Garth Brooks will be back in stadiums in 2022, announcing his first Stadium Tour date for the new yea r will take place at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in April. The performance will be the singer’s first-ever show at the venue, which is home to the University of Arkansas Razorbacks, and his first show in Arkansas in over seven years. Brooks had previously scheduled a Stadium Tour run for 2022 in Dublin, Ireland, where he will play at Croke Park on September 9 and 10. Tickets are on sale for Garth in Arkansas beginning Friday, December 3 at 10:00 AM Central. All locations in the venue will be priced at $94.95, including all fees.The show is scheduled for Saturday, April 23. Tickets for the Croke Park performances are on sale Thursday. Brooks had been one of the first artists to get back to full scale touring during the reopening process in 2021, taking the stage beginning in July and urging other artists to “get back in the game” after the long COVID pause. He performed shows at stadiums through the rest of summer, but reassessed his touring plans as the number of COVID cases surged once again. In August, he decided to call off remaining 2021 stadium shows , cancelling dates in Boston, Baltimore, Charlotte, Cincinnati, and Nashville. Two of those shows had been initially scheduled in 2020 but postponed due to COVID in the first place, while Nashville was called off at the last minute due to lightning storms on its original date this summer, only to see its reschedule plans dashed by the COVID case rates. “The joy I have seen in everyone’s faces as live music returns has been more than worth our constant diligence to maintain safety protocols not only for the fans, but for our band, the crew and the hard working staff in these stadiums. Their dedication to safety for the people who fill those seats has been a miracle to watch and a blessing to receive. I am truly grateful.” Since that point, the singer has performed in more intimate settings, plotting some “dive bar” dates in the fall, as well as recent performances at Nashville’s Grand Old Opry and two nights at Ryman Auditorium. But hopes are high that the conditions will once again be right for the large scale Garth Brooks Stadium Tour dates in 2022, with Arkansas becoming the first on this side of the pond to make the calendar. Curiously, the announcement on Brooks’ website mentions the performance as the “only Arkansas & Oklahoma stadium appearance in 2022” – which seems to imply that a much more robust routing of shows is already deep into planning stages. Fayetteville, Arkansas is about a 40 minute drive from the Oklahoma state line. The post Garth Brooks Announces First U.S. Stadium Tour Date for 2022 in Arkansas appeared first on TicketNews .
A pair of security guards have joined the wide array of parties to have filed lawsuits in the wake of the Astroworld Festival tragedy, naming 28 parties in the complaint including Live Nation Entertainment, Travis Scott, Cactus Jack Records, and the security companies that were hired to staff the event. They allege that pre-event preparation was minimal and training was poor, leaving those on the ground ill equipped to do anything to prevent the crowded conditions that led to the serious injuries of hundreds and the deaths of ten festival goers. Samuel and Jackson Bush, an uncle and nephew who had been hired by AJ Melino & Associates to work security at the event, filed the lawsuit this week in Texas asking for more than $1 million in damages. They contend that they have suffered both physical and mental injuries from their working at the event, including having to pull an individual from the crowd who later perished. The lawsuit contends that AJ Melino & Associates “took very few measures to prepare its contracted employees for the chaos that ensued,” in Houston, failing to provide adequate training before the event and leaving those on the ground without walkie talkies or any other method to coordinate with event organizers in the event of any mishaps, which left them unable to react to the rapidly changing circumstances as Travis Scott and Drake took the stage and conditions worsened to the point where the deadly crowd “crush” occured. According to Jackson , the only instruction they were given was to show up wearing black. “For the most part, they told us where to stand, not to let people run in, and to be safe and not to put our hands on anybody,” he told reporters. “There was no training.” The lawsuit comes on the heels of critical comments regarding Live Nation’s security plans at the event by the Chief of Police in Houston, where the event was held. There were no protocols in place planning for how to react to an event such as the deadly crowd surge that occured, and had occured at similar events in the past, including a previous Astroworld Festival. Since the event, numerous lawsuits have been filed against Live Nation, Scott, and other entities related to the management of the Astroworld festival, which saw an estimated 50,000 fans in attendance at NRG Park in Houston. Live Nation in particular has absorbed serious criticism over its operation of the festival, owing to a pattern of serious injuries and deaths that have taken place at events it has managed in the past. One lawsuit is seeking $2 billion in damages, with another asking for $750 million . The wave of bad press has caused Live Nation’s stock (NYSE:LYV) price to dip to $112 as of Tuesday afternoon, following all-time highs of over $120 on the afternoon before the Astroworld Festival took place following a stronger than expected Q3 2021 earnings report . Its share price is still well above its all-time high prior to the earnings report, which had hovered at around $110 through mid-October. Its current price is more than 40 percent higher than LYV traded at one year ago, and almost three times what it was at the time of Saudi Arabia making a huge investment in the company during the worst depths of the COVID-19 pandemic, taking an estimated 5-6 percent ownership stake.

Justin Bieber is facing calls to cancel a planned concert in Saudi Arabia next month, led by the fiancee of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Bieber is one of several performers scheduled in free concerts surrounding the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix , a Formula 1 race scheduled for the first weekend in December. Bieber, A$AP Rocky and David Guetta are scheduled for Sunday’s performance, which will take place after the Formula 1 race finishes along the shores of the Red Sea in the Saudi city of Jeddah. Jason Derulo and Tiesto are also performing free shows, scheduled for after qualifying laps are completed on Saturday. Khashoggi was Saudi native and critic of the government living in exile when he was murdered while at the Saudi consulate in Turkey in October of 2018, allegedly at the behest of the country’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman. The actions led to international outcry and the indictment by Turkish officials of 20 Saudi nationals who were believed to have perpetrated the crime – though none have faced trial as they are no longer in the country. Saudi Arabia held trials for some involved, but those who were found guilty and sentenced to death were subsequently spared. Since that time, public pressure has often been mounted against performers who have scheduled events in the country, particularly those from liberal “western” democracies, such as Bieber, who hails from Canada. Bieber had already been facing calls to cancel his performance when the Washington Post published an open letter from Hatice Cengiz – Khashoggi’s fiance at the time of his murder – asking him to spike his appearance to “send a powerful message to the world that your name and talent will not be used to restore the reputation of a regime that kills its critics.” “Please know that your invitation to participate in a concert in Jeddah comes directly from MBS, as the crown prince is known,” Cengiz wrote in her open letter to Bieber. “Nothing of significance happens in Saudi Arabia without his consent, and certainly not an event as important and flashy as this.” Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund bought $500 million in shares in Live Nation Entertainment during the spring of 2020 while the stock (NYSE:LYV) was at a major low due to the coronavirus. That investment, which amounted to more than 5 percent of the company, made the Saudi government the third largest shareholder in the company, helping stabilize the stock price that has since soared to more than $100 per share – even amid the Astroworld Festival fallout of late. According to the Associated Press, the Saudi wealth fund’s holdings of Live Nation are now worth a sum of approximately $1.4 billion, making it the second largest institutional shareholder behind Liberty Media. Human Rights Watch has also been a voice calling for the performers to pull out of the performance , which it says is intended to “use these celebrities to whitewash its abysmal human rights record,” and paint it as a desirable destination for future events and tourist dollars.

StubHub scored a partial legal victory in a California court this week, convincing the judge in a lawsuit over its refund policy shift amid COVID-19 to move much of the legal action into arbitration rather than trial. United States District Judge Haywood S. Gilliam Jr. issued the order Monday from the Northern District of California, moving a large number of the Class Action claims away from open court. StubHub was sued last year after it changed its policies for events that had been cancelled due to COVID-19. Rather than giving consumers cash refunds in the event of a cancellation, the company switched to giving vouchers good towards the purchase of tickets to future events on the ticket resale marketplace. The only exceptions to this policy were in states that require a cash refund by law, leaving many consumers no option but the credit on the marketplace. StubHub has already settled some actions related to the policy shift, which came amid the companies ill-timed sale to Viagogo for $4 billion, which closed just before the pandemic shut down live events across the globe and was held up from being fully complete until this fall when the company agreed to spin off all but its core North American business to satisfy competition concerns brought up by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority. It agreed to a settlement of claims with the Attorneys General in nine states , meaning payouts of close to $20 million in refunds to more than 75,000 consumers. Putting fans first has always been central to the StubHub business,” a statement published by StubHub following the settlements reads . “Adjusting our refund policy for canceled events during the pandemic was a difficult decision, but a necessary one at the time. As soon as circumstances allowed, StubHub achieved its goal of providing impacted customers the choice to keep the 120% credit they were issued when their event was canceled or receive a cash refund. “We appreciate the patience of our customers, partners and regulators as we worked toward providing that choice, and we appreciate the ongoing dialogue with the states as we worked to formalize the actions StubHub voluntarily took beginning in May 2021 through this multi-state agreement.” In remaining claims, StubHub has maintained that users had agreed to a provision within its user agreement that required disputes to be settled via arbitration rather than civil court. Such clauses are how Ticketmaster has often saved itself from consumer litigation in the past as well, booting cases away from a forum where precedent regarding business practices could be set in an unfavorable fashion. In his order, Gilliam agreed that StubHub had properly notified consumers of the arbitration requirement in purchases that took place on its website, meaning that any consumers who purchased in that manner must see their claims moved to arbitration. However, those who purchased tickets via the company’s mobile ticketing app were not sufficiently notified of the clause, meaning their cases can continue. For those who still have their court hopes alive, the next hearing on the matter is scheduled for December 7, 2021.

Public Enemy frontman Chuck D pulled no punches in an open letter addressing the Astroworld tragedy. The rapper and orator berated the entertainment giant for not taking full accountability for the tragedy, instead allowing Travis Scott to shoulder a huge amount of public criticism for events that occured while he was on stage with Drake in front of a crowd of more than 50,000 people in Texas. “ Live Nation controlled this show,” he wrote. “They control almost all of the concert venues. Artists ain’t speaking out because these same cats are already bought by these corporations. No one can say a word against them unless they want to be Blacklisted and hurt their careers.” In perhaps the harshest criticism, he accused the “White Corporate Music Biz” of “cashing in on Black Pain, Trauma and Death.” “[Travis Scott is] being blamed for a crime while the old white men running the corps that Travis and his fans trusted with their lives stay quiet in the shadows, counting their money and watching their stock prices go up and up.” In the wake of the Astroworld tragedy – when fans packed tightly in general admission pens “surged” towards the stage and hundreds were injured including ten deaths – hundreds of lawsuits have been filed, including some seeking damages into the billions of the dollars for negligence . Live Nation’s security plans and dubious safety history have seen plenty of scrutiny, but Travis Scott has also been targeted in those lawsuits and subject to stories questioning whether or not he could have done more to make things safer, or at least stopped the concert earlier once it started to become clear that something was seriously wrong. To Chuck D, Scott’s culpability in the tragedy is a shell game – those who were in charge of making sure something like what happened shouldn’t have been possible, but other than a brief statement in the immediate aftermath of the debacle, they have said nothing and let the artist take the blame. “Travis Scott is a performer, an act, not a concert promoter,” he wrote. “He doesn’t run the sound or venues or festivals or their staff. He doesn’t build stages or coordinate logistics, he’s not an expert in crowd control or security or emergency medical services. But he does trust Live Nation and all the other concert promoters who are supposed to do all of this.” While Live Nation’s stock has taken something of a hit in the aftermath – it fell by around $10 from its high of $123 to around $113 after the event – it is still trading at near record-high numbers that reflect its nearly unassailable control over the entertainment business in the United States and greater world. The market may be unable to correct the corporate power that Live Nation currently holds, even in instances where it arguably cut corners in terms of audience safety. “This is a vertically integrated operation, where Live Nation often manages the artist, runs the venue, sells the tickets, and promotes the concert all at once,” wrote David Dayen in a prospect.org story linking the Astroworld tragedy to Live Nation’s dominance in the market. “Now, ask yourself just how much emphasis the company really needs to put on safety, given its dominance of the industry. If there’s a tragedy, will they credibly lose any market share? Will Ticketmaster no longer be the broker for that tour? Will the venue no longer work with Live Nation acts? There’s simply no possibility of disciplining Live Nation from a market forces standpoint for skimping on safety.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Chuck D 🎤 (@mrchuckd_pe) The full letter is included below: I cannot believe we’re at the point where I gotta say this out loud: Travis Scott is a performer, an act, not a concert promoter. He doesn’t run the sound or venues or festivals or their staff. He doesn’t build stages or coordinate logistics, he’s not an expert in crowd control or security or emergency medical services. But he does trust Live Nation and all the other concert promoters who are supposed to do all of this. And yet here we are, 10 deaths and counting. 10 broken families. The world is mourning. I’m tired of these corporations shucking their most crucial responsibility. These folks simply say Rest In Peace and move on. This negligence can’t continue. Folks want answers. I’m not buying the Young Black Man did it. He’s being blamed for a crime while the old white men running the corps that Travis and his fans trusted with their lives stay quiet in the shadows, counting their money and watching their stock prices go up and up. The excuse of Scott’s irresponsible actions don’t wash – if his act had a history of that behavior why promote him to bigger venues, why partner with him in the first place and let him headline a bigger audience? Live Nation controlled this show. They control almost all of the concert venues. Artists ain’t speaking out because these same cats are already bought by these corporations. No one can say a word against them unless they want to be Blacklisted and hurt their careers. So I am calling on Michael Rapino’s entire team at Live Nation and a consortium of all the major concert promoters out there to do the right thing. To step up and step out of the shadows to fix these situations and save lives. To stop letting one Young Black Man take the blame, the hate, the fall. We don’t know everything that happened or exactly what failed. But concert promoters have all the power to make the changes to keep everyone safe and alive. Live Nation, your stock is up. The White Corporate Music Biz keeps cashing in on Black Pain, Trauma and Death. This has to stop yesterday. You’re part of the problem. Grow the fuck up, fix this and let us all LIVE in PEACE. -Chuck D 3d The post Chuck D Rips Live Nation for Trying to Dodge Astroworld Blame appeared first on TicketNews .
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss announced tour dates for 2022, with plans to perform on both sides of the Atlantic from June through the end of July. The duo will be out in support of their new album Raise the Roof, their second collaborative album. The tour is their first together in more than a decade. Tickets for Robert Plant & Alison Krauss are on sale this week for dates in the EU and UK, then next week for U.S. stops. Both runs have a general on sale date of Friday, with EU/UK tickets available November 26 and U.S. dates December 3. Presales for EU/UK dates begin on November 24, with presales for U.S. dates beginning on November 29. The duo first performed together in 2007’s Raising Sand, a record which won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year. The English blues-rock legend (who was the vocalist for Led Zeppelin on the off-chance that isn’t known to all) and the American bluegrass/country favorite formed an unexpected but harmonious combination in their pairing, likening their appeal to that of the lead characters on “Mork and Mindy – different, but working well together. “Alison and I have something – theoretically – to live up to, as far as how it worked out before,” Plant told The Guardian . “But the most important thing to do was maintain a really interesting variety of sources of song. Because what do we do in our quietest times, when we have a music machine? We go to places that really, really make us feel good.” Plant & Krauss kick off their tour in the United States, performing on June 1 in Canandaigua NY. Other stops include Chicago, Philadelphia, and Atlanta before the tour heads overseas for a June 26 spot at BST Hyde Park in London. Other European dates include Bergen, Norway, Lucca, Italy, and Berlin, Germany.

Kanye West, now formally known as “Ye,” announced that he and Drake would be anchoring a “Free Larry Hoover” benefit concert in Los Angeles on December 9. The performance will “raise awareness and support for Larry Hoover and the cause of prison and sentencing reform,” according to the concert announcement on the website of the LA Coliseum . The concert is scheduled for December 9 at the Los Angeles Coliseum . Tickets go on sale beginning Monday, November 22 at 10AM, Pacific Time. The ticket link for primary sales is available here. “I believe this event will not only bring awareness to our cause but prove to people how much more we can accomplish when we lay our pride aside and come together,” says Ye. Larry Hoover has been in prison since 1973, originally convicted of murder. While in prison, he was allegedly still a gang leader, but by the early 1990s, claimed to have renounced his criminal past. In 1995, a lengthy undercover operation by federal authorities led to charges of drug conspiracy, extortion, and continuing to engage in a criminal enterprise, charges for which he was found guilty in 1997, leading to his current incarceration at a maximum security facility in Colorado. Ticket prices for the Free Larry Hoover benefit concert have not yet been announced, but rumors have surfaced that the prices may be starting at a figure as high as $500 per ticket, which would mean a total gate in excess of $20 million. In a benefit performance, that would mean that much of that amount – proceeds of the tickets and service charges, less the hard costs of the production, with the venue itself being a donation rather than rented, and the performers playing for free. No specific details regarding the actual charitable organization (or organizations) that would be beneficiaries of such funds after the performance. Several organizations are linked under “Information and resources” on the event page on the coliseum website: INNOCENCEPROJECT.ORG REFORMALLIANCE.COM THEDREAMCORPS.ORG/OUR-PROGRAMS/JUSTICE FAMM.ORG ALLIANCEFORSAFETYANDJUSTICE.ORG ANTIRECIDIVISM.ORG BURIEDALIVEPROJECT.ORG FLORIDARRC.COM SENTENCINGPROJECT.ORG Ye and Drake had been embroiled in a lengthy feud, trading shots over a span of several years, but have recently put that behind them, and are set to take the stage in LA next month. “Bringing these two great artists together for the culture and the cause of prison reform has been an honor,” J Prince said in a statement with the concert announcement. “Through my work with Larry Hoover and his family, i’ve really had my eyes opened to the plight of incarcerated people in this country, and I hope fans of Ye and Drake will take the time to do the same.” We’ll update with additional information when it is available.

If you’re anything like us, you might have been expecting news about Adele and a new tour to drop on Friday, as her new album “30” was formally released. But thus far – nothing. The singer’s fourth studio album is out, and has already climbed to the top of the charts, but so far, Adele’s tour plans go no further than her one-off performances next summer at BST Hyde Park . Though she hasn’t formally ruled anything out, Adele did throw water on the idea of touring on this new album in an interview with John Mayer on SiriusXM. “This album? No, probably not,” the singer replied to Mayer’s touring question . “I’d love to. I was actually desperate to tour, which for me is wild because I don’t like touring. … I got into the swing of it last time and obviously I’ve gone up to stadiums. Without sounding spoiled, it’s easier because there’s less shows, you reach more people, you get to stay in place. … It doesn’t sit right with me putting an album out this year and then touring it in 2023.” Earlier in the fall, Adele addressed tour rumors in an interview with the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC2, and was much less definitive about the concept. “I don’t have any solid plans because of COVID,” she told the audience. “It’s so hard to plan a global tour or a global thing, really, in person and stuff like that. We have a few options in the pipeline and we’re just trying to work out what is most do-able.” On her last tour, Adele had to call off her last two performances in London due to issues with her vocal cords, but she seemed to be in good voice for her recent “One Night Only” performance in Los Angeles. Go easy on us, #ADELE is singing “Easy On Me” for the first time to a LIVE audience and we are not ok. Anyone else sobbing? pic.twitter.com/uZfkDOTXpk — CBS (@CBS) November 15, 2021 Ultimately, we can’t be certain whether or not Adele has a tour announcement in store for 2022 or not until we hear from her directly. For now, she’s being cagey, and many still anticipate that a tour will be announced – or at minimum some kind of a limited engagement or residency. Otherwise, fans will have to make due with the recorded versions of her new compositions until she takes the stage at Hyde Park next summer.

Bonnaroo announced its dates for a 2022 return, setting plans for June 16-19 of next year. Tickets for the annual festival will be see their first presale beginning on Friday, November 26. Hopes are high for the festival, which has been called off in each of the previous two years – due to COVID in 2020 , and then due to flooding after torrential rains hit Tennessee just before the event was set to begin this year. No lineup has yet been released for the festival, which typically draws a diverse array of performers to Tennessee for its multi-day affair. Some fans in the announcement thread posted that they were hesitant to purchase tickets until they knew who was going to be performing, and others intoned that they hadn’t yet been refunded by the official ticketing operation for this year’s cancellation. Also unclear is whether or not any COVID protocols will be in place for the event when it returns. The 2021 edition was set to require proof of either vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test within 72 hours of the start of the event. The COVID-19 health policy page indicates that restrictions may be in place, but nothing has been decided as of this time. “Please be informed that preventative health measures (e.g. proof of negative COVID-19 test or full COVID-19 vaccination, masks) may be required for this show,” reads the policy page, which was updated this week. “Details of any necessary measures will be communicated as early as possible and will be shared on the event/venue website and social media channels. If you have questions about vaccines or want to get a vaccine, please visit Vaccines.gov to find the nearest vaccine provider near you.” Bonnaroo 2022 ticket prices begin at $299 plus fees for a 4-day general admission pass, which allows access to the event grounds and the campground area, though a separate car camping pass or day parking pass is required. Prices for that option will rise to $320 and $330 as sales progress. GA+ adds access to a fast-lane entry at the gate, plus a private lounge with “premium restrooms” and separate food and bar options, with prices at $550 to start. VIP passes ($1,250 plus fees) add on access to the VIP Campground Plaza, VIP lounge, and shower and restroom facilities as well as a commemorative merchandise package and a separate VIP viewing area at performances. Finally, the “Platinum” pass ($3,500) brings with it backstage Artist Lounge access, an Exclusive Campground, up close viewing at all stages, golf cart transportation, complimentary VIP food and beverages including alcohol, and a partridge in a pear tree. Shuttle, camping, parking and hotel passes are also available beginning with the Black Friday presale. Those who wish to access it can sign up to receive a presale code via SMS text messaging systems. Visit Bonnaroo.com for more information.
