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.

Sports Tickets

Fall and winter means sports and more sports. Perennial favorites like Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals are fun to watch in the Eastern Conference, while Western Conference darlings include The Dallas Stars and St Louis Blues. For the NBA season kick off, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are still something to see.

 

Capitals Continue To Play Well
Before Thanksgiving this year, The Washington Capitals looked as bad as they have in years. There were bad losses to bad teams. Lines weren’t working. After adjusting the lineup in the offseason to meet the salary cap, there seemed to be a lack of effort. Fans and pundits began to buzz, wondering if a coaching change or big trade was needed. What a difference a month of good play makes. The Capitals just ended a four-game win streak with a loss to the New York Islanders. Loss aside, the team has been playing well again. A month ago, the Capitals took a beat-down from the lowly Colorado Avalanche, losing 6-2. The Capitals paid them back last night, winning 5-2. One small adjustment, much less drastic than getting a new coach, was simply a line change. Coach Barry Trotz put Backstrom and Ovechkin on the same line. The result is a team playing with a new energy, going 8-2 in the last 10 games, and a tie for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets each have 39 points. The Capitals take on the Boston Bruins in Boston Tomorrow. Boston is third in the Atlantic Division. Like the Capitals, the Bruins have also been on a hot streak, going 8-2 in the last 10.

Su’a Cravens Agent Has News Release
Washington Redskin Su’a Cravens is back in the news. Earlier this year, after the roster was finalized, Cravens announced his intention to retire from football. This was the second time he wanted to leave; he considered retiring at the end of the first season. Though moving from inside linebacker to safety, which is what he preferred, he showed disinterest in play. It was known that Cravens was dealing with a family issue. The organization initially gave him 30 days to consider it, then placed him on the team’s exempt/left squad list for the year. It was felt that the 2016 second-round pick needed time to work out some personal issues. While not participating in the season with the team, Cravens exhibited some bizarre behavior. He went to a local mall and gave away all his jerseys to fans. Yesterday his agent released the following statement: “As of December 7th, 2017, client Su’a Cravens has received medical clearance to resume all football activities. My client suffered from Post Concussion Syndrome and, under the care of Dr. Michael Collins at the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, Su’a has undergone targeted treatment and rehabilitation. He is now asymptomatic and cleared to return back to ALL THINGS FOOTBALL. Su’a is excited and looking forward to the 2018 NFL season and the many years to follow.” What is odd about this release is the announcement that Cravens had a concussion injury. The date of the injury is not stated. Cravens had a concussion in the fourth week of the 2016 season, but had been cleared to play, and had been playing, long after that. Is it possible that Craven’s troubles stem from this 2016 injury Impossible to know. Some fans see this announcement as a way to save face and return to a locker-room full of teammates who labeled Cravens a quitter. Either way, the Redskins face a tough choice next year. Do they take another chance and invest more time and effort in a player who could let them down again Do they cut Cravens and risk seeing him succeed in another organization Cravens is on a team-friendly rookie contract. The organization isn’t pressed to do anything. It will be no surprise if he gets traded, or just sits inactive with the team holding his rights.

Dolphins Shock Patriots On Monday Night Football
The Miami Dolphins shocked the New England Patriots last night with a 27-20 upset in Miami. The Patriots looked sluggish until the final quarter while Miami played with incredible passion. Miami cornerbacks played exceptionally well, and the Miami defense had Tom Brady off his game. The superstar quarterback didn’t complete his first pass until the second quarter. Miami cornerback Xavien Howard is suddenly an interception machine. He intercepted Tom Brady twice. Last week he had two interceptions against Trevor Siemian and the Denver Broncos. The Patriots sorely missed Rob Gronkowski, who is serving a one-game suspension. A Miami weak spot this year has been defending tight ends, and Gronk has five touchdowns against them in five games. Jay Cutler played one of the best games of his career, throwing three touchdowns and logging a 112.1 passer rating. In the first quarter the Dolphins out-gained the Patriots in yardage 123-2. Jarvis Landry caught all eight of his targets and scored two touchdowns. The Patriots loss breaks their eight-game winning streak. More than that, it gives the 11-2 Pittsburgh Steelers a shot to take home-field playoff advantage. Patriots coach Bill Belichick scoffed at the notion that the Patriots were looking past the Miami game to Pittsburgh next week. When asked this after the game, Belichick browbeat the reporter and responded: “Gimme a break.” Everyone seemed to love the Miami throwback uniforms. With a performance like last night, they will probably be worn more often.
