    Too bad the festival was named by a 3rd grader

    Apparently my submission of: "Big Rock/Rap Concert at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, KS" was not accepted...too bad, I had the bumper stickers all ready to sell...

    It's pretty much an oxymoron. Anything with about 2/3 of those bands and especially Eminem should never be allowed near the word "rock."

    I hope they pull in someone like Avenged Sevenfold or Disturbed or something. They need at least one more headliner Rock group.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Why not Neil Diamond, since everybody loves him so much?

    MUSE is worth it. I saw them in Chicago and Minnesota and they were exceptionally good. One of the best live acts I have ever seen and of course one of my favorite bands.

    Meh, you went to ISU though - that automatically makes you more intelligent than the vast majority of the people that live there. I mean, all of the KU and K-State and Wichita State grads running around that place...

    MUSE is pretty big right now in the rock scene. Their most recent tour was huge in the US and bigger overseas.

    The Black Keys are pretty big in the alt scene too.

    I think the only thing making me hesitate is the $159 price tag and that is the "Early Bird" price. (regular price is 179)

    Muse and the Black Keys aren't big enough to pull the rock crowd for $160. IMO, right now, Lazerfest will have better bands for my tastes. I like both Muse and The Black Keys, but I don't know if that will be enough to get me there. If you get me another good rock band, I will likely make the trip though. That's just my opinion.
