Iceland’s Eyjafallajokul volcano, which erupted for the first time in 190 years, kept some artists from flying to Coachella but didn’t slow the festival down much. Despite the occasional bare stage and some shifted sets (French singer Yann Tiersen grabbed Gary Numan’s earlier slot), the Empire Polo grounds pumped for one last day on Sunday.

The band is currently on tour through mid-August.  Read entire story
