Thursday Express-Blur Sell Out; Kelly O. Pitches Doritos; New Stereophonics





Just a day after their upcoming album, Think Tank was leaked to the world via the Interweb, London Britpop stars Blur announced a low-key show at New York City's Bowery Ballroom. It took all of about four hours to sell out. Nice work, boys. Could there be other shows in the works? Stay tuned.


Fresh off her Super Bowl-debuted advertisement for Pepsi, Kelly Osbourne is immersing herself further into the snack market. The multi-hued hairdo queen has signed on to be a spokesperson for Doritos. Evidently the theme song will be a live version of her song "Come Dig Me Out." Watch for Ms. Osbourne on tour this summer with UK heartthrob Robbie Williams.

Welsh rockers Stereophonics will return to the fray with a May 19 UK release of their fourth studio album, You Gotta Go There To Come Back, with first single "Madame Helga" hitting shelves two weeks earlier. Discussing his band's first album since 2001's Just Enough Education To Perform, frontmidget Kelly Jones stated to Kerrang! magazine, "There's probably about three songs on there which are similar to the single like a Sly And The Family Stone glam rock kind of thing. A couple are a bit like Massive Attack, with more electronic sounds. So it's really all over the fucking place." Sounds like it...
