Rolling Stones tour to start in Chicago
The Rolling Stones are ready to get back on the road after postponing their North American tour because Mick Jagger needed medical treatment .
The rockers announced Thursday the No Filter tour will kick off in Chicago with two shows on June 21 and 25. All the cities previously postponed are locked in and there's a new date in New Orleans.
Tickets sold for the original dates will be honored, but those who can't attend can get refunds by accessing their Ticketmaster accounts.
The group says in a statement the concerts will feature classic hits such as "Sympathy For The Devil" and "Paint It Black."
The No Filter Tour was slated to start April 20 in Miami. However, doctors told the 75-year-old Jagger in late March he couldn't go on tour.
DJ Khaled releasing single with Hussle
DJ Khaled is releasing a single with Nipsey Hussle that was filmed days before Hussle was shot to death in Los Angeles.
Khaled announced on Twitter on Wednesday that all proceeds from "Higher" will be donated to Hussle's children, 10-year-old Emani and 2-year-old Kross.
Khaled says he decided to share the single after much prayer and with the full blessing of Hussle's family. He says the "title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a 'Higher' level was the essence of Nipsey's soul."
The song also features John Legend.
Hussle was shot to death in what police said was a personal dispute outside his South Los Angeles clothing store on March 31.
The man charged in the shooting has pleaded not guilty.

"Music education should not be a luxury and with the help of these visionaries and this community, we hope to play a small part of sparking creativity and inspiring future songwriters, producers, and musicians," Perry said in a statement.
