    Only because of Iomi's cancer. They cancelled everything except for Download and Lollapalooza.

    Where did you hear that GV wanted Metallica? Because I'd be all over that.

Plus, adding Rush likely adds limited cachet, again not justifying an outlay in the range necessary to book them with the radius requirement. In short, not enough bang for the buck and vice versa.

    They played the weekend after Coachella 2011 as a part of one of the Big 4 shows.

    Very well stated. You're right, their newest stuff isn't as strong as Moving Pictures or Permanent Waves, but they've settled into a strong veteren status that justifies playing a lot of the new stuff without boring fans. Their new album would be, in the Rush world, equivalent to Bowie's Heathen or Reality albums, or Radiohead's King of Limbs.

    Is this the only "festival"(Sarstock) that RUSH have done in 20-30 years?

    They haven't played many festivals. That's one of the reasons I'd like to see them at Coachella...their music in that environment would be killer.

    Rush is a classic Hard Rock band..


    How many fests did Prince or Leonard Cohen play before Coachella? or Throbbing Gristle? or Gorillaz?

    I'd love to see the Sword there. I think they'd be a great fit. Baroness would also be great - have they played any shows since the bus accident? If not, it'd be awesome to have that first one be at Coachella. I think we'll see QOTSA there as well, and for some reason I remain convinced that Metallica will play. No idea why.

    It seems Coachella has been more generous with headliner set time length since 2008. Rush usually plays 3 hours with an intermission. Maybe a solid 2 hours for a fest? Again, probably won't happen at all, but I would have a freakin orgasm if it did.
