Railroad Revival canceled


The Railroad Revival Tour has run off the tracks.

The cross-country tour featuring Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Band of Horses and John C. Reilly has been canceled by organizers.

A note on the tour’s website says “certain complications would not permit us to host the shows in the manner intended,” but gave no further details.

The eight-stop tour in vintage railcars was expected to start Oct. 20 in Duluth, Ga. Full ticket refunds are being given.

McDonald weds

Audra McDonald and Will Swenson have tied the knot, cementing a relationship between the two Broadway stars.

According to a publicist for the bride, the couple married Saturday at their home in Croton-on-Hudson in New York.

Grylls returning

Bear Grylls will soon have some company on his in-the-wild adventures.

NBC said Monday that it is making a competition series with Grylls. He is the former star of Discovery’s “Man vs. Wild.”

The NBC series, “Get Out Alive,” is planned for next summer. In it, Grylls will guide two teams in adventures. He says competitors will learn survival skills and teamwork but will have to suffer some pain before being rewarded in the end.
