    for those not wanting to click

    WILD HORSES: During his recent press junket promoting Life, Keith Richards had no definitive answer to the constant questions about the Rolling Stones’ touring plans, but something was then in the process of going down, whether he knew about it (likely) or not. We’ve just learned that the Stones team is very close to finalizing a deal that would bring them to Coachella next April. According to our sources, they’ll pick up a cool $5 million for playing the date; Paul McCartney pocketed $3.5 million for playing Coachella in 2009. This is the biggest booking coup yet for Coachella kingpin Paul Tollett, whose fest has served as a launch pad for numerous big-name tours in the past. Can you say “sold out”? (11/15a)

    I'd also like to add my two cents that The Rolling Stones would definitely be a great headlining act. There's nothing wrong with 60,000 people knowing the words to every song. It really made Paul McCartney that much better.

    This. I would love to see the Stones and was on board with this playing last year. I just feel that 5 million could've been used for other things. But hey, at least we know the audience would look alot different then this years tween-etardathon.

    I feel like last year's lineup was so much deeper because there was no $5M headliner.

    thanks, marco. the mystery continues.

    i have mixed feelings for the Stones headlining. i saw them in '81 when i was a wee lad (and at the peak of my passion for them). i can't remember the last time i listened to an album of theirs. hmmm. the crowd sure would be, um, interesting.

    yeah, shooting that much of your wad on one act could be problematic. both, in terms of having enough cash for other quality acts and in the fact that GV is going to need to recoup that expenditure even more acutely = potential clusterfuckchella II

    Trying not to get my hopes up here. Trying to remember this is a rumor at best.

    But yeah, I would be very much in favor of the Stones at Coachella.

    Yes but we still don't know what the 2011 line up will look like so we should hold off judgment. But I completely agree with you. I for one would watch because I would never spend the kind of $$$ the stones charge for a solo show, plus the Polo Fields beats any stadium/arena anywhere.

    No, the stones would not be a clusterfuck. We would just have an older audience. I would like a heads up on ticket sale dates and if this is true from the promoters because this is going to sell out really quick. Which should make all of us nervous about getting tickets.

    The Stones are 130 years old and they still put on a better more energetic show than most 22 year olds.

    Im not a huge fan but I think they are one of those acts that you dont think you like and then you realize you love like 40 of their songs.

    I don't think they have ever played a modern festival. I know they did a few festival shows in the late 60s and early 70s but never Glasto or any of the major Euro festivals. Glasto tried to get them a year or 2 ago and it didn't work out.
