NEWS BITS
  • Legendary Australian rock band and agitators Midnight Oil have announced their first World Tour in over two decades. They also unveiled plans to release three archival box sets including a collection called “The Overflow Tank” which will contain more than 14 hours of previously unreleased and rare material. “The Great Circle 2017” World Tour will see the group’s classic lineup literally circle around our overheating planet for 6 months, starting and ending with gigs in Sydney. Appropriately for a band forged in their hometown’s sweat-drenched beer barns, the tour will begin in mid-April with an intimate local pub gig (details to be announced closer to the date). Midnight Oil will then perform 30 gigs around the world during the northern summer, playing iconic venues from Sao Paulo’s Espaço das Americas and the Wiltern in L.A. to London’s Hammersmith Apollo and The Olympia in Paris. They will share festival stages with artists like The Arcade Fire, Sting and The Pixies and finally return to New Zealand after 20 years. This long-awaited World Tour will climax with 18 special homecoming concerts through October and November, 2017. --- glide

  • Eddie Van Halen donated 75 guitars from his personal collection to Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a program that provides musical instruments to students in low-income schools. "My whole life has been music. I could not imagine anything else," Van Halen told CNN Tuesday. "It's a must. It has to be taught." The foundation doles out nearly 1,800 instruments annually to schools without music programs, which helps provide music education to over 10,000 students. It was very difficult at first to find a charity that [takes guitars]," Van Halen said. "They all just wanted money." CNN's John Vause noted there are dozens of kids out there learning to play guitar, not knowing the instrument previously belonged to one of the greatest guitarists ever. --- rollingStone

  • Filming has begun on The Story Of Motown, a feature-length documentary that chronicles the enormous success and enduring cultural impact of the Detroit label. The documentary is a join production between Fulwell 73, Motown Records and the newly-revived Polygram Entertainment. It is expected to be released in 2018. The film will be told through new interviews with the label’s founder, Berry Gordy, and many of its artists, presumably including Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, as well as rare performances and behind-the-scenes footage unearthed from Motown’s vaults and Gordy’s personal archives. The film is being directed by Gabe and Ben Turner, whose credits include Class Of 92, I Am Bolt and One Direction: This Is Us. --- uncut

  • Former Beatles bandmates Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited in the studio this past weekend to record new music together, the drummer revealed on social media. “Thanks for coming over and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love,” Starr wrote alongside a photo of him and McCartney in the studio. Thanks for coming over man and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love. Starr also tweeted a photo of him, McCartney and Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, Starr's brother-in-law, from the same studio session. "And look out Joe W. came out to play what a day I'm having," Starr tweeted. The recording session came just days after McCartney, Starr and Walsh, along with Tom Hanks and Dave Grohl, were all spotted dining together in Santa Monica. Starr is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to 2015's Postcards From Paradise. He and McCartney, who inducted Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015, last collaborated on the drummer's 2010 LP Y Not, with McCartney singing on "Walk With You" and providing bass on "Peace Dream." --- rollingStone
