[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022. Please stay tuned.
[iv]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so. Please, stay tuned.
[v] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so. Please, stay tuned.

[viii] Hugo Chavez should be frying in hell. The scum was such a believer in the strength of socialism that his Cuban doctors killed him via their shoddy treatment. The POS should have sought U.S., UK, or even Russian medical treatment and perhaps he would still be alive. And this is the crap that socialist candidate Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont, wants to force on Americans?
[ix] Everyone involved in the coup to remove Trump from office, destroy his family and his businesses should be in prison. Lock them up, President Trump, because this f**king scum would sure as hell lock YOU up.
