Bonnaroo – Lost Opportunity for Top Acts

I find it rather odd that the top two bands on Bonnaroo bill, The Police and Tool, aren’t being broadcast in the AT&T Blue Room this year. The Police tour is sold out and Tool regularly sells out it’s tours as well, so there is nothing but upside and positive public relations opportunities being lost here. Not surprisingly these acts are on older traditional labels, though I do not know what the drivers of the non-participation on Bonnaroo webcasts are.

Here are the bands that are being webcast.
