The Eagles are taking over the Sprint Center tonight

Most people I know hate the Eagles. Like, vehemently loathe them. (Last month, a woman stabbed her roommate just for listening to them.) And I know their distaste is perfectly justified: In its 42-year history, the band has delivered an astounding number of hits that have left oily grease marks on the great tablecloth of American rock.

Poor Delorean. The Spanish electro-pop quartet that has brought joy to dancing hordes with its upbeat, '80s-fused energy was held captive by the notorious Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas earlier this month, and have rescheduled most of their North American tour as a result.

  • A big save by the KCPD.
On the night of September 28, KCPD Sgt. Steven Griswold was dispatched to assist a broken-down car on Interstate 470. When he arrived, the driver attempted to jump 60 feet off the overpass. Griswold snagged him at the last second and pulled him back to safety. (The man is now at a hospital, where his mental health is being evaluated.) Watch the remarkable dashcam video of the save below.

Oh, Cher. A true diva's diva - and no good with goodbyes.

After debuting in 2011 and taking 2012 off, Kanrocksas is returning to the Kansas Speedway this summer, June 28-29. More info here. Today the festival announced its first three confirmed acts: Kendrick Lamar, whose rap album Good Kid, Maad City, was one of the most critically praised records of 2012; harmonizing folk heartthrobs the Avett Brothers; and, for all the young EDM kids, DJ Tiesto. I'd say they're doing a pretty good job so far of covering the demographic bases. Stay tuned: The festival people say they'll be rolling out the other confirmed acts in the coming weeks.

So, Van Halen just canceled about 30 shows for as-yet-unexplained reasons. But all those shows fall after next Tuesday's gig at Sprint Center. Which means we might be in for an extra-terrible or extra-awesome night, or maybe both.

Here's your mind-blowing factoid for the day:

As the Rockfest countdown clock hits the one-month mark, we've just crossed over 40,000 tickets sold! With a month left until the show and only 15,000 tickets left, we're heading toward our sixth consecutive sell-out!

God damn. That's a lot of people who love rawk.

Considering the gigantic, mind-boggling throngs of humanity that crowd KQRC 98.9's festival each year, that isn't much of a surprise, but in terms of sheer numbers, it's a little shocking, right?
