In case you have not heard, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recently opened the doors to its libraries and archives located in a new four-story, $12 million building on Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, OH. The collection, catalogued over the last few years, includes more than 3,500 books, 1,400 audio recordings, photos, albums and covers, oral histories, scrap books, and 270 videos. A few of these music artifacts include personal letters from Madonna and Aretha Franklin and a 1981-82 video of the Rolling Stones tour. Library and archive Director, Andy Leach, has stated that they will be adding thousands more books and recordings and hundreds of videos will be added as previously stored items and new donations are catalogued. Leach went on to state the following:

“We hope to serve music scholars, teachers, students and the general public. We hope to see all of them here.”

Fans and scholars will not be able to check out items from the library or the archives, but anyone can use the library reading room to browse through books, listen to audio recordings and watch videos. A smaller archives reading room allows supervised access to certain cherished items.

Now is the time to go and enjoy the new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame libraries and archives as they were opened to the public with very little fanfare. They will most certainly be more crowded after April 9th when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hold their actual grand opening. It should be a grand affair!

Madonna will tour the United States in 2012.

In anticipation of the March 26th, 2012 release of MDNA, Madonna has announced she will (drumroll please!) … wait 8 months to go on a North American tour.

Yep, the good news is Madonna is touring, but not until the very end of August 2012. After her electrifying performance at the Super Bowl – which was somewhat upstaged by a stray middle finger – she’ll continue the sports theme, playing the stadiums of the Lakers, Yankees, and Celtics. Twenty bucks says she wears the hometown logo in all three towns.

It may seem like distant future, but don’t dally: tickets go on sale Monday, February 13th, 2012 at 10am PST, and you’d be foolish to think they’re going to last.

Madonna 2012 tour dates:

8/28 – Philadelphia, PA @ Wells Fargo Center
8/30 – Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre
9/1 – Quebec City, QC @ Plains of Abraham Site
9/4…
