Iggy Azalea has been one of the biggest acts of 2014, with the release of her debut album The New Classic, which launched songs like "Fancy," "Black Widow," and (most recently) "Beg For It. Her guest spot on Ariana Grande's hit, "Problem" also helped solidify the Australian rapper's presence in mainstream music. After headlining several Jingle Ball shows this season, it's no surprise that Iggy is ready to embark on her second headlining U.S. tour.
The Great Escape Tour will visit more than 20 cities, kicking off April 14, 2015, in Fresno, CA. It warps on May 24, 2015, in Austin, TX. On the tour, Iggy will be joined by Nick Jonas, formerly of The Jonas Brothers fame, who recently released his second solo album, led by the single "Jealous," which peaked at No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Top 40.

U2 today announced they'll be heading out on an arena tour that will span 44 shows in 19 cities, starting in May 2015. The Innocence + Experience Tour includes 16 U.S. shows, stopping in six cities: San Jose, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; and New York, NY.
The tour follows U2's recent album Songs of Innocence, which was released back in September. Innocence + Experience will also stop in Canada, U.K, and Europe. The band's previous tour, U2 360°, spanned two years (from 2009 to 2011), so it's possible more dates will be added to Innocence + Experience.

Like Cher and Pat Banatar; Eminem and Rihanna; and Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean, Lana Del Rey and Courtney Love are the latest singers to team up for a tour.
On Nov. 29, Hole singer Courtney Love tweeted that she'd be seeing Lana Del Rey in a few hours in London, using the hashtag #excitingnews2come. Shortly thereafter, news outlets confirmed that Love and Del Rey would join forces during Del Rey's 2015 Ultraviolence tour.
Love and Del Rey will perform together for eight of the 17 North American shows scheduled during the Ultraviolence tour. So far, no act has been confirmed for the remaining nine Del Rey shows.

Over the weekend, it was confirmed that Katy Perry will be doing the halftime show at the 2015 Super Bowl. And she's already released a teaser (thanks, Pepsi) for what we can (kind of) expect. I'm rooting for the edible pink glitter idea.
What do you think Katy has in store for her halftime show?
Yesterday, Cher announced that she will be canceling the remainder of her current Dressed to Kill Tour. The cancellation comes after a recommendation from her doctors, who told the singer she needed more time to recover from a viral infection she developed prior to starting this leg of the D2K tour.
Several shows on the tour had been rescheduled, with a handful of shows also getting canceled last week. In a press release from Cher's camp, Cher said, ""I am totally devastated. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets. I'm so proud of this show. It is my best ever. I sincerely hope that we can come back again next year and finish what we started."
On Twitter, the singer apologized to her fans,and said she felt "gut wrenching [s]adness" at the realization that she wouldn't be able to finish the tour.
The canceled dates — plus the tweets from Cher — can be found below the cut. Get well soon, Cher!
