If it doesn't sell, they should just offer it as a door prize.

I wonder if folk who make offers not deemed high enough will be told not to let the door hit them on their way out.

^^ Buncha knobheads.

One of Ringo's shows schedule for October has been canceled. Hopefully it doesn't affect anyone here:

Ringo Starr's press office confirmed Aug. 4 that the Ringo Starr All-Starr Band concert scheduled for Oct. 12 at Snowden Grove Amphitheater in Southaven, Mississippi has just been canceled because of travel issues. “They hope to make it back there on a future tour,” Ringo's press representative told Beatles Examiner.

No other shows on the tour have been canceled, according to current information. The concert was one of 16 shows set for an October mini-tour by the All-Starr Band, who just completed a series of U.S. dates in July. The shows in the Midwest and South were to cover Nebraska, Texas, Mississippi, South Carolina and Florida. The additional shows were announced in June.

From the official Beatles Facebook page:

Did you see The Beatles at Candlestick Park in 1966? Are you going back to see Paul at Candlestick’s final concert?

White Horse Pictures, who are producing the recently announced film with Ron Howard about the band's touring years, would love to hear your story.

Please contact the team at BeatlesLive@whitehorsepics.com

Paul is to play "Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert" August 14th, the last event at the stadium before it closes, and where

The Beatles played their final tour performance on August 29th 1966.

File under "news in the most generous sense":

Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have been invited to perform at 'Alien Woodstock' in a bid to make extra-terrestrials reveal themselves to the planet.

The two musicians - who were joined in The Fab Four by the late John Lennon and George Harrison - are wanted by UFO expert Michael C. Luckman to play at the proposed event in Malibu, California.

Luckman - who is director of the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research - has a theory there is a huge underwater alien base located six miles off of Malibu's Point Dume in the Pacific Ocean and he wants to use a host of pop stars who believe in alien life to coax them out of their base.

As well as Paul and Ringo, Luckman also wants Yoko Ono - the widow of late Beatle John Lennon - her son Sean Lennon and Dahni Harrison, the son of deceased fourth band member George Harrison, to take part in the concert.

It's one of the world’s most famous cultural landmarks.

But Beatles fans travelling to Abbey Road will soon have an unwanted addition to their sought-after photographs of the iconic zebra crossing – a lollipop lady.

Rolling Stone and New York Times on Paul's collaboration on the video game score for Destiny. The theme song will be released as a single. No date on that yet, but the game itself will be out September 9.

Saw that - VERY mixed feelings on game forums - folks are worried over how much of the game budget went on hiring a Beatle.  I suspect not too much as he will make money if the single sells.
