About Daryl Hall & John Oates
From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums—’76’s Bigger Than Both of Us, ’80’s Voices, ’81’s Private Eyes, ‘82’s H2O, ‘83’s Rock N Soul, Part I and ‘84’s Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.” By 1987, the RIAA recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history, a record they still hold today.
On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton.
In 2014, Daryl and John were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 2017 finds Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.

About Tears For Fears
Beyond selling 30 million albums worldwide, performing to countless sold out audiences, and winning various awards, the DNA of Tears For Fears—Roland Orzabal [vocals, guitar, keyboards] and Curt Smith [vocals, bass, keyboards]—remains embedded within three generations of artists. Quietly casting a shadow over rock, hip-hop, electronic dance music, indie, and beyond, their music has been sampled by Kanye West, The Weeknd, David Guetta, Drake, and more, while getting covered by Lorde, Adam Lambert, Ally Brooke Hernandez, Gary Jules, and Disturbed, to name a few. Meanwhile, classic songs figure prominently everywhere from The Wire and Donnie Darko to Straight Outta Compton and Mr. Robot.

Representing an inimitable intersection of pop palatability, clever and cognizant lyricism, guitar bombast, and new wave innovation, their catalog spans a string of classic albums, namely the gold-certified debut The Hurting [1983], quintuple-platinum BRIT Award-winning Songs from the Big Chair [1985], and Seeds of Love [1989]. The latter proved to be Roland and Curt’s last collaboration together until Everybody Loves A Happy Ending in 2004, which rekindled the creative fire between them. Breaking another quiet spell, the boys engaged in a three-year touring whirlwind across North America, Japan, South Korea, Manila, and South America beginning in 2010. 2013 saw them return with their first recorded music in a decade: a cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start.” It proved to be a welcome addition to their three-decade discography of immortal hits ranging from “Mad World,” “Change,” and “Pale Shelter” to “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” “Shout,” “Sowing The Seeds of Love,” and “Everybody Loves A Happy Ending.” Now, 2017 marks the beginning of a new era for the band. Signed to Warner Bros. Records, they will release their seventh full-length album, fifth for Roland and Curt together, and first in 13 years following a summer co-headline tour with Daryl Hall & John Oates.

About Allen Stone
On his third full-length album, soul artist Allen Stone proves himself deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends all pop convention.

Made in collaboration with Swedish soul singer/songwriter/phenom Magnus Tingsek, Radius captures the warm energy of that creative connection and transports the listener to a higher and more exalted plane.

Now including seven exciting bonus tracks, Radius Deluxe will be available March 25th. Among them will be the previously unreleased songs “Voodoo” and “Faithful” as well as a new version of Stone’s energetic single “Freedom”.

The New York Times said the Chewelah, Washington-bred 28-year-old’s lyrics on Radius “promise honest sentiments, grooves built with physical instruments and a gospel-rooted determination to uplift … glimmers of Al Green, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, Prince and a bit of Sting.”

Tearing through nearly 600 shows in just two years – including sold out performances at LA’s Ace Hotel and NYC’s Apollo Theater – Allen Stone is determined to make 2017 yet another impactful year of writing and performance.

JEAN-MICHEL JARRE

TO BRING HIS ‘ELECTRONICA’ WORLD TOUR TO NORTH AMERICA THIS SPRING INCLUDING STOPS AT RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL IN NEW YORK CITY, MICROSOFT THEATER IN LOS ANGELES AND THE GREEK IN BERKELEY, CA

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, JANUARY 27

WITH PRE-SALE LAUNCHING WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25 WITH PRE-ORDER OF ‘OXYGENE 3’ HERE

GRAMMY-NOMINATED ELECTRONIC MUSIC PRODUCER

ANNOUNCES MARCH 24 RELEASE DATE FOR ‘OXYGENE 3’

‘ELECTRONICA 1: THE TIME MACHINE’ (ULTRA MUSIC)

NOMINATED FOR “BEST DANCE / ELECTRONIC ALBUM” GRAMMY

Current Grammy-nominated artist and French electronic music composer and producer JEAN-MICHEL JARRE’s reputation for the spectacular is unmatched, having been one of the first artists in the world to perform electronic music as we know it today. It has been announced he will bring his ‘Electronica’ World Tour to North America, marking his first-time tour here. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 27. Pre-order the physical edition of his most recent release Oxygene 3 due out March 24 here and get presale access for the North American Tour Wednesday, January 25 at 10 am local through Thursday, January 26 at 10 pm local.

Today’s announced dates – which kick off May 9 at the Sony Center for Performing Arts in Toronto, Canada – mark JARRE’s first-ever proper North American trek. Expect JARRE to bring his critically-acclaimed live show–which blazed across the European continent last year, to high-acclaim–to many hallmark venues on this continent including Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Bell Centre in Montreal, The Greek in Berkeley, Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and more. All dates follow below.

Famed for staggering visuals and the use of cutting-edge digital technology, which has been seen by millions of people around the world, JARRE’s new live show promises yet again to be a truly immersive musical journey. He’ll showcase brand new music from his two-part LP ELECTRONICA and most recent release OXYGENE 3, alongside classic material from milestone albums such as Oxygene and Equinoxe. View a video here of JARRE performing his signature laser harp “The Time Machine,” the title track of his current Grammy-nominated album (“Best Dance/Electronic Album”), ELECTRONICA 1: THE TIME MACHINE.

With his renowned city-scale concerts, JEAN-MICHEL JARRE has set Guinness World records across the globe, including: His memorable one-off city-scale concert in Houston in 1986 for NASA’s 25th Anniversary and in a moving commemoration of the Challenger Mission to which over 1.3 million people gathered to share this groundbreaking show at the foot of Houston’s skyline; an audience of 2.5 million in front of La Défense skyline, Paris; and going on to break his very own record in Moscow, when he played to over 3.5 million people for the city’s 850th anniversary.

In late 2016, JARRE unveiled digitally via Sony Music International the final chapter of his OXYGENE trilogy with OXYGENE 3. The album will now be available in physical format in the U.S. as of March 24 in advance of his ‘Electronica’ World Tour. 40 years on from the release of his groundbreaking first OXYGENE album and 20 years on from its sequel–JARRE completed the trilogy with seven new original compositions, titled OXYGENE parts 14-20, to cap off a trailblazing four decades in music. “Oxygène 3 has its place within electronic music’s history,” shared Consequence of Sound while Observer called it “superlative.” Billboard adds, “…If you’re looking for something to get you through the working hours or moments of reflection, put this beast on from beginning to end and watch the productivity and creativity explode.” Take a listen here.

Prior to his tour, JEAN-MICHEL JARRE travels to Los Angeles for an appearance at NAMM, Wednesday, January 18 and will return again in February to Los Angeles to attend the 59th Annual Grammy Awards Ceremony where his album ELECTRONICA 1: THE TIME MACHINE (Ultra Music) is nominated for “Best Dance / Electronic Album.” The first of a two-part album, it features a true who’s-who list of collaborators (Pete Townshend, Moby, Tangerine Dream, etc) and was conceived with JARRE’s wish to encompass the last few decades of electronic music into one mesmerizing LP.

About JEAN-MICHEL JARRE:
JEAN-MICHEL JARRE has been one of the pioneering forces throughout the electronic music scene over the last four decades, having originally made his name in the 1970s for his critically acclaimed album OXYGENE. OXYGENE was unmistakably a catalyst that set electronic music well on its way to becoming the behemoth that it is today, with JEAN-MICHEL’s music and follow through albums (Equinoxe, Magnetic Fields, RendezVous, Chronology) breaking down boundaries of composing and production paving the path for what has become today the most popular genre of music of all time. With over 80 million albums sold worldwide to date, musicians and contemporary DJs often refer to JARRE’s influence and innovation, not only for his music but also for his singular vision and creation of outdoor concerts experience. JEAN-MICHEL JARRE’s legendary concerts have attracted Guinness Record-breaking audiences, with his live shows, often, if not always, taking place in some of the most extraordinary settings worldwide. He was the first western musician ever to be invited to perform in post-Mao China, and has also played the likes of the Great Pyramids in Egypt, The Sahara Desert and The Eiffel Tower, in addition to perhaps his most famous performance ever, where he played to a record 3.5 million people in Moscow. All in all, JARRE has held Guinness World Records for the largest live audiences over the continents not withstanding his memorable one-off city-scale concert in Houston in 1986 for NASA’s 25th Anniversary and in a moving commemoration of the Challenger Mission to which over 1.3 million people gathered to share this groundbreaking show at the foot of Houston’s skyline.

JEAN-MICHEL JARRE is synonymous with the legendary as he continues to break new ground with each piece of music and live performance. Website: www.jeamichelJARRE.com
