Default Foos and Pearl Jam at Woodstock?

Got one of those IHeartRadio emails, so not sure how much truth there is to it, but they say the rumor is that the Foos and PJ to headline the 50th anniversary of Woodstock in Aug of this year

The dates for that event were confirmed as 8/16 to 8/18. The Foos are in the UK on 8/17 and 8/19. I doubt they will fly across the pond for one night and back 😕. We can hope though! I would love that since Bethel Woods is pretty close to me 🤷🏻*♀️

Then again, it is a Live Nation event and they'd be creaming themselves over the opportunity to cram all their acts onto the bill - if they haven't already locked FF in, they'd be moving heaven and earth to do it. Besides, a leaker already suggested a month or so ago that FF were likely to be announced.

So I said this elsewhere - the only night they could feasibly play would be the 16th, given other shows. And even that would mean that they couldn't get to the show in the UK on the 17th until less than 2/3 hours before they would be due on (what with distance/time difference). So that seems a non-starter.

People have said that, given the unique nature of Woodstock, they might rearrange to other shows. Which is possible, of course, but would (IMO) be a dickish thing to do.

I'd fly over for that.... But as everyone else has said, they'd have to cancel Glasgow or purchase a tardis.

There is a bit of confusion around this, there are two events apparently.

http://www.brooklynvegan.com/there-a...original-site/

The one already announced is unofficial it seems, and the official one, which Foo are rumoured for, hasn't been announced yet.

I cannot see it being logistically possible for them to do the unofficial one, it'd be insane.

Well, the official one has been announced and that is surely a no-go as well, since it's the same weekend. Aug 16 to 18.

The rumours as far as I saw were only that they were trying to get them, but that was presumably before they signed up for the European festivals.
