Beyonce plays North Carolina, but offers support to fight HB2 law

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Beyonce is among the artists who decided to perform in North Carolina, appearing at Raleigh's Carter-Finley Stadium on May 2 as part of 'The Formation World Tour.' But the pop-R&B superstar didn't ignore the controversy happening right now in the Tar Heel state. Instead, she offered her voice in support of bringing the HB2 law down. 'It is important for us to bring attention to those who are committed to being good and carrying on the message of equality in this core of controversy,' she stated on her website. 'Among the many organizations doing the good work to get this bill overturned, there is Equality NC, a local organization dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) North Carolinians.' Her full statement can read at beyonce.com. Beyonce will perform May 18 at CenturyLink Field here in Seattle.

Due to popular demand, an additional 'I Love the '90s Tour' concert will be staged at the Tacoma Dome on August 26, a day before the previously announced show at Marymoor Park (August 27). Expected performers on the multi-artist bill for Tacoma are Salt-n-Pepa, All 4 One, Color Me Badd, Rob Base, Coolio, Tone Loc and Young MC. Tickets, priced at $25.50, $45.50, $65.50, $99.50, are on sale now at tacomadome.org, the Tacoma Dome box office, or charge by phone 800-745-3000. Tickets for the Marymoor show are available at axs.com, or ilovethe90stour.com.

Aerosmith lead singer and former 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler is coming to Seattle for a solo performance, touted as 'Steven Tyler...Out on a Limb'. The intimate concert experience is said to feature music by Tyler and his Nashville-based backup band, Loving Mary, plus stories from his childhood and his career as a frontman for the legendary rock group. The Seattle concert is set for July 8 at McCaw Hall, just a few days after the tour launches at the Venetian Theater in Las Vegas. Tickets for Steven Tyler are available through LiveNation.com.

The Washington State Fair concert lineup is complete, kicking off September 4 with country hottie Tim McGraw, followed by Creedence Clearwater Revisited on September 7, For King & Country with Matt Maher on September 12, Charlie Wilson with Joe on September 16, Alan Jackson on September 17, Chris Young with Cassadee Pope on September 19, Dierks Bentley on September 22 and Train with Magic! on September 25. A few non-musical shows and special events are also scheduled. For a full list of performers and ticket information, go to thefair.com/concerts.

Die Antwoord has announced a summer tour date in Redmond, July 15 at Marymoor Park. The South African trio have yet to reveal details on a new album, although the name has been changed three times already; currently it's being titled We Have Candy.

The Dolly Parton concert at Kent's ShoWare Center on September 21 is already sold out; all tickets were purchased within 20 minutes from the time they went on sale. No word yet on additional tour dates.

In case you hadn't heard, let me be the first to tell you that legendary stage and film actress Rita Moreno will appear live in the Puget Sound this fall. Her performance dates and venues are as follows: October 13 at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in Olympia, October 15 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts in Edmonds and October 16 at the Pantages Theater in Tacoma. Moreno was a 2015 Kennedy Center Honors inductee, invited into the prestigious group of artists last December. Tickets for each of her concerts are available at the respective venue box offices.

If you haven't listened to Radiohead's brand new single 'Burn the Witch,' do it now. Now! It's a haunting, upbeat track with an intense orchestral arrangement at the end. The British four-piece released the track and music video on May 2 to fans and by 8 p.m. (PST) that evening it had been viewed over 2.2 million times on YouTube. The band is expected to announce proper tour dates soon, aside from its scattered festival appearances; Radiohead last played Seattle in 2012, at Key Arena. The music video, directed by Chris Hopewell, is creepy as hell, yet really cool.

Finally, Celine Dion will receive the ICON Award and Britney Spears will be given the Millennium Award at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, scheduled for May 22 in Las Vegas. Spears is set to perform a medley of her hits on the ceremony, which will also feature performances by Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Pink, Justin Bieber, The Go-Go's, Tove Lo, Shawn Mendes and DNCE. Dion will appear on the telecast, as well, and has chosen to sing 'My Heart Will Go On.' Previous ICON Award recipients are Prince, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond and Jennifer Lopez. The Billboard Music Awards are being co-hosted by Ludacris and Ciara.
