Salt Lake City, UT – April 2, 2018 – Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons today
announced the second annual LOVELOUD Festival (http://loveloudfest.com) designed to
ignite the vital conversation about what it means to unconditionally love, understand,
accept, and support LGBTQ+ youth in our communities. The 2018 LOVELOUD Festival
will be powered by AT&T.

AT&T supports various initiatives that promote safety and inclusion for LGBTQ youth, including The Trevor Project’s suicide prevention and crisis intervention service. Together, through music and an inspiring message, LOVELOUD and AT&T can share our vision of a future where LGBTQ youth are connected to love and acceptance.

LGBTQ+ teen suicide, often caused by a lack of communication or an absence of
acceptance, is one of the most troubling issues in the community. The numbers are
• Suicide is the second leading cause of death in the US for youth (teenagers) according to
the Center for Disease Control.
• LGBTQ+ youth that come from a home or community where they are not accepted are
eight times more likely to commit suicide.

“We at LOVELOUD are determined to help create a more loving and accepting environment for them, while also hoping to raise more than $1 million dollars for local and national LGBTQ+ charities” said founder and Imagine Dragons front-man Dan Reynolds. “We look forward to a day dedicated to celebrating their diversity while listening to great music and inspiring speakers.”

LOVELOUD Festival will take place Saturday, July 28, 2018 in Salt Lake City, UT at the
Eccles Stadium and feature performances by Grammy® Award-winning artists Imagine
Dragons, Zedd and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda along with Grace Vanderwaal, Neon
Trees’ Tyler Glenn and A.W. Stand-up comedian, actor and writer Cameron Esposito will also perform and emcee the day’s festivities. More performers and speakers will be
announced in the coming weeks.

LOVELOUD tickets will go on sale Friday, April 6 at 10AM MST. Festival goers can
purchase tickets HERE. Doors open for the LOVELOUD Festival at 2pm and the music
begins at 3:30pm. The festival will feature food, beverages and a number of other
activities for fans of all ages and interests. The LOVELOUD Foundation will donate
proceeds from this year’s event to benefit LGBTQ+ organizations including Encircle, the Tegan and Sara Foundation and the Trevor Project.

“LOVELOUD’s inspiring goal is to raise $1 million dollars for LGBTQ+ organizations in
one day, and we know that this amazing program of music and speakers will entertain,
educate and inspire everyone who comes out in support on July 28th," said Tegan and Sara. “We started the Tegan and Sara Foundation to bring resources and attention to
issues affecting the LGBTQ community, and we are proud to work with the LOVELOUD
team to amplify their urgent message of acceptance and unconditional love.”

As part of this quest, Dan Reynold’s created a documentary centered around
LOVELOUD, called Believer. The film received runner up for the “Festival Favorite Award” at Sundance Film Festival 2018 and will premiere on HBO in June.

LOVELOUD’s inaugural festival bowed August 26, 2017 in Orem, UT at Brent Brown
Ballpark. The event drew 17,000 concertgoers and featured live music from Imagine
Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella, Nicholas Petricca of Walk the Moon (Acoustic), Joshua
James, and Aja Volkman. In 2017, LOVELOUD Foundation lent its support to various
charities such as Encircle and Stand4Kind, as well as national charities, The Trevor
Project and GLAAD.

The LOVELOUD Foundation is a catalyst to bring communities and families together to
help ignite the vital conversation about what it means to unconditionally love our LGBTQ+youth. LOVELOUD offers hope to young people, letting them know they’re not alone and encouraging acceptance in the home and community. It all begins with talking about, sharing and showing the realities of what LGBTQ+ teens face daily. The LOVELOUD Foundation is a 501c3.

AT&T’s commitment to equality and inclusion for the LGBTQ community began in 1975,
when the company became one of the first American corporations to adopt a policy
prohibiting discrimination against employees based on sexual orientation. AT&T also has a long-standing commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace. LEAGUE at AT&T
(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies Employee Organizations of AT&T) is one of the oldest LGBTQ Employee Resource Groups (ERG) in the nation. In 1998, AT&T
adopted one of the first domestic partner benefits programs for LGBTQ employees. In
2006, AT&T was one of the first U.S. corporations to offer transgender-inclusive health
care benefits. At AT&T, diversity and inclusion will always be top priorities.

STOMP, the international percussion sensation, to play limited engagement at the Fox Theatre on Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7

STOMP, the international percussion sensation, makes its Atlanta premiere at the Fox Theatre on Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7. From its beginnings as a street performance in the U.K., STOMP has grown into an international sensation over the past 20 years, having performed in more than 50 countries and in front of more than 24 million people.

Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP continues its phenomenal run with four global productions: the ongoing sell-out production at New York’s Orpheum Theatre; a permanent London company; and North American and European tours. Throughout its life, the show has continued to change by creating new material; this year, it will incorporate two new pieces. It is safe to say you will never again look at supermarket carts  or plumbing fixtures the same way… or paint cans, or kitchen sinks or…

Tickets start at $34 and are available by visiting FoxTheatre.org/STOMP, by calling 1-855-285-8499 or by visiting the Fox Theatre Box Office (660 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308). Group orders of 10 or more may be placed by calling 404-881-2000. Premium Ticket Packages, which include a prime seat location, a commemorative souvenir program and an exclusive merchandise item, are also available.

STOMP will play at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre April 6-7, 2018. The performance schedule is Friday, April 6 at 8 p.m.; and Saturday, April 7 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

STOMP, an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards and sell-out engagements, is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London’s Tony Award), a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience and a Special Citation from Best Plays.

In addition to the stage shows, STOMP has been an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards, an Academy Award nomination, four Emmy nominations and one Emmy Award for their acclaimed HBO special Stomp Out Loud, noteworthy TV appearances including The London 2012 Olympic Games Closing CeremonyThe Academy Awards (produced by Quincy Jones), Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and a series of award-winning international commercials.

The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-founder/director Luke Cresswell. A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression: both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band of body percussionists. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

Synchronized stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra; eight Zippo lighters flip open and closed to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion. STOMP uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – dustbins, tea chests, radiator hoses, boots, hub caps – to fill the stage with a compelling and unique act that is often imitated but never duplicated.

Critics and audiences have raved: “STOMP is as crisp and exuberant as if it had opened yesterday,” says The New York Times. The San Francisco Chronicle declares “STOMP has a beat that just won’t quit!” The Los Angeles Times exclaims: “Electrifying! Triumphs in the infinite variety of the human experience.” “A phenomenal show! Bashing, crashing, smashing, swishing, banging and kicking – a joyous invention!” says the Chicago Tribune.

Tickets are available by calling 1-855-285-8499 or by visiting FoxTheatre.org/STOMP.

Chris Rock Announces Imminent New Stand-Up Special

‘Chris Rock: Tamborine’ arrives on Netflix Valentine’s Day

Written By | Elias Leight

Netflix continues its aggressive push into comedy by teaming up with Chris Rock for his first stand-up special in a decade. Chris Rock: Tamborine premieres on the streaming platform on Valentine’s Day.

Netflix posted a brief, vague teaser – no shots of the comedian, but lots of tambourines – for the special earlier this month. The comedian announced the details for Chris Rock: Tamborine on Tuesday. The special was filmed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City and directed by Bo Burnham.

Rock’s deal with Netflix was first revealed in 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service won a multi-network bidding war by paying Rock $40 million for two specials. “Chris Rock is a beloved actor and director, and his remarkable stand-up makes him comic royalty,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos in a statement. “There is no one like him.”

In 2017, Rock embarked on his first stand-up tour in nine years. “Haven’t done it in awhile,” the comedian acknowledged when he announced the run. “Been a little busy, you know, writing Pootie Tang 3 and everything.” He was being somewhat modest. During his time away from stand-up, Rock continued to star in movies (including Top Five, which he wrote and directed), hosted the Oscars and earned an Emmy nomination for directing Amy Schumer’s HBO special Live at the Apollo.

CNN Digital Presents “American Woman with Brooke Baldwin”

New digital series with episodes airing on CNN Newsroom launching today 

American Woman, an eight-part digital video series hosted by CNN Newsroom (2-4pm) anchor Brooke Baldwin, launched today featuring interviews with eight accomplished women who have shattered ceilings across their respective industries.

2017 was a defining year for the American woman. From the Women’s March on Washington to the #MeToo moment, a movement has begun. In this series, Baldwin explores the lives, careers, personal setbacks and all the hurdles these trailblazing women surmounted to accomplish their dreams and pave a path for the next generation, while also exploring her own journey in a personal op-ed.

The series features:
