The top-selling hitmakers appeared on Good Morning America to make their highly anticipated tour announcement, including news that 3x Triller Billboard Chart Topper Dixie D’Amelio will join them on tour as a special guest. “Forever Tour” is Big Time Rush’s first official tour since reuniting and will bring the pop-culture icons to Madison Square Garden for their first ever headlining show at the famed building. Always most at home in NYC, the band promises an epic hometown show of sorts for the June 30th event.   

After exclusively revealing their nationwide tour plans, the group then took to the GMA stage for the world premiere and debut performance of their upcoming single “Not Giving You Up.” The song is officially due out this Friday, February 25th and can be pre-saved here. The song will be accompanied by a music video that sees the band jumping into a career as relationship specialists. The comedic masterpiece is directed by Erik Rojas and will premiere exclusively on RollingStone.com at 7am PST.   It has been 8 years since the band was last together in official capacity, with this latest run marking the new era of Big Time Rush.   

“Not only are we excited to be sharing new music with you this week, but we’ve been holding onto this secret for over two years and now it’s official!” said the band. “We are going back on tour! We can’t thank you enough for all of your love and support over all these years and we can’t wait to see you at the “FOREVER♾TOUR”   

The news follows a whirlwind 2021 for the band, where all four original band members, Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Logan Henderson and Carlos PenaVega, officially reunited for the release of their first new music in eight years – Their single “Call It Like I See It”. The band debuted the song with a performance at iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Philadelphia, followed by Jingle Ball Atlanta, and then went on to play two special live shows in Chicago and NYC, which sold-out in a matter of minutes, blowing expectations out of the water and showcasing the power of the band’s devoted fandom.   

About Big Time Rush
Big Time Rush became an overnight sensation in November 2009 when the scripted TV show of the same name launched on Nickelodeon. The show focused on the Hollywood adventures of four hockey players from Minnesota after they were selected to form a boy band. The show a huge success and later, Carlos, Kendall, James, and Logan came to life as a band off the screen releasing three full length albums and performing across the globe. As the show concluded in July 2013 and after four years of recording music and touring as a band, they went their separate ways but remained close friends through the years.

After 7 years, in an effort to bring joy to their fans during quarantine around the world, the members of Big Time Rush decided to appear together as a group to send a message of love and togetherness. This was soon followed by a socially distant performance of an acoustic version of their smash hit, “Worldwide”. These appearances resulted in hysteria amongst their fans and in the media, followed by BTR receiving 10+ million streams in 2020 alone. Four seasons of the TV show were added last to Netflix in March 2021 and have appeared in the Netflix “Top 10” trending titles.   The band finished off 2021 with a performance at iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Philadelphia as well as 2 sold out shows in Chicago and NYC, capping it off with the release of their first single in 8 years, “Call It Like I See It”, on Dec. 13th. Stay tuned for big things to come because Big Time Rush is back.

'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Zuko Actor Has Best Response to TikTok's Four Nations Filter

Dante Basco, Prince Zuko's voice actor from the 2005 Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series, uses a TikTok four nations filter with predictable results!


Dante Basco, the voice actor of Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation in the 2005 animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, is a Firebender like his character through and through, which was further proven by a new TikTok filter. The beloved series has been heralded as a paragon of Western children's animation since its release and retains a dedicated fanbase. Since its original release in 2005, the series has seen a variety of spin-offs and adaptations, including a much-maligned 2010 live-action film, the 2012 spin-off, The Legend of Korra, and an upcoming Netflix live-action series, announced in 2018.

Avatar: The Last Airbender was co-created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko and ran on Nickelodeon for three seasons, from 2005 to 2008. The series tells the story of Aang, the current incarnation of the Avatar, who is able to harness all four of the elements - Water, Earth, Fire, and Air - that a class of people referred to as "benders" are able to telekinetically manipulate. Each of these elements corresponds to one of the four nations in which its "benders" reside. Basco's character, Zuko, is the exiled Crown Prince of the imperialist Fire Nation, which started a war between the previously harmonious nations. The Fire Nation values honor above all else, and Zuko is no exception to this. He originally begins as one of Aang's primary adversaries who pursues him before eventually having a change of heart. At first, Zuko was not planned to be part of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series, but he went on to become a fan favorite.

TikTok's new "What Bender Are You?" filter promises to tell users which of the four nations they belong to, so it was no surprise that Basco was eager to test the filter's accuracy. The filter cycled through all four nations before landing on the Firebender result. The actor immediately responded with "Firebenders all day. Honor!," referencing Zuko and the Fire Nation's obsession with restoring their lost honor, prompting delight from fans in the comments. Basco also promised fans in the caption that this was "the first time I hit [the filter]," suggesting that perhaps TikTok really does have a sixth sense.

Since finding fame as Zuko, Basco's career has gone from strength to strength, particularly in voice acting. He returned to the franchise as a descendent of Zuko, General Iroh, in Avatar: The Legend of Korra, and has had additional roles in shows like Star Wars Rebels and Ultimate Spider-Man. Basco has also regularly used his TikTok account to engage with Avatar: The Last Airbender fans, sharing behind-the-scenes information and his personal opinions, as well a rare cameo with Zach Tyler Eisen, who voiced Avatar Aang. He retains a strong connection to the series and even admitted that he originally didn't expect Avatar: The Last Airbender to be popular.

Basco's TikTok comes as production is underway of Netflix's live-action adaptation of the original 2005 Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series. Details regarding the series remain relatively scarce, but Basco's character Zuko will be played Dallas Liu, who recently starred as Ruihua in Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the Hulu comedy series, PEN15. Basco personally advised Liu about playing Zuko in the reboot and expressed his support for the young actor. Avatar: The Last Airbender's co-creator, Bryan Konietzko, personally suggested that he wanted to see Basco involved in some way in the new series - whether this will come to fruition or not, and how, remains unclear, especially as Konietzko and his fellow ATLA co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino are no longer working on the adaptation. Basco's TikTok, however, clearly shows that the actor still has a lot of love for the series, and it may be an indication that his connection with the franchise isn't over yet.

Nickelodeon Characters to Entertain Kids at Rand Show 2022 in South Africa

The Rand Show 2022 is back with a bang and will see South African music heavyweights like Mi Casa and AKA entertaining audiences.


South Africa - Having been entrenched in childhood memories for many years, the Rand Show is back to continue providing those memories for generations to come.

Having had no choice but to hold off their plans during the first stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, the jam-packed expo, filled with music, travel, food, fun activities, carnival rides, and helicopter flipping rides, is returning after a two-year break.

Because it is such as large scale event, the Rand Show 2022 returns to Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg from 13 to 18 April. The media announcement revealed the star-studded music lineup and a popular cooking personality. 

Rand Show CEO Adele Hartgen told The Citizen because Nasrec has the capacity to host thousands of people, this will help stick to Covid-19 protocols which currently allow for 2,000 people outdoors and 1,000 indoors.

They already tested this during their spring edition in September 2021 and have decided to go full steam ahead for their big edition this year.  

The floorplan for all activations includes social distancing measures.

Rand Show 2022, children’s entertainment

Parents will be more than pleased with the children’s activations as there will be popular cartoon figures, such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer, and pop-up shows to entertain the whole family. 

Hartgen says they have upped their game in terms of kids’ entertainment including having more Nickelodeon and VIS content.

Rand Show music festival

The music lineup could challenge any local festival, with acts such as electro-pop group GoodLuck, Mi Casa, songstress Shekinah, Kelly Khumalo and headliners Mafikizolo and hip-hop artist AKA (real name Kiernan Forbes).

Blaq Spider Pantsula Group from Protea South in Soweto performs at Nasrec in Johannesburg, 24 February 2021, at the Rand Show media day. Rand Show 2022 is from 13-18 of April 2022. Visitors to the Rand Show 2022 can expect to find old favourites like carnival rides, helicopter flipping, exhibitors from a variety of retailers and food. Rand Show Live Music Concerts kicks off with a music festival from Friday 15 April to Monday 18 April, showcasing the best local artists, with two artists per day in the Main Arena.

The musicians will perform between 15 and 18 April, while there is a surprise performer who hasn’t been named as yet.

Rand show tickets

Standard entrance tickets start from R95 for adults. Children that are three to 12 years old and pensioners will only pay R60 for a ticket. 

The music festival tickets are an extra R150, which includes access to the Rand Show.

Clash of the kitchens

Foodies are going to be spoilt for choice, as organisers have introduced different types of cuisines from around the world to taste. Those passionate about food will have the opportunity to enter The Jacaranda Clash of Kitchens, a reality cooking competition with R125,000 in prizes up for grabs, as 40 teams of two will compete in live competition rounds over the course of the five days.

Celebrity chefs, Marinda Engelbrecht and Mogau Seshoene, popular known as The Lazy Makoti, will mentor each session and assist teams throughout (within guidelines, to keep it fair). Hartgen adds that bringing these chefs will help bring more delicious food to the event for many guests to try.
