Keith Moon died in 1978, John Entwhistle in 2002, but that hasn't stopped Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend from singing about their generation. The Who's latest tour arrives alongside new material from a forthcoming album, which contains the band's first batch of new tunes since its 2006 release, Endless Wire. Of course, anyone coming to hear hits like "Pinball Wizard" and "Baba O'Riley" won't be disappointed—after decades on the road, the Who is finely-tuned legacy rock and roll machine that knows which side of its bread is buttered.
Throughout much of her new album, Titanic Rising, it's clear that Natalie Mering (a.k.a. Weyes Blood) has the end of the world on her mind. But the looming threat of climate change doesn't stop Mering from writing love songs, even if they're unconventional ones that consider the purpose of and desire for intimacy in an age when people are content to stare at their phones and disconnect from reality. Channeling the lush arrangements of ‘70s folk-singers like Joni Mitchell and Carole King, Mering embraces the melancholy nature of her songs and finds comfort in nostalgia—but she doesn't lose sight of the future we're all barreling toward.
Between the tragic Manchester Arena bombing, the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and the very public end of her brief engagement to SNL star Pete Davidson, the past year has been a rough one for Ariana Grande. But amid the turmoil, the singer released Sweetner, her most impressive collection of songs to date, filled with empowering anthems and soaring R&B ballads (not to mention the inescapable single “God is a Woman”). The former Nickelodeon star will take her latest album on the road this spring, including a stop at the United Center, where Grande can fill the cavernous venue with her expansive vocal range. No word yet on whether or not her pet pig, Piggy Smalls, will make an appearance, but we're keeping our fingers crossed. Tickets for Ariana Grande's United Center show will go on sale Monday, November 5 at 10am.
