Daredevil Nik Wallenda said Tuesday that his next tightrope walk will be more than 50 stories high from one high-rise building to another over the Chicago River. Wallenda, 35, will attempt the feat without a net or harness. It will be broadcast live on the Discovery Channel at 6 p.m. Nov. 2, the network said. Wallenda will start the walk at one of the two Marina Towers buildings, then travel more than two city blocks across the river on an uphill 15-degree angle to the Leo Burnett Building.
Album release shows U2 is still innovating, entertaining
Since U2 stunned the music world by delivering a surprise album at Apple’s iPhone 6 unveiling and making it available to a half-billion iTunes users for free, they’ve gotten an avalanche of publicity. But who’s listening to it? The answer is still unclear. Apple has not released official download rates for “Songs of Innocence” and U2’s manager, Guy Oseary, also said he didn’t know how many people had actually downloaded the album. But that really wasn’t the point: The album will live on in users’ iCloud, and the band envisions new listeners accessing it for the first time for years to come.

Diners order from a cafeteria-style counter, then the food is cooked from scratch on the other side of large glass windows that showcase the chefs.
Too many hazy sentiments bog down Tim McGraw
Twenty years after his breakthrough hit, “Indian Outlaw,” Tim McGraw still pushes at country music’s boundaries. His new album, “Sundown Heaven Town,” incorporates contemporary Nashville flourishes while holding onto McGraw’s signature sound — a moody, atmospheric tone developed over the years with producer Byron Gallimore. The 14-song album hits several creative peaks, but bogs down with too many forgettable, midtempo tunes.
Pediatric patients find hidden joys of life on Fox’s ‘Red Band Society’
“Family” can have many meanings, and television is giving it a new one when it comes to those in a Los Angeles hospital’s pediatric ward. The Fox drama series “Red Band Society” has an impressive pedigree starting with executive producer Steven Spielberg and a fellow Oscar winner, star Octavia Spencer. However, heavy lifting also is done by a cast of relative newcomers as the patients who see one another not only through illnesses, but many rites of young life.
