Concerts were everywhere this weekend from New York to Atlanta.   Check out Solange Knowles dropping it like it’s hot on stage at Brooklyn’s 2013 Northside Festival at McCarren Park and pics from day 3 of Bonnaroo in case you missed ‘em.  Plus, the celebs who turned out to hit the stage at Atlanta’s Birthday Bash 18…

After a whirlwind of performing in umpteen cities and countries this last week, Solange was back home in BK on Sunday performing at the Northside Festival.

 

Rocking a printed hat and a striped shirt and cutoffs with cut-out bandage style boots, Solo let loose with the mic during her performance:

After gettin’ low for the fans, she tweeted, "Northside! Brooklyn! New York! U beautiful people made me feel really good in side. I hope you enjoyed:( I’m happy I took those heels off."

Ha!  Peep video below:

 

By the way, also over the weekend Solo headed to Tennessee for Bonnaroo.  And rocking the cutest summer look and twists, she took over that stage too

And down in Atlanta, every rapper that usually jumps at the chance to perform on stage….did just that.  At 107.9′s Birthday Bash 18, your typical faves plus a few others came out to celebrate at Atlanta Philips Arena in front of a sold out crowd:

Since T.I. was on hand to take the stage with B.o.B., his fam–Zonnique and an OMG girl, Messiah and others were right backstage ready to support pops during Father’s Day weekend.

The "We Gettin’ It" collabo partners rocked out with some hits:

The "Love & Hip Hop ATL cast was there–at least in part.  Traci Steele, DJ Baby Drew (wonder if he ever found his $ 50K), Erica Dixon and her daughter (that she has with Scrappy) hit the stage looking cute.

And Trinidad James…it wouldn’t be an Atlanta show without him or his cane.  He hit the stage with Young Dro…this guy’s shenanigans….

Beyonce RELEASING New Music BEFORE The Super Bowl + Jay-Z DEBUTS Documentary On Barclays Center’s CONCERTS

Photobucket 

The Dream has revealed that Beyonce will release new music before her Super Bowl performance in Feburary.  Meanwhile, her husband Jay-Z has released a short documentary about the concerts he performed to open the Barclays Center.  Get more infomation inside….

 

When Beyonce (shown above in a new Tumblr photo) posted a few photo on her website referring to "Febuary 2013", fans couldn’t decide if her "Countdown To Touchdown" referred to new music or her Super Bowl performance.  And now…we know it’s a little bit of both.  

Famed producer The Dream recently confirmed to Billboard that Beyonce started recording new music over the summer of 2012 and is gearing up to releasing some new music before her performance at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3, 2012.  

The Dream said he’s been involved in every aspect of Bey’s fifth studio album and, "She’s already gearing up to get ready to put stuff out. I’m sure there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here."

And with new music, a Super Bowl performance and an HBO documentary coming out, 2013 already the year of Beyonce! We’re sure her fans can’t wait.

And in Jay-Z news…..

Earlier today, JAY Z’s Life+Times posted an unprecedented behind the scenes look at the creation of his Barclays Center opening concerts.  Watch the film above.

Pop siren Janet Jackson has postponed part of her Australian tour so she can join her family’s side during the trial of the doctor who is accused of involuntary manslaughter in the death of her late brother, Michael Jackson.

The trial of Dr. Conrad Murray is currently taking place in Los Angeles — prosecutors are expected to finish with their case this week. Then, the defense will present their arguments in the trial.

“When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different,” Janet said in a Sunday statement to The Associated Press. “After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now… This saddens me in so many ways.”

Promoters for Janet’s ‘Number Ones: Up Close and Personal’ tour fully back the singer’s decision to support her family at this crucial time. “It is important that Janet is with her family at this critical point in the hearing,” said promoter Paul Dainty. While Janet and our company apologize for any inconvenience for the reschedule of the Melbourne shows, we thank Janet for the great and successful concerts in Perth and Adelaide and eagerly await her return. Our thoughts and prayers are with Janet and the entire Jackson family.”

Janet’s canceled shows in Melbourne this week have been rescheduled for Nov. 3 at Rod Laver Arena.
