And unfortunately, some fans didn’t get the memo beforehand.
Found this out a bit too late... On the marquee... At the venue. Maybe next time, guys.— chadholder (@chadholder) October 12, 2018

Koo Koo Kanga Roo brought its comedic dance-pop tour to The Smiling Moose Sunday night. During the set, fans supplied the duo with a plethora of fun items.

Today Daniel Montenegro steps in Pittsburgh Opera’s production of Madame Butterfly as Pinkerton! Wishing him and the cast, including Michael Mayes, a wonderful show!— ADA Artists (@ADAArtists) October 14, 2018
With free admission, free drinks, and free entertainment, Creatives Drink invited Pittsburgh leaders to network and mingle at Bay 41 in Lawrenceville.
Up early to work. Saw Madame Butterfly in Pittsburgh last night. Marvelous production. First time I've seen it. Dated but beautiful music. So terribly sad.— C. Metzger 🌊 (@Ca_Metzger) October 13, 2018

Holograms, yea or nay? That’s what the Twitter-sphere is currently debating after Amy Winehouse’s family announced that a tour will take place next year, with the late singer performing as a hologram.
We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with the family of GRAMMY Award-winning artist @amywinehouse to celebrate her legacy. This worldwide hologram tour, set to start in late 2019, will raise funds and awareness for @AmysFoundation! 🎙 https://t.co/K0CIPH6Tty pic.twitter.com/GyR0ygyPEc— BASE Hologram (@BASEHologram) October 11, 2018
She hated touring when she was alive and I feel like this is very disrespectful.— Nicole A Restrepo (@TetrisChrist) October 12, 2018
Ok so I think Amy Winehouse was great, & I bet her live show was 💯. But this is a hologram. I can't help but wonder what she'd think about this. I would be furious.— audrey witch hunt (@dj_ewi) October 12, 2018
Instead of a hologram, we could, ya know, put living artists on the road & cultivate actual live music. https://t.co/wcIuNGiZ1D
There’s an Amy Winehouse hologram about to go on tour 😱 I’ve literally wanted this for YEARS.— Julia Hernandez (@ju_liagulia) October 12, 2018
I’m shook as hell, they’re really gonna have an Amy Winehouse world tour..... with her as a hologram. I’m doing anything and everything I can to go https://t.co/jHUTP5RhK4— Mel (@tolbeaurone) October 12, 2018
Even further Winehouse drama, the family also announced they signed a deal to make a biopic about the singer/songwriter. Monumental Pictures’ Alison Owen - Lily Allen's mother - and Debra Hayward are set to produce the film.
They are still trying to capitalize on her. Her dad didn’t try to help her when she was alive.— HeidiArmstrongKhoury (@newschic) October 15, 2018
Can't they let her sleep?— magpie (@magpie839) October 15, 2018
Sad news for Michael Bublé fans. The Canadian-Italian singer said while talking with Daily Mail's Weekend Magazine, "This is my last interview. I'm retiring."
collecting them checks lol— ARJ (@jojoba_onyaface) October 15, 2018
Michael Buble QUITS music following heartache over son Noah's 'life-changing' cancer battle https://t.co/j1TRxf04HK— Daily Mail Celebrity (@DailyMailCeleb) October 13, 2018
Before his son’s illness, Michael Bublé said he would worry about ticket sales, tours and how the public saw him — but the singer has now become embarrassed by his ego. Bublé said the experience has made him question his purpose in life. https://t.co/in6LOcEN7r— Global Edmonton (@GlobalEdmonton) October 13, 2018
If this is accurate, he's doing it for the right reason. All the best to him, Noah, and his family: Michael Buble quits music following son Noah's cancer battle https://t.co/LZ3YPIijbZ— Lorrie Goldstein (@sunlorrie) October 14, 2018
I actually cried after hearing about Michael Bublé retirement however i think is actually wise to do it since his family is first...— curiousvillager (@curiousvillager) October 14, 2018
Wannabe-rappers, it’s your time to shine! Last Friday night, Tyler, The Creator dropped the instrumentals from his 2015 album, Cherry Bomb. So, sharpen your pencils and get ready to spit rhymes.
My rap career is beginning today, guys. Tyler posted all the Cherry Bomb instrumentals on Spotify 🔥— Esperanza🕊 (@sebadont) October 12, 2018
What am I supposed to do with the Cherry Bomb instrumentals? Launch my rap career? You got it.— WhatIfIHadAMusicBlog (@WIIHAMB) October 12, 2018
tyler dropped the instrumentals to cherry bomb so you know we writing terrible rap verses over them and never recording it— blueface’s weed carrier (@sodieevolved) October 12, 2018
When asked if the instrumentals for his most recent album, Flower Boy, would be released, Tyler had this to say:
nope. i though CB wasnt appreciated and it seems that the instrumentals are giving that album a different light. people are finally coming around to it, most listeners initially hated it. but its some gems on it. hope you enjoy the instrumentals sir. https://t.co/yvPUVafaga— Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) October 13, 2018
and ive gained an insane amount of new fans since 2017, so its also a way of introducing them to previous releases they may have overlooked— Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) October 13, 2018
In other album release news, Usher surprised everyone with an eight-track album entitled “A”.

Usher swear he 18 lol— Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) October 12, 2018
While the album was not well received by most, a few took to Twitter to defend the R&B singer.
My opinion going to be an unpopular one, but this is the best Usher's sounded in years. https://t.co/3ZX5Jmi3YS— Kevin D. Grüssing (Pronounced Grew-Sing) (@KevDGrussing) October 12, 2018
But overall, this weekend was full of monumental releases for rap, hip-hop, and R&B fans.
People are calling this #Usher album trash because they expected Usher in his 20's. It's almost 2018. Music has changed. He's about to be 40 in two days. Why is it that folks want artists to be stuck in the same space musically?— Soul Collector (@TriRacialBeauty) October 12, 2018
The album is a solid 9.5/10
Ella Mai, Belly, Usher and Quavo all in one week 🔥 pic.twitter.com/v78JGJS0sW— Rufaro (@F_aro) October 12, 2018
