Bonnaroo Lineup Announced, More To Come

The initial Bonnaroo lineup has officially been released via the festival's website. Now in it's 7th year the collection of musicians continues to evolve, though I have to seriously question the selection of Metallica. Don't get me wrong, I still count their performance on the Monsters of Rock tour (L.A. Coliseum) along with the ... And Justice For All Tour (Biloxi, MS) as two of my all time favorites. However, I also consider their "Black Album" tour (Mobile, AL) as one of the lamest shows I have ever seen. And how quickly we have forgotten that Metallica signaled the death knell for the traveling Lollapalooza festival (which has since been successfully resurrected as an annual three day festival in Chicago). That said, I am still pretty excited about a lot of the remaining lineup, especially since it is just an hour down the road from mi casa.
