Sting for the Weekend

The Beatles Live at Shea Stadium for the Weekend

Quote for the Week

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, “The Beatles did.”

The Warning for the Weekend

John Lennon for the Weekend

Sarah McLachlan Live for the Weekend

U2 for the Weekend

Van Halen for the Weekend

A Queen Blast from the Past for the Weekend

Some Slightly Belated Tom Petty for the Weekend
