It’s a big day for Kaskade. The DJ released his new track “Kaskade vs. Quilnez — Stars Troll” on iTunes and he’s performing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles tonight for his Freaks of Nature Tour.
For all his fans who plan to mope at home because they can’t make it to his sold-out show, fear not, you can basically be there. His landmark performance will be streamed live at 12:15 am EST (9:15 pm PST). Kaskade earned the distinction of being the first electronic dance artist to EVER solo-headline the venue and he also marked an industry milestone by selling it out (SAY WHAT?).
“It only seems natural to allow fans to experience it across the world through a live stream,” Kaskade said in a press release. “It’s the beauty of technology — I can bring this to so many more fans than just those in the arena!”
Don’t forget to check out the 90-minute concert tonight (below) and see his new music video next week, which will take footage from the show. Catch the teaser video for the performance here.
Adam Sandler’s Mr. Deeds inspired Justin Bieber. Remember the scene where Adam Sandler surprises Winona Ryder with a date at Madison Square Garden? Well Justin saw the movie recently and it got him thinking.
Last night, Justin was able to secure the entire Staples Center just for him and Selena to watch Titanic. Justin took Selena to the Demi Lovato concert at the Nokia Theater. He said, “Come with me” and took her underground to Staples Center. Justin didn’t have to pay for it because since he sold out the venue three times and it was empty they gave him the entire arena for free.
Huge boyfriend points.
The Michael Jackson casket myth has finally been solved. On July 7, 2009, you may recall a memorial for Michael Jackson at the Staples Center that was in front of thousands of people in downtown Los Angeles.
Jackson’s body was held in a $25,000 red casket throughout the service. However nobody actually saw the casket leave the memorial. This fueled speculation that Jackson was not really dead.
However TMZ has solved the mystery. Although the casket arrived in a hearse, the body left in a LAPD SWAT van. The van was then driven to a secret location where the casket was moved into a Forest Lawn Memorial van, which then drove the casket to the cemetery.
