On Friday (Oct. 25) in Las Vegas a Lady Gaga impersonator was mistaken at a charity event for the real thing.

When attendees of a national conference for Women of Global Change which held at The Strat Hotel and Casino saw the pop superstar stroll onto the stage in a matching wide-brim hat and pink pantsuit, they were shocked. Then she sat at a grand piano and performed some of her biggest hits, including “Million Reasons.” and “You and I”

But they were actually watching a Lady Gaga impersonator Tierney Allen who performs regularly in Legends in Concert, a tribute review at The Tropicana which also features Pat Benatar and Freddie Mercury lookalike/soundalikes.

Allen says to The Hollywood Reporter that she had no intention of misleading the audience to think she was really Gaga. Allen says that what happened is she was booked to perform for Women of Global Change at a private event. They always tell the guests to make sure the clients know she is not the real thing.

At the end of her performance, the confusion began when Aurea McGarry the event emcee, told the crowd that Allen was in fact the real thing and was not an impersonator.

Allen recalls that she thought that’s not good. She immediately started sweating. She must have looked like a deer in the headlights.

While visiting the Park MGM Allen was once swarmed by fans before in full Gaga regalia. The “Poker Face” singer was performing there  and she has been mistaken for the artist. She decided to just “go with it” til she could get off the stage.

Allen says she thought McGarry wanted to give the audience a thrill and got swept up in the moment though she assumed the emcee knew that she was a fake very well.

Vinyl record label, Gearbox Records, has announced the Automatic II turntable, targeted at novice and experienced vinyl users alike.

Gearbox Records was established in 2009 and has cultivated a reputation for producing great quality vinyl releases. It then struck up a collaboration with the Austrian hi-fi brand Pro-Ject Audio, resulting in the original and distinctive Automatic turntable.

The MkII (£549) is a similar affair, taking its design cues from Dieter Ram’s 1955 Braun PC 3 SV record player. It’s a meld of the old and the new with transparent plinth allowing users to see the internal workings of the deck. There’s also Bluetooth connectivity for streaming vinyl wirelessly, as well as Gearbox’s music-recognition technology that allows tracks to be added from your record collection to your Spotify playlist.

It carries a built-in valve phono stage, designed and tuned for moving magnet (MM) cartridges such as the pre-fitted Ortofon OM10. Plug the turntable into any line input and you’ll be ready to listen to your collection straight from the box.

Design-wise, the Automatic II uses an ultra-low-mass tonearm with adjustable counterweight and sports a 7-inch glass platter with support for 33rpm and 45rpm speeds. The belt drive has been upgraded from the original, with the second-gen version using an aluminum pulley for better speed stability.

The electronics have also been upgraded for better performance, and the app – which can be used for track recognition and adding to your Spotify playlist – is according to Gearbox, “slicker and easier to use”.

The Automatic II will be available at Amazon and an exclusive showroom at Spiritland Headphone Bar in London. Those who make it to the Spiritland venue can have a go with the turntable, with Gearbox reimbursing the travel expenses of anyone who purchases an Automatic II by up to £50.

Appointments for test-driving the turntable are available on Mondays and Tuesdays. Email shop@spiritland.com or phone +44 203 178 5706 to book.

The Gearbox Automatic II turntable is on sale in October.

Woodstock Festival is a 3-day pop rock concert. The festival became the most popular music event in history and the symbol of the hip-hop movement in the 1960s.

Initially, the festival was organized by 4 men. The original idea was to create a concert to raise money to build a recording studio for young musicians in Woodstock, New York.

At first, the organization had many difficulties. Almost everyone did not want to see any hippie or drug addicts participating in the concert at their original location, Woodstock, so the selection of the venue did not go as planned initially. A difficult task for the organizers is that about 2 months before the concert is performed, the venue must be found.

Fortunately, the organizers found a 600-acre dairy farm in Bethel, New York – where they could hold the show. Because of changing locations, all preparations were not completed on time.

The organizers expect about 50,000 people to attend the concert but when the concert day comes closer, the organizers will know that the number of participants in the event will exceed the 50,000 expected number. A few days before the concert took place, hundreds of thousands of pop rock fans from all over the world were on their way to Woodstock. On the day of the performance, the organizers were unable to control the crowd and fans rushed into the performance area. An estimated 300,000 to 500,000 people were present at the concert.

This event caused a huge traffic jam. Thousands of people have left their vehicles on the road to walk to the performance area.

On Friday, August 15, 1969, the show was officially started. Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie and other folk artists performed on the first day. On Saturday, Santana, Janis Joplin, band The Who and other bands starred on the stage.

Most people start leaving on Sunday. Jimi Hendrix was the last artist to perform on stage, when there were only about 25,000 spectators left.

A rain turned the performance area into a big puddle of mud. However, the Woodstock music festival was still successful despite the organizers facing a debt of more than a million dollars later.

Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande will be the biggest names at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards while BTS and BLACKPINK first appeared.

As soon as all nominations have been announced, the audience knows that Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande will be the focus at the MTV Video Music Awards Ceremony 2019 with 10 nominations for each female artist. This season promises to be extremely dramatic with nominations for stunned names.

Ariana Grande with a hard working year brought about 10 nominations. Taylor Swift, though only moved with the “Lover” album by debuting in front of two singles, also picked up 10 nominations this year.

Ariana Grande get 3 nominations, while Taylor Swift receive 2 nominations in the 4 most important categories in “Big Four” (4 main awards).

On top of that, “Rookie” Lil Nas with his big hit “Old Town Road” also covered with 8 categories. This big hit is still an unbeaten monster on the Billboard Hot 100 chart during 16 weeks. Phenomenon Billie Eilish is also surprising to be nominated to 9 categories. Billie Eilish has an excellent debut album that is popular with both audiences and professionals.

Billie Eilish and Lil Nas will face in the “Best New Artist” nomination. This will be a tough decision for judges and audience. Both are very young artists but their talents have truly conquered audiences worldwide.

This year is also the first year the awards ceremony was held to introduce the public to the “Best Kpop” category – honoring the best Kpop product of the year with the participation of Kpop celebrities: BTS, BLACKPINK , EXO, NCT 127, Monsta X, … Of which, BTS also brought four nominations.

K-Pop is a huge music business with global revenues worth over $ 30 million in 2009, and this number doubled in 2010, according to a South Korean website. Even so, entertainment industry leaders are also very greedy with plans to bring Korean stars to Japan, the US and Europe.

Kim Young-min, CEO of pop management company SM Entertainment (the unit that created two stars BoA and Super Junior) in Seoul, said he said Asia is K-pop‘s biggest market, even exceed American. Girls Generation and Kara are said to be two major groups that contribute greatly to promoting K-pop in Japan.

In Japan – a country that is proud to produce and export its magical pop culture, the Korean entertainment industry is slowly taking over the country’s music and film market. Not only Korean movies appear regularly on TV, but in later times K-Pop groups like Girls Generation and KARA also broke record sales while appearing flooded on peak Japanese television.

The Korean entertainment industry, especially the pop music scene, spreads to many Asian countries but is particularly booming in the land of the rising sun because Koreans know how to exploit what the Japanese music industry avoids far away for years. According to the latest data from the Korean government, the country has exported drama and music worth $ 117 to Japan since 2010.

Therefore, Japan is considered the largest export market for Korean pop culture, with nearly 40% market share. Since Korean dramas were first broadcast in Japan in the early 2000s, feature films and then K-pop have become a trend of artistic enjoyment among young people in the land of the rising sun. Similarly, Japanese pop culture (called J-pop) also began to take off in Korea after an official ban was removed in South Korea in 1998. Korean cultural flows flow into Japan. It is also controversial in this country, and in 2011 many people took to the streets outside the headquarters of the Fuji TV Network in Tokyo to oppose the broadcast of so many Korean movies.

From June 2016, Forbes magazine published an article by author Melissa Daniel about this trend. In particular, Melissa not only predicted livestream concert will become an inevitable trend of the music industry but also affirmed: “If artists and brands know how to use livestream form effectively, they have It is easy to reach a huge public and customer base “.

Global trend

The California Roots music and arts festival 2018 attracted about 30,000 attendees in three days, but when it was livestream through LiveList technology technical support, it achieved “huge” views up to 9.5 million.

Many of those “views” directly commented on their immediate emotions and did not forget to promise “to find ways to be available next year”.

While attracting tens of thousands of spectators to attend live every day, the California Roots Music and Arts Festival is still full of its audience in livestream form with impressive results: 9.5 million views in three days of festivals – Photo: FOH

According to Chris Watkins, technical expert at Audiotree TV, today the public is always open-minded and ready to seriously watch livestream music if it is a well-produced program with good sound quality, allowing them to interact directly with artists or at least other audiences.

“In the past 10 years, music on traditional television has lost its attraction. Along with the dizzying development of social networks, music has also gradually become a kind of community experience.

Now, thanks to broadband Internet, livestream concerts easily turn viewers from passive into active, can comfortably communicate with each other right on the show, even their opinions can reach the ears. manufacturer or artist to make timely adjustments. These things make them feel more comfortable and excited, “said Chris Watkins.

So, it is not too difficult to understand now, regardless of the large number of music festivals such as small music shows from individual studios, all the livestreams are all around the world.
