Next, Clark will head to Springfield, MO (3/13) before landing in the Windy City for a two-night run at the Chicago Theatre (3/15, 3/16).After stops in Indianapolis (3/18) and Pittsburgh (3/20), the Austin, TX native will head to New York City for a three-night stand at the historic Beacon Theatre (3/21, 3/22, 3/23) followed by a two-night stine at Boston’s House of Blues (3/26, 3/27).

Finally, Clark will head to Nashville, TN’s storied Ryman Auditorium for a three-night stint to cap the spring swing.The dates were shared along with the previously released teaser video for his new album. In the video, the guitarist runs down the ways in which various genres had an effect on his sound on the new album over clips of its recording process and endorsements of Clark and his eclectic musical sensibilities from a variety of outlets and influential people like Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, Alicia Keys, Prince, and Barack Obama.As one quote from Rolling Stone notes, “Owing as much to Kurt Cobain and The Ramones as Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker… indebted to hip-hop and psychedelia, [Clark] is grounded in tradition while standing on the brink of change.”As Clark explains in a voice-over, “When I started off on the record, it was really about the drums. If the drums aren’t poppin’, you’re wasting your time.” He continues, “I got all the colors, I’ma paint with all of them. … My punk edge comes from really just wanting to be a punk. Reggae influence? Yes. It goes back to that fusion thing. … When I was growing up, a lot of music venues played lots of different types of music every night. A lot of influences. A lot of stuff going on. It’s in what I do, I guess. … I’m not gonna give you my whole recipe, but the only person who can put rules on it is yourself.”Watch the teaser video for the upcoming new Gary Clark Jr. album below.

We will rise to occasion – O’Neill

first_img They have their own business to attend to, notably kicking off a campaign with three straight wins for the first time in their history. And O’Neill has seen enough in recent experiences to be sure they will not be sidetracked by events in the stands. “When you come away from home you expect it and I think we’ll rise to it, not be intimidated by it,” he said. “It’s not at all a concern for us, I actually prefer it that way. “The first game against Romania behind closed doors was difficult for Greece but I think our players would have found that scenario difficult too. “I think our side enjoyed the great atmosphere at Windsor Park when we beat the Faroe Islands on Saturday night and there was a great atmosphere when we beat Hungary in Budapest. “We’ve seen this group of players in front of 60,000 people in Uruguay too, so I don’t have any fears about that.” O’Neill was not keen to be drawn on his squad’s status as potential record breakers and would be more than happy to add another point to the six that have taken them to top spot in Group F. The home contingent are expected to provide a hostile welcome on Tuesday night having been banned from Greece’s Euro 2016 opener against Romania due to previous disturbances. Defeat in that match, followed by a draw in Finland, means there is plenty riding on the result for Claudio Ranieri’s outfit but O’Neill is convinced Northern Ireland will not be cowed by the occasion. Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill insists the Greek fans hold no fear for his side as they go in search of an historic victory in Athens. Press Association Curbing any excess exuberance is more his style but he could not deny being buoyed by the confidence that has entered the group. ”Our aim hasn’t changed just because we’ve had a good start and Greece have had a poor start, our objective is to try and finish in those top three positions,” he said. ”When we looked at the fixtures when they came out and our best chances of getting points this wouldn’t have been a game we would have looked at. ‘We’ve never said we think we can win the group or anything like that, but the belief is in this squad that they are more than capable of competing. “The start we’ve had has given us the belief that we can come here and add to our points tally.” O’Neill let his measured demeanour slip just once as he pondered stretching the 100 per cent record into a third game and joked: ”I think would expect some sort of plaque or statue for that if I’m honest.” Gareth McAuley, who would win his 50th cap, is the only serious injury doubt having collided with the post against the Faroe Islands, while Shane Ferguson and Niall McGinn could drop to the bench in favour of more defensive options. last_img read more

Tony Romo’s reported record salary with CBS rivals what top NFL QBs are getting

first_imgTony Romo’s second contract as an NFL TV analyst looks like something a middling NFL quarterback could command.Romo is due to make $17 million per season in a record-setting new deal with CBS, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported Friday night. Sources told Marchand that the contract is for “significantly more than five years” and could be in excess of $100 million in total.   MORE: Frank Caliendo’s impression of Romo couldn’t be more perfectCBS spokeswoman Jen Sabatelle confirmed late Friday that the network and Romo had agreed on a new contract, per The Associated Press, but she did not disclose terms.John Madden held the record for analyst salary at $8 million per year, Marchand reported. Madden secured that amount in the early 2000s, years after becoming a broadcasting superstar.Romo, who made about $3 million last season, was poised to become a prized television free agent in the spring (Disney/ESPN, which has “Monday Night Football,” was rumored to be a potential aggressive suitor), but CBS did what a lot of NFL teams do: extend financially to keep their stars. The former Cowboy QB is very much a star after three seasons as the network’s top NFL game analyst working alongside Jim Nantz. Marchand and the AP noted that CBS had an exclusive negotiating window with Romo before he could test the market. To put Romo’s reported new deal into perspective: The $17 million would put him 17th among the league’s current signed quarterbacks in terms of salary cap value for 2020, between Andy Dalton and Drew Brees, according to Spotrac.com. Romo does even better when the comp is average annual value for last season’s quarterbacks. By that measure, he would have been 14th, between Philip Rivers and Dalton.Romo secured an $18 million AAV when he signed a six-year, $108 million contract extension with the Cowboys in 2013. A lot of that Dallas money was later shuffled around through restructuring, but his CBS money is fully guaranteed and not subject to creative cap accounting.Dak Prescott, you ask? Romo’s successor made $2 million in the final year of his rookie contract with Cowboys in 2019. Yes, he will make a lot more than that as an unrestricted free agent in his next contract, whenever that gets done. He should, in theory, make more than Romo, too.last_img read more
