A&E News


New on Rock Candy


Though Verizon hasn't yet announced it, the arena is penciled in for KISS' “Alive/35” tour on the band's website for Oct. 29. The legendary hard rockers are touring in support of “Sonic Boom,” their first album in 11 years, due out Oct. 6. As we reported earlier in this space, it's exclusively being sold at Walmart.


We mentioned two newly-announced concerts at Verizon Arena in our Fall Arts music preview: Maxwell, Common and Chrisette Michelle on Oct. 10 and R.E.O Speedwagon and Rick Springfield performing while Brian Boitano and others skate on Nov. 29. Both go on-sale on Friday at 10 a.m. A ticket for the former runs from $21.75 to $79.50 (for a limited amount of VIP seats), while the latter runs from $46.75 to $61.75.


It's a busy season for Little Rock actor and director Ray McKinnon. Or at least for his projects. “Randy and the Mob” came out on DVD last week. McKinnon wrote, directed and stars — twice, as twins — in the small town comedy. His wife, Lisa Blount, co-stars, memorably, too.
In mid-November, he's bound to get some attention for his impressive turn in Scott Teems' drama “That Evening Sun,which won the Golden Rock grand jury prize at the Little Rock Film Festival. The film opens then in New York and L.A., before a nationwide roll-out.  Then, on Nov. 20, McKinnon plays the coach in the adaptation of Michael Lewis' book on Michael Oher, “The Blind Side.” Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw star in a film that's bound to get a lot of mainstream play.


In November, Abrams ComicArts will put out graphic novelist Reinhard Kleist's “Johnny Cash: I See a Darkness.” According to Comic Book Resources, the book “takes readers through the landmark events in Cash's life, from his early sessions working with Elvis Presley, to his 1968 concert at Folsom Prison, to his 1990s comeback in which he won over a new generation of fans.”
