At a touring panel yesterday, their management announced that AC/DC are planning on embarking on a massive 18-month world tour starting in October. The trek will be in support of the Aussie hard rockers' new album, the group's first since 2000's Stiff Upper Lip. The will be sold exclusively in the States at Wal-Mart, though it still lacks a definite release date. Expect the first single to be out some time next month. Creative Artists Agency manager partner Rob Light also shed some light on some more huge tours that'll hit the road in the near future, including Mariah Carey's "elaborate" shows, Green Day, Depeche Mode, Miley Cyrus, Stevie Wonder and the return of the best tour of 2007. "We have a great idea for Kiss to go out and do big arena tour," Light added. Additionally, other tour promoters said Weezer, the Killers, Journey and Plain White T's will also head out on extensive jaunts.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
