KISS & Motley Crue Announce Summer Tour: 'No Fake Bull---t'...


"We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them," Gene Simmons says...

KISS and Motley Crue are hitting the road for a co-headlining tour -- dubbed simply "The Tour" -- this summer, the iconic rock acts announced on Tuesday.

The 40-date North American tour will kick off in Bristow, Va., on July 20 and run through the end of the summer, with the hard rock groups each playing 90-minute sets.

"These guys are the baddest band in the f***ing world," Motley Crue's Vince Neil said on stage with both bands at the Roosevelt Hotel on Tuesday. "Our very first tour was with [KISS], 1982. To be able to do it now is amazing."

"Seeing them on stage, it was obvious back then that this was the next big thing," KISS' Paul Stanley added. "We talk about bang for buck, this will be the definition of bang for buck on this tour. If you want to see more bombs and artillery, you'll have to check out the military."

Whether or not KISS bassist Gene Simmons' A&E reality show, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," will follow the explosive tour was unclear. "Probably. Maybe… not," he said.

But he had a clear answer to for the pop stars now invading stadiums once filled largely by rock acts.

"We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them," Simmons said. "No fake bullshit. Leave that to the Rihanna, Shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an 'A.'"

Supafest 2012, Sydney, Australia; Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, Lupe Fiasco, Naughty By Nature and more - 15th April 2012

Profiles

Music Television MTV Events Sydney


It was a hot crowd, despite more controversy than usual for a music festival on Australian soil.

ANZ Stadium at Homebush, Sydney, was the venue.

This concert was very loud in buzz leading up to the event, as well as in actual decibels, with quite a few folks likely to be tempted to get their hearing tested soon after the Sydney leg is over.

ANZ Stadium is a licensed premise, and many in the crowd enjoyed a drink no doubt.

As always with large concerts, there's a range of reviews coming in, and we'll be offering a more detailed report in the coming days and fan feedback continues to come in.

Headline Act was Chris Brown.

Chris Brown profile...

Mutli-Platinum selling global superstar, and recent Grammy Winner CHRIS BROWN is returning to Australia to bless the stages at Supafest. His incredible live performances have earned him a reputation as one of this generation’s most electrifying male performers, and his latest single “Turn Up The Music” which debuted at #13 on this week’s Aria Charts is proof that his star continues to rise. The track will feature on the forthcoming album “Fortune”; the eagerly anticipated follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2011 release F.A.M.E which featured the massive world wide hit singles “Look At Me Now”, “Yeah X 3” and “Beautiful People”. He first burst onto the scene in 2005 with his #1 selling, double platinum smash hit single “Run It”, and instantly drew comparisons to Michael Jackson, Usher and even Stevie Wonder. His gold selling debut album “Chris Brown” was released to critical acclaim and saw his star rise swiftly, prompting Vibe Magazine to name him “The Future Of R&B”. Chris firmly established himself as an R&B and Pop Tower of Power with a huge worldwide fan base to match. The accolades continued in 2007 with his sophomore Top 5 Aria Double Platinum album “Exclusive” which spawned the smash hits “Wall to Wall” (Platinum), “With You” (Double Platinum), “Kiss Kiss” (Double Platinum) and “Forever” (Triple Platinum). The release of “Graffiti” in 2009 cemented his chart topping power with the lead single “I Can Transform Ya” which reached platinum sales.

A year later, his next album "The Cool" reached even greater heights spawning the Top 10 single "Superstar". Both these albums earned him a reputation as a rap philosopher, a sharp, dynamic lyricist, and an MC who could shock you, make you think, make you dance, make you laugh and all without resorting to vulgarity or tired hip-hop alliterations. The Chicago-born MC released "LASERS" after a four-year hiatus in 2011. His massive group of dedicated and loyal fans grew restless during his downtime and more than 32,000 fans signed a petition demanding his record label released "LASERS". His most recent body of work features some of the most thought-provoking rhymes and concepts Fiasco has ever conceived, and features the hit singles "The Show Goes On", and "Out Of My Head" featuring Trey Songz.

Flo Rida performs free rap concert at Parramatta Westfield, Sydney, Australia

Profiles

Music Hollywood Sydney


Flo Rida is loving Sydney, Australia, and today performed a free mini rap concert at at Parramatta, Westfield, in Sydney's west.

As media and entertainment commentators predicted, Flo Rida maniacs grooved, danced and sung their hearts out, with a few media folks out also catching a close up afternoon dance with the Flo man.

The concert began with chants of "Flo Rida", with Flo Rida staying on mic... "I say Flo, you say Rida", and the fans followedd his lead and were into it big time. Then the Flo man started with mega hit 'Good Feeling' - a number that was his sixth top-10 and fourth top-five single on the charts. The song went on to became a top ten hit in 16 countries.

As is sometimes the case, media were not permitted to stay the whole concert, and in face today media were allowed filming of just one song. Still, we were very close up, secured great photos and videos, and loved the music, so we went home happy. It was quality, not quantity, but speaking of numbers - there were about 2000 screaming fans there that hung on every word and beat.

We understand that Flo Rida has been spending a lot of moolah at luxury hotels down under, so it might make financial sense for him to buy a pad here also. Plus, his Australian fans are some of the most passionate in the world, as they demonstrated again today, and Australia looks ready to adopt him... if he desires.

The mega popular chart-topping American rapper is wrapt to be back in "Sin City" Sydney again, and he plans to hold many more concerts for his loyal Australian fans.

Flo Rida arrived yesterday morning after a workout in the hotel gym and lunch, he got into the promotional mindset - pushing his new EP, Good Feeling.

The title track has already enjoyed strong success after it was used as the theme for the return of Australia's Young Talent Time but Flo and his record label are keen to see it rocket up the charts once again.

"It's part of the way music works these days, in commercials, and I've also been fortunate to have my songs in movies to give them another life," Flo told News Limited press.

One of the Music News' and Media Man agency favourite songs which continues to perform strongly on the charts is his No. 1 smash 'Wild Ones', with Australian singer Sia.

"I was in the studio out in LA and was brought into a room where Sia was. I heard her amazing voice - I fell down to the floor and I told her: 'Man, we get this record right, it's going to be a huge worldwide smash'," Flo said. He was right on the money.

Flo and support crew - thanks for your awesome hospitality today. The mini concert was awesome and even exceeded our sky high expectations.

We are in the multitudes who believe that Flo Rida will be at the top of his game for many years, and we don't mind one bit if he chooses to call Australia home.

Australia needs more top line live performing artists and shows, and Flo Rida and his crew are world class all the way baby. We say Flo - you say Rida.

Flo Rida is taking quite a liking to Sydney, Australia, and today will offer Australian fans a free mini concert at Parramatta, Westfield, in Sydney's west. Get ready to run and go wild Flo Rida maniacs.

For some, like us, our first main introduction to Flo Rider was when he performed at WWE WrestleMania 28, forming the lead in for Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson, as "The Rock" prepared for battle with John Cena (intro by MGK - Machine Gun Kelly).

Flo Rida performs for free this afternoon at Westfield Parramatta at approximately 4.30pm.

We can't wait. How about you? And if you've never heard the Flo man before, brace yourself - you are in a treat. It's not your typical rap - its much much better. Oh yeah, dig it - do you smell what we're cooking.

BATTLESHIP stars berth at Sydney; Luna Park; Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, director Peter Berg - 10th April 2012

Profiles

Movies Hollywood Sydney BattleShip


Ahoy. The battle for earth begins at sea in epic action-adventure BATTLESHIP - but tonight the all-star cast was warmly welcomed to iconic and circus like Luna Park Sydney, for the Australian Premiere of their highly anticipated new film.

In an exciting and profitable partnership, Universal Pictures and 2Day FM co-presented the Australian Premiere under the Luna Park Big Top, where leading man Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) walked the red carpet with his co-stars - pop sensation Rihanna in her big screen debut, supermodel Brooklyn Decker (Just Go With It) and acclaimed director Peter Berg (Hancock).

From the studio that brought us Transformers, BATTLESHIP is an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, BATTLESHIP stars Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård and Rihanna.

Rihanna arrived (by BattleShip) - thanks to the Australian Navy and top brass Heath Robertson at approx 7pm and wore a black jumpsuit - much more conservative than what she normally wears on stage... perhaps to help protect herself from the cool breeze bouncing off Sydney Harbour.

Pitch...

A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

Director: Peter Berg
Writers: Erich Hoeber, Jon Hoeber
Stars: Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker and Liam Neeson

Calm Before The Storm; Rihanna Meeting With Film Director - Fun and Games...

Music superstar Rihanna and her Battleship co-star Brooklyn Decker had a bit of fun earlier today ahead of tonight's red carpet premiere at circus themed Luna Park.

The talented and gorgeous ladies wore their own T-shirts featuring old photos of the film's director Peter Berg while talking to Australian news media.

"This journalist came into an interview of ours - I think in London - and he had a Rihanna T-shirt and Brooklyn said 'I'm getting a Rihanna T-shirt' and I said 'no we should get Pete Berg T-shirts'," Rihanna said.

"So it was her idea and we ended up getting them printed and the whole cast has them.

"I cannot wait to see his face."

Rihanna wore the shirt with black leather Alexander Wang shorts and chunky gold jewellery, while Decker wore hers with dark jeans and nude heels.

It's a bit different from the Barbados native's first meeting with Berg, who directed flicks such as Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom and Hancock.

"I had no idea who he was. I knew his face but I didn't know he was a director. I didn't even know it was a movie meeting I was in," she said.

"So he had little replicas of the aliens on this desk and I'm cracking up because he's calling them thugs. I thought 'this guy is so weird, why does he have all these toys in his room?'

"By the end of the whole meeting I had obviously figured out we were talking about a film but only at the end of the meeting I knew that he was the director, and it made me say 'oh (expletive)'. Let me backtrack everything I did in this meeting for the last hour. I hope I've got this part."

The big-budget action movie is Rihanna's first acting role and sees her starring opposite John Carter star Taylor Kitsch, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard and Liam Neeson.

Early reports are that BattleShip is a quality film and most people will be very entertained. Think 4 out of 5 stars, which is much better than the average film these days. Well done to Universal and the powers that be. Fair winds.

If you think "Sin City" Sydney has been a bit of a celebrity and media circus lately - you're right, and tonight a few celebs appropriately turned up at the circus like Luna Park for a bit of media war fun and games! Sydney Airport has also been circus like over the past 24 hours we have observed through our lens and media spy network. Splash News, Snapper, TMZ, OMG, the Media Man agency - everyone is jockeying for position and exclusive news scoops.

Australian fans upset as One Direction away at airport...

Hundreds of teenage girls have been left broken-hearted after British boy band One Direction landed at Sydney Airport and left through a back door.

Some fans had camped overnight while others arrived before sunrise to catch a glimpse of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson ahead of their sold-out tour of Australia.

But the group was whisked away through a back door and into a waiting car - an old trick, but a goodie.

One Direction has become an overnight pop sensation with sales of more than 4.2 million albums in six months since forming on Britain's version of The X Factor.

Sydney Airport enjoyed fans cheering and singing One Direction songs, including Up All Night and What Makes You Beautiful.

"They are the most amazing group of five boys that you'll ever meet," said one teary fan.

"They have amazing voices and great personalities and beautiful faces."

One Direction's sold-out tour starts in Sydney on Friday. Be ready for chaos and lots of loud screams.


Sydney Casino Club Dancer 'sacked' for dancing too close to Paris Hilton...

A professional dancer claims she was sacked for dancing "inappropriately" on a podium next to Paris Hilton at the new Marquee nightclub in Sydney.

Tahnee Chapman, 25, said she was dancing at the nightclub with three other girls last Saturday night when Hilton joined them.

Ms Chapman danced next to her and was reportedly getting close to the star.

"The only reason I danced next to her was because there was no room. I was actually looking out for her because her heel kept slipping on the edge," she told the Sunday Telegraph.

"I wasn't being provocative. My style is described at sultry. It involves grinding and moving — I was shaking my bum a bit and my costume had tassels on it."

Originally from Rockhampton in Queensland, Ms Chapman had moved to Sydney to pursue a modelling career and was excited to be offered the chance to perform at Marquee.

Her friend Clare McCann, who runs Elite Podium Dancers, got her the gig.

Ms Chapman said Ms McCann texted her about her behaviour after the event.

"I'm pretty annoyed you didn't realise how inappropriate this is not to mention giving out your number and getting on the podium with Paris Hilton and reportedly shaking your ass in front of her," she claimed the text message read.

Ms McCann has denied Ms Chapman's claims, saying she was never sacked because she was on a contract and never received fulltime work before she "failed to perform her job description".

"She was never texted about nor told that Paris Hilton was upset about her jumping on the podium and this allegation is completely false," she was quoted by Rupert Murdoch's Sunday Telegraph.

Ms Chapman said she did not hold a grudge against Hilton but felt the incident may affect her career.

"I don't hate her but I feel that if I can't keep a job because Paris Hilton is jealous of me when what hope do I have of keeping a normal one?" she said.


Sydney, Australia Gets Loads Of Hollywood Celebs...

It's red carpet premieres, concerts and lots of celeb spotting...

One Direction were snuck through Sydney International Airport which left some fans in tears.

Fellow Park Hyatt guest Tony Bennett, an acclaimed painter when he is not exercising those golden tonsils, chose to paint Sydney Harbour on canvas.

Rihanna snatched lots of attention when she ventured out on her balcony, while her Battleship co-star Brooklyn Decker took in the sun.

Last night Zac Efron did the red carpet at the Bondi Junction premiere for his latest movie The Lucky One.

Rihanna is doing BattleShip at Luna Park tonight and may catch up with old ex Chris Brown, who we understand heads up Supafest - despite rumours of some artists been falsely advertised for the music festival.

One Direction is tipped to turn Martin Place into chaos tomorrow when they hit the Seven Sunrise stage.

The appearance at Martin Place is costing Channel 7 in the region of $15,000 in beefed-up security, with the cast and crew of Sunrise bracing for an scrum of young fans, who have bombarded the network demanding information on the group's Sydney itinerary.

And a planned appearance by the group at a private Austereo event, originally slated for the radio network's Goulburn St headquarters, has been moved to a secret location, at a cost of thousands, due to security concerns.

It's understood the visit, held in the first week of NSW school holidays, has been deliberately shrouded in secrecy as security concerns for the five band members increases.

Just imagine what drama is going to hit Sydney if or when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson or Leonardo DiCaprio come to Sydney later this year!

That's it movie and music fans. Stay tuned to Media Man and Street Corner for more entertainment news and scoops daily.

Virgin worker quits over supplying celebrity tip-offs - 7th April 2012

Profiles

Virgin Enterprises Limited Celebrities Fashion Music Photography Entertainment Richard Branson Travel Britain World Directory


A Virgin Atlantic employee has resigned following allegations she routinely fed information about the company's celebrity clientele to a paparazzi agency, the airline says.

Virgin said that the employee, a junior member of the team tasked with looking after high-profile clients, quit on Thursday ahead of reports published in the Guardian and the Press Gazette alleging that she'd passed more than 60 celebrities' booking information on to the Big Pictures photo agency.

Among those allegedly targeted: Britain's Princess Beatrice; singers Madonna and Rihanna; actors Charlize Theron, Kate Winslet, Daniel Radcliffe and Sienna Miller; comedians Sacha Baron Cohen and Russell Brand; and a slew of UK celebrities and sports figures.

Both the Guardian and the Press Gazette cited messages allegedly sent by the employee to someone at Big Pictures Ltd as the basis for their stories.

The Associated Press had no immediate way of verifying the authenticity of the messages, but the Guardian said it had carried out checks confirming that at least some of the celebrities had travelled to the destinations mentioned in the emails.

Calls and emails to representatives of around a dozen of the celebrities mentioned went unreturned on Friday, a public holiday in the United States and Britain. A representative for Princess Beatrice declined comment, while Kate Winslet's publicist, Heidi Slan, said the star wasn't reachable.

In a statement, Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd called the allegations "extremely serious" and said it had launched an investigation. The airline, which is majority-owned by billionaire adventurer Richard Branson, confirmed that high-profile clients were involved but declined to comment on the British newspapers' figures.

A man who answered the phone at London-based Big Pictures hung up when an Associated Press reporter identified himself as a member of the media. Emails sent to company founder Darren Lyons' personal assistant weren't immediately returned. The Press Gazette said Big Pictures was first approached for comment more than 48 hours ago but has yet to respond.

Neither Virgin nor the newspapers identified the employee in question. The Guardian said it had contacted her on Wednesday and that she had declined comment.

It was not clear on Friday if authorities had become involved. Virgin refused to say whether it had called in the police and a Scotland Yard spokesman said he wasn't aware of the leak.

A spokeswoman for the Information Commissioner's office - which investigates data breaches in Britain - said the agency was closed over the holiday period.

The past year has seen the sometimes underhanded methods of Britain's media thrust into the spotlight by a scandal over phone hacking at the now-defunct News of the World.

Paparazzi have come under particular scrutiny, with public figures including Miller alleging aggressive, intimidating or illegal behaviour on the part of celebrity-obsessed snappers.

Miller, who testified before a judge-led inquiry into media ethics set up in the wake of the scandal, said she had been terrorised by photographers stalking her every move.

"I would often find myself - I was 21 - at midnight running down a dark street on my own with ten big men chasing me and the fact that they had cameras in their hands meant that that was legal," she told the inquiry.

"But if you take away the cameras, what have you got? You've got a pack of men chasing a woman and obviously that's a very intimidating situation to be in."

Lyons, the founder of Big Pictures, told the same inquiry he had "no reason" to believe his photographers broke rules in pursuit of pictures, batting away suggestions that paparazzi victimise their targets.

"The fact of the matter is that celebrities court publicity when they want to court publicity and then all of a sudden they want to switch it off very, very soon after," he told the inquiry.

"If you are in the public eye, you are looked up to," he added. "We live in a world of voyeurism." (AP)

The Man in Black Coming To Sydney Opera House; Tex Perkins To Wow Johnny Cash Fans

Profiles

Movies Hollywood Theatre Johnny Cash Sydney


Australian country music living legend Tex Perkins has nailed Johnny Cash in his 'The Man in Black' stage show.

The great news for Sydney siders is that its coming to the world famous Sydney Opera House this April and will be running for most of the month.

Exploring into Cash's life, love and loss, Tex along with Rachael Tidd and the band – Shannon Bourne, Dave Folley, Steve Hadley and Shane Reilly – will perform 23 of Cash’s songs from Ring of Fire, I Walk the Line and Folsom Prison Blues to Sunday Mornin’ Coming Down, Get Rhythm and A Boy Named Sue.

There's lot of praise being thrown around for Perkin's performance of Cash, and in this case is it truly deserved.

The massive catalogue of Cash work is done justice in a show that covers both the story of Cash's life, death, and the magical songs that brought it all together.

Perkins is a master in being Cash, with his deep gravelly mumble, his darkness and powerful spirit.

He is supported superbly by Rachael Tidd, who plays Cash’s wife and soulmate June Carter. Her voice is equal, if not better than the character she portrays and the special chemistry she shares with Perkins adds even more greatness to the show.

For those old enough to have witnessed the orginal Johnny Cash, you will be impressed, and for those who haven't, Perkins gives you as close to as perfection as is humanly possible.

This is 'The Man in Black' and Australia is blessed to have Tex delivering it to our Sydney Opera House.

Pitch...

The Man in Black - The Johnny Cash Story

The Helpmann Award winning The Man in Black is back! Tex Perkins leads The Tennessee Four in a celebration of the life and times of one of the most incredible singers, songwriters and entertainers to ever grace the stage.

This is two hours of Cash's magnificent music interwoven with the story of his rise to stardom, his fight for survival and his eventual redemption. Tex and his band take on Ring of Fire, I Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues, Sunday Mornin' Coming Down, Get Rhythm, A Boy Named Sue and other classics in a 2 hour show that also explores his relationships - from hardened prisoners to the beautiful June Carter and lots in between.

With his driving freight-train chords, steel-eyed intensity and a voice as dark as the night, the legendary Johnny Cash revolutionised music. Tex Perkins, one of the most electrifying front men of Australian rock 'n' roll, brings the hard-living country legend to life, delving into the depths of the star's life, love and loss.

'When Tex Perkins, formerly of the Cruel Sea and the Beasts of Bourbon, grabs the microphone and growls: ''I'm Johnny Cash'', you believe him.' THE AUSTRALIAN

'…Tex is Tex. Captivating and entertaining. And so is the show. It will satisfy hardcore fans of both men. And that's no mean feat.' HERALD SUN

Venue: Playhouse
Dates: 10 - 22 April
Duration: 135 minutes, including 20 minute interval
