Could Aerosmith Replace Beyonce at Coachella?

February 28, 2017

Could Aerosmith replace Beyoncé at Coachella this year? How about Paul McCartney? If you think you know the answer to that question, it may be time to call Vegas to put your money where your mouth is.  

A popular sports betting website has put together some odds on who Beyoncé’s replacement will be at Coachella. Yes, this is a real thing.* Then again, let’s not forget that propositional bets existed on what hair color Super Bowl halftime performer Lady Gaga would have this year. So this may not be as far-fetched as we’d imagine.

By the way, in case you were living under a rock: Beyoncé is pregnant with twins, and her doctors have ordered that she cancel her Coachella performance this April.

These odds are based on a number of factors including travel/tour logistics, the artist’s price tag, and the likelihood that they’d want to perform at Coachella at all, according to the betting website.

So it is important to keep in mind that logistics play a role. The site has broken down where each performer will be in the days before and after Coachella—that’s why some of these stand out a little more than others.

Here’s a list of some of the odds.

Aerosmith: +4500
Daft Punk: +6500
Depeche Mode: +750
Elton John: +2750
