    Foster the People and Rise Against would be the worst/slowest selling AAC of all time.

    I was surprised to see Foster was going to be on SNL, otherwise, this should be a pretty dull Acoustic XMAS but I will wait for the official line up for my final opinion.

    Also, can't wait for all the angry, crying, begging, people trying to get tickets once it sells out.

    to be fair, in the SoCal radio market, i've heard Foster the People on rock, hip-hop, pop, and adult contemporary stations.. almost scary.

    http://kroq.radio.com/2011/10/18/who...ir-prediction/

    2011 is nearing a close, and besides candy, turkey, and presents, it also means KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas is just around the corner. Think you can guess who’s going to be on the bill this year? OC Weekly has already made their prediction. Did they get it right? Take a look at their list and tell us what you think.

    From OC Weekly:

    In November of last year, we took a shot at piecing together the lineup for KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas before it was announced, and we weren’t far wrong. We’re going to attempt the same feat this year.

    It’s traditionally held at the Gibson Amphitheater, and the venue’s concert calendar is empty on Dec. 10 and 11, so we’re guessing those are the dates KROQ is going for. This makes sense when you take into account the announcement of Las Vegas Radio Station 107.5 Holiday Havoc shows on Dec. 7 and 8 that will feature Jane’s Addiction, Rise Against, The Joy Formidable, A Day to Remember, and The Naked and Famous. We’re willing to bet at least half those bands will also be on KROQ’s bill.

    So along with the bands listed above, here are some speculations:

    1. Coldplay: They need to promote their new album, Mylo Xyloto.

    2. Soundgarden/Chris Cornell: Cornell will be in town, as he’s playing the Orpheum on Dec. 16.

    3. Linkin Park, No Doubt, Bad Religion: Perennial KROQ favorites.

    4. The National: Playing in San Francisco on Dec. 3.

    5. Bush/Foster the People/Sublime With Rome/Cage the Elephant: All of them are playing a Christmas show in Tampa on Dec. 3, and bands tend to follow a radio-show Christmas circuit.

    6. Guns N’ Roses: A long shot, but they are touring the States and haven’t announced any California shows.

    Any other rumors out there?

    So far Foster/Cage have been announced for the Seattle Endfest/Deck the Hall ball the first week of december.

    The idea of GNR doing an xmas show is really really funny. Cuz AXL will want to play an hour set on a tight schedule....plus they have arena dates thru nearly xmas.

    Any show that puts Foster the People as a headliner over Black Keys & Florence And The Machine sounds really, really terrible. Both nights lineups sound no bueno if these are the actual line-ups.
    Coachellas attended: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 (W1), 2013 (W1)

    At least it will be easy for people to get tickets and there won't be as much whining in Los Angeles around this show.

    Once when I went to one of these a kid sat next to my friend and I and it was his first concert. He kept saying oh my god, this is my first concert, this is so rad bro, I'm so excited, this rules, so cool...

    And this went on and on for hours. I thought my friend was going to punch him out. I just tuned him out.

    Bit more digging:

    (headliner announced Friday 9am)
    Young the Lion
    Foster the People
    Cage the Lion
    Two Door Cinema Club

    Wednesday December 7th Wamu Theater Seattle. Date/venue officially announced on Monday but 2DCC have it on their website.

    My headliner guess is Rise Against or perhaps slightly more likely Florence. RA played seattle in April & Vancouver a week ago and Florence hasn't been up this way since April 2010.

    So this much i do know.
    Night 2 confirmed
    incubus
    foster the people
    cage the elephant.

    i think janes addiction or guns n roses would be dope for night 1. make me go both days. one of them will most likely get picked. both bands have the same manager too. janes i think is more likely of the 2 tho.
