With the re-elect in the rear view mirror, a source inside the Obama Administration is singing like a canary. We’re happy to play Woodward and Bernstein to their Nixon and bring you the as-yet-unannounced scoop: Bonnaroo‘s 2013 headliners will include Tom Petty and a re-united Wu-Tang Clan. Also on the bill, and fresh off of their spot supporting Jack White and playing Virgin Free Fest, ZZ Top. No word on whether or not hologram-ish technologies will be employed for Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Or, for that matter, Tom Petty’s late guitarist, Howie Epstein.
(We’re talking seven months from now, of course, so if you can’t wait that long for your festival fix y’all can always hop a plane to Fort Lauderdale later this month and get your dolla dolla billz out for the S.S. Coachella).
But we’re just a lil’ ol’ blog, so perhaps you doubt our reportorial abilities? Fair enough, but then again, we also had the scoop on the 2012 headliners. Just don’t ask us who Deep Throat is…and no, despite what you may have heard, it still isn’t Diane Sawyer.
