Rage Against The Machine, Bjork, Billy Brag and Battles? Damn is that awesome.

Not to mention Arcade Fire, LCD and Midnight Juggernauts. I wonder who else is going to be added.

But hmmm... So Rage has officialy booked a date next year. World Tour 2008 anyone?

Isn't that what Rock The Bells was for?

4-5 shows or whatever it was, hardly counts as a world tour. And techincaly, Rock the Bells was a festival.

OHMIGAWD! Rage added another show! They must be all about the money!!! Any band that plays live, and charge for their shows, are greedy capitalists!

Dude, keeping it strictly to festivals they know will pay a lot of $$, come on now. Their profit margin is greater this way instead of doing solo headline shows.

Rage could easily do a sold out NA Stadium tour and make tons and tons of money. Probably more than all these festivals they have been doing.
Rage obviously like the festival setting. Rage played lots of festivals the first time around, now they are doing the same.
As I said, I expect a summer 2008 world tour.
Also, wasnt the one solo show they did, only $60? Thats freakin cheap for a concert. Especialy since it has been Rages only non-festival appearance so far AND they had QOTSA open up.
Sure, Rage like the money they are getting. But so does ANY band that plays festivals, or just tours in general.

it seems really familiar, like coachella 2007 in a lot of ways

A lot of these festivals have looked very similar to Coachella. It is almost like Coachella has gone on tour a la the old Lollapalooza.

That is definitely the benefit of the first mover advantage and being the first major festival of the year.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

Anyways, any chance Red Hot Chili Peppers will be added to this?

betao
10-01-2007, 07:57 PM
they look the same because they go for the same bands that are all touring. They're easier to get to play.

Well, they practically got the 3 Coachella headliners for an one-day festival.

my own opinion is that rage will play select shows in different parts of the world. starting with australia, then do some japan stuff, then hit the festival markets in the u.k. if they do the u.s. they will do it around election time to make a presence and statement. is it about the money? rage could make 20-30 million doing their own thing. i think what they are doing is playing big shows this is a reunion type thing and their shows have been well received. plus they are a big enough band to where they can play everywhere and do well worldwide.. sellouts? trust me there are bands who sell out everyday. its a business. if they can make money, i cant hate them when a band has to start playing shit clubs and live off nothing. ask the 20,000 bands that are created then die without a penny. so i will never get mad at a band for making money celebrating their music, its up to the people to decide what a sellout is. rage is one of the bands not to worry too much about. go find kid rock, or go find aerosmith. if you got cash, they will come hang out at your sweet 16 party. thats a sellout!!

What so Rokslide and now big day out? Most of the festivals in Europe last year has a Coachella style line up.....That is why I love Coachella.....

Yeah, that's pretty much the topper on this list. I must admit, I didn't know he had been doing anything lately.

Also, I only count 4 acts on that list that were at Coachella this year. How does that make them different than, oh, EVERY other festival this year?

Australia is going to have it's own Coachella so it doesn't matter (http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/news/local/10499/Coachella-coming-to-Australia.htm) (I don't believe it).

The two festivals don't come close despite the similarities in headliners for this year. Coachella wouldn't be that special if it was held at a county fairgrounds, and had d-barriers, people more concerned about getting drunk then listening to tunes, and really overpriced t-shirts.


sarah blasko!

She sucks live.

I wonder who is opening up for them?

hmm i wonder if they would have the same acts? They could end up getting the talent cheaper by booking them for both festivals. hmmmm.

that's fucking strange. Why would they make a Coachella 2 Australian version. Just make it another festival.

Maybe we should get Fuji Rocks in LA while we are at it
