7 Shows To See This Week: Made In America, Motley Crue with Alice Cooper, Journey, and More



WATCH: Shirtless Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff Reunite for “Summertime”

Will Smith’s oldest son Trey (aka DJ AcE) was performing in Las Vegas this weekend with DJ Jazzy Jeff, when his dad came on stage to surprise the audience with a performance of his and Jazzy Jeff’s 1991 hit “Summertime.”

“We haven’t been on stage in forever,” Smith told DJ Jazzy Jeff, before he pulls up his shirt to show the fans his abs and tears into the song. Eventually he just takes his shirt completely off, and he doesn’t look too bad for a 45-year-old pops.

Check out the video above (song starts around 2:10), and one from later in the day, when he dances to Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache (Jump On It), below.

It’s Time for Weird Al to Receive Kennedy Center Honors

Now that the hubub from Weird Al Yankovic’s eight straight days of new music videos has subsided somewhat, I’d like to make a suggestion that is completely serious and in no way jokey:

I’d like to see Weird Al receive the Kennedy Center Honors.

You should know the honors if you don’t: CBS usually broadcasts the show during Christmas week, when nothing else is on, and the event pays tribute to America’s greatest living artists. They sit in a box seat with the president and everybody loves them. You get a mix of high-brow culture (Yo-Yo Ma was a recent inductee) with stuff that’s maybe more middlebrow (David Letterman). It’s not the kind of place you typically find song parodies.

But that’s OK, because Weird Al is anything but typical: He’s been doing this stuff almost 40 years: His first song, “Belevedere Cruisin’” — about his family’s beloved car — was played on the great Dr. Demento show in 1976.

Atlantic City Offers “Free” Blake Shelton Concert, Garages Charge $50 for Parking

Ballys Parking Header

Oh, Atlantic City: You are never going to learn, are you?

Last evening, country music star Blake Shelton offered what was billed as a “free concert” between Caesars Pier and Central Pier. The catch? Local casinos, including Bally’s and Caesars (the two closest to the concert and, arguably, the logical choice for most concert attendees), charged a steep $50 to park in their lots. The normal price? $5. Read more »
