Update: Earlier this year, the Foo Fighters announced that their Van Tour would would include a May 18 stop at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Now, the band has postponed the entire tour.

The press release announcing the postponement included a message from band leader Dave Grohl.

"Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn’t even postpone a show when my goddamn leg was falling off?" it read. "Well… playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another… We fuckin’ love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check shit. The album is done, and it’s fuckin' killer. The lights and stage are in the trucks, ready to go. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise. Now go wash your hands."

The tour's April dates have been bumped to December. No word yet on when the rescheduled Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse date will take place. ​

Original Post 2/18/2020:
"Congratulations: You’re old! You’ve been going to see Foo Fighters shows for 25 years now!” reads the press release announcing the band’s upcoming tour commemorating its silver anniversary in some of the same cities where the first FF shows took place in 1995.

The tour includes a May 18 stop at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

Comedian and science podcaster Shane Mauss (pictured) will bring his inventive Stand Up Science Tour back to Cleveland in April.

For the shows, Mauss does a bit of stand-up at the event's start, and his special local academic guests then talk about science-related topics.

For the upcoming show at Hilarities, he's recruited Dr. Kristen Lukas, Director of Conservation & Science at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and an adjunct professor in biology at Case Western Reserve University, and Dr. Jeff Dean, a professor of biology at Cleveland State where his research focuses on the lateral line sense of African Clawed Frogs.

After the performances, Mauss and guests return to the stage for an interactive discussion and Q&A with the audience.

“It's funnier than a TED Talk and smarter than your usual night of comedy,” reads a press release about the event.

Hilarities will host the show. It takes place at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 11.

Tickets cost $18 in advance, $25 at the door.

Bookhouse Brewing, a small Ohio City brewery and taproom that focuses on “innovative and approachable beers and ciders,” has teamed up with Cleveland Opera Theatre to present Ballads and Brews, an upcoming event that will feature operatic arias and duets paired with specific Bookhouse beers.

"Opera is NOT just a fat lady with horns, and what better way to find out than to hear it in a brewery?" reads a press release about the collaboration that convinces the event will be worth checking out.

Just the Cleveland Browns' Jamie Gillan Booming Punts in Lincoln Park in Tremont

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2020 at 12:32 PM

There are plenty of reasons to dislike the Browns. Punter Jamie Gillan is not one of them.

The Scottish Hammer was booming punts in Tremont's Lincoln Park yesterday, and after camping out at the Flying Monkey to drink while he awaited word last year on whether he made the team or not, and utilizing the beautiful public park this week, all that's left for Gillan to complete the Tremont trifecta of respectability is to Instagram the latest book he picked up at Visible Voice.

Indians Home Opener Tickets are Still Not Sold Out

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2020 at 12:25 PM

For 27 seasons, the Cleveland Indians sold out their Home Opener game the first day tickets were on sale sometimes within mere minutes. This Monday, however, when the tickets for the 2020 season hit the market, they did not sell out.

As of Friday afternoon tickets are still available on the Indians actual website, and not just secondary markets.

A number of factors could be behind the lag in sales this year. First, the Home Opener is March 26, barely a week after St. Patrick's Day (aka Super Tuesday). That's incredibly early for fans to watch a game of baseball. And, as it's Cleveland, the forecast for the game could be anywhere from 20 to 60 degrees. Also, the Tribe's inability to reach the playoffs last year may mean that some fair-weather fans aren't as inclined to shell out money to watch the team play in the inevitable cold.

Yet as the day is essentially a city-wide holiday, the Home Opener will probably, eventually, sell out. So come March 26, expect Progressive Field to be packed to the gills with drunk, hopeful fans watching the Tribe take on the Detroit Tigers at 1:10 p.m.

Tickets are currently running between $57 and $225.

For those interested in attending any of the warmer home games offered later in the 2020 season, there are still plenty of tickets available and you can find them all right here.

Check out everything we saw at last year's Home Opener right here.
