Isle of Wight 2009 Headliners: U2, Oasis & The Prodigy on the Horizon

I will sell my kids (if i had any) to be there if this is true

I already have tickets for Oasis Heaton Park but they can go on ebay to fund this if this is real!

But the rumours are spreading thick and fast

u2 do not do festivals...they do not need to split a gate with anyone, and they dont do things "just in the spirit" they gotta get paid, and paid big. If anything their own stadium tour tends to be its own festivals with a couple decent openers lilke ZOOropa tour

Well this part isn't true, they've done many of events for causes and haven't got paid...

That being said I still think this all false based purely on the fact that Prodigy will be there...

Prodigy??? Did we somehow travel back to the mid 90's?

They have a new album out mid-February, I saw them in a small club in December and it was absolutely incredible, one of the best gigs I have ever been to. Admittedly their output is slow but this year they will make a real impact, the new songs from the album sound amazing!

U2 don't do festivals because they dominate them, not because of money. I know all about them nearly doing an Australian festival during/instead of the Elevation Tour, and the idea was pulled because the fear was U2 fans would dominate ticket sales, screwing over fans of the other 40 odd acts on the bill, and would then 'camp' at the main stage, again ruining the day of the fans there for other acts, who may or may not care about U2 at all. It's also one of the reasons why when they are at charity events/festivals, they often play early, never headline - and you'll notice they often announce their inclusion late, when ticket sales are already (or almost) exhausted.

I don't think there's the slightest chance of this happening, for a lot of reasons, safety and crowd control being a big one. In a crowd that big (60,000, according to the first link), there would probably be such hysteria when the band took the stage that people would get pushed around and/or trampled.

Every year there are rumors of U2 playing this or that festival. I think it is a marketing strategy by the festivals to boost ticket sales. Three years in a row the guy who organizes Glastonbury kept dropping hints that he was talking to U2 and they were going to play only to turn around and claim that the band dicked him over. It gives them LOTS of free press as any U2 rumor travels around the globe through all areas of media. Same goes for a lot of the Bono bashing, it's all to draw attention and get free media coverage. Bono keeps saying he'd love to play festivals but he has also said it just wouldn't work. The drawback to how big they have gotten is that there are things they just can't do because of safety and security issues.

I don't see why this has any more relevance to U2 than another big band. If anything Oasis playing would incite more hysteria due to the type of fans that would be present. I'm not saying that in a negative way on Oasis fans but I've been right down the front at 2 big Oasis gigs and its definitely a different sort of crowd to a U2 gig.

^^^^^^^

Both Oasis and U2 have very loyal fans who would snap tickets up

if they promoters want a definite sell out then they know what to do!

Bono can take care of that.

U2 being there would not cause any safety issues
people would just go mental like at a normal concert

It would be the best festival EVER

They should find the biggest venue in the UK outdoor - make it 350,000 per day and then do a festival there!

It would be as crazy as the 1970 festival that got 500,000 people or someshit.

U2 should do one giant gig for the tour, and call it a day. Build an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, with seating space for five million.
