Tool Will Headline The Governors Ball Music Festival In 2017 [Report]

first_imgTool fans have been waiting patiently as their favorite band works on the highly-anticipated follow up album to 10,000 Days (2006). Tool has toured very infrequently over the last few years, though they did play a handful of performance in 2016. It seems that they’ll continue that trend with more scattered performances in 2017, according to a report from the reputable source, Consequence of Sound.CoS is reporting that Tool will be among the headliners for this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival, which is set to take place in New York, NY from June 2nd through the 4th. This would be Tool’s first New York performance in 11 years! Consequence of Sound also has a great track record for reporting information before it is released, as they correctly predicted LCD Soundsystem’s reunion and many major festival headliners over the last few years.Despite all of that, Governors Ball is keeping their lips sealed on the subject. Their only response to these reports: “The full Governors Ball lineup will be announced early next year, at which point tickets will also go on sale.”If Tool does headline at Governors Ball, this of course raises questions about the band’s future plans. Will they be releasing the new album next year? Will there be more tour dates? While this remains to be seen, we’re very optimistic about this exciting news!last_img read more

Lakers officially hire Frank Vogel, bring an end to scrutinized coaching search

first_imgIt’s never quite over until the ink is dry.In that sense, the Lakers’ coaching search truly ended Monday afternoon, as the team officially announced what had been known for more than 48 hours – it has hired Frank Vogel to be the 27th head coach in its history. The hiring had been anticipated since Saturday afternoon, when a team source confirmed that Vogel would be hired to the Southern California News Group.“We are excited to add Frank Vogel as the next head coach of the Lakers,” General Manager Rob Pelinka said in a team-issued statement. “Coach Vogel has a proven track record of success in the NBA playoffs, and he reflects the core qualities we were looking for in a head coach – including, detailed game preparation, extreme hard work, and holding players accountable to the highest basketball standards.”The hiring announcement marked the first public statement by the upper levels of the organization in more than a month, when the Lakers announced Luke Walton would not return as head coach after a three-year stint. The Lakers’ top officials have been largely tight-lipped since April 9 when team president Magic Johnson resigned – he has yet to be officially replaced.

He most recently coached two years with the Orlando Magic, finishing with a 54-110 record.The Lakers will charge Vogel to find a way back to the postseason following a six-year playoff drought, the longest in franchise history. He’ll be expected to find a breakthrough where his predecessor, Walton (98-148 record), could not. He’ll have the advantages – and the challenges – of coaching LeBron James through his current contract, which runs through the next three seasons (final year is a player option0. He’ll also likely inherit promising young players from recent drafts, including Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, with the task of molding them into pieces of a contending squad.Vogel has been to the postseason five times in eight seasons as a head coach. He’s twice reached the conference finals, contending with James’ Miami Heat teams in 2013 and 2014. Part of his success was built on cultivating a strong relationship with Paul George, whom Vogel helped develop into a perennial All-Star. He has a reputation as a defense-first coach who twice led the NBA’s stingiest unit (statistically).“I am very excited for this opportunity to join the Lakers, a prestigious organization that I have long admired,” Vogel said. “I look forward to coaching such phenomenal talent and bringing my strategic vision to the team.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years center_img Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Vogel’s official hire marks the end of a lengthy and sometimes fraught coaching search for the Lakers. As recently as a week ago, they were widely expected to hire former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue, whose deep-rooted relationship with James includes three straight NBA Finals appearances and the 2016 championship. Talks broke down Wednesday, with Lue reportedly taking issue with the years and salary offered by the Lakers, as well as the team’s desire to dictate assistant coaches on the staff.The team did not officially announce any assistant coaches as of Monday afternoon, but they are expected to bring in former Nets and Bucks head coach Jason Kidd as an assistant.
