Rumor has it that GRAMMY winners AC/DC, Madonna and U2 are set to take the stage at the 57th GRAMMY awards which is scheduled to be held at Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 8.
Hits Daily Double (HDD) is the first legitimate source make note of this rumor. “Nothing official yet, but the word from sources in inside the Recording Academy is that AC/DC, Madonna and U2 have been booked to perform on the Grammys” – their site read on Dec. 29th.
Let’s grasp at straws and try to make sense of these rumors, shall we?
U2 had quiet the year. In September, the Irish rock band made numerous headlines after debuting their thirteenth studio album, Songs of Innocence, exclusively on iTunes. Social media had a field day with the album’s release as many were stunned to find songs from the album, which they never downloaded, saved in their iTunes Library.
Madonna’s year hasn’t been quite as exciting. The Queen of Pop was basically forced into announcing a new album, Rebel Heart, when countless demos of songs she recorded for her album leaked. One of the songs which was leaked is titled “Two Steps Behind Me,” a song many assume is a diss track directed towards her rival, Lady Gaga.
Even with that said, 2015 is gearing up to be one of Madonna’s most successful years, career-wise. Shortly after the release of “Living for Love,” the opening track for Madonna’s upcoming studio LP, topped iTunes in several countries.
Keep in mind that in a recent interview with Billboard, Madonna hinted to a possible 2015 GRAMMY awards performance.
Billboard: …I’m picturing how that would be wonderful performed on the Grammy Awards, perhaps.
Madonna: Yes, that would be wonderful. That’s possibly something that’s gonna happen. (Laughs.)
That leaves us with Australian hard rock band, AC/DC. In addition to be being rumored to perform at Glastonbury 2015, the band recently announced dates for their MAJORLY-anticipated ‘Rock or Bust World’ tour. As of right now, the tour is set to kick off in Holland on May 5 and conclude on July 25th in Poland.
AC/DC, Madonna and U2 are all icons in their own right. We’re definitely looking forward to the 2015 GRAMMY awards.
