What a lineup of bands. Only Zeppelin missing to make it complete.

Would also help if it was 40 years ago. But still cool.

Now instead of charging a fortune and paying the bands 7 million, how about lower the cost and donate the proceeds. I don't think any of them need 7 more million.

I am with you. I have seen all of them any times and no way I will put a 2nd mortgage on the house to see them now. Especially in a crowd like that.

It is a cool lineup though. I hope when Mick, Keith and Charlie get their 7 million that they throw Chuck a bonus too.

As one off shows probably a yes for each. At this kind of mega outdoor event at crazy prices, no thanks.

We used to talk about bands from the 70s and now we talk about bands who are in their 70s.

Call Guiness as a festival made up of artists 70+ must be a record of some sort.

some thoughts to discuss if you want...

The Stones-yeah i know all the negatives,but on a good night they still bring some good times & yes,Chuck is fun to see.

Waters-to be kind,i'd be interested in Gilmour covering Floyd.enough said.

Dylan-i'm a huge huge Bob fan...at the very least he'd need to adjust the setlist to make it work in this kind of thing...

The Who- The who? haha...but,not too bad,but i've seen their Hyde Park show about 400 times so the novelty has worn off

Neil still brings it..."it" could be great R&R or animal noises from the new album.

Paul-awesome,just hope the voice doesn't crack.

No matter fans will have fun & these guys will bring home truckloads of memories...i meant cash!

ROCK ON!!!!

With all due respect to the posters here, $400 to see all of these bands for three days is extreme? How much would it cost to see any of them on their own? Think about adding up what THAT would cost.

I agree about huge festivals and yeah I am getting too old for them.

But it seems like a bargain to me.

I think we all know, these tickets will most likely sell out and quickly.

This show is not for me, but there are plenty of takers out there, that I am sure.

Of the 6, Sir Paul is the only one I have never seen live, but this type of huge event is no longer for me.

$400 is a bargain for the threeday GenAd...surprised the heck out of me. That said, wonder how difficult it will be to obtain one of those. It being on the other side of the country makes it a nogo for me regardless...even though I'm close to being over festivals (big crowds), I'd probably make an exception for this is proximity was on my side.

$400 is fair if you want to say you were there. But with all those prices you get further away for the low price and you are stuffed with everyone. At least modern shows have screens to watch I guess. Definitely a great lineup especially for younger people who may never have seen any of them. All of them are capable of great shows still which is pretty amazing if you think about it.

Dylan debatable but I never understood him at shows 40 years ago either so...matter of taste maybe? I have seen him quite a few times too. One show I honestly didn't understand a word nor did the two guys with me. We enjoyed it more from a comedic angle. The guy beside us was going on and on about it being the best Dylan show he had ever seen. I speak English and I know for a fact that Bob was not speaking in English that night. More like a slurred Monk chant as words flowed into each other to make a constant sound until Bob would come up for air and then start again. Impossible to understand a word he said between songs. People just stared an kind of cheered. I think Bob told some terrible tale and then we all cheered because he got pissed off. I guess only the guy beside us spoke whatever language that was.

The aforementioned Hyde Park show convinced me not to see the Who this last tour. I'd love to see Pete solo in a theater setting but really feel Roger is a caricature of himself. I don't know how Dylan can translate to a gigantic crowd But I'm glad the promoters included him with those other pillars of rock and roll. I've had a tremendous time at the last four Roger Waters shows I've attended. More so then I enjoyed Gilmore at Tower Theater back in the 80's. I did enjoy Gilmore's Pink Floyd.

Sir Paul, the Stones, and Waters can easily entertain a huge crowd.

I think the prices are fine, but this year I'm committed to DelFest and have a ticket for Lockn'. Two festivals for this 56 year old are about as much fun as I can stand.

while i differ with you on the above,i realize you may not be aware of the current(last 2 years or so)approach Bob takes to singing,how the band plays,their intent,etc.I've seen him & i listen to the cd's that i get of live shows,the last & upcoming album & you are simply not up to date.And,as us hard core Bob fans know every move he's made,every era is met with the critique from the more casual fans who just don't get what Bob is up to or might be a bit intolerant of anything that may indeed be imperfect.But he has always & continues to evolve creatively.

On the other hand,as i said earlier,to "fit" well in this festival thing he might have to adapt approach,setlist,etc.His voice has been quite clear & pleasant for the most part,particularly on the standards.

How 'bout they give back to the fans who gave them all they have? Play for free and provide that nice catered food just to say thank you. All I know is when heaven gets established on earth Ticketbastrd will be no more!

Desert Trip Music Festival Expanded to Two Weekends
By Michael Gallucci May 9, 2016 1:19 PM

The Desert Trip music festival, featuring some of classic rock’s biggest names, has been expanded to two weekends. The same lineup will now play sets on Oct. 14-16 in addition to the previously announced Oct. 7-9 dates.

The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and the Who are all scheduled to perform at the weekend-long music fest, which has been called a classic-rock version of Coachella. The shows will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., the same location as the hugely popular Coachella concerts every year.

The new dates have been added “due to overwhelming demand,” according to a press release. All of the shows will start after sunset, and will include full sets by the artists. The Stones and Dylan will play Friday nights, McCartney and Young on Saturdays and Waters and the Who on Sundays.

General admission tickets start at $199 for one night. Three-day passes and reserved seating packages are also available: Three-day general admission passes are $399; reserved floor passes are $699, $999 and $1,599. Reserved grandstand passes for the entire festival are $999 and $1599. Standing pit passes for all three days are $1,599. Tickets for both weekends go on sale today.

Rumors of the festival began circulating a few weeks back. In the week since the official announcement of the shows, anticipation has been high for the event that some have humorously dubbed “Oldchella.” The fest has also come under some fire for the high ticket prices, as well as the rumored $7 million payday for each artist.

The minute someone says they just don't get Bob Dylan - or that he has a terrible singing voice - is the minute I have heard all I need to know about said person.

Music appreciation is highly subjective, I understand.

My 2 cents:

Cool idea, even Daltry mentioned that it was cool that they are still alive and able to do it, which says a lot really.

As far as pricing is concerned, for any that are surprised, you live under a rock. I have said it many times, supply and demand is what is at play here. Do you think you would have a better chance getting a $30.00 ticket vs. a $1500 ticket? Not in this case. As a matter of fact, the $30.00 tickets would very quickly get resold for $1500 anyway so why not give it to the bands and the people taking the risk to put this on.

Like many here, I have seen all of these bands many times over the years and have my opinion on whom I like better. What I will say however is when you put on a festival like this where all are in the same place at the same time competition occurs and these dudes are no different than the high school battle of the bands. Set-lists will be carefully constructed and rehearsals coming into the show will be intense. This just may be the best shows these bands have done in years to prove to each other who is the proverbial headliner.

Stones, Who, Neil and Macca all good with. Dylan, never really been a fan of his live shows and I have seen a few over the years,a and like some others, Gilmour over Waters would be my preference, actually, this would have been a cool spot to reunite these dudes. To that end a Zeppelin option would have also been cool, but we all know where that stands.

In regard to the catering and stuff all I will say is - its about time. The food at these festivals, for the most part is just **** ty. Nice that you can actually get a real meal with real food if you so wish. If you are camping you have that control your self.

Last but not least, the working for free commentary continues to be laughable. No one does it. As far as we all know they just may be donating a bunch of money from this to charity. Many of these bands and members have charitable trusts already in place and most are philanthropic. I say if ya can get it - get it!!

Nice to see you around, Ken.

LMAO! You are really narrowing down the potential friends available. Hope you dig a little deeper than that.

I get Bob. I just don't like his voice. I find it funny how people that enjoy Dylan always claim that those who don't like him don't get it as if it is a mystical journey to enlightenment. Could be that he sings out of his nose and is really hard to understand at times.

I have worked Dylan shows and it is a weird scene backstage. Most of the crew are not allowed to make eye contact or speak to Bob. Doing so is grounds for immediate dismissal. If that isn't messed up then I don't know what is.

It is OK because we all don't need to like the same things and my feelings can't diminish yours. And the same goes both ways.

But don't judge those who are not fans, we are just inferior but still nice people.

Oops, should have said a bit more I guess.

I should have added - and then wouldn't try to talk about Dylan to that person, ha.

I am well aware that there are non inferior and nice people out there who do not appreciate Bob Dylan



No mystical-ness or enlightenment for me, just recognize the guy as a true original...and I am sure an eccentric as outlined by your story and others I've read through the years.

I guess I meant if someone dismisses him solely on his singing voice, in my humble opinion, that person has not dug into Bob nearly enough, but I am at a point in life where I don't feel responsible to try to convince anyone.

His through the nose voice at times just may be one of the things I admire about the guy.
