Roger Waters, The Who etc add second weekend - tickets sold out already Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Tuesday, 10 May 2016

Desert Trip concert - October 2016Due to exceptional demand, for what is looking like an exception concert, a second weekend has been added for the Desert Trip festival being held in October at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California (the site of the annual Coachella Festival). The Desert Trip event features a stellar line-up over three days:

  • Friday: The Rolling Stones - Bob Dylan and his Band
  • Saturday: Paul McCartney - Neil Young and Promise of the Real
  • Sunday: Roger Waters - The Who

Tickets went on sale yesterday (Monday, May 9th) for the initially announced weekend of October 7th, 8th and 9th, 2016, but due to exceptional demand - with all types of tickets, from general admission, standing at the rear of the venue, through to various VIP/grandstand tickets/pit tickets, sold out - the following weekend, October 14th, 15th and 16th, 2016, has been added, with the same performers appearing on the same days of the week.

Unfortunately, for any of you keen to make these new dates, those also have sold out pretty much instantly. There are a number of tickets to be found on secondary ticketing markets which is a real shame, as clearly these have been bought up by scalpers/touts purely to make a profit, rather than allow the fans to get tickets for the advertised prices.

We hope that there will be filming of these shows to make them available at some point for all of us who will be missing out on a great event, but as yet, have no information on anything like this happening. Should this change, we will let you all know via these pages (we've already had a number of people ask if there will be a DVD/Blu-ray release, or a TV broadcast).
