At WrestleMania 32 in 2016, WWE re-branded the Divas Division the Women’s Division and unveiled a new Women’s Championship title. Since that time, the women’s evolution has placed a greater spotlight on WWE’s female performers, including more prominent storylines and deeper character development that showcases their athleticism, charisma and star power.
Last October, WWE held its first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event, Evolution, in front of a sold-crowd and millions more watching on WWE Network.

2019 CANADIAN TOUR CONTINUES WITH UPCOMING SUMMER DATES



22 March 2019 (Toronto, ON) – Fresh off the first leg of their 2019 Canadian tour, Platinum-selling Canadian band Streetheart announce a special compilation album and are releasing their new single today. “Nature’s Way” is the last Streetheart recording featuring lead singer Kenny Shields before his passing in 2017 of heart failure. The performance from Shields carries a poignant weight: “It’s Nature’s Way of receiving you / It’s Nature’s Way of retrieving you / It’s Nature’s Way of telling you / something’s wrong.” Listen to “Nature’s Way” HERE.

Kenny Shields, along with Daryl Gutheil and Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve, were among the founding members of Streetheart in 1977. The band’s song writing style evolved and with the addition of guitarist Jeff Neill in 1981, Streetheart achieved landmark successes, earning multiple Platinum and Double-Platinum Certifications, induction into the Western Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and a JUNO Award in 1980.

Streetheart’s new compilation album, Life. Legacy. Music., is a celebration of the band’s career that has now spanned over 40 years. In addition to the never-before-released track “Nature’s Way”, the album includes fan favourites such as “Action” (the lead track from their 1978 debut album Meanwhile Back in Paris…), “What Kind Of Love Is This” (the highest-charting single written by the band), “Look In Your Eyes” (from their Double-Platinum self-titled album), “Under My Thumb” (a live show highlight that morphed into the band’s first Gold single), and more.

Life. Legacy. Music. will be released digitally and on CD April 12 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The CD booklet features notes from the band about each track all with collages of memorabilia and personal photos.

Pre-order Life. Legacy. Music. HERE.

This month saw the return of Streetheart to playing live shows after a two-year hiatus to mark and honour the passing of Kenny Shields. Daryl Gutheil, Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve and Jeff Neill have been joined by Paul McNair (Harlequin) on lead vocals and David Langguth (Kim Mitchell/Nelly Furtado) on drums. Kicking off the first leg of their 2019 dates with a hometown show in Winnipeg earlier this month, Streetheart will continue their Life. Legacy. Music. tour throughout Canada this summer.

ALBUM PRODUCED BY AND FEATURING GRAMMY® WINNER SHOOTER JENNINGS

20 March 2019 (Toronto, ON) – Guns N’ Roses bassist and New York Times bestselling author Duff McKagan has released “Chip Away”, a new track from his much-anticipated solo album, Tenderness, which will be released on May 31 via UME/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

“‘Chip Away’ is somewhat of a rail against cable news and divisive agendas…all for the almighty dollar,” says McKagan. “The song also highlights the fact that history repeats itself over and over, and that we will all get past this, together."

“Chip Away” follows the recent release of the lead title track “Tenderness”. Both songs are available as instant downloads with album pre-orders. Pre-order Tenderness HERE.

Duff McKagan – Tenderness:

  1. “Tenderness”
  2. “It’s Not Too Late”
  3. “Wasted Heart”
  4. “Falling Down”
  5. “Last September”
  6. “Chip Away”
  7. “Cold Outside”
  8. “Feel”
  9. “Breaking Rocks”
  10. “Parkland”
  11. “Don’t Look Behind You”


Also available for pre-order is a special limited-edition Tenderness deluxe book, which includes the album on 180-gram yellow & red starburst vinyl, the CD, and features an exclusive lithograph signed and numbered by McKagan. The hard cover book contains 40-pages of photos from the recording sessions and also presents liner notes written by Duff detailing his experiences with each song and the project as a whole. The vinyl features 10 tracks and a unique sequence carefully selected by McKagan and the album’s GRAMMY®-winning producer Shooter Jennings, while the CD includes 11 tracks.

Tenderness sees McKagan reflecting on his experiences traveling the globe over two and a half years on Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime tour. Encountering heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide on his travels during this tumultuous time in our world history, McKagan channeled a collective hurt into songs of monolithic power.

“We’re becoming divided at a time when we need each other most,” says McKagan. “When huge industries get replaced because of modernization, it’s time to retrain and bolster up those who get swept aside. Homelessness and drug addiction are avoidable in this country if we come together and get private and public cogs turning together in a positive direction. We can at least try to tackle mental illness while we’re at it. But alas, we stump and lie, point fingers and divide. We’re way better than this. As a father, I must say and do something now because I love my girls and my wife, and I love my country, and I feel I must be strong and use my voice now, do it while I’m able or perhaps never get a chance ever again.”

McKagan and Jennings began recording Tenderness a year ago this month, working out of Station House studios, located in Echo Park, CA, where they wrote and recorded in-between McKagan’s tour with seminal rock band Guns N’ Roses and the release of Jennings’ eponymous album, Shooter. Tenderness features Jennings and his band along with appearances by The Waters and The Suicide Horn Section (which features Duff’s brother Matt McKagan on trombone), amongst others.
