Every Friday, TicketForce brings you a wrap-up of an important event in one of four industries: music, theatre, sports and racing. This week’s #musicwrap features Eddie Vedder’s rescheduled tour.
For any Pearl Jam fan, the opportunity to see Eddie Vedder perform solo is a dream come true. In April, Vedder was forced to postpone his 15-city tour when he suffered nerve damage in his arm. Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis explained, “After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled.
Every week, TicketForce brings you news on one of four topics: music, theatre, sports and racing. This week’s #musicwrap features the unveiling of a new and improved iTunes. Although most of the talk surrounding Apple this week was about the new iPhone 5, Apple also introduced a new iPod Touch and iPod nano – but we think the new version of iTunes is even more exciting.
iTunes, the media management software for Apple products, has integrated its seamless iCloud into iTunes, making it easier than ever to share music among devices. All media, whether music or videos, purchased in iTunes will now be stored in iCloud, making it easily accessible from all devices.

It is time for the McDowell Mountain Music Festival again! The festival not only features great music, but also a silent auction, marketplace, drum circle, acoustic stage, Kid’s Zone, and more.

SXSW, the annual film, music and interactive conference held in Austin, wraps up this weekend with a pretty amazing line-up of live music performances.
One rather interesting performance by singer/songwriter, Fiona Apple, was a rare treat for fans on Wednesday night. The hour-long set started around 8 pm and included her Grammy-winning hit Criminal and other older tunes, On the Bound and Fast As You Can. The gig at SXSW is the opening date on her first tour in five year, as her first new album in seven years in due this summer – called “The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw.”
Critics and fans both noticed that Apple appeared extremely uncomfortable on-stage until her last song was finished.
Other major performers include Citizen Cope, Jay-Z, Kenny Rogers, Lionel Richie, Bruce Springsteen – and many, many others.
