John Mayer
John Mayer has added a leg of summer tour dates to his 2017 The Search for Everything world tour. The new dates start July 18 in Albuquerque and end in Noblesville, IN on September 3. Each show will feature full band and solo acoustic sets, as well as a set from his John Mayer Trio.

With a new single expected out in the coming weeks, Lorde has been announced as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live in March. The singer will perform on March 11 with Scarlett Johansson hosting. Additionally, Father John Misty will appear as musical guest on March 4, with previously announced host Octavia Spencer.

Eminem will return to the stage as part of the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK, headlining Reading on Saturday, August 26 and Leeds on Sunday, August 27. It is Slim Shady's third time headlining the long-running UK festivals, having performed in 2013 and 2001.

Gucci Mane has announced his first-ever U.S. headline tour. The trek begins in Boston on April 5 with dates announced up to May 6 in Austin, though additional dates will be announced soon. The tour includes the rapper's appearances at Coachella on April 15 and 22.

Lionel Richie & Mariah Carey's "All the Hits Tour" has been postponed, as Richie is currently recovering from a knee procedure and will be unable to hit the road. The tour had been slated to start on March 15 but will now take place this summer.
