    Default Who will replace Green Day at Voodoo Festival in 3 weeks?

    Their highest billed act cancels with 3 weeks so Billie can dry out some more before they hit arenas in late November.

    What acts have the dates open and can pull together the show in 19 days. It's several days before Vedder starts a solo tour in Vegas and New Orleans may pull some heart strings. I'm sure there a couple DJs that could get their arena act in there - though maybe that expects a rock act.

    Why are you asking anyone? You'll come up with a giant list of stupid ideas and then use obscure web postings to support them.

    This thread title needs to be changed to "The Thread Wherein Bumblebee Speculates About Stupid Shit"

    I would support giving Bumblebee a single thread where he can keep all his stupid speculation confided to one place

    Shrillex is playing the festival on Sunday and has a gig in Nashville on Saturday.

    Foo Fighters played last year and may not be able to pull a crew/production on short notice.

    Right now there is a 2 hour evening main stage gap including a 1 hour block when Green Day was the be the only stage running.

    Keys/Muse/Killers are booked.

    Jay-z has been a replacement headliner at 2 festivals in the past and couldn't probably pull a show together.

    Tenacious D finishes up a Euro tour a couple days earlier.

    Have Jack White play 2 sets. He's got an open schedule that weekend and has 2 different bands and extra rehearsed material.

    I have no opinion on answering the original question, but Foo did not play Voodoo last year.

    In 1999 Green Day was supposed to open for the Stones at the Pond in Anaheim but were replaced by Bryan Adams. It worked out pretty well. Maybe Bryan Adams can also headline Voodoo?

    Better replacement than I expected. Both from the same city.

    Probably a better genre fit than Radiohead.

    Plus they haven't played NO in 4 years.
