Paul McCartney to Headline 2009 Coachella

Paul McCartney is making the rounds these days, what with promoting his latest album Electric Arguments — most hilariously on The Colbert Report, the uncomfortable video of which you can check out after the jump — and now there's news that he'll topline the the tenth Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival this April. The question becomes, however, is Coachella a good fit for this former Beatle?

LA Times blogger Geoff Boucher wonders "What remains to be seen is whether the choice will cost the festival credibility with its core clientele: young fans who are more likely to listen to the White Stripes than the White Album and who are far more familiar with Rage Against the Machine than Band on the Run."

Some of the other acts of note on this year's lineup include Morrissey, The Cure, Franz Ferdinand, Leonard Cohen, M. Ward, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine and Jenny Lewis. To see the full list of acts performing at this year's festival, click here.

What do you think? Are you planning on going to Coachella this year? Would you be psyched to see Paul McCartney play live at that festival?

And to check out the very funny — and awkward — clip from McCartney's appearance on The Colbert Report,
