The previously speculated three-day concert featuring the likes of The Who, Roger Waters, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney has been confirmed by Who frontman, Roger Daltrey.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Daltrey spoke of his excitement towards the event: “What a great weekend it will be. They’re all going to be there, on the one spot, at the one time. It’s amazing really. It’s amazing we’re still here.”
“We have to face it, we are [at]the end of an era. We’re the last of a generation. You can see from reading the obituaries lately that we [rock stars]don’t make old bones very well, do we?”
The event will be organised by the promoters of the annual Coachella festival, and will be held on the same site as the festival. It is expected to take place from 7th-9th October this year.
The line-up is also set to include The Rolling Stones and Neil Young. The LA Times have reported that Dylan and the Stones will open the festival back-to-back on Friday 7th October. McCartney and Young will play the following night, with Waters and The Who concluding the festival on Sunday 9th October.
