Add Tame Impala to the list of arena concerts rescheduled for next year. The mellowly psychedelic Australian group has booked Oct. 10, 2021 at Xcel Energy Center, a make-good for their postponed July 17, 2020 date.

Other acts including Elton John are being more cautious with the COVID-19 pandemic. Sir Elton is waiting until January 2022 to resume his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. His postponed June 2020 dates in St. Paul are now rebooked for March 22-23 at the X, it was announced last week.

Some other stars booked for 2020 Twin Cities shows have yet to reschedule including the Rolling Stones, the National, Roger Waters and Monsta X.

Tame Impala 2020 tickets will be honored for next year’s show, and refunds are available at place of purchase until Oct. 29, 2020. Perfume Genius will open the rescheduled gig.

Why did Prince's 'Purple Rain' jump 68 spots to No. 8 on Rolling Stone's 500 greatest albums list?

Did Prince’s 2016 death elevate experts’ assessment of “Purple Rain”? That’s a pertinent question because Rolling Stone published a reboot this weekend of its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and Prince’s classic soared to No. 8 from No. 76 in 2012’s version of this list.

His “Sign o’ the Times,” the subject of a super-deluxe reissue last week, ranked at No. 45, even though it is widely regarded as his best album.

Bob Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks” landed at No. 9, one of his eight entries, including “Highway 61 Revisited” (No. 18) and “Blonde on Blonde” (No. 38). Only the Beatles scored more, with nine. However, their “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” which had topped the two previous versions of this list, tumbled to No. 24.

Four of Prince’s albums made the Top 500, including “1999” (No. 130) and “Dirty Mind” (No. 326).

Two Minnesota bands were recognized, the Replacements’ “Let It Be” (No. 156) and Husker Du’s “New Day Rising” (No. 428).

More than 300 musicians, critics and industry workers voted in the third incarnation of this survey, which was first essayed in 2003. Voters with Minnesota connections include musicians Bob Mould and Dan Wilson and critics Steven Hyden, Michaelangelo Matos, Ross Raihala and Erik Thompson.

More than 150 new titles made the cut, including Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly” (2015, No. 19) and Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” (2019, No. 397). The list features 86 albums from this century, but oldies still dominate. The new No. 1 is Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” the 1971 protest album that is resonating anew in 2020.
