    Talk about a difference, went down to the arena about 1
    And there's only about 8 people lined up.

    Just got back from the Vancouver show.  It was pretty damn good.  So much less hassle than PJ shows.  No lines to get in.  Short lines and no problems to get a t-shirt and poster.   Good times :)
  • I was there!

    Classic Foos show. Very Loud. Enjoyed it immensely.

    I'm not sure it was because it was an Arena show, and I'm coming off stadium shows, or if PJ fan's are a lot more die hard than Foo Fighters fans.  Last night was so easy.   Way too easy for a concert.   Wanted a poster.  We showed up at 6:30.  No lineup to get in the venue.   Only about 10 people (including their guests) in the merch lineup by the entrance we used.    It was an arena so we got really good side stage tickets (row 12).  We actually had spare time between buying a poster and the band playing.   There weren't beer lineups (so many different places to buy beer).  We found this one area with some tables, a closed bar, and an open bar, and had a few before the show.    Foo Fighters posted on facebook at that opener is at 7 and Foo Fighters at 8:15.   Opener started at 7 and FF at 8:18. 

    It fest so easy.   PJ shows are full of lineups.  Lineups if you want to buy something,  lineups to get in, lineups for GA.   This show felt like a vacation :)

    Then the FF proceeded to rock the shit out of the arena for over 2.5 hours.   I especially enjoyed the Under Pressure cover.  That girl could sing.  It was funny watching them quiet her mic, but then turn it up once they noticed she could sing, and then Taylor let her sing some full fledge lines.     The cover of Jump set to Imagine was pretty funny. 

    Helluva good night :)   I think it's pretty crazy, that arena shows feel smaller and less crazy to me.    I can see why there's people posting comments about wanting PJ to go back to doing arena shows.

    Enjoyed the Foos at Fenway this year, but it's definitely a different vibe than any PJ show. We got down to do our Merch at their PopUp shop at Fenway Johnnies. There were probably 20 people in line and the shop had been open for 2 hours. We got a limited edition foil poster that was still available as well as an uncut version of their two night poster. The show was the same -- not much lining up and not much in the way of fervor the way PJ was. 

    When we saw PJ in Tampa in 2016, it was also more laid back -- the floor seemed like it took forever to fill in and we had no trouble getting our posters and merch at a stand inside the arena and there was no line.

    Picked up the San Jose FF poster on the drop the other day -- it arrived this afternoon. It is gorgeous - F4D studios. Thinking a plain white frame for now.
     

    Hoping to score the Emek on his drop later this week. Our bedroom is painted eggplant and we're making galaxy fabric covered cornices for our windows:

    Scored both. Husband got the Nintendo on the drop for F4D studios. It arrived earlier this week and it looks awesome.  Going in our media area with our video games, DVDs, etc.
    I nabbed the Emek on the drop today. First time I've tried to score any poster on artist drop -- talk about Stress!  This one is going in the bedroom next to the PJ Madrid.

    Do they ever play ‘New Way Home’ live anymore? That’s their best track, I saw them play it at a small gig in Sydney when touring The Colour And The Shape album in about 97’...

    Im going to sound old, but fuck it, those were the days.

    Dave Grohl ‘Play’ arrived today. 
    Pretty cool die-cut gatefold sleeve, and the stage set up drawing is etched into side 2 of the vinyl

  • Seeing them for the first time in probably a decade this week. Do they mix up the setlists each show? Or are they generally the same? Looking forward to it, thanks!

    Generally the same.
    Great energy and glad I went, but they wouldn't be a multi-day ticket for me if they played more than once per tour in my city.

    Saw the show in Phoenix last night. I think the CalJam set really breathed some life into them and the show. Their setlist had basically been the same for the entire tour, but last night they played in reverse chronological order like they did at CalJam. It was awesome. Started with Run and worked their way back to This is A Call to end the main set, then finished with Best of You and Everlong. I was kinda iffy on going since it had basically been a greatest hits set and I've seen them 5x before, but I'm really glad that I did. Took a buddy with me who had never seen them and really only knew some of their biggest hits. He was blown away, can't stop talking about the show and how good they are.
