Rock legends Aerosmith have announced that they will team up with Slash for a summer tour. The 'Let Rock Rule' tour will kick off in New York on July 10 and continue through August and early September. Members of the group teamed up with the former Guns N' Roses guitarist in Los Angeles on Tuesday (April 08) for a special performance to celebrate the announcement. Kevin Costner hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for the premiere of "Draft Day." The actor plays the general manager for the football team, the Cleveland Browns, in the movie. Also attending the premiere was his costar Jennifer Garner, who plays one of the team's executives. Rounding out the cast is Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn, who takes on the role of the no-nonsense mother to Costner's character. The film opens on April 11. ABBA members Bjorn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad attended a party in London to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the group's breakthrough performance at the Eurovision Song Contest. That performance launched ABBA's career - making them one of the most successful music acts of all time, having sold more than 380 million albums worldwide.
