Roger Waters - mega concert rumours, and recent interview Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Tuesday, 19 April 2016

The US media is abuzz at the moment with the rumoured line-up of a massive concert, held at the site of Coachella, the music event which is held at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California. The proposed concert is to be held between October 7th-9th.

We've purposefully held off - until now - mentioning this, as we tend to avoid rumours, but with the gathering pace on reporting, there seems to be some likelihood with the likes of Billboard and the LA Times reporting that Goldenvoice Entertainment, Coachella's promoters, are looking at the following line-up: Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters. Roger last performed at Coachella in 2008. Neil Young's manager is quoted as saying that "You won't get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again..."

With each headliner rumoured to be in line for $7million appearance fee, tickets - if the show goes ahead - are likely to be very expensive, but with so many legends performing, it could be argued that you should get value for money. More information as we get it.

In the meantime, Roger recently spent some time with Tavis Smiley, host of an eponymous show on the US television station PBS (Public Broadcasting Station), a non-profit organisation. The interview aired on February 29th, and can be seen below. Our thanks to Christopher Allard for letting us know about this interview!
