GV skipped them 16 Coachella in a row. PJ prefer playing to "their" audience, rather than the 80,000+ pre-sold W1 passes that may not care about them.
ACL TV show for an ACL headliner?
RHCP headlined without Frusciante.:sorry
Because all Lolla passes sold out.
Haven't 2nd liners sold more albums/tickets than Blink? Stuff like Ellie Goulding or EDM? Keys?
Sabbath have announced their final ever show, and it's before Coachella 2017.
Coachella has had a 6 month period before the fest where headliners can't have proper shows(roughly 2nd week of October). Were talking full sets with full production with money they keep. This...
I don't think GV have ever seriously asked Beyonce/Gaga/Rihanna/Katy/Madonna to be the top line acts on their poster. They seem quite protective over the Coachella brand and the top line - even if...
It's not INXS[smiley face]
All of the main creative people for the group are still alive.
They should do well selling shirts at the merch table.
Not who I was thinking, but SP at Riot could be great way to kick off their reunion with Iha. Not sure if anyone cares if it's Melissa instead of D'Arcy.
My six clues are structured in a way where it could be about 4-5 different bands.
AFAIK, never reunited despite many generous offers.
They toured, released music and a documentary in the past 2-5 years.
Direct from someone in the inner circle who let it slip.
Nothing that could headline any of the 3 day Coachellas, from any year past/future.
I think one of the "classic lineup" band members is...
Do you have the Gov Ball link? Curious to read even if I know it won't have any surprises on it and couldn't find with a dozen google word combinations.
GV have very specific standards with who...
Other than Jay-Z pulling a favor or some BET/minor Fest, why have no major festival in the US has gone after Beyonce or Rihanna?
Coachella actually booked and announced Adele in 2008, but she...
They already have their 2017 reunion headliner locked up:
-quiet for at least 8 years come show time
-reunited at least once before
-singer/leader/frontman(one or combination) got a big enough...
Some of Noel's US box scores are surprisingly low. Oasis might come sooner rather than later.
I think 5 months between Kanye's last LA show and Coachella 2017 puts him out of the running.
I haven't seen any reason why Bey is any more plausible than Katy or Rihanna or Madonna or Gaga being...
Any one who is already a fan has had a dozen chances to see them in multiple configurations.
They won't headline and a 60 minute set is too short.
They offered them silly money for the 2016 Oldchella. I guess Roger Waters was plan B.
It's usually 6 months before Coachella, so early/mid October being a cut off.
Jay-z was a last minute replacement for The Who, KROQ/charity or tiny venue shows seem to exempt. Leonard Cohen...
Gaga/Perry/RiRi probably fit most of this criteria at one point. Maybe Madonna as well.
She played the New Orleans Essence festival in 2005/2007/2009. Coachella would be her 5th or 6th festival...
Isn't Robert Plant in California for a 1-off in early October for that David Lynch thing?
It'd be easier to ask fans for their cancelled 2016 passes to be rolled over to 2017.
Keep Levititation solvent and allow to settle their claim with fans nagging.
Vancouver outdoor Levitation got moved to a 1,000 capacity club and from those who attended was never more than 3/4 full. Plus no room for booth/food income.
Levitation Vancouver isn't much of money maker yet, if at all.
Kinda like the Lakers NBA basketball team leaving the 10,000 lakes in Minnesota for LA in 1960?
Will this project exist after the US election?
BV didn't publish time zone info and Manchester Tenn is CMT.
He walks to the throne at the start of the ACDC show in full view and does move around a bit for some songs. Better mobility which each date.
The Cure set up at the Key could hold 12,000 tops and I doubt they ever sold that many tickets at a show in Northwest.
It also implies that half of the tickets sold at Sasquatch 2008 were single...
On the very outskirts of Vancouver has 2 venues(abbotsford & Coquitlam) that sometimes have "name" acts that don't have public transit to get home Depending on genre, some of them 1/3rd of 1/2 drop...
Did Sasquatch 2016 fail to sell tickets because promoters fucked up or because of Cure's fan base being too old to be interested in a weekend festival.
Also, Cure did the...
LCD were aired live but are missing from the web stream replay.
Yet it's the biggest US tour they've done since 1992 or possibly ever. They have done OK at other festivals in North America the past couple years.
AFAIK, the Vancouver venue has public transit...
The plus 30 crowd want to go but promoters sometimes forget to book stuff for them. Only selling 4 day passes and not single day also annoys the 30+ crowd big time. Sasquatch easily left a million...
7pm PM west coast and the James Hunter replay just started
video feed might repeat before tomorrow afternoon
Cure hits dried up 25 years ago. How does 2008 get significantly more people than 2016?
There were young fans at the Cure show I saw 2 days ago.
07:10 pm – Autumn Comets
08:00 pm – The James Hunter Six
09:10 pm – Suede (replay)
10:10 pm – Acoustic – Beach Slang
10:25 pm – Explosions in the Sky
11:40 pm – Destroyer/Suuns...
It's on the news page of the Primavera website.
Not that I can figure out the time zone difference between Barcelona and the west coast.
Saying people under 30 don't care about the Cure is factually incorrect. The Cure did well at Sasquatch 2008 and other major festivals since then.
Northwest fans don't like the format/price of...
Point taken. Let's see if the 4 day Lolla thing will stick around for 5 years.
Though those that live in/around Chicago can still go to work on Thursday/Friday/Monday whereas Sasquatch attendees...
Primavera, Werchter and Pemberton have 4th(even 5th?) day stuff but it's all lower/local stuff with the odd mid tier act.
Pemberton had J. Cole on Thursday, but they did wait as late as possible...
To do the whole thing, Canadians have to get Friday/Monday/Tuesday off work. How many other festivals worldwide have major acts on all 4 days? Several have local/modest sized acts play the Thursday...
The Vancouver Cure show had a healthy number of under 30 and under 20 fans present.
Scalpers were still getting $100 per ticket after they hit the stage which makes the lack of single day...
I know the fallow year reasoning. Just saying it may have inadvertently helped with the 4 decade legacy of Glastonbury.
I do wonder if festivals will "hit a wall" after about 10 years or so. ...
