TakLiberty Fest

The RXP TakLiberty Fetival will take place on two stages on September 18 at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. The radio station (current home of Pinfield) festival features performances by Coldplay, Richard Ashcroft (The Verve), Two Door Cinema Club, The Kooks, Graffiti 6, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and more to be announced. Ticket pre-sale begins Tuesday (6/21) and general sale starts Friday (6/24) at noon.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart also have upcoming shows including August 8 and 9 at Terminal 5 with The Kills and A Place to Bury Strangers. Tickets for both shows are available. The Kooks play a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom on June 27th. Richard Ashcroft recently played Bowery Ballroom.

Coldplay play Austin City Limits two days before the NJ show. They're also on the lineup of Lollapalooza. All of their other dates are overseas at the moment.

Coldplay have a new single awesomely named "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall." According to Coldplay's YouTube account, the song contains compositional elements of "I Go To Rio" by Peter Allen, and was produced by Markus Dravs, Dan Green and Rik Simpson with additional composition by Brian Eno. Listen to the song below...

Actually that's a pretty cool lineup. Too bad PNC is arguably worse than Terminal 5 in terms of sound, expense, and general "ugh"ness.

I'll wait for the Coldplay NY date.

I went to PNC one time in my life. It was in 2008 for a Rush concert. My Jersey friends invited me and I will never ever set foot inside that horrid place ever again. Horrible sound and $9 beers. Not to mention getting out is a nightmare as everyone HAS to drive there.

On the contrary there is a very nice Vietnam War memorial next door.

^ Academy Bus runs directly to PNC every 10 minutes...Beers are expesnive but more along the lines of $6. Place is easy to get out of if you know where to park. I went to 2 shows so far this summer at PNC and although it is not ideal it is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

I think Academy is a commuter service though (PNC is a park-n-ride hub) and won't be running for the show, but I think they still have the concert shuttle from the Matawan NJ Transit rail station.

^ it runs during show days...had someone from NYC meet me at a show and they took Academy down from Manhattan took 50 minutes..sure it is intended for the commuting crowd but it drops off about a 10 minute walk away and runs every 10 minutes on weekdays not sure about weekends though?

Cool idea and I always give RXP an A for effort to bring this kind of stuff back to the tri-state area. That being said, why not use Governor's Island or Randalls Island for something like this?
