Should Prince's new Musicology go down in the pop annals as "The Asterisk Album?" It has earned one on a couple of fronts -- first, for the sales boost that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician got by distributing a copy of his latest CD to everyone attending his current concert tour, and second, for prompting Billboard magazine this past week to change its sales chart policy because of that. Musicology is Prince's hottest album in years, partially because Nielsen SoundScan, whose figures are used by Billboard to determine chart position, has counted as "sales" the more than 150,000 copies given to fans that have attended his concert tour.

ISAAC STERN was the most influential violinist of our time. His range was breathtaking, his enthusiasm infectious. Mr. Stern, who died at age 81 over the weekend, was a man of strong convictions. He passionately fought to save Carnegie Hall. He ardently supported Israel. And his adamant boycott of Germany, because of the Holocaust, ended only two years ago when he finally agreed to go there for a nine-day teaching seminar. Despite his hectic concert schedules, Mr. Stern had a burning desire to teach.

Paul McCartney, the activist?The former Beatle pauses, as if trying the once unlikely image on for size during an interview moments before the start of his first U.S. concert tour since 1990.For years, the late John Lennon was the former Beatle most associated with social activism.Paul was always the cute Beatle, the romantic Beatle, the conciliatory Beatle -- and the image stuck as he evolved in the '70s from rock-and-roller to family man.Rather quietly and dramatically, however, Mr. McCartney and his wife, Linda, have become outspoken advocates in recent years for environmental issues.

The 2006 concert landscape looked a bit like a pop music rest home, shaped for the most part by artists who have been at it for three decades and more, according to the 2006 North America tour rankings released by the trade magazine Pollstar. The Rolling Stones and Barbra Streisand topped the list, and the Top 20 was littered with old-timers, including Elton John, Billy Joel, the Who, Def Leppard, Journey and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. And the biggest thing on the 2007 horizon? A reunion of Genesis, featuring Phil Collins.

A little more than a month after postponing her Diamond World Tour concert in Baltimore, Rihanna delivered a stellar performance last night at 1st Mariner Arena. The rescheduled performance appeared to have little effect on her screaming fans. The pop princess pulled out all the stops, performing hit after hit. She started with a very dramatic opening scene, where she appeared to be kneeling in a black cloak. She launched into "Mother Mary," "Phresh off the Runway" and "Birthday Cake.

When Sade's first concert in a decade was announced last fall, she was billed as the sole headliner. Interest was expected to be high because the British R&B singer hadn't toured in years. But a couple of weeks after tickets had gone on sale for her show in Baltimore, which takes place Thursday , promoters decided to add some top-shelf support: Grammy-winning pianist and singer John Legend. It turns out one headliner doesn't cut it anymore. Reeling from last year's concert season that saw ticket sales fall for the first time in 15 years, artists and concert promoters, especially Live Nation, aren't taking any chances.

"This is Miss Franklin," the legend says. Her tone is formal and businesslike, commanding r-e-s-p-e-c-t from the jump. After a day of shopping, Aretha Franklin is being chauffeured to her Detroit home. She doesn't have much time to chat, she says. The Queen of Soul is on the move. In a few days, the celebrated singer-songwriter will be on the road in her custom tour bus to play a few spot dates along the East Coast, including a two-night, sold-out stint at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

And the band plays on. Six months after Mayor Martin O'Malley said he was quitting his band, the Celtic rock ensemble is still jigging with no final gig in sight. Except, perhaps, Inauguration Day 2007. The Web site for the mayor's band tells fans to keep checking for "farewell concert tour dates," that the prolonged send-off for O'Malley's March has "17 counties to go. " The band's only scheduled show, however, was for last night's Irish Festival at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore.

So there I was, on the phone with Taylor Hanson -- who, with the rest of Hanson, was on a tour bus somewhere near Boston -- when suddenly, a little girl started singing in the background.These days, it's not unusual for touring pop stars to do their interviews from a mobile phone on the band bus. Nor is it strange to hear odd noises in the background when talking to them. Sometimes it's traffic, sometimes the TV, sometimes another band member.But a little kid? That's not your typical tour bus fare.
