Radiohead Announces 2018 S. America Tour, Will Not Attend Rock Hall Of Fame Induction

first_imgRadiohead just announced a rare tour in Latin America, marking their first return since 2009. The English rock band will perform six dates, kicking off in Santiago, Chile on April 11, with stops in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lima, Peru, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo, Brazil, and Bogotá, Colombia through the end of the month. All of the shows beyond the opener will be part of a traveling festival, called Soundhearts. The opening Chile show is part of the SUE Festival, where Radiohead will play alongside Flying Lotus and Junun, guitarist Jonny Greenwood‘s side-project.Of these new dates, on April 14th, the band will be performing in Buenos Aires, which also happens to be the same day as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio. Earlier this fall, Radiohead was nominated for induction into the Hall of Fame, marking the band’s first year of eligibility. A band representative confirmed that “they’re not attending” the ceremony to Consequence of Sound.However, this move is not all that unexpected. Both Jonny Greenwood and Ed O’Brien have gone on the record that they’re uninterested in the award. In an interview with Rolling Stone this year, when asked about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Jonny Greenwood noted, “I don’t care,” causing Ed O’Brien to add, “I don’t want to be rude about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because for a lot of people it means something, but culturally I don’t understand it. I think it might be a quintessential American thing.”For the most part, members of Radiohead will use 2018 to focus on their individual projects and only play a number of select shows together. Beyond the six dates in South America, there are currently no other Radiohead shows on the band’s calendar. Check out all pre-sale and on-sale information on W.A.S.T.E.’s website.Radiohead 2018 Tour Dates:04/11 – Santiago, CL @ Estadio Nacional (SUE Festival)04/14 – Buenos Aires, AR @ Tecnopolis (Soundhearts Festival)04/17 – Lima, PR @ Estadio Nacional (Soundhearts Festival)04/20 – Rio de Janerio, BR @ Parque Olimpico (Soundhearts Festival)04/22 – São Paulo, BR @ Allianz Parque (Soundhearts Festival)04/25 – Bogota, CO @ Parque 222 (Soundhearts Festival)last_img read more

Women’s water polo dominates weekend tournament

first_imgTwelve Trojans scored in the first game of the doubleheader as USC, which holds a record of 8-0, beat Concordia uncontested 21-0. It was a well-rounded attack: Freshman 2-meter Mireia Guiral led the team with 4 points, while freshmen utility Bayley Weber, 2-meter Tilly Kearns, freshman driver Alejandra Aznar, sophomore driver Sabrina Garabet and junior utility Maud Megens all finished the game with multiple goals. “As a goalie, it’s really important to run the defense as best as I can because I can see things as they go on from a better angle [than the other players] can, so I make myself talk and be vocal the whole time so that I’m occupied,” Longan said. Thirteen Trojans scored in the victory, led by Anzar with 4 points. Sophomore driver Verica Bakoc, Hauschild, Megens, Guiral, freshman driver Grace Tehaney and sophomore driver Kari Jensen also scored multiple times. Junior driver Elise Stein, Weber, Mammolito, McIntosh, Rozolis-Hill and Kearns notched points as well. Junior driver Denise Mammolito, sophomore driver Paige Hauschild, junior driver Kelsey McIntosh, freshman 2-meter Julia Rozolis-Hill, freshman utility Claire Haas and freshman driver Sophia Lucas all contributed points as well. The Trojans continued their strong momentum on both offense and defense in the second game of the day, securing a 23-0 victory over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. “There were a few passes that we made that weren’t great, and at times we forced things, but for the most part, I think that we made the right decisions and executed,” she said. USC’s 21-0 rout over Concordia Saturday marked senior goalie Amanda Longan’s fourth career shutout. (Emily Smith/Daily Trojan) Although the Trojans dominated in both games, Longan said that they can always find ways to improve their performance. “I think something for us that we did better that we hadn’t in previous games is we communicated more, which is big especially for the younger players to use their voices,” Longan said. “That way, when [Coach Vavic] would call something, we were all on the same page, so everything functioned like a system should.” The No. 1 USC women’s water polo team maintained its undefeated streak at the CBU Mini Invitational in Riverside on Saturday with two shutout victories against Concordia University and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Mammolito said the team could bring more attention to its decision-making during games. “I think adjusting to switch ups so when we call something, and then the other team counters that with something a little trickier [could be improved],” she said. “Making that adjustment faster is something we could do better.” USC was successful at implementing the defenses they have been working on in practice and also pushing the counter attack and finishing high opportunity shots, according to Mammolito. Junior goalie Holly Parker manned the net with five saves, securing her first career shutout. Longan said communication was also key in the two victories on Saturday. Senior goalie Amanda Longan anchored the Trojan defense with nine saves. The game marked Longan’s fourth career shutout. The Trojans stay in home waters this week in an exhibition game to take on the Chinese national team, which some members of the USC women’s team have trained with in the past. The game will be played on Thursday at 5 p.m. at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center.last_img read more

Arkwright: England Taking Nigeria Friendly ‘Very Serious’

first_imgDemola OjoAs the build up towards the prestigious international friendly between Nigeria and England at Wembley Stadium gathers steam, principal actors in both countries are working towards an exciting occasion with the recent visit of Nigeria Football Federation stalwarts to the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright.The Super Eagles and the Three Lions will lock horns on Saturday, June 2, in what will be the Eagles’ penultimate friendly match before flying to the World Cup finals in Russia. NFF President Amaju Melvin Pinnick and the 2nd Vice President, Shehu Dikko, met with the envoy in Abuja where they were informed that the match would be used as an opportunity to organize a number of events both in the United Kingdom and Nigeria.Officially, both countries have clashed only twice previously at senior level: one competitive match and one friendly. The friendly was on 16th November 1994, when the Three Lions pipped the Eagles 1-0 at old Wembley Stadium thanks to a first half header by David Platt.The second time was a group phase tie at the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals in Korea/Japan, where both teams ended it 0-0 at the Nagai Stadium in Osaka.“Let me assure you that England is taking this match very serious. It is more than just a game; it is a big preparatory game towards the FIFA World Cup. More than that, the historical ties between our two countries are there to be considered, so it will also serve to strengthen and enhance relations and good collaboration between our countries,” said Arkwright.Pinnick told Arkwright that the Nigerian High Commission in the United Kingdom is also involved in efforts to ensure the match is a huge success, coming less than two weeks before the opening match of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.“We appreciate the excellent cordial relations between our two countries and that is one of the reasons this is more than just a match. It is coming up only two weeks before Nigeria’s first match at the FIFA World Cup, and 16 days before England’s first match in Russia.“Ours are two countries that have so much in common. We believe this match will go a long way in strengthening England-Nigeria relations in several areas.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
