Lollapalooza security was arrested over the weekend for allegedly sending texts and faking Facebook posts that said there was mass shooting imminent at the festival. The 18-year old guard is accused of making up the threats so she wouldnt have the work the music festival and go home early.

ABC7 Chicago reported this week that weekend worker Janya Williams was behind bars after being charged with sending a fake text threatening the festival to a co-worker. The text read Mass shooting at 4 p.m. location Lollapalooza. We have 150 targets. This anonymous text, sent via TextNow, set off a chain reaction in the Chicago Police Department and the FBI after security supervisors notified authorities.

Williams shared another made up threat later. She allegedly told her boss that her sister had alerted her to another mass shooting threat on Facebook, and produced a screenshot from a fake account that Williams had made. Prosecutors say the message read Massive shooting at Lollapalooza GrantPark 6:00 p.m. The message was never actually posted on Facebook.

The ruse unraveled after authorities uncovered that Williams had sent the initial text, according to Block Club Chicago. An investigation into the  Apple ICloud account and an IP address showed they belonged to the [defendant]. Prosecutors said when Williams was brought in for questioning, she admitted she sent the message and created the fake post in order to leave work early.

Lollapalooza 2022 was sold out for the weekend shows, meaning there were about 100,000 people that could have been evacuated when Williams allegedly wanted to take some me-time.

Pearl Jam have unfortunately had to cancel the remaining dates of their 2022 spring tour. After Matt Cameron had to sit out the last couple of shows as a result of contracting COVID-19, another member of their camp, bassist Jeff Ament, has also tested positive for the virus.

After having to postpone their Gigaton tour for two years, the rockers were finally able to hit the road earlier this month. They played four shows in California and Arizona, and then Cameron tested positive on May 12. Several drummers, including former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, filled in for Cameron during the show. Dave Krusen, who was Pearl Jams original drummer, also played with the band during Camerons absence.

Now, Pearl Jam have released a statement confirming that Ament tested positive as well, so their upcoming shows in Sacramento and Las Vegas have been canceled.

Dear PJ fans and ticket holders,

While the band battled through Oakland after drummer Matt Cameron tested positive for Covid, and Fresno where Ed and the band got through it with the help of Dave Krusen as special guest drummer, they now have to present the heartbreaking news that this morning bassist Jeff Ament has tested positive for Covid.

This is horrible for everybody involved and we are especially sorry to those out there who have made plans to attend these shows.
Our attention to staying inside the bubble has been constant. We have truly done all that we could have to remain clear of infection.

Regretfully, the Sacramento and Las Vegas shows are canceled. Ticket refunds will be automatically processed to ticket holders method of purchase. We are so very sorry. Be safe out there.

Pearl Jams next scheduled U.S. performance is Sept. 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and will continue for a couple of more dates before wrapping up later in the month.

Deep into Slipknots set in Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada on April 11, Corey Taylor brought the show to a halt mid-song in an effort to direct medical personnel toward a fan who had apparently been injured in the pit.

The incident occurred while the band, who are out on the first North American leg of their headlining Knotfest Roadshow tour, were performing the Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses cut Vermillion. It was the 14th song of the set and was restarted and played in full after medics attended to the downed fan.

In the fan-shot videos seen below, the frontman not only helped emergency responders locate the injured fan, but he also managed the rest of the crowd. A premature round of applause in support of the harmed person was quieted by Taylor, who urged those nearby, Make sure they got room, make sure they got room. Everybody back up. Give them room, give them room ... They cant breathe if everybodys around them.

The cheers resurfaced and Taylor again instructed the audience to hold their applause. I want to make sure that they get out of the pit 100 percent okay. Hold on one second, guys. I appreciate that.

Once the situation was properly handed by professionals, the Slipknot singer then called out, Make some noise for the medics… Lets make sure they get out. Weve got a clear path right here. As soon as theyre safe, were starting this fucking thing again. Are they good? Okay. Should we just do it from the top? Okay. Do it from the top. You ready?

Hopefully the fan who was attended to is okay.

Were looking forward to finally hitting the road again this summer. It’s been too long and we can’t wait to get outdoors and share a night of music with our fans again, drummer Sean Kinney said in a press release.

We are so extremely excited to be hitting the road with Alice In Chains and Bush, Breaking Benjamin leader Benjamin Burnley added.

Foo Fighters released a new red band trailer for their upcoming horror-comedy Studio 666 on Feb. 18. Although it doesnt really reveal more information about the movies plot, it does give viewers a sense of the gore level for the film. You can watch the new trailer below.

The trailer includes shots of demons tearing out Dave Grohls intestines during a dream, people getting their faces cut in half by a chainsaw mid-coitus, drummer Taylor Hawkins getting his face sliced in half with his own cymbal and much, much more.

Grohl recently explained the plot of Studio 666 in an interview with The Howard Stern Show. The premise of the movie is that we move into this house, I have writer’s block, I’m totally uninspired, I can’t come up with anything, and I wind up finding this creepy basement, Grohl says (as transcribed by Chaoszine). And I go into the basement, I find this tape by a band from 25 years ago that recorded there. And there’s this song that, if recorded and completed, the fucking demon in the house is unleashed, and then, whatever, all hell breaks loose.

Grohl is also planning on releasing an entire metal album for the fictional band from the movie, Dream Widow. According to an interview Grohl did with Rolling Stone, the record is the bands lost album, one they were making before the singer went crazy and killed his fellow bandmates. He has already released one track from the band, March of the Insane.
