Peter Frampton & Gregg Allman Join Forces For Indy Throwdown [A Gallery]

first_imgThere’s nothing quite like the opportunity to see a music legend at work. So many individuals have given themselves to the art of performance, but only a choice few can maintain longevity and stand the test of time. Last night at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn in Indianapolis, IN, not one but two legends performed for an enthusiastic crowd. Those legends were, of course, Peter Frampton and Gregg Allman.Frampton has enjoyed a successful career, powered by hits like “Show Me The Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do?” There’s no slowing down for the rocker, as he treated fans to a great celebration of his music. Allman, too, has shown no signs of slowing down, even though his band The Allman Brothers shut down after their 45th anniversary in 2014. His new solo act is top-notch, bringing fans a potent mix of ABB hits, blues standards, and more.Thankfully, Phierce Photo was on the ground to capture this classic rockin’ scene. Check it out below!

Sutton Foster on Getting Glam & Not Singing on Her New Sitcom Younger

first_img View Comments The Broadway favorite, who begins filming the new series on September 22, says she was excited about the show from first blush. “Usually when I get a script, I look at a couple of pages and then whatever,” Foster says, “but with this I sat down in my kitchen and read it all in one sitting. I remember thinking, ‘This is great: She’s kind of dorky and awkward and is trying to reinvent herself…I can do that!’” Foster’s having a ball channeling her inner 20-something. “When I was 26, I was in rehearsals for Millie,“ she says. “I was gratefully working in my 20s, and I never really thought of myself as hip, so this is really fun. The cool thing about it is that I get to keep all of the maturity and intelligence that I have as a 40-year-old.” Star Files Will Foster show off her triple-threat skills on the show? “No karaoke episodes,” she laughs. “With Bunheads, I had the outlet to sing and dance, but this is a totally different thing. I get to show a different side of myself. I think Liza’s tone deaf, so maybe you’ll hear some tone-deaf singing.” The other cool thing is how much she’s enjoying getting decked out for the part. “Let’s just say this is the polar opposite of Violet,” Foster says referring to her most recent Broadway appearance. “I get to be dressed by Patricia Field; my wardrobe is insane. I’m wearing a lot of makeup, and my hair is glammed and highlighted. I get to live vicariously through Liza.” Tony winner Sutton Foster and the cast of her newest project, TV Land’s Younger, shared a sneak peek at the pilot episode of the fresh and funny sitcom on September 19 at New York City’s Soho House. The show, which Foster previously described to Broadway.com as “Tootsie but with age,” follows 40-year-old Liza, a single mom who passes herself off as 26 in order to land a job in publishing.  Younger, which features Hilary Duff, Miriam Shor, Debi Mazar and Nico Tortorella in addition to Foster, will premiere on TV Land in January.

Former Donaco boss Joey Lim moving to stop company takeover

first_img Ainsworth launches review of product development after Asia-Pacific struggles see FY19 decline RelatedPosts Former Donaco International Limited Managing Director and CEO Joey Lim has filed an application to the Australian Government’s Takeovers Panel in an effort to prevent the sale of a 9.71% stake in the company to Hong Kong and Singapore-based investment firm Orchard Capital Partners (OCP).The application was confirmed by the Takeovers Panel on Monday, although it added that no decision has yet been made on whether it would continue with proceedings. Donaco ready to reset after horror year sees losses widen in FY19 on Cambodia impairment charge Inside Asian Gaming understands that Lim, whose employment was terminated by Donaco last month following a three-month leave of absence to deal with health and personal matters, obtained a loan from OCP but has since defaulted on repayments – leading OCP to appoint receivers over all Donaco shares previously controlled by the Lim family. Those shares amount to 27.25% of Donaco’s issued share capital.OCP also purchased a 9.71% stake in Donaco on market in December, a sale that has prompted Lim and other family-linked shareholders to file their objection claiming breaches to Australian takeover laws.Those shareholders are named as Gerald Tan, Total Alpha Investments Ltd, Slim Twinkle Ltd, Convent Ltd and Max Union Corporate Development Ltd.According to Monday’s announcement by the Takeovers Panel, Lim and co “submit that the acquisition by OCP of a relevant interest in Donaco shares in excess of 9.71% in circumstances where the aggregation of the relevant interests in those shares with the relevant interests in Donaco shares of 27.25% arising as a result of the enforcement of securities, as a consequence of which OCP has a relevant interest of 37% of Donaco, is unacceptable.”Australia’s takeover provisions for listed companies states that the acquisition of a relevant interest in voting shares is prohibited if a person’s voting power in the company increases from under 20% to over 20%, or if it increases from a starting point that is above 20% and below 90%.
