The concert industry clearly wants to get back to work, as a flurry of announcements on Friday proved. But what those announcements also proved is that getting back to work will require a leap of faith by all involved, most prominently, the government. Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, speaking during an earnings call and citing conversations with state governors, said that “a clear outline to a 75% to 100%” capacity for outdoor US events in 2021 was looking likely to be green-lit.” “We are seeing… what we’ve been talking about: [fans] are excited to get back to the show as soon as we get the green lights in these markets to open up,” he added.

Amidst news of the release of the "Snyder Cut", and characters from Fox's X-Men movies showing up in MCU's WandaVision , a startling bit of news in the comic book movie community slipped quietly under the radar recently.

Oscar's younger than me, and I like the way … [Read more...] about Why Ethan Hawke Said Yes to Being the Villain in Marvel’s Moon Knight Disney+ Series
The late Nina Simone ’s younger brother, Sam Waymon, who played in her band for years, joined our Rolling Stone Music Now podcast for a uniquely intimate look at his legendary sister’s life and music. In a discussion with host Brian Hiatt and David Browne (who wrote about Simone’s enduring influence ), Waymon discussed Simone’s civil rights activism, her famous performance three days after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the development of her genre-blurring style, her difficult later years, and much more. “Nina didn’t trust many people,” he said, discussing what it was like to back her in concert. “You don’t mess with her music.
