Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones are in negotiations to appear at a mega concert to be held later this year.
The Who and Roger Waters are also reportedly in the frame for the event which is being organized by Goldenvoice, the Los Angeles-based promoter that stages the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the concert will be held between October 7 to 0 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio.
The LA Times claims that Dylan and the Stones would play back to back on October 7. They would be followed on Octover 8 by Young and McCartney.
The Who and Waters would play on October 9.
“It’s so special in so many ways,” the paper quotes Neil Young’s longtime manager, Elliot Roberts. “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.”
The LA Times story says an official announcement is expected in coming weeks.
