    sigh... before Taylor passsed they were going to play in our 7000 seater arena.   Closest show to me is Safeco Field, in the summer on a workday.  Unfortunately i'm going to skip and hold out hope they play Vancouver again at some point.  Seattle is not a cheap to stay in during the summer :(
    I was thinking of hitting Minneapolis next July. But I think I'll hold out they come back to Winnipeg for the first time since 2000-fucking-8. But I guess it would have to be our outdoor stadium, which would mean 2025. 

    Maybe?  The last time they played Vancouver was in 2018, and they played the Arena, while Seattle which was right before (or was it right after) was at the baseball stadium.

    I'm kind of wondering how FF will settle into touring.  This year it was dipping their toes with some festival dates.  Next year its a smaller tour (for them) in big venues.

    With what happened, I wonder if they'll hit the brakes on their touring a bit.  They used to tour like they were 20.  If they go back to that I could see Arena's in smaller markets again.

    I wouldn't want to even attempt to get tix to a Foo show in Winnipeg in our 13,000 seat shed. Impossible at this point.

    Dave breaks down how he wrote ‘The Teacher’ on a new episode of Song Exploder. It just makes it even more heartbreaking.

    Love this more and more w/ each listen. I haven't been this excited about their music since high school w/ the first four albums out by then. This is early Foos all over it. Show Me How is something else. Never thought I'd hear something this deep, personal, and lo-fi at this point in their career.

    I hope they do a Vancouver show.  I really liked the new album, and would love to see the tour for it.

    That Studio666 film reeked of thinking one is funnier than one actually is.

    no one was talking about that film. I heard it was a stinker. But if I was at a show where Jack Black came out and sang Big Balls?? (I'm not even a jack black fan, I don't find him funny at all). that's fucking awesome!

    We have tickets to see them in Cincinnati in July. It will be hot in that stadium, but should be a good show.

    I thought the Studio 666 movie was fucking hilarious. The end of the movie when it morphed from more of a comedy into more of a campy horror movie was boring to me but that’s because I’m not a horror movie fan at all.

    Yeah, I enjoyed it too.
    You obviously can't take it serious, it's funny, silly, and and a campy horror all in one. If you watch it with that mindset, you will enjoy it.

    Decided to go the Seattle show this summer.   Bought Fan2Fan tickets in the lower section of the stands, hoping I can luck out and get GA at some point.

    Not sure what FF touring style is now.  They use to relentessly tour, but since the passing of Taylor, it seems maybe that's not a thing any more.  Maybe they'll play Vancouver next year, but I figured, fuck it, I love the new album, I want to see the tour :)
