Dio Returns To The Stage Via Hologram
Amid controversy, Ronnie James Dio is making a return to the stage via hologram. Thanks to modern technology, the updated Dio hologram debuted last night in Germany alongside the Dio Disciples: guitarist Craig Goldy, bassist Bjorn Englen, keyboardist Scott Warren, and drummer Simon Wright. The beloved heavy metal legend passed away seven years ago on May 16, 2010. Some find the use of the hologram disrespectful exploitation. Others think its just plain creepy. Nobody can deny, however, that it’s amazing to see and hear Dio with a live band. Anyone familiar with Ronnie James Dio knew how much he loved his fans. The hologram was an idea come up with by wife and manager Wendy Dio as a way for fans to continue to enjoy and experience the music. Wendy Dio, in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock this year said, “The hologram is supposed to be a gift to the fans, plain and simple – given in the same spirit in which Ronnie gave.” The hologram and vocal are synced up to the live band, which plays a set of classic Dio songs. “We Rock”, “Holy Diver”, and “Rainbow in the Dark” are among the favorites in the setlist. Dio, who fronted three of the genre’s key bands including Rainbow, Black Sabbath, and Dio, is one of the most definitive voices of classic metal. The Dio Disciples are currently touring Europe but have U.S. dates in 2018. They play the Whiskey in California January 25th.

Springsteen Extends Broadway Show
Bruce Springsteen is extending his sold-out “Springsteen On Broadway” solo show by four months. The show has been running at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City since October. Springsteen has been performing five shows a week, from Tuesday through Saturday. The run was originally scheduled to be a month long, but demand has far exceeded expectations. The show centers around the life and music of Springsteen, with him playing on the acoustic guitar and piano. Along with performing songs, Springsteen tells stories and reads excerpts from his 2016 autobiography, Born to Run. The show normally includes a setlist of fifteen songs. Some of the songs he plays in the show include: “Thunder Road”, “My Hometown”, “Born in the U.S.A.”, “Growin’ Up”, and “The Promised Land.” Wife and E Street Band member Patti Scialfa joins Springsteen on “Tougher Than the Rest” and “Brilliant Disguise.” With the incredible demand and the small size of the intimate 960-seat venue, the show could theoretically run for as long as Springsteen feels like doing it. With the added dates, the show currently runs through June 2018.

Excellent Cast Delivers In New Jumanji Movie
The new Dwayne Johnson/Kevin Hart team up Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle debuted this weekend to great reviews. The sequel to the 22-year old Robin Williams movie is full of action, comedy, and fun. In addition to Johnson and Hart, the cast includes Karen Gillan (who is “Nebula” from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise) and Jack Black. The sequel sees the original premise of the board game Jumanji updated to be a video game. Part of the fun is seeing these stars playing against type. The stars are the video game avatars chosen by a group of kids, and their personalities don’t necessarily match up to those expected to be played by the stars. Dwayne Johnson’s character, for instance, is a controlled by a geeky kid. Kevin Hart’s zoologist character is played by a muscled jock. Jack Black is embodied by a popular schoolgirl. The movie is more sequel than a reboot. The movie has Karen Gillan dressed in an outfit that is ridiculously small. This caused some mild social media outrage pre-screenings, but the tiny outfit is part of the movie’s humor. The movie moves along at a great pace, with the excellent cast making up for any minor shortcomings in the story.

Comedian Kevin Hart Finishes NYC Marathon
Comedian Kevin Hart ran the New York City Marathon Sunday, finishing with a time of 4 hours, six seconds. He was also involved in a strange but funny mix-up. Fans track NYC marathon runners on a phone application by TCS. The app tracks the runners on a map, and lists split times at every 5 kilometers, the halfway point, and finish. Over 20,000 fans tracking Hart’s progress on the marathon app were mistakenly following the wrong Kevin Hart. A 58-year-old South Florida man with the same name ran the race at the same time as the comedian. The comedian Kevin Hart found it amusing. Hart told NBC “It’s not easy to run a marathon and that’s why I think it’s funny that people were tracking me thinking it was him. I was just cracking up. I couldn’t believe it.” In a video Hart posted to Instagram, Hart said he’s set a goal of earning five marathon medals, and to finish with a time of 3:45. He said he cramped up after mile 20, but was happy with his time.

Dave Grohl Hosts Jimmy Kimmel On Halloween
Dave Grohl seems to be everywhere. On Halloween the Foo Fighter front-man sat-in for Jimmy Kimmel as guest-host on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Keeping with the Halloween spirit, Grohl dressed as David Letterman, complete with letterman jacket and long white beard. Grohl gave a ten-minute monologue, and sat in with the audience for Kimmel’s annual Halloween features. Grohl promoted the annual "Tell Your Kids You Ate Their Candy Feature." The rest of the Foo Fighters backed Alice Cooper for two Cooper songs: “The Ballad of Dwight Fry” and “Killer”. Alice brought his stage show tricks with him, performing the first song in a straightjacket before being loaded into a guillotine and beheaded during the second song. If he ever tires of being a rock star, Grohl hosting his own late night talk show wouldn’t be unfathomable.

Wizards Lose To Clippers On Timekeeper Error
The Washington Wizards lost to the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday night, 113-112. They were robbed of robbed of victory in the final second of the game by a timekeeper’s error. Down one point with 1.2 seconds to go, Tomas Satoransky inbounded the ball to Bradley Beal, who hit the apparent game-winning jumper. The buzzer went off before Beal got the shot off, but it was clear something wasn’t right. The Clippers even knew something wasn’t right, as they thought they lost and nobody left the floor. Beal immediately went to the officials to check the clock, and he was correct. The timekeeper started the clock before Beal ever touched the ball. Confusion ensued. The game-winning basket, however, was not allowed. The officials ruled to give the Wizards another shot, this time with 1.1 seconds on the clock. The second attempt failed with Marcin Gortat having to hoist up an off-balance prayer that missed. The miss and the controversy spoiled a game for the Wizards that saw the team fight back from a 14-point deficit. Playing the eighth game without star point guard John Wall, the Wizards jumped out to a great 13-0 start, but the Clippers recovered and led much of the first three quarters. Otto Porter led the team with 27 points and 11 rebounds. Bradley Beal scored 25, and Mike Scott had 22. The Wizards take on the Brooklyn Nets tomorrow in New York.

Ravens Loss High Scoring Match To Steelers
In the Sunday night game, the Baltimore Ravens took on their hated rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers in a high-scoring affair at Heinz Field. The Steelers scored on their final four drives of the game to overcome a huge Raven lead and win the contest, 39-38. Up 31-20 after three quarters, the Ravens let the Steelers roll off 19 points in the slugfest. The Baltimore defense stifled the Steeler running game, but was badly exposed in the passing game. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards. Antonio Brown had 213 yards and Le’veon Bell had two touchdowns. Steeler tight ends ran all over the Raven secondary. Baltimore cornerback Brandon Carr and safety Eric Weddle looked helpless against Antonio Brown. The victory gives the Steelers possession of the AFC North title. The loss spoiled a great night for running back Alex Collins. Collins had 166 yards rushing and one touchdown. He also fumbled once, but the Ravens recovered. Collins hasn’t fumbled the ball since his rash of ball-handling problems earlier in the year. Javorius Allen had two touchdowns. The Ravens are behind the Bills for the second AFC wild-card slot. The team still controls their own playoff destiny, however. As playoff scenarios go, wins against the next three opponents, the Browns, Colts, and Bengals, all seemingly beatable teams for the Ravens, should see them in the playoffs.

Redskins Look Uninspired In Loss To Chargers
In perhaps their worst effort of the year, the Washington Redskins lost to the Los Angeles Chargers yesterday, 30-13. With the loss, the team was mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. From the opening kick, the team could not muster any offense against the strong Chargers defense. Worse than that, the team’s effort was non-existent. The team was uninspired. The Chargers piled up well over 400 yards of total yards, doubling what the Skins had. Speaking of the team performance and citing poor practices this week, defensive captain D.J. Swearinger said, “It’s not surprising to me at all.” Like any good coach should, Gruden put the spotlight of the blame on himself. “We haven’t gotten better, offense, defense or special teams right now. I’ve regressed. I have not gotten this team ready to play. It’s on me. Gruden is under contract for three more years. The Redskins got on the scoreboard in the second quarter with a Vernon Davis touchdown pass. The extra point clanged off the upright, no good. The timing of the snap and hold seemed to be slightly off. In the fourth quarter, Bashaud Breeland intercepted Kellen Clemens’ pass in the red zone, and ran it back 96 yards for a touchdown. Breeland has been the top corner for the team this year. Josh Norman has not regained his speed since coming back from injury earlier this season. Keenan Allen raced by Norman on a flea-flicker he completed at the one-yard-line. Breeland is a free agent next year, likely to command the type of money that will see him on another team. The turf of the StubHub Center is as bad as the grass at Fed-Ex Field. Linebacker Zach Brown blamed the field for a toe injury. Running back Byron Marshall left the game with a hamstring injury on a kick return, his foot clearly getting stuck in the turf. Three games remain on the schedule: the Giants, Broncos, and next week, the Arizona Cardinals.
