Fans injured in storm at Backstreet Boys Oklahoma concert

At least 14 people have been injured and transported to hospitals after trusses holding up the entrance to a resort where the Backstreet Boys were set to begin a concert in Oklahoma collapsed.

WinStar World Casino and Resort says in a statement posted on Twitter Saturday that the resort began an evacuation at about 5 p.m. when lightning was within four miles of the casino.

The company says about 150 patrons did not evacuate and when the storm hit with 70-80 mph (113-128 kph) winds, it knocked over trusses and the entrance collapsed on them. Of the 14 people taken to a hospital, two have been released.

WinStar later said the concert was postponed to a later date. Band member Kevin Richardson tweeted that the concert had been sold out with about 12,000 fans.

John Williams composition about ghost making world premiere

A new John Williams composition about a ghost said to have scared Leonard Bernstein is making its world premiere.

"Highwood's Ghost, an Encounter for Harp, Cello, and Orchestra" will be performed Sunday at Tanglewood in Massachusetts, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

The ghost haunts Highwood House, a building on the Tanglewood property.

Many people have reported encounters with the specter over the years, but Bernstein's story is perhaps the most famous. Bernstein said he was approached by an apparition in 1990 while sitting by a window on the second floor. Startled, he sprang from his seat and called out to the figure.

Williams said he wrote the piece for fun and to "provide the unusual combination of harp and cello an opportunity to set the stage for an ectoplasmic visit."

Set for an Oct. 12 release, “Happy Xmas” will have a blues edge to it and will contain 14 tracks and is the 24th studio album of Clapton’s career and his first since 2016 when he released “I Still Do,” Billboard reported.

The album will contain Christmas favorites such as “White Christmas,” “Silent Night” and “Away in a Manger,” Rolling Stone reported. Clapton’s version of “Jingle Bells” is sung “In Memory of Avicii,” a dedication to the late disc jockey.

"I had in my head that these holiday songs could be done with a slight blues tinge, and I started to figure out how to play the blues lines in between the vocals,” Clapton told Billboard. “I got it down and one of the most identifiable songs on the album, the one that became the foundational style, is ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.’”

“Happy Xmas” is available for preorder, Billboard reported.

Marty Balin filed a suit in the Manhattan Federal Court, claiming his vocal cords were paralyzed and he lost half his tongue in a tracheotomy after open heart surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital on March 11, 2016, The New York Daily News reported.

Balin, 76, also charged in his lawsuit that the surgery took away his ability to play guitar or sing, the newspaper reported.The lawsuit also names six doctors, Newsday reported. Balin, who wrote hits and sang lead on songs like “Miracles,” “Caroline” and “With Your Love,” needed emergency open heart surgery while he was performing. He claims he received inadequate care after his triple bypass and valve replacement, Newsday reported.

“The personnel in charge knew that the hospital was inadequately staffed, particularly in the recovery unit where Mr. Balin was sent after undergoing open heart surgery,” the lawsuit charges.

After the operation, Balin needed a tracheotomy that resulted in his tongue and vocal cords being damaged, the suit says. Tissue on his left thumb died, requiring it be amputated, the Daily News reported.

“Mr. Balin walked into the hospital able to speak and with fully functional left hand,” the suit says. “By the time Mr. Balin was finally released from the hospital, he had lost half his tongue so that he cannot speak or eat properly; he also has a paralyzed vocal cord; he has a necrotic left hand and has lost his left thumb; he had become totally disabled and has never recovered properly.”

The suit seeks unspecified damages, the Daily News reported.

“As a matter of policy, we cannot comment on the specifics of this case because it is a pending legal matter but we can share our highest priority is delivering the highest level of compassionate care to our patients,” a Mount Sinai spokeswoman told the Daily News.
