Sims 3 is out this Tuesday!



I'm really looking forward to the release of this. I was hugely into the original Sims. I didn't much care for Sims 2 though. I guess I just preferred the original, even though the graphics in Sims 2 were vastly improved. Sims 3, however, looks even better than Sims 2, if that's possible, and from all the preview videos & pictures I've seen on the official website, gameplay looks way better too! I will soo be buying this come Tuesday!

Kylie & Jason PWL era music now on iTunes!



from Chartrigger.com

As if the Pete Hammond mixes of Wynonna Judd's "Sing" weren't enough of a treat last week, today onetime '80s Neighbours stars and Stock Aitken Waterman stablemates Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan see their entire PWL back catalogs added to iTunes (including U.S.).

In the case of Kylie, this includes her four SAW albums, her original 1992 Greatest Hits and even her DeConstruction albums (1994's self-titled one and 1997's Impossible Princess) made after she left the PWL label.

But with Jason, we get his two PWL albums and his Greatest Hits, plus his original singles with every remix you can imagine...and the B-sides (including the extended mix of "She's In Love With You")!

Ian Usher of PWL tells Chart Rigger, "[These are] available in the U.S. as well to coincide with the news of Kylie's tour and the usage of 'Celebration' on the Macy's ad."

We should be so lucky. And it looks like we are!

I never thought this day would come...



I've waited 20 years for this news!!!!!!!!

From: Kylie.com

Kylie's North American fans will finally get a chance to experience the pop superstar live in concert when her 6-city tour kicks off in Oakland (San Francisco Bay Area) on September 30th!

Over the course of her extraordinary 20-year-career, Kylie has undertaken 8 sold-out world tours including last year's KylieX2008 tour which traveled to 21 countries throughout Europe, South America, Dubai, Asia, New Zealand and Australia, generating an estimated $70,000,000 in ticket sales. Kylie couldn't be more excited about her first ever tour through North America.

"I've wanted to tour in America and Canada for years," admits Kylie, "I know that fans have been waiting a long time for this and I'm thrilled that the opportunity has finally arrived."

Kylie's eagerly-awaited North American concert debut is being produced by Los Angeles-based concert promotion firm Bill Silva Presents (BSP).

"Kylie has such a successful career outside of North America that it has taken quite a while to find a window in her schedule for the U.S. and Canada," said Silva. "Her amazing fans in North America will be well rewarded for their patience when they experience her show and its entire spectacle. We are confident in the tour's success, and hope that Kylie will make this the first of many tours to our shores."

Tickets will go on sale in each market on the weekend of May 15, however early access to tickets in the U.S. will be available to American Express Cardmembers beginning this Thursday, May 7, through Ticketmaster. Members of Kylie's mailing list via her official website www.Kylie.com will receive an exclusive email that contains information of special ticket pre-sale offers.
