Well, this morning comes confirmation of the mega rock concert I told you about first back on April 13th. My story was stolen four hours later by the LA Times, the Billboard. But it was right here on Showbiz411 first.
Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Who, Roger Waters and Neil Young will all play Coachella on the weekend of October 5-7, 2016. AEG Live and Goldenvoice are producing.
The shows are: the Stones and Dylan on October 7, McCartney opening for Neil Young on the 8th, and Roger Waters opening for The Who on the 9th. Originally, Waters told me The Who was going to be opening for him, so that changed. In fact. Dylan was supposed to open for the Stones in the original plan. I think the main players all asked to go on first rather than take the stage late, late at night.
Unless the Stones bring Lisa Fischer, there will likely be almost no black people on stage. There are no black headliners. I don’t get this. Why not ask Stevie Wonder, who’s certainly their absolute peer, to be in this event?
