Around this time last year, everyone was talking about Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus and an infamous foam finger. This summer, Thicke is promoting a new album, and will perform in Springfield with Magic!, the group behind the hit song 'Rude.' Robin Thicke and Magic! will be at the Illinois State Fair on Sunday, August 17.
One Direction will be coming to the Edward Jones Dome on August 27. Their 'Where We Are' stadium tour has taken them around the world, and they'll be appearing all across the U.S. late in the summer. The concert date in St. Louis was announced quite some time ago. A slight change in plans regarding the show was recently announced.
Flooding along the Mississippi River has once again caused disruptions for residents in and around Quincy. The Memorial Bridge closed to traffic on Monday. Inbound traffic to Quincy continues to be rerouted to the Bayview Bridge. Parts of Bonansinga Drive are also closed due to flooding. The National Weather Service observed the river stage in Quincy at 26.4 feet on Wednesday morning. Forecasters predict flood waters to recede over the next week. Flood stage in Quincy is 17 feet.
Rapidly rising waters on the Mississippi have left several areas in and around Hannibal flooded. All of the city's flood gates were put in place on June 30, and water has continued to rise. Popular attractions like the Mark Twain Riverboat and Sawyer's Creek have been forced to close because of the flood, and Highway 79 is closed just past the Mark Twain Cave. In Hannibal, the Mississippi is expected to crest at 26.7 feet early Wednesday afternoon.
