Rock News: Aerosmith playing Woodstock '99 No More No More
In a shocking announcement rock veterans Aerosmith announced they would
not be playing at Woodstock this year.
Aerosmith was in with only a handful of artist who played at the 1994
Woodstock festival slated to return this year. But plans change. The official
line from Aerosmith on why they will not appear is "mutual production problems
and scheduling conflicts."
MTV online reports that the change may have something to do with the
bands new management. Aerosmith changed management companies earlier in
the year. Perhaps it is the tight schedule the band is on that caused
them to opt out of the three day music festival in up state New York.
They are currently touring Europe with the tour closer scheduled for
July 17th in Lisbon. Since the the Woodstock festival is only 6 days later,
perhaps the band feared it would not be enough time to make the trek back
to the states, rest, and prepare for Woodstock.
There was no word on the bands official site, but their Official
Fan Club had this to say.
"AEROSMITH UPDATE: Because of mutual production problems and scheduling
conflicts, AEROSMITH will be unable to perform at the Woodstock '99 Festival.
The band - STEVEN TYLER, JOE PERRY, BRAD WHITFORD, TOM HAMILTON and JOEY
KRAMER - regret this inconvenience and send out a heartfelt apology to
fans who had purchased tickets to see them perform as part of the weekend

Woodstock organizers are set to announce some additions to the festival
this week. As always as soon as we know, we will pass the info on to you.
