By Shepherd Express Staff
Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks played the BMO Harris Bradley Center just this summer as part of a co-headlining bill with Rod Stewart, but when she returns in February she'll have a lot more company. Fleetwood Mac will headline the Bradley Center on Thursday, Feb. 12, the venue announced today, as part of a tour that will see the return of bandmember Christine McVie to the fold after 16 years a...

Milwaukee's alternative station FM 102.1 has announced the headliners for the first night of its ninth annual Big Snow Show Holiday concert: Cage the Elephant, Alt-J, Fitz and the Tantrums, Vance Joy and Meg Myers.

Since releasing its triumphant sophomore album Repave last year, Volcano Choir has been Justin Vernon's primary concern. The group has toured around the world behind the album, with a pit stop on "The Tonight Show" along the way, and now that tour has taken them full circle with one more show in Milwaukee, the last of their Repave tour. They'll headline the Turner Hall Ballroom at 8 p.m. on Sunday...

By this point you've either succumbed to Iggy Azalea's summer hit "Fancy," or you're fundamentally put off by the rapper who's looking more and more like 2014's answer to Mackelmore (if Mackelmore were an Australian model who rhymed in a very practiced fake Atlanta drawl). Both are perfectly defensible positions. If you're in the pro-Iggy camp, though, you'll get a chance to see her live soon. Tod...

It's been 23 years since a heavily flannelled Pearl Jam released their debut album, Ten, a blockbuster that helped fuel the ’90s alt-rock explosion and introduced the band as the everyman alternative to Nirvana. The band’s long run is particularly noteworthy considering the tragic fates of many of the other Washington grunge bands of the era. In all that time, though, they've never played at M...

After spending a chunk of time on the road promoting her 2012 collaborative album with David Byrne, Love This Giant, St. Vincent will release a new solo album next year, a self-titled record she recorded with Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss, Midlake's McKenzie Smith and returning producer John Congleton, who brought out her wild side on 2011's Strange Mercy.

With August Alsina

Once again this year, 2 Chainz was inescapable on rap radio, thanks to features on singles by just about every name artist in his genre. He received less attention, though, for his own record, B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time, a smarter, more confident sequel to his 2012 debut. Today the Rave announced that the rapper will headline the venue with another rapper who released his own underrated album this year...
