well well well… the guys that have been pushing the Shanghai Summer Sonic came out yesterday in Beijing with a press conference, complete with drama and ceremonial unveiling of the first names that will grace Shanghai’s version of Summer Sonic, now called Sonic Shanghai:
Limp Bizkit, Jamiroquai, a reunited and new Black Panther are amongst the headliners with promises of more names coming up soon.
A little birdie, whose identity shall remain secret, has also confirmed that one of the bands they previously included in the lineup has signed on to play Shanghai but didn’t specify the occasion.. either ways, it looks to be Amazing, if you’re not Jaded by stories of big names coming around and random tales of love in an elevator.
No matter who ends up coming, i’m still a bit weirded out that Shanghai can pull this off whereas Beijing has to contend wit pop starlets.
Sonic Shanghai goes down from August 17-18 at Shanghai Grand Stage and Shanghai Stadium.
