Anyone else?

I guess I'm giving away my age with this post but I can't help wondering if there are any other Insiders attending the Desert Trip concert in Indio, CA. I'm using my week of timeshare at the Desert Springs Villas II to attend what many baby boomers are referring to as the second coming of Woodstock (yes, I went to the original Woodstock back in the 60's). I am attending Desert Trip during weekend 2 of the concerts October 14, 15 and 16.

 

The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Who, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Roger Daltry are playing over the three nights of the concert. As some of my Insider friends know, I am an old music buff and couldn't pass up this opportunity to see what may be the last chance (because of the performers ages...not mine) to see Rock and Roll Royalty!

 

If anyone else is attending let me know!

Happy Travels all!

    Wow, that lineup is incredible. So many legends! I actually heard about this earlier in the year, but thought the person telling me about it was pulling my leg. It sounded too good to be true! Have an amazing time, can't wait to hear all about it!

      pluto77 you'd both have a great time! I just read they re-configured the stage arrangements and it opened up some 300 extra seats for you!!

    I'm working on it tef6178...it's a long shot, but I have a friend, from Dallas, and he and his wife are heading there soon. They have extra tickets for weekend 2 and I'm trying to make it work.

     

    I didn't even know about it until you let me know in Houston.....

    Who are all those people? Never heard of any of em.

     

     

    (Note: I know who they are, I just felt like playing the role of ignorant millennial )

     

     

    A little jealous. Sounds like a wonderful time, with some fantastic talent. Great use of your timeshare week too.

      Ha! The music by most of them is timeless! Not like that whatever it is that gets played today ! The timeshare deal is a BARGAIN with this trip since the hotels all doubled and tripled their rates when they found out this concert was coming!

      Thanks gm1 we were glad we could use it to do this with the rates being what they are. The best art is that the JW and the timeshare property have a dedicated shuttle bus to and from the concert!

    What a fantastic lineup. It is amazing that these performers and many others of the era are still touring and sounding great. One of my favorites, Kansas, will be in Cincinnati on 10/30 celebrating the 40th anniversary of Leftoverture. Although Steve Walsh retired, the current lineup sounds just like they did during Walsh's prime years. Unfortunately, I will miss this concert because I will be in Marco Island.

     

    Enjoy the concert. We look forward to your review.

    What a great lineup!!  This is the first I am hearing of this festival and would have loved to hear about it sooner. tef6178, sounds like you will have an amazing time, do keep us updated. Also, totally have to agree with Jsucool76 here, fantastic use of a time share.

        It's a great line up and a great place to go for an event of this nature. I tried to get tickets, unsuccessfully, unfortunately, when they first came out. I'm sure there will be some available through various methods, but I'm not local to the event and prefer to have a sure thing before heading out.

         

        Enjoy.  Hope the crowds are better to the local surroundings than the Coachella people!

          Sorry insertcoffee that you couldn't get the tix to go. We're going for the gusto as we have the unlimited food and drink package in the air conditioned suites to complement our seats for the concert each night!

           

          The concert is being referred to as 'Oldchella' because of the older aged folks (including me) who they expect to be the biggest group in attendance! I know I'll be spending a lot of bucks outside the concert venue in the local establishments while there! I love the area!

    I was doing a rare event (work) when this flashed across the board, so it went under my radar.

     

    tef6178 for those who don't know, was a teenage rock star (paid for college tuition with his gig money). Not wanting to end up like Keith Moon, he studied business and went into management and as you can see, was successful enough to buy the Primo package as well as enjoy his Marriott Timeshare (but don't get him started on maintenance fees ).

     

    He'll probably be called up on stage, but unlike the college kid that played with the Boss

    091116_SpringsteenAucoin

    Mick and the boys (older than tef) won't be able to get him out of his fancy digs

     

     

    (look closely, there's one of the Desert Trip performers on the wall - lil' Bobby Zimmerman from Minn a soda, who just today was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature).

     

    Well played, tef, well played,

      erc what a great memory remembering my kid aged rock exploits and a sense of humor to boot! Been traveling ever since it ended (to Boston and back) but what a great show it was!! Packed every night the food was fantastic and best of all the transportation and performances went off without a single hitch! Extremely well organized! The Who and Neil Young talked about the 85,000 in attendance. Don't know if their numbers were right or wrong but the place was packed! Dylan must have been thinking about his newly minted Nobel Peace prize because he never said one word to the audience....but, that's true Dylan!

       

      The Rolling Stones were great! I remember seeing them about 10 years ago and thought they were a bunch of noise but wow did they sound good this time and put on a great performance! Even Mick Jagger learned how to play the guitar! He never played anything in the old days. Amazing how the music family stays together....Neil Young's backup band included Willie Nelson's kids and The Who's drummer is Ringo Starr's boy!

       

      But, my best and most liked performer of the three days of music was Paul McCartney.


      McCartney played two and a half hours and rocked the place! It was a fantastic weekend!

       

      I tried posting pics but they all posted upside down! Sorry....
