Thread: David Bowie or U2...

  1. #1

    Smile David Bowie or U2...

    Inorder to keep drawing the same quality crowd of people they've gotta bring in some major headliners such as Bowie, U2, like Roger Waters did last year. I haven't taken another concert seriously after seeing that performance!

    I would say that Bowie fits Coachella better then U2 does...that and I think Bowie would draw a larger crowd due to the fact that it would be a one off...U2 has a whole tour planned...

    Bowie... but only if he plays 'All The Young Dudes'.


    and U2 only if they play 'Discoteque' & 'Love Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me', which they won't, so still Bowie...

    It'll be Springsteen instead of either of those, I think.

    I love Bowie far more than U2 but I could see U2 being a more realistic headliner, at this rate they would play just about anything for the right price, Bowie not so much. I will side with U2 fans though and say that U2 would be a much larger draw than Bowie, they are arguably the biggest band in the world.

    David Bowie has more talent in his baby toe than U2 has in their whole band. I vote BOWIE !!!!! and the return of Ziggy Stardust

    I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN,IT WAS POUND FOR POUND THE BEST PERFORMANCE-BUT YOU CANT FORGET ABOUT PRINCE(GUITAR GOD/PERFORMER)EITHER-

    GV NEEDS
    BOWIE/THE SMITHS/RADIOHEAD-TO BE COMPARABLE IN THAT RESPECT
    IF JUST TWO OF THESE ACTS SHOW UP
    -ITS GONNA BE OFF.THE.CHAIN-
    ESPECIALLY IF ITS THE SMITHS-LA WILL BE EMPTY
    (TO THE DISMAY OF SOME SCARY ASS COACHELLA HEADS)
    THEY CAN STILL DRESS THE BILL UP WITH ALL SORTS OF OTHER LITTLE TREATS




    I DUNNO-EVERY YEAR ENDS UP HAVING AT LEAST TWO WORLD-BEATING HEADLINER PERFORMERS

    I don't get it. people can't seem to understand u2 do stadium tours, they dont have to play a festival and won't. It wouldnt bring in a "quality" crowd either...just people coming to see them and no one else. bowie is a good fit, u2 would be a great fit if they broke up after joshua tree and reunited recently releasing achtung baby now...but that is not reality.
