News of the Day: Bonnaroo 2009 Headliners

Rolling Stone Magazine is reporting that the rumors that have been circulating for the past few months are in fact...fact

Phish will be headlining on both Friday and Saturday nights, while Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (the band playing this year's SuperBowl, maybe you've heard of 'em!) will close out the festival on Sunday.

The festival is sure to please a lot of Phish-heads, hippies and old school Bonnaroo fans, by signing to biggest jamband next to the Grateful Dead, for a festival once dominated by jambands.

Phish broke up in 2004, after a near twenty-year career rise to fame, by succeeding in a very similar way to that of the Grateful Dead.

The members of Phish have stayed busy since the breakup, many of them playing with their own bands at previous Bonnaroo festivals.

So, for all you Phish-heads who said "Phish wouldn't play Bonnaroo, they could have their own festival" and "they've never been that kind of band, they've never done that sort of thing" - well, Bonnaroo got Phish. And not just one show...two. This may be the best Bonnaroo yet.
