Monday Monday

It's a Monday roundup this week, so get over it, already. P.S. The theme this week is the 70s... and follow-ups to previous items...
  • Journey -- complete with new singer Arnel Pineda, who does a better Steve Perry than Perry has in years -- has a new album coming out. Revelation drops June 3, ahead of a U.S. concert tour set to begin in July. A three-disc CD and DVD package, Revelation's first disc consists of 11 re-recorded classics, while the second is filled with 11 new songs, and the third is a live DVD. While it's a bit of a bummer that Revelation will be sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores in North America, it nonetheless registers as a musical event of arena rock-sized proportions...
  • Return to Forever's classic lineup of keyboardist Chick Corea, bassist Stanley Clarke, guitarist Al Di Meola and drummer Lenny White recently announced a tour that will represent their first extensive engagements together in 30 years. The foursome will play more than 50 dates across North America and Europe, featuring primarily classic music from their chart-topping albums. Beginning in Austin, Texas, on May 29th, the legendary supergroup will swing across the U.S. and Canada in June, cross the Atlantic for July dates in Europe from Lithuania to London, then return to the States for an East Coast run of major venues.

  • Oh yeah -- did we mention Sheryl Crow is joining Fleetwood Mac? The longer those initially strange words hang in the air, the more they make perfect sense.

Yeah, Crow and The Mac makes perfect sense. But when they tour will they do her songs too?
