Quick Hits: Coachella festival, Future, Guns N' Roses, Courtney Love & Hole, Jeff Beck & ZZ Top, The Cure
April 3, 2014

The first weekend of this year's Coachella festival (April 11-13) will again be streamed live by T-Mobile on YouTube. Programming will include live webcasts of select performances, artist interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other highlights. As for weekend two (April 18-20), AXS TV will broadcast 20 hours of live coverage including select performance footage and artist interviews. The artist lineup for the broadcasts will be announced shortly.

Future, whose sophomore album, Honest, will hit stores on April 22, has mapped out a 45-date headlining tour. The Rapper will kick things off on May 23 in Milwaukee, before wrapping on July 12 in Montreal.

Original Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan will reunite with the band for a run of South American shows this month while current bassist Tommy Stinson plays his own reunion concerts with The Replacements. McKagan will be playing shows in Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil. Stinson is due back in the GN'R lineup for their May 13 gig in Bethlehem, PA.

Courtney Love is apparently reuniting the Celebrity Skin lineup of Hole. In an interview with U.K. publication The Quietus, Love said that she, Melissa Auf der Maur, Eric Erlandson and Patty Schemel have put aside their differences and are currently working on new material. "I started playing with Patty and Melissa and Eric, just to see how that was," Love told The Quietus. "We already played like three or four times in the last week." Meanwhile, she is planning to release a new single called "Wedding Day" in support of her May tour of the U.K.

Jeff Beck and ZZ Top will team up for a five-week tour starting on August 8 in Missoula, Montana and running through September 12 in Woodlands, Texas, with more dates to be announced. The shows will offer full sets from both artists before they end each concert with a collaborative performance.

It looks like The Cure album 4:14 Scream, which was recorded at the same time as 2008's 4:13 Dream, will see the light of day after all. Frontman Robert Smith had expressed reservations about releasing the old material, but now it seems he has had a change of heart. In a blog post on The Cure's official site, Smith wrote that the album will be released as a single CD of 14 previously unreleased songs, as well as a deluxe edition called 4:26 Dream, which will be a double album of 26 songs.
