Today in Music News: Thriller Heads To Broadway, Auto-Tune Goes Rock
Your daily dose of national music news for Tuesday, January 27, 2009...
- The rights to a stage version of Michael Jackson's Thriller 1=28102">have been purchased by Broadway producer James Nederlander. The show, once it actually gets produced, will included songs from Jacko's Thriller and Off The Wall albums. No word yet on the inclusion of Jesus juice or climbing trees.
- Weezy's first rock single "Prom Queen" has indeed "leaked" to the web. I was joking when I suggested it would include Auto-Tune, but, I guess I was actually right. Since when did rock tunes need pitch correction?
