Lolla Adds Two Headliners: Tool & The Killers

Greg Kot at the Tribune is reporting that Lollapalooza has added two additional headliners to it's set list scheduled for August. To be honest neither got us too excited, but when you have 170+ bands it's impossible to like them all. Tool, which came to fame in the 90's, is a Grammy award winning band known for their "style-transcending act and part of progressive rock and art rock".

The Killers, in our opinion, are a tough band to figure out. Our experience with them is very hit or miss; One second we're singing along the next we're quickly looking the other way. Regardless, their unique style and showmanship should yield a interesting if not good live show. Here is one of their more "popular" songs, When You Were Young:

Did we mention this song was in Guitar Hero? Maybe that's why we like it...

The Decemberists are also rumored to participating in this years Lolla festivities.
