Quick Music Hits

- We previously reported here about Fleetwood Mac's current tour, which is coming to the Sprint Center on May 8. The group, famous for the infighting and interchangeable love relationships which occurred during the 1970's, apparently is keeping their distance between shows and backstage. Said Lindsey Buckingham, "This is still based in a situation where there were two couples that had broken up. But we do talk to each other--we're not the Eagles." Ouch! The Eagles, by the way, will be at the Sprint Center this Saturday evening--their second time in Kansas City in the past five months.

- Prince is publishing three new albums simultaneously this week, LOtUS-FLOW3R, MPLSoUND and Elixer. The trio are available today for download, for those who pay an annual membership fee, at LotusFlow3r.com. Or, you can wait until Sunday and buy the set at Target for $11.98.

- Rumor is that The Faces are considering a reunion. For the unitiated, The Faces featured Rod Stewart, Ron Wood, Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Kenney Jones and had a huge early '70s hit with "Stay With Me." Wood would later join the Rolling Stones and Jones would join The Who to replace Keith Moon after Moon's untimely death. More recently, Lane has contracted multiple sclerosis which has left him confined to a wheelchair. Reunion rumors are not new--several surfaced last year that the band would re-unite and that Flea, bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, would fill in for Lane. Stay tuned...

- Kansas City is not on the current stadium tour list for U2. The band will play 13 U.S. cities in the fall and then more in spring 2010. The stage set for the band is quite expansive and will dwarf not only their infamous "PopMart" set but also the Rolling Stones' recent set-up from their "A Bigger Bang" tour. The fall U.S. leg of the tour starts September 12 in Chicago.

- Dave Matthews Band will make an appearance at the Sprint Center on September 30.
