CHRISTINA AGUILERA!

Christina Aguilera

CHRISTINA AGUILERA!

  • By DENNIS PETRONE

In the six years since Christina Aguilera released an album, fans have anxiously waited. We’ve seen her on the screen in such appearances as a winning judge on NBC’s hit sing-star show The Voice. We’ve seen pics of her baby on Instagram. Now we’re finally getting the goods: Her eighth studio album. And it was well-worth the wait!

 “Accelerate” was released in the middle of June with two major singles pushed out in advanced: “Twice” and “Fall in Line.” The album is an audience pleaser and also offers something new artistically. Aguilera’s signature upper-range growl can be heard alongside R&B raps totally new for the singer. And with the additional star power from including other featured artists such as Ty Dolla $ign and rapper 2 Chainz, the album pops in all the right places.

“I feel like a new artist again, which is so refreshing,” Aguilera explained in a recent interview. “It’s what I’ve been needing for so long.” Having been deemed the “Pop Princess” early in her career and having earned five Grammy Awards, one Latin Grammy Award and even a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it’s hard to know what was so wrong with the old one. But her newest album is smarter and stronger. And we’re loving it.

FLORENCE TOURS!

Florence + The Machine

FLORENCE TOURS!

  • By DENNIS PETRONE

The dogs days are long over with the release of Florence and The Machine’s fourth studio album High as Hope released by Republic Records and Virgin EMI Records late last month. The group has always had a niche indie following who is highly loyal and engaged. It’s part of their punk-pop-rock style and it’s everything right with music at this moment.

Three singles preceded the album’s full release and have been steadily climbing the charts since: “Sky Full of Song”, “Hunger” and “Big God.” While the group is primarily led by vocalist Florence Welch and keyboardist Isabella Summers, it features collaboration from a wide range of other musicians giving this new album depth and breadth.

All hasn’t been peaceful for Florence. Along her journey she’s peaked the charts and been public about her recovery. But it’s all made it into her latest album and her latest sounds. “Before, I thought I ran on a chaos engine,” Florence said in a recent interview. “But the more peaceful I am, the more I can give to the work. I can address things I wasn’t capable of doing before.” A true inspiration.

And I’m Telling You… Get ready LA as a powerhouse performer will be making her Hollywood Bowl debut next month with a voice that is timeless.  The one and only Jennifer Hudson will be in concert appearing with the Hollywood Bowl orchestra for two nights July 6th and 7th.

The multi Grammy and Academy Award-winning artist who skyrocketed to fame as a finalist on American Idol in 2004 and then won a supporting actress Oscar for playing Effie White in the film version of Dreamgirls (stealing the film’s spotlight with her unforgettable rendition of And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going) is often compared to her personal idols Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, and Aretha Franklin (it was just announced that she will play Aretha in the upcoming bio pic).  Like them she started out singing gospel music in her church choir in Chicago.

Her musical talents alongside her acting ability have been showcased in major films, TV shows like Smash and Empire and most recently on Broadway as Shug Avery in the revival of The Color Purple.  And she has been a popular coach on The Voice for many seasons.

Her hit songs on the Billboard charts from her three bestselling albums include Spotlight, If This Isn’t Love, Where You At; No One Gonna Love You, I Can’t Let Go and I Got This.  She recently released two breakout hits from her fourth album: Remember Me and Burden Down.

This is the perfect show for classic rock fans young and old! It combines the music that Pink Floyd fans have loved for years with today’s most advanced entertainment technology to create a rich, lush, sensory experience.

For the uninitiated — Pink Floyd was an English rock band formed in London in 1965. The group achieved international acclaim with its progressive and psychedelic music. Distinguished by its use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, extended compositions, and elaborate live shows, Pink Floyd is one of the most commercially successful and influential groups in popular music history. The band was inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Featuring all of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits and having played for over three million people, this Laser Spectacular has become a cultural phenomenon and an unforgettable evening!
