Very "weak" headliner for Sunday night give the other big names floating around. A somewhat "lazy" booking.
They wouldn't open for a Stones with a 75 minute set.
Arena dates can be moved around, where as insurance companies/promoters might be hesitant on a pair of fixed weekends.
Have you seen their live act? Pretty electric. Look at it this way. Would MJA and RSW stop trolling the boards ceaselessly if Drewski suddenly had a fatal stroke? No chance in hell. I'm just hoping Mike D/ Ad-Rock/ MMM will still take the stage in some form together. If they do take the stage, I find it hard to believe they would play specifically non-Beastie songs when they could easily mix it up with special guests.
I mean... have you ever done something for thirty years, then tried for some reason to stop? That should be why enough for you in itself.
Confirmed according to Monklish.
U2: 6/28 @ United Center
BB didn't "tour" for 30 years. They did 1 full tour in the final decade of Adam's life.
Unless you're the Grateful Dead, music doesn't specifically revolve around touring. Playing music is something you can avoid for months at a time, at best, but it always comes back to you. I look forward to seeing where they take the act.
I had a dream that Usher, Arcade Fire, and The Rolling Stones are headlining... Bad sign?
ps Paul, do you remember when Beasties were supposed to go on tour with Rage in 2000? Ah good memories
Their show wasn't as good as Sonic Youth/YYYs, but it was a good time.
