Best New-School Legacy Headliners: Muse, The Killers and Eminem
Let's consider one thing before holding Muse, The Killers and Eminem to the standard of more hallowed What Stage alums like Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Jay-Z: Millennials aren't kids anymore. The collective nostalgia is palpable when watching members of that generation – now largely made up of people in their late twenties and early thirties – assembling en masse to shout along to stadium-sized hits like Muse's "Starlight," The Killers' "Mr. Brightside" (perhaps the most thrilling set opener in the history of Bonnaroo) or Eminem's "Kill You." This, folks, is your new class of heritage acts. A.G.
