  • Dates Set for 2015 Edition of Allman Brothers Band's Peach Music Festival

    Image Courtesy of Live NationWhile The Allman Brothers Band played what is supposed to be its final concert in October, the group's Peach Music Festival will be coming back in 2015.  The fourth annual edition of the musical extravaganza is confirmed to take place August 13-16 at its usual site -- Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

    The lineup for the festival has not been revealed, but fans can at least expect Allman Brothers frontman Gregg Allman to put in an appearance.

    "I can't wait to be back at the Peach in 2015," says Gregg in a statement.  "The fans at Montage love what we do so much and the bands feed off that.  The Peach is always a great time."

    The Wanee Festival, another annual music event usually hosted by The Allman Brothers Band, recently revealed its initial 2015 lineup, which included various projects featuring individual Allmans members, so it seems likely the Peach fest may offer a similar bill.

    A limited number of early-bird tickets for the Peach Music Festival will go on sale this Monday, December 22, at noon ET.  Those tickets are priced at $99, not including fees.  Various other early-bird packages, including VIP tickets, also will be available.

    In addition to a variety of music acts performing on multiple stages, the four-day festival includes access to a water park, camping and more.

  • Darlene Love to Give Final "Late Show with David Letterman" Holiday Performance Friday

    John Paul Filo/CBSDarlene Love will help David Letterman usher in the holidays one final time when she makes her annual pre-Christmas appearance on CBS' Late Show Friday night.  As always, the acclaimed singer will belt out her soulful yuletide classic "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," a song she's performed on the last Late Show episode before Christmas nearly every year since the program premiered in 1993.  Letterman recently announced that he'll be retiring from the Late Show; his final broadcast will air May 20, 2015.

    Love actually began the tradition back in 1986 on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman.  "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" originally appeared on producer Phil Spector's famous 1963 holiday album, A Christmas Gift for You.  In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Darlene discussed how she felt about singing the tune one last time for Letterman.

    "I'm really trying not to think about it," she admitted.  "When I think about it, I really do get a little emotional.  And David always comes over and gives me the biggest hug.  People can't see what I see when he's hugging me, and looking at me in the eye, and whispering in my ear telling me thanks for coming.  That means more than anything."

    In honor of Love's historic appearance on Friday, the Late Show has put together a video montage of highlights of her previous performances of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."  You can watch the clip now on the Late Show's official YouTube channel.

    Late Show with David Letterman airs at 11:35 p.m. ET/10:35 p.m. CT.

    In other news, Darlene has a number of U.S. concerts on her tour schedule, including four Christmas-themed shows at B.B. King Blue Club in New York City.  Here are all of her upcoming tour dates, according to DarleneLoveWorld.com:

  • Jimmy Page Says His Next Musical Project Will Be "Sparkling" and "Stimulating" to the Senses

    Credit: Ross HalfinIn a new video interview with the U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine, Jimmy Page gives a little insight into his upcoming musical plans for next year.  The Led Zeppelin guitarist doesn't get too specific about his new project, but he promises that it will be something "sparkling…stimulating all the senses."

    He tells the magazine, "I'm playing guitar at the moment, because I'm getting ready.  I'm starting to get ready."

    Page explains that his game plan was that after he finished preparing the deluxe Led Zeppelin reissues, which he's done, "at the end of that was gonna be what would manifest as me playing live."

    Jimmy adds that whatever his next move is, he's planning to defy expectations.

    "Whatever I do, I don't want everyone to have made up their mind what I'm doing before I've done it," he insists.  "I mean, they already have.  On the Internet, people are telling me that, 'Oh, you're doing this, and you're doing that,' and I'm [saying,] 'Am I?  Just wait and see what I do.'"

    Page also reports that he's written some "new material," adding that "it will be surprising."

    As for the kind of live show he intends to play, he notes, "I'd like to obviously show what I've done along the way, but I'd definitely have musical surprises for people so they wouldn't sort of start yawning."

    Fans will have to stay tuned to find out exactly what Page has in store for them.

  • SONY WILL LOSE $90 MILLION ON 'THE INTERVIEW'

    Sony will reportedly be losing $90 million for scrapping the release of The Interview. According to The Wrap, the studio's decision to not even offer the film in streaming, video-on-demand, or DVD/Blu-ray format means they will eat the cost of the entire movie.

    The website estimates that the production cost about $45 million. Sony also spent $35 million on marketing in the U.S. and an additional $10 to $12 million on overseas marketing. Inside sources also revealed that before the cancellation the studio projected the movie would take in around $80 million in the U.S. and $130 in the rest of the world.

    • Sources also believe that the company can make up five or six million in marketing losses by trading out the ad space for other upcoming titles.
    • According to Huffington Post, movie posters for The Interview are selling on eBay for price tags around $550. However, a movie-poster expert who has appeared on Antique Roadshow explained, "A year from now, you wouldn't be able to get more than $15, maybe $20 for them. These things have no intrinsic value to begin with."

News, "She was on a tour, came in and she was just looking around the cafeteria. She was on a cart tour. She was dressed super casually, but she had her big sunglasses on. She was with just a tour guide and an assistant-type of person. I could tell she was really low key about it all. It was hard to tell if she was happy/excited to be there because of the sunglasses, she was covering the side of her face at a point but nothing too dramatic."

  • 'GOTHAM' STAR BEN MCKENZIE TALKS SEX AND RELATIONSHIP HURDLES

    Gotham star Ben McKenzie may have fame and success from his TV career but it hasn't necessarily helped his love life. The 36-year-old opens up about sex and dating in the new issue of Elle and even addresses the rumors from earlier this year that he hooked up with Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev.

    He tells the magazine, "I gave Nina Dobrev a hug! The one time I actually didn't hook up with someone...I'm really shy about that stuff. I really don't like relationships to be played out in public. It creates terrible strain. It creates bizarre dynamics. There's that saying, 'Less said about the bedroom, the better.'" Ben continues, "I like the idea of old-fashioned dating, which at this point is almost heretical. People are genuinely surprised when you ask them out. I've never had a problem being monogamous in a serious relationship. I've also never had a problem dating as I see fit when I'm not in a relationship. The guilt of not being monogamous would be massive. I don't think that I could deal with that. Maybe that's why I'm not in a relationship."
