Radiohead has been booked to be the big headliner for “Lollapalooza 2008” along with rapper Kanye West and Wilco. The historic music festival will take place Aug. 1st in Chicago’s Grant Park near Lake Michigan. Perry Farrell the former frontman from Janes Addiction and Porno For Pyros calls this year’s lineup the best ever.
The Associated Press reports:
And Perry is right. This is the best lineup with some of the most amazing talent. A decent Lollapalooza show finally.
But…don’t expect Radiohead to be playing all their old classic songs from “Creep” to “Paranoid Android”. Ever since Radiohead left major labels years ago, they’ve been staying away from their old hits. Radiohead will probably wind up playing everything on “In Rainbows” in it’s entirety.
Amy Winehouse should have been on the lineup, oh well, there’s always next year for her.
Edit to add: I just remembered that Amy Winehouse was at last year’s Lollapalooza so she was already part of the festival once. Forgot.
