I don't care either way but my comprehension from the article said 'reportedly'. This is mere speculation and should be treated as such until it is 'officially confirmed'.

Again just because a media outlet reports something it does not mean it is so.

Well Marooko, the way I see it, there's going to be an empty main stage between Thievery Corp. and The Killers. You're a professional yodeler and I'm concert accordionist. I think this is our calling.

Only if you do a three hour set!! This would be the highlight of any weekend!

this was my feeling about it last night...I don't feel quite as bumped out now...I am almost postitive that Paul T had a back up plan...if anything it saves them some money considering they probably had to pay for the visa processing and lawyers and what not...

now the waiting for a press release begins!

i'll be at work, sorry, no sasha grey!

Well, if anything stuff can be moved around...Why not move Morrissey and Franz to Saturday and give Leonard Cohen and Paul McCartney the main stage on Friday to themselves..

I am not saying that's how it works but it would make me a happy camping hearing 4 hours of Cohen/McCartney...

That's true. As I gaze at the lineup, it really is a shame that Friday is so loaded and Saturday looks like it needs TWO major main stage additions.

Yep...I have been screaming for months about at least one major addition but now we needz 2...

How about Beck? What's he got better to do? Plus, it's not like he'd have far to travel.

I am almost posotive they had a back up plan due to the fact that this was a very big possibility.

Funny enough...I actually thought about this last night..Beck can be called upon in a pinch....

JSam67
03-09-2009, 08:24 AM
Yeah? I thought The Cure was a pinch-hit headliner, Beck would make a lot of sense as a pinch-hit subheadliner.

It was a good move for her to be on the lineup from a publicity standpoint, but now I just hope they fill up Saturday.

I've seen her live twice, and she is exceptional. Add her to Saturday.

Wow.

I know everyone has been complaining about Saturday, but looking at the new poster without Amy really brought it home for me. It's like someone scheduled a state fair right in the middle of Coachella.

OK, a pretty cool state fair, but still...

This makes me sad, but I'm not REALLY into her, just wanted to see her live for once.
