Glen Campbell is quitting touring, saying his Alzheimer’s has progressed too far for him to keep going. The announcement has been a while in the making; the “Wichita Lineman” singer’s 2012 tour was titled “Goodbye.” But while he's done with performing live, the country legend also has a new record arriving later this year. See You There is out July 30, featuring some revamped versions of some of his most popular songs like “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” and “Hey Little One.” The tracks were recorded during the same sessions that produced Campbell »

It's homecoming time as, for the latest leg in their Italian journey, chef Giorgio Locatelli shows Andrew Graham-Dixon around his home region of Lombardy. The overarching theme is how the people of the area, plugged into the rich markets of industrial northern Europe, value innovation and engineering know-how. The journey to Milan, for instance, takes the duo along the A8, the world's first motorway. There's a dark side to all this modernity, though, as Graham-Dixon holds forth on Futurism founder Marinetti's links with fascism. Jonathan Wright
There's been room for a while in the schedules for a show that reflects the relentless mickey-taking that bonds groups of young males, and this is it. Set in Stockport, amid the world of pub outings, iffy jobs and the faintest hint of recession, »

What's coming in season 12 of "American Idol"? The judges, host and producers of the hit reality show presented a panel at the TCA winter press tour to let us know exactly what we can expect in the next few months of singing sensations and judge arguments.
So what did we learn from the "American Idol" panel? Here are the top 10 things you need know about the upcoming season.
1. Hollywood Week -- 276 young singers made it to Hollywood Week in season 12. For this week -- and for Vegas Week -- the male and female singers competed separately. They will only come together when the top 10 are chosen.
2. A season for the girls? The producers and judges seemed certain that this could indeed be the season in which a female singer wins again. "The girls are pretty strong this year -- stronger than the boys," producer Nigel Lythgoe said. "You know, we've »
