Radiohead is four shows into their 2017 world tour, and they have been rotating their catalog to include rare material almost every night. In Miami, the band busted out “Morning Bell,” “I Might Be Wrong”, and “The Tourist,” and then played “House of Cards” for the first time since 2012 in Atlanta. While the band didn’t turn out any rarities in New Orleans (though the show was still incredible), the band continued debuting long-lost material last night in Kansas City, when they performed Hail To The Thief standout “Where I End And You Begin” for the first time since 2008. Of course, the band delivered another career-spanning setlist to put together a remarkable show, with “Where I End And You Begin” as the cherry on top of another magnificent show.Check out a video of the major bust-out below, courtesy of YouTube user Hoppípolla, as well as a full setlist from the performance in Kansas City.

Share LifestyleTravel UK MP hails Caribbean unity on air passenger duty issue by: – June 28, 2011 Share Sharing is caring! Tweet Share 30 Views no discussions By Vivienne SivaBritish Member of Parliament, Julian Smith LONDON, England (JIS) — The likely review of the British government’s airline passenger duty (APD) has been cited as a good example of what can be achieved when the UK Caribbean community in the United Kingdom works together.Conservative Member of Parliament, Julian Smith, told the Caribbean Question Time meeting in London on June 21, that the lobbying by nationals of the region in the UK is likely to solve the problem of the inequality of the tax measure.The APD is an excise duty paid by airline passengers travelling from UK airports. The tax is levied according to groups of countries and by the class of travel used.Jamaica and other Caribbean governments have lobbied against anomalies in how the APD is structured, because flights to the Caribbean attract a higher tax than flights to the United States, which are farther away.Caribbean tourism and government officials, including Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Bruce Golding; and Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett, have had meetings with British ministers on the matter, who have made representations in Parliament.Finance Minister George Osborne, in May, announced the launch of a consultation on the APD “to achieve a tax system for aviation that is fair, simple, and efficient.”The consultation period, which ended June 17, considered the views and evidence submitted by interested stakeholders.The consultation document made it clear that any restructuring of APD will be achieved on a revenue-neutral basis.Former Labour Member of Parliament for Brent, Dawn Butler, who also addressed the meeting of Caribbean nationals, urged them to remain vigilant, noting that while changes to the APD may solve the issues of inequality, the duty could prove to be even more expensive.Other issues raised during the meeting included the planned increase in tuition fees for universities and its likely impact on black students; the effects of new UK immigration regulations on Caribbean nationals; and increasing the political influence of the UK Caribbean community.Caribbean News Now
Arsene Wenger has warned his Arsenal team how they perform over the Barclays Premier League run-in will decide his summer transfer plans. “We have had some blips that were not expected, Blackburn and Bradford (in the cup competitions), but overall I must say the attitude of the team has been great and when everyone is here (fit), then we have a strong team. “What is important is to analyse where we can improve at the end of the season.” Despite his warnings that each man is effectively playing for his place – with even captain Thomas Vermaelen and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny no longer guaranteed a start – Wenger feels the current squad do deserve a great deal of credit for the way they have hauled themselves back into contention with a run of five wins in the last seven league games. “They have gone through difficult times and have responded well,” he said, “They have shown mental strength as we lost against Blackburn (at home in the FA Cup), Bayern (in the Champions League at home) and then Tottenham, so as well they could be scared that the group implodes. “We have shown a strong response against Bayern (in the Champions League away) and also Swansea, so that shows that this group is mentally strong.” Wenger is set to have a bumper warchest with which to improve the squad when the transfer window re-opens – and the Arsenal boss wants his players to show him there is no need to bring in reinforcements for their position by finishing what has been a testing campaign in style. “We have to analyse. What will decide our attitude, my attitude, is how we do now until the end of the season,” said Wenger. Press Association
