Lady GaGa tapped for David Bowie tribute, singing National Anthem for Super Bowl

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Many artists expressed their interest in paying homage to music icon David Bowie at next week's Grammy Awards, but only one of them was chosen to carry out the tribute. Lady GaGa was selected by the awards show producer Ken Erlich to perform a medley of the legendary artist's songs under the musical direction of Nile Rodgers, who produced Bowie's biggest-selling album Let's Dance. The segment is expected to be six to seven minutes long and squeezed into the 3-hour televised ceremony, airing Monday, February 15 on CBS. Prior to 'Music's Biggest Night,' Lady GaGa will sing the National Anthem at this weekend's Super Bowl festivities happening at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday, February 7. Game time for Sunday's event is 3:30 pm. Coldplay with special guest Beyonce are booked for the Halftime Show.

The Smashing Pumpkins are the latest act to announce a Seattle date on their tour. The Grammy-winning rock band will play the Paramount Theatre on March 22 as part of an acoustic outing that features Liz Phair opening all 16 shows, which include performances in Portland, Denver, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago and Nashville. Tickets for the Smashing Pumpkins, led by Billy Corgan, are priced between $32.75 and $62.75 and are now on sale online at Tickets.com, 24-hour ticket kiosks located outside the Paramount, Moore and Neptune theaters, Sonic Boom Records in Ballard, in person at the Paramount box office, or by phone at 1-877-STG-4TIX.

Another newly added show to the music calendar is Esperanza Spalding. The Portland native, who combines jazz, classical, soul and pop elements together for an elegant, smooth sound, will appear March 10 at The Showbox Market. You might recall Spalding interviewing with Seattle Gay News a few years ago just before headlining the Portland Jazz Festival. She's an amazing live performer, so if you wanna be blown away go see this lady in concert. Tickets, priced at $35 ($40 at the door, day of show), are on sale now at axs.com.

Judy Collins has sold out all performances of her three-night residence at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley. The acclaimed singer-songwriter, who has released over 50 albums in her long career since debuting in 1961, sold out the first two shows on March 7 and 8 in 48 hours and sold out the third concert on March 9 in 48 hours as well. Consider yourself fortunate if you have tickets to either of these Jazz Alley performances, as the famed folk artist and social activist is likely to entertain crowds with such classics as 'Send in the Clowns' and her cover of Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides, Now.' Collins was born in Seattle.

Grease is indeed the word. The presentation of Grease Live last weekend on Fox was not only impressively done, it also drew an audience of over 12 million people in the U.S., the highest-rated live musical since The Sound of Music in 2013. The televised production featured Julianne Hough as Sandy, Aaron Tveit as Danny, Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy, Mario Lopez as Fontaine and himself, Ana Gasteyer as Principal McGee and Joe Jonas as Johnny Casino. In case you missed it, Grease Live is streaming now on Hulu.

Finally, I'll preview the Grammy Awards in next week's issue, including picks and predictions. Thus far, Adele, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Little Big Town, Ellie Goulding, Andra Day, Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt, James Bay, Tori Kelly, The Mavericks and Lady Gaga are all scheduled to perform.
