Fun tour dates; Rise Records tour to Edinboro; Clarks return

Fun. and Beyonce both announced summer tours today, but only one of the preceding is headed to the tri-state area.
Beyonce’s tour includes no area dates, so you’re out of luck. She’ll come no closer than Detroit (July 20) and Toronto (July 21).
Fun., however, will play Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica on July 9 and at Pittsburgh’s Stage AE on July 18. Tegan and Sara will open both shows.
Tickets for both will go on sale Feb. 16 at noon at Ticketmaster.

What did you think of Beyonce’s halftime show? Didn’t do much for me. It’s more proof that aging rock stars are allowed to rock out, but if a woman is booked, she must parade around and flash as much skin as possible. She hardly sang, and when she did, she performed about 30 to 45 seconds of a song, tops, before moving on to the next pose.

The Grammy Awards have added Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Sting — and, the weird thing is, they’ll perform together.
Kelly Clarkson will also perform.
Presenters include Prince, Beyonce, Hunter Hayes, Jennifer Lopez, Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Keith Urban.
The Grammy Awards will air on Sunday at 8 p.m. on WSEE-TV.

Erie Entertainment brings the Rise Records 2013 tour to Edinboro Campus Events Center in Edinboro on April 26. Performers include Like Moths to Flames, Crown the Empire, the Color Morale, Palisades, My Ticket Home and Bail Easy. Tickets are $15.
