Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani’s Son Kingston Performs at Blake Shelton’s Bar — Gwen Stefani’s and Gavin Rossdale’s 17-year-old son, Kingston Rossdale, took the stage at Blake Shelton’s bar last Friday (August 11th). The young singer — who, believe it or not, looks quite a bit like his father — sang a selection of original songs while Stefani and Shelton watched with pride. No word yet on whether he’ll take his show on the road, but, in the meantime, you can catch daddy Rossdale’s band Bush (tickets here) and Stefani (tickets here)!
Netflix Sending Users Up to 10 Random DVDs to Close Out Mail Service — Earlier this year, Netflix announced they’ll be discontinuing their DVD-by-mail service, much to the dismay of physical media fans everywhere. Luckily, as a parting act of goodwill, subscribers can opt-in to receive up to 10 random DVDs from the service’s massive library. And in case you’re not a subscriber but want in on the promotion, you can still sign up for the service before it’s officially shut down (up until August 28th at 11:59 p.m. PT).
Foo Fighters Bring Out Michael Bublé for “Haven’t Met You Yet” at Outside Lands — Foo Fighters have made a habit out of pulling fans up on stage to perform with them, particularly to sing Micheal Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet” as part of introducing new live drummer Josh Freese. At the Outside Lands Music Festival, a very particular fan was picked to sing the very particular song — Bublé himself. Finally, we can all rest easy with the knowledge that Bublé has, in fact, now met Dave Grohl, who presumably inspired the original tune. Grab Foo Fighters tickets here for your chance to make like Bublé and sing “Haven’t Met You Yet” with Grohl and the gang.
Talking Heads to Reunite for Stop Making Sense Live Q&A — Big news for anyone who had “Talking Heads Reunion” on their 2023 bingo card: You win by a technicality. The members of the iconic rock group are set to once again publicly gather in the same room for the first time in two decades, all with the purpose of answering questions after a screening of the re-released Stop Making Sense. The event will go down at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11th. Hopefully, the rampant speculation of their imminent return to the stage is soon to follow.
New Guns N’ Roses Song “Perhaps” Accidentally Leaks Via Bar Jukeboxes — If you recently spent $17 at the bar to queue up your favorite pub jam via TouchTunes, you might have stumbled across the new Guns N’ Roses song “Perhaps” before it was officially released. The digital jukebox accidentally had the song available as a selection before the song had seen the light of day. The band quickly responded by dropping the song themselves, marking Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan’s “first collective new composition and recording together in 30 years.” You can also catch the band live by nabbing tickets here!
