    Greece’s Central Archaeological Council (KAS) has given its approval for an invitation-only concert to take place at the ancient Irodion Theater, at the foot of the Acropolis, by US hard rock band the Foo Fighters on July 10. According to reports, no tickets will be sold. The Athens municipality and the tourism ministry will decide who will attend the concert as it is only by special invite. The KAS also gave organizers the green light to film the event, extracts of which will feature in PBS weekly travel and music series “Landmarks Live in Concert” while the Foo Fighters will go live from the Irodion on July 10 via live streaming. The KAS majority decision has come up against criticism, but organizers are stressing the promotional benefits which include sending images of Athens to more than 200 million viewers worldwide.Earlier this year, the KAS had rejected a request by Gucci to host and film a fashion show at the Acropolis.

    Oh how I wish I could see them live there?.. :flushed:

    I don't think a Foo Fighter show is affected by the location. It's still gonna be a best of jukebox with party poprock songs.

    Would love seeing Pearl Jam there though.

    From Dave:

    DEAR EVERYBODY –

    REMEMBER THAT “BREAK” WE WERE TAKING?

    WELL…. WE LIED.

    WE JUST SPENT THE LAST 6 MONTHS SECRETLY MAKING A GIGANTIC NEW FOO FIGHTERS ALBUM WITH OUR FRIEND/GENIUS/MASTERMIND GREG KURSTIN THAT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY FRY STEREOS FROM HERE TO FUKUOKA. START SAVING YOUR SPEAKER MONEY NOW. SORRY. IT’S BIG.

    IT’S CALLED CONCRETE AND GOLD, COMES OUT SEPT. 15TH, AND HAS MORE TWISTS AND TURNS THAN A LIVE SENATE HEARING. LIKE A BOX OF REALLY LOUD CHOCOLATES. HOPE YOU’RE HUNGRY.

    Alright, alright, alright!
    Tom O.

    So with the group presale, will you get a confirmation that you were moved to group one for buying the CD/Vinyl? Because I didn't receive anything saying I am now in group 1, although I should be

    Strange. I guess I will message them. 

    Edit - Still no email. But I went to check the Strobe site and it does list me on Group 1. So I guess it all worked
