Kid Rock Plans Fall Tour for Local Charities

With more than 23 million albums sold in the US, four Grammy nominations and three Top 40 hits, Kid Rock has been more fortunate than most. But even after more than a decade as one of the most successful recording artists in the world, he hasn’t forgotten the importance of reaching out to those in need.

In fact, that’s just what he’s doing with his fall tour, which has him visiting a series of small theaters across the country and donating the proceeds to local charities and individuals.

Def Leppard, Chili Peppers and Tim McGraw Deliver Top Summer Concerts

It’s been nearly 25 years since Def Leppard hit their commercial peak with the $12-million-selling ‘Hysteria’ album, but they can still pack ‘em in on the road. In fact, the veteran rockers’ latest run of dates — a package tour with fellow classic rock legends Heart — was the top-grossing draw of the last three months.

They faced some pretty stiff competition for concert dollars, too; with an overall gross of $14.5 million, the Def Leppard/Heart lineup bested the latest tours from the Red Hot Chili Peppers (in second place with $9.2 million) and Tim McGraw (in third with $7.4 million).

Reunited Mr. Big Plans First U.S. Tour in 15 Years

They’ve always been big in Japan, but Mr. Big has kept a pretty low profile in America since the mid-’90s — so longtime fans should be excited to hear about the band’s upcoming string of U.S. tour dates, the first for the original lineup since they hit the road in support of 1996′s ‘Hey Man.’

Guitarist Paul Gilbert, who returned to the band in 2009 after over a decade of pursuing other projects, is particularly eager for fans to see the reunion. “Man, it’s been a long time,” he says. “I can’t wait to play our first show in America in about 15 years. It’s gonna be huge!”

Michael Anthony Says Second Chickenfoot CD Is Finished

Rock supergroups have always been notorious for flaming out quickly, so when we found out Sammy Hagar was teaming up with Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony, and Chad Smith to form Chickenfoot, we knew only time would tell if they stood the test of time.

But in spite of the scheduling difficulties (and, no doubt, ego-juggling) that comes with a collaboration this size, the band has managed to defy the odds by finishing work on its second CD.
