The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
The leaked poster
Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age will be at Lollapalooza this summer in Chicago, that is if a leaked tour poster is correct. Billboard spilled the beans months ago that NIN would be playing Lollapalooza, but that was never confirmed by the band or by concert organizers. The Chicago Tribute got their hands on a leaked poster that confirmed Nails and also Queens of the Stone Age. Now, there are ton more other folksy-type music on the docket, but even those aren’t fully confirmed. I wonder if the unpaid intern that leaked the poster got to keep his job. Organizers plan on officially announcing the lineup April 9th.
Warped Tour Announced
The Vans Warped Tour will be hitting up Tinley Park, Illinois July 20th, and at the Verizon Wireless Ampitheater July 24th, and with it comes a mix of hard rock and heavy metal acts plus some punk, hip hop and electronica artists. Festival organizer Kevin Lyman says that when he brought the tour together back in 1995, he always wanted it to be about diversity in music. When it comes to the harder bands, fans can expect to see Black Vail Brides, Black Dahlia Murder, Used and others.
Slipknot on Saturday Night Live? That would be bad ass, and a push from fans with a petition is calling for just that! Plus, it’s got the backing of front man Corey Taylor and percussionist Shawn Clown Crahan and Roadrunner Records! I think its safe to say that it also has the backing of 92.7 QLZ. A Facebook page devoted to the attempt already has nearly 14,000 Likes.
