He sneaks into the game with a simple plan -- win a medal -- but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph's only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz, a young troublemaking "glitch" from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy.

Following the success of the 2011/2012 world tour celebrating the 35th Anniversary of his multi-platinum selling live album Frampton Comes Alive!, including a stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, Peter Frampton is back on the road with Frampton’s Guitar Circus. The tour will feature the Grammy-winning musician performing with friends, celebrated guitarists, and other special guests (to be announced). Kicking off in May, Frampton will perform several dates with five-time Grammy Award winner Robert Cray including Nashville, New York City and Austin. Each night, Frampton’s set will be recorded and subsequently sold in digital format.
Frampton’s infectious live performance has been praised by Los Angeles Times noting “…the British virtuoso is still making sweet music.” St. Louis Post Dispatch furthers the acclaim by admiring “the purity of the musicianship from Frampton,” while The Herald Scotland lauds the guitarist explaining, “he delivered, with practiced ease, everything from jazz-inflected introductions to fierce, irresistible solos.”
FCA! 35 Tour: An Evening With Peter Frampton, a new live 2 DVD, Blu-ray, and The Best Of FCA! 35 Tour 3CD set is available now via Eagle Rock Entertainment. Directed and produced by Pierre & François Lamoureux, the set features two February 2012 shows—one performance in Milwaukee at the Pabst Theater and another in New York City at the Beacon Theatre.

At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others.

From punk pioneer to global superstar, BILLY IDOL has created an unparalleled niche in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. He is respected as the original punk rocker who long ago found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime.
Still as vital as ever, Idol will take to the road in the Summer of 2013 giving fans across the generations an opportunity to chant along as he delivers his endless catalogue of hits. In tow for the tour, he’s got longtime partner and legend in his own right, Steve Stevens, on guitar.
As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent and a fan of the Sex Pistols, Billy Idol was inspired to front the popular British punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band’s break-up in 1981. He then decided to try his luck in America. At this point, Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a crucial musical partnership was forged. From there on out, Billy churned out many hits including “Rebel Yell,” “White Wedding,” “Dancing With Myself,” "Flesh For Fantasy," “Hot In the City,” "Eyes Without A Face," and "Cradle of Love" among others.
