Muse coming to Seattle in December, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas in August

I haven't quite recovered from the last Muse concert at Key Arena, in February of 2013. It was a visually stunning performance that showcased some of the rock trio's top hits, such as 'Hysteria,' 'Supermassive Black Hole,' 'Knights of Cydonia,' 'Uprising,' and 'Survival.' Interestingly, 'Map of the Problemathique' was omitted from the Seattle set list, though rotated back in a few nights later in Edmonton. I'm saying all this because Muse is headed back to Key Arena on December 12, as part of 'The Drones World Tour' that promotes the band's newest album, Drones. So if you missed them a few years ago, here's another chance to see them live - do not let this opportunity slip by. Opening for Muse (Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenhomme, and Domenic Howard) will be New York electro-rock duo Phantogram. Tickets are on sale at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone 1-800-745-3000. Drones, featuring the singles 'Dead Inside' and 'Mercy,' is available on iTunes and other music stores.

Have plans for August 21, 2016? You do now. Pop stars Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are teaming up for a concert at Key Arena, as part of a 40-city tour with planned stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Las Vegas, Washington DC, Newark, St. Louis, and Portland. Lovato will perform songs from her newest album, CONFIDENT, including the lead single 'Cool for the Summer.' Jonas, meanwhile, is juggling a music and acting career, currently filming the TV series 'Kingdom' and appearing in Ryan Murphy's 'Scream Queens,' plus a role in the upcoming James Franco-produced film Goat. He's expected to play 'Jealous,' 'Chains,' and 'Levels' at the show; he's been nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Male Artist - Pop/Rock. Tickets for Lovato and Jonas' double-bill concert go on sale November 7 at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone 1-800-745-3000.

You probably know Tituss Burgess from his Emmy-nominated role on the comedy series 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.' But did you know he could sing? The Georgia-born entertainer has appeared in four Broadway musicals, Good Vibrations, Jersey Boys, The Little Mermaid, and Guys and Dolls. Burgess has been added to the first two performances of the Seattle Men's Chorus holiday concerts, 'Home for the Holidays,' on November 28-29 at Benaroya Hall. Song selections include 'Silent Night,' 'Ave Maria,' and 'Text Me Merry Christmas.' Although the Netflix star will only share the stage with SMC for two nights, the holiday show is also being staged December 4, 6, 13, 20, and 21 at Benaroya Hall, December 3 at Tacoma's Pantages Theatre, and December 19 at Everett's Civic Auditorium. Tickets for the Seattle shows are $25-$78, and $25-$45 for Everett. For Tacoma, ticket prices range between $19 and $69.

Also coming to Seattle are Junior Boys on March 11 (The Neptune), Digable Planets on December 30 (The Neptune), Shabazz Palaces on December 31 (The Neptune), Kenny Chesney with Miranda Lambert on July 23 (CenturyLink Field), and 5 Seconds of Summer on August 28 (White River Amphitheatre).

Say 'Hi' to your Record of the Year winner at next year's Grammy Awards. Adele's new single 'Hello,' which has shattered records worldwide in a matter of days, is now the frontrunner going into the nominations announcement in early December with a ceremony date set for February 15, 2016. Unless the song misses the eligibility period cut off (October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015), expect the beautiful, haunting ballad to be included in several categories, including a potential nod for Best Music Video, helmed by Cannes Jury Prize-winning director Xavier Dolan. Speaking of the music video, 'Hello' received over 25 million views on YouTube on its initial day of release and features a cameo by American actor Tristan Wilds ('The Wire,' Secret Life of Bees). As of October 28, the number of views was over 111 million. This is the first piece of new music from the British vocalist in three years; her prior hit was 2012's 'Skyfall,' which earned Academy Awards for her and co-writer Paul Epworth for Best Original Song. 'Hello' is the leadoff single from Adele's forthcoming album, 25, landing in record stores November 20 and containing 11 tracks total. No word yet on a possible tour, but we're likely to see some dates next year.

Finally, you'll be pleased to know that two artists beloved by LGBT audiences are releasing new albums soon. Ellie Goulding, who was just here during Bumbershoot weekend, has scheduled Delirium to hit stores on November 6, while Elton John is coming out with Wonderful Crazy Night on February 5.
