Music & Entertainment News – Wednesday 11/29/17

Yesterday (Tuesday 11/28/17) was not only Giving Tuesday — where we’re encouraged to help those less fortunate — it also marked the fourth year of Bedstock.


Bedstock is where artists play from bed for sick kids stuck in theirs. It raises funds and awareness for MyMusicRx, a program that delivers the healing power of music to hospitalized kids across the country.

Taking part this year are Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band, who do under- and on-top-of-the-covers versions of “Yellow Submarine” from the back of their tour bus.

Among the many other artists taking part in Bedstock are Ed Sheeran and Nick Jonas.

Ramport, The Who’s old recording studio in south London, was recognized with a green plaque last week to commemorate it as an historic location. They recorded Quadrophenia and filmed the video for “Who Are You” there.

The management of Prince’s Paisley Park is asking the local council for permission to serve alcohol.
The compound, which has drawn 200,000 fans since opening to the public, has not previously applied for such a permit. But with the Twin Cities hosting the Super Bowl in February, Paisley Park wants to cash in on the private party business.

The request for a special permit is to accommodate cocktail parties for between 500 to 1,000 guests.
Mayor Denny Laufenberger says his city of Chanhassen is “concerned about public safety. We’re concerned about responsible distribution of alcohol.” The plan also drew a negative response on social media because some fans say Prince didn’t allow alcohol at public events at Paisley Park.
Chanhasen’s planning commission will hold a hearing on the request next Tuesday, with a vote by the full council expected on December 11th. (KMSP FOX 9)
