The legendary rockers launched their pandemic-delayed “No Filter” tour Sunday at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis without their drummer of nearly six decades. It was clear from the outset just how much the band members — and the fans — missed Charlie Watts, who died last month at age 80.news.yahoo.com

Former Trump casino where stars played goes out with a bang
The former Trump Plaza casino was imploded after falling into such disrepair that chunks of the building began peeling off and crashing to the ground. “I got chills,” Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small said. AdOpened in 1984, when Trump was a real estate developer in his pre-politics days, Trump Plaza was for a time the most successful casino in Atlantic City. AdBut things began to sour for Trump Plaza when Donald Trump opened the nearby Trump Taj Mahal in 1990, with crushing debt loads that led the company to pour most of its resources — and cash — into the shiny new hotel and casino. Trump Plaza was the last of four Atlantic City casinos to close in 2014, victims of an oversaturated casino market both in the New Jersey city and in the larger northeast.

A night at the ballet, in time for ‘Nutcracker’ season
Hamrick's Live Arts Global company is producing A Night at the Ballet, a free streaming event that premieres this week.

Grief, anger, disbelief: Trump voters face Biden's victory
Still, any fragment of possibility is enough for some Trump supporters to reject reality, feel aggrieved and rebuff Biden's calls for unity. Several Trump supporters interviewed by The Associated Press in recent days were rankled by widespread celebrations of Biden's win in liberal cities. They saw hypocrisy in the public, outdoor gatherings after Democrats condemned Trump supporters for attending big rallies — some were held indoors — during the coronavirus pandemic. Piotrowski, like many Trump supporters, wants to see Trump’s legal challenges continue. Unlike many Trump supporters, Michelle Sassouni wasn't shocked by the outcome of the election or the aftermath.

Rolling Stones' Lost Steel Wheels Concert Fires on All Cylinders
In 1989, there was a lot riding (pun intended) for the Rolling Stones on the release of their new record, Steel Wheels. Album coverWell, as The Rolling Stones – Steel Wheels Live (Eagle Rock Entertainment) – proves, the Stones still could rock and roll. Highlights include some of the many new cuts from Steel Wheels (“Sad, Sad, Sad,” “Rock and a Hard Place”), a slinky, sexy “Miss You,” ethereal “Ruby Tuesday” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” and barnburners “Honky Tonk Women,” “Gimme Shelter” (featuring Fischer), and “Brown Sugar” (with Keys recreating his classic solo). It was an appropriate article of clothing, as the Rolling Stones on this show certainly went more than 12 rounds, punching well above their weight class for the skeptics. What’s even more shocking is that they are still playing shows – now with a median age of mid-seventies – to audiences that included children of the Steel Wheels audience and grandchildren of their original fanbase.houstonpress.com
