Widespread Panic Closes Out Milwaukee Run With Third Consecutive Black Sabbath Bust Out

first_imgLoad remaining images Never miss a Sunday show. That’s what fans who caught Widespread Panic’s third and final show at the Riverside Theatre in Milwaukee, WI were saying, wrapped up in the glory of the band’s rocking music.The first set alone was almost 20 minutes longer than the Friday or Saturday first sets, a good sign for what was to come. Singer and guitarist John Bell noted the anniversary of the first time the band played the Riverside, and then they immediately went into “Send Your Mind.” The set didn’t get rowdy, however, until they started “Disco.” The instrumental song got everyone in the crowd moving.“Greta” was next. This song always gets love in Milwaukee, and one only has to go back and listen to the Saturday 2014 version to see how much the fans love it. Last night’s version proved no different, and it’s possible the crowd got even more raucous last night than in 2014. Once keyboardist JoJo Hermann began seeing an extra chorus of “There’s a pack of rabid dogs…” the place erupted into a frenzy. It was amazing. “Stop/Go” featured some nice Fire on the Mountain teases, and “Blackout Blues” ended the set with an exclamation.They opened the second set with “Can’t Get High,” a problem that nobody attending the show seemed to be having. Panic slowed things down a bit with “Don’t Be Denied.” JB’s voice was crooning to the crowd, and everyone seemed mesmerized by it. When he sang the lyric, “We started a band…” an image of the WSP note eater logo flashed on the LED screens, and the crowd again erupted in jubilation and appreciation. “Rock” was particularly grungy and had that defining hard-edged Panic sound. After the drums segment, “Blue Indian” was standard awesome and a rocking “North” closed out the set.“Ain’t Life Grand” was the encore, and it was a sentiment to which both band and crowd could facilely relate at that moment. As with the two previous nights, the encore was a treat, and this Sunday show provided more of the same. This time they played Black Sabbath’s “Children of the Grave” and believe it or not this tune is even rarer than the other two covers, as “Children” hadn’t been played since 2007. One should note that Panic has been doing Black Sabbath covers from previous Halloween encores, so are they leading up to something for the Halloween show in Broomfield, CO? They have stops in Minneapolis and Ames before making it to the Rocky Mountain state, so we’ll see what other past-Halloween tricks they may have up their sleeve.So now that the 2016 Riverside run is completed, and Panic once again delivered on all three nights, there is only one question that remains: Will they be back next year? Their self-admitted intention to reduce touring in upcoming years suggests that they probably won’t. But maybe, because of the soft spot in their hearts for this great venue in a great city, they will find some time and treat this as the destination event it has become. I’m optimistic they’ll be back.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of PanicStream, as well as a gallery from Ojeda Photography.Setlist: Widespread Panic at Riverside Theatre, Milwaukee, WI – 10/23/16Set 1: Send Your Mind, Last Straw > Christmas Katie > Saint Ex, Disco > Greta > Stop/Go, Goin’ Out West > Blackout Blues (72 mins)Set 2: Can’t Get High, Junior, Don’t Be Denied, Surprise Valley > Rock, Bust It Big > Drums > Cease Fire, Blue Indian, North (88 mins)Encore: Ain’t Life Grand, Children of the GraveNotes: ‘Children of the Grave’ LTP 10/31/07 Asheville (604 shows)last_img read more

Haydock a must for Weld star

first_img Press Association Mustajeeb is likely to have his first run since Royal Ascot in the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on September 5. Trainer Dermot Weld has been waiting for the ground to ease before pitching the four-year-old colt back on the racecourse after he found conditions too lively when fifth to Undrafted in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. “As far as I know, Dermot is still hoping to get him to Haydock,” said Sheikh Hamdan’s racing manager, Angus Gold. center_img “After Ascot we felt he wanted a bit of ease in the ground to show his best, so we’ll just see what the next few days brings us and how he is, but Dermot was happy with him the last time I spoke to him. “Ascot was too quick for him. Dermot originally wanted to go to Deauville for the Maurice de Gheest and then when Sheikh Hamdan said he was going to let Muhaarar go there, Dermot said we’ll wait and have a look at Haydock.” last_img read more

Angels hitters and relievers pick up Tyler Skaggs to get a victory in sweltering Baltimore

first_imgAfter that, he didn’t give up anything else. The bullpen then came in and held the Orioles for the rest of the game. Meanwhile, the Angels hitters eventually capitalized on some mistakes from the Orioles, who are a major-league worst 23-59.The Angels won the game with five runs in the eighth, thanks to a game-tying double by Albert Pujols surrounded by a few Orioles miscues.With one out and the Angels down 2-1, Orioles righty Mychal Givins walked Mike Trout and Justin Upton. Pujols then launched a double off the wall in right-center field, tying the game and sending Upton to third.The Orioles intentionally walked Andrelton Simmons and brought in left-hander Tanner Scott to face left-handed hitting Luis Valbuena. The Angels instead send up righty Chris Young.Young hit a bouncer to third baseman Tim Beckham, who could have easily stepped on the bag and thrown to first to end the inning and preserve the tie. He also could have thrown home and at least prevented the go-ahead run, even if they got only one out.Instead, he stepped on third, hesitated and made a high throw to first base, barely pulling Chris Davis off the bag. Young was safe and the Angels took the lead.Ian Kinsler then beat out a chopper for an infield single, loading the bases again. Scott hit Martín Maldonado with a pitch, forcing in a run. David Fletcher then singled into center, driving in two more.Justin Anderson retired all three hitters in the eighth and Blake Parker worked the ninth to seal the victory.

(AP Photo/Gail Burton)ExpandBALTIMORE — In Tyler Skaggs’ first time back on the mound where he threw his final pitch before Tommy John surgery, he again had to come out of the game early.This time it was nothing that some cold water and air conditioning couldn’t resolve.After pitching five innings in the Angels’ eventual 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, Skaggs told manager Mike Scioscia that he was “exhausted.” Working on a sweltering day, with a first-pitch temperature of 93 degrees, Skaggs said he was spent after 79 pitches.“It was definitely one of the hottest games I’ve thrown in a long time,” Skaggs said. Skaggs had also felt a tinge of cramping his calf when he was trying to cover first in the fifth inning. Skaggs, who earlier this month had his start pushed back because of hamstring tightness, told Scioscia how he felt.“I very rarely say I’m tired or anything, but today it felt like with the conditions we were in, I was pretty gassed,” he said. “I could have gone another one, but there’s no point. I’m glad my team picked me up. The bullpen did a great job today.”The Angels are obviously sensitive to any pitcher suggesting he has any sort of physical problem, because they’ve watched a string of pitchers go down with injuries over the past few years.Skaggs was pitching right here on July 31, 2014, when he complained of forearm tightness that ended up being a torn ulnar collateral ligament and Tommy John surgery.It took him two years to get back to the majors, but he’s now two years clear of any arm problems and pitching the best of his career. He allowed one earned run on Saturday, on three straight hits to begin the game.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
