MJ1.JPGMichael Jackson has postponed portions of his “This Is It” 50-show stint at London’s O2 Arena. Opening night was supposed to be July 8th, and is now pushed back to July 13th. Three other early July shows won’t happen until March 2010. Jackson’s people are citing the need for more rehearsal time as the reason behind the postponement. Refunds will be issued for those who can’t attend the rescheduled shows.

depeche1.JPGDepeche Mode cancelled three more shows this week on the European leg of their Sounds of the Universe tour. This brings a total of 9 cancelled shows overall due to lead singer Dave Gahan’s gastroenteritis. The band is currently deciding whether to reschedule the missed shows or cancel them. Depeche Mode is set to continue their tour in the U.S. in July, so here’s hoping Gahan makes a full recovery by then.

greenday22.JPGThe one retailer that has single-handedly ruined America, Wal-Mart, is refusing to sell Green Day’s new album 21st Century Breakdown due to profanity and content. Wal-Mart requires artists to censor their albums before they sell them in their stores, and Green Day has refused to comply with their policy. I am not a Green Day fan, but this move has actually made me want to buy their albums. Who the fuck is Wal-Mart, the most unethical of all retailers, to force art to be censored? Censorship standing on it’s own is enough bullshit, but when Wal-Mart tries to censor it’s almost too much for me to handle.

These guys have been doing it up big, recently headlining their first gig at the legendary First Avenue and performing at the upcoming Rock the Garden, all without the backing of a label.
