What else are they going to headline? Coachella? Bonnaroo? They didn't last year so it may be possible. 2012 may be my triumphant return to Bonnaroo!

How odd, playing a Jazz festival? Would it be an acoustic set then? Looking at the other acts it would seem weird for FF to bust out a full on rock show with White Limo and the like.

I was thinking a similar thing. John Mayer? Eagles? Petty? But I don't know they seem really into rocking out now and I doubt they'd change it up. Could be cool though.

Well they did the Bridge School of course but that was a traditional well known charity event they've played many times, would be odd to take a booking at a Jazz festival to play an acoustic/quieter set. We'll have to see I guess.

I'm so excited about this!!! I already had plane tickets and a room reserved for the 2nd weekend!! I would've been soooo bummed if they were playing the first weekend. With the 2 Argentina shows that will make 3 shows in just over a month.

Well Pearl Jam played last year and they weren't quieted down, so I guess all styles are welcome at the jazz festival.
