While a majority of the acts will appear both days, Waits himself will perform only on Sunday, the 27, 2013.
Waits, who hasn’t toured since 2008, announced his addition to the lineup on Saturday night (September 21, 2013), saying in a statement : ”I had every good intention to stay home and work on my JD Salinger Halloween mask, but when Neil told me yesterday he was serving burnt cow’s eyes on a flat tire and it’s all gluten free, I invited myself!”
Waits’ added that he’ll perform a full acoustic set featuring songs from his latest album, Bad As Me, with his band (David Hidalgo guitar; Les Claypool bass; Casey Waits, drums; and more). source
