Former Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney is to marry for a third time at a low-key ceremony in London, reports The Daily Telegraph.
The paper claims Sir Paul will wed his girlfriend Nancy Shevell ‘with only close members of his family present’, before jetting off to New York for a party with friends and members of Shevell’s family.
Acclaimed music video director Romain Gavras, who has worked on imaginative, and at times controversial, promos for the likes of M.I.A and French hip hop producer DJ Mehdi, is to have his feature-length directorial debut released via DVD through leading independent film distributors Optimum Releasing next month.
Entitled Our Day Will Come, the film takes its inspiration from Gavras’ own notorious ‘Born Free‘ clip, and is described as follows:
“…a bold and savagely humorous outsider epic, telling the story of Patrick (Vincent Cassel) and Remy (Olivier Barthelemy) a pair of outcasts joined together by their dislike of society and their own red hair.”
Brit School graduate Katy B, chart topper Adele, Anna Calvi and PJ Harvey have all been recognised, and the London-based musician is craving for one of them to join the likes of Speech Debelle and Ms Dynamite by being handed the gong later this year.
The Lightning Seeds are to close the main stage at this year’s Headstock Festival, following Saturday night headliners Echo & The Bunnymen at the non-profit, volunteer and musician led event which takes place at the Newstead and Annesley Country Park, near Nottingham, between September 9-11th.
Just announced for the festival, The Herbaliser Band - one of the UK’s most sought after festival acts – will be giving a rare full band performance, joining The Lightning Seeds on the Main Stage on Sunday 11th. The Lightning Seeds and The Herbaliser Band join a line up of over 100 acts, spread across five stages and dance arenas.
Reformed man-band Take That have broken Bruce Springsteen‘s long-standing record for the highest-grossing residency of all time following their recent eight-date stop at London’s Wembley Stadium as part of their Progress tour, reports Billboard.
The group, which has recently been joined by Robbie Williams who wasn’t a part of their original reunion line-up, have apparently raked in over £38 million for the Wembley shows, comfortably pushing them ahead of the £23.5m Springsteen earned over ten nights at the Giants Stadium in 2003.
On first listen, the track seems an unessential, possibly odd choice of single to follow the guttural rock-out of ‘Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair’ – it trades the blatant chuggery and distortion of that song for a more reflective, even jangly vibe. However, it soon becomes apparent that this song can be filed in the ‘real grower’ category; a great soundtrack to the small amount of summer we have left.
Noel Gallagher‘s career as a solo artist will officially begin on August 21st this year with the release of debut single ‘The Death Of You and Me‘, it has been confirmed today.
