    This thread shows how far, far away the original idea for Coachella and why we loved it has strayed.

    I worked the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education benefit last year. I saw his sound check and walked pass him back stage before he went on. I usually don't get starstruck but that was a bit surreal. The guy is a flawless performer & outstanding humanitarian. I'm all for a headlining spot for him. As long as I hear Benny & the Jets that is.

    agreed. Though it sometimes seems like the opposite is the case, I'd wager the majority of Coachella attendees are 25+. If Paul McCartney and Roger Waters can headline, Elton can. He's amazing.

    I thought everything he did after "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" was a bad joke. He turned himself into a complete buffoon. When he played The Bridge School benefit last year as part of T Bone Burnett's show I started walking out to get some food and stopped in my tracks. His new stuff sounded like the Elton of the early 70s - great songs, played with heart and sincerity. I was stunned that he still had it in him. He could definitely headline Coachella if he chose to present himself as a musician, not as a clown act.

    When I saw him last month, I was actually shocked at how powerful his voice and his stage presence are.

    The best part was actually his 5 minute tirade against those opposed to gay marriage. I wish I had a recording of it to share.

    McCartney and Waters are above Elton John. But he could still headline.

    True, except for the minor little fact that Elton can still sing.

    If Coachella 09 is any indication, McCartney can definitely still sing too.

    Waters could never sing.

    Both are still bigger than Elton.

    Still, Elton would be rad.

    not that this is to relevant to Elton playing coachella... but he did just do the music to that animated movie "Gnomeo and Juliet" being able to hear new Elton tracks makes me want to see the movie.... (kinda)

    shut up... but all joking aside. I enjoy the shit talking and criticism, its what keeps me sharp.

    whats ur take on it though...?? obviously its a long shot, and unless this was a deal set in stone before it sold out, the majority of people believe there will be no adds (why spend more money...?)

    but i fail to see any name on the lineup this year that screams $$$$$, and an earlier post from a somewhat reliable b member mentioned something in relation to a 'Prince' kinda year.

    and as far as Elton's tour goes... no west coast dates and the one just added this morning suggests he's inching closer to california the week of.

    feedback....???

    I would watch Elton John if he headlined Coachella. However, Goldenvoice already booked 3 headliners - so it's just not going to happen. I don't really think 2008 is a good comparison. Kings of Leon is much much much bigger than was Portishead.

    kol bigger than Portishead... sure, i guess.

    but the fact they hadnt performed in the United States in close to a decade made them a very big draw.

    Outside of music-geek circles, this is an undeniable fact.

    Portishead was a big draw, yeah, but not quite the popular headliner that Kings of Leon is*.



    *- I don't like Kings of Leon, I'm just looking at it objectively.

    Not really. Big acts tour during warm weather. It's bound to happen that one starts scheduling West Coast dates near Coachella weekend. Happens every year, and gets people's hopes up, but there has never been an instance where the headliners have changed (Prince included).

    oh man - if I could snag tickets to Denver I would seriously consider driving to Coachella via Denver. The friend I am going with to Coachella just moved there. It could work.
