ZELLA COMPTON: Looking afresh at our beautiful spot in the world

Have your say

First of all this week, news of ageing rockers in places they’ve never been!

Bob Dylan has played his very first concert in China and agreed to only sing certain songs before taking to the stage.

The protest singer/songwriter agreed not to sing peace anthems like The Times They Are A-Changin’ so as not to offend the nation’s Communist regime.

Paul McCartney has announced his first ever show in Peru. 

He said ‘We had a great time in South America at the end of last year. The audiences know how to party and me and the band are looking forward to going back in May for some more rock ‘n’ roll fun!

‘This is our first show in Peru and my first time visiting there.

‘I’m really excited about it. I’ve always wanted to go so I know it’s going to be an extra special evening.’

Katy Perry has said her husband Russell Brand is teaching her British slang and phrases.

She commented ‘I say, “I’m dining out on that one mate,” and say “bin” instead of “trash” and “holiday” instead of “vacation”.

‘I feel a connection to British people because of my husband. I could be left alone in the UK and get on okay.’

It’s more than you can say about her husband!

And now this week’s ‘I never thought I’d see them back together again!’ moment.

The Stone Roses are planning a live reunion later this year, it has been claimed.

Frontman Ian Brown and guitarist John Squire settled their differences while attending the funeral of bassist Mani’s mother last month. What next? The Smiths?

The Black Eyed Peas have created a special T-shirt to raise money for disadvantaged children across the world. The group, fronted by Will.I.am and Fergie, has designed a limited edition garment which will be sold in aid of their Peapod Foundation, which helps provide education, shelter and healthcare for youngsters.
