One of lesser well-kept rumours has been the concert to be held from October 7th to 9th, 2016, at the Coachella festival site, Indio, California. When initial chatter started up about the show, the line-up - Roger Waters, The Who, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones - seemed like someone's bizarre fantasy. After all, who is going to want to take second billing each of the three days?

However, guards soon dropped, and some of those involved (including Roger Daltrey) started making mention of it as a confirmed event. Daltrey said: "It's a fantastic idea for a festival. It's the greatest remains of our era. It's a great idea. I just hope a lot of normal fans can get tickets before they get snatched up."

Last night, things went up a gear with the release from Waters, Dylan and The Who, of their own, separate teasers which simply had "October" as a caption. Dylan's included his vocal of "Something is happening here, but you don't know what it is...", The Who's used My Generation (the suggestion is that it's the last big concert of their generation before passing the baton on to the younger bands), and Roger? He posted this:

Obviously, as details get released (and with the arrival of this teaser yesterday, it can't be long before more is revealed) we will bring you all the information. Safe to say, whilst the tickets are likely to be extremely pricey, there's incredible value there, and if you can make it to California on those dates, you are sure to have a very memorable time...
