This petition is to ask the organisers of Memphis in May\'s Beale St Music Festival to change their schedule for Saturday May 6th. At present, fans of Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley and Little Richard have to choose between seeing Bo and Richard, or just Jerry Lee - or else walking away mid-set. There are plenty of other acts which would not appeal much to these early rock fans, and a little rescheduling would fix matters. The three artists are a few of the last remaining originators of Rock\'n\'Roll music. This could be an historic occasion, and fans are travelling from Europe and all over America to see them. Please change your schedule!

Paul Leadbitter, United Kingdom9 years ago Comments: With the greatest respect, it does seem very unfortunate not to allow fans of original Rock 'n' Roll to see all three of these legends at the Memphis festival, Especially as some have already made international travel arrangements on the assumption that they would be able to see all 3.
Gerald Johnson, United States9 years ago Comments: These are the among the originators of rock n roll and should NEVER be in opposing times slots. Ridiculous!!!!
