Bob Weir, Patti Smith, & Flea To Headline San Francisco’s ‘Pathway To Paris’ Benefit Concert

first_imgPathway To Paris is a concert that coincides with the Global Climate Action Summit, bringing together high-profile musicians, artists, activists, politicians, and other public figures to advocate for cities to work to address climate change. The event takes its name from the Paris Agreement, a global agreement secured by the U.N. that encourage countries to mitigate their greenhouse-gas emissions, and seeks to encourage cities to meet and exceed the Paris Agreement’s climate targets.On September 14th, the fourth-annual Pathway To Paris concert will be held at San Francisco’s Masonic. Heading the lineup is Patti Smith, the famed singer-songwriter and poet whose daughter, Jesse Parris Smith, co-founded the event with Rebecca Foon (both of whom will also appear during the show). Also headlining is Bob Weir, the famed Grateful Dead guitarist, and Flea, bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Other musicians on the bill include Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Eric Burdon, formerly of War and The Animals, Tibetan musician and activist Tenzin Choegyla, and French pop-soul singer Imany.In addition to the musical performances, Icelandic visual artist Olafur Eliasson has created a special interactive piece for Pathway to Paris, which will engage the audience in a collaborative work of art. As noted in a press release, “Artist Olafur Eliasson will turn the whole audience into artists by creating an interactive collective artwork. Eliasson leads a choreography that motions its audience to hold up a Little Sun solar lantern. The result is a visually striking solar-powered ‘sunrise’ which raises awareness for climate action and energy equality.”As noted by Jesse Paris Smith,In the world of music, the best way to improve is through collaboration. This is the same with the critical issue of climate change. We must join together to make this the most ambitious collaboration of our century. We will not be able to implement crucial and challenging solutions to climate change, plastic pollution, and all urgent environmental problems as long as we stand divided. Inseparable from the issue of climate change is the need for world peace, global communication, and an international collaboration unmatched by any event in human history.All proceeds from the fourth-annual Pathway to Paris concert will be donated to 350.org, Pathway to Paris, and the United Nations Development Programme. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 13th, at 10 a.m. (PT) via LiveNation.com, with tickets also available via all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone.

Old Firm derby win excites Gerrard as Rangers end Celtic Park hoodoo

first_imgHowever, Gerrard believes his side’s performance in that match laid the foundations to get their reward this time round.“Celtic took a trophy away from us, but we’ve come away with huge belief from that game,” added Gerrard.“That’s why we’ve come here, took the game to Celtic and got a lot of joy from it.”After a bright start from the visitors, it was Celtic who were gifted a huge chance to take the lead just after the half hour mark when Katic was penalised for holding Christopher Jullien from a corner.Christie struck his penalty low and hard but Alan McGregor got down to his left to turn the ball to safety.Just as the hosts were beginning to take control, Rangers scored their first goal against their bitter rivals in three games this season when Kent smashed Borna Barisic’s low cross in off the post.The lead lasted just six minutes, though, as luck shined on Celtic when Callum McGregor’s shot deflected in off the arm of Edouard and was not spotted by referee Kevin Clancy.Alfredo Morelos has scored 28 goals this season but had another Old Firm derby to forget as the Colombian has still not netted in 12 meetings against Celtic and was sent-off for the seventh time in two seasons deep into stoppage time.Morelos had a huge chance to restore Rangers’ lead early in the second half but spooned over after a brilliant low cross from Kent left the goal at his mercy.Rangers had to wait just six minutes longer to get back in front as they peppered the Celtic goal with a series of set-pieces and the pressure paid off when Katic powered home a Barisic corner.“Big moments decide big games and you cannot give a guy a free header in our box,” said Celtic manager Neil Lennon. Loading… Steven Gerrard hailed Rangers’ 2-1 win at Celtic as the best feeling of his managerial career so far as the blue side of Glasgow won an Old Firm clash on enemy soil for the first time since 2010. Ryan Kent and Nikola Katic struck either side of Odsonne Edouard’s controversial equaliser to take control of the Scottish Premiership title race.Advertisement Read Also: Arsenal vs Chelsea: Late Leno error deny Arteta first win as Gunners bossMorelos saw red for the second time in three games with virtually the last action of the game as he was shown a second yellow card for diving inside the area.However, Rangers comfortably saw out the final stages to snap Celtic’s 11-game winning streak in the league and set up a thrilling title race when the action resumes in the new year after a three-week winter break.“I think they need a rest. We were not at our best today,” added Lennon.“They’ve got to get really hungry now. We are not prepared to give up anything and we won’t.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Gerrard’s men still trail Celtic by two points, but have a game in hand on the Scottish champions as they aim to end a run of eight straight league titles for the green-and-white half of Glasgow. “It feels the best right now,” said the former Liverpool captain on whether this was his biggest win since taking charge 18 months ago.“It’s emotional. You can see in my reaction after the game. It’s a big moment for the team, for the club, it’s been through too much pain here.”Celtic were left to rue Ryan Christie’s penalty miss with the score at 0-0 as they suffered a first home league defeat since May 2018.Rangers dominated the League Cup final between the sides earlier this month, but a host of missed chances and a stunning goalkeeping performance from Fraser Forster won 10-man Celtic the trophy.
