    This is beyond bucket list for me, but my guess is that they are unwilling to trade down in billing/crowd size when they can easily play giant venues/prime festival slots all over Europe and South America.

    IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN.

    Which is a bummer, because it'd bring down the fuckin' house.

    This would be one of the few acts that would get me to 100% come back next year.

    This would be amazing. But, like Phantasma said, I doubt it will happen.
    Coachella 09, 10, 11, 12(WK1), 13(WK2), 14(WK2), 15(WK1), 16(WK1), 17(WK1), 18(WK1)

    It's all about the music.

    I remember when they played two nights at the Fillmore in 2005 and I thought about going and decided to not go. I had no idea they would never be back again ever.

    Do it. The exchange rate is absurd right now. 22 pesos to a dollar and dropping.

    This was the reason I went to the 2 NYC shows they played that year. I wasn't sure the next time we'd get a chance to see them in the US. But even I didn't think they wouldn't be back since. Traveling to see those 2 NYC shows was the first time I ever traveled to see a concert before. I had such a fun time it influenced me to go to Coachella for the first time in 2006. So I seriously have Jamiroquai to thank for me taking the chance to go to Coachella.

    http://www.billboard.com/articles/co...-again-podcast
    http://www.podbean.com/media/share/dir-p2wri-2c99e44

    so to add a little false hope fuel to the fire, lead singer Jason Kay recently did the podcast with Billboard due to the 20th anniversary of "Virtual Insanity" winning a bunch of VMAs (for pretty much still being in the running for coolest video ever). The podcast/interview is nothing special, but in the last 30 seconds of it, Jay Kay offers up without being asked- "Good news, I think we're coming to the states soon". !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is huge news, because they haven't toured the U.S. since 2005. They've released 2 albums and have been everywhere else since. But everywhere else they get top billing at fests and can sell out arenas, as opposed to being a "1-hit wonder (if they're known at all)" in the US that can maybe fill theaters/clubs.

    So they've not been in a hurry to come back here since they don't get nearly the amount of support that they get elsewhere.

    I've thought for years that the only thing would ever get them back here would be if they got a major festival booking. A major fest booking makes touring clubs/theaters here more viable to them.

    So why Coachella, as opposed to just touring whenever or hitting up the summer fest circuit here?
    In the summer they always play Europe. They've headlined major fests and played arena dates since this past spring. Europe is their cash cow, and they'll always tour there over anywhere else in the summer. They have tour dates booked well into December, with those December dates being in South America. So maybe they venture north to the U.S. in January to play a string of tour dates then. But I'm not buying that for 3 reasons-
    1) As I've already mentioned, I feel like they need a major fest booking to make a U.S. Tour worthwhile/viable to them.
    2) Back in early 2012 they did a tour which started in South America and ventured as far north as Monterrey, Mexico by March of that year. They never announced any U.S. tour dates. They just went back to Europe after that date. All the venues they played on that tour? ARENAS
    3) Jason Kay is fighting a bad back and had to postpone a few tour dates earlier this summer. After a long stretch of touring, if he were to take a few months off around the new year to rest up, the timing of Coachella/spring tour makes perfect sense.

    But regardless if he's booked to the fest or not- it would be a cruel joke if he lied to us on that podcast and we didn't get some sort of U.S. tour in 2018. Can't wait for an official announcement!

    Can’t wait to see your backtracking if/when he shows up on the poster.

    When he "confirmed" massive attack, all he said was: "massive attack is happening next year," and he said that all the way back in April 2016. I never considered that a confirmation, and it was kind of silly to do so - he never even said it was confirmed. Much different message than he's given with Jamiroquai.

    I won't backtrack just like I would've admitted I was wrong about Hans and bought you a beer.
