More About Lollapalooza
Perry Farrell, eccentric leader of the 90's band Jane's Addiction, started Lollapalooza in 1991 as a way to mark the group's disbanding. It became hugely successful, and put bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Smashing Pumpkins in the spotlight. Notably, Nirvana was scheduled to perform the day before Kurt Cobain's body was found. Wife Courtney Love appeared instead, mourning the loss of her husband with hordes of grieving fans.
The festival, whose name Farrell used after hearing it on TV in "The Three Stooges" (although spelled a little differently) also highlights non-music acts. The Jim Rose Circus Side Show, in which performers do flinch-inducing acts like hanging weights from body piercing in delicate parts of the anatomy, was made famous after participating in the first Lollapalooza tour. Political and non-profit groups also set up at the festival, attracting large crowds to their booths and gaining instant attention to their causes, and art has been on display as well.
The festival has come and gone over the years, and has existed in varying forms. Lollapalooza is unusual in that it isn't a one-off show. It traveled to towns all across both Canada and the U.S., and eventually went on for a couple of days at a time. As popular music tastes changed, so did the festival.
After a few years off, Jane's Addiction re-formed, and Lollapalooza was reborn. Beginning in 2005, after a particularly successful showing, Lollapalooza joined with Capital Sports & Entertainment and Chicago's Park District in an agreement to hold the festival in the city's Grant Park through the year 2011. In 2008, seating to Lollapalooza concerts were in especially high demand, prompting yet another contract between the three entities.
The festival is now guaranteed to be held in Chicago through 2018 - a boon to the city, as well as alternative music fans. Lollapalooza takes place in the summer, with the 2008 dates already decided. In 2010, the shows will be from August sixth through the eighth.
