    I'll probably hit up Vancouver but am slightly tempted to go to Seattle instead.  I'd probably go to Seattle if I didn't think PJ was going to play there in 2018.  It's nice to have options.   It also seems like a first where both shows are on Saturday nights...

    Now I can get more use out of the tent I bought for camping at Cal Jam '17!! Guess this also nixes any possibility of headlining dates at the Forum for the next year.

    Yep.....I doubt they will do a headlining show in L.A.     We are going up to Sacramento to see them on December 2.

    Anyone have the Medium Rare release from 2011 on vinyl? How is it?

    I do and it's great! Nice to have a bunch of B-Sides on one album.
  • So, a little help is requested here. I was at a show last weekend and while I appreciated the $25 shirts, I thought the vinyl was overpriced at that same amount. It wasn't until after the show that I realized that the new album with the "black on black" design was limited.

    I will buy someone a beer if they can pick one up for me. So $35 maybe? $25 for the album + media mail + a beer = $35? Appreciate if anyone could help out. Thanks!

    they should have brought out the throne and have Dave and Axl fight over who gets to sit in it.

    Im going to see Foo and GnR next summer, so that makes two overrated bands then. Where do you stand on Metallica live, because I'm thinking of seeing them too (never seen them live)?

    Foo Fighters are arguably the biggest rock band in our era.

    I know it's trendy to knock popular, but in their particular case... I think they are popular for a reason. Just acknowledge their awesomeness and jump aboard!

    * I would say Grohl's banter can be repetitive and somewhat scripted. This is the only aspect of the band I'm not super cool with. Oh... their last album wasn't so great either, but much better than a few other 'new releases' our favourite 'experienced' bands have spewed out. The only other 'experienced' band that has topped them in recent album quality has been the RHCP with their last effort.

    So, like, that's my opinion.

    I think they are quite "shallow" and it affects their greatest hits shows for me and Grohls banter reminds me of Paul Stanleys. 

    But I can see why others gets hyped by their live shows. 

    And I loved seeing them and Audioslave back to back at Roskilde in 2005.

    They are definitely not Pink Floyd, but I don't want all bands to be Pink Floyd.

    I think their catalogue is much deeper than many want to give credit for.

    it's just unfortunate they don't delve into that catalogue live.

    I'd give you this. But saying that... there are a few Foos hits I'd want to hear every show.

    If you want the poster from the cancelled Lexington show, it is up in their shop now. The best part is the proceeds go to a local charity.
