Dead & Company Welcome Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon At Alpine Valley Closer [Videos/Photos]


first_imgLoad remaining images On Saturday night, Dead & Company concluded their two-night run at the legendary Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin. As per tradition in a multi-night run, the Grateful Dead-inspired band flexed their creativity by expanding upon a wicked first night and adding new flavors for round two. Fifteen shows into the summer tour and Dead & Company welcomed their first guest to the stage on Saturday night, vocalist/guitarist Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, to close the first set.The first set opened with an appropriate “The Music Never Stopped”, led by Grateful Dead original Bob Weir and newfound Dead Head John Mayer, kicking off night two in total celebration mode. A cover of Rob Wasserman‘s “Easy Answers” came next, marking the third performance of this tour and the fourth ever.The Music Never StoppedJohn Mayer and Bob Weir continued to swap vocals between “Alabama Getaway”, “Big River”, and “Jack Straw” before welcoming their guest, Justin Vernon, marking the first of the tour. The Eau Claire native contributed his sultry vocals and silky guitar pickings to “Black Muddy River”, “Friend of the Devil”, and “Bird Song” to close the first set. Vernon is most well known for his signature style of singing in his own indie folk band Bon Iver. Most recently, Vernon announced a new band with Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, who released a Grateful Dead tribute album in 2016, Day of the Dead, and even recorded and toured with Bob Weir as part of his Campfire Band in 2017. On Day of the Dead, Vernon’s first band DeYarmond Edison backed Bruce Hornsby on a studio version of “Black Muddy River”, and the version was revived at Vernon’s own Eaux Claires Music Festival in 2016. While the sit-in might have felt random to longtime Grateful Dead fans, it’s an interesting step forward in the evolution of the band’s live repertoire.“Bird Song” with Justin Vernon[Video: Milwaukee Live]After the scheduled break, Dead & Company returned to the moonlit stage for a rocking second set. Bob Weir, John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti harmoniously sung The Band‘s “The Weight” to open the second set, marking the song’s third performance of the tour and the sixth ever. The high notes continued with “Shakedown Street”, “Althea”, and a “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider” of the ages, turning heads of fans everywhere calling it the “set of the tour”. The percussionists kept the momentum for a far-out “Drums / Space” portion of the evening before the rest of the band returned to the stage.The WeightChina Cat > I Know You Rider[Video: Still Dead]The tour’s second and sixth ever “All Along The Watchtower” came next, as Bob Weir took lead on the Bob Dylan classic. Weir continued with the lead vocal duty to close the show with “Standing on the Moon” and “Sugar Magnolia”. During the latter, Weir’s microphone stopped working and he gave the stand a powerful smack to the ground. After his technician came to revive the microphone stand, Weir jokingly gave it a “test” before taking the first verse of the song. Dead & Company encored with “One More Saturday Night” to close their show.[Video: Uberdemon76]Dead & Company have a bit of a break before they head to George, Washington for a night at the Gorge Amphitheatre on June 29th, before they continue their way throughout the Midwest.

Australia expects to receive AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine within months


first_imgAstraZeneca’s candidate, AZD1222, is viewed as a frontrunner in a global race to deliver an effective vaccine to combat the virus.Australia had announced in August that it planned to buy AZD1222, along with an agreement of intent from CSL to manufacture it. That plan was thrown into some doubt when CSL announced shortly afterward that it would prioritize the manufacture of its own vaccine.Morrison’s announcement on Monday that Australia would also purchase the CSL drug if trials proved successful appeared to be the culmination of a deal to get both vaccines across the line.The CSL vaccine is due to begin second stage clinical trials in late 2020, meaning the earliest it could hit the market would be mid-2021. “By securing the production and supply agreements, Australians will be among the first in the world to receive a safe and effective vaccine, should it pass late stage testing,” Morrison said in an emailed statement.Should both vaccines pass clinical trials, Australia will spend A$1.7 billion ($1.24 billion) for a total of nearly 85 million doses, Morrison said.The agreement came as Australia’s Victoria state said 41 cases of COVID-19 have been detected in the past 24 hours, the lowest single-day rise since June 26.Australia’s second most populous state has been the epicentre of a second wave, and now accounts for about 75% of the country’s 26,320 cases and 90% of its 762 deaths.The southeastern state on Sunday extended a hard lockdown in its capital Melbourne until Sept. 28 as the daily infection rates had declined more slowly than hoped.Job lossesThe extension of the lockdown in Melbourne is expected to fuel further job losses. The national Treasury Department said the original six-week lockdown had already cost Victoria around 250,000 jobs, or half the total recorded by the state since the pandemic began.Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg on Monday announced Australia would extend its temporary insolvency and bankruptcy protection rules until the end of this year, barring creditors cannot issue bankruptcy notices to businesses for debts below A$20,000. Australia expects to receive its first batches of a potential COVID-19 vaccine in January, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Monday, as the number of new daily infections in the country’s virus hotspot fell to a 10-week low.Morrison said his government has struck a deal with CSL Ltd to manufacture two vaccines – one developed by rival AstraZeneca and Oxford University, and another developed in CSL’s own labs with the University of Queensland.Morrison said Australia will in January and February 2021 receive 3.8 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is currently undergoing late-stage clinical trials in Britain, Brazil and South Africa, in January and February last year.center_img Topics :last_img read more
