The Ford Center Takeover!

Written By | Ashley Murphy – Beyond the Line Studio

Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown along with Starset and Bad Wolves took over the Ford Center in Evansville Indiana Thursday night.  The show started out with Bad Wolves, a band from California currently climbing the charts with their cover of The Cranberries “Zombie.”  Starset followed with their sci-fi influenced set including songs “Ricochet” from their new Album Vessels as well as “My Demons,” and “Monster” from their album Transmissions.  During “Monster”, they literally blew the house by taking out the power of the whole arena, but crews worked quickly and the show reignited.

Shinedown fired up the stage next with a lineup of many of their past hits including “Bully,” “Second Chance,” “Cut the Cord,” as well as a few songs from their new album Attention Attention.  During the song “State of My Head,” lead singer Brent Smith asked the audience to take out their cell phones and turn on their flashlights.  The arena lit up like stars in the sky.  It was absolutely breath taking.

Five Finger Death Punch finished the lineup with their high energy set including “Bad Company,” “The Bleeding,” and “Gone Away.”  At one point in the show, band front man Ivan Moody asked several kids from the audience to join him onstage while he sang “Remember Everything.”  Watching the excitement on their faces was so amazing to see.  They will always remember Five Finger Death Punch and Ivan Moody for this experience.

STAND UP COMEDIAN, ACTOR AND WRITER CAMERON ESPOSITO TO PERFORM AND EMCEE LOVELOUD FESTIVAL

LOVELOUD TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, APRIL 6TH AT 10AM MST AT SMITHSTIX.COM

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT LOCAL AND NATIONAL LGBTQ+ CHARITIES INCLUDING
ENCIRCLE, TREVOR PROJECT, TEGAN AND SARA FOUNDATION & MORE

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
staggering:
• 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.

Christina Aguilera on The Voice: ‘It’s not about music, but good TV’

Christina Aguilera unleashed a brand new song and video yesterday, ‘Accelerate‘ featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz

The ‘Beautiful‘ star also announced that her upcoming album, ‘Liberation‘ will be out in June.

One thing she won’t be announcing is a return to ‘The Voice‘.

Speaking to Billboard, the ‘Burlesque’ star said: “It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in season one.

“You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.

“I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]. Especially as a female: You can’t wear this, can’t say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet.”

Instead she’s keen to return to performing in front of her fans. The 37-year-old said: “When I’m onstage, there’s not a bigger high, when I’m in connection with my voice and my heart and my soul.

“But at the end, I want to wipe it all off, get in my sweatpants, make silly noises with my kids and have someone comfort and cuddle me.”

Liberation is out June 15. Accelerate feat. Ty Dolla $ign & 2 Chainz along with the stunning music video, directed by Zoey Grossman is out now (watch below).

Last week Aguilera took part in The Late Late Show with James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ (watch below).

Normani’s debut solo single with Khalid ‘Love Lies’ surpasses 200M streams on Spotify

Khalid and Normani‘s ‘Love Lies‘ has amazingly surpassed 200 million streams on Spotify.

‘Love Lies’ was released commercially for digital download through RCA Records this year on February 14 as the second single from the movie soundtrack for Love, Simon.

It is Normani’s debut solo single. It entered at number 43 on the Bilboard Hot 100, opening with 22,000 downloads and 11.7 million streams in its first week. This tied Fifth Harmony with Destiny’s ChildThe Go-Go‘s and Labelle for the most members (three) from an all-female group to chart solo on the Hot 100, with Normani being the third.

It also scored the highest first-week position for a debut single by a girl group member.

The duo gave a sultry performance of the single on ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon‘ last month on April 10 (see below).

Revealing Miley Cyrus’ Collection with Converse

“No age, no gender, no sex — I wanted everyone to feel included.”

When it comes to her debut collection, Converse x Miley Cyrus, this is exactly how Miley Cyrus says she wants her fans to feel. A true reflection of her personal style and influences, Miley tapped into her persona as a performer as well as her eclectic day-to-day style to create a full lifestyle collection.

As a woman who has always been open to all possibilities, Miley partnered with Converse to reflect that feeling of self-empowerment.

“Converse has no boundaries. It’s outspoken. I’ve always identified with Converse because the brand appeals to and represents so many different cultures and walks of life. And they’re accessible,” she says of her reason for teaming up with the brand. The collection’s look book features images that capture the energetic, bold and inclusive nature of Miley and some of her biggest fans (representing across gender, orientation and background) shot by legendary fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth.

“I definitely had my fans in mind and in my heart when I was creating,” she says. “I put what they love about me and what I love about them into the design.” Whether sparkling with the Chuck Taylor All Star Glitter or looking to channel Miley’s performance and country roots in the Bandana, individuals can piece together looks for any mood or style.

Converse x Miley Cyrus will be available May 2 on converse.com and at select retailers.
