Anita Pallenberg

Iconic actor, fashionista and influence on The Rolling Stones, Anita Pallenburg, will be featured in a documentary produced by Marlon Richards, her son with Stones guitarist Keith Richards. The film is to be based on footage found in storage and given to Richards in 2012, along with a dissertation and other collected film and documents.

Scarlet Johanssen has been picked to voice Pallenburg after an exhaustive search for a voice actress that spanned the breadth of Europe.

The documentary, titled ‘Catching Fire: The Story of Anita Pallenburg’ will dig deep into a life that had as many dark times as highlights. It covers Pallenberg’s relationship with Keith Richards, and her life after they split, leaving her to raise Marlon.

The event ticket industry is about to get much more transparent with the passage in the U.S. House of Representatives of the TICKET Act

TICKET Act Passed in US House of Representative, Increasing Transparency in Ticket Industry. This legislation does two important thing. It requires ticket sellers like Ticketmaster and third-party sellers to list the full price of a ticket, itemized to show the different fees included in that price. It will also curb speculative ticketing, where people and businesses sell tickets that they don’t actually have to drive up prices.

This legislation was popular, bipartisan, and passed with a vote of 338-24.

Another important aspect of this legislation is that it requires retailers to give full refunds of tickets or replacements at the buyer’s approval.

“We commend House passage of H.R. 3950, the TICKET Act, which will help to improve the ticket buying experience for fans, to protect the livelihoods of artists, and to preserve independent venues across the nation,” Stephen Parker, executive director of National Independent Venues Association, said in a statement. “Not only has the U.S. House of Representatives moved to protect consumers from predatory and deceptive ticketing practices, but states across the country, including Arizona, Maryland, Minnesota and Nevada, have recently banned, without exception, speculative tickets on a bipartisan basis. We call on Congress to do the same, to build on the TICKET Act and adopt strong, enforceable, comprehensive ticketing reform legislation like the Fans First Act.”
