We have bad news news for fans of vocalist Gustavo Cerati of Soda Stereo. The Argentine rock star passed away today at age 55 of respiratory arrest at the ALCLA hospital in Argentina. Gustavo Cerati has been hospitalized since he fainted at a concert in Caracas, Venezuela, in 2010. It turned out to be a transient ischemic attack in which he had to have brain surgery due to a potentially fatal blood clot. He has been in a coma ever since.
The Call has reunited for two very special shows in California, including a date at West Hollywood's Troubadour on Friday, April 19. Best known for such hits as "The Walls Came Down," "Everywhere I Go," and "Let The Day Begin," the band disbanded in 2000, and it has been more than 20 years since their last live performance. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Robert Levon Been will join The Call's original members Scott Musick, Tom Ferrier, and Jim Goodwin for the performance. Robert Levon Been's father, Michael Been, was a founding member of The Call and the band's vocalist and bassist. Michael passed away in 2010 of a heart attack.
We're halfway through the week on this chilly day, Scenestar readers. There's a good number of great concerts tonight, but today we pay tribute to Jenni Rivera, our Show of the Night. The fallen star will be honored at a memorial service at the Gibson Amphitheatre at 10:00 a.m. The event will celebrate the life of Long Beach's Jenni Rivera, who recently perished in a plane crash in Mexico on Sunday, Dec. 8. You can also live stream the memorial service via Telemundo by clicking here.
