It's Only Rock'n Roll
Bilbao has airport, I believe most of the European cities have connections directly to the city. Now we have the brand new Guggenheim museum, so Bilbao is becoming more and more famous and easy to find in any travel agency. Try the museum web page through yahoo, it has info about how to go there. Driving from the French border is also possible. From Bayone in France to Bilbao is about 2-3 hours drive in a good highway, nice landscape.
There are not so many Hotelsavailable, and we have to think that most of them will be already booked by the tour guys. Anyway, close to Bilbao 5-10 miles they are more towns to find hotels. As I said, Bilbao is a very small city, you can walk everywhere easily. I will do my best to find out details of the Stones in the city, which hotel are they "sleeping" at and so on.
About Vigo, is a small city in the region of Galicia, very nice landscape and so. If you look in the map, take Lisbon, Portugal, and go up North close to the coast, youŽll find it. Has airport, about 3-4 miles from the city. Unfortunatelly, I never been there before, so I cant tell you details, but I can look around in turist offices whatsoever. I dont recomend driving from Madrid, could be easily more than 6/7 hours drive, not very confortable highway. They are buses available from Madrid
See the separate web pages about Bilbao information in general.
