Pearl Jam, Daft Punk Top Lollapalooza Bill
Stooges, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muse, Interpol, My Morning Jacket, and TVOTR will also visit Chicago's expansive Grant Park this August.
Officials for Lollapalooza, the enduring festival founded by wiry alt-rocker Perry Farrell, have announced the line-up for the 2007 installment: Pearl Jam (in their sole U.S. show of 2007), Daft Punk, Modest Mouse, TV on the Radio, My Morning Jacket, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and roughly 130 other bands are set to take the stages Aug. 3-5 in Chicago’s Grant Park. Additional noteworthy acts include Interpol, Muse, Iggy & the Stooges, Amy Winehouse, Yo La Tengo, Kings of Leon, the Hold Steady, Blonde Redhead, Polyphonic Spree, and the Cold War Kids — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, boys and girls. Fan-apalooza’s can purchase early bird tickets now via Lollapalooza.com for $165; early bird tickets are only available while supplies last, and passes will run $195 thereafter.
