The anticipation has been building and we finally have some deets about that festival where a bunch of rock legends will be joining forces, which some are referring to as 'Oldchella.' Officially, it's called Desert Times and the line-up includes 1969 Woodstock veterans Neil Young and The Who, as well as Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters.
Once you pick your jaw off the floor after looking at that lineup, prepare yourself for the fact that tickets start at $399 and sets don't begin until after sundown. Overpriced? Probably not when you think about how much each of the artists' individual concerts would be. Factor in this once-in-a-lifetime chance to conveniently see all six sets together (and probably for the last time, ever) and it's definitely not overpriced. But the rational side of me thinks about all the additional costs like lodging, getting to Indio, spending money, and activities to do during the day while you wait for the sun to go down and the show to start We're talking a few extra hundred bucks. Either way, 'Oldchella will go down in history and tickets go on sale this Monday, May 9th.
