Blur Steals Headlining Slot From Stone Roses At Coachella Weekend 2

Written by Mike Hohnen on April 18, 2013

Coachella organisers have announced a cheeky shuffle of headlining acts to take place at the follow-up event this weekend. After reporting a bit of a lousy turn out last Friday, The Stone Roses will now be replaced as headliners by Blur for the show this Friday.

Blur will be promoted from their previous role as main support for the night after pulling a massive crowd for their performance and at the end of the day, organisers are running a business. Both bands have a seriously popular back catalogue and performed solid shows with sources for NME commenting on the small but dedicated crowd that formed for The Stone Roses who belted out classics such as I Wanna Be Adored, Made Of Stone and Waterfall.

The pulling power of Blur was just far superior – as it turns out people were more keen to hear a different set of classics including Beetlebum and For Tomorrow. The band also had that extra element on stage when British actor Phil Daniels whose vocals were featured on the Parklife recording, dusted off his mic for a jam.
