Thread: For those of you who say no Bowie....

    Default For those of you who say no Bowie....

    Remember this?

    Prince to be added to Coachella bill? Or notů
    05:01 PM PT, Mar 18 2008

    No word on which day he will crash the party, but Prince will be added to the lineup for the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which runs April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, sources tell me.* No confirmation from the artist's websites, which seem to be down (or under construction) at the moment. But this certainly adds some meat to the the festival's slightly protein-starved roster.

    Goldfrapp and Aphex Twin were recently announced as additions to the lineup, as well as Serj Tankian, Redd Kross, Kate Nash and Adele (update: Adele, according to Goldenvoice, "is no longer performing.")

    Only 37 days until the desert.

    *Correction: Coachella co-producers AEG Live have responded to this post. Brandon K. Phillips, CEO of AEG Live, writes in an email: "Paul Tollett, the head of our Goldenvoice division and our partner in the festival, just called to tell me that the LA Times put on their blog that Prince was playing Coachella. This is absolutely not true... Regardless of what the Times was told, there is no commitment from Prince to play Coachella." Stay tuned.... this is the Purple One we're talking about, so anything could happen.

    The purple one who wasnt so purple.

    I was thinking the lights shooting upward were gonna turn purple. Perhaps on 1999 when he said "the sky was all purple...."

    Yes but last year Prince did not issue a statement via his website like Bowie did today:
    http://www.davidbowie.com/news/index.php?id=20090127

    He even says "we feel duty-bound to deny this particular story here too, lest members be fleeced of their hard-earned" to make sure no one buys tix thinking he may be there.

    Well, there you have it. An official No Bowie confirmation. That is, if the GV confirmation of no Bowie wasn't enough...

    No, it's an official no Bowie as Ziggy Stardust confirmation.

    No dummy, it says:

    01.27.2009 NEWS: NO DB OR ZIGGY AT COACHELLA 2009

    No DB or Ziggy. Neither of them.

    I wonder what it is about Coachella that Bowie isn't into. Maybe it's the venue's proximity to Palm Springs... Being an elderly gay, perhaps Bowie has some bad PS memories/associations he just can't shake. Maybe he said to himself, "I will never come back here." Something tells me that if Bowie makes a promise to himself, he keeps it. That's fine-- I'll learn-- Go see the bitch on her turf if and when she tours in the US again.

    My favorite part of the newsflash is whoever's fake poster marked out as FAKE. Well, duh... though seriously that poster represents probably what would be the raddest 'chella eva.

    Bowie isn't gay, he acted gay as a shtick/shock value. Bowie has reffered to himself several times as a "closet heterosexual".

    I loled. this board really screws with the media.

    I have better things to do than double check all of my posts. If the absence of "got" really makes it incomprehensible to you then you just confirmed your idiocy.

    Do I need to add a joke tag to make my humor more obvious or just bring it down a little more to the lowest common denominator?

    I got that you were trying to be funny, I just didn't realize that Bowie being gay was part of your joke. I'm honored that you think of me as the lowest common denominator, though.
