DIRTY JOHN

ERIC BANA CAST OPPOSITE CONNIE BRITTON IN BRAVO MEDIA’S ‘DIRTY JOHN’

 

From Universal Cable Productions, in association with Los Angeles Times Studios and Atlas Entertainment, Bana To Play John Meehan

 

Eric Bana (MUNICH and currently starring in THE FORGIVEN) is set to star opposite Connie Britton (NASHVILLE, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS) in the first season of Bravo Media’s scripted anthology series DIRTY JOHN, based on the articles and breakout true crime podcast of the same name from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard.  Marking his U.S. television debut, Bana will star as John Meehan, a handsome and romantic charmer who sweeps Debra Newell (Britton) off her feet and pulls her into his web of lies.  The series chronicles the true story of how a romance with Meehan spiraled into secrets, denial and manipulation.  DIRTY JOHN is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP), in association with Los Angeles Times Studios and Atlas Entertainment, and will be executive produced and written by Alexandra Cunningham (CHANCE, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES). Richard Suckle and Charles Roven will serve as executive producers for Atlas Entertainment; Mark Herzog, Christopher G. Cowen and Chris Argentieri will serve as executive producers for Los Angeles Times Studios; Britton and Bana will also serve as executive producers.

Bana was first introduced to American audiences in the title role of Mark “Chopper” Read in the feature film CHOPPER, which premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and was then released in the U.S. to critical notice after its Australian success. Bana earned awards from the Australian Film Critics Circle and the Australian Film Institute for his portrayal of “Chopper.”

Bana was seen co-starring in Ridley Scott’s BLACK HAWK DOWN as Delta Sgt. First Class “Hoot” Gibson, one of a group of elite US soldiers opposite Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor and Tom Sizemore. The war epic, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Sony, is based on journalist Mark Bowden’s best-selling account of the 1993 US mission in Mogadishu, Somalia. Shortly thereafter, Eric starred as the title role of Bruce Banner in THE HULK for director Ang Lee and Universal Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics character. He was also featured as Hector the Prince of Troy in Warner Bros.’ TROY, for director Wolfgang Peterson.  The film was based on Homer’s “The Iliad”, and co-starred Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom.  The following year, he starred in Steven Spielberg’s critically acclaimed MUNICH, about the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Bana’s other credits include J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster hit STAR TREK, Judd Apatow’s FUNNY PEOPLE opposite Adam Sandler, Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill, the action-thriller HANNA with Saoirse Ronan and Cate Blanchett, and LONE SURVIVOR alongside Mark Wahlberg. He can currently be seen in THE FORGIVEN, opposite Forest Whitaker, directed by Roland Joffe.

Bana is represented by WME and Sloan, Offer, Weber and Dern.

EMIRATES AIRLINE DUBAI JAZZ FESTIVAL

By Amardeep Singh

EMIRATES BRINGS JAZZ TO DUBAI ONCE AGAIN

When you’ve got a superb lineup of some of the greatest figures coming together for a musical sensation, you know there’s a lot at stake each year as the crowd’s expectations increase. Emirates Airlines celebrated its newest iteration of the much awaited Jazz Music Festival. The 16th Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival ran from 21 to 23 February 2018 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre and featured the following main performances:

Duran Duran:- The band performed single hits and solos going back to the Top 10 days with several encores and repeat performances carrying away the opening night to a heightened and euphoric beginning.

RENEGADE BRASS BAND:- RBB has already played packed-out shows at venues around the UK and Europe and have had collaborations with De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy, The Cat Empire, Jamie Cullum, Quantic, Craig Charles and many more artists. RBB’s festival performances include the Glastonbury, Java Jazz Festival Jakarta, Sea Sessions Ireland, Black Sea Jazz Festival, Stuttgart Jazz Festival and Soundwave Croatia.

JOHN LEGEND:- John Legend made his entry into the festival for the third time wowing fans with hits like All of Me from his fourth studio album ‘Love in the Future’ which claimed the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles Chart and reached #1 on both Mainstream Top 40 and Rhythmic Charts.

CHINA MOSES:- An exceptionally young artist with a rich R&B heritage, China Moses drew the crowds crazy with her jazz vocals and injected the theater in a frenzy of melody and musical masterpieces.

RICKY MARTIN:- The night was kept pumping with chartbusters like “Living La Vida Loca”, “The Cup of Life” and “She Bangs” as Ricky Martin took the spot. Performances included samples from his recent single “Vente Pa’ Ca” which became one of the biggest hits of 2016, topping the charts worldwide.

VERA CIOCCA:- Originally a soloist focusing in Pop and R&B music, she participated on The Voice Teens Colombia, where out of 10,000 participants, she was among the top 8. With more than 700,000 views on social media and millions of rising fans worldwide, her performances were a treat for the local populace.

The first ever inaugural edition took place in January 2003 selling just over a thousand tickets which has steadily increased over the years. Unlike the three day format, by 2012 the festival was extended to 10 days in celebration of its 10th anniversary and saw more than 50,000 entrants.

The 2015 edition remains the best selling edition having 3 sold out nights featuring award winning artists including Sting, John Legend, and James Blunt to add to the roster.

But beyond the stage and glamour that surrounds the theater, the festival is a major musical milestone for the region. It remains the most awarded music event in the UAE receiving the “What’s On” Award for “The Best Festival” consistently in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010. It also received the “Best Public Entertainment Event in The Middle East” for 2008 and the “Best Marketing of An Event” Award in 2009 at the EVENT 360 “; the Time Out Award for the “Best Music Festival” in 2010, with the recent Ahlan! Best In Dubai Award as the “Best Music Event” for 2010.

One thing seems certain, the crowds are getting larger and loaded for more.

UB40 A REAL LABOUR OF LOVE

UB40

FEATURING ALI, ASTRO & MICKEY

‘A REAL LABOUR OF LOVE’

THE NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE NOW ON UMe

This digital package includes a fully stream-able or downloadable, watermarked version of the audio, cover art, publicity photos and press release for review.

‘A Real Labour Of Love’ is the new album from UB40 Featuring Ali, Astro & Mickey, to be released March 2nd on UMe. As founding members of Britain’s biggest reggae band UB40, singer Ali Campbell, second vocalist Astro and keyboardist Mickey Virtue topped the UK singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe. Now with ‘A Real Labour Of Love’ the trio give us a fresh take on the legendary series of albums, putting the focus primarily on reggae tracks from the 1980s.

“The first three albums featured the songs we grew up listening to,” says Ali. “This one is built around the records we were listening to once UB40 were on the road.”

Between 1983 and 1998 UB40 produced three ‘Labour Of Love’ albums, bringing hits such as Eric Donaldson’s ‘Cherry Oh Baby’, Lord Creator’s ‘Kingston Town’ and Johnny Osbourne’s ‘Come Back Da! rling’ to a new, global audience. They also topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with their reggae cover of Neil Diamond’s ‘Red Red Wine’.

And now 20 years later Ali, Astro and Mickey are revitalizing the concept by exploring the tunes of a later golden age, ‘A Real Labour Of Love’ sees the group explore the songs that defined reggae in the Eighties. The concept isn’t a rigid one: Stevie Wonder’s ‘A Place In The Sun’ is a Motown classic from 1966, and there are numbers from the late Seventies in Dennis Brown’s sublime ‘How Could I Leave’ and Culture’s ‘International Herb’. But most of the tracks on ‘A Real Labour Of Love’ are from the Eighties, a decade that saw dancehall reggae enter the mainstream.

“We were spending more time in Jamaica and some of these numbers are the ones we’d hear on the radio and out in the streets,” says Astro. “The singers of these songs were our heroes. They are quintessential reggae artists.”

The new album builds confidently on the momentum gathered in the five years since Astro rejoined singer Ali and keyboardist Mickey in 2013. They have released two acclaimed albums, ‘Silhouette’ (2014) and ‘Unplugged’ (2016), their first ! acoustic album and their first release with UMG.

Recorded and mixed at Dean Street and RAK Studios, ‘A Real Labour Of Love’ was produced by Ali, whose instantly recognizable voice is augmented by the ‘sing-jay’ vocal style of Astro. The latter takes the lead on six of the album’s 16 tracks, placing the two singers at the helm of an 11-piece band. Sadly, ‘A Real Labour Of Love’ also marks the passing of long-serving trombonist John Johnson. A former member of Simply Red who joined forces with Ali seven years ago, John played on the album but passed away the night before the rest of the group were due to play a benefit concert to raise money for his cancer treatment. The album is dedicated to him.

The unique artwork for ‘A Real Labour Of Love’ by celebrated American contemporary artist Mark T Smith was specially commissioned for the release. A first edition print, signed by the artist and the band, is being auctioned with proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust, details to follow soon.

The group are now looking forward to taking their new album on the road, with UK festival appearances lined up for the summer and a UK arena tour in the pipeline f! or 2019. Given the massive success of the trio’s last ‘Labour Of Love’ outing, a 2016 tour that featured sold-out shows at the O2 Arena in London and the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, there is bound to be a huge appetite for ‘A Real Labour Of Love.’

“The reaction to that tour was fantastic, and every show was a sell-out,” says Ali. “Now we’re ready to do it all again. We knew most of these songs back to front before we began recording ‘A Real Labour Of Love,’ so the challenge was to make them our own rather than copying the originals.”

ARIN RAY PLATINUM FIRE

INTERSCOPE ARTIST ARIN RAY RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM, PLATINUM FIRE

14-TRACK PROJECT FEATURES TY DOLLA $IGN, YG AND TERRACE MARTIN

Interscope Records’ R&B singer-songwriter Arin Ray is proving that he’s come “a long way since the X Factor” with the release of his debut album, Platinum Fire. The robust 14-track project takes listeners on a winding journey as Ray reminisces over everything from love and temptation, old school memories and failed friendships. With a dream team of producers in tow (F Keys, Terrace Martin, Childish Major and Nez & Rio), the album is as musical as it is personal. Ray showcases his powerful vocal range over a medley of hip-hop, jazz and neo-soul influenced instrumentals. The end result is a nuanced blend of new and old school sound which is sure to catch the ear of music lovers across the board. The album is now available on all digital retailers and features Childish Major, Terrace Martin, Ty Dolla $ign, DRAM, SiR and YG.

“This is history for me, 22 years in the making, I put my life into this sh*t. Changing the way we listen to music has always been a dream and this is my opportunity.”

Platinum Fireincludes the 2017 single, “We Ain’t Homies (featuring YG),” which was written and co-produced by Ray. The single served as a strong addition to Ray’s long list of writing credits which includes songs for Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Rick Ross. The Cincinnati native released his debut EP, Phases, in 2016; four years after first gaining popularity on the hit show X Factor. The album marks the beginning of a busy year for Ray as he is currently working on a jazz album with Terrace Martin and Robert Glasper, due late 2018.

PIRELLI CYBER CAR

PIRELLI PRESENTS CYBER CAR IN GENEVA

New Original Equipment Sensor System Enabling Interaction Between Tire & Car

New Technology Currently In Testing On Major Electric and Traditional Car Platforms

Cyber Car Enables a Safer Drive and Improved Performance Via Transmitting Tire Functionality to On-Board Intelligence to Adapt ABS and Stability Control Systems

PIRELLI EQUIPS NEW KEY PRESTIGE AND PREMIUM MODELS AT GENEVA

Pirelli’s digital revolution has taken a new step forward in enabling a tire to gather and transmit data. At the 88th Geneva International Motor Show, Pirelli presents its Cyber Car technology for Original Equipment in cooperation with major car makers. Cyber Car enables the tire to directly interact with the car’s on-board electronics system, and in particular the driver assistance systems, delivering important information about the car’s operation to ensure a safer drive with enhanced performance. The new Pirelli system will be in market by year end on the most innovative electric and traditional cars.

Placing sensors in the tires is an integral part of Pirelli’s Perfect fit strategy, which focuses on developing made to measure products and services that meet both driver needs and car manufacturer specializations.

CYBER CAR: WHEN TIRES AND CARS TALK TO EACH OTHER. Pirelli’s big news for the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Cyber Car is the new smart tire system for the Original Equipment market, designed in close collaboration with car manufacturers. Cyber Car supplies important data that improves safety and performance. With the exception of tire pressures monitored by TPMS systems, up until now there has been no information collected individually by tires that is transmitted to the car. Therefore Cyber Car takes car digitalization into a new era. The tire embedded sensor is an innovative form of automotive intelligence integrated into existing driver aids that improves performance, efficiency and environmental impact through capturing and transmitting key tire data to the vehicle, such as pressure, internal temperature and tread depth. It can activate systems such as ABS and stability control. For example, by reading a tire’s ID, the vehicle can alter its set-up for a safer, more comfortable drive. By knowing the car’s accurate weight, the vehicle’s central control unit can calculate precisely how many miles can be driven before recharging.

Cyber Car informs the driver about the tire’s vertical load (vital information for electric cars), temperature and pressure through the carmaker’s interface, allowing timely intervention if the pressures are wrong. Tire maintenance becomes easier, thanks to specific feedback on tread wear and how tires should be seasonally rotated. The Cyber Car also offers bespoke services, such as servicing, car valet and roadside assistance.

The first Cyber Car fitted models will arrive this year, with several manufacturers already at an advanced stage of integrating Pirelli’s technology into their own systems. The next evolution will be the Cyber Tire system: the tire of the future, based on a technical platform capable of collecting even more data, transmitting information to the car’s on-board systems with every wheel rotation. While this technology isn’t on sale yet, it is already in action on the Ferrari FXXK: the 1000-horsepower development hypercar for track use only.

THE EVOLUTION OF PIRELLI CYBER TECHNOLOGIES. Cyber Car is the latest application from Pirelli’s Cyber Technologies platform launched in 2002, with the aim of providing maximum integration between tires, cars and drivers. Cyber Car follows the Cyber Fleet system designed for fleets and Pirelli Connesso system for everyday drivers.

The tire is the sole point of contact for the car with the road surface, therefore it can collect extensive information that’s crucial to a safer, more efficient drive; both in terms of environmental sustainability and cost savings for the driver. Pirelli’s Cyber systems are all based on a sensor placed inside the tire, which is then connected to the Pirelli Cloud. This sensor, weighing just a few grams, monitors the operating status of every tire and transmits the data to an electronic control unit. The information collected is delivered to the Pirelli Connesso app, or in the case of Cyber Car, to the car’s on-board systems and an app. Pirelli Cyber Technologies use specific systems to talk directly to the driver (Pirelli Connesso), to fleet managers (Cyber Fleet), or to car manufacturers and drivers simultaneously (Cyber Car). These systems function equally for both electric and traditional cars.

PIRELLI HOMOLOGATIONS ON SHOW. Many new stars at the Geneva Motor Show will be fitted with Pirelli tires, such as the Ferrari 488 Pista and Lamborghini Urus, as well as Italdesign’s second creation: the exclusive Zerouno Roadster. Latest-generation models such as the Audi A6 and Audi A7 Sportback, the new Bentley Bentayga V8 and hybrid, BMW X4, electric Jaguar I-Pace and McLaren Senna will also showcase Pirelli tires in Geneva. Pirelli tires also feature in the Aston Martin, Porsche and Mercedes stands.

PIRELLI CONNESSO. Pirelli presented the Pirelli Connesso system in Geneva a year ago. This technology can send information to the driver about the tire’s performance via an app. While Cyber Car is intended as original equipment, designed to work with integrated on-board systems, Pirelli Connesso is aimed at the aftermarket. The Connesso app provides services such as contacting the nearest authorized Pirelli dealer and booking a tire change.

COLOR EDITION. Pirelli’s colored P Zero tires will star in Geneva once more, having already been launched on the market in sizes of 19 inches and higher. These allow customers to personalize their tires aesthetically. The Color Edition is available in the red, yellow, green, blue, orange, silver and white base colors; plus other personalized color options. Pirelli’s exclusive technology and materials allows this, creating a protective barrier to keep colors bright and pristine throughout the tire’s life, without affecting performance.

PZERO WORLD AT GENEVA. The Pirelli area at the Geneva motor show has been designed to recreate the atmosphere of PZero World, which is Pirelli’s flagship store concept currently operating in Los Angeles and Monaco. The PZero World stores combines a refined atmosphere, cutting edge services, Pirelli Design fashion accessories, Pirelli calendar images, Pirelli Moto products and PZero Velo, Pirelli’s new line dedicated to sporting bicycles. PZero Velo also includes a Color Edition tire being launched at the Geneva show.
