Led Zeppelin To Reunite As Replacement For The Rolling Stones At Jazz Fest

first_imgDISCLAIMER [4/2/19]: We had some fun on April Fool’s day. Led Zeppelin is not, in fact, playing at Jazz Fest.UPDATE [4/4/19]: Fleetwood Mac will fill in for The Rolling Stones at Jazz Fest. Head here for details.UPDATE [4/8/19]: Fleetwood Mac has canceled their Jazz Fest appearance along with the rest of their upcoming tour dates as Stevie Nicks recovers from the flu. Widespread Panic has been added to the Jazz Fest lineup as their replacement. Head here for details.Over the weekend, news broke that The Rolling Stones postponed their upcoming U.S./Canada tour because Mick Jagger “needs medical treatment.” Doctors have advised Mick that he is “expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”Perhaps the biggest fallout from the Stones’ postponed tour is the cancelation of their highly-anticipated performance at the 50th New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 2nd. The festival even made changes to its long-running format to accommodate The Rolling Stones’ performance, adding an additional day with a separate, more expensive ticket which quickly sold out. In the wake of the cancellation, fans have been left to wonder who might fill the headlining vacancy—and whether or not a passable substitute for one of the greatest bands in history even exists, particularly on such short notice.Today, the festival’s organizers announced their solution, and it surely does not disappoint: Led Zeppelin will reunite to headline on Thursday, May 2nd at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.Led Zeppelin’s Jazz Fest performance will mark the band’s first official performance since the December 10, 2007 show at London’s 02 Arena, immortalized by the lauded 2012 concert film/live album Celebration Day. Much like the Celebration Day reunion, Led Zeppelin’s Jazz Fest performance will feature surviving members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones, as well as Jason Bonham, the son of late original drummer John Bonham.The reunion comes as a shock to Led Zeppelin fans everywhere. Until now, the band seemingly had no interest in reuniting. Their 50th anniversary in 2018 came and went without a live reunion, though they did mark the milestone with a variety of promotional releases including an illustrated book, various apparel ventures, a special re-issue of The Song Remains The Same, and more.Led Zeppelin reportedly had no plans to play together again, but when the Stones had to cancel, it created a unique opportunity for the band to play a proper 50th-anniversary show. In the (paraphrased) words of Mick Jagger, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you might find you get Led Zeppelin.’”Get well soon, Mick!April Fools!last_img read more

‘Koko’ faces complaint over quarantine breach

first_imgMANILA – A lawyer has filed a complaint against Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III for allegedly violating coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) quarantine protocols. “He blatantly violated laws, which put the lives and health of frontliners and even ordinary citizens at grave risk. I hope the DOJ will swiftly act and pursue legal actions against Senator Koko Pimentel,” he said. “As a lawyer and advocate of the rule of law, I cannot in good conscience allow the reckless actions of Senator Koko Pimentel to be brushed aside so easily,” the lawyer added. Pimentel, who was tested positive for COVID-19,  earned flak for visiting the Makati Medical Center on March 24 to accompany his wife Kathryna who was about to give birth. Pimentel was supposed to be under strict home quarantine after his exposure to positive cases. Aside from his hospital visit, it was revealed that Pimentel also went to S&R supermarket during his quarantine./PN Prohibited acts under this law are punishable by a fine of P20,000 to P50,000 and/or one to six months of imprisonment. “We are one with the Filipino people in condemning negligent and reckless acts which expose the public, especially our health workers to unnecessary risks,” Quicho said in a Facebook post. Former University of Makati law dean Rico Quicho 9 (right) is accusing Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III of ‘blatantly’ violating laws and putting Filipinos’ lives in danger. ABS-CBN NEWS Lawyer Rico Quicho said he emailed a letter of complaint to the Department of Justice against Pimentel on Monday “detailing the clear facts and circumstances that establish his direct violation of RA No. 11332 and its implementing rules and other DOH regulations.” Republic Act 11332 prohibits the “non-cooperation of persons or entities that should report and/or respond to notifiable diseases or health events of public concern,” and the “non-cooperation of persons who have been identified as having the notifiable disease, or those affected by the health event of public concern.” Quicho, who is a former University of Makati law dean, added that the petition on change.org seeking to charge Pimentel and remove him from the Senate has garnered 200,000 online signatures.last_img read more

CLEOPATRA’S STRIKE OVERHAULS ACCLIMATE LATE TO WIN GRADE II, $200,000 JOHN HENRY TURF CHAMPIONSHIP BY ONE LENGTH

first_imgCLEOPATRA’S STRIKE OVERHAULS ACCLIMATE LATE TO WIN GRADE II, $200,000 JOHN HENRY TURF CHAMPIONSHIP BY ONE LENGTH; TRAINED BY D’AMATO & RIDDEN BY CEDILLO, SMART STRIKE GELDING GET 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF IN 1:58.22      ARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 28, 2019)–Ontario Canadian-bred Smart Strike stalked the early pace set by Acclimate and overhauled his well-fancied stablemate late to take Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 John Henry Turf Championship by one length, providing former Northern California kingpin Abel Cedillo with his first-ever Santa Anita stakes win.  One of three Phil D’Amato-trained horses in the John Henry, Cleopatra’s Strike got a mile and one quarter on turf in 1:58.22.Fourth at the rail, about five lengths off the lead as the horses crossed the wire for the first time, Cleopatra’s Strike, who had been based at Woodbine Racecourse in Toronto prior to making his first start for D’Amato two starts back here on Jan. 5, angled off the rail at the quarter pole, headed Acclimation a sixteenth out and in furious final drive, won going away.“Phil told me to ‘make sure to keep him off the pace,’” said Cedillo.  “If he was going to stay with Acclimate (who was ridden by Victor Espinoza), it was going to go bad.  I knew if I could keep him on the bit, he was going to come home. I got a perfect trip. I was just sitting inside and everybody got tired and I just went.  I tried to go with Victor (at that point), because I know that horse is tough on the lead.”Most recently a close second in a second condition turf allowance going 1 1/8 miles at Del Mar Sept. 2, Cleopatra’s Strike, a 6-year-old Smart Strike gelding, was off at 9-1 in a field of eight 3-year-olds and up and paid $20.60, $8.60 and $4.60.“I was confident in his ability, I just didn’t know what his distance limitation may or may not be,” said D’Amato, who in addition to the one-two finishers, saddled longshot Ya Gotta Wanna, who finished seventh. “He trained like a horse that could go a mile and a quarter and Abel rode him to perfection.”Owned by Slam Dunk Racing and Michael Nentwig, Cleopatra’s Strike registered his first stakes win and picked up $120,000 for the victory, boosting his earnings to $376,844 while improving his overall mark to 25-4-9-2.Acclimate, a 5-year-old California-bred gelding by Acclamation, came off a gate to wire score in the Grade II Del Mar Handicap Aug. 17 and ran another huge race on the lead today.  Off as the 5-2 second choice, he paid $5.00 and $3.20 while running second by three quarters of a length.Richard Mandella’s United, the 2-1 favorite, checked in third, 1 ¾ lengths in front of Oscar Dominguez. Off as the 2-1 favorite with Flavien Prat, United paid $2.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.79, 46.05, 1:09.75 and 1:34.28.last_img read more

Barcelona plays its scoring hegemony in the League

first_imgThis Sunday at the Bernabéu will live the Classic number 244 of history. Some parties that have as main attraction your most absolute equality, as evidenced by the fact that Barcelona adds a total of 96 victories by 95 of Real Madrid, apart from 52 draws, throwing a total of 243 matches.Barcelona has in its hands the possibility of putting a little more land in the middle and adding the win number 97 -They have been four consecutive at the Bernabéu-, while Real Madrid could match their numbers with the Blaugrana club, counting their 96 win, and thus put the swords on high.But the equality between the two is such that until they only surpass a goal in the history of the League. After the win on the last day against Eibar (5-0), Barcelona reached 6,151 goals, beating Real Madrid (6,150), which lost to Levante (1-0). Barcelona has needed almost five decades to get ahead of Real Madrid in these statistics. There’s no doubt the emergence of Leo Messi has been fundamental to reach this spectacular ‘sorpasso’. And it is that when the Argentine debuted at Barça in 2003, Madrid were 71 goals ahead of the Blaugrana. So, in these seventeen years they have scored 72 goals more than the whites in the League.Rivalry is also on high if we refer to goals scored in the Classics, as Real Madrid adds 403 to 399 of Barcelona. That means that the first one to score on the Blaugrana side will have the honor of putting his name in golden letters of the club’s history by signing goal 400, as did César Rodriguez (100) in his day in 1952, Bernd Schuster ( 200) in 1980 and Luis Enrique (300) in 2000.And to confirm that equality is the absolute protagonist of the clashes between Barça and Real Madrid, it is only possible to add that both teams add 72 victories in the duels played in the league championship.last_img read more
