Ever since Jake Miller began posting his original songs on YouTube a few years ago, the Miami-born pop artist has been building a virtual army of fans. His millions of followers on social media call themselves the Millertary and come to his concerts wearing camouflage and greasepaint under their eyes. They are devoted to Miller’s irresistible musical blend of pop and hip-hop, combined with the positive messages in his songs. Miller began rapping when he was 17, but began to take it more seriously a year later when his YouTube videos caught the attention of local news and radio stations. This led to his first-ever live performance — a plum slot opening for Snoop Dogg. One of MTV’s 2014 “Ones to Watch” artists, Miller has shared stages with Mac Miller, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston, Asher Roth, Jason Derulo, Cody Simpson and Austin Mahone, at various radio festivals, including Y-100’s Jingle Ball and the Calle Ocho Festival in Miami, where he performed for a crowd of more than 200,000 screaming fans.
Cradle Of Filth have assumed the role of dark metal diarists, exploring the amorphous horrors that lurk in humanity’s shadows and reveling in the opulence of mortal sin across centuries powered by bleak romance and a lust for the sensually grotesque. Currently enjoying a collective creative renaissance that is driving them to new heights of elegant fury, the band are more potent and devastating than ever before as they approach the release of their latest and perhaps greatest studio effort, Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay. “This album represents an onwards and upwards drive for the band, building on the success of Hammer Of The Witches and pushing further with the venomous musicology to create something that is both unique and loyal to our previous incarnations,” lead vocalist Dani Filth states. A monstrous tour-de-force of utterly distinctive but reassuringly destructive heavy metal, laced with spectral disquiet but delivered with muscular aplomb, Cryptoriana hits hard from the exhilarating melodrama of opening two-fisted salvo “Exquisite Torments Await” and “Heartbreak And Séance” onwards, the twelfth Cradle album manifestly represents yet another wild expansion of the band’s sonic manifesto across nine epic and elaborate new anti-hymns. As they prepare to introduce these stunning new songs to their dedicated global fan base, Cradle Of Filth have never been more powerful or their excellence so undeniable

Singer-guitarist Daniel Ash and drummer Kevin Haskins — who spent large swaths of the ’80s and ’90s performing together in the seminal acts Bauhaus, Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets — have reunited to form a new band called Poptone, with Haskins’ daughter Diva, that will perform the music of those three classic acts on tour in the U.S. Diva Dompe is a musician in her own right who previously played in BlackBlack. Haskins and Ash, who have been DJing together of late, last played together, with Haskins’ brother David J and frontman Peter Murphy, during a Bauhaus reunion and in Love and Rockets, again with David J, in a later reunion.
The Revolution formed in 1979 when Prince joined drummer, Bobby Z and keyboardist Matt Fink. Over the next four years, several formations would emerge until finally Prince found the band he felt could master the challenging musicality of his vision. The legendary final line-up included Lisa Coleman on keyboards/piano, Wendy Melvoin on guitar and Brown Mark on bass. The Revolution was credited on three Prince studio-albums, Purple Rain, Around the World In a Day and Parade while some members also played on 1999, Controversy, Dirty Mind, Around The World in A Day and Sign O The Times. Together, they earned multiple #1 hits, as well as two Grammy® Awards and an Oscar, with the song “Purple Rain,” for Best Original Song Score in 1985.
Rumours has meticulously put together a show that spares no detail. Rumours recreates Fleetwood Mac’s legendary persona, in all its youthful glory from 1975-1987.

Relive the rock and roll magic with Rumours.
Dvsn is an alternative R&B act that consists of producer Paul Jefferies (aka Nineteen85) and vocalist Daniel Daley. Similar in approach to early Weeknd, PartyNextDoor, and Majid Jordan, they specialize in narcotic slow jams featuring sexually frank lyrics, often in falsetto. Like some of the other Toronto-based artists in Drake’s orbit, dvsn weren’t all that forthcoming about their identities, but the names of Jefferies and Daley were the common factors in the songwriting credits of each dvsn song throughout the debut album. Released by Drake’s Warner-supported OVO Sound as a digital download in April 2016, it peaked at number 17 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. A handful of singles beginning with the May 2017 release of “Think About Me” led to second album Morning After.
The Petty Hearts are America’s definitive Tom Petty Tribute Show. Just like the original Tom and the Heartbreakers themselves, this band is also based out of Florida and is comprised of seasoned musicians who perfectly capture the rich guitar sounds and lush harmonies that have made Tom Petty a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Songwriter Hall of Famer, and top of the charts music maker for more than forty years. Their upbeat stage show has crowds energized from the first number, dancing and singing along to hit after timeless hit.
A left-field act whose material ranges from ominous posse cuts to light R&B ballads, BROCKHAMPTON prefer “all-American boy band” to “rap group” as a designation. The lineup took shape on New Year’s Day 2015 in San Marcos, Texas, and by the end of the year the band prevailed as winners of the VFILES Loud! talent search. This enabled them to issue the single “Dirt” via Fool’s Gold, after which they self-released the mixtape All American Trash in March of 2016. Their widely distributed full-length effort, Saturation, arrived in March 2017 and featured the input of members Kevin Abstract, Matt Champion, Romil Hemnani, JOBA, Dom McLennon, Ameer Vann, and Merlyn Wood. BROCKHAMPTON swiftly followed up with Saturation’s sequel — Saturation II — later that summer.
