Lady Gaga halts tour due to 'severe pain'

Image

Lady Gaga has cancelled the last 10 dates of the European leg of her world tour due to "severe pain".

In a statement posted on Twitter, the pop star apologised to fans and said she was "devastated", but needed to put "myself and my well-being" first.

The Grammy award-winning singer has fibromyalgia, a long-term condition which can cause pain all over the body.

Shows in London and Manchester are among those affected.

In the statement, it said the "tough decision" had been made on Friday night with "strong support from her medical team".

Ticket holders can apply for a refund from 6 February, the statement added.

A cautious, shut take a look at the Debt Clock reveals a dizzying spiral upward
Sunday, February 4, 2018
By Robert Knight
ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Well, it’s not breaking news, but it’s worth noting as President and Congress spar over spending that the national federal debt exceeds $20,000,000,000,000 — and is rising by the minute.

We’re using zeroes here instead of spelling out “trillion” to help get across the enormity of this liability that we are piling onto our children and grandchildren.

Equally sobering is a visit to the USDebtclock.org, which tracks our rising debt at dizzying speed. Introduced on Feb. 20, 1989 by New York real estate magnate Seymour Durst, the U.S. National Debt Clock began by reporting a national debt of “only” $2.7 trillion.

By 1991, it was ticking upward at $13,000 per second. “The amount began accumulating so fast that the last seven digits became totally illegible,” Time magazine reported.

The clock, which was mounted on a building near 42nd Street in Manhattan, stopped in 1995 during a government shutdown (see, gridlock is good). That was the same year Mr. Durst died. The clock got going again under his son Douglas, but broke in 1998 when its computers couldn’t handle the total of $5.5 trillion.

With new hardware, the clock continued to tick upward until Sept. 7, 2000, when it actually began going backward due to the wonderful fact that the national debt began decreasing.

If you’re a Democrat, you’re quick to credit the Clinton administration. If you’re a Republican, you credit Newt Gingrich and the Republican Congress for slapping a lid on Mr. Clinton’s plans to spend us into oblivion. Since deficit spending is catnip to Democrats, the second scenario makes the most sense to me.

Anyway, that blessed period ended with the dot-com crash and the economic fallout from 9/11, and the Durst Organization cranked the clock back up in 2002.

By 2008, they had to revamp it yet again, adding a digit, because the Bush administration had nearly doubled the debt to $10 trillion. Over the next eight years, the Obama administration’s annual deficits (with the Republican House’s complicity from 2011 on and the full Republican Congress from 2015 on) managed to double it again. As of this week, the national debt is cruising beyond $20.6 trillion.

If we keep doubling this thing, it will eat every last penny earned by anyone within a fairly short period. Ever hear about the grains of wheat on the chessboard, where you double the number on each square? Before you can say “compassionate conservatism,” the thing is out of control and into the zillions.

Except for diehard statists who can imagine no reason to limit the size of government, the good news is that there is a growing consensus that the government, especially in Washington, is too big. Too complicated. Too powerful. Too expensive.

The federal goliath has not just stretched its constitutional limits but has busted through them like an Abrams tank through linen.

Frank Zappa, the late rock star with an acerbic wit, once was asked what he thought of the federal government. “I think they’re trying to take over the country,” he said without an ounce of irony.

Like a giant vacuum cleaner on the Potomac River, Washington has sucked up treasure and authority from the rest of the nation and wants more.

It is busily trimming back federal regulations and agency personnel, but it will take a lot to get us back to where we are a semblance of a constitutional republic with a limited government.

Meanwhile, the National Debt Clock keeps humming away near Times Square for anyone who wants to see why the debt for each individual taxpayer exceeds $170,000 and the total debt per family is upwards of $800,000.

The clock is right next to the entrance of an office of the Internal Revenue Service. “We thought it was a fitting location,” Douglas Durst told Time magazine.

As tax season gets into high gear, it’s worth visiting the clock. It helps us understand why federal elections are slated as far from April 15 as possible.

It's interesting that we have a trillion dollars a year for the pentagon and the unconstitutional wars... and another trillion dollars for less evil nuclear weapons upgrades...

...but no money for single payer health insurance. The irony of that is beyond most Americans.

We instead have to pay for the wars AND nuclear weapons upgrades, AND pony up hundreds of billions of dollars a year for health insurance company profits (just the profits), so they can deny coverage.

On TV, both the D's and R's fake a "battle" about getting health insurance, and both corrupt parties NOT TELLING about HR676, nearly half price full coverage health insurance for all Americans, whatever procedures they need, no bills, no denials, nobody left out...

HR676 is simply Medicare for all that expands coverage and drops age requirements...you go to doctor and give social security number and that's it...no bills no insurance battles. HR676 has been introduced in the last 5 congresses, but the rich are hoping the people don't find out about it, so they don't say it, and it's not mentioned elite controlled corrupt TV propaganda. If americans knew about it, they'd want it....better to protect the insurance company profits.

Since it's not on TV, Americans don't know about it, it's an example of TV controlling public opinion., controlling what they DON'T know.

Image

The elite own the media and the moneyed politicians. Many times if you try to tell a neighbor about it, they get mad at you, ridicule you, etc. etc... So complete is elite control over these people, we should all just lay down and take it, be quiet and don't resist like the rich need us to do.

So the beat goes on...it has to crash as all this debt is being monetized, ("printing" 60 B a month which waters down our money every month...but the CPI is jimmied so the elite can tell everyone inflation is low on tv to keep the masses pacified).

It would be possible to reverse all this relatively quickly, but not while we're giving all we got (and our grandchildren got), to the rich. If we don't reverse it, it will of course crash again...the rich will have everything and the rest of us will be in riots.

In order to reverse this we would have to IGNORE the big money D&R pony show on TV and vote for people who the TV is refusing tell us about...I don't know if Americans got what it takes to break free of TV control; look around, they are effectively fully controlled now.

Until then, the rich will keep the infighting going, the D's attacking the R's, and the R's attack the D's...while the masses are fighting about it, the puppy can keep on crappin'.

Probably a good idea for every household to have a year of food stored for every household member, cheap beans and rice may come in handy when a burger jumps to $3000.00 overnight.

It can happen here.

Nice post Grey_Ghost.

Paul Simon retiring from touring after 50 years of performing
New York Daily News
PETER SBLENDORIO
9 hrs ago

Paul Simon's touring career is coming to an end.

After 50 years of live performing, the musician announced his upcoming tour will be his last.

The Newark-born Simon, 76, says he experienced a range of emotions in coming to the decision to retire from touring.
Image
Theo Wargo/Getty Images for Global Citizen
Paul Simon’s upcoming tour will be his last.

"I've often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I'd consider bringing my performing career to a natural end," he wrote in a statement released Monday. "Now I know: it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief."

He said the recent death of his longtime guitarist Vincent N'guini played a part in his decision, but it wasn't the only factor.

"I feel the travel and the time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing," he said.

Simon, who kicks off his "Homeward Bound — Farewell Tour" on May 18 in Vancouver — noted he still plans to perform live occasionally at an "acoustically pristine hall" after the tour, with the goal of donating the proceeds to organizations devoted to environmental conservation.

Simon currently has tour dates scheduled from May through July that include stops in Canada, the United States and Europe.

He does not have any New York concerts listed on his website currently, though the tour does include nearby stops in Boston (June 15) and Philadelphia (June 16).

The final American concert on the tour takes place on June 20 in Nashville, while the last show overall is scheduled for July 15 in London.

watch out for Simon & Garfunkel 2019 tour dates

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Announces 2018/19 Season
Classical Music News Desk Feb. 7, 2018
Image

Los Angeles Philharmonic Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel and CEO Simon Woods announce the 2018/19 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall and beyond. The centerpiece of LA Phil 100, the Centennial program forges an exciting future for the orchestra, its music, its city, and audiences around the world with a forward-looking roster of globe-spanning artistic programs, educational and social-impact initiatives and public celebrations for all of L.A., from September 2018 through October 2019.

Highlights will include:

Premieres of over 50 commissions - the LA Phil's unprecedented investment in music's future

20 programs conducted by Dudamel, ranging from the world premiere of John Adams' piano concerto with Yuja Wang as soloist to a climactic performance of Mahler's monumental "Symphony of a Thousand" in its Walt Disney Concert Hall premiere

Cross-disciplinary collaborations with Benjamin Millepied, L.A. Dance Project and American Ballet Theatre for Romeo and Juliet; LA Phil Artist-Collaborator and MacArthur Fellow Yuval Sharon for exceptional performances of Meredith Monk's ATLAS and John Cage's Europeras 1 & 2; composer-conductor Christopher Rountree and the Getty Research Institute for an ongoing Fluxus festival; and Barry Edelstein and The Old Globe for The Tempest

The return of former LA Phil Music Directors Esa-Pekka Salonen and Zubin Mehta, plus a new work by former Music Director André Previn, along with special programs by former Principal Guest Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas

Major events include the 11-day eclectic season kick-off LA Fest, a Fluxus Festival and a multi-part Stravinsky focus led by Esa-Pekka Salonen

Programs celebrating the relationship between movies and music, pairing the orchestra with screenings of excerpts from Stanley Kubrick's masterpieces and a celebration of scores by John Williams

Appearances by internationally celebrated musicians, including Emanuel Ax, Daniel Barenboim, Andrew Bird, Yefim Bronfman, Lila Downs, Mirga Grazinyt?-Tyla, Hélène Grimaud, Marc-André Hamelin, LA Phil Creative Chair for Jazz Herbie Hancock, Lang Lang, La Santa Cecilia, Audra McDonald, Moby, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Murray Perahia, Bernadette Peters, Itzhak Perlman, Cécile McLorin Savant and many more

Gustavo Dudamel said: "I have been thrilled to help define and shape the LA Phil over the past decade of our great history, when we have worked with such enthusiasm to make ourselves more diverse, more inclusive, and more engaged with our community, while pushing ourselves every day to make music that is magnificent and courageous. This Centennial season, which focuses so strongly on artistic breakthroughs and inspired educational projects, such as our new YOLA center, is going to carry us forward with new momentum."

Simon Woods said: "The LA Phil has earned the reputation of being the orchestra that dares to do more, whether it's for the diverse range of today's composers or for the fast-changing communities that we work within and serve. As I look ahead toward this Centennial season, I feel that Gustavo and the artistic team have not just stood by the wager they've made on boldness and innovation but have doubled down on it. LA Phil 100 is indeed a celebration of everything that has led us to this moment - but, more importantly, it is a new beginning for wonderful things to come for this great orchestra and those who are inspired by its music making."

It all begins on September 27 with a festive opening night concert and gala, California Soul, directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer, in which Gustavo Dudamel and the orchestra will celebrate the abundance of the Golden State's creativity from John Adams to Frank Zappa. Signaling to all Angelenos that the Centennial has begun, award-winning artist Refik Anadol will illuminate the façade of Walt Disney Concert Hall with WDCH Dreams, a dynamic media installation that draws on imagery, video and audio from the LA Phil's extensive archive of more than 15,000 concerts presented since 1919. From September through October, Anadol will also present Archives on Display in the Gershwin Gallery, showing the arc of the LA Phil's first century as a grand visual sweep of art, architecture and music in dynamic relationship to the people of L.A.

The season kick-off continues on September 30 with a free, day-long Celebrate LA! event for the entire city. The day will have a CicLAvia, an open-air event that will feature performances by professionals and amateurs staged throughout the streets from Walt Disney Concert Hall to the Hollywood Bowl and culminating in a free Bowl concert featuring Gustavo Dudamel, the LA Phil, and a once-in-100-years roster of special guest artists. Additional details for the centennial launch events will be announced this summer.

The 2018/19 Centennial season will celebrate the orchestra's living history by welcoming towering figures such as Zubin Mehta, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Michael Tilson Thomas back to the podium, each with his own special focus; revisiting key moments in the past, such as the orchestra's work in the 1930s with African-American composer William Grant Still; and publishing Past/Forward: The LA Phil at 100, a two-volume compilation of photographs, interviews, and essays, including conversations between Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Tim Page and Gustavo Dudamel, Zubin Mehta, André Previn, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Beginning in March 2019, the LA Phil will set off an unprecedented year of global touring, performing on three continents, including appearances in Seoul, Tokyo, Edinburgh, London, Mexico City, and New York City.

The celebrations will continue through the 2019 Hollywood Bowl season and come to a close with a once-in-a-lifetime gala featuring Dudamel, Mehta and Salonen sharing the podium on October 24, 2019, 100 years to the day after the orchestra's first concert. The LA Phil looks forward to marking the Bowl's centennial in 2022.

Season subscription tickets are available now at laphil.com, 323.850.2000 or the Walt Disney Concert Hall Box Office. Single tickets will begin to go on sale Sunday, August 5, 2018. Information about the "100 for the 100" free ticket initiative will be announced later this summer.


Additional details can be found at the LA Phil's newly launched website: laphil.com.

STILL NO HELP FOR CONCERTGOERS TRYING TO SCORE TICKETS
Jane Stevenson
Published: February 11, 2018

Many were frustrated they could not buy tickets for Elton John's farewell show in Toronto. (Toronto Sun files)

Frustrated that you couldn’t get tickets for the first leg of Elton John’s farewell tour when they went on sale recently?

Apparently, you were not alone if the angry comments all over Twitter are any indication.

But if it makes you feel any better , the Ontario government’s much heralded anti-bot bill hasn’t become law yet despite being given royal assent in mid-December.

It still has to be proclaimed.
Image
Veteran concert promoter Michael Cohl (Toronto Sun files)

“Now that the bill has passed we are actively working to make sure we are ready to enforce the law on day one, when it comes into effect,” Attorney General Ministry spokesman Emilie Smith said in an e-mail to The Toronto Sun.

Smith said in the undetermined interim period — in the U.S., an anti-bot bill was introduced in February, 2015 and didn’t become law until December, 2016 — the ministry is engaged on a number of fronts.

They include working with “police to ensure they are ready to tackle illegal bots; the ministry of government and consumer services to develop enforcement strategies and train their consumer protection officers; consulting with industry on industry-led strategies to counter bot software, and working to clearly lay out the new administrative penalties,” she added.

Veteran Toronto concert promoter Michael Cohl is in favour of the government’s move to battle bots, but cautioned people to lower expectations when it comes to tickets for big shows.

The former chairman of Live Nation — who has handled high-profile tours by acts such as Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and The Rolling Stones during the past 45 years — said many tickets for high-demand concerts go to pre-sale credit card holders, fan clubs, VIPs, friends and family, record label types, the promoter’s staff, and corporate sponsors.

“By the time it’s all done, if you’re limited to four tickets per purchase, it’s (approximately) 6,500 people (over two nights at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre where Elton John is playing that will get tickets),” said Cohl, whose latest projects are Bat Out Of Hell: The Musical and the touring exhibit and The Pink Floyd Exhibit: Their Mortal Remains.

“You’re only going to have 6,000 to 9,000 ticket buyers (who get through) and you could have 300,000 trying … So the idea that people will just immediately say, ‘Well, it sold out in a minute and a half and it’s cheating’ — that’s total crap. Of course, it had to sell out instantly. Supply and demand — period. That is never going to change — bots or no bots.”

Music critic Jane Stevenson on who should retire

It really is Goodbye Yellow Brick Road for veteran British performer Elton John who just announced his latest tour will be his final trek — albeit over three years — including a Sept. 25-26 performance at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.

But he’s not the only artist packing it in on the road. (John says he’ll still make albums).

In the last two weeks alone, Paul Simon, Ozzy Osbourne, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Slayer have all announced farewell treks while Neil Diamond had to retire from the road due to a Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis.

Here’s a list of who I think should announce farewell tours:

– Van Morrison. The Irish star does his contracted 70 minutes and then he’s outta there. Where’s the love Van the Man?

– Bob Dylan. I will always love his songs and playing, but when was the last time you could understand what he was actually singing?

– The Eagles. When co-founder Glenn Frey died in early 2016, I thought that might be the end of the southern Cali country-rockers. Instead, they’re back out on the road this year with his son, Deacon Frey, and country star, Vince Gill. Huh?

– The Who. After countless farewell tours, maybe the time has come for Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend to finally pack it in?

– Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention are heading back out on the road with a hologram of Zappa. Uh, no thanks.

– Dead and Company. Remaining Grateful Dead members Bob Weir (guitar), Mickey Hart (drums), and Bill Kreutzmann (drums), along with guitarist John Mayer and others keep drawing them in. Didn’t Jerry Garcia die in 1995? Enough already.

– Hall and Oates. When I saw them last year, Tears For Fears got a bigger and better reception than they did.

– Pitbull. Have you been to a Pitbull concert? It’s a lot of abbreviated versions of Mr. Worldwide’s songs featuring recorded vocals of other singers. It’s more like a dance party than a concert.

– Black Eyed Peas. There’s no special sauce without Fergie.

– R. Kelly. Given the R&B singer’s alleged penchant for underage girls, maybe this man shouldn’t be on a concert stage?

Actor Bill Murray will be in New Zealand in November when he's due to perform alongside cellist Jan Vogler.

Legendary actor and comedian Bill Murray will perform in New Zealand in November.

He's set to sing and read classic American literature alongside world-renowned cellist Jan Vogler as part of the pair's New Worlds show.

The show is named after an album Murray and Vogler recorded together in 2017, with Murray singing and reciting passages from US classics accompanied by Vogler on cello.
Image
Bill Murray seen here in 1993's Groundhog Day, is bringing a stage show to Wellington.

The pair say their show "communicates the bridges artists have built between America and Europe".

"It's just a short journey from one continent to the other," Murray has said of the performance.

The programme features classic American writers like Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Walt Whitman and composers such as Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin and Stephen Foster.

The pair play Wellington's Michael Fowler Centre on November 14. Tickets go on sale to the general public on February 19, with presales available from February 14.

Murray is best known for his roles in films like Groundhog Day and Ghostbusters, but has a history of singing and performing music live.

I might have to attend this show, it is in my backyard after all.....

There are regulations when it comes to posting nudity online - if the server Zappa.com is on won't allow for its users to post pornographic content (the web host is liable and could be sued for content put on any of its sites). It's possible they could've had a complaint, in which case deleting is the only option to prevent a swift removal of zappa.com altogether.

Zijlstra got the chop, hurray hurray!

Are you paying attention USA? This is how a democracy deals with politicians who lie to the extent that it damages international relations.

Sites can go round posting stuff for ages until somebody compains to the webhost, then it's a cease and desist order. Do you think Yahoo checks every single site all the time for illegal activities?

We had similar issues with the Goose theatre. I was personally against it, but DED wanted to publish some Dutch films with English subtitles, so they could only be viewed by Goose members. It was there for years but then GoDaddy mailed us: we had to take the films down immediately.

Metallica wins the 2018 Polar Music Prize (the Music Nobel)

"The 2018 Polar Music Prize is awarded to the American band Metallica.
Not since Wagner’s emotional turmoil and Tchaikovsky’s cannons has anyone created music that is so physical and furious, and yet still so accessible. Through virtuoso ensemble playing and its use of extremely accelerated tempos, Metallica has taken rock music to places it had never been before. In Metallica’s world, both a teenage bedroom and a concert hall can be transformed into a Valhalla. The strength of the band’s uncompromising albums has helped millions of listeners to transform their sense of alienation into a superpower."


Personnaly I had no use for the band....

It was one of my entries into music so, even though I am not big on them currently and have not been for a while, kudos for them, I still revisit some old albums from time to time, Try Master of Puppets. Ciff Burton is great, and so is his piece Orion.

Mmm hmm. If someone plans to pdf this for doc circulation, please insert a space " " between the "+" and "1". I can't believe I forgot. Final output should form "+ 1" for clarity between operator and operand. If only I could go back in time.
