Report: That upcoming Stones / McCartney/ Dylan mega fest is going to be a bit pricey

UPDATE: details of the festival have been released.

With Coachella and Stagecoach now behind us, we can start looking at (and wildly speculating about) the reported fall concert at the Empire Polo Fields featuring the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Who, Neil Young, and Roger Waters. While the lineup is amazing, according to one report, you better start saving up all of your nickels and dimes.

The bands all but confirmed the show on Monday and the Los Angeles Daily News reports that the concert is set for Oct. 7-9 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio – with the show breaking down like this:

  • Fri., Oct. 7: Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones
  • Sat., Oct. 8: Neil Young and Paul McCartney
  • Sun., Oct. 9: The Who and Roger Waters

Of course, acts like that do not come cheap – and this is where you saving up your money comes into play, via Daily News (emphasis by me):

This weekend festival of legends is right up there. One source says each night’s top headliner could each be paid as much as $7 million for their shows. Ticket prices for individual nights as well as three-night packages could be the most expensive for any concerts ever.

While the report does not clarify what “most expensive for any concerts ever” would actually be, you still might want to go ahead and ask your boss for a raise today – just in case.

The shows will have 99,000 attendees per night, according to the Daily News, and, like Coachella, the fest may take place over two weekends.

And with the spring fests now in the rear view mirror, we should be finding out the details with an official announcement soon.
