NEW YORK (AP) -- A baseball pitcher will spend time in the bullpen warming up for a big game. Adele is loosening up her vocal cords for her upcoming concert tour by working out the kinks in a concert set for Friday. It will be at the Wiltern theater in Los Angeles. The show comes three days before the Grammys -- and a couple of weeks before she launches her tour of North America and Europe. And that concert swing includes six nights at the Staples Center -- where the Grammys will be held on Monday.
JACKSON BROWNE ADDED TO GLENN FREY TRIBUTE AT GRAMMYS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Since the start of this year, music has lost some key veteran artists -- like David Bowie and Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire. The Grammy people have firmed up plans to play tribute to one of who was lost recently: Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey. Among those signed on to help honor Frey is Jackson Browne -- who teamed up with Frey on "Take It Easy," the Eagles' first big hit and one of their signature tunes. Brown will join the Eagles' Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit and Bernie Leadon for a performance Monday during the Grammys ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
TARGET - GWEN STEFANI
NEW YORK (AP) -- Gwen Stefani will perform live at the Grammys. But in an ad, not on the show itself. Target says it will sponsor a four-minute live video by Stefani during the Grammy Awards on CBS. She will do the song "Make Me Like You," which drops tomorrow. The pairing is an attempt by the retailer to get attention and to capitalize on the trending topic of live performances on TV. But it's an expensive gamble. Four minutes of prime-time network advertising time runs into the millions of dollars.
