Perry Farrell Upset About Lollapalooza Lineup Leak (A Top Story)


.
On Wednesday Perry Farrell Upset About Lollapalooza Lineup Leak was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) With this week's official announcement of this year's Lollapalooza lineup, the festival's founder Perry Farrell called in to Chicago radio station WXRT from Lollapalooza Brazil to discuss the lineup, as well as frustrations with it being leaked a week early. Weeks and months before that, 2013′s lineup rumors were disseminated online via leakers on Twitter and fake posters, as they have in the past.

"It's a pain in the butt," Farrell said of Lolla lineup leaks. "It's like you want to ask someone to marry you, and your friend jumps in and says, 'Hey, he's going to ask you to marry him.' You don't want to hear it from that person," adding, "It's been a thorn in our side."

Farrell was far more effusive when talking about this year's headliners, including New Order and the Cure. "Yeah, everyone is super excited for The Cure; they are like a fine wine, their songs have grown graceful and better with age," he said. "If you would have told me in the early '90s that New Order and The Cure would both be playing, I would freak out."

The Jane's Addiction frontman was equally excited about Mumford & Sons, who exceeded expectations with their latest album, Babel, both in terms of sales and walking away with this year's Grammy for Album of the Year.

"We have a knack of finding them early, but also catching them in their stride. We afford groups a victory lap. We did it with Gaga," Farrell explained in reference to Lady Gaga's 2007 performance on a Lollapalooza side-stage before returning as a headliner in 2010. "We'd obviously been tracking the Mumford & Sons record. These days, it's tough to sell records. They came out of the box with Babel and it was quite extraordinary. A million-seller today is the equivalent of 7 million in the past. - more on this story
