SoundBytes: Duran Duran, Chicago, Curren$y and more




-- Duran Duran, above, Moby, Underworld, and Glitch Mob are among the new acts who have been confirmed for Miami's Ultra Music Festival in March.

-- We've heard a lot of noise today about the Curren$y concert in St. Petersburg possibly getting moved or outright cancelled. To clear up any confusion, what we know is this: The rapper's concert is still Feb. 10 at Jannus Live, and NOT tonight at the State Theatre. Tickets are still onsale here.

-- Chicago is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on April 21. No, not the musical, ya goof! The band! Tickets go onsale Friday (2/4) at noon for $52-$92. Click here.

-- Remember the "Corndogs and Country" concert scheduled for Feb. 11 at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre, as part of the Florida State Fair? Jake Owen is out, and Colt Ford is in. That is all.

-- Miami New Times calls out Fleet Foxes for not coming to Florida on their upcoming tour. Yeah, what they said!

-- Finally, one of the most famous graduates of the University of South Florida is Gallagher. It ain't pretty, but it's true. So when Gallagher storms out of a heated interview with Marc Maron on Maron's WTF podcast, we consider that newsworthy.
