MUSIC NEWS: THURSDAY, JULY 27,2017 ARCADE FIRE - DRESS CODE RULES Arcade Fire are making fun of a story that circulated in which the band supposedly insisted on a strict dress code for their record launch party in New York tonight. Ticket holders were told they must not wear shorts, tank tops, flip flops, large logos, baseball hats, solid white or solid red. The Montreal band has not only denied that, but they're holding a Twitter contest asking fans to send photos of themselves in their least trendy, least hip outfit. The winner will get special access at tonight's show. A social media manager for the band admits to making the dress code rules without the band's knowledge. Arcade Fire's ``Everything Now'' album is out tomorrow. --- CHANCE THE RAPPER - CONCERT SECURITY Police in Hartford, Connecticut, are planning to beef up security at concerts that attract a young crowd…

MUSIC NEWS: WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 2017 ``DESPACITO'' - VENEZUELA Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee are not pleased that their song ``Despacito'' has been remixed as a jingle pushing Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's attempt to rewrite his country's constitution. Instead of being a song about seduction, the remix has lines like, ``For the unity and peace of our country, the constituent assembly moves forward.'' Fonsi says his music is for everyone to enjoy, not for propaganda. Daddy Yankee tweets that illegally appropriating the song is nothing compared to Maduro's crimes. Maduro's push to rewrite the constitution has created an international outcry and a protest movement that has left at least 97 dead. --- JAY Z - ``4:44'' ON CASSETTE You can't listen to Jay Z's ``4:44'' album on Spotify, but you can listen to it on cassette.

Linkin Park say in an open letter to Bennington, ``It was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place.'' Linkin Park say Bennington left a void that can never be filled and ``a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing.'' Bennington hanged himself on Thursday. The Los Angeles County coroner has officially ruled the death a suicide. An autopsy was done on Friday. --- SALES OF LINKIN PARK RISE AFTER CHESTER BENNINGTON'S DEATH The death of singer Chester Bennington has driven a huge boost in sales.

MUSIC NEWS: MONDAY, JULY 24, 2017 BEYONCE - WAX FIGURE The wax figure of Beyonce at Madame Tussauds museum in New York has been made over to actually look like Beyonce this time.
