Magnetic Fields Album/Tour
There's a lot of pressure on the music world's premiere groups to follow up groundbreaking works with top albums. The Stephen Merritt-
fronted jangle-electric ensemble Magnetic Fields are releasing their first album since magnum opus 69 Love Songs made Merritt's songwrit-
ing famous in 1999. Set for release on May 4, i is another theme album - in this case, each track begins with the letter "1." As if this weren't
specific enough, the album is also sequenced alphabetically by song title. Magnetic Fields embark on a mini-tour to support i on Monday,
playing dates in Boston, New York and Philadelphia before hitting Minneapolis,Minn., Chicago and Columbus, Ohio.
"Rewriting History" by Dick Morris
This former Clinton advisor and political analyst publishes a rebuttal to Hillary Clinton's "Living History." Morris says that the senator
hides behind a chatty, charming and warm persona. This book promises to fill in the gaps that Clinton's memoir left blank.

by Ben Mezrich

"Van Helsing"
Hugh Jackman plays the titular monster hunter in Stephen Som-
mers' follow-up to "The Mummy" films. Trading in Wolverine's
claws for wooden stakes, Jackman takes on the Wolfman, Franken-
stein and Dracula.

"Friends"
After 10 seasons of friendship, "Friends" will come to an end in a
one-hour finale. The night-long farewell begins at 8 p.m. with an
hour-long retrospective and ends with a special cast reunion on
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" from the Central Perk set at
Warner Bros. Studios. Sadly, this cast of six will no longer be there
for you.

"Shrek 2"
The big green ogre returns to theaters with the obligatory sequel.
DreamWorks better hope that Mike Myers and company can recap-
ture the magic, having already greenlit a second sequel.

"Troy"
The sword-and-sandal epic returns with this violent retelling of
Homer's "Iliad." Brad Pitt's Achilles versus Eric Bana's Hector should
be a fight to remember. Unfortunately Orlando Bloom (Paris) won't
be one of the countless corpses at the end of"Troy."
"Frasier"
With 13 years and 31 Emmys under its belt, the comedy that
started back in a bar where everybody knows your name will get its
last laughs in an hour-long finale. Promised to be funny and senti-
mental, the episode will feature several guest stars including Antho-
ny LaPaglia and Jennifer Beals. Kelsey, it's time to move on.

Velvet Revolver
After nearly a decade on the collective back burner, former members of Guns 'N' Roses team up with Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland
and guitarist Dave Kushner to create Velvet Revolver. Two generations of music are effectively reshuffled and repackaged, creating a sonic
fusion reminiscent of early '90s rock records. Look forward to hearing Weiland's guttural vocals melodically paralleled by Slash's unforget-
table, gut-wrenching guitar solos on the highly anticipated Contraband.
"The Dark Tower VI: The Song of Susannah" by Stephen King
Roland, Eddie and Susannah return in part six of this mythic seven-part series. To save the tower, the trio they must save Susannah and
secure a vacant lot. Darrel Anderson illustrates the story with 10 color images.

Bonnaroo Music Festival
For it's third year, the Bonnaroo Music Festival will return to Manchester, Tenn., in June with bigger names and pricier tickets - about
$200 after all the service charges. Still, it's hard to resist the chance to see Bob Dylan, Trey Anastasio and David Byrne all in one weekend.
Prince
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Purple Rain, Prince unveiled his new album Musicology and subsequent tour schedule that will land in
Detroit on June 20 and June 21. For these two very special nights, Prince will perform 25 years worth of his music at the Palace ofAuburn Hills.
Expect to be seduced: Prince is back at top form, demonstrating that it is still acceptable for grown men to wear lycra and eye makeup. At the
same time, a lot has changed for the icon. After converting to Jehovah's Witness, Prince traded in his libidinous lyrics for more wholesome mate-
rial. Though he's more toned down, Prince purists nonetheless will be pleased by his two-and-a-half-hour set.

Wilco Album/Tour
A Ghost Is Born, Wilco's highly-anticipated follow-up to 2002's legendary opus Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, hits stores June 22. As with YHF, the
band is streaming the album from their website, www.wilcoworld.net. To support A Ghost Is Born (and show off keyboardistlguitarist Pat San-
sone and guitarist Nels Cline, two new additions to the group), Wilco are touring the U.S. and Europe, with stops at the Indio, Calif., Coachel-
la Festival and the Bonnaroo Music Festival before bidding America adieu at Chicago's Vic Theatre on June 12. And for you lucky kids
spending your summer on the other side of the Atlantic, Wilco's hitting nearly every European festival from Stuttgart to Stockholm.
"King Arthur"
Jerry Bruckheimer meets medieval times in "King Arthur." Sup-
posedly based on the actual history of the legendary king, "Arthur"
features no sorcery or dragons. But with Bruckheimer on board,
there are sure to be plenty of flying limbs, gore and very little in the
way of substance.
"Anchorman"
Will Ferrell's career is skyrocketing. After hilarious turns in "Old
School" and "Elf" - as well as a cameo in "Starsky & Hutch" -
he is on a roll like Eddie Murphy in the '80s. Playing Ron Bur-
gendy, a sleazy '70s TV anchorman, Ferrell may take his squirm-
inducing idiocy to new heights.
"Art So Hot It's Cool":
Ann Arbor Bummer Art Fair
This summer, the best art show around is in Ann Arbor. Celebrat-
ing its 34th year of excellence in the fine arts, this show will host
more than 450 highly talented national and international artists.
With masterful works of everything from sculpture to oil paintings
to metal works - with enjoyable entertainment for the whole family
- The Michigan Guild of Artists and Artisans is proud to present courtesy of warner Bros.
