first_imgOn Saturday night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead closed out their two-night run at Boston’s House Of Blues, marking the group’s final performances of 2017. Characteristic of the innovative Grateful Dead-inspired act, the final Boston show saw the group in proper form, offering up an energized mix of Dead tunes and other choice covers along with countless teases of other artists ranging across Michael Jackson (“Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough”), Herbie Hancock (“Tell Me A Bedtime Story”), Steve Miller (“Fly Like An Eagle”), Rod Stewart (“Do You Think I’m Sexy”), Suzanne Vega (“Tom’s Diner”), John Coltrane (“Love Supreme”), Bobby Brown (“My Prerogative”), and more.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Full Audio Of LOCKN’ Set Featuring Bob Weir [Stream]Obviously a huge night for the band considering its placement as the group’s last shows of the year, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead managed to mix in a number of special songs into the setlist among tunes that more frequently see rotation during performances. After a show-opening cover of Chuck Berry’s “Promised Land”, the group hit a rousing rendition of “Shakedown Street” ahead of a jam built around John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”. During this first set, the band also performed Jerry Garcia’s “Cats Under The Stars” for the third time ever and allowed Marco Benevento and Dave Dreiwitz to team up for an extended duo section during “Viola Lee’s Blues”.During the second set of the night, the band offered up the majority of its high-profile and sometimes hilarious teases. From the set-opening slinky rendition of “Feel Like A Stranger”, the band worked in tastes of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and Suzanne Vega’s “Tom Diner” as well as a more traditional “Slipknot!” tease. From there, the band was off and sprinting toward the finish, with the second set also seeing a “flipped” version of “Eyes of the World”—the band started with the song’s ’73 ending played in the key of the song before it, “Dancing In The Streets”—as well as a rendition of “Standing On The Moon”, marking the first time the band has the 1989 Grateful Dead tune since October 2nd, 2015 at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City.“Viola Lee Blues” > “Cats Under The Stars”[Video: Brosef Wilson]“Standing On The Moon” > “Truckin’”[Video: monihampton]“Feel Like A Stranger”[Video: Jamey Klein]“Franklin’s Tower”[Video: Jamey Klein]You can check out the setlist for yourself below, plus stay tuned for announcements about Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s highly anticipated performances in 2018!Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | House Of Blues | Boston, MA | 12/9/2017Set One: Promised Land > Shakedown Street @ -> Jam # -> The Other One $ > Viola Lee Blues % > Cats Under The Stars ^, One More Saturday NightSet Two: Feel Like A Stranger & -> Franklin’s Tower > Dancing In The Streets * > Eyes Of The World + -> Jam @@ -> Let It Grow ## > Standing On The Moon $$> Truckin’ -> Music Never Stopped Jam -> Truckin’ Reprise -> Born Cross Eyed JamEncore: GDTRFB %% > WBYGN (Instrumental)@ – Unfinished# – With a “Love Supreme” (John Coltrane) Tease (TH or SM)$ – With a Playin Tease (Band)% – With a Throwin Stones Tease (Band), a China Cat Tease (TH), a DD/MB Duo Jam, with TH on Drums, & a “Shortnin’ Bread” (James Whitcomb Riley) Tease (MB)^ – With a “Walk Like An Egyptian” (The Bangles) tease (MB), a China Cat Tease (SM), a “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” (Michael Jackson) Tease (SM) & a “St. Thomas” (Sonny Rollins) Tease (SM)& – With an Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin) Tease, a “Tom’s Diner” (Suzanne Vega) Tease (SM) and a Slipknot!

Ighalo to dedicate goals to late sister

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Odion Ighalo has vowed to dedicate every Manchester United goal he scores during his loan spell to his sister, who tragically passed away in December. The Nigeria international moved to Old Trafford from Shanghai Shenhua on a short-term deal until the end of the season to ease the injury burden at the club. But despite securing his “dream” move to the club he supported as a boy, Ighalo is still reeling from the tragic loss of his sister, Mary Atole, who died two months ago. The 30-year-old has her name etched on his boots and will wear a white t-shirt underneath his United top with her name written when the club visits Stamford Bridge on Monday night to take on Chelsea. He spoke to The Sun about his pain, saying: “I feel very emotional because it has not really struck me that my sister is gone forever and I am never going to see her again. “Sometimes when I am alone and I just remember her, I have one sharp pain in my heart. “My twin sister, Akhere, will call me, crying, saying she misses her and, sometimes when I am alone, I cry too. “It is a very painful loss but I am trying to be strong as a man.” Mary Atole collapsed in her home in Canada on the morning of December 12, 2019 while getting her children ready for school. She was 43 when she died. Ighalo added: “It was a very painful moment. “She just collapsed and died before the kids could even call for an ambulance. “When the medics arrived, they tried to revive her but she was already gone.” His heartache is shared by Akhere, elder sister Beatrice, brothers Austin and Moses and mother Martina. Ighalo said: “Although she was my older sister, Mary was like a mother to all of us. “Even when I was young she would look after me. “She tried to make everybody happy, make sure everyone was okay.”Tags: Manchester UnitedMary AtoleOdion IghaloOld TraffordShanghai Shenhualast_img read more
