Billy Idol coming to Clearwater

Billy Idol has just announced a 2013 summer tour that includes a stop on June 18 at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall. That howl you're hearing now is the sound of my 16-year-old self celebrating and punching the sky with my studded leather glove.

The BillyIdol.net presales for most shows begin Tuesday, and many shows go on sale to the general public beginning Friday. You'll have to sign up at BillyIdol.net for the presale opportunities. When you sign up you will be automatically entered into a contest to win tickets to the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and a meet and greet with Billy prior to his set.

  5. McDonald's soft serve in Florida is made with handshakes and happy cows

    Consumer

    Floridians licked nine million McDonald's vanilla cones last year.

    Calves play with a rubber toy at the Milking R Dairy in Okeechobee, FL. Owners Sutton Rucks, Jr., and his wife Kris Rucks sell their milk to SouthEast Dairies cooperative, Edward Coryn of Dairy Mix in St. Petersburg buys it, transforms it into soft-serve ice cream base, and sells it to all the McDonald's.
