Kate Bush Returns To The Stage For The First Time in 35 Years

26 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT

Kate Bush, most famous for her songs “Running Up That Hill” and “Don’t Give Up,” had her first live performance in 35 years on Tuesday to unanimously positive reviews.

#KateBush: Singer Returns After 35 Years

Bush put on a dramatic stage show at London’s Eventim Apollo venue—involving surrealist sets, monsters and paper airplanes. David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas and the upcoming The Bone Clocks, who is known for his unreal concepts and imagery, helped Bush develop the visuals and themes apparently in the show.

Her 35-year absence has long been contributed to several factors. She wanted to tend to her then-young family, she was a known perfectionist who wanted everything just right, and early on in her (first and final) tour in 1979, her lighting director fell to his death.

In the United States, Bush was known for her single “Running Up That Hill” which received a resurgence in »

Vacca worked as an instructor at the Bullets and Burgers shooting range near Dolan Springs, Arizona, and was teaching a young girl how to fire an Uzi when the accident occurred Monday morning. Video captured by the girl’s parents shows the 9-year-old effectively firing the Uzi in single-shot mode, but when Vacca switched the firearm to automatic, the recoil led to an involuntary movement of the gun, and Vacca was shot in the head.

“Vacca was standing next to the girl while he was instructing her how to use [the] weapon when the accident happened. Further investigation determined the girl pulled the trigger on the automatic Uzi, he recoil sent the gun over her head and the victim was shot,” reads a statement from the Sheriff’s Office. »

26 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT

Tony Soprano survived the final, fatal-seeming scene in HBO’s hit mob series Sopranos, according to creator David Chase.

Tony Soprano Lived

Chase finally revealed Tony’s fate in an interview with Vox writer Martha P. Nochimson. When Nochimson asked the question, Chase’s initial response was to ask with exasperation, "Why are we talking about this?" After Nochimson said it was mere curiosity, he shook his head “no,” adding, “No, he isn’t.” Other than confirming that Tony lived, Chase offered no further details.

When the Sopranos' finale aired in June 2007, there was widespread debate about what became of Tony, the series protagonist brought to life by the late James Gandolfini. Some thought he lived, maybe long enough to get brought to prison, but the vast majority believed that he was killed.

In the last scene, Tony is out to dinner at a popular restaurant, sitting at a table »
