Take it from Paul: Kiss will never have Turtle Boy.

  • Yes, he will be wearing a costume. No, he won't tell you what it is.

  • The inaugural festival succeeded largely on the strength of surprise. This time, there could be no replicating that initial burst of wonder.

  • Need a ticket for Friday's sold-out, three-set show? You'll need about $500—or a miracle.

  • The follow-up disc sounds like what you’d expect of two titans combining contrasting lightning bolts: high-powered, excessive, brilliant and destructive.

  • It’s hard to be cynical about the gravel-punk band's first release in five years.

  • The country-ish singer-songwriter goes completely pop on her latest release.

  • It was worth attending just to see Brian Burton (also known as DJ Dangermouse) perform live.

  • From their 9th-grade repertoire to hits from the past two decades, Foo Fighters rocked Las Vegas.

  • A model of the festival site reveals positions of City of Rock and six performance stages.

  • While the quirky musical twists didn’t always match up with the smooth vocals, the production as a whole delivered.

  • What went down on the Vegas festival's third day?

  • Frontman Alex Turner can even make singing about a vacuum cleaner sultry.

  • And the electronics never overwhelmed the live percussion during the dance-pop act's evening performance.
