Bon Jovi; Elvis Presley 1935-1977

主辦單位理想國演藝(Live Nation)引述邦喬飛的看法指出,追加在台灣演出,原因是台灣是第一個亞洲地區,演唱會門票率先售磬的國家;熟知內情人士則認為,Bon Jovi顯然有意藉此讓中國難堪,並加碼台灣。

Bon Jovi觸"雷區"中國巡演遭當局叫停

原定於下週在中國展開巡演的美國著名搖滾歌手Bon Jovi演唱會被迫取消。原因是他幾年前在台灣的一次演出,無意間挑戰了中國當局的政治敏感度。



(德國之聲中文網)英國《金融時報》消息稱,美國老牌搖滾樂隊Bon Jovi(邦喬維)突然取消了下週將在北京和上海舉行的兩場演唱會。演唱會的票價在480元到3880元不等。

文章稱,Bon Jovi無意間挑戰了中國當局的政治敏感度。報導援引知情者消息稱,中國文化部在對Bon Jovi進行資​​格審查時發現,2010年他在台灣舉行的演唱會上,曾使用達賴喇嘛的照片。因此叫停演唱會。

登上當局“黑名單”的外國藝人

今年被迫取消中國演唱會的還包括:冰島歌手比約克Bjork和美國流行樂團Maroon 5。原因是一名樂隊成員在社交媒體Twitter上向西藏精神領袖達賴喇嘛祝賀生日。

中國當局將達賴喇嘛視為"分裂分子"和"披著僧侶外衣的狼",並指責他不斷鼓吹西藏獨立。

幾年來,中國當局不斷阻止那些被當局視為達賴喇嘛支持者的外國藝術家、學者和政治領導人前往中國。

《金融時報》在文章中回顧,2012年英國首相卡梅倫因會見達賴喇嘛招致中國當局的不滿,此後中英外交一度陷入冰凍期。


知情者還透露,週二(9月8日),音樂會主辦方試圖說服當局對音樂會"網開一面",但當局改變主意的機會渺茫。

為抓住中國樂迷的心,Bon Jovi此行還苦練了多首中國流行歌曲,如《月亮代表我的心》和崔健的《一無所有》等。

如今尚不清楚的是,已出售的音樂會門票是否會退款。

Elvis Presley: A Life (A Penguin Life) Paperback – July 31, 2007







by Bobbie Ann Mason
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Penguin Books; Reprint edition (July 31, 2007) 貓王 北京:三聯,2014


A vibrant, sympathetic portrait of the once and future king of rock ?n? roll by the award-winning author of Shiloh and In Country

To this clear-eyed portrait of the first rock ?n? roll superstar, Bobbie Ann Mason brings a novelist?s insight and the empathy of a fellow Southerner who, from the first time she heard his voice on the family radio, knew that Elvis was ?one of us.? Elvis Presley deftly braids the mythic and human aspects of his story, capturing both the charismatic, boundary-breaking singer who reveled in his celebrity and the soft-spoken, working-class Southern boy who was fatally unprepared for his success. The result is a riveting, tragic book that goes to the heart of the American dream.







Written by fellow Southerner Mason (In Country; Clear Springs), this abbreviated biography suffers fromthe series' length limitation but makes up for it by hitting the significant points. Mason credits Elvis with inventing rock and youth culture and "[puncturing] the balloon of 1950s serenity and conformity." She posits that the result of his stint in the army "was to erase his rock-and-roll rebel image and turn him into a mainstream all-American boy next door," and that in 1969, after almost a decade spent making bad films, "he was genuinely invigorated by making good music again." It's when Mason offers her insight into Southern culture that the biography turns superficial, like her attempt to contextualize the bloated figure of the drug-addled singer's late years by noting that "in the deep-fried South, his shape was a familiar sight, typical of his age group." On the other hand, she does intrigue, stating that Elvis "was innocently authentic, but he craved the inauthentic, as country people, who are so close-uncomfortably close-to what is starkly real, often do." Unfortunately, Mason doesn't have the room to explain because she has to get back to zooming through the rest of Elvis's life before her space is up. As such, this intro to Elvis will be useful, but is still no substitute for Peter Guralnick's definitive two-volume biography (Last Train to Memphis, Careless Love), which Mason praises in her acknowledgments along with many other sources.

A 1960 article in LIFE quotes Elvis on his experience in the Army: “If I say the Army made a man of me...it would give the impression I was an idiot before I was drafted. I wasn’t exactly that.” The King, who spent two years in the service, would have turned 80 today.
