Well this must have put a DAMPER on things!

No pun intended!

Okay, yes it was! Ha!

The Lollapalooza Festival was forced to be halted over the weekend after a thunderstorm forced the event organizers to evacuate the concert-goers to parking garages for THREE HOURS until the rain had cleared…all the while Red Hot Chili Peppers were supposed to perform!

Luckily, the band was allowed to play their set when an extended curfew passed, but The Temper Tramps and Alabama Shakes were forced to cancel entirely!

Wow. These went FAST!

The 11th Austin City Limits Music Festival has sold out - less than a DAY before the tickets went on sale to the public, which was this morning at 10am!

And even by then, single-day tickets for the Friday and Saturday dates, October 12th and 13th, were already snagged up!

Don't feel too bad though! Early Bird passes were sold last September fresh on the heels of the 2011 dates, and members of the e-list bought all the three-day passes yesterday in a special 24-hour pre-sale.

But FYI - if you want to dish out some serious money, there are STILL a limited number of VIP Passes, Platinum Passes and Travel Packages!

But honestly, with the line-up they secured this year - which features Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine - we can't say we're too surprised!

Zilker Park is going to be BAD-ASS come this October!
