The Eagles & Chris Stapleton
@Minute Maid Park
Friday 6/15/2018 7:00 PM
The Eagles are one of the world's best-selling bands in history, having sold more than 150 million records—100 million in the U.S. alone—including 42 million copies of Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and 32 million copies of Hotel California. Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) was the best selling album of the 20th century in the U.S. They are the fifth-highest-selling music act and the highest-selling American band in U.S. history.
It all started in 1972, when the band released their debut album, Eagles,which spawned three top 40 singles: "Take It Easy", "Witchy Woman", and "Peaceful Easy Feeling". Their next album, Desperado (1973), was less successful than the first, only reaching number 41 on the charts; neither of its singles reached the top 40. However, the album does contain what would go on to be two of the band's most popular tracks: "Desperado" and "Tequila Sunrise". The band went on to push out, On the Border in 1974, adding guitarist Don Felder as the fifth member midway through the recording of the album. The album generated two top 40 singles: "Already Gone" and their first number one, "Best of My Love".

With Barnum and Bailey Circus ending, circus entertainment seems to becoming less and less of America's spending entertainment dollar, but the Universoul Circus contiues.
The UniverSoul Circus was founded in 1994.
Recruiting, training and production began in 1993. The first performance took place in 1994 in the parking lot of Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. The first season of operations brought formidable debt upon the organization. By 1997 the circus tour grew to 10 cities, 19 cities in 1999, 31 cities in 2000, and 32 cities in 2005. A tour of South Africa, was their first international destination in 2001. Its now 25-years for Universoul Circus.

The Lilies of the Field
@Miller Outdoor Theatre
June 15th-16th, 2018 8:30 PM
It was 1962 when William Barrett wrote his novel "The Lilies of the Field". The novel was based on a true story involving the Sisters of Walburga.
This is how the story goes:
Homer Smith, just out of the US Army, buys a station wagon in Seattle, equips it for sleeping in and sets out to see the West. Having learned many skills in the army, he picks up jobs as an itinerant handyman/jack-of-all-trades.
One morning, he comes to a derelict-looking farm in a valley west of the Rocky Mountains. He sees several women working on a fence, very ineptly. The women, who speak German but very little English, appear to be Catholic nuns. He offers to do a small repair job.
