With the re-elect in the rear view mirror, a source inside the Obama Administration is singing like a canary. We’re happy to play Woodward and Bernstein to their Nixon and bring you the as-yet-unannounced scoop: Bonnaroo‘s 2013 headliners will include Tom Petty and a re-united Wu-Tang Clan. Also, fresh off of their spot supporting Jack White and playing Virgin Free Fest, ZZ Top. No word on whether or not hologram-ish technologies will be employed for Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Or, for that matter, Tom Petty’s late guitarist, Howie Epstein.
(We’re talking seven months from now, of course, so if you can’t wait that long for your festival fix y’all can always hop a plane to Fort Lauderdale later this month and get your dolla dolla billz out for the S.S. Coachella).
But we’re just a lil’ ol’ blog, so perhaps you doubt our reportorial abilities? Fair enough, but then again, we also had the scoop on the 2012 headliners. Just don’t ask us who Deep Throat is…and no, despite what you may have heard, it still isn’t Diane Sawyer.
For some reason, I'm inclined to believe this. I don't know anything about this blog Weeping Elvis but something about the way that report was written struck me as legit (except for the part where they claim they had the scoop on the '12 headliners AFTER insider came in here and leaked them). Just a hunch, I guess...and the fact that those three names are all very, very plausible for Bonnaroo 2013.
Also, I'd assume they're using the term "headliner" very loosely since Wu-Tang Clan and ZZ Top are clearly not headliners.
Originally I was thinking BS but it seems the blog post with the 2012 headliners actually was posted 4 days before insider gave us the names. I'm intrigued to say the least
Actually I missread the dates. Insider posted before the blog by about a week. Total BS
