The Shows, Movies and Concerts to See in 2006
December 26, 2005

Get your calendars out and warm up your TiVos because we're revealing the movies, music and TV shows that will shape the New Year.

Superstar Tom Cruise gave "Extra" a sneak peek behind the scenes on the Los Angeles set of his upcoming thriller, "Mission: Impossible 3." "We're going full on," Cruise said. "It's intense; I mean I haven't seen action like this."

But Tom will be doing box office battle with other big-budget action flicks like "X-Men 3" and "Superman Returns."

Media Week's Marc Berman gave us the scoop on the small screen, revealing some good news for the actors of "Lost." "It's the year of the drama," he said. "That's the hot trend now. The good news for the actors on ‘Lost' is that apparently there will not be any deaths in the near future."

Berman said to also watch for a comeback from former "90210" heartthrob Jason Priestley: "He's coming back into a new drama on CBS called ‘Love Monkey.'"

"Julia Louis-Dreyfus is also coming back in a new sitcom on CBS called, ‘The New Adventures of Old Christine,'" Berman revealed.

Meanwhile, in the music world, Kid Rock and the Dixie Chicks are both releasing long-awaited new albums in ‘06. And the Rolling Stone's Joey Levy told us that Billy Joel is hitting the road with a big tour: "He's got a new marriage, a new box set, and he's going to celebrate it with a new solo tour."

Aerosmith and Lenny Kravitz are teaming up for a tour de force tour of their own. "This is officially the bell bottom jeans tour of 2006," Levy said.

From big name tours to TV comebacks, "Superman" to super Tom, it looks like Hollywood will be kicking it into high gear in 2006.
