Perry Farrell “Live Alternative” TV?
Had enough with the crooning amateurs covering tired songs from the seventies on contest-type musical TV shows? Maybe you LIKE to sit through the famous judges critiquing some poor soul’s performance of a lifetime. Not that it’s wrong.
Perry Farrell (have you heard of Lollapalooza?) is proposing a live music series to television networks, reports Entertainment Weekly. Instead of featuring singing competitions and celebrity judges, Farrell reportedly wants to create a showcase for established touring acts to come through and perform on TV for a large television audience.
No word on which network might be interested, if any, or what the show would be called, but one has to think that Farrell might be able to pull this off.
