Over 42 years ago, the trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock’s soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell’s simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as Air Supply. However it is the energy and showmanship from their live shows that hold audiences captive around the world.

In 1980, Air Supply’s "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts; their second single "All Out of Love" moved up the charts even faster. In 1983 Air Supply recorded “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All,” which solidified the group as a permanent force in modern music. This song was released on The Greatest Hits album, which soared past seven million copies sold and was followed by “Lost in Love,” “All Out of Love,” “The One That You Love,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All.” "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies.

Today, Air Supply continues to delight audiences all over the world with their mega - hits, which can still be heard across the airwaves. In 2010 they released their long -awaited album “Mumbo Jumbo,” their first in eight years. Among the 14 - tracks, “Dance With Me” earned Air Supply a prominent feature article in Billboard Magazine titled "Still Supplying The Hits After 35 Years."  The duo continue to play more than 150 shows a year worldwide.

Friday’s Celeb Dinner now a Tribute Event; Saturday Nearly Sold Out

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (August 1, 2018) – In just a few weeks, the world-famous Atlantic City Boardwalk will be swarming with wrestling fans from far and wide,  gearing up for the first ever Boardwalk Beatdown presented by Stand Alone Wrestling.
Friday, August 24, fans are invited to dine amongst wrestling celebs overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean at the one and only Steel Pier. Saturday, August 25 will be a convention-style event at The Claridge from 9am to 6pm, featuring 100 stars and vendors from all over the country, huge giveaways, swag bags, and even a WWE 2K18 tournament! Saturday evening’s hard-hitting, action packed pro-wrestling card takes place in the historic Celebrity Theatre of The Claridge.
The weekend event is headlined by 2 of the biggest names in pro-wrestling history: none other than WWE Hall of Famers Goldberg and Sting. For the first time ever, both Sting and Goldberg will be offering dual photo ops. Boardwalk Beatdown also welcomes the notorious Bullet Club - Cody Rhodes w/ Brandi Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Hangman Page and Marty Scurll. These headliners as well as many other guests will be available for group photo ops, autographs, and individual meet & greets.
In light of the recent death of the 4 year old son of local wrestler, Dave Hynes, aka Ace Marxman, Stand Alone Wrestling has turned Friday’s Dinner With the Stars into a tribute event, with $10 from every ticket going to the Hynes family for Lucas. The $75 ($40 for children under 12)  ticket includes your meal, non alcoholic beverages, Q&A, and table photo opp.
Why Atlantic City? Says Stand Alone Wrestling’s Chad Minnes, “In 2003 during the peak of AC Gaming, I was employed by Harrah's Resort. I was able to provide for myself, my son and afford a home because of this opportunity. I left the casino industry during the decline of gaming. Atlantic City is so special to me and to be a small small part of the rebirth is the most rewarding part of this. I see a huge future for this event yearly in Atlantic City with a series of smaller events planned as well" Minnes has been a huge supporter of local businesses and organizations while getting the word out and utilizing his guerrilla style marketing tactics to make sure everyone knows about Boardwalk Beatdown. His hope is that bringing this huge event to Atlantic City will boost the local economy and provide common ground for wrestling fans of all ages and walks of life to come together for a weekend of fun and entertainment.
Select tickets are still available for all 3 events at www.standalonewrestling.com.

ROYAL CARIBBEAN COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF SILVERSEA CRUISES SHARES

Ultra-luxury and expedition cruise leader joins RCL’s portfolio of top brandsSilversea launches Project Invictus, to further enhance product and ships

Source: Silversea 
MIAMI, July 31, 2018 – Silversea Cruises, a pioneer and leader in ultra-luxury and expedition cruising, has officially joined the family of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL).
The companies announced today they have closed on RCL’s acquisition of a two-thirds stake in Silversea after receiving final approval from regulators. The investment unites two leading players in the cruise industry and fills out RCL’s portfolio of cruise brands across all key market segments.
We are proud to officially welcome Silversea’s industry-leading team to the RCL family,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “This is a dynamite combination and we can’t wait to work with Manfredi, Roberto and the entire team as together we take Silversea to the next level.”
Regulators green-lighted Royal Caribbean’s purchase of a 66.7% equity stake in Silversea Cruises, based on an enterprise value of approximately $2 billion. Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio will remain Executive Chairman of Silversea and retain a 33.3% stake.
"We're excited to join the Royal Caribbean family and ready to begin this next chapter as part of an industry leader that is uniquely qualified to support Silversea’s future growth,” said Lefebvre. “This partnership enables us to realize our vision of being the uncontested leader in ultra-luxury cruising and expedition, taking our guests to more than 1,000 destinations aboard some of the world’s most luxurious vessels.”
The companies also announced Project Invictus, a multi-year initiative to take Silversea’s ultra-luxury offerings to the next level. Project Invictus enhancements range from product upgrades to magnified ship revitalization programs. “Our intent is to solidify our already strong leadership position with an exciting array of upgrades that thrill our guests,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea CEO.
The first Invictus enhancements will begin rolling out on the Silver Muse this upcoming August 19th where an upgraded champagne and caviar offering will be initiated. Immediately thereafter, these and other enhancements will be implemented fleet wide, impacting a wide variety of onboard features and strengthening Silversea’s reputation for indulgent, luxurious embellishments.
Silversea’s growing fleet of ultra-luxury ships will also benefit from an upgrade. The planned renovation of Silver Whisper in December 2018 will be much more comprehensive than initially anticipated and will include a partial refit of all guest cabins. Moreover, Silversea’s Silver Wind will also enter into an enhanced dry dock in December 2018. Both vessels will join the overarching plan for a fleet-wide “Musification” which will take inspiration from the design of the very successful cruise line’s flagship, Silver Muse. The plan will be completed shortly after with an enhanced dry dock of the Silver Shadow.
With Silversea joining the RCL lineup alongside Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, TUI Cruises and Pullmantur Cruceros, the Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. fleet now numbers 59 ships with an additional 15 on order.
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC acted as a financial advisor to RCL as well as served as the lead arranger for the debt financing in respect to the transaction.
