It's official, the Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roger Waters, and Neil Young mega-concert is happening. The three day show is being called "Desert Trip" and is set to take place October 7th through 9th at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California - the same location as Coachella. This will be the first time all six artists have shared the same bill.
Put together by AEG-owned Goldenvoice, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones will play the opening shows Friday. Paul McCartney and Neil You will play Saturday, and Roger Waters and the Who will play the final Sunday shows. Tickets go on sale Monday, May 9th at 10 a.m. Pacific Time.
The three-day show is set to work like a string of concerts rather than a music festival. There will be no overlap of shows and therefore is being dubbed a mega-concert instead of a festival.
News first started circling about the mega-concert in mid-April when the Los Angeles Times reported that the six acts were in talks with Goldenvoice about the possibility of the concert. Yesterday, everyone except for Neil Young teased the concert via videos released on the internet.
