Organiser Of Sold Out David Bowie Tribute Show Books Another Night


David Bowie Michael Stipe Perry Farrell

Michael Stipe, Laurie Anderson, The Roots, Cat Power, and Perry Farrell signed on to perform a selection of Bowie's greatest hits at Carnegie Hall on 31 March (16) before learning their hero was sick - and the tribute gig became a memorial after news of the rocker's death hit the headlines on Monday (11Jan15).

The show quickly sold out and scalpers started selling tickets for thousands of dollars.

Stunned by the sudden popularity of his annual tribute concert, organiser Michael Dorf has secured Radio City Music Hall for 1 April (16), so the show can go on.

Annie Lennox And Perry Farrell Featured On New Music Interview Series


Annie Lennox Perry Farrell John Lydon

Longtime Rolling Stone writer Steve Baltin fronts the programme, which premiered on Thursday (15Oct15) on Internet streaming service Hulu.

Lennox and Farrell, along with Sex Pistols' star John Lydon and the Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne, are the first four guests on Riffing With, and Baltin hopes fans will take a liking to the more easy-going nature of the show.

"Riffing With is just hanging out and talking with great artists," Baltin tells Billboard.com. "Sitting with people like Perry, Serj (Tankian) and Travis (Barker) in their homes, chilling with artists where they are most comfortable, you find out the most amazing things, like that Perry Farrell bartended for his siblings' parties when he was five years old or that Wayne Coyne played quarterback on a football team. I've interviewed these artists for years and never knew that about them."

Perry Farrell: 'I Didn't Want Metallica Headlining Lollapalooza In 1996'


Perry Farrell Metallica Lollapalooza

James Hetfield and his bandmates return to headline Lollapalooza this year (15), and Farrell admits they'll have a much warmer welcome - because he has grown to like the band and its music.

He tells Rolling Stone, "I was very angry the first time they played Lollapalooza. I helped create the genre alternative, and alternative was against hair metal, teased-out hair, spandex, bulls**t rock music.

"Metallica, in my estimation at that time, wasn't my thing. I was into alternative and punk and underground... (I was) kind of harsh (on Metallica)... (It was) not the first group that I didn't want to play Lollapalooza, because I have an obligation to my patrons. I'm all about genuine, authentic, heartfelt, the real deal. So I was not sure about Metallica back in those days.
