Update….

Looks like someone hacked into the official VH site. :mrgreen:


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Cool that the Baby Animals have been added to the show.

Well, they’ve pulled out already, so no more Baby Animals.

Hunters and Collectors would fit in great on Billy Joel day. Good band.

Wouldn’t it be interesting to see Extreme and Chickenfoot on the the Saturday show?


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

They advertise it as a full set from VH and Joel then put this on their site…

culminating in the ultimate superstar headliners Billy Joel and Van Halen playing full 90 minute sets and a catalogue of smash hits!

That sucks. It is for that reason, among many others, why I do not like festivals.

Maybe they’ll cut out the drum and guitar solos. My bet would be that it will be the same setlist as the 2012 tour minus a few to get down to 90 minutes.

Van Halen and Billy Joel concert promoter jailed for drug offences

Read more: http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/music/van-halen-and-billy-joel-concert-promoter-jailed-for-drug-offences/story-e6frfn09-1226583006083#ixzz2LXV1WviL

A FESTIVAL feud has turned ugly after revelations a promoter planning to present Van Halen and Billy Joel in Sydney has been to jail for drug offences.
Promoter Richard Cartwright will present the veteran US rockers and Piano Man at the Stone Music Festival on April 20 and 21.

But rival promoters have been talking loudly behind the scenes about Cartwright’s rap sheet.

In 1991, Cartwright, a then record company executive, pleaded guilty to cocaine charges.

He was sentenced to nine years jail and found a career as an author behind bars.

Cartwright said in a 2000 interview: “I was standing in the library at Long Bay when this inmate said: ‘Hey mate, you’re one of those guys who speaks really good. You’ll probably write a book when you get out.”’

Indeed, Cartwright penned a fictional work, Platinum.

But yesterday, Cartwright was a closed book.

In a statement, a spokeswoman for the event said: “Richard Cartwright’s role in the event is solely as the management of the brand rights between Stone the movie and Stone the music festival. Richard has no direct involvement in the operations and management of the music event or with the artists.”

She said Mark Spillane, of Ardline Media, and Stephen Duval, of SEQ, were responsible for securing the international and local talent.

The statement added: “We will be making no further comment on this matter at this time.”

But a Stone Music Festival statement, sent earlier this week, had a different tone.

It said: “Although having over 30 years experience in the music industry at the highest level, an event of this magnitude is the largest that Richard Cartwright has been personally involved with.”

It added Cartwright is a “component of a broader group … involved in sport, music and entertainment transactions globally … staging the festival.”

Promoter Andrew McManus, who is touring Kiss, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses in March, criticised the Stone Music Festival on social media.

He posted on Facebook: “Be very careful punters”.

I hope they play 2 hours to make up for not being here in 15 years
