NEWS BITS
  • The Grateful Dead Fare the Well concert, set for Chicago's Soldier Field July 3-5, is officially sold out. After being blown away by mail order ticket requests and VIP experience demand, producers of the concert saw general public on-sales through Ticketmaster blow out in minutes Saturday (Feb 28), with the event now officially sold-out at about 210,000. Requests for tickets are believed to be in the millions. The shows are produced by Peter Shapiro. Nearly 500,000 were online waiting to purchase tickets when the "box office" opened at 10 a.m. CST, Shapiro says, adding that tickets went completely clean in less than an hour. "It would have sold out in an instant, the only thing that took a little time was the computers and stuff," he says, adding that the Ticketmaster handled the volume as about 100,000 were sold. "Ticketmaster did not go down." --- Billboard

  • Google just made its Play Music service a bit more appealing, even if you don’t use a Google Android phone. You can now upload 50,000 songs to your Google Play Music account at no charge; the previous limit was 20,000. Google announced the storage boost in a blog post, pointing out that once your tunes are uploaded, you can stream or download them on Android devices, an Apple iPad or iPhone, a Chromebook or from a computer via the browser. Music tracks can also be streamed through Google’s Chromecast device. The increased storage is a noticeable jump over what Apple offers with its iTunes Match service. There you get 25,000 track uploads but you have to pay $24.99 a year to get them. And you can’t get at those tunes from anything other than iTunes or an Apple TV, so Android device owners need not apply. --- GigaOM

  • Whitesnake is set to return with their 12th studio album this spring. The Purple Album will be released in Europe on May 15th, the UK on May 18th and in North America on May 19th via Frontiers Music SRL. The Purple Album is a re-imagination of classic songs from David Coverdale’s time as the lead singer for Deep Purple’s Mark 3 and Mark 4 studio albums. "It’s a tribute. A homage. It’s a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago," says Coverdale. "As I said to Richie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldn’t have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple is an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can’t wait to play these songs in concert." --- VVN

  • On Friday, Feb. 27, beloved Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy passed away in his Los Angeles home. He was 83. While not primarily known as a singer, Nimoy charted two eclectic albums (featuring a mix of spoken word and his singing) on the Billboard 200 in the late 1960s: Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space (which peaked at No. 83 in 1967) and Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy (No. 97 in 1968). Both were released on Dot Records. He released three more studio albums: The Way I Feel (1968), The Touch of Leonard Nimoy (1969) and The New World of Leonard Nimoy (1970). The single, "A Visit To A Sad Planet" peaked at No. 121 on the Billboard Bubbling Under the Hot 100 chart in 1967. --- Billboard

  • According to Music Week, the music industry is “on the verge of” making Friday the global release date for new music. The idea has been floated around since last summer, but Frances Moore of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) told Music Week that the organization intends to make a formal announcement soon. The IFPI believes the change would further diminish music piracy. Many albums are released in Australia and Germany the Friday before their American and UK release dates, leading to early leaks in those regions.
    Along with making it difficult for artists to organize “high-profile” appearances around their album’s release date, it raises concerns around restructuring scheduling for producing physical releases and reorienting global charts. Furthermore, US retailers including Target are threatening to stop selling music all together. --- C.O.S.

  • Wishbone Ash has announced 2015 tour dates. While some of the details are still being ironed out, a press release announcing the tour promises a date in Vancouver, British Columbia, followed by visits to Portland, Seattle, Oakland, San Juan Capistrano, Ramona, Phoenix, Austin and Dallas. For founding member Andy Powell, the 2015 tour represents an opportunity to return to the U.S. after reacquainting the band with its American fans during their travels in support of their recent Live Dates release. The title of this year’s tour, “Pilgrimage,” is a reference to the band’s 1971 album as well as an apt description of its annual travels.  --- UCR

  • The Killers' Brandon Flowers has announced his second solo album, The Desired Effect. The Desired Effect will be Flowers' first solo outing since 2010's Flamingo, though there's been no sign of new music from the Killers anytime soon. The band released the greatest hits compilation Direct Hits in 2013 with two new songs on it, but has not released a full album of new music since 2012's Battle Born.  --- RollingStone
