Foo Fighters And Weezer Teaming Up
Australian fans of 90’s alternative rock are in for a treat next year. The Foo Fighters and Weezer are teaming up for a tour of Australia and New Zealand in early 2018. Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo recently told NME via interview that the two bands were “Friendly bitter rivals.” Weezer were figuring out the logistics for an Australia tour when the Foo Fighter camp invited them to open their tour down under. Cuomo said, “I don’t think they think of us as rivals because they’re 10 times bigger than us, but that’s how I feel because we came up at the same time.” Cuomo also said they’re happy to be opening and playing stadiums. Weezer is currently playing Europe and the United Kingdom, while the Foo Fighters are touring North America. Grohl and the Foo Fighters recently opened the new Anthem arena in the Washington D.C. Wharf District. When Grohl noticed a fan on crutches, he brought his orthopedic doctor out to talk to her. When Grohl’s doctor told the girl she needed to be wearing a shoe with her brace, Grohl gave her one of his. The Foos have been touring America in support of their ninth album Concrete and Gold, which released in September. Weezer is set to release their eleventh album, Pacific Daydream, on October 27th.

Scorpions Cancel Remaining US Dates
The German rock band Scorpions are canceling the remaining tour dates of the North American tour. Singer Klaus Meine has a severe case of laryngitis and has been advised to rest his voice. The band released an official statement this week. A top throat specialist in Los Angeles told the frontman “If he continues the tour, he could risk permanent vocal damage.” The Crazy World Tour, which has them paired up in the United States with friends Megadeth opening, will continue in Russia at the end of the month, with other European dates to follow. Klaus told fans on Facebook that “It breaks my heart to let you down for the remaining shows in the U.S.” The band said it hoped to return to North America in 2018. Guitarist Matthias Jabs said “it’s stupid” for a rock act to announce its retirement. Jabs recently told the Arizona Republic the recent farewell tour was their manager’s idea. Apparently, each member of the band mistakenly thought their bandmates wanted to retire, and they all went along with it. Jabs: “So we postponed the end of everything and now we don’t know. It’s kind of stupid to announce it. It’s getting a bit ridiculous when you say it and don’t do it, so we won’t do it again.” Earlier this month the Los Angeles City Council declared it “Scorpions Day.” The Scorpions are still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is one of the biggest Hall of Fame snubs considering the global recognition the band has. At the height of their popularity the band went and played the Soviet Union. They were the second foreign rock band to visit the country and developed a massive Russian following. The band goes back to Russia for a series of shows starting in Sochi on October 28th.

He recorded three additional tracks which went on to be the cornerstones of the album. Manson recently appeared on the third season of the WGN America television series Salem.

Kevin McDonald Teases Possible Kids In The Hall Shows
Kevin McDonald from Canadian comedy troupe Kids in the Hall is teasing the idea of doing new episodes of the show. In an interview with Consequence of Sound last month, he revealed that Lorne Michaels has been talking to them about a new project. The new project would possibly be “…like six episodes of sketches for something like Netflix.” McDonald has been doing a variety show podcast show called “Kevin McDonald’s Kevin McDonald Show.” He immediately realized someone had to take podcasts to the next level. The show mixes sketch comedy, conversations, and musical performances, and has been running about a year and a half. He has toyed with the idea of streaming the Kids in the Hall troupe live. The group are still friends and enjoy working with each other. Scheduling conflicts are the only problem. The focus of Kids in the Hall was never topical or news-related, so it still retains its validity today. Things that were absurd in 1985 are still absurd now. There is something timeless about skits featuring Skoora the Gentle Shark, Head-crushing, and calling skinny people fat. With any luck, McDonald and the gang will be crushing people’s heads again very soon.

Sports Tickets

Fall and winter means sports and more sports.

Lonzo Ball Makes Weak Laker Debut
The Lakers’ Lonzo Ball made his much-anticipated debut in the NBA last night. The Clippers beat the Lakers at the Staples Center, controlling the game from start to finish. Ball was guarded by Patrick Beverley, who gave him a rough welcome to the league. Beverley relentlessly defended, bullied, taunted and antagonized the young rookie the entire game. The first quarter found Beverley crowding Ball chest-to-chest on an inbound play 94 feet from the basket. He also stole the ball from the rookie at half court and took it in for a layup. Ball, the number 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft, had just 3 points and 9 rebounds in 29 minutes of play. He shot 16%, and missed both his free throws. He had only 4 assists, and his plus/minus was negative fourteen, the worst for any starter on either team. Lonzo Ball is sure to receive a lot of extra attention this season, a result of the media circus created by his father, LaVar Ball. The senior Ball has spent the last two years stepping on toes and creating controversy to draw attention to his Big Baller shoe company. Addressing the way Patrick Beverley shut down his son, LaVar Ball said “One game. Ok, you still don’t have your own shoe, you are still not your own boss.” Brook Lopez also made his Laker debut, and led the team with 20 points. Jordan Clarkson had 18 off the bench. Blake Griffin had 29 points, and DeAndre Jordan scooped up a Dennis Rodman-like 24 rebounds for the Clippers. The Lakers play the Phoenix Suns tonight in Arizona.

Wizards Beat 76ers In Opener
The Washington Wizards opened the season last night with a 120-115 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. John Wall had 28 points, eight assists and two blocks in 37 minutes of play. He put up several highlight reel plays, including two vicious dunks. The Wizards were in control nearly the entire game, but allowed the Sixers to tie it in the fourth quarter. A 5-0 run by the Wizards ensured the victory. Bradley Beal had 25 points and six rebounds. He was particularly effective in drawing contact, making it to the free-throw line 16 times. One telling stat that shows the 76ers’ youth was that the Wizards had 38 free throw attempts to the Sixers’ 19. In his first game after getting his max-deal contract, Otto Porter scored 10 points and 8 rebounds with 3 steals. The only Wizards starter to hit a three-pointer was Bradley Beal, who was 1-4. Porter scored the Wizards’ first eight points. Marcin Gortat had 16 points and 17 rebounds. Jason Smith started at power forward but sprained his shoulder seven minutes into the game. Kelly Oubre played 32 minutes off the bench, including the entire 4th quarter. He provided the team with great energy, and had 2 steals and 2 blocks down the line. He led the team in three-pointers, going 3 of 6. Jodie Meeks off the bench for the Wizards was 7-7 in free throw shooting. For the 76ers, Robert Covington led the scoring with 29. He went 7-11 from the three-point line. Simmons and Embiid both had 18. Offseason signing J.J. Redick was 4-8 from three. The Wizards play the Detroit Pistons tonight at the Verizon Center.
