He consulted to his friend who is a promoter of the band and end up having an idea that they had to throw a farewell concert. Lollapalooza was the name they picked out to name this concert. It turned out that the concert was so popular that they have to throw it every year. As for now, Lollapalooza not only happen in the US, but also extended to the south America.
