The hard rock event featured performances from Foo Fighters, System of a Down, Lamb of God, Action Bronson, Tom Morello, and many more. Day one of the weekend event took place on May 17th, nearly marking the two-year anniversary of Chris Cornell’s death by suicide in spring 2017.

The Man, Vic MensaThe surprise sit-in came during Morello’s Friday afternoon set when the Prophets of Rage guitarist was using that axe of his to put together a medley of music from his days in Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave–for which Cornell was the singer. After taking fans on an instrumental ride with themes from “Bulls On Parade”, “Guerrilla Radio”, and “Sleep Now In The Fire”, Morello and his backing band began to play the opening of “Like A Stone” when a smiling Tankian could be seen walking to the stage to join in on the fun with a microphone in hand.The two then went on to play out the majority of the 2002 rock ballad, including Morello’s trademark solo, before Tankian left the stage to spirited applause.

Ireland says rise in COVID-19 reproduction rate ‘a serious concern’

first_imgTopics : A rise in the COVID-19 infection rate in Ireland is a “serious concern” but the country has not yet seen a significant resurgence in infections outside of identified clusters, a leading health official said on Thursday.Ireland, which for several weeks had one of the lowest infection rates in Europe, has seen a spike since last Thursday and has identified a number of clusters of infections in meat plants and accommodation for asylum seekers.The reproduction rate, or the number of people who become infected from each positive case, has increased to 1.8 from 1.3 a week ago, Professor Philip Nolan, the chairman of the country’s Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group, told a news briefing. “A reproduction number of almost 2 is a serious concern, and although we have not yet seen a significant increase in community transmission, there is a significant risk this could develop over the coming days and weeks,” Nolan said.Ireland reported 69 cases on Thursday and the average infection rate has more than doubled in recent weeks to around 50 per day. It also reported five deaths on Thursday after six days with no deaths.Acting Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn said half of all recent cases had come from three adjoining counties – Kildare, Laois and Offaly – and that a cluster of 60 cases from the counties were set to be added to Friday’s numbers.He warned people from those counties to be particularly careful and said he could not rule out specific restrictions being imposed on those three counties.last_img read more
