Huge news for Kinks fans!


This just came across one of my Kinks newsletters, and I couldn't be more thrilled.

The Kinks have always had a greater, more faithful following in the USA than in the UK, so what better event to stage their long-awaited reunion than the Super Bowl!

"The Miami Sports Zone has reported that the 60's British Rock band, The Kinks will reunite for Super Bowl XLIV on February 7, 2010, in Miami Florida. The Kinks will perform 5 songs during a 20 minute halftime set under the lights at Dolphin Stadium. Just as Bruce Springsteen the year before, The Kinks are expected to perform some of their own hits such as Lola, You Really Got Me and Tired of Waiting. This will be the first live performance of the group since both Ray and Dave Davies set out on their own solo careers over a decade ago. Ray and Dave Davies are both avid soccer fans, but understand the ritual of Super Bowl Sunday. Come Dancing with The Kinks, Super Bowl Sunday, 2010."

I think this is an April Fool's joke directed at Kinks fans. Hardy Har Har!!

LOL! April Fool's! I actually managed to pull this over on a few of my Facebook friends...

It was part of a colletion of April Fool's jokes in a Kinks newsletter I get, and it was my favorite.

As my grandpa always said, "you've gotta have a little fun."

And Barbara, did I really pull it over on you? That would be quite the coup...I'm not sure though.

guru, I'm not so sure. Your comment was ambiguous. I think you picked up on it.
