    It just means he probably won't be at Coachella... I mean ending 4/17 in Switzerland...

    So it would be Sunday or nothing and he would be a wreck by the time he got out to the desert.

    Just like The Prodigy playing the April 17th in England pretty much rules them out too.

    I know this is the 1,000,000th thread and for that, this is lame, but like or it or not... I FULLY SUPPORT THIS THREAD!

    I just find it too odd that after being in Europe for over a moth he just happens to end RIGHT in time to comfortably make it all the way out to Indio Sunday.

    It's kinda an eerie date to leave Europe, after being there for a month, for someone already rumored to play here.

    I would think this almost certainly disqualifies him. 48 hours to get his entire band, crew, and gear half-way around the world to play one show? This makes sense?

    it's a stretch but flying west is easy... you only loose a few hrs.

    I'm going to count him out because of this.

    with the time zones, they could take off from Switzerland (or England in Prodigy's case) and pretty much land in socal within four hours of the time they took off... that still leaves them two DAYS to get to the festival grounds from the airport... (or a day and a half if they wait & fly out the next morning)

    it's VERY much a possibility...

    As you should. He won't bust his ass to get back and perform on minimal rest, and risk putting on a bad show. Byrne has too much pride in his performances

    Mogwai had a two day break in between Scotland and Coachella in 2006.

    I admit it would seem weird doing this whole thing JUST for Coachella, and if that was the case I wouldn't believe it... what I'm implying is that there is perhaps a further U.S. tour in the works to take place in late April that will be announced later, maybe not even until after the Coachella lineup is released.

    More like 96 hours if he were to play on Sunday...Doable.

    Doable but highly unlikely. I think we need to accept that he won't be there. That way, if he is, it will still feel like a surprise treat.
