Billy Joel can’t be stopped. After selling out New York City’s Madison Square Garden 35 times, he’s added another show. According to Billboard, by the end of this year, Joel’s open ended residency at the famed venue will have sold 700,000 tickets. On top of that, he’s already grossed over $54-million from the run of shows. Tickets for the Piano Man’s 36th MSG show on December 17th will go on sale March 25th.
Police in Seattle are releasing photos of the shotgun Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain used to kill himself decades ago. A Seattle police cold case detective is shown holding Cobain’s gun at different angles in five photos posted to the department’s website. The photos were taken in June 2015 and added to the city of Seattle’s computer system earlier this month. It’s not clear why they took the photos last year or why they’re releasing them to the public. Cobain was 27th when he died in 1994.
Madonna fans in Brisbane, Australia, were angry they had to decide whether to stay for the end of her show or take the last train home. Madonna was supposed to go on stage at 9 p-m Wednesday but did not show up until 11:22 p-m. Hundreds of fans had left by then and demanded refunds at the ticket office. When Madonna finally did make it to the stage, she joked, “You were here too early. You should have taken your time doing your hair and makeup. Then I wouldn’t have been late.” The last train left at 12:15 a-m, but Madonna did not wrap up the show until about an hour later.
