Weekends

Woodstock 50 called into question after cancelling on-sale date.

Tickets for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock were supposed to go live Monday.  That’s not happening now — but might not be the beginning of the end, as some feared this weekend.

In response to rumors that popped up that the entire thing would be cancelled, founder Michael Lang told Billboard that they were just “rumors.”  It may very well be that a problem in getting a permit may have prompted the brakes to be applied to ticketing.

At any rate, the show is still on for August — featuring bands like The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Cage The Elephant, The Raconteurs, Portugal. The Man, and more.  But the ability to purchase a ticket will clearly ease the fears of fans hoping to make the trek.  — [eric]
