They're going to be in France on June 30th 2012, so how are they having a US tour for the whole summer and going to Paris?
Have they been known to bounce back and forth between Europe and the States?
U.S. April/May/June Europe July/August U.S. or Europe September/October
Arcade Fire did it last year, as well as dozens of other bands. It allows them to hit up some ampitheatres and Bonnaroo, Coachella, or other early festivals and then switch over to Europe and play their festivals.
Not sure, this was probably mentioned already. Buuuutttttt Roger Water's supposedly is going out on a Dark Side tour... think there may be a roo stop? Friday late night Dark Side action could be pretty bad ass.
Methinks you're confused. He's doin' another tour of The Wall though.
Steely Dan cannot headline any major festival. That's just simple fact. But I can definitely see Foo Fighters and Random Band being booked. I can see Foo Fighters being Saturday, but it's the Friday night band that's throwing me off. Between KoL and AF, the last two years have shown that Friday is shifting towards up-and-coming headliners. But who is up-and-coming in 2012?

KoL wasn't really up-and-coming. They had already headlined Lolla the year before. The only trend I think matters for Friday is "modern rock band" and even that isn't a fomula I think they'll stick to religously or anything. Coldplay, Muse, The Killers, Green Day, and Foo Fighters all make sense there.
Of course, if Saturday is Radiohead or RHCP, they likely go for a more "classic" act in that spot, like their attempt to book Prince for Friday and Radiohead for Saturday last year.

Also, I just want to say that everyone in here is completely insane if they don't think we're getting Coldplay as a headliner. It's going to happen, mark my words, so you might as well just accept the idea now and get used to it.
My cousin's wedding song was "Yellow". It was an outdoor wedding, beautiful day out, and as soon as the song started clouds rolled in and it washed out part of the reception. Coldplay nearly ruined my cousins wedding. I will take a nap during their show, if they're at Roo, out of protest (and for basic survival needs, like sleep).

jhamm...I expect better from you. There is no way in hell, heaven, purgatory, middle Earth, whatever that Paul fuckin' McCartney would be given a Sunday slot. None. Not gonna happen. Ever. He would be Saturday without a doubt.
