On Friday night, The Revivalists kicked off their three-night hometown throwdown at the Orpheum Theatre in New Orleans, LA. As per new tradition, the first night was dedicated to their loyal fanbase, affectionately dubbed “RevHeads”, for an intimate evening with all those who purchased a three-night pass. The RevHeads Ball featured the band performing on the ground level, with a slightly elevated round stage in the middle of the room. With a select number of die-hard fans surrounding the band in all directions, the setting made for a very special evening of acoustic favorites, sing-along anthems, and even some unrecorded tunes and rarities, like “Mary Joanna” from the band’s 2008 debut record. The band also invited a newly-engaged couple to sit in the middle of the stage, to enjoy “Shoot You Down” during the encore, which was followed by “Wait For The Sun”–two songs that are not recorded in any official Revivalists’ discography.The Revivalists are full of surprises and will continue the party tonight to close out what’s been their best year yet. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for The Revivalists in 2018!Enjoy the gallery below, courtesy of photographer Adam McCullough.Setlist: The Revivalists | Orpheum Theatre | New Orleans, LA | 12/29/17Men Amongst Mountains, Chase’s House, Nobody Knows, Not Turn Away, Stand Up, Mary Joanna, It Was A Sin, Pretty Photograph, Keep Going, Wish I Knew You, Wild Flowers (Tom Petty)E: Shoot You Down, Amber, Wait For The SunThe Revivalists | Orpheum Theatre | New Orleans, LA | 12/29/17 | Photos by Adam McCullough Load remaining images
People’s United Bank,People’s United Bank recently presented a $25,000 check to John R. Killacky, Executive Director of Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, Vermont. Thirty years ago, the Burlington area’s corporate and philanthropic leaders came together with a common vision-one that saw the power of the performing arts and what they could do for our community. In the beginning, efforts focused on the restoration of a derelict theater (originally opened in 1930) to provide a well-managed, comfortable home for the performing arts. The late 1980’s and 1990’s witnessed significant expansion of the Flynn’s educational programming. The Student Matinee Series was inaugurated, teacher-training workshops were developed, and the first of many partnerships with local schools and school systems were initiated. The Flynn completed a multi-phased expansion and renovation project in 2000 and a comprehensive performing arts complex-renamed the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts-was born. The new Flynn incorporated two performance spaces: the original theater fully restored to its Art Deco splendor, and the FlynnSpace, an intimate 180-seat black box and cabaret performing setting, along with education and dance studios, a visual arts gallery, and administrative offices.‘People’s United Bank has generously agreed to participate in our ‘Take a Seat’ campaign with a lead gift of a $25,000 donation. The campaign will raise funds from the community to ensure that the Flynn Center continues providing quality performances for generations to come,’ said John R. Killacky, Executive Director of the Flynn Center.The Take a Seat campaign represents the second of three phases to assure that the facilities are in excellent condition and address evolving patron and production needs. Phase One was completed this summer and will lead to significant energy savings, safety, and production improvements. This phase included; enclosing the loading dock, sealing the rear foundation and redirecting storm water drainage. The second phase will replace auditorium seating (first installed in 1946), enhance the lobby and historic marquee, and improve the acoustics in the hall. Phase Three will be undertaken over the next couple of years and include development of an integrated vision for the entire Flynn campus of buildings. ‘The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts is a vital community-based cultural center for Burlington and the region,’ said Michael Seaver, President of People’s United Bank in Vermont. ‘I have seen so many wonderful shows at the Flynn Center and am always amazed at the high level of talent and quality of shows the staff at the Flynn Center are able to bring to Burlington, Vermont. The Flynn Center is truly a hidden gem.’About People’s United BankPeople’s United Bank is a subsidiary of People’s United Financial, Inc., a diversified financial services company with approximately $28 billion in assets.

Glenn Hoddle has told the Press Association he would like to return to Chelsea but accepts they will probably appoint another foreign manager.Hoddle had a three-year spell as Blues boss during the mid-1990s before leaving to manage England.The 54-year-old said: “I did a good job when I was there and a lot of Chelsea fans actually say when I meet them ‘thanks for what you did because we started something there’.AdChoices广告“Chelsea hadn’t done much for 27 years and they could start to see the progression that was coming very quickly. It has obviously been taken on since Ken Bates was chairman and [former vice-chairman] Matthew Harding died.“It has been taken on with new owners and the rest is history, but I think they will go foreign.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Manchester United beat spirited League One strugglers Yeovil Town 2-0 at Huish Park as they progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup.The Glovers weren’t about to roll over against their Premier League opponents and in the end it took summer signings worth £89million to defeat them as Angel di Maria and Ander Herrera struck in the second period for Louis van Gaal’s side.Gary Johnson’s men weren’t about to be negative as they welcomed their top flight opponents and Joe Edwards saw an early attempt fly wide of David De Gea’s goal, while Wayne Rooney did the same with another chance.A nasty clash of heads between Kieffer Moore and Paddy McNair unsettled the Manchester United defence further and Yeovil sought to target the youngster.Referee Craig Pawson was then kept busy as he turned down a Glovers appeal when the dazed McNair handled the ball and he then waved play on when it looked like Radamel Falcao had been hauled down as he chased a ball over the top.Yeovil should have taken the lead in the second half as they continued to push the Red Devils all the way but as the ball dropped to Moore in the penalty area he could only tamely scuff a strike into De Gea’s gloves.And Moore was left to rue his miss as just minutes later Herrera, when Darren Fletcher’s pass deflected into his path, spun and thumped a swerving strike into the back of the net, which left Jed Steer flapping at fresh air.Argentine international Di Maria was thrown into the fray as Van Gaal looked to snatch victory but his first real action was to head an Edwards effort off the goal-line.Meanwhile, Moore saw another shot hit Chris Smalling before sailing wide of the upright as Yeovil refused to give up.But as the Glovers pushed for an elusive equaliser they allowed Manchester United to counter in the game’s final minute and the deadly Di Maria gently clipped the ball over Steer and into the net to seal their progression.
