Just what I needed: The Cars announce 10-date tour
The Cars have announced their first tour in nearly a quarter century, a 10-city journey that will reunite the surviving members of the band: frontman Ric Ocasek, guitarist Elliot Easton, drummer David Robinson and keyboardist Greg Hawkes. Bassist Benjamin Orr, who died in 2000, will have his duties taken over jointly by his bandmates.
Also in the news: Their new album Move Like This will be released May 10, according the must-read website Slicing Up Eyeballs. (More news is expected Monday, says Eyeballs. What could it be? Webcast? TV appearances?)
