I think that's an unfair criticism of CHEZ... although they are primarily a classic rock station, I've heard them play Nickleback sometimes

Those tickets must be the most sought-after items in town. I'm sure Michael O'Byrne will be trying to hawk them to callers 1 thru 100 on CTV news at noon the day before.

OTTAWA - Rapper Ice Cube, indie rockers Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jack White’s latest supergroup are among the acts added to the list of performers coming to Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest, organizers announced Tuesday.

They join a bill that already includes KISS, Jeff Beck, Joe Cocker, k.d. lang and many more, all slated to appear at this year’s edition of the summer music festival. It takes place July 8-19 at LeBreton Flats Park on the grounds of the
Canadian War Museum.

Ice Cube performs on July 14, while Jack White brings his new band, The Dead Weather, to the party on July 19 for a show on the Rogers stage. Yeah Yeah Yeahs play the Bank of America stage the same night.

Also confirmed is a return appearance by B.C.’s Black Mountain, performing on July 17.

Still to be announced is a headliner for the festival’s final Saturday night.

Executive director Mark Monahan said he hopes to confirm the final headliner within a week. "By the end of the week, if we're lucky," he said.

Thats it? What about the lineup for July 13th? Won't there be anyone else performing that evening, or only STP? I was hoping we will see some more additions to that day, especially considering the day pass for the 13th is the 2nd priciest (priciest is for the day when KISS plays).

For anyone who has tickets to the Metallica show later this year, this is an email sent out on the Metallica mailing list:

Originally Posted by Metallica Mailing List

OTTAWA SHOW DATE RESCHEDULED

For all of our friends with tickets to the sold out show in Ottawa on October 29, we hope that date is on your calendar in pencil! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but that show has changed dates and we will now be at Scotiabank Place five days later on November 3. Of course your tickets will be good then, and if you cannot join us on the new date, you may return your tickets to the place you purchased them for a full refund. And for your trouble, everyone who attends the show on November 3 will receive a voucher for a free MP3 download of the show that can be redeemed at www.livemetallica.com.

We're happy to report that it has nothing to do with oysters, but can only tell you right now that the date change is due to a scheduling conflict with a very cool event coming up around that time. We wanted to let you know about the new date in Ottawa ASAP, but we've been sworn to secrecy on all other fronts, so keep checking www.metallica.com. . . more details in mid to late July.
Nice of them to provide a few download of the show, a savings of $10-13 depending on the format.

I'm also very curious about the 'very cool event' they've been 'sworn to secrecy' about. Sounds Metallica-related ... and if it's in Ottawa I'm going.
