Not long ago, rumors of Britney Spears’ North American musical tour surfaced online. And earlier today, she herself moved to confirm the rumors by stating that the speculation is indeed true. During her performance on Good Morning America, which was recorded on Sunday but aired today, Britney shared the news with her millions of fans.

The first show of the series is expected to be held in Sacramento on June 17, followed by 26 more consecutive concerts, with the tour concluding in Toronto on August 13. In a brief conversation with the show host Robin Roberts, Britney announced that she will be accompanied by Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias during her nearly two-month-long journey. More details about the joint shows of these pop superstars will be revealed in the coming days.

Britney changed costumes multiple times while delivering exceptional performances of “Hold It Against Me,” “Big Fat Bass,” and “Till the World Ends,” all from her new album Femme Fatale, which is scheduled to be released in US stores later today. Her selection of skin-tight dresses showcased her curvy physique and emphasized one of the album’s main themes, ‘Britney’s sexiness.’

New Home Theater System

If you enjoy going to the movie theater after a long day of work, but find it to be expensive, then a home theater system might be the perfect solution for you.

Many people believe that a home theater installation is a luxury only available to the wealthy. This is because setting up a home theater system that replicates the experience of a real movie theater can require a significant investment.

However, I believe that if you go to the movies every night for a year or so, you will end up spending the same amount of money or even more than what you would have invested in a home theater installation. Therefore, creating a smart home theater in your own house could be a better idea.

If you have a limited budget, you can start with a simple home theater system installation and upgrade it later when you have enough funds. You can find valuable tips for your home theater setup by reading articles from home theater magazines. Home theater experts write columns and publish articles that provide owners with useful advice regarding their home theater installations. You are sure to find informative articles that will …

Rock Music in the Last 20 Years

Over the last two decades or so, rock music has undergone significant changes, but some elements have remained unchanged as well. The main aspect that has shifted is the emergence of new genres, along with the reinterpretation of older genres with unique branding. This is partly driven by genuine sentimentality and partly influenced by record companies playing it safe by re-releasing music styles that align with general fashion resurgences. Perhaps the dominant factor in these occurrences is the attitude of record labels.

The rock music scene at the end of the 1980s was not a happy one. The departure from the blues-rock roots that had initially grounded early heavy metal had led to a more manufactured and theatrical approach. Hair metal had run its course and quickly became uncool, resulting in the decline of guitar solos and the overall appreciation for a heavy sound.

In the void left by this shift, there was a move towards a sound that still maintained a raw edge but lacked the self-conscious flamboyance of the previous decade. This gave rise to the grunge scene of the early 1990s, with Kurt Cobain becoming a prominent figure within this movement. Unfortunately, with his …

Many of us have read and heard about the devastating destruction caused by the earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, and so has Taylor Hanson. However, unlike the general public, Hanson possesses the financial resources and influence to provide assistance to those in need during this crisis. And that’s exactly what he did by organizing a charity concert in a remarkably short amount of time.

The Hanson band happened to be in Austin for the South by Southwest music festival, and they immediately began brainstorming ideas. Less than 12 hours later, all the major preparations had been made. The band, consisting of siblings, reached out to agents, organizers, and fellow musicians, and everything fell into place seamlessly. In an interview with MTV News at the studio where the concert was set to take place, Taylor Hanson expressed their belief that the music community at South by Southwest should be about more than just individual artists’ promotion. They wanted it to be a platform for providing relief to the millions affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

To their surprise, nothing was being done about it, and the festival seemed to focus primarily on individual artists’ …
