Whether or not Live Earth happens in DC or New York, we do finally have a Police date. They will be headlining the Virgin Festival at Pimlico Racetrack on Saturday, August 4th. Last year’s headliner was the Who. This year the festival’s going to be two days (like the ones in Canada) with the also reunited Smashing Pumpkins headlining on Sunday and the Beastie Boys also scheduled for Saturday.
In other juicy new tour news, Keane is coming to the 9:30 club May 29th, and Rush returns to Nissan Pavilion June 23rd. If the rumors are true and HFStival happens June 23rd, I guess I’ll skip it again this year – not a big deal if I go to both days of V Fest, and wouldn’t bother me at all if I got to see Live Earth as well.
