Manigault, an assistant to president Donald Trump and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, brought her 39-person bridal party to the White House for an extended wedding photo shoot, Politico reported Tuesday.

The 43-year-old former Apprentice star married husband John Allen Newman on April 8 at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C.

Four unnamed White House officials told Politico that prior to her nuptials, Manigualt staged an “extended wedding photo shoot” at the White House in her bridal attire — something that caught “fellow senior aids and some security officials” by surprise as “some lawyers and other senior aides were not briefed in advance.”

Her visitors were said to have “loudly wandered around” the Rose Garden and West Wing, sources told Politico.

Manigault was banned from posting the pictures online, Politico reports, with White House officials citing security and ethical concerns. It’s unclear whether she received formal permission for the photo shoot ahead of time.

Reps for Manigault did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Sources told Politico that Manigault has been seen as “a particular problem” in the Office of Public Liaison, citing a heated appearance at the National Association of Black Journalists conference in New Orleans in August. Politico reported that Manigault also stoked a mini-controversy in June by signing invitations for Congressional Black Caucus members to meet Trump as the “Honorable Omarosa Manigault,” which aides told the site became “a punch line in the White House.”

Politico also reported that Trump “continues to like Manigault.”

As fans know, Manigualt rose to fame in 2004 as a contestant on Trump’s reality TV show. Though he ultimately fired her, the two remained on good terms — with Manigault returning for a Celebrity Apprentice season. She later served as a prominent Trump surrogate and his director of African-American outreach during his presidential campaign.

Before her wedding, Manigualt celebrated a bridal going away party with her White House co-workers, including Kellyanne Conway.

5 Unexpected Things We Learned On The ‘Harry Potter’ Studio Tour

You can go to London without visiting the Warner Bros. studio, where cast and crew brought J.K. Rowling’s expansive magical world to the screen. But if you’re a Harry Potter” fan, you really shouldn’t.

HuffPost had the pleasure of touring the corners of Hogwarts and beyond that have been carefully set up for fans to lovingly gaze at, obsessively photograph, and even consume ― the Butterbeer is delicious ― in Leavesden, England.

Awash in “Harry Potter” nostalgia, we walked through the Great Hall, where professors McGonagall and Snape stand at attention on either side of Dumbledore. We peered into the surprisingly compact Gryffindor common room and brushed by the magnificent Fat Lady, sans password. We saw Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letters strung up to cloud the Dursleys’ living room with a flurry of paper whizzing motionless out of the fireplace. We nipped into the Hogwarts Express, where cars representing Harry, Ron and Hermione’s many years of rides are littered with candy wrappers, books and copies of the Quibbler. We admired a wall of newspapers, envelopes, cereal boxes and every other array of printed prop, all blessed with the wizarding world’s unique typography that screams in block letters at one turn and appears calmly serifed at another. We passed the Knight Bus and the infamously well-manicured Privet Drive. We forgot our Put-Outer, so the street remained illuminated. 

In a new section of the studio, we witnessed the Whomping Willow in destructive action and strolled along a trail through a forest full of meticulously handcrafted trees that obscure one special hippogriff and too many arachnids. And that’s not even half of all we saw.

Among the many bits and bobs along the way, we picked up some trivia on the “Harry Potter” film series. Our list doesn’t give away everything to be discovered on a visit, and certainly can’t replicate the whimsical wizarding atmosphere culled from the thoughtful work of prop developers and costumers over 10 years of filming. Nevertheless, we’ve shared a few pieces of knowledge below. 

1. Some of the Hogwarts castle portraits actually depict muggles.

Although the depth and breadth of Rowling’s wizarding world could surely have produced enough famous magical faces to fill the halls of Hogwarts ― the set included nearly 350 enchanted portraits ― producers allowed many of the film’s crew to pose for portraits to fill in the gaps. On view, for the sharp-sighted, are Barry Wilkinson the prop master, David Heyman the producer and Stuart Craig the production designer, among others. All look as if they know just the precise way to inflect “leviosa.”

2. There’s a picture of a young Professor McGonagall hanging in the Gryffindor common room.

Her dark hair is greying, and she displays a very prim expression, gazing slightly down her nose at the painter, but the witch pictured bears only a slight resemblance to Dame Maggie Smith. Or the witch described in the book, with her affinity for emerald green and tartan robes; this McGonagall is in blue, with a gold pendant around her neck. (Yes, you’ll have to make a visit to see her.)

3. Some of the potions ingredients in Snape’s classroom are actually zoo souvenirs. 

Professor Snape is a closet fan of muggle zoos, it seems. Among the more than 500 of bottles stashed along the walls of the dungeon classroom, some with handwritten labels, are plastic animals from the shop at the zoo in London’s Regent’s Park. That’s a significantly cuter way to illustrate pickled animals, like the ones the dungeon is meant to house, than some of the other things in those jars ― namely, baked animal bones from a nearby butcher. 

4. 15,000 glowing prophecy orbs were trashed because director David Yates changed his mind.

Well, not trashed, exactly ― you can see them displayed on the tour. The dusty glass orbs were created to illustrate the Ministry of Magic’s luminescent Hall of Prophecy that contained records of foretold events, including the prophecy made by Professor Trelawney about a child with the power to defeat Voldemort. The props weren’t used in the film, though, because Yates ― who directed “The Order of the Phoenix,” “The Half-Blood Prince” and both “Deathly Hallows” installments ― decided to use CGI to create them. They might’ve been destroyed anyway in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, but imagine being those prop designers.

5. In certain scenes, Hagrid’s head is fake. 

One of the more eerie behind-the-scenes revelations is seeing the bodiless head of Hagrid ― complete with artful wrinkles, rosy veins and individual eyebrow hairs ― that the prop department made for tall stunt doubles portraying him in action scenes and wide shots. Filmmakers used this and many other tricks to make the lovable half-giant appear so much larger than life: Another had Robbie Coltrane, who is only 6-foot-1, seated at a split-level table, one higher and nearer the camera and one lower and further away, to achieve a forced perspective effect that made the actor appear huge across from his companion. You can try it out for yourself on the tour ― photos encouraged.

Tickets can be found on the “Harry Potter” Warner Bros. Studio Tour website.

From June 1 to 30, HuffPost is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the very first “Harry Potter” book by reminiscing about all things Hogwarts. Accio childhood memories.

WATCH: Ariana Grande Reprises ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ as She Resumes Dangerous Woman Tour

Ariana Grande‘s inspiring cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” has become a permanent part of the singers’ Dangerous Woman tour, which resumed on Wednesday night in Paris — more than two weeks after it was suspended following the deadly Manchester terrorist attack.

The 23-year-old star took the stage at the AccorHotels Arena for a high-energy return, making her way through hits like “Problem,” “Side to Side,” and “Break Free” — with boyfriend Mac Miller even joining her for “One Last Time.”

But towards the end of her show, she stripped away much of the stage theatrics to perform the emotional “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” — smoking filling the stage and the logo to her One Love Manchester benefit concert (a ribbon with the singer’s signature bunny ears on top) simply behind her.

The crowd appeared to be equally moved by the song on Wednesday as they were at Sunday’s One Love Manchester concert, where she first premiered the cover of the Wizard of Oz tune.

The star-studded charity concert in Manchester was held in honor of the 22 people who were killed and more than 100 who were injured on May 22 after a suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device minutes after her concert ended.

Performers from Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Niall Horan, Robbie Williams, the Black Eyed Peas, Marcus Mumford and Katy Perry joined Grande to raise $ 13 million for those affected.

A live recording of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” captured at One Love Manchester has been released on multiple streaming platforms as a charity single, with all proceeds going to Manchester victims. The singer also released a 39-song One Love Manchester album, now available on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and etc.

Adding the track into her set for the remainder of Grande’s tour is just one of the ways she’s continuing to honor the victims of the attack. On Wednesday before her show, the singer instagrammed a message to fans saying that she’d be “thinking of our angels every step of the way.”

After the concert, she captioned a photo of herself performing, “Merci, Paris Je t’aime. Grateful to be back.”

Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour was originally postponed to “further assess the situation and pay proper respects to those lost,” the singer’s management previously told PEOPLE in a statement.

Continued tour stops are scheduled throughout Europe for Grande in June, with South America following in July and Japan and Australia among set destinations in August.

Chris Rock Gets Brutally Honest About His Cheating And Divorce On Tour

Chris Rock is opening up about his divorce, both on and off the stage.

Currently in the middle of his first nationwide tour in years, Rock sat down with Rolling Stone and shared candid details about his divorce from Malaak Compton-Rock, his wife of 19 years. The pair announced their separation in February 2014 and finalized their divorce, which included a custody battle, in August 2016.

Rock jokingly says he’s on the “alimony tour,” Rolling Stone’s Stephen Rodrick writes.

In his article, Rodrick describes how the comedian brought up his divorce during a show in Denver and described his infidelities:

“’I was a piece of shit,’ says Rock as the crowd goes quiet. He segues into his infidelities and gets disarmingly specific, describing three women: one famous, one semifamous, and one a member of the retail class.

Later, Rodrick writes:

“Rock mentions in his act that he thought he could get away with bad behavior in his marriage because he was the famous breadwinner. He now knows the opposite is true. ‘That’s bullshit,’ he says, rolling his eyes. ‘That actually goes the other way. My faults are magnified. Your significant other, if they really love you, has a high opinion of you. And you let them down.’

Rock also told Rodrick that while he talks about his divorce during his act, he’s toned it down ― because it’s unfair that he has a microphone and his former wife does not.

“I asked myself, ‘Do I want to be angry for a year?’ It’s not a cool place to be. It’s not healthy,” Rock said.

You won’t find any online videos of Rock’s candid comments, because his “Total Blackout” tour asks audience members to store their phones and other devices in secure pouches that are only unlocked at the end of the show. But the star recently inked a two-special deal with Netflix and plans to tape one of those specials in December.

Rock has been known for his searing commentary on married life, famously saying, “Marriage is so tough, Nelson Mandela got divorced — he got out of jail after 27 years of torture, spent six months with his wife and said, ‘I can’t take this shit no more.’”

Ryan Adams Gives Us Something Good With ‘Prisoner’ Tour

Signs warning against the use of flash photography were plastered on almost every door at the Beacon Theatre Tuesday night, as Ryan Adams was set to take the stage for his first New York City show on his extensive Prisoner tour.

Adams has Meniere’s disease, an inner ear disorder that can cause a range of symptoms including vertigo, nausea and hearing loss. Flashing lights lead the singer to experience imbalance and can perhaps cause seizures, so a tour manager once again reminded the sold-out crowd to turn off their cameras’ flashes before his set began. 

Not only did this make Adams’ experience better, it changed the entire vibe of the show for the audience ― in the best way possible.

The stage was decorated with old-school TV monitors of all sizes, huge Fender speakers and stuffed tigers. A Tiffany-style lamp sat near the piano with a coat rack close by. The mood was intimate, as Adams would sing some of the more somber songs off his new album “Prisoner,” a combination of “breakup” tunes which he says are associated with the end of his marriage to Mandy Moore and the desire to move on.  

The audience stood and cheered while he opened the night with his rock ballad “Do You Still Love Me?” There were no flashes, no cameras in your face. Adams’ fans were actually taking in the moment rather than documenting every second of it ― a welcome change in the current tech-crazy world we live in.

‪SET LIST. NYC. The Greatest City in the World. ‬ ‪@BeaconTheatre Night 1 ‬

A post shared by Ryan Adams (@misterryanadams) on

The rest of the show was equally as personal, with people singing along to the lyrics of “To Be Young (Is to Be Sad, Is to Be High),” “Gimme Something Good,” and “New York, New York,” which Adams performed solo with a guitar and harmonica. (Lots of girls, and guys for that matter, “woo’d.” And “ooh’d” and “ahh’d.”)

Adams has a way of hooking you in while barely speaking. He’s not the type of artist who’s going to talk to the crowd after every single song, cracking jokes while explaining why or how he wrote something like “Come Pick Me Up.” Yes, he throws out some one-liners here and there ― and introduces his backing band in an entertaining bit ― but clearly it’s all about the music, atmosphere and set list for him.

Although Tuesday night didn’t include a performance of any of his “1989” covers ― “Welcome To New York” would’ve been a nice addition, no? ― or his gloomy radio single “To Be Without You,” the artist made sure to give his NYC fans what they wanted: pure Ryan Adams, lyrical storytelling through that rugged, emotive voice. 

Amen, man.

Alessandro Michele’s A Magazine Exhibition to Tour China, Taiwan

GRAND TOUR: Those who missed flipping through one of the 10,000 copies of Alessandro Michele’s whimsically curated edition of A Magazine last November, will get a second chance. The magazine is traveling to Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan in the form of an exhibition.
Premiering from March 22-26, the show’s Hong Kong edition combines the work of the Gucci creative director and that of the photographer and it-girl Petra Collins, who is hailed as one of the strongest rising female forces in the industry. Collins will be in town for its debut, which coincides with Art Basel.
The 280-page magazine featured Michele’s cast of famous friends, including Florence Welch, Madonna, Annie Leibovitz and Hari Nef offering their take on the theme, Blind for Love. There were nude photos of the actress Chloë Sevigny, a polaroid of Dakota Johnson as a heartbroken teenager, and Nef body-painted to resemble a cherub.

Lady Gaga Announces World Tour After Amazing Super Bowl Show

Lady Gaga is ready to own the summer. 

After performing a medley of her biggest hits for the Super Bowl LI halftime show on Sunday night, Gaga announced her Joanne World Tour that kicks off Aug. 1 in Vancouver. The “Million Reasons” singer will stop in Los Angeles, Boston and New York before heading to Europe and looping back through the United States.

Tickets will go on sale beginning Feb. 10.

“Joanne,” Gaga’s fifth studio album, was released in October. With songs like “Hey Girl,” the star speaks to empower other women and seeks to give a voice to marginalized groups, a focus she’s had throughout her career. 

“I became obsessed with writing their stories in musical form,” she told The New York Times. “It’s an endless proving of myself, that I really am a musician, that I have something to offer in the room. That women can be musicians, women can be rock stars, women can be more than an objectified idea of a pop star.”

Chris Rock Announces World Standup Tour In The Most Chris Rock Way

Chris Rock, already $ 40 million richer for a pair of upcoming Netflix specials, is about to collect even more coin on the road.

Rock announced his first stand-up tour in nearly a decade in a message posted to Facebook on Monday, and it proved way better than a traditional press release. The new tour, “Total Blackout,” will start in 2017 ― and yes, Rock knows it’s been a while. 

“First time in nine years, OK?” he says in the video, recorded at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. “Haven’t done it in a while. Been a little busy, you know, writing ‘Pootie Tang 3’ and everything.”

“But hey, it’s time,” he says.

According to TicketMaster, the American leg kicks off in Durham, North Carolina, on Feb. 14. Other stops include Denver, Minneapolis and New Orleans.

“I can’t wait to see you bitches!” Rock says. See the whole announcement below.
