The Muppets Cover Queen, Bowie, Willie Nelson, & More At The Hollywood Bowl

first_imgLast summer, Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, the band from The Muppets, made their live music festival debut at Outside Lands. This weeknd, the make-believe band performed their first full length concert series at the Hollywood Bowl in California. “The Muppets Take the Bowl,” a nod to the classic 1984 film, featured Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Animal, Sam Eagle, Pepé the King Prawn and the entire Muppet cast – some of who have not been seen in over 35 years – along with Thomas Wilkins, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.The three-night run was a great success for The Muppets, and featured a special guest appearance from Paul Williams for a duet with Kermit the Frog on “Rainbow Connection,” which Williams co-wrote for the 1979 The Muppet Movie. Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) also joined in for “Rainbow Connection,” following his vocal performance in “Happy Feet” earlier in the set. The setlist also included covers of “Suffragette City” by David Bowie, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and “On The Road Again” by Willie Nelson. Each show culminated with a huge firework display.Thanks to YouTube users Synthetik Films and Chelsey Young, you can watch clips from The Muppets at The Hollywood Bowl below:last_img read more

Bag one – or three – plots that make up this Hamilton family estate

first_img A peaceful nook to chill out in.The four-bedroom house totalling 484 sq m also features three bathrooms, two study nooks, a large living and dining area, and a sparkling 3m-deep swimming pool.On plot 21 the 228sq m house was renovated to a similar standard and features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a laundry, study and double garage.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours agoMrs Andrews said the privacy of the estate is what attracted them to the address. “It’s such a beautiful site and so secure. You own the whole gully below so no one can ever build you out, no one can take those views away from you,” she said. Loads of room for special occasions.The couple, who both work in healthcare, moved in to number 17 with their three boys, now aged 17, 13 and 11, while Sally’s parents moved in to the house at number 21. Having acquired the additional plots the Andrews decided to delay building their dream mansion while they carried out extensive renovations on the two existing houses. At number 17, Mrs Andrews said: “We basically ripped the back off the house and added an outdoor kitchen, stairs, terraces and decks.” They also dismantled the facade and installed a carport, adding a further two parking spaces to an existing double garage.“We also built a private courtyard with a pergola-style roof so it can be used year-round. There’s a stone fireplace in there too, which makes it such a lovely space to be in winter, or summer.” Record-breaking Brisbane home sells again How to push through the goat’s cheese curtain Tasteful living. Stunning outlook.A decade on and the property’s gardens are a lush, tropical oasis with mature trees, a sports oval and a large Asian-inspired pavilion with an in-built kitchen — the perfect place for parties and entertaining. “It’s a truly lovely garden. Every blade of grass, every tree was planted by us. My dad used to hand-water the plants every day to try and keep them alive. We’ve put a lot of work into it and will miss the space very much.”While developing 19 Ludlow St, where the grand family mansion was to be its centrepiece, an opportunity arose for the Andrews to snap up the two adjoining blocks — first, number 21 and later number 19 — giving the family a rare parcel of land spanning almost 3000sq m across Hamilton Hill.center_img Looking out to the Brisbane River and Bulimba.While a recent change in family circumstances has forced the Andrews to abandon their plans to fully redevelop the estate (the family have moved to an already renovated estate in Kalinga, which they bought at auction in November for $5.15 million), they hope any prospective buyers of Ludlow St will see their dreams for the property through.“It’s a romantic notion, I know, but I would love to have a buyer come in who continues with our family vision for the place. Someone who will carry on and build a really big mansion, where multiple generations can live and enjoy the gardens and the privacy the property offers,” Mrs Andrews said. “Multigenerational living is a growing trend. Families living together is what people always used to do and it’s what we’ve always done.”17, 19 and 21 Ludlow St are for sale as one estate or as individual lots. The land is zoned as low to medium-density residential and plot 19 has development application approval for a five-storey house, which took the Andrews years to get through council and the courts.The listing will be auctioned on February 26, if not sold prior. 17-21 Ludlow Street, Hamilton, is high end living at its best.When Sally and Steve Andrews bought 19 Ludlow St in Hamilton, with the intention to build their dream mansion, there was little to admire.The 1745sq m block in the affluent inner-northeastern suburb of Brisbane was overgrown, with scrub and bush obscuring coveted views of the river below and the city in the distance. “It was terrible,” Mrs Andrews said. “There was nothing we could do with it, so we flattened it and started again.” MORE: Inside QLD’s mega mansionslast_img read more
