 “I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”

So speaks Dave Grohl of the mission statement made manifest in Foo Fighters’ ninth epic, the aptly titled Concrete and Gold, due out September 15 worldwide on Roswell/RCA Records and available for preorder now. http://smarturl.it/FFCG

Just as Foo Fighters’ anthem of the summer “Run” “opens as a dreamy, slow burner then… quickly turns heavy as thunder” (BILLBOARD) with its “huge triumphant chorus” (STEREOGUM), Concrete and Gold marries some of the most insanely heavy FF riffs ever with lush harmonic complexities courtesy of a first time team-up with producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Pink).

This unlikely alliance came about through a bizarre sequence of surprise musical obsessions and chance encounters: Listening to the radio during a drive roughly four years ago, Grohl first heard “Again and Again” by Kurstin’s band The Bird & The Bee—“It blew my mind… it was so much more sophisticated than anything I’d ever heard and I became obsessed.”

Some months later, Grohl would randomly spot and fanboy out over “the guy from The Bird & The Bee!” a/k/a Greg Kurstin. The two became fast friends over common musical loves with Grohl learning that his new favorite band had been on hiatus due to Kurstin’s workload as a producer.

While Foo Fighters recorded and released Sonic Highways, broke some bones and packed stadiums and arenas on one of the top five grossing tours of 2015, and gifted fans with the St. Cecilia EP, "Greg was becoming one of the biggest producers in the world,” Grohl recalls.

With the writing and recording of the next Foo Fighters album on the horizon, Grohl was eager as always to find fresh challenges for the band: “So I think maybe Greg is the guy that we ask to be our producer because he’s never made a heavy rock record before and we’ve never worked with a pop producer.” Darrel Thorp (Beck, Radiohead) was soon enlisted to mix and engineer. This collective conceived a blueprint of the new record as "Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper... or something like that,” secretly booking into Hollywood’s esteemed EastWest studios to consummate this marriage of extremes... or as Grohl puts it:  “Our noise and Greg’s big brain and all of his sophisticated arrangements and composition.”

Iconic Mexican singer Marco Antonio Solis is celebrating 40 years in the music industry with a highly-anticipated 2017 U.S. Tour that will include a performance at Greensboro Coliseum on Sunday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, June 9 at 10 a.m. at www.ticketmaster.com, the Greensboro Coliseum box office and charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.

The concert is set to commemorate four decades of musical hits from ‘El Poeta del Siglo,’ who throughout his career has garnered five Latin GRAMMYs and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Considered one of the greatest musical living legends in Latin America, Marco Antonio Solis was awarded last year with Billboard’s Lifetime Achievement Award. But that’s not the first time he’s been recognized by the glossy magazine. In 2010, he was named Billboard's Latin Artist of the Decade for his immense chart achievements, which include 30 record breaking songs that hit the top 10 of Hot Latin Songs. Other notable accolades include 2014’s Pop Male Artist of Year by Premio Lo Nuestro and numerous awards by international festival Viña Del Mar, to name a few.

With 18 studio albums, over 40 million album copies sold and over 300 songs to his name, “El Buki” is considered one of the most influential artists in Latin music. Solis is also the only Latin artist to have 12 albums reach the No. 1 spot in Billboard's Top Albums chart.

Jesse & Joy, with 4 studio albums, winners of 7 Latin Grammys, multiple Diamond and Platinum Certifications will delight their fans with their hit songs, “Espacio Sideral” “Llegaste Tu”, “La de la Mala Suerte” “Corre,” and “Llorar” among many others, in what promises to become unforgettable evenings.
