Pearl Jam Perform ‘Ten’ in Its Entirety at Philadelphia Concert

Pearl Jam  performed their second of two Philadelphia shows Friday night at the city’s Wells Fargo Center, a concert that marked the band’s 10th consecutive sell-out at the venue. To celebrate, not only did the Wells Fargo Center put up a banner  commemorating Pearl Jam’s achievement, the band also played their classic 1991 debut Ten  in its entirety and in order for the first time. Hear Eddie Vedder’s Moving Speech on North Carolina Boycott Like Thursday night’s Philadelphia concert, Pearl Jam opened up with Ten ‘s first track “Once,” but this time the band followed that up with “Evenflow,” and then “Alive” and then the full album performance of Ten was officially on.

Watch Muse Drone Crash Into Audience During Concert

Rock concert props can be dazzling, but also dangerous. During Yes’ 1974 tour, drummer Alan White once found himself trapped inside a large seashell – inspiring a similar debacle in mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap . Muse achieved their own moment of stage infamy during their Thursday show at London’s 02 Arena, as a large, blimp-shaped drone – ironing home the themes of their 2015 LP, Drones   – crashed into the audience. According to  NME , no fans have reported injuries from the incident, which is available to view via crowd-filmed footage.  Female Android Makes Own ‘Mercy’ in New Muse Video The technical miscue occurred Thursday night, during the third show of a four-night residency at the London arena. The drone – which fans have dubbed “dildrone” – attempted to fly over the audience as the band performed “The Globalist,” but the device only made it halfway around the venue before making its slow descent.    #muse #theglobalist #blimpcrash#Hindenburg2 #ohthehumanity A video posted by James Hatherill (@jamesh134) on Apr 15, 2016 at 2:45am PDT Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy was inspired to write the band’s drone warfare concept LP after reading Dartmouth professor Brian Glyn Williams’ book  Predators: The CIA’s Drone War on al Qaeda . The singer-guitarist spoke to Rolling Stone about the album’s dark themes – and the band’s plans to amplify them on the road. “Its going to be even more theatrical than probably any show we’ve done in North America,” he said. “I don’t want to promise too much, but we want to incorporate drones into the show. I don’t know what health and safety will allow us to do, though.” Related Muse Plot First Four Dates of U.S.

Luke Bryan Leads 2016 American Country Countdown Awards Finalists

As he did with the event’s inaugural staging , Luke Bryan leads the list of finalists for the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards. The superstar appears in seven total categories, including Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (“Strip It Down”) and Album of the Year ( Kill the Lights ). Sam Hunt appears in five of the finalist categories, while Zac Brown Band and Thomas Rhett each appear in four. American Country Countdown Awards Move to Los Angeles Sam Hunt, whose blockbuster Montevallo has spawned series of crossover hits, is also a contender for Artist of the Year, as well as Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year. Zac Brown Band’s ambitious Jekyll + Hyde is also an Album of the Year Finalist and the talented crew is up for Group/Duo of the Year. Spurred by the success of his single “Die a Happy Man,” Thomas Rhett is a hopeful for Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year. Chris Stapleton, who recently tied an ACM Awards record by taking home six trophies , only appears in one category for Album of the Year (for Traveller ), but that’s where the ACC Awards distinction between “finalists” and “nominees” is important to note. Finalists are based on “radio airplay charts, sales and streaming data” from April 1st, 2015 to March 28th, 2016 and no voting — membership or public — takes place. While Traveller has experienced explosive sales in the wake of his CMA Awards performance with Justin Timberlake, Stapleton’s radio play has yet to eclipse that of finalists Luke Bryan or Jason Aldean
