DAMN YOU PEOPLE STOP MAKING MORE WORK FOR ME
I like the HCB idea. Anyone that's played a reunion show since 04.18.2011. Trying to not exclude bands like Pulp who announced they were reuniting but didn't play any shows for several months.
Of course, it's also considered a reunion if there's no announcement and there's just a surprise on the poster. Been known to happen.
I think it should only be considered a reunion if the act's first show is at Coachella. Otherwise, where is the skill (or luck) in predicting it? It's just a prediction of an act that happened to get back together in the last year. That's a pretty arbitrary way to get a bonus point.
But this isn't my pool, so it doesn't matter.
Yeah, but there's no way to predict that. Say the reunion is announced on the poster, and then they do a bunch of shows in London or some shit prior to the festival.
What if your reunion act is the headliner? Do you get 2 points for being a headliner and 1 point for being the reunion?
The Knife: 4/9 @ Fox Theater
Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields
Yeah according to that article, the reunion act will not be a festival focus, so I doubt they are a headlining act. Just do your best. When the lineup comes out, I'm sure we will all be able to tell who the reunion act is.
Ok, I sort of disagree that Pulp isn't a reunion. They don't seem to have ever announced their breakup, but they took a nine year hiatus, and announced their reunion. Jarvis even called it a reunion. Thoughts?
Reunion: An instance of two or more people coming together again after a period of separation.
It's just too convoluted to come up with rules around it. Like I say, I think we'll all know who the "reunion" act that Paul was talking about is when we see the poster. I'll give all "reunion" submissions a fair shake.
A reunion tour that spills into a second year is still a reunion tour, and they still haven't played here since 1998.
I will be submitting my list this week or the next at the latest
Finally posting on the board for the soul purpose of winning this bitch! Can't wait to get some even more cooler stuff or whatever it is we're competing over.
