Bonnaroo Bets On U2
Last year, Bonnaroo's attendance plunged 38
percent – partly the result of new major-city fests like Panorama and Governors
Ball. This year, the Tennessee festival scored U2, who will play for a new
crowd between their own stadium sellouts. "I don't think it means 'problem
solved,'" says Tom Windish of Paradigm, which books acts like Coldplay. "I
don't know how many U2 fans are going to go see them out there."
