Lollapalooza tickets going on sale

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Yeah, there's still snow on the ground. But the regular-price Lollapalooza tickets go onsale at 10 a.m. Tuesday via the concert's Web site, and prior to the full lineup being announced on April 7.

Rumored headliners include Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, Wilco and one other act said to be of the same caliber — though, as always, Texas promoters C3 Presents refuse to confirm or deny that list or any other act before their official announcement. (One thing's for sure: This rumor is probably unfounded. We hope.)

For now, three-day passes will be available at the "early-bird" price of $175 per ticket. The concert takes place in Grant Park on Aug. 1-3.

Hey Jim,
I went to Lollapalooza last year and it was the first time that I had ever been to a music festival. I had fun at the event and I saw a bunch of bands that I was interested in but would have gone bankrupt paying 15 to 40 dollars for individual tickets. Anyways, my hope for the Chicago music clubs (being empty this Summer and Fall as a result of Lollapalooza) is that they support, promote and "hype" local musicians. Great job on the show and when are you going to do a Classic Album Dissection of Bob Dylan's "Nashville Skyline"?
Thanks
Mike
