Bonnaroo 2007, Day Three: In the Pit with Police Fans

June 17, 2007 4:44 PM ET

Saturday was another extraordinary day for the temporary residents of Planet Bonnaroo, thanks to standout performances by the Flaming Lips, Ween, Gogol Bordello, Franz Ferdinand and so many more. But one show towered above the rest: Hundreds of fans waited in line all day at the main stage or, "What Stage," in 'Roo parlance (as opposed to the Which Stage, That Tent, and This Tent), hoping to gain admission to the area closest to the feet of the Police. Finally, the gate was opened for these dedicated festival goers about 40 minutes before the legendary trio commenced their set. Rolling Stone talked with a few of these fans as the excitement was mounting... and mounting... and mounting. And, of course, we stuck around for the show as well.

Check back Monday for a full festival roundup.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
