ThurstonGore has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
Heard rumors today from a buddy who is a music journalist that SY may be on the Lolapallooza tour as a final hurrah? Anyone here heard those rumors? Or any updates about the future at this point?
Here was his message via twitter:

@guerrilacandy: Anybody else hear this rumor about Lollapalooza: Metallica, Beck, RHCP, Beyonce, The Killers and Sonic Youth's farewell show?

Honestly man, and I could be wrong, but I'd be willing to bet that you will get another opportunity to see the Youth whether it be at Lolla or not. I don't see them becoming super active again (I've already stated my feelings this)...but I'd be surprised if there aren't more shows at some point. Too much money involved.

They should come back in about 8 years. People will be thirsty again for their music. Yeah. Sonic Thirsty.

My first SY show was SUPPOSED to be at Lolla...I dunno if I want to try and
make it my last one. The Williamsburg show was breathtaking. I kinda want
THAT to be my last SY live memory. Not a festival gig.

I say that now. When it's official (if it's official), I'll probably change my tune.
I'd be an idiot to have the chance and pass it up.

Farewell Youth Tour 2012. Maybe Kim could bust out those Marilyn leggings of hers.

OK, i dunno maybe this is just me but i have to say that i don't have as much interest in seeing SY with what has happened with the band... i heard, read and saw the videos from the last tour in S. America and they just didn't seem to be "themselves". I just don't see how thats going to change for the better, glad to have seen them a handful of times in my life. I would probably feel much different if I never seen them live before.

I keep (kept?) hoping that the split would be amicable enough to keep the band together, save a small hiatus, but that hope is fading I must say. I was hoping it'd be like the parents who get divorced, but keep everything civil and active for the kids, kind of thing. Time will tell...

If this is true I will go for sure. I haven't been to anything "lolla" in a while (a long while), but for them I'd go.

I'm ever so slightly peeved by the fact that I can barely remember seeing them tour behind Eternal due to black-out-drunkenness, which is a situation I rarely find myself in. If I'd known it was (might be) the last time, I would have been either stone-sober or on something much funner

They should record one last actual album inside Dave Grohl's garage, sounds like that's the happenin place to be these days.

i don't know! ... it seems just like a loopy speculation. would sonic youth really have a farewell concert? i think if they did want to for whatever reason, it wouldn't be this year because it would distract from Lee's album which otherwise will be much better appreciated which is a positive side effect of the youth hiatus.
