P!nk’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’ world tour arrives next spring

P!nk announced on Thursday that she would bring her “Beautiful Trauma” world tour to the KFC Yum! Center on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.

She was last in Louisville in 2013 for her “The Truth About Love” tour.

According to the announcement, U.S. and Canadian residents who purchase tickets online between Oct. 10 and Oct. 20 will be able to redeem a physical copy of her new album “Beautiful Trauma,” out Friday, Oct. 13. (Listen to a track “Whatever You Want” via RCA Records.)

Tickets will be on sale starting Friday, Oct. 13 to the general public.

Speaking of the Yum! Center…

Brown-Forman reportedly pulls out of luxury suite (not over UofL)

The KFC Yum! Center, which has 75 luxury suites, now has one less tenant.

The Courier-Journal is reporting that Brown-Forman has pulled out of its Yum Center suite, but a spokesman told the C-J that the move had nothing to do with the University of Louisville’s recent men’s basketball scandal. Indeed, he said, the decision came months before and the suite was canceled for an “internal reason.”

According to the Cardinal Athletic Fund, the suites “offer a unique experience for our fans. As a suite holder, you have exclusive access to over 125 events a year at the KFC Yum! Center.”

A suite seats 16 to 20 people with the option to purchase 8 to 10 standing room tickets; it offers a flat-screen TV, stainless steel kitchen appliances, wet bar, sofa, credenza and closet space. It also has an entrance via escalator or elevator, private executive restroom and access to all premium clubs in the arena, among other perks.

Thursday is the deadline to submit DACA renewal requests

Rep. John Yarmuth tweeted out an urgent reminder this week to participants in the federal program that protects undocumented immigrants who come to the United States as children, also known as Dreamers.

Indeed, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a reminder in late September about the approaching deadline, saying: “As previously announced, for recipients whose DACA and work authorization expire between Sept. 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018, inclusive, USCIS will continue to accept renewal requests through Oct. 5, 2017. These requests must be properly filed and physically received by the agency at the proper filing location no later than Oct. 5.”

On Sept. 5, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke issued a memorandum on initiating a wind-down of DACA. More information on USCIS and its programs can be found at uscis.gov.
