Last night as many of you were watching the debate Beyonce was in ATL in front of a sold out audience ripping the stage! She even found time to make a new addition to her FORMATION show to honor recent fallen rapper Shawty Lo who was killed in a car accident last week.

Check it out! Nashville can you believe it she will be here live in living color on Oct. 2!

Getting antsy and excited about our show here are some tips about the show:

She hit the stage close to 9 p.m., but official show time is 7:30 p.m., so arrive late at your own risk.
Her set list included 37 songs, including a tribute to Prince (“Purple Rain” – again), a tribute to husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy (“Halo”) and several songs from her just-released “Lemonade” album (the show-opening “Formation,” as well as “Hold Up,” “Sorry” and “Daddy Lessons” among them).
The stage – a gargantuan contraption that has been under construction at the Dome since Monday – features a lengthy catwalk leading to a secondary stage at the back of the floor, so fans are guaranteed a glimpse from most vantage points.

The concert is sold out, so don’t go to the venue expecting to buy a pair of tickets at the will call window. Some production hold seats are released sporadically, so keep an eye on ticketmaster.com and hope you get lucky.
Speaking of, Ticketmaster is the only official, verified source of tickets for the “Formation Tour.” If you purchased a ticket through Ticketmaster or the BeyHive, your ticket is authentic and you are protected in the event of a cancellation or postponement. If you can’t make the show, you can re-sell your tickets on Ticketmaster. “With a show of this magnitude, counterfeit tickets on the secondary market is a possibility, so just be careful of the source you use to purchase tickets,” said Jason Kirksey, senior communications specialist at the Georgia Dome. “If you can’t find the person or company you bought the ticket from in the event of a problem, it’s generally a good rule of thumb not to buy it.”

If you’re the social media-sharing type and just have to boast about your prized tickets online, a suggestion – #CoverTheCode. On your ticket – both paper and mobile – is a specific code. Anyone who acquires it can make duplicate tickets, which would render yours useless.

Balling on another level Kanye WEST and Kim Kardashian are excited about expanding their new $20 million mansion!

Once Kim Kardashian and Kanye West settle into their renovated Hidden Hills home … they’ll never have to leave, not even for a haircut or a movie.
The couple is a few months out from moving into their 5-acre compound. The unfinished business … a last-minute decision to expand the master suite … and clearly some major landscaping.
We’re told the home will have a 2-story playroom, gigantic gym, basketball court, hair salon, full spa with facial and massage room, and a music studio for Kanye. There’s even a FULL-SIZE movie theater with a Dolby sound system.

LIL WAYNE VS BABY

0923-birdman-taxed-fa-tmz-getty-3

According to TMZ:

Lil Wayne just caught a major break in his legal war with Birdman … a judge is forcing Baby to open his books to account for millions Weezy says he never saw.
Wayne had previously asked to see Birdman’s financial records to find out how he burned through $70 mil they were supposed to split from a $100 million advance from Universal.
As we reported … Birdman’s lawyers say they’ve already forked over more than 20,000 pages of docs to Wayne’s legal team. But Wayne’s attorneys claim those are useless, and they want a full-on money trail.
Here’s the problem for Birdman — his peeps over at Cash Money weren’t keeping very good track of those records … for 2 whole years. Birdman’s lawyer shrugged it off this way … “It is what it is.”
That excuse didn’t fly with the judge … who gave Birdman 30 days to find those records, or get the right person who knows where they are and get ’em to Wayne.
Sounds like he should’ve listened to Wayne, and held onto his receipts.

BRADGELINA HOLLYWOOD DIVORCE

0923-bragelina-prenup-composite-3

TMZ HAS SPILLED THE TEA WITH Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ON THEIR HOLLYWOOD DIVORCE!

Seems as though they are not going to have big financial issues, because they were only married for 2 years and they might have been expecting a divorce since day 1 … ’cause they have a prenup spelling out exactly who gets what … TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us their prenuptial agreement is ironclad and details the specifics of their combined fortune … a reported $400 mil.

Brangelina have 12 total properties together … all of which they snatched up either before they were married or before they were even dating. 7 of those belong to Brad, 2 to Angie and 3 which they bought together prior to tying the knot in 2014.

It’s unclear who exactly shelled out what for those 3 properties, which include a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans and an apartment in NY … but we’re told the prenup makes divvying all that up simple.
Rather than properties being an issue in the divorce, we’re told CUSTODY of their kids will be where the war really plays out.
As we reported … Brad plans to fight for joint physical custody of their 6 children.

TSU visits the White House

Tennessee State University’s Aristocrat of Bands was invited to Washington, D.C. to celebrate the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The famed band performed on the lawn of the White House on Friday, Sept. 23, a day before the museum was to open on the National Mall.

“We are extremely proud that our band and university are a part of this historic event with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for the grand opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in our nation¹s capital,” said Tennessee State University President Glenda Glover, who attended the event. “This is a proud moment for TSU as we continue to build
on our great legacy. TSU’s Aristocrat of Bands is the first HBCU band to perform for this administration at the White House.”

Dr. Reginald McDonald, director of University Bands, called the opportunity a “once in a lifetime chance.”

“A lot of people would never be able to say that they’ve had the opportunity to meet the President of the United States, let alone play on the White House lawn,” McDonald said. “This is tremendous.”

TSU has a number of items that will be part of opening exhibits at the museum, which has built a collection of about 40,000 artifacts. Several of the items are tied to legendary TSU Track and Field Coach Ed Temple, who died Thursday at the age of 89.

Glover said while the visit to the White House was exciting, it was also somewhat somber because of Temple’s death.

“This is a sad time as we mourn the loss of our beloved Coach Ed temple, who would have attended the event,” she said. “TSU has a number of sports-related items in the museum’s opening exhibits that are there because of the accomplishments of Temple at TSU
and the Olympics.”

Grant Winrow, TSU’s director of special projects, worked with Kelli Sharpe, assistant vice president for public relations and communications, to help the museum coordinate the display of the university items.

Winrow said the items, as well as the band’s performance, showcase TSU’s “excellence.”

“Now all the world can see what our great university has produced,” Winrow said.

636099042595545541-kanye-ap-3

Love him or hate him — to use a phrase that seems to follow West around — the 39-year-old is one of the most famous music-makers in the world, and when he has a microphone, the world listens, either out of interest, contempt or morbid curiosity.

West will take the microphone in Nashville for the first time in nearly three years on Saturday, as his ambitious “Saint Pablo” tour stops at Bridgestone Arena

The Statements

Somewhere in the middle of those 30-plus songs — typically during the tune “Runaway” — comes a moment Kanye fans (and the media) have come to expect. You might call it a monologue, or alternately, a rant. Whatever it is, it usually lasts around ten minutes and is an unfiltered glimpse into West’s state of mind. The last time he was in Nashville, he called out Nike CEO Mark Parker after signing a deal to make shoes with Adidas.

“I’m going to create more than you think that any musician in the history of time ever could have,” he proclaimed.

Last week, he had frequent collaborator Kid Cudi in his crosshairs. Cudi insinuated on Twitter that West was among the “fake ones” for using multiple co-writers on his songs. During a concert in Tampa, Florida, West told instructed Cudi to “never mention (his) name.”

“Respect the god,” he added.

The STAGE

Even if you can’t stand West, it might be hard for you to look away from his latest concert innovation: the flying stage. While countless pop stars have floated over the crowd in small contraptions for years, West’s show marks the first time an entire stage is constantly suspended over the audience, and it’s his home for the full length of the show. A sea of fans stand underneath the stage on the arena floor, and they have the freedom to follow the West around as the stage travels through the arena, or use the surrounding lights and speakers to host their own dance circles and mosh pits directly under the stage, with West out of view.

“The whole concept of this is to go anywhere you want,” he told his audience on the first stop of the tour.

The Songs

West has been performing more than 30 songs a night on this current tour, and a large portion stem from his most recent release “The Life of Pablo.” That album was released in February, but was continually revised with new mixes and alterations for months — an unprecedented move for such a high-profile release. Elsewhere, he picks favorites from each of his albums, which stretches back to 2004’s “College Dropout.” There will be more than a few attendees at Saturday’s show who’ve never known a world without West in the spotlight. West’s prodigious output has earned him 22 Grammy awards to date.

The Setting

Whether Nashville likes it or not, it’s a town that tangentially factors into West’s legend. Five years before he met Taylor Swift, it was another Nashville star that made West cause a scene at an awards show. Gretchen Wilson beat him for Best New Artist at the 2004 American Music Awards, and West told reporters, “I was definitely robbed…I was the best new artist this year.”

In 2008, he frustrated quite a few concertgoers at the Bonnaroo festival when he didn’t hit his stage until after 4 a.m., and his 2014 return wasn’t quite the redemption the festival was hoping for.

And of course, there’s Taylor. It took years for West and Swift to repair their relationship after he stole the microphone from her at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. They had just patched things up when West released “Famous,” on which West declared he “made that ____ famous.” The two have been battling throughout the year over whether or not Swift approved the song ahead of its release, and after West released a video for the song featuring a nude sculpture of Swift, their relationship is messier than ever.

If You Go

Kanye West performs at Bridgestone Arena (501 Broadway) on Saturday, September 24. The concert starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are $29.50 – $114.50.

David Beckham Push UP Challenge

davidbeckham22pushups

For three consecutive days David Beckham has posted a video of himself doing 22 push-ups (or press-ups as they’re called in the U.K.) as part of the 22 push-up challenge. The challenge is aiming to raise awareness for the 22 military veterans who die by suicide each day in this country. Not only is this a good cause—frankly, we could do a lot more to support our veterans—but it’s also giving us and everyone on Instagram a close-range look at how and where David Beckham works out.
