    Forum last night was AMAZING. Great show - and while we were towards the back Dave had a 2nd stage way out in our back 40 that he performed on a couple of times - incl an Acoustic set with the lights up. Took a tumble running back though!

    OMIGOD was that amazing or what?!?!?!?!?! I wasn't supposed to be at tonight's IZOD show but a friend had an extra ticket and it didn't take too much convincing. Helped that I had a ride there and back to the city which was my big hang-up.

    So many highlights... Krist Novoselic playing accordion on These Days, the rising platform across from the stage, Dave talking smack to the people sitting down, This Is A Call, Everlong (my all-time favourite), crazy fan who managed to get on stage and bounced around for a bit before diving back into the pit after a guard tries to chase after him, Dave talking about how it's the first time he's seen people tailgating at their shows and how they've finally made it (or something like that). AND, the best part was NOBODY in my row shuffled back and forth to get beer or pee, so I could watch the entire show uninterrupted. What a beautiful thing.

    They played for close to 3 hours. Whole reason I originally didn't want to go tonight was because I really didn't think I needed to see them 3x but after tonight, I'm so happy I get to see them two more times at MSG and Newark!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
    I'm late on this, but I was at the Izod show too...honestly, I think it was one of the best shows I've ever been to. A lot of times I'm always slightly disappointed after seeing my favorite bands live, I really don't know why, but I walked out of that show with the biggest fucking grin ever. I was never aware that they were such talented musicians, to be pulling out long jams and solos like they did that night. The 3 hour set, the Pink Floyd cover, Krist Novoselic on stage with Dave...it was mind blowing. I was actually kind of surprised when Krist came out and Dave mentioned the anniversary, no one really seemed to know what he was talking about...but that kind of made it more special for those of us that did.

    Dave Grohl is a fucking hero.
    Thanks EPOTTSIII!

  • I was late in the piece for good tix, but wife and I were sitting on the couch, when "Rope" came on V channel.
    I turned to my wife and said - "Why the heck are we not going to this concert?". 10 mins later they're on order, and we're stoked.

    Concert at Adelaide oval will be reminiscent of PJ 2009 concert.
    Can't wait!

  • Just an FYI for anyone that might be interested. I was perusing Amazon's vinyl selection and it seems that all of the old Foos albums are being reissued on November 21st. This may have already been known but it was the first I saw of it.

    And for what it's worth, What Records is taking pre-orders for Limited Deluxe versions, I'm guessing these are UK pressings. And they are "on sale". More pricey than the Amazon pre-orders though. Not sure what the deluxe versions entail but since I got the What Records email before I saw this I already ordered them. Oh well ;)
