Not for me. Too many old people there. Nowadays I'm into handsome young musicians. :D
I suppose they'll have to pay Dylan a fortune to make him appear.

Is this a charity event, or merely a white male fest?

Wouldn't be amazed if this turned out to be inaccurate re Dylan appearing ,
but if he does look forward to the live setlist reports for his set and hope that such a ' unique' event also has an accompanying dvd .
Nice paycheck for a bunch of people who already have an obscene amount of money!

Hahaha, this sounds terrible. That said, I think some folks would be pretty into it, so it would be a nice opportunity for them. I know I won't be going - that's for sure.

Not sure how much what Dylan does is driven by money alone ???
Would he , for example , accept a contractual condition that he has to do a ' greatest hits' set to fit in with the overall theme

I think white females are welcome also.

For 7 mil he will find a way to make his conscience and his bank account mesh.

Well, there was a time when it would have made so much sense, but then, Yasgur's Farm was basically in his back yard...

Dylan likes his money as well as the next fella, but he's also very careful and shrewd about his image. He just might decide this isn't for him.

So either way he decides, it couldn't possibly be some standard of integrity?

I'm not sure what you mean by integrity in this case...if he were offered $10,000,000 to play a child porn convention I'm sure he'd have the integrity to say no...but what is the integrity issue here?

Artistic integrity. Not taking a gig simply for the $. Not participating for vanity's sake. There are plenty of reasons he could chose to not participate, other than protecting his image.

Actually, the first person I'd imagine would say no to this on grounds of integrity is Neil Young. Who knows though. With Bob and the Stones closing, we might get another Live Aid.

I notice The Cheeky Girls and Vanilla Ice haven't agreed to play at this concert, so you never know which stars will actually display artistic integrity.

Bob , Keith , and Ron Wood on acoustic guitars doing 'when the ship comes in ' ....would be interesting.

Pity they didn't ask Leonard Cohen too

Is a high-profile gig by definition one lacking in integrity? I agree that it's kind of a lame and manufactured "event"...but that isn't the same thing. A gig is a gig, musicians play and people listen. It's what happens on stage that does or does not lend artistic integrity to proceedings. At least that's the angle I come at it from.

Dylan may possibly even do this not for the money, though I doubt he's going to turn millions down, but rather because he'd quite like to play at a massive show with Neil Young, Paul McCartney, and the Rolling Stones. It's not as if he's using a Blonde On Blonde track to advertise dairy products.

Hes already played with the Stones in a Stadium setting.
Its just another show, only for more money. More money is a good thing.

Here's hoping he feels the integrity to do it.
