Jack White Tour 2012

After releasing the first single “Love Interruption” earlier this week from his upcoming album, Blunderbuss, Jack White has now confirmed his first three tour dates for 2012. First, he will appear at Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shore, AL on May 18th, followed by Sasquatch Festival in George, WA on May 26th, and then at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend in London on June 22nd-23rd.

Since stepping back from the spotlight with the Dead Weather, we wonder if White will want to endure a long grinding tour as the front piece. What do you think?

And if you haven’t yet heard, you can preview some of White’s new material – listen to “Love Interruption” from Blunderbuss below:

New Orleans Jazz Festival 2012 with Eagles, Foo Fighters, John Mayer, Tom Petty

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will feature The Eagles, Tom Petty, The Foo Fighters, and John Mayer among the hundreds of acts playing the festival in 2012. The party goes down across two weekends from April 27th to May 6th, and will be spread over a dozen (or so) stages.

With so much talent loaded onto this bill, it’s impossible to pinpoint just a couple featured acts. Al Green, Bon Iver, Herbie Hancock, My Morning Jacket, Iron & Wine, Feist, Florence + the Machine, and Jill Scott are all deserving festival headliners in their own right, but they represent just a fraction of the nationally recognized talent on this year’s packed festival lineup.

Festival producer Quint Davis said of landing The Eagles and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers:

They’ve been on our most in demand list for…

Warren Hellman, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass patron, Dies At 77

Warren Hellman, the prominent Bay Area philanthropist best known for sponsoring the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park since 2001, has passed away due to complications of leukemia at age 77, his family announced.

The festival, which has remained free to visitors for the past decade due to Hellman’s sponsorship, has expanded to bring in 300,000+ visitors annually over the course of the 3-day event. And Hellman ensured his generosity would carry on without him, creating an endowment to fund the festival after his passing. Patricia Hellman Gibbs, his daughter, confirmed Sunday: “yes, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival will go on!”

Just a week ago, Hellman learned of The San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission’s decision to rename Speedway Meadow, the heart of the festival grounds in Golden Gate Park, to Hellman Hollow in his honor. Has a great ring to it for Hardly Strictly 2012.

A7X Photo

Avenged Sevenfold  played at the Target Center in Minneapolis Minnesota on December 3rd, along with Hollywood UndeadAsking Alexandria, and Black Veil Brides. Our respect for A7X continues to grow ever since they announced a free concert for Bay Area fans to make up for their cancelled performance at Live 105′s Uproar Festival in Mountain View, CA.  Before their performance in Minneapolis, they received a request from a fan to sing along with them to “Second Heartbeat,”  and they made that fan very happy. Watch below:
