    Cool The Triumphant Return of Scissor Sisters!

    They killed it in 2006, can't remember who they conflicted with but it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. They were flawless in every sense! They closed the outdoor theater sunday night in 06, they would surely be mainstage next year. Sunset would be ideal.

    Kickass blend of piano pop, disco/glam rock and one hell of a falsetto. Also one of those bands that plays the songs differently than the album. Filthy/Gorgeous doesn't even compare, it rocks SO HARD live.

    Trust me on this guys, I'm listening to you on Tool, trying to do Arcade Fire. Maybe even Muse. Repay the favor

    If you cannot enjoy a Scissor Sisters show, there is something massively and seriously wrong with you, right in your brain.

    Became unintentionally infamous-by-proxy here after their name became attached to a pair of sisters who murdered and dismembered a guy. For a few weird months, everywhere you went you got headlines about the Scissor Sisters being sentenced to life in jail or whatever.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...se-422436.html

    I'm told the band were both amused and a little flattered.

    I know. I didn't want to say anything. All Tool discussion aside, Scissor Sisters put on an amazing live show. They were PERFECT. Very tight sounding, very well rehearsed, the sound quality was top-notch. Singer Jake Shears' falsetto never once cracked. I wish you guys would give them a chance

    Tool vs. Scissor Sisters? That would have been my easiest decision ever. Gimme the falsetto and glitter, pleez.

    Between songs during Tool's set, some guy said:
    "Great. It's Tool, featuring Scissor Sisters."

    Thats one of my favorite Coachella quotes. hilarious.

    I might be the only one here who was torn between the two. Saw Tool. SS should definitely come back!

    Yea I didn't even give a fuck that Tool was playing. It was an all out dance fun party at the Outdoor stage. They were talking mad shit about Madonna, I was laughing my ass off. They better be back soon!

    I love Scissor Sisters but I'm hoping they'll be too busy opening for Depeche Mode to be at Coachella.

    not a fan but if they play next year I know my friend James would require me to catch them. I turned him onto Gogol Bordello & Beirut so it's his turn.
