KATY PERRY’S ‘WITNESS’ TOUR DELAYED – (08/18/2017)

Katy Perry has pushed back the start of her upcoming Witness tour due to “unexpected production delays.”

The tour was originally set to kick off September 7th in Columbus, Ohio, but will now begin September 19th in Montreal. Most of the shows scheduled before September 7th have been rescheduled, however, Perry’s planned performance in Buffalo, New York, on September 16th has been canceled.

“Due to unavoidable production delays, major elements of my tour stage design could not be available for me to rehearse on until this week,” Perry said in a statement about the delay on Instagram – alongside a caption that said there was good and bad news to share.

The good news is the announcement of her opening acts for the tour, which will include Noah Cyrus from September 19th through November 1st, Purity Ring from November 7th to December 20th and Carly Rae Jepsen from January 5th to February 5th.

Perry will host MTV’s Video Music Awards on August 27th. Sept 29th and 30th – TD Garden in Boston.

PROMOTER APOLOGIZES FOR ARIANA GRANDE CONCERT IN SOUTH KOREA – (08/18/2017)

Hyundai Card Co. has apologized for what is being criticized as a “disrespectful” concert performance by Ariana Grande in South Korea. Grande has been bombarded with negative feedback from South Korean fans over her concert held Tuesday at the Gocheok Sky Dome in western Seoul, part of her 2017 Dangerous Woman world tour.

Criticism centers on Grande’s supposed indifferent attitude toward Korean fans. The singer arrived just three hours before the concert on Tuesday and went onstage without a rehearsal. Then she left right after the concert.

Among the ticket types were the pricey $570 VIP tickets, which allowed buyers to watch the singer’s pre-show rehearsal. Some ticket holders asked for refunds after learning there would be no rehearsal. Many have also pointed out Grande’s apparent lack of willingness to connect with the fans during the show.

Hyundai Card, which invited the singer to South Korea, apologized to disappointed fans via Facebook. “Due to the situation of the artist and unexpected circumstances such as bad weather, we have caused inconvenience to many attendees,” the company said. The company also explained that it is in talks with the party that sold the VIP tickets to provide refunds as soon as possible. Hyundai Card said the premium tickets were sold through Grande’s U.S. management company via an American website.

Chung Tae-young, the company’s CEO, also commented that Grande’s “decisions, other than the show itself, have left much to be desired.” Grande “arriving right before the concert and leaving immediately, avoiding the press has left the impression as if the concert itself was mechanical,” Chung wrote.

“If Korea’s current situation was worrisome, it would be good if she had shown the courage and sincerity she displayed at Manchester,” said Chung. “Or,” he added, “it would have been better if she was just honest and canceled the concert.”

On May 22nd, 22 people died and more than 200 were injured when a suicide bomber detonated a backpack full of explosives after a Grande concert in Manchester, Britain. Grande returned to Manchester on June 4th and sang at a charity tribute concert to honor the victims.

JUSTIN BIEBER RELEASES ‘FRIENDS’ SINGLE – (08/18/2017)

After teasing the song earlier in the week, Justin Bieber has released his new single “Friends.” The tune, set to an ‘80s-inspired beat, has Justin reflecting on the end of a relationship and not quite accepting that it’s over. He wants to stay in his ex’s life despite the breakup.

“Though we didn’t end this so good/But you know we had something so good/So I’m wondering/Can we still be friends?/Can we still be friends?/Doesn’t have to end/And if it ends, can we be friends?” Justin sings on the chorus.

The song is a collaboration with producer BloodPop, who worked with Justin on his hit “Sorry.”
