Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and ZZ Top Confirmed for Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup
Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and ZZ Top are among the avalanche of stars confirmed for the 2013 Bonnaroo lineup. The festival will take place June 13-16 in Manchester, Tenn.
McCartney, Petty and Mumford and Sons are the three headliners of the festival, which will also feature performances by Billy Idol, Gov’t Mule and former Talking Heads frontman David Bryne, who will be appearing alongside St. Vincent in support of their excellent 2012 album ‘Love This Giant.’
ZZ Top are touring in support of their most recent album, 2012′s ‘La Futura.’ It’s unlikely McCartney will focus too heavily on his newest album, the pop standards collection ‘Kisses on the Bottom,’ during his concert — expect a parade of Beatles, Wings and solo hits instead. And if you haven’t had the chance to hear Petty and the Heartbreakers tear through songs from 2010′s ‘Mojo’ in person, you’re in for a treat.
Also featured on this year’s Bonnaroo lineup are Bjork, Wilco, Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, the National, Divine Fits, Dwight Yoakam, Baroness, Janandroids and Death Grips, among many many others. You can get the full band lineup and information on ticket packages at the festival’s official website.
