They expect people to pay money to sit through Will Smith and that Combs guy kareoke rap and Dave Matthews drone in Philadelphia? The whole population of that city may flee to the Jersey shore until this stuff(not music)is over.

Dave Matthews Drone? I guess with Dave, either you like him or don't. There's no in between. I would go just to see him. However, there's supposed to be a kick-ass party in Toms River, so I'll pass on the concert.

What a crap line-up. There are only 4 names there that I would want to see live. Luckily for me I have tickets to see a proper R.E.M. concert the week after. 8)

REM is a total sell-out. I remember when they were an up-and-coming band playing first time at the Pink Peppermint Lounge on 14th st. They were all energy in the Who style. Now we have all the studio gizmos to drown out what might've been there. Maybe they needed the Beatles or Stones producer. It's been all downhill since the first album.

I've no patience for these festivals. Too much waiting around between acts who only play 25 min each. Yes, I'm old. And cranky.
