Belle and Sebastian Reveals Tour Dates for North American Leg in 2023

Belle and Sebastian released tour dates of its 2023 North American leg.

After completing several dates in Europe this winter, the indie group will kick off a new date in Mexico on April 24th.

The tour takes the band on the road through May 19 in Missouri. Check out the full list of Belle and Sebastian tour dates below.

Belle and Sebastian’s first studio album in seven years, A Bit of Previous, was delivered in May.

The band then eventually released the non-album single “A Bit of Previous”. Additionally, they came to NPR’s Tiny Desk to play “Unnecessary Drama,” “Working Boy in New York City,” “Reclaim the Night,” and “Judy and the Dream of Horses.” 

Formation in Glasgow

Belle and Sebastian, an indie pop group, was formed in Scotland, more precisely in Glasgow, in 1996. The group is made up of seven members: Stuart Murdoch, Stevie Jackson, Sarah Martin, Chris Geddes, Richard Colburn, Bobby Kildea and Dave McGowan.

They are frequently set side by side to acts like The Smiths and Nick Drake.

The band takes its name from a 1965 children’s book written by French author Cécile Aubrey. The book was later adapted for television.

Belle and Sebastian achieved limited commercial success.

In 1998, the group dropped their third LP, The Boy with the Arab Strap. It secured the top 12 spot in the UK charts. The LP earned them an NPR interview and good reviews from Rolling Stone and the Village Voice.

Blink-182 Reveals a 2023 Tour

Blink-182 reunited with co-founder Tom DeLonge. In addition, they announced a tour in 2023.

The line-up of DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker will also release a comeback single called “Edging” on Friday (October 14th). A press release also says the band plans to release a new album next year.

DeLonge formed Blink-182 with Mark Hoppus in 1992. The band’s debut album, Cheshire Cat, was released in 1995, followed by “Dammit”-featuring Dude Ranch in 1997.

After former drummer Scott Raynor was laid off from the band in 1998, Travis Barker joined the band in time to record the 1999 multi-platinum album Enema of the State, which contains the hit single “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things.”

In 2001, they released their first number one album in the US, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. DeLonge and Barker released a side project in 2002 as a duo. This is his self-titled Box Car Racer album. A year after, Blink-182 dropped a self-titled album ahead of revealing an indefinite break in 2005. 

DeLonge put his efforts into his band Angels & Airwaves, who released their debut album in 2006, while Barker embarked on a career as a prolific drummer, particularly in pop punk and hip hop.

Barker was involved in a plane crash in 2008 that resulted in the three returning for a reunion in 2009. Blink-182 dropped Neighborhoods in 2011 and stayed on tour in the early 2010s. Then, DeLonge left the band in 2015. 

After DeLonge left the band, Blink-182 recruited Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. During this time they released his next two albums: California in 2016 and Nine in 2019.

In 2021, Hoppus learned he had been diagnosed with cancer. However, he later confirmed that he was free from cancer.

In an August 2022 interview with People, Hoppus said DeLonge and Barker visited him before starting chemotherapy.

“It was the first time that all three of us were in the same room in, like, five years,” Hoppus stated. 

“It’s actually better than it used to be. There was no agenda. There were no lingering grudges. It felt very back to what it should be: three friends sitting in a room… Everybody’s in a really great place right now.”

HabibiCheeks Opens the Doors to the Best of LA’s Glittering Nightlife and Party Scene

HabibiCheeks at the Swae Lee x boohooMAN event with online personalities such as @ddg, @madimonroe, @kingcarlx, @itsluxcity, @chasedemoor, @tg4hunnid, @mostlyluca in attendance.

Los Angeles is the city where big dreamers go to live their best lives, a place where fun times are always around the corner, and there is no better way to experience LA nightlife than with HabibiCheeks, one of the top private party hosts and club promoters in Los Angeles.

Nightlife in Los Angeles is unlike any other. In fact, bumping into celebrities at clubs or private parties is always possible, especially in top locations and venues unique to the LA party scene that everyone’s been raving about. HabibiCheeks has meticulously developed his relationships in this industry, which is why he is the go-to party guru and club promoter for people who want to have a memorable experience in Los Angeles.

With his vast connections, HabibiCheeks has had the chance to attend some of the hottest events in town. Promoting at clubs such as Poppy & Bootsy Bellows, he developed a strong relationship with H.Wood group which gave him access to events where Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Hart, Michael B Jordan, & a vast majority of other A-list celebrities are in attendance.

HabibiCheeks also hosts events and parties in which tons of artists and big online personalities have participated. He always knows how to ramp up the party scene, making his events the number one place for the best nightlife experience in Los Angeles. As an example, Larri Merritt , Tana Mongeau, Bryce Hall, Bryant Eslava, Bankroll Hayden, and musical artist Sueco the Child have all been familiar faces at HabibiCheeks five-star gatherings at Poppy nightclub. He calls this night “Poppy Wednesdays,” and always wears a red cowboy hat with a flower crown on it. In addition, HabibiCheeks has also collaborated with several university sororities at the nightclub to “make sure the ratio is right,” he joked in an interview.

HabibiCheeks at Sommer Ray’s “Imaraïs Beauty” launch event, online personalities such as @ira_blanc & @giannicures were in attendance.

As a club promoter, HabibiCheeks has exclusive access to some of Los Angeles’ hottest clubs, bars, and parties through extensive contacts in the H.Wood group’s nightlife and hospitality department. He is often spotted wearing his signature red cowboy hat with a flower crown at celebrity events and parties. “It’s become part of my look and my identity as a host and club promoter,” he shared. “My distinct red hat helped me stand out; it lets people know who I am. When you spot that red hat with the red & white flower crown at any event, you know I’m there so come say hi!” he continued.

Rising as one of the top party and club promoters in Los Angeles has opened up a lot of opportunities for HabibiCheeks. He claims he got his start in this industry because someone took a chance on him and his skills. However, that would not have been possible whatsoever purely out of luck, but rather “the hard work of networking & putting yourself out there each & every day without taking rejection into account” he stated. “They didn’t treat me well when I was starting out, it was all because one person told them to give me the chance to prove myself, next thing you know I have hundreds of people coming & my own night at Poppy” he continued. HabibiCheeks says “I only met that guy & found an opportunity because I was going out every night, whether I wanted to or not, I treated it like a full time job.”

There is something magical about the Los Angeles party scene, and HabibiCheeks knows how this can bring endless opportunities for his career as well as for various celebrities and influencers he works with. So, he said, “if you want to have a good time in Los Angeles, get in touch with me on Instagram, and I’ll give you an experience that only LA nightlife can give.”

Milan Fashion Week Sees Rebellion Themes from Designer Brands

Among the “Big Four” fashion weeks, Milan has staged a legacy but still pales in comparison to young London, energetic New York and glamorous Paris. This season, however, Milan strike differently with an air of rebellion.

While no political statements were seen on the catwalks, the country’s creative team may have been pushed to the brink of victory by the reality of a far-right party.

Gaetano Pesce, the beloved Italian architect and furniture designer who designed Bottega Veneta’s decor on Saturday night, made a candid comment ahead of the brand’s runway show.

“This space is a tribute to diversity,” he stated of his resin runway full of a bespoke, multi-hued chair. 

“It is about the human being; we are all different. People who say we’re all the same – f— them! We are all different, and this is our defining quality – otherwise, we are just a copy.” 

A few days before the Bottega Veneta fashion show, Diesel tried to democratize his usually exclusive show by breaking tradition and inviting the public to attend the event, and received a huge crowd of 5,000 people, including 3,000 guests not belonging to the industry.

And, in a similar move breaking tradition, the Dolce & Gabbana clip of Kim Kardashian eating a plate of spaghetti was provocative.

The last time Dolce & Gabbana made a video with spaghetti as an accessory, in November 2018, the brand sent shockwaves, drawing accusations of racism. The particular promotional clip, which had an Asian model struggling to eat the pasta with chopsticks, was so controversial that the label was forced to cancel its show in China. 

Meanwhile, the designer’s debuts at Etro, Missoni, Ferragamo and Bally injected vibrant new energy into the week, even to mixed reviews from critics.

Rebellion is almost another word for risk, and not all risks have a good outcome. The week was not without epic failures, including the Robert Cavali show where several models slipped and slid, and shows were delayed. But despite the setbacks, there is much to celebrate.

Designer Rebellion in Milan

Botegga Veneta

Matthieu Blazy’s second collection for Bottega Veneta is a sure win of the week. Mixing womenswear and menswear, the classy collection presented nearly every piece you need in your wardrobe – from jeans and tanks to suits and cocktail dresses. 


Donatella Versace hosted another highlight of the week. 

“I have always loved a rebel,” she said. “A woman who is confident, smart, and a little bit of a diva.” 

The collection featured a goth girl’s dream in colors of purple and black, presenting mini dresses that are lingerie-inspired, leather, and veils. 


Y2K has thrived in the fashion industry. Kim Jones’ newest collection – starring cargo trousers in leather and silk (which Gen Zs love), highlighter green platform heels, and leather mesh dresses – proved this notion more. 


Jeremy Scott’s Moschino delivered a glam moment of levity from season to season. 

In a backstage interview with CNN Style, Scott stated that he contemplated global problems, like the Ukraine-Russia war, economic inflation, and assault on women’s rights, when making the fits. 

“There’s so much negativity that we have to process,” he stated, “but we must hold space for joy.” 


A collaboration between Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons showed its first sashay this season. The pair’s newest collection showed a new alignment between the two highly esteemed designers, who have collaborated since Simons became Prada’s co-creative director two years ago.

The Weeknd Announces Cancellation During SoFi Show: ‘I’m devastated’

Photo: Planet Fashion

The Weeknd abruptly ended his second show in Los Angeles on Saturday – it was a sold-out show – after losing his voice.

The Grammy winner, originally known as Abel Tesfaye, interrupted the show at SoFi Stadium about four tracks into his set and apologized to attendees for the abrupt turn of events.

“This is killing me,” he said. “I don’t want to stop the show, but I can’t give you the concert that I want to give you right now.” 

He added, “I’m going to make sure everybody’s good, get your money back, and I’ll do a show real soon for you guys, but I wanted to come out and personally apologize and not tweet it or Instagram it.

“I wanted you guys to know that I can’t give you what I want to give you. I apologize. I’m so sorry. I love you guys so much.” 

In a statement posted to Twitter later that night, the musician said he was “devastated.”

“My voice went out during the first song, and I’m devastated,” the apologetic artist said, “Felt it go, and my heart stopped. My deepest apologies to my fans here.” 

The Weeknd has promised to catch up with his fans soon with a new date.

SoFi Staff in Shambles

A viewer said there was chaos following the cancellation, pointing out that SoFi staff rushed for a massive crowd release that happened earlier than expected.

The Weeknd started the first concert at the SoFi Stadium on Friday, the newest leg of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour. The first night in Los Angeles gave an appearance from his Idol co-actor Lili-Rose Depp, who presented the singer while in character, referring to the weekend as his character’s name, Tedros. 

“I’ve had a tough year, and there were moments where I didn’t know I was going to make it,” Depp stated, per Billboard reports. 

“But then I thought of you and your grace. Tonight is incredibly special, because I have the opportunity to introduce you to the love of my life – the man who pulled me through the darkest hours and into the light. Tedros, will you please join us?” 

The following dates for the tour will be at Toronto’s Rogers Centre on September 22 and 23.

Artists and Bands on Tour 2022

2022 seems to be beckoning for live music – huge gatherings postponed due to the first pandemic lockdowns, the biggest superstars touring for their 2021 albums, and indie rockers playing gigs releasing new music.

Of course, it remains to be seen how the new variants and ongoing pandemic will affect these touring schedules, but here are some of the artists heading to venues around the world this year.


The 1975

Three years after their last tour, 1975 will embark on a highly anticipated journey across North America in support of their album Being Funny in a Foreign Language, which will be released on October 14th.

Monday night was another award-winning speech. The Succession certainly succeeded when the White Lotus was in full bloom.

Apple TV + comedy Ted Lasso took home several major Emmy Awards on Monday night, taking home four trophies: the second consecutive award for Outstanding Comedy Series and acting honors for Brett Goldstein and Jason Sudeikis.

HBO’s Succession could have been gearing up for a top Emmy pick. The show won Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor for Matthew McFadden’s performance, and a writing award for creator Jesse Armstrong’s screenplay.

Perhaps HBO was the real winner this year, as The White Lotus Show had a five-star night and took home the biggest awards: Jennifer Coolidge and Murray Bartlett snagged acting awards, and creator Mike White netted writing and directing prizes. 

The ceremony, held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, was hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Kenan Thompson. The awards ceremony also honored Gina Davis with the Governor’s Award.

Other celebrities who enjoyed the night included Michael Keaton, Lizzo, Amanda Seyfried, and Jerrod Carmichael.
