101 Things To Do In Memphis #97: New Years Eve on Beale

by Melissa Thompson

Ring in the New Year at one of the many events taking place on exciting Beale Street!

New Year's Eve on Beale Street Featuring B.B. King's Blues Band & Tito Jackson 
Corner of Fourth St. & Beale St.
FREE Concert Starting at 8:45 pm - December 31, 2017

It's the biggest party of the year!  Say good-bye to 2017 and ring in 2018 with live music, dancing, fireworks, great food and drinks and thousands of your closest friends!  Beale Street’s big New Year’s Eve Celebration will be even more spectacular this year due to the addition of some serious star-power with headliner B.B. King’s Blues Band featuring pop music icon Tito Jackson. Together, superstar Tito Jackson and the B.B. King’s Blues Band will continue the mighty legacies of B.B. King and the Jackson 5 in an NYE set that will have music-lovers from around the planet vying for a spot on historic Beale Street this December 31.

For over half a century, B.B. King and B.B. King’s Blues Band defined a genre, averaging over 250 sold-out shows per year. Combine that heritage with the inspired genius of Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Tito Jackson and you get a powerful must-see musical act that will be shared with Memphis audiences first.

The NYE concert, which is free and open to all 21 years old and older, is part of a night-long celebration of Memphis music, including sets from multiple Memphis performers and a big fireworks finale. All bands will play at the corner of Fourth Street and Beale, and the event will be broadcast live via the street’s social media channels.

Happy New Year from The Melissa Thompson Team!

As we say farewell to 2016 and greet 2017, many of us will be making New Year’s resolutions.  A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in western countries, in which a person makes a promise of self-improvement of some kind in the new year.

Approximately 45% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions every year.  Here is a list of the most common resolutions people make:

  • Lose weight and get fit
  • Quit smoking
  • Learn something new
  • Eat healthier
  • Spend less & save more
  • Spend more time with family
  • Travel to new places
  • Be less stressed
  • Volunteer
  • Drink less alcohol

While we all have the best of intentions when we make our resolutions, about 25% of us give up on them by the second week of January.  There are loads of resources available to help us stay on track and stick to our resolutions.  The following tips will help you in making resolutions, and more importantly in keeping them!

  • Set short-term goals for long-term results.
  • Make your resolution about the journey, not the outcome.
  • Create a schedule for your resolution.
  • Use the buddy system.  It motivates you to stick to it when you have someone else to answer to.
  • Clearly state your goals-write them down and place them where you can see them daily.
  • Keep records. Track your successes and your failures so that you will know what works and what doesn’t.
  • Utilize an app such as the New Year Resolution App 2017 from Phenomenal Enterprises Limited
  • Celebrate small victories to inspire yourself to keep going.
  • Reassess your resolutions. If something isn’t working, make changes.
  • Don’t give up so easily.  YOU CAN DO THIS!

Check out Ten Ways to Make Your Resolutions Stick for more tips and information.

Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2017!
