    Paul McCartney, the Who, the Rolling Stones and others officially set to perform at same mega-festival
    BY Peter Sblendorio
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Tuesday, May 3, 2016, 12:53 PM
    The greatest musicians of the '60s and '70s are ready to rock the same stage.
    Legendary acts Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Boy Dylan, Roger Waters and Neil Young are officially coming together for a music festival for the ages this October.
    The iconic rockers will all perform at the three-day Desert Fest in Indio Calif., which runs from Oct. 7-9 at the Coachella festival grounds.

    Paul McCartney is one of the six major names set to perform at the Desert Fest.
    The Rolling Stones and Dylan will kick off the all-star weekend with back-to-back performances that Friday night, with McCartney and Young taking the stage the next day. Waters and the Who will close the modern-day Woodstock out that Sunday.
    Tickets for the weekend-long extravaganza go on sale on the Desert Fest website on May 9, with prices ranging from $399 to $1,599. Single day tickets are also available at $199 a pop.
    The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers each teased the event in recent days by sharing short videos on social media that each included the same cryptic word: "October."

    Mick Jagger (c.) and the Rolling Stones will kick of the weekend with a performance on Friday.
    The Who frontman Roger Daltry, meanwhile, hinted the mega-festival could be in the works in an interview with the Toronto Sun late last month.
    "It's a fantastic idea for a festival," he told the newspaper. "It's the greatest remains of our era. I'm glad we made it."

    Roger Daltrey (l.), Pete Townshend and the Who are set to perform that Sunday.
    Similarly, Young's manager Elliot Roberts told the Los Angeles Times in April that such an event would be a dream come true for classic rock diehards.
    "It's so special in so many ways, because you won't get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again," he said. "It's a show I look forward to more than any show in a long time."

    Bob Dylan will perform on the festival’s opening day, as well.

    Yeah, I just saw The Who last yr. Very good. You bring up a good point: outdoor
    shows suck. Everything is mostly good, just the sound, and that is what you are
    going for. (Rush last did this a couple of decades ago because of this.) Then there is the price. You know it will be a few grand. Plus will all acts get full sets?
    I am debating seeing Mr. Mumbles (Dylan) and it would cost around $100.
    Why not just see them on tour on their own tours? Could save a lot of money too. People are not going crazy over this, but you will see this will end up selling
    well, if not selling out.

    I've seen The Who and The Rolling Stones and they were great shows.

    I've never seen McCartney or The Beatles.

    Still, I have no desire to go to this.

    This is one of those things where there will be all these levels of tickets. I bet general tickets will be 800-1000 bucks and you can get all these upgrades for up to 5k
    They are gonna get blood outta of a stone on this one and people will pay

    Have no desire to spend several hundred dollars to sit a mile away and have to listen to middle aged lawyers, accountants and soccer moms sing every word to every song.
