    Default Farm Aid 20th Anniversary Show

    Word is the date and location will be announced Monday at noon in Grant Park in Chicago. It's expected to be held somewhere in Chicago in September. Too bad it won't be in Champaign again (closer to me). Was too young for the first one, but I've seen video of Ed and Sammy.

    So -- do you think the boys can get it together by then? Or is Sammy busy with the Wabos in that time frame (maybe they can perform?) and then there's always the question, "What about Dave?"
    Honey, I ain't through with you!

    GO ILLINI!!!!!!!

    I was under the impression, the powers that be wanted this thing to be held in Champaign for the 20th anniversary. As usual, something is probably holding up something great to be held at Memorial Stadium. I sure know Sammy remembers coming to town. He mentioned the farm aid appearance during the reunion tour here. That would be sweet, to have the boys here twice in a year. Farm Aid has lost a lot of steam over the years, but hopefully Willie Nelson aka uncle jesse, will once again reunite VH.

    Yeah, it looks like the Illini are at home three weekends during September. Only September 17th would be available for the stadium. Champaign-Urbana doesn't have any other place big enough for this, does it?

    The Chicago Trib's Tempo section has John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Dave Mathews headlining it. Can't wait for this!
