Given that there are 35,000 seats,unless you pay for the top ones,you ain't going to see much.
Probably more of a trendy event to be seen to attend.
Out of the six acts,Paul McCartney is the one I would be interested in.
Like his current setlists.

Of all of the artists, I'm thinking that McCartney is the one who has well and truly passed his use by date....closely followed by the Who. The rest still seem to be on top of their game.

50% of those who have attended Dylan's gigs in recent years have the same opinion.

Even Bobby's vocal chords are in better shape than Macca's these days!

Well there was only one John Lennon.
So Paul plays it careful,as did Ian Anderson as those of us who didn't watch Bob,discovered.
And after all,seeing a prolific songwriter is first & foremost all about hearing the songs performed.

I would pass by all six of those acts for what we saw at Bluesfest 2008.
Two years younger than Paul M.

The album that Davies was touring in 2008 - Working Man's Cafe - is one of the best albums of his entire career, IMO.
Imaginary Man - Ray Davies

We saw the Who at JazzFest last year and they were great, it was a top band including Pino Paladino and Zac Starkey.

A couple of weeks later Roger got crook, so we were lucky

I'm glad someone shares my opinion of THE WHO. you have to see them live to judge.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

I can't get my head around The Who without John Entwistle.
For me, it'd be like seeing The Stones without Keith Richards.
Yes, they play different instruments , but Entwistle had such a busy style and trebly tone that he often filled the space in their sound that a lead guitarist would normally occupy.

what about the stones without bill wyman or brian jones or mick taylor.
sure the ox was probably the best bass player in rock...IMO...and I miss keith moons drumming...but zak starkey fills his boots pretty well.as does pino palladino on bass.
the show goes on!!:d/

I agree re: Starkey.The Entwistle/Starkey combination were second only to the original rhythm section, IMO.
Palladino plays like your average session bassist and is generally placed way back in the mix, unlike Entwistle.
I just think that Entwistle is one of those rare musicians who is simply irreplaceable .
Even Townshend has admitted that he is forced to play differently these days to fill the spaces in their sound that are there without Entwistle.
He discusses it below, about 8 minutes in.

I'm sorry but I've seen the Who with Starkey and Palladino.
It was slightly boring.
That's just my opinion

When they go low-we go high.

I haven't seen The Who live, but I have watched that recent Live In Hyde Park concert and whilst the band are in good form, I'm thinking that Roger is really struggling with the notes these days. When a frontman needs to have either the crowd, or backing singers sing the key bits for him, it's all down hill from there. Maybe he was crook?
