I’m of the vintage where I was able to see the first film that featured Indiana Jones film in the theaters early in its run and I loved it quite a bit and recall being on the edge of my seat for much of it. Most of the film buff readers know that this didn’t even have his name in the title and ran under “Raiders Of The Lost Ark”. It’s hard to believe that this was some thirty one years ago but now Indy has returned for the fifth chapter in his story with “Indiana Jones and The Dial Of Destiny”. The first trailer was just released from Lucasfilm and I’ve got that along with the casting, basic premise and some promotional art. Check it out.

The Plot: In 1969, American archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones lives against the backdrop of the Space Race. Jones had started to feel doubts when the U.S. Government recruited former World War II enemies in their desperation to beat the Soviet Union out in the competition to make it to space. His goddaughter, Helena, accompanies him on his journey.[2][3] Meanwhile, Voller, a NASA member and ex-Nazi involved with the moon-landing program, wishes to make the world into a better place as he sees fit.

“The are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure.

The Press Release:
We told you about our new album 72 Seasons, so what’s next now that we’ve escaped the studio? Hit the road, of course! You want a tour, we’ve got a tour… how about two full years worth of shows?!?!

Over the past few years, we have been so inspired by the dedication and family/community vibe of the fans who traveled to San Francisco for our recent weekend celebrations, first in 2019 with the two S&M2 shows, followed by last year’s 40th Anniversary shows. On top of that, we had a blast being a part of the 2021 Wimmer Festivals when we played two nights in one city, each with a totally different setlist. With all of that in mind, the M72 tour was born!
