Six titans of rock music – the Rolling Stones , Bob Dylan , Paul McCartney , Neil Young , the Who and Roger Waters – are reportedly in the finishing stages of joining together in October for an epic three-day concert in Indio, California. Goldenvoice, the organizers of the Coachella Music Festival, are in talks to bring the six Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees to the fest’s Empire Polo Field site on October 7th through 9th, the Los Angeles Times reports. Paul McCartney Plays Beatles Hits, Solo Deep Cuts in Fresno Tentatively, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones would open the mega concert on Friday with back-to-back sets; Saturday would see Neil Young and the Promise of the Real performing before McCartney’s set later that night, while sets by the Who and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters would close out the mind-blowing consortium on Sunday. Management for the artists involved confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that plans for the mega show were “nearing completion,” with Young’s manager Elliot Roberts telling the newspaper, “It’s so special in so many ways, because you won’t get a chance to see a bill like this, perhaps ever again. It’s a show I look forward to more than any show in a long time.” Billboard adds that, like Coachella, a second weekend of the mega concert is also being discussed. The still-unnamed and unconfirmed mega concert would mark the first time that Dylan and McCartney have appeared on the same bill at a music festival, the Los Angeles Times reports. In July 1985, Dylan, Young, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood all performed at the Philadelphia faction of the Live Aid event, while McCartney and the Who took the Wembley Stadium stage for the London concert.
