    I'd throw down $300-400 for that. How many of them will have died in five years? There's not many left to inherit those thrones.


    Rolling Stones, Dylan, McCartney, Neil Young in Talks for Mega Concert

    Six titans of rock music – the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, the Who and Roger Waters – are reportedly in the finishing stages of joining together in October for an epic three-day concert in Indio, California. Goldenvoice, the organizers of the Coachella Music Festival, are in talks to bring the six Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees to the fest's Empire Polo Field site on October 7th through 9th, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Tentatively, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones would open the mega concert on Friday with back-to-back sets; Saturday would see Neil Young and the Promise of the Real performing before McCartney's set later that night, while sets by the Who and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters would close out the mind-blowing consortium on Sunday.

    Management for the artists involved confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that plans for the mega show were "nearing completion," with Young's manager Elliot Roberts telling the newspaper, "It's so special in so many ways, because you won't get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again. It's a show I look forward to more than any show in a long time."

    Billboard adds that, like Coachella, a second weekend of the mega concert is also being discussed.

    The still-unnamed and unconfirmed mega concert would mark the first time that Dylan and McCartney have appeared on the same bill at a music festival, the Los Angeles Times reports. In July 1985, Dylan, Young, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood all performed at the Philadelphia faction of the Live Aid event, while McCartney and the Who took the Wembley Stadium stage for the London concert.

    Dylan tours constantly and it's easy to get good seats at a reasonable price.
    Saw Neil Young 30 years ago and he was so so even back then.
    The Who is, at best, 1/2 the Who. Moon is dead. Entwhistle is dead. Townshend is deaf and Daltry can't hit the high notes.
    Roger Walters is a bitter anti Semite.
    That leaves the Stones and McCartney and, frankly, they don't need my money.
    Pass.

    Eh.. not really my type of line up besides these types of festivals are a very sanitized concert experience. High dollar tickets, mobs of drunks and short set lists.

    I can find their music anywhere, not that I'd want to....I fuckin' hate "classic rock" music......Been hearing the same old shit for too long and I grew up with it....Much rather find and hear new music

    Too many current bands I'd rather spend my money to see. These guys are in their seventies!

    Rogers isn't an "anti-Semite". He's anti Israel's oppression. Huge difference.
    That said, yeah all your other points were pretty spot on
