Multi-million selling Norwegian trio a-ha will return to North
America next week for 7 shows, before heading back to Europe for the final leg of their year-long world-wide Farewell Tour. The band will perform together for the very last time in
Oslo on 4 December 2010.

Following a fantastic international career spanning 25 years and over 35 million
albums sold, a-ha’s Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy will perform their final shows together exactly 25 years after the release of the band’s multi-platinum
debut album Hunting High & Low and debut single “Take On Me”, which reached number 1 in 27 countries including the USA. Since that time, “Take On Me”
has been played 3 million times on American radio… the equivalent of 375 times a day for 22 years! For a blast from the past, check out the video for “Take On Me”

BEST MUSIC LIVE’S TOP 10 REASONS TO HEAD TO COACHELLA THIS WEEKEND

Los Angeles, CA – April 10, 2010 – With only 6 days left ’til of one of the biggest music festivals you may be contemplating if you can afford to attend this year or not. Tickets for the 3 day music
and art extravaganza are $269, and in food and drink, and hotel if your not camping, and it can add up. However, Coachella has typically had historical shows of epic proportions – like Beck, Tool,
and Rage Against the Machine (1999), or Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Beastie Boys, Iggy Pop, and the Stooges (2002), or Radiohead, The Cure, and Kraftwerk (2004), or Prince, Roger Waters, and Jack Johnson
(2008). This year will be no different – and here are 10 reasons why you should make the investment for your musical enrichment:

  1. The  obvious – great headliners
    The headliners include Jay-Z, who for the first time in the US played a festival last summer at All Points West to replace the vacancy left by the Beastie Boys. And let me tell you
    from being there and seeing that show was beyond expectations. He opened with Beastie Boy’s song “No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn” in honor of them (having to cancel due to Adam’s illness). He went
    to cover later in his set Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” as a tribute to Michael who …

MALCOM MCLAREN LOST HIS BATTLE WITH CANCER YESTERDAY IN NYC, HE WAS 64.

New York, NY – Malcom McLaren had been fighting the battle with cancer for a number of years and “had recently been in appearance of full health which then rapidly deteriorated” according to Les
Malloy, spokesman for McLaren. His brand of cancer was mesothelioma which effects the tissue surrounding the organs. He was probably best known for his role as manager for the punk-rock band, Sex
Pistols. However, there were many bands he was involved with including New York Dolls, Adam and the Ants, Bow wow wow, Jimmy the Hoover, and even produced his own music. He was a raconteur, a
designer, a harberdasher, an artist, a producer, a visionary, a friend, a publicist, an instigator, a free thinker, a director, a narrator, a motivator, and an inspiration to the whole punk
generation.

Malcolm Robert Andrew McLaren (22 January 1946 – 8 April 2010)

“For me Malc was always entertaining, and I hope you remember that. Above all else he was an entertainer and I will miss him, and so should
you.”

–Johnny Rotten (4/8/2010)

Chrissie Hynde noted, “What Malcolm would do was put people in motion…His idea, and what he tried to put together, would never be the obvious, and it wouldn’t be what anyone else
would try.

“Malcolm was, above all, the Great Raconteur” — …
