Coachella is one thing - backstage at UK and Irish festivals can be pretty grim, cold and miserable, and they happen in the middle of nowhere. I can't imagine it's much fun.

    They had absolutely no intention of playing any festivals this year; they changed their mind at least in part so they could cover their donation-matching pledge - "Something dramatic changed."

    The European Festival season is a big money maker for bands but can be a bit of a grind. Although festivals are great and all for fans, they can be repetitive and constraining for artists-shorter sets, set schedules, varying crowds and weather. There is less control for the artist than playing their own shows.
    I know Radiohead avoided festivals for a long time and have played relatively few considering the number of offers they get.

    very different numbers.

    In 3 LA/Anaheim area shows u2 sold 200,000 tickets on one tour. JZ sold a fraction of that. Plus u2 asking price is off the charts. The ticket gross for the one Rose Bowl show was $9mil.

    Plus the last time U2 has done a festival was 1997 Tibetfest in DC(short afternoon slot) and mayber 1985 Live Aid/Wrechter(Joe Cocker headlining).

    Plus being inundated with a several thousands of u2 will ruin the weekend. And I've seen them 10+ times. Their fans gave PJ Harvey a tepid reaction in 2001 when she toured with them.

    Hey, we also gave Kings of Leon an outright hostile reaction in 2005, so give us a little credit.

    Because when you go to Coachella, you sign a mandatory contract that says you must watch the headliners...
    September 20: Fleetmac Wood @ Los Globos
    September 23: Interpol @ Fox Pomona
    September 27: Merchandise @ Echoplex
    October 17: Massive Attack / TV on the Radio @ SB Bowl
    October 21: Metronomy @ The Regent
    November 13: Run the Jewels @ The Echo

    I assume it has to be because Live Nation does not want to share their cash cow. Everyone has had plenty of chances to see them anyway. Snow Patrol is opening for them in Mexico City though. They should be on the Polo Fields come April!

    For 3 songs, before they flew to their own show in Austria(?)

    AFAIK, U2 have never headlined(evening slot) a multi-day festival. Glasto is in a way their first - only time they done a show anywhere near 2 hours that wasn't their own production top to bottom.

    AFAIK, they closest they come in the Aorth America is USFest in 83(50-60m), Tibetfest in 97(60m?) and the Amnesty dates in 1986(40 minute set?)

    Why are you guys acknowledging "CountOfMonteDisco?"

    Is he some hot shot internet blogger that I'm not aware of?
