If you are, rock on...but I'm not...
Sure, Eminem hasn't toured in a few years and A Perfect Circle or Coldplay are always solid live shows, but wasn't Lollapalooza supposed to be a destination for rare and once-in-a-lifetime performances since it was revived in Chicago a few years back.
I guess The Cars are supposed to be this years "comeback"...
Now I know I shouldn't be gripeing about a festival that brings millions of dollars and one of the largest summer festivals to the city, but for the money that they are asking...is it really worth it at $215 for a 3-day pass or $80 for a single day?
With headliners Foo Fighters, Eminem, Coldplay, Muse, My Morning Jacket (headliner?), Deadmau5, A Perfect Circle, Cee Lo Green, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley & Nas, the Cars, and Ween; it does strike the question of "who is going to play against each other Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night?"
I'd actually be a bit more excited about some of the secondary acts like Cage the Elephant, Deftones, Flogging Molly, OK Go, Patrick Stump, Smith Westerns, and Girl Talk or Kid Cudi on the Perry's DJ stage.
What bands are you excited about or would entice you into making the trip to this years Lollapalooza?
