Big news for Swifites, Taylor Swift will be doing her first reported pop album…wait, isn’t she already pop? The country/pop music sensation took to the airwaves on Monday evening for a live stream on Yahoo! announcing to her fans she is releasing her fifth studio album entitled “1989”.
Swift also surprised fans with a brand new single and video called “Shake It Off”. While she has dappled in the pop area before this is Swifts “first documented, official pop album”. Some fans are elated at the idea of the crossover, while others are anxious for Swift to get back to her country roots.
Taylors last album had more of a country bubblegum pop to it, so this isn’t a major change for the artist. Swift fans have already sounded off and love the new music. Swift plans on doing the normal media tour for the album before kicking off the Taylor Swift 1989 Tour 2015.
New album? More live tour dates? Why do artists these days have to be so mysterious about their big announcements! Taylor Swift will be hitting the airwaves tonight at 5:00pm on Yahoo! to make a big announcement, or ‘several announcements’ as she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show last week.
Swift has been working on her 5th studio album since last July 2013 and fans have been eagerly awaiting new music. Taylor used social media to let fans know about the big announcement, first was an Instagram video of her pressing No. 18 in an elevator. On Twitter she posted a picture of her cat with the time 5:00 as a second clue, and then a screenshot of the Yahoo! Homepage. Well played Taylor, well played.
Many are speculating this is the announcement of her album release date and also her complete album could possibly be released tonight to fans as a huge surprise (a Beyonce move). Others have been speculating this is also a announcement of new Taylor Swift 2015 tour dates! Either way fans will be elated for any news they can get from the pop star, be sure to tune in!

Garth Brooks sure knows how to keep his fans on their toes! His big announcement on July 7th had fans waiting for another announcement on July 10th, only to have them waiting for another announcement on July 14th! Maybe today’s announcement will have fans waiting for the next BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!
The good news we have taken out of all this is Garth Brooks is releasing a new album as well as finally joining the digital world and kicking off a huge world tour which will have him traveling the globe for about three years.
Today’s announcement will come from a fan from Atlanta who Brooks met during his Las Vegas residency. Andy from Atlanta was chosen out of the audience in Vegas and asked Brooks where he would be starting his world tour, and Brooks told him he would be the first to know.
Apparently what happens in Vegas doesnt always stay in Vegas cause Garth is keeping his promise by calling Andy Roberts today and telling him where the tour will be kicking off, beyond that is up to Andy how he discloses the details to millions of waiting fans. Andy is preparing to make his announcement this evening, take a look at the Garth Brooks Comeback Tour Ticket page for complete tour details and schedule of events.
All the puzzle pieces are slowly starting to fit into place. AC/DC’s Brian Johnson has announced the band has finished recording their latest album, the album is expected to be released in early 2015 as AC/DC is prepping for a complete world tour in support of the album. Johnson spoke to Classic Rock about the new album:
“It was brilliant over there. We’re done. I’m very excited and we’ve got some great songs.”
This latest news is certainly bittersweet for fans, as it is also a reminder that Malcom Young is in the hospital recovering. AC/DC made an announcement earlier this year that founding member Young would be taking a break to focus on his health. His nephew Stevie Young has been filling in for a replacement for the time being.
“Stevie, Malcolm’s nephew, was magnificent, but when you’re recording with this thing hanging over you and your workmate isn’t well, it’s difficult. But I’m sure he was rooting for us. He’s such a strong man. He’s a small guy but he’s very strong. He’s proud and he’s very private so we can’t say too much. But fingers crossed he’ll be back.”
Fans are anticipating a huge comeback return for the legendary rockers, with AC/DC Tickets to go quickly as soon as the massive announcement is made. Hold on, cause its gonna be a bumpy ride!

City officials did not approve the two other shows and were instantly dragged into a showdown between Brooks, concert promoter and city council.

Today July 1st, Maroon 5 will release their very passionate video for their new single “Maps” off their latest album “V” which is set to be released on September 2nd.
The new album will find the band reuniting with producers Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Shellback and Sam Martin as well as working together again with Gwen Stefani.
Adam Levine spoke earlier about the album and what type of record it was:
“This album is very much all over the place. There’s some stuff on our record that sounds a little like early Maroon 5, and then there’s some stuff that sounds like the newer direction that we went in,” he told us. “We thought we’d get back to certain elements that we’d been missing out on for a while with our original sound, but also bridge the gap with the new stuff that we’ve been doing. I think it’s an all-encompassing kind of record.”
After the album is released it is rumored that Maroon 5 will return to the road for a lengthy world tour. Maroon 5 Tickets page will show details of currently scheduled dates including a July 4th show in Virginia, July 5th in Canada and July 13th in Seoul Korea.
