On the scene: Prince electrifies the Mohegan Sun Arena

Over the course of his long, storied, and downright weird career, Prince has proven he can make just about any room his home—from the teeny (dig his epic sets at New York’s tiny City Winery earlier this year) to the gargantuan (he played the greatest Super Bowl halftime show of the modern era in 2007—sorry, Beyoncé).

But the Purple One’s ideal stomping ground is an arena, which he proved yet again Friday night (December 27) when he stampeded through the first of three shows at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Those rooms are intimate enough for Prince to individually invite women onto the stage to dance with him, but also large enough to contain his royal histrionics.

Decked out in an all-yellow suit and situated behind a microphone stand bearing the glyph that once stood in place of his name, Prince treated the first night of his three-night stay like an old-school soul review. “We’re just gonna jam tonight,” he told the crowd while introducing the New Power Generation, and he lived up to his word. The early part of Prince’s two and a half hour set featured him teasing out extra-long versions of staples both classic (“Let’s Go Crazy”) and modern (“Musicology”), and vacillating between being a living avatar of James Brown and the greatest descendent of Jimi Hendrix.

The most remarkable thing about seeing Prince live is the fact that the guy is a ridiculously great guitar player (or, as one bearded dude said to another during the solo that highlighted “Something In the Water (Does Not Compute),” “That motherf—er can shred!”). His guitar heroics showed up early and often, especially on the slowed-down, Zeppelin-ized version of “Let’s Go Crazy.”

When he wasn’t melting his six-string, he was holding court as the ringmaster of a sprawling funk band whose numbers seemed to keep multiplying (there were at least 18 other musicians on stage). READ FULL STORY

Pixies to perform in Israel

An Israeli promoter for the Pixies says the band will perform in Israel next summer — four years after the band canceled a concert following a deadly Israeli raid on a pro-Palestinian Turkish aid flotilla to Gaza.

The Nidar Oz publicity group said Monday the Pixies canceled their 2010 concert because of the “tense security situation.” It did not elaborate why the band has decided to perform in Israel now.

A number of high-profile musicians have refused to perform in Israel due to its policies toward the Palestinians, including British rockers Elvis Costello and Roger Waters.

The Pixies’ website list an appearance with Soundgarden in Tel Aviv on June 17 and 18.

Enter Snowman: Metallica's next gig will be in Antarctica

Last month, Metallica crossed two more items off their collective bucket list when they released their first ever theatrical concert film and then headlined a show at the Apollo Theater in New York City. Now it seems they are going to hit a trifecta in 2013: The band announced yesterday that they will be playing a show in Antarctica.

“After over 30 years as a band, we have been unbelievably fortunate to visit just about every corner of the earth . . . except for one,” the group wrote on its official website. “That is all about to change as we are set travel to Antarctica, the only continent that Metallica has never played on until now!”

The show will be part of a contest through Coca-Cola Zero that is unfortunately only open to fans in a handful of Latin American countries (Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico) and will be the culmination of a week-long cruise. In addition to being staged on the Earth’s most desolate continent, it will also feature a new approach to performance that should make for some awesomely weird cell phone videos. “We’ll be playing inside a dome on the base and in another twist, the show will be transmitted to the audience via headphones with no amplification . . . a real first for us!” The show will also be streamed online, just in case you can’t go on a Metallica-themed cruise or don’t live in Costa Rica.

Metallica are no strangers to the cold—they headlined the extremely strange Molson Ice Polar Beach Party in 1995, which was held way up north in Canada.

The contest opens October 28, so if you’re in one of those above-mentioned countries, you can enter the contest here.

Here’s a question: What band would you literally go to the ends of the Earth to see?

On the Scene at Justin Timberlake's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' concert: This is what JT's sick day looks like

No one likes to go to work sick, but not all of us have 10,000 people expecting them at the office.

“I’m gonna need your help tonight,” an under-the-weather Justin Timberlake pleaded with the hordes of fans lining Los Angeles’ Hollywood Boulevard on Tuesday night for his Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor concert, especially leaning on them for “Mirrors.” “If I’mma do this, I need to hear everyone singing,” he instructed. “I don’t want to see you big-time me. I know this is Hollywood. F— all that.”

The crowd was all too happy to fill in the lyrics when Timberlake needed backup, but the six-song set mostly reiterated just what a pro JT is — in sickness and in health. While the TV audience caught a third of the performance, here are some highlights from our street view:

On the Scene at Paul McCartney's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' concert: Something old, something 'New'

When Paul McCartney and his Beatles bandmates performed an unannounced concert on a London rooftop in 1969 for their Let It Be film, the police eventually came in and shut it down. But McCartney and Jimmy Kimmel had the cops’ blessing Monday night in Los Angeles, as they took to the roof of the El Capitan Theatre, promising a free show from the one-and-only Sir Paul for the gathered masses.

Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! TV audience only caught two of those songs. After that, as McCartney told us when he hit the stage, “The rest is just for you.” Here’s what you missed if you weren’t one of the 10,000 people lining Hollywood Boulevard:

Katy Perry announces L.A. charity show with Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding and more

You’re gonna hear her roar — if you live within mic-amplification distance of the Hollywood Bowl, at least.

According to CBS’s radio.com, Katy Perry will headline a charity concert at the famed L.A. venue with a handpicked roster of female stars including Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding, Tegan & Sara and Kacey Musgraves.

“These are all very powerful women that I really respect and look up to,”  Perry told Carson Daly this morning on 97.1 AMP, ”and I wanted them to come together to promote this supportive message and have a  fantastic night full of great music. There’s so many great acts in this lineup. And I get to play a lot of songs off the record that will have come out the night before.”

Tickets for the Oct. 23 show, which will benefit the breast-cancer focused Young Survival Coalition, will  on Wednesday, Oct. 23, go on sale this Friday at 10am PST through Ticketmaster (or 10am on Sept. 24 through sponsor Citi, if you’re a card member).

Jack White, Marcus Mumford among performers at 'Inside Llewyn Davis' concert

Joel and Ethan Coen could not have picked a better time to make Inside Llewyn Davis, their hard-to-spell tribute to the folk rock of the 1960s that has come back to dominate the rock landscape in the 21st century.

As a tie-in to the film and a fundraiser for the National Recording Preservation Foundation, Jack White, Marcus Mumford, Joan Baez, and the Avett Brothers will perform at a special concert at New York’s Town Hall on September 29. The concert was put together by legendary producer and Inside Llewyn Davis music supervisor T Bone Burnett.

“We decided to do a concert to bring together the community that had done the music,” Burnett told the New York Times.  “So there would be some synergy between the music and the film.”

Burnett also wanted to bridge the gap between old school and new school, which is why the lineup includes upstarts like Conor Oberst, Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens, and Colin Meloy of the Decemberists, as well as Patti Smith and Gillian Welch. There will also be a performance by Oscar Isaac, who plays the title character in the film, which is loosely based around the story of folkie Dave Van Ronk. (The concert will not feature Inside Llewyn Davis actor Justin Timberlake, who’s scheduled to be in London that day.)

Inside Llewyn Davis will be released in theaters on December 6, while the soundtrack—co-executive produced by Burnett and Mumford and featuring a never-released Bob Dylan track—will hit store shelves on November 12.

Chris Brown concerts canceled in Canada

The promoter of four Chris Brown concerts in Canada scheduled this summer says the events have been canceled.

Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, said Monday that the decision was made after consulting with Brown and in light of his recent personal and health-related issues.

The R&B star had his probation reinstated Friday after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident. The hit-and-run charge was dismissed earlier.

Brown also suffered a seizure earlier this month.
