      John Mayer is heading out on his first-ever acoustic solo tour, with opening performances from singer-songwriters Lizzy McAlpine and Alex Benjamin. According to Mayer, it marks a return to his roots. "I began my career on stage with only a guitar and a microphone," he posted on Instagram. "A lot has changed since then, but I knew one day I’d feel it in my heart to do an entire run of shows on my own again, just like those early days."

      Kali Uchis 

      Kali Uchis' forthcoming astrology-inspired effort, Red Moon in Venus, is due out on March 3. “Love is the message,” the Colombian singer said in a statement. “Red Moon in Venus is a timeless, burning expression of desire, heartbreak, faith, and honesty, reflecting the divine femininity of the moon and Venus. The moon and Venus work together to make key aspects of love and domestic life work well.” Uchis recently took home multiple Billboard Music Awards and a Grammy nomination for her 2020 Spanish-language album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞.

      Madonna 

      Madonna just scrapped her anticipated Julia Garner-starring biopic to instead embark on career-spanning world tour. It might just come as a relief—albeit a frustrated one—for the actors involved who had to endure a now notoriously brutal bootcamp to secure the gig. The tour will celebrate four decades of iconic Madge hits like “Vogue,” “Human Nature,” and “Music,” as well pay tribute to her 1991 film, Truth or Dare

      When: June 28

      Where: Rogers Arena 

      Tickets: On sale January 27 via Ticketmaster
