Chicago To Host 2 Day Only Lollapalooza (Killers, Liz Phair, Weezer, etc)

Lollapalooza Lives--For One Weekend

By Charlie Amter 27 minutes ago


Chicago is apparently Perry Farrell's kind of town.

The Jane's Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza cofounder has dusted off his famed music festival for a two-day run in the Windy City this summer. The downsized Lolla, coming off a 2004 tour scuttled due to poor ticket sales, will take place July 23-24 in the city's Grant Park, organizers announced Friday.

Formerly a touring road show, Lollapalooza has been reincarnated as a two-day music lovers' paradise, not unlike the annual Coachella festival in California.

The Lolla lineup will feature 70-plus acts, including the alt-rock likes of the Killers, the Pixies, Digable Planets, Liz Phair, Weezer, Billy Idol, the Arcade Fire, Kaiser Chiefs, the Bravery, Louis XIV, Death Cab for Cutie and the recently reunited Dinosaur Jr.

Per tradition, the event will also offer up art, fashion and food. And, in recognition that many alt-rock fans are now married with children, "activities for kids," according to a press release. The so-called Kidsapalooza area will also feature family-friendly performers.

Around 30,000 fans are expected each day; tickets are on sale now.

Farrell and company first launched the circus-like fest in 1991, with the intention of kickstarting the alternative music revolution by introducing under-the-radar bands to mainstream audiences.

Lollapalooza proved successful in that endeavor; hitting at least 25 cities every summer during the mid 1990s, until the fest took a breather in 1998. The tour was dusted off again in 2003, only to experience a few problems in select cities due to weak ticket sales in a bad economy.

Last year, despite a lineup featuring the resurrected Pixies and Morrissey, the venerable festival ran into more serious trouble as slow ticket sales forced cancellation of the entire tour before it even had its first date.

Now, a new group of Austin-based promoters in conjunction with Chicago's Parkways Foundation have come together with some of the original principals to reinvent the festival.

Marc Geiger, a Lollapalooza cofounder and head of contemporary music at the William Morris Agency, told E! Online Friday that he couldn't be happier with the new-look Lolla.

"I'm thrilled with the transition of Lollapalooza from a touring road show to a location-based European-style festival. Plus the lineup is killer!"

The Killers couldn't agree more.

Not sure I need the sweat of 30,000 of my closest friends dripping on me in the middle of Grant Park. I think I'll sit this one out. I went back when Metallica headlined (98/9??). Was much fun, but very 'substancy'.
