Next Launch for Falcon Heavy

Ive been seeing various media reports from the US about the next Falcon Heavy launch
Apparently the boosters are being tested in Texas and transported to Florida, one is already there being prepared for final flight status. They are saying a possible April launch ??

Also someone heard along the grapevine that Elon Musk maybe attempting a back to back Falcon heavy launch to prove his capabilities for a reusable cost effective heavy lift launch program ??
Anyone have any insider news on Falcon Heavy ?

I had read something about Falcon Heavy being phased out as SpaceX moved to testing of the BFR (which has already under gone static firing tests. This is the Methane / O2 fueled engine that is needed for a Mars return journey. That doesn't necessarily mean they have not had a Falcon Heavy job on the books.

Three different media sources confirm 2 more Falcon Heavy launches carrying Arabsat 6 satellites originally scheduled for March/ April but now re scheduled mid year June / July. And the possibility of a another later in the year
