does it occur to any of you that this isn't just about money?
Stadium gigs are minus their own staging costs and venue rental. Expenses that acts don't worry about at Festivals.
There's "prestige" bookings in Vegas venues all the time where they overpay for acts. They think they can make it up on VIP, scalping, the tables, alcohol and room rentals. Paul also accepted some last minute vegas arena booking 8-10 years ago when a major fight fell thru and the strip wanted some big "event" that weekend.
In fact, probably got some bands jumping at chance to be on same bill as Stones. Just have a feeling the 10-20 older/reunion acts on this bill will be fantastic.
Just hope Stone Roses are there too, reviews of their past summer shows were fantastic.
Look at who they to come on stage and guest with them at the america shows they did. Bruce, Lady GaGa. I can't remember the other one. But they as a band you would think could pretty much get whoever they wanted to appear.
haha, is anyone else having trouble reading his posts? ^
Either from the bumfuck south or bumfuck south uk.
Obviously British (and the "bumfuck" there is the North and/or West), SupreDumbass.
I saw the Stones in 2005 at Angel Stadium and it was a good show. I would much rather have GV spend that money elsewhere, but I get it.
I'll probably be in the Mojave acting all weird anyway.
