    Looks great, are Bush still any good without the original members though, or is it just Gavin?

  • Alternadude

    @melonboy they were never good…

    The lineups each day are huge – and I mean huge, endless.

    Wicked, lucky people in North Carolina. I’ve seen Chris Cornell live three times, once with Audioslave, once solo, and a couple of years ago with Soundgarden. I’ve never seen Alice in Chains or Bush live but hopefully I can.

    Us North Carolinians would be luckier if Pearl Jam would play here….

    They haven’t been around in almost 10 years! And I think this is the first time Soundgarden as been here since their reunion.

  • Cobainsweater

    Oh no they didn’t just put Limp Bizkit before the almighty Deftones on that headlining bill…

  • Curmudgeon

    Two of the BUSH members are from the original lineup. And the guitarist joined while touring on the Golden State album in 2001 (about). Their recent album not as “grungy” as past but has some good songs.
    No where near the caliber of Soundgarden or AIC.

    Uhm i didntk now where to put this put i heard from my buddy who works with soundgardens tour crew that they may release an unreleased track eventually (within this year) entitled as he recalled, “STRAFSTAETTERB”
    It reminds me of that weird track from Badmotorfinger. Thanks.

  • Todd

    Yeah I don’t understand the Limp Bizkit thing at all, especially in the slot they have them. There’s several bands on both nights who have had more hits than they have. Strange.

  • MMMM

    Sg and Alice are headlining a lot of festivals together. They might aswell tour together

  • Lennart

    I hope they pull out “right turn”.

  • GwynnKatie

    Wish I might be able to work enough OT to pay for this road trip for my two kids and myself (tickets, motel room, gas, food, etc.)…
    But it is not to be this time around. :::sighs::: Oh well.
