Prince at ACL 2008 Rumor

Guanabee (via Austin Soundcheck) is starting a rumor that Prince might be playing ACL this year based on his recent addition to the Coachella lineup and that they claim to hear Prince in the Car Stereo (Wars) teaser mashup of ACL artists that was released earlier this week. I can hear Gnarls Barkley, Silversun Pickups and Raconteurs in there among others, but nothing jumps out at me as a Prince track. Just because The Purple One is playing one major festival this summer doesn’t mean he’s playing others.

However, I’ll add that Prince has had locals Groupo Fantasma as his backing band on more than one occasion and he did play a private party at The Belmont last year, so he’s got Austin ties these days. Maybe it’s not so far fetched. We only have to wait 5 more days to find out for sure.
