As you probably heard by now One Direction is coming to Northern California in June. They're doing two shows in the Bay area, 6/13 at San Jose State and 6/14 in Oakland. Tickets go on sale this Saturday morning through Ticketmaster and you can already text in to win a pair of tickets by texting 1D to 73389.
I forgot to mention this earlier in the week, but I heard the new Bieber song and it's VERY different than anything he's done before. Going big time after the Justin Timberlakesound I would say with an acoustic guitar riff over a heavy trancy dance beat. Not much there lyrically though, the beat is definitely the hook of the song. The End will debut it when we get it next Monday :)
American Idol is pulling out all the stops to try to stay ahead of The Voice in the ratings even going so far as adding an "Image Advisor" to the show this season. Tommy Hilfiger will take over the singers look starting next month and consumers will be able to purchase the "Authentic Icon" clothing line in stores starting in June. I always assumed the finalists had people dressing them already, but I guess attaching a big name to the job gives AI a new way to make even more money.
fun.'s "We Are Young" is the most downloaded song in Sacramento for the third week in a row. They'll be here Monday for a sold out show at Sac State but The End still has your tickets to win all this weekend.
Television has definitely been a factor in the recent resurregence of Maroon 5 thanks to Adam Levine's judging on The Voice. Soon we will get to see Adam on a totally different show. Levine will make his acting debut in season two of "American Horror Story". The producers are so set on having Adam on the show that they are willing to shoot around the singer's summer touring schedule. Along with his TV debut, Adam has also released his own fragrance and is back to recording a new song with Maroon 5.
