Eminem, Muse, Foo Fighters Rumored To Headline Lollapalooza

This year’s Lollapalooza festival could have some heavy headliners, including Eminem, Muse, and Foo Fighters.  At least that’s what the Chicago Tribune wants us to believe.

According to Greg Kot, who writes the “Turn It Up” blog for the Chicago Tribune, reliable industry sources are confirming that Slim Shady will make a trip to Grant Park in Chicago August 5-7.  It seems possible as Eminem had the number one selling album in 2010 with Recovery and is a heavy favorite to win “Album of the Year” at next Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

The Foo Fighters are releasing their as yet untitled album April 12, which Dave Grohl said will be massive.  The band is already scheduled for a few other festivals so it would make sense for them to be part of Lollapalooza.  Muse reached the next level of success in the U.S. with their 2009 album The Resistance and embarked on an arena tour in support of the record.

Other acts that are supposedly confirmed are Best Coast, Girl Talk, Crystal Castles and Lykke Li.  The complete lineup is expected to be announced in April.

What do you think?  Would Eminem, Muse, and Foo Fighters alone be enough for you to drop over $200 a ticket for the weekend?  Let us know below.
