The show also saw bassist Robert Trujillo being pelted with pies to mark his 52nd birthday. Metallica are gearing up for the release of 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct on November 18. They'll launch Atlas, Rise!, the third track to appear from the record, on Halloween. A limited-edition seasonal mask goes on sale on October 28, which comes with an access code offering the chance to hear the song 30 minutes before its official release.
Drummer Lars Ulrich reported last week that Lulu, their controversial 2011 album with Lou Reed, had been instrumental in forging the direction of Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.
He said: "We'd do one take of something. We'd make it up as we were going along. There was this completely momentary, impulsive energy. That that kind of acceptance of the moment was something that we had never experienced.
"It definitely gave us a new way to interpret a creative process." Watch the videohere.
Knight alleges that Dre contracted the man who shot him seven times in 2014. The suit states that while the L.A. County Sheriff's Department questioned a man, identified as "Damian" or "T-Money," and that the man admitted Dre paid him for the attempted hit, no arrest was made. Knight is seeking unspecified damages, punitive and otherwise, as well as several other claims, reports Rolling Stone.
Knight also alleges that Dre paid a man $300,000 for a different hit in January 2015. During an altercation that ensued, the alleged hit man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, punched Knight in the parking lot of Tam's Burgers in Compton. Fearing for his life, Knight drove away, injuring Sloan and killing another man, Terry Carter, "The lawsuit gives the proper motivation or at least explains what happened to Suge in the past year and a half," Knight's lawyer, Thaddeus Culpepper, tells Rolling Stone.

The Seattle native joined GNR this year as the group's second keyboardist alongside Dizzy Reed for the partially-reunited band's Not In This Lifetime tour.
Following Reese's performance, GNR founding member and bassist Duff McKagan was also on hand to raise the 12 Flag before the game in the team's traditional salute to fans.
Guns N' Roses North American summer stadium tour grossed $116.8 million while selling more than 1 million tickets from 25 concerts in 21 stadiums over the 9-week run. Check out video of Reese and McKagan from the gamehere.
A deposition--which the plaintiff moved to keep sealed--reveals Swift's account of the alleged incident, reports Billboard. "Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my a– cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there," she said.
"It was completely intentional, I've never been so sure of anything in my life. I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before." Read morehere.
The two beefed earlier in September (with Cudi taking aim at Drake and Kanye West for ghostwriting their music) before Cudi checked himself into a rehab facility for depression and suicidal thoughts.
Cudi's fans have been trolling Drake on Instagram, and when a fan said that he was over Drake for taking such a low shot at Cudi, Drake actually responded.
"Mans need to stop mentioning my name when they get geeked," he wrote in a comment on Instagram. "Supposed to be all love out here word to my bro Pablo."
"Geeked" roughly translates to losing your mind after taking too many drugs, and Drake seems to be warning Cudi not to involve him in any drama when he's in that condition. Read morehere.
His son, Jeff Velline, confirms. Vee passed peacefully and surrounded by family, but it was 'the end of a long hard road." Velline added that Vee was 'a person who brought joy all over the world. That was his job."
Bobby Vee got his start as a 15-year-old stand-in for Buddy Holly in Moorhead, Minnesota on February 3rd, 1959, the 'day the music died." Read morehere.
Reba told the crowd at the Ascend Amphitheater about the time long ago when Brooks was just getting started in the business and he opened for her on tour. She went on to play Brooks' 1990 single "Not Counting You." Aldean turned up later in the evening to play Brook's 1989 single "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" and told Brooks that he'd had posters of him on the wall when he was growing up (via Rolling Stone Country).
When Clarkson came onstage toward the end of the night, she performed "We Shall Be Free" before bemoaning the fact that Wariner wasn't around to sing his song "The Weekend." Wariner and Brooks had performed "Longneck Bottle" earlier in the night, but Wariner didn't hang around. Until Brooks called him back, that is. He invited Wariner onstage for a completely surprise performance, so surprising to Wariner, in fact, that he had to concentrate to remember the lyrics to "The Weekend."
Last but not least, Yearwood came out to sing two songs with her husband. The duo performed "In Another's Eyes" and "Walk Away Joe." And while he didn't make his way front and center, Randy Travis was spotted backstage enjoying the festivities. Read morehere.
TMZ reports that doctors suggest carefully monitoring heart rate during potential flare-ups of the autoimmune condition, with which Selena Gomez and other high-profile stars also live.
"Lupus needs to be constantly monitored and this minor setback should not affect the rest of her tour," Braxton's team announced in a statement via her official Twitter account after Braxton was hospitalized for treatment of the condition. See the videohere.
Typically concert music videos combine energetic shots of an artist performing with behind-the-scenes footage of what life is like between shows. Swindell plays with that tradition, though. He instead blends brief performative moments onstage, where he gets the crowd revved up, with more personal shots that ostensibly show him "after hours."
Wearing a "CS" hat, Swindell stands underneath a bridge and walks darkened street–presumably after his show–and bemoans the fact that the woman who has his number hasn't called. Even when he can turn it on at his concerts and give fans a good time, privately he's wounded when love doesn't come his way. It's a sentimental, personalized play on the music video trope that inevitably arises in every artist's career. Watch the videohere.
A spokesperson for Simon and Schuster confirmed in September that they would indeed be publishing a book by the rapper. "Gucci Mane is one of the most influential and revered hip hop artists in the world," the spokesperson told FADER.
"His impact on American music is profound. This will be a major memoir revealing the life and times of the artist and man, chronicling his youth, ascent to the top of the Atlanta trap scene, incarceration, struggles with addiction and personal rebirth." Read morehere.
Lil Wayne and Jeezy have worked together several times in the past, but "Bout That" is a chill, boastful track that finds Jeezy looking back on his critically acclaimed Trap or Die mixtape.
Lil Wayne, meanwhile, is sick of people talking behind his back. "Jumped off the porch at eleven/ B—-, I been about it/ I'm gang gang, I been silent/ Go Bin Laden on anybody/ Talking all that s— and we gon have to talk to you in private," Lil Wayne raps in his verse, which comes with a slight echo effect as if he were performing in a warehouse. All in all it adds to the already slick vibes coming off "Bout That." Read morehere.
Both music stars hit Instagram on Monday night (Oct. 24) to let their fans know that the accomplished dancer had gone missing. Quigley, who performed in Rihanna's "S.O.S." video and joined her onstage several times, urged fans to help locate the dancer, who disappeared early Sunday morning. Rihanna posted a video on Instagram of Quigley, a resident of North Bergen, New Jersey.
The North Bergen Police Force tweeted on Tuesday evening (Oct 25) "@nbpolice & @NYPDnews have located SHIRLENE QUIGLEY. She is safe and being treated at an undisclosed location." Read Rihanna and Elliot's original postshere.
