Coldplay Pause Touring Over Environmental Concerns

  Coldplay Pause Touring Over Environmental Concerns On Monday, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin announced to BBC News that the band will not be going on tour for their new album, Everyday Life, until they can offer carbon-neutral concerts. “We’re taking time over the next year or two to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial,” he said. Coldplay’s last tour was in 2016 to 2017 for their album A Head Full of Dreams, which saw them play 122 shows around the world. “Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally,” he said. “We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral. The hardest thing is the flying side of things.

Van Halen is an American hard rock band formed in Pasadena, California in 1972. Credited with "restoring hard rock to the forefront of the music scene"

Wolfgang William Van Halen (born March 16, 1991) is an American musician who is currently the bassist for Van Halen , having replaced Michael Anthony in 2006. He is also the former bassist for the heavy metal band Tremonti. At 28 years old, he is the youngest member of Van Halen .

When Jimmy Kimmel asked Billie Eilish to name any member of Van Halen on his show a few weeks back, she couldn’t.

“Who? No, who is that?” she asked him.

“I’m gonna start crying,” he said.

This supposed lack of knowledge kickstarted a stream of invective on the Internet by know-it-alls who did not realize or did not care that the pop star is 17 and was only 10 when Van Halen put out their last album, 2012’s A Different Kind of Truth.

Now that the reactions have erupted into fever pitch, 28-year-old bassist Wolfgang Van Halen — one of three Van Halens in the band and the son of guitar hero Eddie — weighed in as the voice of reason on the whole thing. “If you haven’t heard of Billie Eilish, go check her out. She’s cool,” he tweeted. “If you haven’t heard of Van Halen, go check them out. They’re cool, too. Music is supposed to bring us together, not divide us. Listen to what you want and don’t shame others for not knowing what you like.”

American Music Award Winners 2019: The Complete List (Updating Live)

  American Music Award Winners 2019: The Complete List (Updating Live) The American Music Awards are taking place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif., with Post Malone, Billie Eilish, and Ariana Grande leading the nominees with six nods each. The lead-up to the AMAs was marred with controversy when Taylor Swift claimed on social media that her former record label Big Machine was preventing her from performing her older hits at the show. Fortunately, an agreement has since been reached that will allow Swift to perform tracks whose masters are retained by Big Machine. Swift is the current record holder for most wins in the artist of the year category with four wins.

Edward Lodewijk Van Halen ([ˈɛdʋɑrt ˈloːdəʋɛjk vɑnˈhaːlə(n)], born January 26, 1955) is a Dutch-American musician, songwriter, and producer.

Happy Birthday, Wolfgang Van Halen ! Edward Van Halen put the fire in the group that bears his name. Wolfgang began making appearances with the band in 2004 during Van Halen ’s tour that year, appearing during his father’s extended guitar solo spot and performing the song “316” with him.

In Eilish’s defense, Van Halen have been largely inactive since she entered her teen years. She was 13 when they played their most recent concert, in October 2015, and seemingly have no plans to play any more in the near future. Frontman David Lee Roth will be launching a Las Vegas residency next month, and Wolfgang has been teasing a solo album in recent years. Roth has even gone so far as to say the band was “finished” in recent interviews.

“I’ve inherited the band, de facto, whatever that means,” Roth said in September. “I think it means, you’ve inherited it, carry this proudly. Van Halen isn’t going to be coming back in the fashion that you know. And, that being said, Eddie’s got his own story to tell — not mine to tell it.”
