    Their set in 1999 made me think they were calling aliens to the field! Always happy for them to be back!

    There are so many more electronic acts that are much more overdue than the chems. With that being said, I would not complain if they were there again.
    10/8 - Little Dragon @ Marquee (Tempe, AZ)
    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)

    It's impossible to not have fun at a Chemical Brothers set unless you're a tasteless asshole.

    I doubt they'll bring the Brothers back without a new album/tour. Costs a lot for a group like that to fly across the pond.

    Hopefully not the Main again. I thought it took away from their performance a bit.


    EDIT* Then again, I saw them at the Fox in Oakland a few months prior. Might have a different opinion if I didn't go to that.

    The only other option than the main stage would be the Sahara and as much as I would love that, I just don't see it happening anymore.

    You might be right. I could see them playing in the Sahara while a Calvin Harris esque DJ played the main, though.

    That would be the one situation where I could see it happening. It's what I am praying for when they finally book Underworld again, although I believe they'd stick them in the Mojave instead.

    Put a Cal Harris type act on main and The Chemical Brothers in the Sahara. Should work out ok.

    I actually walked through the Sahara after I left Little Dragon because I could see it was at least half empty from a distance. Big Gigantic was playing in the Sahara with Calvin on the main and I immediately thought to myself, "This would be a good time to throw a solid throwback act (Chems, Underworld, Basement Jaxx, etc.) in the Sahara." It was odd seeing the Sahara so empty that late in the day and the ground felt like a little league infield.

    We need the Bros to work it out in 2015. If we could get a 2005 repeat set I would melt right there in the Sahara tent. If you were there you know what I'm talking about

    I didn't think the 2011 set was anything to write home about, but maybe i've seen them enough. The very late start also did a lot to kill the excitement. I'd like to see them take back the Sahara with a DJ set though.

    I think this is it right here - it does seem like the Mojave and Gobi have become the shelter for some of the older electronic acts over the past few years. And given the demographic at Coachella these days, I don't see the tent being too crowded.

    I fully support this thread. I would love to see the Chemical Brothers closing the Mojave.

    I wasnt even wanting to watch Calvin Harris, but it felt like that episode of the Simpsons with Rodney Dangerfield as Mr. Burns son:

    Lisa: Where's that music coming from?

    Marge: And all the liquor?

    Homer: It's a party, Marge. It doesn't have to make sense.

    That's funny, I did the exact same thing going from Little Dragon to the Sahara. It was kind of depressing.

    So did I, actually. Walked into the Sahara after Little Dragon at one of Big Gigantic's pinnacle solo sax moments. It delivered the lulz. Then I left.
