The best part about seeing KOL now is you get to hear them biznatch about how all the people that used to like them don't like them now. Then they make it clear they don't care because they have crap loads of cash.
At ACL they were really quite critical of their fans that see them as sell outs. I did enjoy seeing them a few years ago 10 feet from the stage with about 600 other people. The did RAWK.
I do not hate KOL...but they put on a boring boring show. I'm really dissapointed that they are playing yet another festival.
And I'm not here to knock the line-up...but it has recycled a good amount of ACL headliners and bands from the past two years...could they not have been a little more creative....just a little??? I can only bear to see KOL once...and DMB too. I was hoping that they would at lest recycle the best of ACL...DMB and KOL not being two of them.

We are averaging one of the speculated headline acts every 18 announcements.
At this pace we have two more (I predict Stevie Wonder at #72); but then again I'm also hoping I'm wrong and the pace will pick up in prime time (mostly because I would love a huge surprise announcement).
Of course the undercard is absolutely rocking… as usual.
