Boomers' concert of a lifetime kicks off in Calif. desert

October 07, 2016 - 11:06 AM

INDIO, Calif. - For thousands of middle-aged rockers, the concert of a lifetime is here.

The Desert Trip music festival starts Friday in Indio, California, featuring six legendary acts over three days: the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and the Who. It will be the first time ever they've all performed at the same event.

The concert is being staged at the same Southern California desert venue where the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is held each spring.

But unlike Coachella, Desert Trip is targeting the more affluent baby boomers who grew up with the festival's featured rockers. Luxury camping, gourmet dining and yoga classes are among the amenities being offered. The festival repeats next weekend.

Dylan is set to kick things off Friday, just after sunset.
