DESERT TRIP: ONE AND DONE...FOR NOW


There will not be a second Desert Trip this year.

Paul Tollett, the festival's promoter, tells Billboard, "We loved 2016 Desert Trip -- that was a special moment in time. Maybe someday in the future we'll do something similar."

The festival, held over two weekends last October in Indio, California, featured Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roger Waters and Neil Young.

So for now, that puts to rest the rumors that Led Zeppelin was going to be this year's star attraction.

I have to wonder if Desert Trip's fatewas  sealed after Eagles' manager Irving Azoff countered with the Classic West and Classic East festivals this July with the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Plus, in order to come close to the caliber of acts on last year's festival, Paul Tollett would've had to have booked the likes of Zeppelin, U2, Pink Floyd, The Police, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen, the Eagles, Eric Clapton, Genesis, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, Simon & Garfunkel, Elton John, Billy Joel and The Grateful Dead -- some of whom are on tour this year.
