A concert for the ages will take place in October.
FOX's Laura Ingle presents "Bonus Track":
Tickets for 'Desert Trip' dubbed the Coachella for classic rock are going on sale this Monday. The three-day mega concert that took years to put together with some of the biggest rock stars on the planet is now set with: The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, Oct. 7-9.
So how did all these artists agree to be on the same bill? Secret meetings and careful negotiations were made by Paul Tollett, the CEO of concert promoter Golden Voice. Tollett made a list of six acts and traveled to see them play so he could sell them on the idea of the show, promising if he couldn't get all six to sign on, they wouldn't do the festival, it was all or nothing. The pitch worked and now these legendary bands are ready to make serious Rock and Roll history.
I'm Laura Ingle and that's your Bonus Track.
