Lollapalooza Canned!
Source: NME.com

LOLLAPALOOZA has been cancelled, just three weeks before it was due to kick off.

The 31-date, 16-city tour was pulled due to poor ticket sales, according to organisers.

Festival co-founder and Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell said: "My heart aches along with the bands and all of our employees, whose hard work developed one of the most exciting and important tours that this nation was to see."

This year's bill was set to feature Morrissey, PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Flaming Lips, and The String Cheese Incident.

Advance ticket sales were below estimates, except in New York, and promoters and organisers were facing losing several million dollars. The decision to cancel Lollapalooza made last night (June 21).

Marc Geiger, co-founder of the tour said: "I am in utter disbelief that a concert of this stature, with the most exciting line-up I've seen in years did not galvanise ticket sales. I'm surprised that given the great bands and the reduced ticket prices that we didn't have enough sales to sustain the tour. Concert promoters across the country are facing similar problems. Many summer tours are experiencing weak ticket sales."
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

(Edit: Here ya go, RK, my deepest apologies)

Okie dokie, I'm going to this festival next week (along with RegularKarate and Pedro), and I need some help sorting through the bands... I'm extremely excited, but a lot of the bands I've never heard of, and many are playing at the same time.

I'm definitely seeing Pixies, Ben Harper, Elvis Costello, Cat Power, The Killers, Ryan Adams, Dashboard Confessional, Spoon, Wilco, The Roots, and Modest Mouse. The other time slots are totally up for grabs, and I need some direction on who to see.

So here goes:

Should I see Gomez or Franz Ferdinand? (I know both of them, I just can't decide which I want to see more)

Louque or Tea Leaf Green?

Bob Schneider or the Slip?

Neko Case or Sloan?

Broken Social Scene or Particle?

Howie Day or The Gourds?

My Morning Jacket or Los Amigos Invisibles?

Neville Brothers or the Wailers?

Ben Kweller or North Miss. All Stars?

Cake or Medeski Martin and Wood?

Louque or Tea Leaf Green? <-neither if you're seeing the Killers

Neko Case or Sloan? <- Neither, Patty Griffin

Howie Day or The Gourds? <- the Gizourds

My Morning Jacket or Los Amigos Invisibles? <second half of MMJ (you'll be at Modest Mouse till after 6)

Neville Brothers or the Wailers? <- Neither, you're getting a good spot for the Pixies (just keep your place from the Dashboard show, it's the same stage)

Ben Kweller or North Miss. All Stars? < Neither, you've got less than an hour to get from The Roots to a good spot for Elvis Costello

Cake or Medeski Martin and Wood?< Cake, unless you want to see Ben "Snoring" Harper

.if anything you must see medeski martin and wood......they get lumped into that jam band scene w/ phush, string cheese, moe ..etc.....but their sh*t is wicked stuff....and they just put out a new album thats their best yet...they are more greyboy allstars than typical hippy stuff.....but yet they are more experimental jazzy stuff...not so mainstream sounding [i.e. galactic]....

plus they look cool:

Thanks RK, I'm still trying to get the schedule straight and that helps a lot...

Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
