Bonnaroo 2013 lineup includes Billy Idol, Tom Petty and Weird Al?!?



Bonnaroo's 2013 lineup includes such '80s acts as Billy Idol, Tom Petty, ZZ Top and Weird Al Yankovic. That's pretty enticing. Still you'd never catch me at Bonnaroo.

No. 1: It's in Tennessee. And aside from visiting a college buddy in Nashville, I have no particular love of the Volunteer state. And I say that knowing we have little or no Stuck in the '80s fans there!

No. 2: Bonnaroo? I'm not young enough or enjoy sleeping in mud puddles enough for that silliness. And 99 percent of the bill is full of bands I'd never cross the street to hear. And I can only imagine what a bunch of dirty slackers will do to Weird Al during his set.

But the idea of seeing Billy Idol live? Very, very tempting. Come on, Billy. Book a larger tour and come see us. Preferably in a town with hotels and soft beds.
