  1. #1

    Default Too much Black Keys

    We had them in 2009 and in 2011, did they really need to be booked again this year??

    Well they might have been the replacement for Black Sabbath, but yeah lazy booking and while I like them I will likely be elsewhere during their set.

    It won't be. SHM will close the main after The Keys.

    They'll probably play before SHM on the main. That's my guess.

    Rumor is that No Doubt were the headliner but they had to back out, leaving The Black Keys to be top billed

    Where did you pull that rumor from? Billboard reported that Black Sabbath were going to headline but had to pull out due to Toni Iommi's cancer diagnosis. If the Black Keys were a replacement for anybody it was most likely Sabbath.

    Honestly, I don't remember where I heard it. But "rumor" could mean I started it myself, haha...

    But really, I did hear that somewhere....

    Meh, wasn't the announcement that he had cancer made the same morning that the lineup dropped? That's kind of short notice for Black Keys to suddenly just jump in, and their tour dates had fit with Coachella all along anyway.

    2004, 2007, 2009, 2011, now 2012. They just won't go away. At least now they won't be back for several years.

    Next year they can headline two nights, like Radiohead did at APW.

    Yeah I completely agree. I like them, but I was completely disappointed when I saw them as a headliner this year. =(

    Supposedly Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg were Black Sabbath's replacement which sorta makes sense.

    Sure, that's when they released a statement about the lymphoma. It's likely he had received the diagnosis some time before releasing a statement to the media regarding it.

    Where did you hear this? not that I don't believe you I'm just curious to read the story. Without any information I would guess Black Keys as it explains why they would play two years in a row as a subheadliner and then a headliner.

    I also read that Dre & Snoop replaced Sabbath but figured that it would make more sense if the Keys filled in. Saw them last year and will be watching something else this year.

    It was too obvious to have TBK's tour align with Coachella, not to mention they didn't announce many west coast dates leading up to Monday. Then again Dre and Snoop had to have been in the back pocket because I would think a show like that would have had to have been booked way in advance considering how big of a deal it is. But then again, we've seen numerous reports on it, but nobody has come forward and said anything about it aside from said articles. Either way, I would have like to have seen someone else in that Keys spot, but I love them and I'll see them, it's going to be a fun set.

    Whether they filled in for Sabbath, No Doubt, or anyone else... I think they were going to be playing anyway, just not as headliner. I don't think there was any notice to be made, just a bump in billing

    I've seen them at Coachella every time except for last year when I was at Cut Copy. (I hear the sound for their show was real bad anyway)
    But I totally plan on seeing them this year as a headline act.
    I think I'm winning at the "seeing The Black Keys at Coachella" game.
