Bonnaroo 2007 | Lineup Leaked

bonnaroo.gif

How was this done you ask? From BonnarooDetective on the Inforoo boards…

Last night when the bonnaroo website started acting up I knew they must be in the process of updating the website for the artist announcement, so I tried a few different URLs to see if anything worked . . . when I typed in www.bonnaroo.com/artists, a clearly unfinished website came up. I’ve been checking it every hour waiting for an update and about twenty minutes ago it came . . .

    I’m not going to go on and on about who is playing and who is not playing this year, or if it will measure up to the years past. I went to the first two ‘Roos’ and, short of seeing a reunion of dead rock stars past(maybe validated by their DNA), nothing will surpass the epic 7+ hour show that moe. put on during the first bonnaroo, a feat that would later earn them a nomination and win for best live show of the year at the Jammy’s. No, what I am concerned about is the planning of who plays when and where. This, for me, has always been the most difficult decision to make. See, I don’t worry about the bands that didn’t make the cut, they’ve already played in years past, or they’ll play next year or the year after that. I have to worry about things like, “Who do I choose to see on Friday night??” There are just so many choices it calls for a Sierra Nevada or ten, even at 8:00AM [:~)

    FINALLY, a reason to skip Vegoose and go to Bonnaroo! I’ve never seen such an interesting (and diverse) lineup. It might actually be worth all the mud and body odor.

    TOOL haters stay home!

    (I’ve never heard so much close-mindedness out of hippies!)Those of you on the fence, just wait for the show…they are absolutely INSANE live. Maynard is a theatrical genius on stage.

    They should be a nice contrast to the usual lineup. Not that I don’t like jam bands, but sometimes you need a fresh perspective. It’s been the same type of bands for the last few years without MUCH diversity. Nice, but boring. This year’s lineup has something for everyone.

    Besides that, the POLICE??!! They may have been our parents generation, but they’re still a keeper! (Don’t worry, all the big bad TOOL fans will scare those middle-aged yuppies away :)

    Peace!

    Mars Volta heavier than Tool? LMAO…Can’t wait for the Roo…I went to the first (best one) and the second (best lineup) and can’t wait for this one. Too bad Panic got a headliner spot, would have like to see Phil and Friends..I hope they put Panic on Friday or Saturday so I can get a nap in before the late shows…I guess there is an upside

    This is a fantastic show! Stripes, Harper, Franti, Manu Chao, Richard Thompson is a guitar god! I am coming from Newfoundland Canada! Diversity rules – how about Toots and the Maytals, Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam…

    How can a large number of people be down on the Tool addition to Bonnaroo? I’ve seen Tool countless times and really only picked Bonnaroo to see Tool in a festival setting with the addition of David Cross of course.

    It seems people think a Tool crowd equals rowdy fans. Tool shows are usually just a lot of people in a trance with their mouths dropped to the floor because they cannot comprehend what there eyes and ears are experiencing. Tool is hands down one of the greatest bands to see live.

    Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.

    Thats all I have to say to those who think tool shouldn’t be at the venue

    is it really that surprising?

    if you don’t want to come, don’t. if you do, sweet– if the haters stay away, and then maybe those of us who are STOKED about the show can have a good time while the rest of you sit at home blogging about your superior music tastes and inability to accept new experiences into your safe little bubble.

    i can’t wait for the show– lips & ween here I come!!
