Lollapalooza 2006 Lineup Rumors

Update: the lineup has been announced.

It looks like this is going to be the summer of Smashing Pumpkin reuinion rumors, so I can’t wait to see which one actually gets confirmed first.

First Coachella, and now yet again, the Smashing Pumpkins are rumored as headliners for Lollapalooza 2006.

From Billboard.com…

The lineup for the event won’t be announced for weeks, but Chicago media reports have suggested a primary target for a headliner is Smashing Pumpkins, who are making rumblings about a reunion. Thievery Corporation told Billboard.com last week it would be on hand for the festival.

There you have it.

    the Pumpkins already confirmed that they are not playing lollapalooza, why do people keep saying that they are. Stupid people and their wishful thinking.
