Crowd gets maximum Midler
Saturday, July 16, 1983
When Bette Midler performs, theÂ folks at Webster s must scurry toÂ t h e ir dictionaries to redefine wordsÂ l i ke outrageous and ‘ entertainmentÂ But outrageous ent e r t a inment isÂ just wh at Midler provided to an enthusiastic crowd of 7 500 ThursdayÂ night at Poplar Creek in H o f f m anÂ Estates.
Considering the hot muggy pavilion Midler’s p r a n c i n g, energeticÂ performance qualifies as a musicalÂ and comedic decathlon worthy of aÂ gold medal. Nobody enjoys the showÂ more than the Divine Miss M herself.
A Midler concert has the u n c a n nyÂ kna ck of peaking w i th Midler’s initial appearance and ma i n t a i n i ng itsÂ ene rgy t h r o u g h o ut the entire two h o ur show.
What helps sustain t h at freneticÂ pace is a blend of her mus ic w i th aÂ n a t u r al Â comedic
t a l ent as she reelsÂ off i r r eve r ent one-liners, lewd stories, and a r u n n i ng social commentary on anything that comes to mind.
ON WEDNESDAY Bette Midlerâ€™s New York Restoration Project celebrates their 10th annual Spring Picnic at Gracie Mansion. Among the throng who want to help Bette beautify NYC will be Jann Wenner â€¦ Mica Ertegun â€¦ Enid Nemy â€¦ Mario Buatta â€¦ Margo and Jimmy Nederlander â€¦ Judy Gold and but of course Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. Since 2007, Bloomberg and Betteâ€™s MilliontreesNYC project have planted close to 470,000 new greeneries in and around Manhattan.
Entertainers that draw ‘rowdies’ being barred
Monday, May 30, 1983
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) – Interior Secretary James Watt may
h a ve s t a r t ed a t r e nd w h en he
banned what he considered unwholesome entertainment from the
Washington, D.C., Mall.
Watt said the July 4th concert at
the Mall the last few years had attracted the “wrong element,” a remark that was considered a slap at
the Beach Boys, who have played at
the Mall two years in a row.
An avalanche of bad vibrations,
some coming from first lady Nancy
Reagan and Vice President George
Bush, caused Watt to rescind the
ban shortly after President Reagan
presented him a symbolic statue of a
foot with a hole in it.
But Watt’s idea seems to be catching on.

â€˜FROM a distanceâ€™ is a song written by American singer-songwriter Julie Gold and made famous by Bette Midler in 1990. It paints a picture of a world in harmony from a distance but laments the fact that up close we seem to be always at war. The lyrics in parts read:
UNITY IN DIVERSITY: Celerating the beauty of friendship.
â€œFrom a distance the world looks blue and green, and the snow-capped mountains white.
