Roger Daltrey appears to have confirmed reports that a mega festival is being arranged featuring Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, The Who and Roger Waters.
Last week, The LA Times reported that Goldenvoice Entertainment, the promoters behind Coachella Festival, were looking to hold the event in Indio, California – the same site as Coachella – this year between October 7 and 9.
Daltrey has now appeared to confirm the reports, telling Canada’s Postmedia Network: “I think it’s us and Roger Waters on the same day. It’s a fantastic idea for a festival. It’s the greatest remains of our era.”
“I hope a lot of normal fans can get tickets before they get snatched up,” he added.
Reports have suggested that two acts will each night of the festival: Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney on the first, the Rolling Stones and Neil Young on the second, and The Who and Roger Waters on the third.
Neil Young’s longtime manager Elliot Roberts had previously spoken on the reports, telling The LA Times: “It’s so special in so many ways. 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.”
