    Prove it or fuck off.

    NOTE - You personally not liking Jay-Z does not establish he was not originally intended as a headliner.

    My sister's hairdresser's cousin heard from an undisclosed inside source that the original headliner was going to be a Harvey Danger reunion but they pulled out at the last second, and so GV had to totally scramble and sign Jay Z at the last second.

    didn't you hear? they went for the stones, then bowie, then beasties, then radiohead, then talking heads, then velvet underground...but had to settle with jay-z. the internet said so.

    You're asking people to prove something that really isn't possible to prove unless they have taped conversations.

    Lawyer's trick, dipshit.

    I'm not sure that MJA is really looking for categorical proof so much as any credible claim that there was (so-and-so) booked or nearly booked and then it fell through.

    Not really. All I know is, there's this general consensus that "Jay-Z can't have been the original pick for headliner." But it's based on nothing. It's different than saying "Jay-Z is a weak headliner." There's a whole other jump in logic there that people are assuming because they think Jay-Z is a weak headliner, then there must have been another act pursued that "fell through", and that's just not supported by anything. So, all I'm asking is for someone to provide some reasonable explanation.

    I really don't see why. The man is just asking for a single piece of logic to connect the two statements because douchebags won't shut up with their asinine assumptions.

    I don't think Jay Z is a weak headliner by any means. But I know (can't prove) he wasn't 1st choice. The show at the Staples should be proof right there.
