Although the Reputation Stadium Tour kicked off with a few dates without surprise guests, something that Taylor Swift made a regular occurrence on her 1989 World Tour, Southern California was in for a special treat this weekend as Swift invited a total of three surprise guests on stage.
Following Friday night’s special guest of Shawn Mendes, fans on Saturday night were treated to surprise performances by Troy Sivan and Taylor’s BBF, Selena Gomez. Performing Selena’s hit single, ‘Hands To Myself’, the two had the Rose Bowl going wild! Let’s hope the special guests continue through the tour, because last night was one to remember.
Watch a clip of the two performing together below.
Selena Gomez has our attention with her steamy new single, ‘Fetish’, ft. Gucci Mane.
No, she isn’t singing about feet or whips, rather the ‘Can’t Keep My Hands To Myself’ singer’s sexy new track is an addictive single, that follows Fifth Harmony and Rae Sremmurd by recruiting another great verse from Gucci.
Selena’s single ‘Bad Liar’ is still getting a ton of love on pop radio, but she may see some competition with herself because ‘Fetish’ is already getting a lot of buzz, only hours after its release.
One thing we know for sure is that Justin Bieber is not a fan of paparazzi, so when he answers a question from TMZ, it must be something he is pretty passionate about. Last night, TMZ caught Justin walking to a friend’s car, and when the cameraman asked Bieber if he can listen to a Weekend song, Justin quickly replied “hell no”. When asked why, the Biebs simply responded, “because that sh*t is wack.”
Is Justin not a fan of Abel’s new album Starboy, or more likely, is he not a fan of the fact that his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, is now dating The Weeknd? Either way, it will be interesting to see if this beef continues to grow.
A few hours ago, the first headlining performances came to a close for the opening night ofSummerfest‘s big 49th Anniversary. Unlike many other premiere music festivals, Milwaukee’s Summerfest brings an especially diverse list of performers to Milwaukee’s lakefront every year. Tonight the World’s Largest Music Festival had some huge names, with pop superstar Selena Gomez headlining the Marcus Amphitheatre Stage, joined by the Joe Jonas-led DNCE, while the ground stages saw performances from EDM’s Martin Garrix, Willie Nelson, Kiings, Finish Ticket and more.
To no surprise, Milwaukee’s lineup for Summerfest this year is the most diverse of all major music festivals in 2016. Yesterday “the World’s Largest Music Festival” revealed its over 90 headlining acts (with more to come), so today we have our most anticipated headlining acts for Summerfest 2016. This year Summerfest takes place from June 29 – July 3 and July 5 – July 1o at the Summerfest Grounds in Milwaukee, WI and you can check here for ticket information. Ticket prices start at just $13 and $80 right now for an 11-day pass (these are not misprints), with various promotions that run all festival long. Lollapalooza may be having its huge 25th anniversary just 90 miles south, but there is no better way to spend eleven days of your summer at one of the most unique music festivals that the country has to offer.
It wasn’t easy to decide who we are most excited to see at Summerfest this year, but definitely hit the jump to check out our ten most anticipated acts of Summerfest 2016. And be sure to check out Summerfest.com for more information!
If you didn’t know by now, Charlie Puth is definitely #TeamSelena. Currently on his Nine Track Mind Tour, Charlie Puth shared some strong words for the Purpose singer the other night in Dallas. “F*ck you, Justin Bieber,” Puth shared with the Dallas crowd while performing his Selena Gomez collaboration ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’. Puth later tweeted that he was simply joking around and has nothing but great things to say about the ‘Love Yourself’ singer, but either way, he definitely got quite a positive reaction from his sold-out crowd in Texas.
Watch Puth call out the Biebs below and check out Puth’s tour dates and see if he is coming to a city near you.
Last night iHeartRadio and 103.5 KISS FM brought the Jingle Ball Tourto Chicago’s Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL. With a sold out-crowd watching, some of the biggest names in music performed for the Windy City crowd on Wednesday night. Artists like Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, 5 Seconds of Summer, Shawn Mendes, Tove Lo, Hailee Steinfeld, DNCE and (just to name a few) where there to give the packed arena a more than memorable show.
Fans did not waste any time showing up as ‘She’s Kinda Hot’ rockers, 5 Seconds of Summer kicked off the show. Soon after Chicago fans were treated to a beautiful performance from singer/songwriter Charlie Puth, who performed his Paul Walker dedicated track ‘See You Again’, as well as his Meghan Trainor collaboration, ‘Marvin Gaye’.
Next up was singer Conrad Sewell, still a new name to many, but who left a lot of concert goes impressed by his set. Known most for his single ‘Hold Me Up’, Conrad definitely held his own amongst the pop stars on the lineup. To up the energy though, Sewell was followed by newcomers DNCE, led by Joe Jonas. Out of all performances, no one met the fun energy that DNCE brought, especially during the highlight of their set when they performed their best known record, ‘Cake By The Ocean’.
Like Sewell, many may not have expected for R. City to put up one of the night’s best performances. Reminding everyone of their work with other artists, R. City told a moving story behind their Adam Levin-assisted single ‘Locked Away’, and in total put together an awesome set. Soon after R. City hopped off stage, singer Tove Lo put together a great performance of her own. While Tove Lo may be an indie artist on a pop lineup, her records have still dominated the radio, with the entire crowd knowing every word of Tove’s top tracks.
The screams may have been the loudest last night when singer Shawn Mendes hit the stage. While the singer got his initial fame through the phone app Vine, with the monster success of his single ‘Stiches’ (which can still be heard everywhere), Mendes is well on his way to becoming a household name. In the past year alone, Mendes has performed in Chicago a handful of times, including an opening set for Taylor Swift on her 1989 World Tour at Soldier Field. Then to close his set, Mendes invited Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cebello to perform their new single, ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’.
Shawn Mendes wasn’t the only Taylor Swift-associated artist on the lineup though, as next up was singer Hailee Steinfeld. You may know her from her acting (True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2) or even her appearance in T-Swift’s music video for ‘Bad Blood’, but if you don’t know her yet by her singer, you definitely will soon. Steinfeld’s record ‘I Love Myself’ is one of the funnest singles of the second half of 2015, and while she is still new to the game, you wouldn’t guess it by her stage presence.
Following Steinfeld was Fifth Harmony, as Camila Cabello returned to the stage after her huge performance with Mendes. Although Cebello and Mendes make a great team, she makes an even better one with the rest of the Fifth Harmony girls, first made famous on The X Factor. Ever since forming years ago in 2012, Fifth Harmony has consistently put out some big singles.
With the night beginning to wrap up, the energy and talent did not drop off as Selena Gomez hit the stage. Opening her set, mixing some of her new singles with the old (‘Same Old Love’ and ‘Love You Like a Love Song’), Gomez’s set was extended when compared to some of those before her, and rightfully so. While some of music’s biggest emerging names kicked off the show, it was only right that a superstar like Gomez get some extra time with the sold-out crowd.
To end the night was a headlining set from Nick Jonas. Providing a much different vibe than his brother Joe did earlier in the night, Jonas brought more than enough energy of his own, while reminding us of just how many hits he already has in his relatively young career as a solo artist. Performing a number of hits from his most recent album (his first in many years), including ‘Levels’ and ‘Chains’, Jonas certainly gave a memorable ending to the awesome night!
