The Madison Square Garden Company, which owns the Rockettes, said, “The Radio City Rockettes, an original American brand, have performed at Radio City Music Hall since 1932 and, as treasured American icons, have taken part in some of the nation’s most illustrious events such as Super Bowl halftime shows, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parades and presidential inaugurations, including in 2001 and 2005.

Back at the Sony building, the vibe is loose and friendly, as Halford recalls another meeting with folk royalty. In 1977, Judas Priest recorded a revved-up, metallified cover of Joan Baez’s “Diamonds & Rust” (a song, incidentally, about her relationship with Bob Dylan). It quickly became one of the band’s set-list staples, and by 1985 Priest were big enough to play three songs at Live Aid, where he ran into Baez backstage. “I just did some work with MTV that was going live and as Martha Quinn left, I saw Joan Baez coming towards me,” Halford says. “I thought, ‘God, she’s going to complain about “Diamonds & Rust.”‘ I go, ‘Hi, Joan.

Barring Christopher Nolan taking on another epic tentpole franchise like his Dark Knight trilogy, it will likely be difficult for the director to top his opening weekend record, $160.8 million, set by The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. That tally was almost as much as the domestic total for his last film, the 2014 mind-bender Interstellar, which opened with $47.5 million en route to a domestic tally of $188 million, an international total of $487.1 million for a global tally of $675.1 million, from a $175 million budget. While the film performed well, it was down sharply from his last original film, 2010's Inception, which debuted with $62.7 million, en route to a domestic tally of $292.5 million, $532.9 million from foreign markets for a global tally of $825.5 million, from a $160 million budget. … [Read more...] about Will Nolan’s Dunkirk Be a Hit or Miss at the Box Office?
