JEORDIE WHITE | BASE TENDENCIES
With tour dates being postponed and reshuffled over the next week or so, there is good news to report for those of you in Florida. Two new dates have been listed at ticketmaster.com, May 21st at Mizner Park Ampitheatre in Boca Raton and May 22nd at Teco Arena in Ft. Myers. Tickets are due to go on sale this Saturday, April 3rd.
If you've been to aperfectcircle.net in the last couple of hours, you already know that the Sacramento show scheduled for tomorrow night has now been canceled, again due to Maynard's being down with the flu and losing his voice. Now the APC official site has announced that all shows through April 2nd have been postponed, which would add Long Beach (4/1) and San Diego (4/2) to the list. Rescheduling these shows has also resulted in dates in Boise (4/5), Spokane (4/6) and Vancouver (4/8) being postponed. Sacramento has now been moved to 4/4, San Diego to 4/6 and Long Beach to 4/7. As with the Las Vegas show, all of these postponed shows will be rescheduled, with the new dates to be announced in the near future.
Due to Maynard's being ill with the flu, tonight's show at The Joint in Las Vegas had to be canceled. The show will be rescheduled, but my guess is that it won't be until right before or right after the June 3rd Las Vegas show which was recently added. The tour finishes up at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Denver, CO on June 13th.
Another article/interview, this one from today's El Paso Times, has been added to the Press page.
A Perfect Circle is scheduled to perform a live acoustic set as a part of Seattle radio station 107.7 The End's "End Sessions" series, presumably during their stop in the Seattle/Tacoma area on April 9th. It looks like the only way to attend this special, one-of-a-kind performance will be to win tickets from the station.
In other tour-related news, the Rapid City, SD show scheduled for April 13th has been canceled. I called the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center to find out the reason for the cancelation and was told it was due to "routing issues", that their routing "took them somewhere else". The show is not likely to be rescheduled.
Thanks to aperfectcircle.net for the updates.
An brief interview from the March 21st edition of the Albuquerque Journal has been added to the Press page. Also, although the June 6th San Jose date has been taken off Ticketmaster's listings for some reason, it does still appear here on the Clear Channel website listings, so I'm guessing this show probably will take place.
Another new date has just turned up at Ticketmaster's listings for A Perfect Circle: Sunday, June 6th at the San Jose State Events Center in San Jose, CA. Tickets go on sale on April 4th.
An interview with Oklahoma City's The Oklahoman has been added to the Press page and can be read here. StarTwig71 has also sent in a little blurb from this week's Kerrang, which can be read here.
A Perfect Circle apparently likes Denver. In addition to the recently announced show at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Denver on June 13, the band will also do a show in Colorado Springs, on June 12 at the City Auditorium, making for a total of 4 Denver area shows on this tour. Thanks to skwerl at aperfectcircle.net for tracking down the name of the venue since I missed that part of it when the date was announced just prior to the Denver show on Saturday night.
With A Perfect Circle set to play a sold out show tomorrow night at the Magness Arena in Denver, Colorado, Jeordie spoke to the Rocky Mountain News, giving some insight into the writing process involved with Thirteenth Step. Click here to read the interview.

For anyone who wasn't able to catch A Perfect Circle's performance on The Tonight Show last night (or for anyone who wants to view it again), a downloadable version is available at aperfectcircle.net. The link can be found in the news item dated March 15th. If this doesn't work, there are also two options over at aperfectcircle.org, which can be found on the "News" page.
Just wanted to remind everyone that A Perfect Circle will be performing tomorrow night, March 15th, on The Tonight Show. It airs on NBC at 11:35 p.m. PST/EST and 10:35 p.m. CST/MST. Also, the Live and Candid galleries have been updated with one new photo each.
"The Outsider" video is now available for download in divX format over at aperfectcircle-france.com. Thanks to MOON for the heads up.
The video for APC's latest single, "The Outsider", will be added to rotation by Fuse TV on Monday, March 8th.
A Perfect Circle's official site has confirmed the May 9th date in Glens Falls, NY as well as announcing additional dates: May 10th in Augusta, ME (Civic Center), May 12th in Norfolk, VA (Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre), May 13th in Raleigh, NC (RBC Center), May 14th in Charlotte, NC (Cricket Arena) and May 15th in Atlanta, GA (Gwinnett Arena). A show has also been added for May 5th in "Hunington, CA" at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. Since the band is nowhere near California at this time, the correct location is more than likely Huntington, WV.
A new date on APC's Spring tour has been listed on Ticketmaster's website. The band will perform at the Nassau Coliseum on Friday, May 7th in Uniondale, NY. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, March 6th through Ticketmaster.
It looks like the tour date watch is on again -- aperfectcircle.net has picked up rumors of a May 9th show at the Glens Falls Civic Center in Glens Falls, NY as well as the possibility of an appearances at the Pinkpop festival being held in the Netherlands May 29th-31st and Germany's Rock Am Ring/Im Park festival which takes place June 4th-6th.
I also wanted to mention that Live Freaky! Die Freaky! is now scheduled for an April release, although I still have questions as to whether or not Jeordie actually has a part in it as originally planned. APC drummer Josh Freese, however, is confirmed on the film's official website as the voice of "Prosecuter Bug".
According to ign.com, A Perfect Circle will perform their latest single, "The Outsider", on The Tonight Show on March 15th, prior to the launch of their Spring U.S. tour on March 18th in Salt Lake City.
Jeordie was interviewed via telephone on New Zealand radio station 95bFM this afternoon and while most of the stuff regarding A Perfect Circle (and Manson) was pretty much the stuff we already knew, he was given more time to be able to shed light on some of his side projects. When asked about his participation in the Desert Sessions, he revealed that the single from the album, "Crawl Home" was actually half written by him. He says he started the song with Zach Hill of the band Hella, with whom he'd developed a friendship. Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age then took it and worked on it, and it eventually ended up on Desert Sessions 9/10. Regarding his solo material, Jeordie said he hopes to pick up working on that again this summer, as things wrap up with APC. With many songs already written, he is hoping to continue to collaborate with Chris Goss of Masters of Reality and also with producer Dave Sardy, with whom heíd also worked on Marilyn Mansonís "Holywood" album. He expects to not go for one sound, but rather to flirt with different styles, drawing influence from the Rolling Stones to Ministry to Pink Floyd. Finally, it looks like the Head Band project can be put to rest. Jeordie says the band was formed in 2002 with Amen's Casey Chaos and members of Queens of the Stone Age, and promptly disbanded "30 minutes later". Thanks to darkcircles and thirteenthstep.net for providing advance warning and the link to be able to listen to this interview.
For those of you in Sydney, Jeordie, James, Josh and Billy will be doing an in-store appearance at Utopia Records on February 21st between the hours of 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. Thanks to Yorkemoht and thirteenthstep.net for the info. For those of you in the U.S., two additional tour dates have surfaced via the Street Team website. Both dates are in Pennsylvania: Philadelphia on April 27th at the Tweeter Center and Hershey on May 4th at the Giant Center.
The "Hanging With..." segment in this week's Kerrang!, which features a brief Valentine's flavored chat with Jeordie has been transcribed and added to the Press page. The accompanying photo can be found in the Promo gallery. (Thanks to LindaLou.)
A new interview from the Dutch online magazine Frontpage-FOK! has been translated (thanks to enigmata and shadowmantis) and added to the Press page and the Live gallery has been updated with a new photo (thanks to NewModelNo.15).
An interview done with Jeordie in Lyon, France on January 17 has been added to the Press page. Jeordie talks about the current European tour, producing other acts, what's next for A Perfect Circle and the possibility of playing European festivals this summer. Thanks to enigmata for the translation. In other press-related matters, Maynard spoke recently to Kerrang magazine and spoke a bit about Jeordie's (and James') addition to the APC lineup. "I think that this album is about the process of understanding things about yourself, and healing," Maynard says. "Itís significant that those two people are in the band. They were part of two very large projects, and I donít think they ended too well for them, emotionally. So itís been wonderful to have people coming to the shows whoíve known Jeordie for years, and pull me aside and say, ĎIíve never ever seen him happierí. To me, if no-one else hears the album, itís been worth watching him have fun playing again." He claims he is not criticizing Manson, but "itís just that people get caught up in this thing and have an idea of what itís supposed to be about and lose touch when things break down, like in any marriage. Iím just thankful that I could be a part of that healing process were Brian can come to a gig and watch Jeordie play. I havenít seen that yet with Billy Corgan and James, but Iím sure it will come." If you can't find the magazine, the entire interview has been transcribed and posted here.
The confusion regarding the two dates in Worcester has been cleared up. APC's official website has changed the April 28th date in Worcester to Wilkes-Barre, PA (Wachovia Center). The April 30th date in Worcester remains on the schedule.
The offical APC site has updated the tour page, adding a date for Rochester, New York on April 26th at the Blue Cross Arena. They are also showing a date at the Centrum in Worcester, MA on April 28th as well as the previously uncovered April 30th Worcester date. Not sure whether this is a typo or whether a second date has been scheduled in Worcester. I'll update the info as soon as I know.
A Perfect Circle's official website has slipped in another new date on the second leg of the U.S. Spring tour, listing a show in Moline, Illinois on April 18th at the Mark of the Quad Cities arena. Tickets go on sale Saturday.
A preliminary track listing for Melissa Auf Der Maur's solo album shows Jeordie's contribution to the album as being on track #1, "Lightning Is My Girl", wherein he plays guitar. Fellow APC bandmate James Iha turns up on tracks #4 ("Head Unbound") and #11 ("Skin Receiver") on ebow and guitar, respectively. Additional musicians appearing on the album aside from those mentioned in previously issued press releases include Brant Bjork of Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age fame, Failure's Kelli Scott, John Stanier from Helmet and Atom Willard of Rocket From The Crypt.
For those of you in the Pacific Northwest/Oregon area, the venue for the Portland show on April 10th has been listed on APC's Street Team page. The show will take place at the Salem Armory, which is actually in Salem, OR, just south of Portland. Also, tickets for the Cleveland, OH show on April 23rd will go on sale through Ticketmaster on Saturday, February 7th at 10:00 a.m.

U.S. Tour dates, round two: Two more dates on the Spring tour have turned up at ticketmaster.com, one in Indianapolis on April 17th at the Pepsi Coliseum and another in Cincinnati on April 20th at the Taft Theatre. Both go on sale on February 7th (Indianapolis at 10:00 a.m. and Cincinnati at Noon).
A Perfect Circle will have a new video out to accompany the latest single release from Thirteenth Step, "The Outsider". Filming began yesterday, continuing into today. No word on when it will air or whether appearances from the band are included (my prediction: probably not). Thanks to aperfectcircle.net for the update.
The Press page has been updated with an interview from online music magazine Campus Circle and can be read here. Nothing we didn't already know in this one, though. Also, Moon over at aperfectcircle-france.com had the opportunity to interview Jeordie and James during A Perfect Circle's stop in Strasbourg the other day. The interview can be heard here and a review (in French) along with some photos of the show can be found here.
The discrepancy brought to light the other day regarding the U.S. tour dates has been cleared up. A Perfect Circle's official site has amended its listing and now shows the Norman, OK show to be on March 23 and the Dallas show on the 24th.

I will pass along the info as soon as this is cleared up.

As reported a few weeks back, Melissa Auf Der Maur's solo album, while scheduled for a European/international release in February, will not be released in the U.S. until May. It has now come to light that the UK will also see an earlier release than those of us Stateside, the UK release date being March 1st. For anyone who doesn't want to wait until May, you can pre-order the album at amazon.co.uk. The approximate shipping date will be March 3rd. A cut from the record titled "Followed the Waves" can be found at aufdermaur.com, Melissa's newly-launched official website.
Metal Hammer is reporting that A Perfect Circle is rumored to be among the acts scheduled to perform at this year's Download Festival. Other acts whose names come up include Slipknot, Metallica, Aerosmith and Kiss. Also in the rumor stages is the location of the festival -- Glasgow on June 2nd and Castle Donnington on June 6th. Nothing has been confirmed yet band-wise or location-wise, but for those of you in the UK, you might want to keep watch on this in case anything pans out.
Regarding the MTV special reported on the other day, it now appears that this will not be aired on MTV itself but rather will be available on satellite radio. A post at thirteenthstep.net gave a link to a page at xmradio.com. If you want more info on this, here is the post with the link.
