Now that Pitchfork 2009 has happened, music goers are looking forward to the next big one: Lollpalooza. Much excitement was was generated from the fact that Beastie Boys were scheduled to perform as co-headliners. However, as we unfortunately reported yesterday, all Beastie Boys dates are canceled so Yauch can get his  rest. Work on the album has been postponed and these canceled dates include major festivals.

However, no worries, music goers. According to Time-Out Chicago,  Lollapalooza was quick to replace their slot with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs who are no strangers to large festivals. Just check out our pictures from Coachella and see how great they were at that one!

What do you think of this? Are the Yeah Yeah Yeahs perfect as a replacement? Do you wish they picked another band instead? Let us know and check out some their music videos below!

“Heads Will Roll”
