“Alessandra Ambrosio shared an emotional note with fans about her final walk down the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway on Instagram. ‘Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been working for this amazing brand that inspires me and women all over the world,’ she wrote. ‘In my wildest dreams I would have never imagined doing 17 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows. Thank you Ed [Razek], and all my Victoria’s Secret family for making these memories unforgettable. Last night was so emotional to say goodbye to my #angel sisters but we put on the biggest and best show ever. I could not have done this without all the love and support from my fans. It gives me great pride to be part the Victoria’s Secret movement! I will always be cheering for you! Love you forever’ ”

Arcade Fire “Everything Now” LIVE with Apple Music

“On Thursday (July 27), the eve of Arcade Fire‘s latest album release, the Canadian rockers celebrated with a two-hour long performance at Brooklyn’s Grand Prospect Hall, a gorgeous wedding venue complete with a chandelier hung over the makeshift stage in the center of the floor.

“The rollout process of the group’s fifth studio album, Everything Now, out Friday (July 28), has been one for the books as it included everything from a fake corporation — Everything Now Corp. — to trolling Kendall and Kylie Jenner by placing their faces over their own band T-shirts. But the main event, the release show that was being livestreamed by Apple, knocked everything else out of the park.”

The 747 Project: Imagine Bigger in 2017

In 2016, our IndieGogo campaign raised over $86,000 (137% of our goal!), and we brought the front upper-half of the plane to Burning Man.

The 747 touches down on playa during Early Man

During the day, the plane was a place of personal transformation. Pass through the Insecurity Checkpoint, leave your worries at the Emotional Baggage Check, get your flight wings at the Departures window. Kick back in the cockpit, relax on our fuzzy sofas, take shelter from the harsh desert weather. After sundown, the plane transformed into a dance floor.

Music from sunset to sunrise

This year, we bring the rest of the upper section of the plane. The fuselage on playa will literally double in size.

See our most recent video update:

“This is OUR art project. We want EVERYONE to know our story and see the love that’s gone into creating the incredibly special experience we’re cultivating on and off the playa And we’re going bigger in 2017.”

Neil Diamond Comes Home to the Greek

“Four decades after ‘Hot August Night,’ Neil Diamond delivers a career retrospective from the same stage that launched his into the stratosphere.

“As one of the most popular live performers in the world, Neil Diamond has a lot of venues he can call his own, but only one he can truly call home: L.A.’s Greek Theatre. As the story goes, and the new 40th anniversary edition of Hot August Night confirms, in 1972, Diamond was on the verge of superstardom. He needed one major signature event to make the leap and the multi-platinum Hot August Night, recorded at the Greek on August 24, 1972, became that transcendent moment. After that date, Neil Diamond became an icon.”

Super Bowl Halftime Show 2017

“For more than a few people who tuned into Sunday night’s Super Bowl, the halftime performance was more exciting than the football.

“This is because Lady Gaga, who headlined the event, by all accounts stole the show, delivering what many have called the best halftime show in the history of the Super Bowl.”

“Gaga mainly sang the choruses from her hit songs but when it came to her 2011 hit, ‘Born This Way,’ she again offered another clear message of acceptance by choosing to sing lyrics from a verse towards the end of the song: ‘No matter gay, straight, or bi, Lesbian, transgendered life/I’m on the right track baby/I was born to survive.’
“Gaga has long been outspoken on the issue of LGBTQ rights, and the presence of Vice President Mike Pence in the audience at the game may have played a role in that message.”
