    Default Almost Acoustic Xmas 2008

    Dec 13-14 Gibson Amp.
    Wiki says Night 1 Coldplay, Night 2 Metallica
    Of course that's probably not true but...we can always assume there's a good chance of both of those bands playing.
    Death Cab too maybe is a lockdown?
    Is it going to be announced soon?

    Coldplay definitely won't be doing the US radio circuit this winter, they will be touring the UK

    Wikipedia is also the one who claimed that Inland Invasion would be happening again this year.

    Yeah I was telling supre that NIN are a good possibility in another thread, and him being supre dumped all over the idea. I'm sure if it happens, he will find a way to make it his idea. Zenidogx i'm there with you on the NIN prediction. What other band could play though? I'm sure Metallica won't be there.

    KROQ typically gets the cream of the crop when it comes to the US radio fests, expect to get at least some of your money back.

    And here is who to expect so far...

    The Killers
    Bloc Party
    Death Cab
    Franz Ferdinand
    The Ting Tings




    Gibson holds 6,00 people give or take. Good sound, view from anywhere is not terrible. It used to be an outdoor venue back in the day...

    Great one, the sound is high quality. For being an amp it feels pretty intimate.

    Unfortunately, The Killers are a lock. On December 12th they're in San Francisco, and their next show after that is Ireland on the 20th.

    My money is going towards The Killers headlining the night with the good lineup and possibly NIN headlining the night with the shitty lineup

    I doubt the Killers play, they already played last year. should we expect Announcements same time as last year? that would be in about 2-3 weeks. I remember it was two weeks before thanksgiving last year, and they went onsale right after thanksgiving.

    And I dont care if they play, they will have to kiss his ass though if they want NIN like last time. So that means full production. I had pit that year, I wouldnt do it unless I had pit tix for it..

    true, I could see them headlining actually. Maybe with Bloc Party, Franz all on the same day. That would make for a great triple threat.

    Yeah I pulled the third level and let them go. Besides I was a bit bothered by Muse being a headliner.
