Top Live Acts of 2010
The Florida rockers performed their farewell tour this Spring, disbanding after eight years and five studio albums, bringing other great bands Deas Vail and Person L along with them for the bittersweet ride.
With a jaw-dropping “Glitter in the Air” performance at the Grammys early in the year, Pink kept up her high-flying stunts during her overseas Funhouse Summer Carnival tour which made her the only female artist selling out stadiums this year.
8. Pretty Reckless
However you see her, foul-mouthed brat or teenage provocateur Taylor Momsen, who flashed her 17-year-old breasts to the audience during a Pretty Reckless show earlier this year, has made her and her band seem like Courtney Love Jr. and Hole-lite.
7. Adam Lambert
The “American Idol” almost-winner set out on his first headlining tour this year, giving fans all the glitter, glam, and throaty wailing they could hope for.
The Hayley Williams-fronted rockers set out on a headlining tour in support of last year’s “Brand New Eyes,” which included plenty of cell phone-lit renditions of their hit “The Only Exception.”
Before she was the “Only Girl (In the World),” Rihanna was on her “Last Girl on Earth” tour, performing hits off last year’s “Rated R” and her mega-hit “Umbrella.”
4. The Black Eyed Peas
Though it was their “E.N.D.” tour, the Black Eyed Peas showed absolutely no signs of slowing down this year. They spent nearly the entire year selling out arenas worldwide while performing their latest #1 hits, including “Imma Be” and “I Gotta Feeling.”
The Colombian pop princess earned one of the biggest international hits this year with the World Cup anthem “Waka Waka (Time For Africa)” and one of its biggest tours, in support of her latest album “Sale El Sol.”
Robyn released one of the most acclaimed albums of the year with “Body Talk” and her North American outings this year, where she performed singles like “Dancing On My Own” and “Hang With Me” to a throng of sing-along crowds, had Billboard calling her “one of the greatest pop performers of this decade.”
1. Lady Gaga
The “Bad Romance” singer kicked off the year with one leg of her “Monster Ball Tour” and is closing out 2010 with yet another. Continuing on through 2011, the tour will finally wrap in May after 200 performances. Performing hits off “The Fame,” “The Fame Monster,” and soon to be amended with material off her upcoming “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga continues to mesmerize her little monsters with one of the biggest tours of the year, enough to be voted as the #1 Live Act of 2010.
Newsweek Sold To Harman International. Newsweek gets you smarter, faster about what matters most now in politics, business, environment, tech, culture, world, and health ideas, news, and trends. Newsweek, the 77-year-old news magazine venerated the world over, has been sold by owner The Washington Post Co. to stereo magnate Sidney Harman, founder of Harman International Industries Inc. Harman has assured that most of the 350 Newsweek employees will be retained, while the weekly would be given enough time to recover from its losses. The Washington Post Co., announcing Monday that it had signed a contract with the audio tycoon, brought to an end the Post’s half-century-old ownership of Newsweek. Editor Jon Meacham has decided to leave the company and there is yet no decision as to who will succeed him. Until someone is hired, Tom Ascheim, Newsweek’s chief executive officer, will look after editorial responsibilities. In a statement, Harman called Newsweek “a national treasure,” while expressing his “enormous pleasure” at “succeeding The Washington Post Co. and the Graham family and looking forward to this great journalistic, business, and technological challenge.” Harman won the bid for Newsweek from among bidders such as Fred Drasner, ex-publisher of the New York Daily News; hedge fund Avenue Capital Group and OpenGate Capital, owners of TV Guide. Although terms of the deal were not disclosed immediately, it was reported that the Washington Post Co. was going to keep Newsweek’s pension assets, liabilities and some of the employee obligations. It was about 50 years ago that the Post bought the magazine, however dropping circulation figures forced the newspaper publisher to shed the magazine from its various publications. Circulation figures of Newsweek have declined from 3 million to 1.9 million in the past two decades. Moreover, the magazine could clearly be seen struggling against the onslaught of electronic and social media. Newsweek was founded in 1933 and has been suffering regular losses over the past few years. The magazine lost about $11 million during the first quarter of this year. According to newspaper reports, Harman is considering revamping the newsweekly and is expected to look at ideas such as including investigative as well as entrepreneurial journalism into the coverage areas of the magazine.
