Kanye Is Lollapalooza's Problem Now

The schedule for Lollapalooza has been released and our friend Kanye West is headlining the AT&T stage on Day 3, Sunday August 3rd. He is scheduled to begin at 8:30 PM following Gnarls Barkley's set, which runs from 6:15 - 7:15. So that gives his crew 75 minutes to setup his elaborate Glow In The Dark production. That is 30 minutes LESS setup time than he was given at Bonnaroo even with Pearl Jam's extended set. Pearl Jam ended around 1 AM and Kanye was supposed to go on 105 minutes later. He actually went on around 210 minutes after Pearl Jam's set ended. I'm no mathematician, but I'm pretty sure this isn't goint to work out so well for the Chicago festival. If you're headed there, I would highly recommend making your way over to Nine Inch Nails set at 8:15. Something tells me that you'll still be able to catch the beginning of Mr. West's set after NIN is done at 10 PM. On second thought, after you're rocked by Trent Reznor, just go home happy.
