Would be wonderful to attend. Wish they would broadcast it.

It should be a no-brainer to broadcast it and ask for donations on the skreen.

Surprised THAT many acts are playing though. What on earth will the set times look like?

Mike VDH 09-06-2017 08:39 AM

I'm surprised at the number of "A-list" acts on the bill. I can't see DMB playing a full 8:30-11pm set if doors only open at 3:30.

Love that they are doing this though.

Yeah I'd guess DMB is 90 minutes max, probably closer to 60.

TDunk 09-06-2017 09:39 AM

very strange dispersion of names...any chance some of these acts are doubled up? Timberlake and Stapleton seem like they could go together...Pharrell on his own doesn't make a ton of sense and especially in the 2 slot...maybe the Roots play a few of their own and then back up Grande and/or Pharrell?

Hopefully a simple stage without much work needed to change over between acts.

I wouldn't go but would love to stream this.

no way DMB gets more than 75 min if these are all separate acts that require 15 min between sets.

roshea999 09-06-2017 09:49 AM

I'd pay for a stream - would love to watch. We'll see.

I like that they are doing this, but still wish they stuck to their word of No shows during the break. Oh well. Makes sense now why they didn't have to announce it that far in advance because they're giving tickets away for free and look at all those names on the bill.

The show might be awful though. They haven't played together in over a year and it's probably going to be a short set.

CRUSHsoccer15 09-06-2017 09:58 AM

Good stuff.

I think they'll bring it. It'll be short, they'll stick to hits/easy ones and maybe throw in one treat. But I think they'll practice for this and surprisingly deliver a strong punchy set.

I wonder if requesting two tickets vs one ticket will effect chances...

That's not the lineup I would have guessed. Pretty cool that they drew that diverse a group of acts.

:lol

Aside from raising a shit ton of money for C'ville, the best I could hope for at this point is a Chris Stapleton guest spot on a few DMB tunes and/or some spots from The Roots as well.

mario 09-06-2017 11:50 AM

Brittany Howard playing a set could be amazing.

NiCK Crush 09-06-2017 12:00 PM

I don't know much about throwing benefit concerts, but why not just charge for tickets and then donate all of that money?

Im assuming they want some local people to attend and not to pay for their own benefit show.

Ah, that's gotta be it.

Tambourine Man 09-06-2017 01:47 PM

I bet they'll do something special...maybe use guests. They'll have to rehearse so why not rehearse something interesting

Or they'll just
:
Don't drink
Crush
SMTS
ASTB
Too Much
Grey Street

And done
