Roger Waters is, for a change, happy to be on tour

Roger Waters is a sometimes reluctant road warrior. He expressed his disconnect from touring (among many other issues) in the '70s and famously wrote much of Pink Floyd's 1979 album "The Wall" in response. When he got around to touring "The Wall" as a solo artist in 2010, he suggested it might be the last time he hits the road on such a massive scale. Yet here he is again, presiding over a similarly gargantuan worldwide excursion for his latest solo album, "Is This the Life We Really Want?" It brims with Floydian sonic signifiers and functions as both a humanistic plea and decidedly unsubtle political commentary.

Ice-T corrals hip-hop legends on the Art of Rap tour

It wasn't Ice-T's intention, when he produced the 2012 documentary "Something for Nothing: The Art of Rap," to return hip-hop's most important old-school acts to the stage. But he couldn't help noticing today's biggest stars aren't inviting Eric B and Rakim, EPMD and KRS-ONE to open for them at stadiums. So he put them together on the road.
