    I think I saw something saying that they were likely to be headlining the Euro Festival circuit this summer and those things are going to be announced soon. I probably saw this on their Facebook group page thing.

    Hmm. The Foo's website's lobby/countdown now has different music and text "the wish is drawn inside..."

    Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album. I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone. As has everything, it seems...

    The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.

    Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.

    To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.

    Dave Grohl

    I think it's more FUN to be a fan of the Foos than it is to be a fan of PJ

    True, but PJ has better setlists.

    This is very very true. The one thing I don't get about FF is that they haven't begun mixing up their set lists yet this far into their career.

    I think FF have a much more mainstream fans who aren't necessarily hardcore who wouldn't know b sides and outtakes. I could be wrong though. just from experience, people who seem to be fans of FF are more casual music fans than PJ fans are.
