I just read from a reliable friend on Facebook that the campers can hear No Doubt soundchecking.

WTF? Could it be that all the "The Cure won't play 2 1/2 hours" conspiracy theories were right?

I'm not there, so I don't care, but you guys have fun arguing.

It's been nearly two hours, and no updates. I'm calling shenanigans and leaving for the festival. If I am wrong, maybe it will help me with my Kills/Cure overlap.

It's a valid possibility. I just read that they're all together and touring, even without a new cd. Just to get the ball rolling. Coachella would be a great place for them to kick it off.

And what would be the point of this exactly? If they were going to announce No Doubt, they'd do it sooner to maybe get a boost in ticket sales?

The Cure are going to play for nearly 3 hours, and that's the truth of it.

maybe one of the bands soundchecking played a no doubt cover?

No further update from my friend. No shenanigans from me...just reporting what he said. He's not the type to try to start crap, but who knows, maybe he's pulling our leg.

So...this was just BS?

Maybe Gwen jumped on with someone else who was soundchecking?

HA! Maybe the sound guys were fucking with the campers.

I'm glad this didn't blow up into anything big. I was just passing on what I heard.

There was also a moment during the day where I was sitting under a shade tent and my friend Kiley freaked out because she thought she heard gwen coming from the outdoor stage, but we realized it was someone else. Maybe someone else thought that too?

I just remember sitting in the one of the shaded areas before YYYs and talking to people about what they wanted to see later.

Someone mentioned "who ever comes on after the Cure". First I heard of the rumor, but the people said they heard No Doubt was going to play. Someone else said Michael Jackson (I laughed, not sure if they were messing around).

I was pretty sure The Cure was going to play for 4 days though since their catalog is so large.

I definitely THOUGHT I heard No Doubt soundchecking from the main stage. Only bits and pieces of songs were played, and I was pretty sure the drumming sounded live. Apparently not. Probably the sound crew was just fucking around fixing things or something while playing tragic kingdom. Or maybe yeah yeah yeahs were sound checking No Doubt songs. Karen O can probably do a pretty convincing Gwen.
