Beyonce Announces World Tour, Stops At Barclays Center

first_imgWhat perfect timing, Mrs. Carter. The morning after performing on America’s biggest stage, Beyonce has announced that she will hitting the road on a giant world tour, dubbed ‘The Mrs. Carter Show’. Bey will hit 24 cities throughout Europe between April and May, before returning to North America for another 20+ dates. The tour will see Beyonce do a four night run at London’s O2, headline the BET Experience at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and wrap up with a giant show at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on August 3rd.The Super Bowl generally doesn’t pay it’s half time show performers, so this tour was clearly strategically placed to capitalize on last night’s massive performance. Solid idea, Beyonce. But let’s talk about the name of this tour for a second – ‘The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour Starring Beyonce” – it’s kind of strange. A little too much there. Whatever.

Aphex Twin Says You Have To Be Mentally Ill To Be Famous, Believes In Aliens & The Illuminati

first_imgRichard D James, otherwise known as Aphex Twin, recently disclosed to Q Magazine that all famous people are mentally ill. He explains,“I have hung around with enough famous people to realise they’ve got a serious insecurity problem. I think you have to be mentally ill to be really famous … If you’re like Madonna, then you’re properly mentally ill, basically. Because you have to be … I’m only partially mentally ill, because I’m semi-famous!”James goes on to discuss his belief in aliens, the illuminati, and magic.“Even if none of it’s true, it’s just a thousand times better than any science fiction film that’s ever been written. You can’t only believe things which can be proven. It’s boring.”He says this holds true for his recent mysterious Aphex Twin logo, explaining:“You think of something that you want to happen, then you turn it into something that looks like a magic symbol, and then you put it out in the world, and it works. It does … But if you tell anyone what the symbol means, then it will stop working.last_img read more

Arcade Fire Plan To Open A Restaurant

first_imgArcade Fire husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne have announced plans to expand their talents to the culinary field, opening up a Haitian restaurant in Montreal. The new establishment, Agrikol, will open this summer.The new venture is a collaboration with Roland Jean and Jen Agg, owners Toronto’s The Black Hoof and Rhum Corner. The unique concept will feature a music and art space, as well as authentic foods and flavors.Chassagne is of Haitian origin, and the band has worked to raise several million dollars for the country in recent years.The Globe and Mail further explains, “Featuring Haitian cuisine, music and visual arts, the space will build on the cultural advocacy work that Chassagne and Butler have demonstrated since Montreal-based Arcade Fire started raising funds for Haiti in 2005. For Agg and the Haitian-born Jean (who is also a painter), it will be a chance to take their signature, convivial restaurant style beyond Toronto’s Dundas Street West.”“The idea is that it’s a cultural space,” continues Butler. “The thing that we were really impressed with at Rhum Corner is that it’s this space for Haitian and Caribbean culture and it’s really cool and contemporary.”As for the food, Agg describes it as “slightly differently, but the food and flavours are really authentic. It’s going to be fun because there is just a much larger [Haitian] community [in Montreal], so we have access to ingredients that we don’t have in Toronto.” [Via Eater]last_img read more
