    No we can't. Stop starting useless threads. Google U2 + Livenation.

    Ask them to headline Sasquatch. Or ask Live Nation to uncancel Pemberton.

    Yes, I'm quite "badass" for going to every Coachella...

    U2 is quite high profile but they will be touring in 2009/2010. Why not show up for 2 hours on Saturday? I mean, D Mode did the last time they were touring (Before Las Vegas I believe..)

    The addition of Sir Paul is amazing! I woulda thought he play on Sunday for some reason, not Friday to kick-off the fest. I still think The Killers are too small of a band to headline on a Saturday night. I don't see many followers from them. People will leave early...

    U2...yeah...

    They like Leonard Cohen...could be a big surprise...and don't forget Madonna started out first at Coachella way before her tour started that year...

    If U2 do get a late add though, I'm just glad I got my pass...the U2 fans will scream to get in the place!

    Live Nation HAS the rights to U2 digital merchandise, touring, etce etcetce...

    alright, so much for that idea.

    But what about Madonna? She has a similar Live Nation contract BUT she was here wasn't she ???

    please think before you just spit out any idea that comes to your head. I mean that in the nicest way possible.

    Live Nation has the contract with their artists for Live Nation venues only...

    People did a shop around for all the Live Nation venues in the biggest cities for a U2 tour, and came up with the lamest, smallest halls in the world...you really think U2 will play in those places when they can play at a TM venue that holds 18,000 people?

    The contracts are only for Live Nation venues...U2 could sure show up at Coachella...

    But they won't...

    U2 really aren't a festival act. Their stage set up is way too complicated to be able to replicate in the 45 min. gap between artists.

    Thank GOD.

    Which is why it (should they ever play) would be set up pre festival as RW's surround speakers were last year.

    First off to U2diehard's question about Madonna... The Live Nation deal was done long after her Coachella appearance.

    As for all these venues in big cities. Most of them are arenas or stadiums. Neither of which tend to give exclusive rights to any tour promoting company.

    There's no way Live Nation would give U2 such a long contract and be willing to take a $19-million hit on their stock buy-back without putting a clause in the contract barring U2 from a rival promoter's venue/event.

    Realistically the closest chance of U2 ever performing a festival right now would be Sasquatch in May. The Gorge is a Live Nation venue... but that won't happen either.

    The Killers are so not worth a headlining position. I picture a bunch of 14 year old kids in their Hot Topic uniforms and parents in tow. C'mon Paul!
