    Another 9/11, another Brussels, another Paris? According to indictments unsealed yesterday by the Department of Justice, a three-man Islamist terror cell plotted versions of all the above for another attack on New York City. Before they could carry it out, an FBI undercover agent discovered the plot in 2016, then coordinated an international manhunt to capture all three erstwhile terrorists: The alleged scheme was more nefarious than many: The group, which wanted to attack Times Square and the New York City subway system, claimed to have been in touch with an Islamic State affiliate to obtain the official sanction...

    Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock reportedly researched hotels near Fenway Park in the run up to the deadliest shooting in recent American history. No hotel nearby the park commands a clear view of the Fenway stands. Officials briefed on the investigation's details spoke to reporters on the condition of anonymity Thursday, revealing Paddock researched Boston and booked a hotel room in Chicago overlooking Grant Park when the Lollapalooza music festival would have been going on. Boston police on Thursday issued a statement saying the department is aware Paddock likely researched the city and is working with federal authorities.

  • Desperate Hillary Calls On Beyoncé, Jay Z To Help Win Ohio

    The lights were bright. The beats were pumping. And the backup dancers were wearing blue pantsuits. After raucous performances from Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay Z, Hillary Clinton had one simple message for the packed, cheering crowd at Cleveland’s Wolstein Center: “Help us win Ohio.” Clinton’s campaign is turning to a series of free concerts to appeal to young and minority voters not necessarily motivated to vote for her.
  • Should Government Set Prices for Reselling Tickets?

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/5/2015 | Jack Spencer
    Under a law that dates back to 1931 ticket scalping is banned in Michigan. But that could soon change. The House has passed legislation (House Bill 4015) to repeal the 84-year-old statute that makes it a crime to sell a ticket to sporting events, concerts, plays and other attractions for more than its face value. The bill is currently awaiting action in the Senate Commerce Committee. Supporters of the measure argue that once a ticket has been purchased it becomes the property of the purchaser and government has no business interfering with an individual’s right to sell his or her...

    NY Times ^ | JULY 14, 2014 | BEN SISARIO
    The Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., where the Dave Matthews Band is playing Tuesday night, can hold up to 15,000 people. But as Yahoo and Live Nation see it, the potential audience is limitless. Tuesday’s show is the first in an ambitious partnership to supply free live video streams of a different concert each day for an entire year; more shows are planned by Kiss, Justin Timberlake, Usher and the Neighbourhood. If successful, the program will help establish Screen, Yahoo’s video site and competitor to YouTube. And for Live Nation, the world’s biggest concert promoter, and the rest...

She was prescribed the antibiotic Cephalexin which she has now suffered an extreme allergic reaction to," the statement said. "This type of extreme reaction can last from five to 27 days in these types of cases."

    Roanoke Times ^ | June 14, 2012 | Duncan Adams
    The FBI, the Virginia State Police and the Fairfax police department turned up the heat Wednesday in the search for the abductor and killer of Morgan Harrington, the 20-year-old Roanoke County woman whose skeletal remains were found more than two years ago on an Albemarle County farm. Authorities have launched a multimedia campaign -- which includes a public service announcement by Metallica guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield -- designed to renew public interest and develop leads for investigators in both the Harrington homicide case and an earlier abduction and sexual assault of another victim in Fairfax. DNA evidence has tied...

    President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama hosted a star-studded array of musicians to celebrate the blues Tuesday at the latest "In performance at the White House" series of concerts. Obama said in introductory remarks that hosting the concerts is a welcome perk of the presidency. “Some nights when you want to just go out and take a walk, clear your head... Secret Service won’t let you, and that’s frustrating,” he said. “Then there are other nights when Mick Jagger and B.B. King come over to your house and play a concert.
  • Report: 'Clinton Adviser Greenberg is Behind Israeli Protests'

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/9/11 | Gil Ronen
    The protesters demand "social justice" and a more equitable economy but their exact demands are not clear. According to an investigative report by Maariv's Kalman Libeskind, the protests were engineered by a group of media strategists who are directed by prominent Democratic strategist Stanley Greenberg, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others. Greenberg directed the strategists to create a protest that was not led by one specific group, in order to create social ferment. An unnamed left-wing leader would eventually step into this ferment and take the reins, Greenberg predicted. The Israeli strategists reportedly include Boaz Gaon,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | SEPTEMBER 24, 2010 | John Jurgensen
    ...At most concerts these days, when the houselights go down, the tiny glowing screens go up. As more fans mark the moments with smartphones, cameras and pocket-sized video recorders, a new kind of digital divide is emerging. Music lovers who try to document and share the essence of concerts are squaring off against those who think that just defeats the purpose. The debate is drawing participants from both sides of the stage. "I'm right here. This is live. This is where the show is."--Natalie Merchant ...Chris Robinson, 44-year-old singer for the Black Crowes, isn't on board. "As a band we've...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 07/09/10 | JOHN JURGENSEN
    The concert business is supposed to be the music industry's one sure thing. But not this summer. The Eagles, Rihanna and Maxwell have canceled tour dates. A wobbling "American Idol" tour has flooded the market with discounted tickets, and the resurrected Lilith Fair tour has called off concerts from Dallas to Salt Lake City. Even teen idols the Jonas Brothers announced this week that they're scrapping some shows. * * * With the continued evaporation of recorded music sales, acts at all levels of the talent pool must lean heavily on their live-performance earnings. That's forcing artists to tour more,...

    MOJO Magazine ^ | 11:14 AM GMT 23/03/2010 | Martin Aston
    Doolittle: yes please. Metal Machine Music: no thanks. The current vogue for "heritage" acts delivering their best albums live, in their entirety, is a double-edged sword, says Martin Aston. NEXT WEEK, THE WHO (or Who's Left anyway) perform Quadrophenia at London's Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity, while Primal Scream revisit Screamadelica at Olympia in November. At this rate, it's quite possible that every single famous act will have showcased their undisputed "classic" album by the end of 2010. Should we be worried? When I read the headline "Lou Reed Brings Controversial Metal Machine Music To Life"...

    In what I can only describe as being one of the most remarkable performances I have ever seen, two boys from the Catalunia Catholic Boy's choir sing the "Meow" song to classical music. You really must see this to believe it. I came away from watching this video with a new found respect for the talent these boys have been blessed with. The official name of the choir is called "La Escolania", and they are associated with one of the oldest monasterys in Europe, the monastery of Montserrat. This monastery is the destination of some of the largest pilgrimages in...

    Start off your week right by checking out this video of the high school students in the Chamber Choir of South Kitsap High School of Port Orchard, Washington were the students perform a great rendition of Halleluia! This was in Dec., 2008 in the Winter Festival. Freeper Lynn D's wife actually made 4 of the monk costumes, both Lynn and his were in the audience during the presentation of this concert.
