Check out a few more videos from The Who & Roger Waters’ final night, as well as their full setlists below.The Who: Roger Waters: Classic rock fans were treated to two amazing performances last night, as Desert Trip came to a close with sets from The Who and Roger Waters. Each artist dove into their repertoires, bringing out hit songs from all eras of their tenure. Any rock music appreciator was certain to be singing along the whole time, basking in the powerful music that both The Who and Pink Floyd have shared over the years.The night started with The Who, fronted by founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. With a stellar backing band that includes bassist Pino Palladino, drummer Zak Starkey (son of Ringo Starr), keyboardist John Bundrick and rhythm guitarist Simon Townshend (the younger brother of Pete), The Who seemed to lock in early with their earliest hit, “I Can’t Explain.” The show took fans on a saga through the band’s career, including segments of songs from the band’s two rock operas, Quadrophenia and Tommy. They ended with two of their most energetic and well-known songs, “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”Watch those two final songs below, courtesy of Fake Fan. Next up was Roger Waters, who had been warming up for Desert Trip with setlists spanning the career of Pink Floyd. His performance at Desert Trip followed suit, opening with the famed “Speak To Me/Breathe” introduction of Dark Side Of The Moon. Waters would ultimately play the entirety of Dark Side during his performance, excluding the instrumentals “On The Run” and “Any Colour You Like”, mixed in with other classic numbers through the band’s career. He played the majority of Wish You Were Here and Animals, as well as tracks from Meddle, A Saucerful Of Secrets and, of course, The Wall.Watch some Dark Side highlights, courtesy of Fake Fan on YouTube.

El Gobernador Wolf conmemora al Juneteenth como el día nacional de la libertad

first_img Español,  Holidays,  Press Release Este viernes Pennsylvania celebra el primer aniversario de la declaración del 19 de junio como el Día Nacional de la Libertad Juneteenth en Pennsylvania. El Gobernador Wolf está alentando a los residentes de Pennsylvania a reflexionar sobre la importancia del feriado estatal y la necesidad permanente de una sociedad justa y equitativa.“Este Juneteenth, las personas de todo Pennsylvania y del mundo celebrarán este importante día de la independencia”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Es un momento para honrar la historia afroamericana y reflexionar sobre la manera en que cada uno de nosotros puede promover la igualdad, la libertad y la justicia para todas las personas”.El 19 de junio de 2019, el Gobernador Wolf firmó una legislación que designaba al 19 de junio como el “Día Nacional de la Libertad Juneteenth” en Pennsylvania. Juneteenth, un acrónimo de junio y diecinueve, marca al 19 de junio de 1865, cuando los soldados de la Unión llegaron a Galveston, Texas, el punto más extremo del sur, con noticias sobre fin de la Guerra Civil. Los esclavos no sabían que habían sido liberados más de dos años antes cuando el Presidente Lincoln firmó la Proclamación de la Emancipación, o que el General Confederado Robert E. Lee se había rendido en Virginia dos meses atrás.“En las últimas semanas, personas de toda la nación se han unido para exigir el fin de la opresión y el racismo sistémicos de los afroamericanos”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “La libertad para todos no se realiza plenamente hasta que cada persona es verdaderamente libre. Este Juneteenth tenemos la oportunidad de unirnos contra la injusticia y crear un cambio duradero que haga de Pennsylvania y nuestra nación un lugar mejor para todos”.En conmemoración de Juneteenth, el 19 de junio será un feriado no laboral especial para los empleados estatales bajo la jurisdicción del Gobernador.View this information in English.
