    There will be no replacement.

    But if there is, it should be ...

    Maybe they can re-use one of the replacements for La Roux and Cat powers last year : )

    They replaced Amy Winehouse with MIA back in 2009 (I think that was 2009), but that's the only example I can think of of highly billed act that dropped & got replaced.

    Regardless of whether or not its the promoter's fault they should ALWAYS replace an act that cancels. It's just plain bad business and disrespectful to the people that purchased admisson.

    Too late to get a replacement in place.

    Besides, when was the last time they even bothered? 2009 (Amy Winehouse)?

    They probably won't add anyone, but it's still shitty. This is one of the biggest names on the lineup. You can't compare any loss of the past three years to this.

    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    I am so incredibly amused by how people think the biggest concert promoter on the west coast (& probably the nation) is incapable of replacing an act due to time restraints.

    I just wonder why they would bother. I mean, they already sold out both weekends... why spend more money on it?

    I would love someone to fill that slot I just don't see the point from a business standpoint.

    No your right... they don't have to do shit but its bad business and makes their integrity look bad if they don't. They can come up with all the excuses they want but they are more than capable of finding an adequate replacement.

    The only two I can seem to justify calling in as a replacement is QOTSA or Beck. It's been awhile for both parties.

    I am thinking a smaller nostalgia band to fill, say Grandaddy, and bumping HTDA to 2nd line.

    I think he's working on a play in NYC in mid April. Topic came up before the Coachella lineup dropped when he was rumoured.

    Are they? I would think two weeks before the festival might make it difficult to find a replacement.

    Well although it'd make sense to replace him since he is so high-billed, I'm not too sure he will be. I laugh at ppl who think that Daft Punk is going to get his spot but I can't help myself from fantasize about who I want.

    The time constraint lies not with GV/Coachella, but with the acts themselves.

    For a larger tier act, there's a lot more involved than just showing up and setting up the backline.

    I'd be perfectly happy if they replaced him with Tom Waits.

    But I am not expecting any replacement but who knows.

    How so? Although you'd have less options I think it'd be the perfect amount of time to find a replacement and for them to still rehearse
