    Dave talked about Twitter, Justin Bieber (he compared Beiber's acoustic Grammy performance to the acoustic version of Everlong!), and, what rumor we should all start about the next secret show (even though there aren't any more!).

    Yeah tour dates on here doesn't seem to include the two MK dates at the moment.

    They are 2nd and 3rd July at Milton Keynes Bowl

    When I saw Brixton listed I thought I'd missed a London show being announced :shock: ... it's the NME Awards Show ... phew!
    So are we strangers now? Like rock and roll and the radio?

    I haven't been through the whole process but there seem to be tickets here:

    http://www.seetickets.com/Event/SHOCKWA ... ton/535992

    I would think they would only be playing one song though ... two at the most.

    I'm lucky in that I've seen them play a couple of tiny places in London (Camden Underworld, Dingwalls) ... also seen they play HUGE places too (Hyde Park, Wembley Stadium). Any Foo's show is a good Foo's show :mrgreen:

    That White Limo tune is going to absolutely destroy Grohl's voice.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Band of horses are pretty awesome too.
    I am just a dreamer (from Buenos Aires, Argentina), but you are just a dream...
    If I knew where it was I would take you there (but I'm really bad with directions)
