Many Musicians Play April Fools Jokes Yesterday

april-fools-day-movie-poster-200x150 There were a few April Fools' jokes played on fans yesterday. Backstreets, the Bruce Springsteen fanzine, annually does one, and this year was no exception -- there were six. They ranged from Springsteen doing a Los Angeles rehearsal show with Burt Bacharach joining him for "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" (where the tour opened last night) to Springsteen's son Evan taking his father's place during some of the European shows, like Jay Weinberg is taking the place of his father, E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg. The purported reason is so Bruce can attend classes at Princeton. The Elton John fan site, Elton Fan, has Elton doing a New Year's Eve show in the South Pacific on "the new landmass that was just recently created by the eruption on the tiny volcanic island of Hunga Ha'apai... As the eruption last month destroyed rich birdlife and vegetation, leaving a wasteland of black ash and tree stumps, the island will only be used to set up the gigantic stage. Seats for spectators will be available on floating islands along the shoreline. It is also reported that some of the big cruise ships, including the Queen Mary Two, plan to drop anchor at the time of the show, allowing their passengers to watch the concert from the comfort of their luxury cabins with balconies or from the deck of the ships." The Deep Purple fan site, Highway Star, has them playing New Year's Eve on the South Pole along with "training for a flight to space to perform on the moon. NASA and the European Space Agency are already busy at work on reducing the weight of the Hammond organ."
