Devil's Tower in Wyoming rejects Daft Punk concert proposal

This would've been a concert for the ages. The area around Devil's Tower in northeast Wyoming is outstanding and would have lead to one of the most memorable concerts in a long time.

Devil's Tower says no to Daft Punk

quote:

It was a plan that would have placed lasers at the base of the nation's first national monument, attracted as many as 50,000 people, and starred one of the biggest names in music.


quote:

Reed Robinson, superintendent for Devils Tower National Monument, said an agency representing the group, ICM Partners, approached the park in the fall and the park officially denied the request on Jan. 31.

Robinson said the park consulted with six American Indian tribes about the proposal, all of which generally agreed that it would be a disrespectful use of one of the country's most sacred American Indian sites.

"No event is going to be occurring in Devils Tower," Robinson said. "Anything that was proposed is a non-starter, is considered an adverse action according to the National Historic Preservation Act, and goes against the Park Service management approach."

Damn that would be awesome

CSB: I got stung by a rare hornet at Devil's Tower and had a gnarly allergic reaction years ago. Very miserable experience.

it's a national park, and the Sioux consider it sacred. Daft Punk can find someplace else to play.

Around 6 tribes consider it sacred...Pretty much the whole north-central/north-east corner of Wyoming, extending in to the Black Hills in South Dakota is sacred Indian land.

Devil's Tower, the Bighorn Mountains, and the Black Hills are the holiest grounds for tribes like the Sioux, Cheyenne, Crow, etc...

It's only a national monument...the first one at that, too
