Campbell announced the delay via MySpace, citing "unavoidable circumstances," and adding that tickets purchased for upcoming shows would still be valid in September.

- Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament was robbed and assaulted in Atlanta, where the band is currently recording a new album. The incident was caught on camera, though no suspects have been apprehended yet. [SPIN]

- In a total WTF? moment: Kajagoogoo have reunited. Yes. [Yahoo! Music]

- Paste Magazine is sadly among the music publications suffering in the global recession. The magazine is turning to readers for help — in exchange for a donation, you can receive rare and exclusive tracks from artists like The Decemberists, Neko Case, G. Love, The Hives and more... Remember, without these publications, blogs would have a tough time existing as well! [Paste Magazine]

- Random release: David Bowie's episode of Storytellers (1999, VH1) will be released as a CD/DVD set, and as a download on July 14 by Virgin/EMI. [Pitchfork]
