Dave Matthews Band Covers Prince In A Set Of Classics On Night Two Of The Gorge

first_imgDave Matthews Band returned to The Gorge Amphitheatre last night for the second night of their annual three-night stand at the storied venue. The band has announced that they’ll be taking an extended hiatus following this run, giving the weekend an extra feeling of importance for fans and band alike. There’s no telling when DMB will return to the stage, so this weekend is a huge celebration of the band’s deep catalog. Night one featured fan-favorites like “The Song That Jane Likes”, “Warehouse”, “Dancing Nancies”, and “Grey Street” (among others), and night two featured more of the same, with a funky Prince cover thrown in and another appearance by Brazilian brass legend Carlos Malta.The band opened up with “Squirm”, before really getting the set started with a pair of beloved tracks in “One Sweet World” and “Granny”. The beginning of the set also featured “When the World Ends”, “Funny the Way It Is”, and a standout “Crush” before the band segued into “Bartender” and invited Malta out for his first tune of the evening. “Bartender” was only played one other time in 2016, so the song was truly appreciated by the DMB faithful who trekked out to The Gorge. Malta would join the band on “Cry Freedom”, Dave Matthews solo track “Gravedigger”, and “Jimi Thing” throughout the course of the evening, adding his signature sound to DMB’s well-oiled machine.After “Jimi Thing”, DMB performed a super-funky cover of “Sexy MF” by Prince that really got the crowd moving, before the band brought their set to a close with “Pantala Naga Pampa” > “Rapunzel”. The band returned to the stage for an extended, three-song encore of “Sister”, “Two Step”, and “Halloween” that put a cap on an excellent evening.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of setlist.fm. Dave Matthews Band have one more show at The Gorge tonight before beginning their extended hiatus on Monday. Edit this setlist | More Dave Matthews Band setlistslast_img read more

Italian PM tells EU to ‘show more ambition, unity, courage’

first_imgConte sounded unimpressed in his letter.”Dear Ursula,” he wrote. “I hear ideas [from you] not worthy of Europe.”He told her it was time for the EU “to show more ambition, more unity and more courage”.At issue is billions of euros that Italy wants from the European Union to help fight the novel coronavirus pandemic that has killed nearly 14,000 people in Italy and shattered the country’s economy. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Friday extended his feud about coronavirus money with EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen in the pages of a Roman newspaper.Conte wrote a letter to Italy’s La Repubblica in response to an apology that von der Leyen had published in the same paper on Thursday.”I am sorry,” von der Leyen had told Italians. “The EU is with you now.” Topics :center_img Conte wants the EU to start issuing lots of joint debt — dubbed “coronabonds” — that could let countries such as Italy address the crisis more cheaply.Von der Leyen has sided with Germany and some other northern European countries’ suspicion of pooled risk because it could raise their own borrowing costs at the expense of more indebted countries.Von der Leyen is backing an EU-wide guarantee that could raise 100 billion euros ($108 billion) to aid strained national unemployment schemes.She told Italians said these EU-backed loans were “demonstrating European solidarity”.Conte said he “welcomed” the EU’s unemployment initiative.But the Italian leader also made it clear that he still wanted the coronabonds.”When fighting a war, you must do everything possible to win and equip yourself with all the tools needed for the (subsequent) reconstruction,” he wrote.Conte said this required “innovative tools such as the European Recovery Bonds.”He said these bonds are “useful to finance the extraordinary efforts that Europe will have to put in place” and “are in no way aimed at sharing the debt that each of our countries has inherited from the past”.EU leaders failed to find a common response last week and gave finance ministers until next Thursday to draft a new strategy.Italy’s world-leading toll from the new disease reached 13,915 on Thursday.Its three-week lockdown to stop the spread has been extended through at least mid-April and its economy is expected to suffer its biggest peacetime shock since World War II.last_img read more
