Are you sitting down? Seriously though, sit down because this is HUGE!!! The LA Times reports that Goldenvoice, the peeps behind Coachella and Stagecoach are trying to book Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Neil Young and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters to perform what would arguably be one of the most amazing festivals of all time this October.
Glad you sat down, huh?
All six have never shared billing at another concert event, and it also would be the first time that Dylan and ex-Beatle McCartney — representing the two most important rock artists of the 1960s — have played on the same bill, albeit on different nights.
The concert is being organized by Goldenvoice, the Los Angeles-based concert promoter that is putting on the show with its corporate partner, AEG Live, according to people close to the situation who could not speak publicly because negotiations with the performers are still being finalized.
Artist representatives contacted by The Times indicated that plans are nearing completion.
Here is how the show would go:
Under the tentative plans, Dylan and the Stones would play back to back on Oct. 7 to open the new festival. They would be followed on Oct. 8 by Neil Young and the Promise of the Real band that has been on tour with him for the last two years, and McCartney and his touring band.
The event would conclude on Oct. 9 with the Who and ex-Pink Floyd bassist, songwriter and singer Waters.
No word on what ticket pricing would be. But there is word that every person in the Coachella Valley (and on the planet) will want to go.Thank you for your support of Cactus Hugs. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date.
