Video From Twisted Sister's Hometown Farewell Show Goes Online

Twisted Sister delivered their hometown farewell performance at Lakewood, NJ's second annual Rock Carnival on October 1, and video from the event has surfaced online.

The group's final Tri-State area gig kicked off with "What You Don't Know (Sure Can Hurt You)", the opening track from their 1982 album debut, "Under The Blade", and the 16-song set leaned heavily on the band's first three albums, including 1984's breakthrough "Stay Hungry."

Twisted Sister will end their live career with two more shows on their 40th anniversary tour schedule: an October 22 stop in Sioux Falls, SD and a November 12 gig in Monterrey, Mexico.

"The best way I can describe it is it's the last five minutes of the Twisted Sister fireworks display," guitarist Jay Jay French explained earlier this year. "This is the end, and I know people are skeptical because all bands say they're retiring and then they don't. We never did, although (Snider) has retired many times. This is the first time I've said, 'Yeah, this is it.' It's been a long time. It's been over 9,000 shows, and it is time to call it a day." Check out the videos from the final show here.

Country music star Dierks Bentley is planning ahead to early next year with the announcement that he will launching the What The Hell Tour of North American featuring support from Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi.

Bentley had the following to say in the announcement, "Coming off the electricity and emotion of two nights at Red Rocks last week, it felt right to just go ahead and announce plans for next year and keep this thing rolling.

"There's a song on my album called 'What The Hell Did I Say' and it seemed like an appropriate title for a tour with Cole and Pardi. I have a feeling I'll be asking myself that question the morning after many of our shows and late night hangs because you really don't know what will happen when the three of us get together.

"There has been a lot of drunk calls and texts between all of us over the last year trying to make this tour happen, and I'm excited we were able to pull it off."

Bentley has only revealed the routing for the tour with the dates and venues to be announced soon. See the cities here.

Kanye West Demos From 'Pablo' and 'Yeezus' Leaked

(Radio.com) It's been a tumultuous time for Kanye West and his family. Kim Kardashian has reportedly jetted out of Paris following an alleged armed robbery during fashion week, interrupting West's New York show and gaining rapt attention from international media.
Fans mystified by this unfolding drama might take cover by listening to two previously unheard demos, "I Am A God" and "FML," which have surfaced on SoundCloud.

"I Am A God," which originally appeared on Yeezus, sports a different synth line and an additional verse, while "FML" features Travis Scott without the Weeknd cameo that appeared on The Life of Pablo. It's unclear where the demos came from, but you can stream them here.

Tim McGraw And Faith Hill Performing Show Together

(Radio.com) A mysterious concert announcement appeared on Ryman Auditorium's website on Friday (September 30). Unknown duo "Sam & Audrey" would be playing a show tonight, October 4 at the legendary Nashville venue, which led some to speculate about whether the names were code for another, more well-known couple. Turns out, they were.

Tim McGraw announced Monday morning (October 3) that he and his wife Faith Hill (whose real names are Samuel Timothy and Audrey Faith) are indeed the enigmatic Sam & Audrey, and they will be performing an entire evening together, and hopefully--likely--singing one of their many duets.

Hill's manager previously denied that the duo listed on Ryman's calendar was McGraw and Hill, but the venue has since updated its site to reflect the name change since the cat is out of the bag (via The Boot). Read more here.

Bruno Mars Announces New Single '24K Magic'

(Radio.com) Bruno Mars fans eager for new material don't have to wait much longer: Mars announced that he will be debuting his new song "24K Magic" this Friday.

It's hard to believe the singer's last solo single, "Young Girls" dropped nearly three years ago in November 2013. His last featured appearance on Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" hit the airwaves in November 2014, and its cultural stamina has tided Bruno over for nearly two years.

In February, that song earned a Record of the Year Grammy and secured a Super Bowl Halftime Show appearance alongside Coldplay and Beyonce. Read more here.

Hunter Hayes Shares New Track 'Yesterday's Song'

(Radio.com) Over the past year, Hunter Hayes reportedly wrote over 100 songs, and now he's gearing up to share some of those on his yet-untitled third studio album. Today we get to hear another single from that album "Yesterday's Song."

Hayes co-wrote "Yesterday's Song" with Barry Dean and Martin Johnson. It's about the emotional shift that takes place when someone who once meant the world suddenly doesn't. "You were the soundtrack every night in my bed/ You were the 'woo-hoo' getting stuck in my head/ Now you're just an echo where the feeling is gone/ Baby, now you're just yesterday's song, you're yesterday's song," Hayes sings in the second part of the chorus.

"I've been on such an incredible journey this past year, not just musically but personally as well," Hayes said. "There's always been that next goal to reach, whether it was a single or an album or an arena tour, and this is the first time I've really been able to kind of step back from all of that and just let my instincts and creativity flow. I've waited a long time to get this new music out, and 'Yesterday's Song' really captures that free feeling, that joyous realization that you're moving on and starting this fresh, new chapter."

Norah Jones Releases New Song Called 'Tragedy'

(Radio.com) Norah Jones has released a new song entitled "Tragedy". The track is the second single that she has released from her forthcoming album "Day Breaks," which will be released on October 7th.

The slow number relies on piano and drums to set the mood with Jones lightly playing the soulful melody in the intro. The chorus comes in place of a first verse and sets the tone. "It's a tragedy," Jones repeats over and over again, her voice rising from its typical alto in places and leaving listeners with no doubt about the kind of story that follows.

"Tragedy" tells the story of a young 25-year-old man who finds he prefers drinking alcohol to anything else in life. It may help him feel better, but it naturally impacts his domestic life. "When his water was turned to wine/ All the darkness became light/ Babies and a patient wife/ They just weren't enough to keep him high/ So he gave them up just to fill his cup/ Every sip'll make him feel alive," she sings, her jazzy vocals infusing the narrative with an added ache. Check it out here.

Martin Garrix And Bebe Rexha Cover Twenty One Pilots

(Radio.com) Dutch DJ Martin Garrix performed his new single "In the Name of Love" featuring Bebe Rexha on the BBC 1 Live Lounge on Monday (October 3), and for their second number the pair took the opportunity to cover Twenty One Pilots.

Playing the duo's single "Heathens," off Suicide Squad: The Album, Garrix showed off his instrumental ability by playing guitar while Rexha sang. As far as interpretations go, Garrix and crew didn't change much about how they played Twenty One Pilots' song.

The main difference comes by way of Rexha's voice, which contains a slightly raspy quality compared to how Tyler Joseph originally sings "Heathens." Check it out and read more here.

Diplo Jokes That Taylor Swift Robbed Kim Kardashian

(Radio.com) Diplo made light of the news that reality television star Kim Kardashian was the victim of an armed robbery in Paris this weekend. Diplo suggested in a tweet that "Taylor robbed kim."

Diplo is suggesting, though we assume not seriously, that Taylor Swift is responsible for the incident in which millions of dollars worth of jewelry were stolen from Kim Kardashian in what sounds like a terrifying robbery.

This would be obviously be Taylor taking revenge on Kardashian for leaking video footage of Swift's phone conversation with her husband Kanye West regarding his controversial verse on the track "Famous." Read more here.
