Your daily dose of national music news for Tuesday, September 28, 2009...
- The Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band will perform on gabfest The View on Wednesday. Anyone else worried she's going to come between Whoopi and Joy and split the girls up?
- U2 has yet to make a profit on its 360 tour. You'd think a fleet of 200 trucks, plus an over-the-top stage(x3), plus the crew needed to drive the trucks, dismantle the set and set it up again (and run it) would be more affordable.
- I'm not sure if I should be surprised by this or not: Lil Wayne contributes a verse on the new Weezer album.
