Hip Music…Lollapalooza Aug 3rd, 4th, & 5th

Today starts the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, Illinois. I’m pretty bummed I can’t be there, but they are doing a live webcast on YouTube. I’m going to check that out. Here’s a link to their channel –> YouTube

Looks like a great line-up. I used to see Lollapalooza every year (sometimes in more than one city each year) when it was still a touring festival. Turns out Perry Farrell, the founder, didn’t like playing in the corporate owned amphitheaters. Good for him, but bad for me because I don’t get to the Chicago area that much. I have it on my Bucket List though.

Can’t believe it’s twenty years old now. I’ve seen the tour first in Cleveland, Ohio..then Columbus, Ohio…Virginia Beach and the Washington, DC area. Good times…

I’ve seen the shows in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, missed the 1996 show, but saw it again in 1997. Lollapalooza then took a five year break. I went again in 2003. I had tickets to the 2004 show, but that was cancelled, and that’s when the festival was permanently moved to Chicago. Haven’t seen it since then.
