Rumor: KROQ Almost Acoustic X-mas?

From a listing at Craigslist:
Acoustic X-mas December 13 & 14 @ Gibson Amphitheater
The Cure, The Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots & more. (Thanks to Toberr @ A Pink Dream)

Remember, this is only a rumor, and has NOT been officially confirmed. But it is pretty exciting. : )

  1. Wow that looks likes an Awesome line-up so far....well maybe if it's not a rumor!!! Damn I wished I lived in LA or at least was able to go!

    I believe someone said in another topic that KROQ will be showing a webcast of the show? I sure hope so!!!

  5. I'm going to SP there on 12/3. I hope they are the same night as The Cure. Billy is wicked on guitar. Tickets to these KROQ shows are not easy to get and definitely not cheap.

  11. They'll probably get around 90 minutes if they're headlining.

  12. Kelbel,
    Can you change your time? Cross fingers they play on 13th. I mean, c'mon, 13th. KROQ usually has a heavier rock show one night (which is usually Sun) and a different vibe the other night. My hope is STP is on Sun and Cure Sat. Would love to see Billy play with Robert

  16. I called KROQ today and the man told me that they would be announcing the lineup in a couple of weeks. Hope this helps.

  17. In a couple of weeks?? That gives very little time to prepare.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You may not have much time to prepare.
    But at least you,ll be going to there.

    I'll be miles away, right here.

  25. I live in LA and have been to this event the first two years it was held (91-92 back when KROQ played music I would actually listen to) and it is held at the Universal Amphitheatre. That is a 6000 seat venue which means tix will sell out in minutes. The tickets have also been sold before the line up is announced and still sell out quickly. The event is for charity and face value on the tix is usually right around $100 so the scalpers (of which I am occasionally one) can get $300-$500 depending on location. On the bright side these holiday shows usually happen in SF, Seattle and other places where tix are easier to get so I might hold off putting all your eggs in one basket.

  27. namepa,

    While it's true that many radio stations hold an annual Christmas festival, several have already announced the line-ups. That's not to say that prmotors won't attempt to add The Cure, which is what happened in '97 when they had planned to do only a few concerts to promote Galore. So, there's certainly a possibility they could play other shows.

    Oh yeah, you're a scalper? You are the scum of the earth. F**K OFF!

    I could be wrong but I am pretty sure a concert ticket is a commodity. When I buy collectible records should I get a discount because I really like the band? If I buy a 67 Mustang Fastback, should the seller only be able to get what they paid for it. Gimme a break. I drove around the country this spring following the band on all the shows between Denver and San Diego in part because I scored good seats and was able to turn a profit on them and thus mitagate some of the cost. I paid full price on every ticket. I bought and got them in the same manner as everyone else. If you want to be mad at ticket agencies for scooping up free tickets and for having backdoors inside TM go ahead but otherwise talk about things you know more about.

  29. "On the bright side these holiday shows usually happen in SF, Seattle and other places where tix are easier to get so I might hold off putting all your eggs in one basket"

    deck the hall ball has already been announced, happening on the 6th of dec and the cure is not preforming.

    dont count on the cure doing anymore holiday shows ppl. i have a feeling that this will be the only one.
