The beloved “Wheels of Soul” returns for the third straight year, as the Tedeschi Trucks Band hosted summer event always brings some of the greatest talent together for extended tour engagements. This year is no exception, as TTB has recruited by Hot Tuna and The Wood Brothers for a month long tour schedule together. The tour runs from July 1st through the 30th, culminating in two nights at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.The three bands will cross the country together, starting in the Northeast before moving to the Southeast and Midwest, ultimately ending up in Colorado. The Wheels Of Soul tours are known for their collaborative spirit, and the musicians from Hot Tuna and Wood Brothers are no stranger to collaborating. Jorma Kaukonen, for example, has played many times with TTB in recent double billings.“It’s been great to develop this tour into an annual event where we get a chance to hit the road and share the stage with fellow musicians we love and respect, says Susan Tedeschi in a statement. “Each year we try to find bands that share our musical vision while bringing their own unique talents to this traveling circus.” Oliver Wood adds, “We go way back with Derek and Susan. They are some of our favorite friends and collaborators.” Wood co-wrote a track on TTB’s Revelator album, and both Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi appeared on The Wood Brothers’ Paradise album as well.Check out the full tour schedule below, and head to TTB’s website for details.Wheels of Soul Summer Tour 2017July 1 – Gilford, NH – Bank of New Hampshire PavilionJuly 2 – Essex, VT (Burlington) – Midway Lawn at Champlain Valley ExpositionJuly 3 – Saratoga, NY – Saratoga Performing Arts CenterJuly 5 – Vienna, VA (DC) –Wolf Trap *July 8 – Rochester, NY – Highland BowlJuly 9 – Simsbury, CT – Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts CenterJuly 12 – Virginia Beach, VA – Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater **July 14 – Raleigh, NC – Red Hat Amphitheater **July 15 – Atlanta, GA – Fox Theatre ***July 16 – Charlotte, NC – Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre **July 19 – Indianapolis, IN – Farm Bureau Insurance LawnJuly 21 – Cincinnati, OH – PNC Pavilion at Riverbend Music CenterJuly 22 – Huber Heights, OH (Dayton) – Rose Music CenterJuly 23 – Rochester, MI (Detroit) – Meadow Brook AmphitheatreJuly 25 – Rogers, AR – Walmart Arkansas Music PavilionJuly 27 – Albuquerque, NM – Sandia CasinoJuly 29-30 – Morrison, CO – Red Rocks Amphitheatre*On sale March 18th**On sale February 10th***On sale February 3rd
There is a new boss in North London as Jose Mourinho makes a return to football coaching duty after being named the new head coach of Tottenham Hotspurs.After five years in charge of Spurs, Mauricio Pochettino was shown the exit door for failing to deliver trophies and a poor start to the season, just five months after taking the club to its first UEFA Champions League finals.Despite losing to Liverpool in Madrid by a lone goal, the incredible story of their Champions League campaign and a first-ever final will forever be remembered.Now the love story between Argentine and the club is over and former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho has been appointed as manager until 2023.But, how many permanent managers have Tottenham Hotspur appointed for the first team since the start of the 21st century?While some appointments were on a short-term basis, many others were given permanent deals but could not stand the test of time at the club.Here is the list of coaches Spurs have had in the 21st centuryGlenn Hoddle (2001-2003)Hoddle was named Spurs’ manager in March 2001, taking over from John Graham.

However, after his departure, it was widely reported that he left because of a series of disagreements with the then Sporting Director, Frank Arnesen.Speaking in 2005, Santini said he quit partly because he felt agreements with the club were broken, but he admitted he “dug his own grave” by agreeing to join the club before the end of Euro 2004.Martin Jol (2004-2007)After the resignation of Jacques Santini, Martin Jol, his assistant was named as his successor on November 8, 2004.He led Spurs to ninth position after taking over the club.In the summer of the 2005/2006 season, he signed a new three-year contract.He led the team to its highest finish since 1990, fifth.The club board sacked Martin Jol on 25th October, 2008 after Spurs’ 2-1 defeat to Getafe in the UEFA Cup.Juande Ramos (2007-2008)Spanish international, Juande Ramos took over from Martin Jol.He helped the club to its first trophy since 1999 after beating London rivals, Chelsea in the League Cup.After a poor start to the 2008-2009 season where he won just two points in eight matches, he was dismissed together with his assistant, Gus Poyet on October 25, 2008.Harry Redknapp (2008-2012)Harry Redknapp immediately replaced Juande Ramos at the club.

Co-champ Jairam approached Nahir to congratulate him on a spelling be well spelled, but Nahir wasn’t having it.Nahir’s new biggest fan, Dez Bryant, tweeted his congratulations.#NiharJanga you just made my whole day buddy.. Congrats on winning the #spellingbee champ.. Some how some way I have to get you to a game #x— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) May 27, 2016 Advertisement Scripps National Spelling Bee Co-champion Nihar Janga is an intense competitor. The 5th grader from Austin, Texas wears his emotions on his sleeve. He gets inside the opponents head. He’s not in the spelling bee to make friends, he’s there to win.In last night’s final round, Nihar shook his head in disapproval as 7th grader Jairam Hathwar incorrectly spelled “Drahthaar”. When Jairam returned to his seat, Nihar let him know about it.With everything on the line, Nahir correctly spelled “Gessellschaft” to secure his spot as co-champion. He threw up Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant’s trademark “X” sign to celebrate. Big players make big plays in big games.
