Since we had the shittiest seats for this show.....TOP ROW(we were so high we could touch the ceiling) I'm hoping he wasn't blowing smoke up our ass......I need another show with a closer vantage point.

I was there MoFo's! Someone brought a football helmet to the gig and threw it on stage and knock down one of Shiflets amps.

Yeah sadly Dave lies sometimes.

Like when he says "Breakout" is for "all the old Foo Fighters fans".

He kept throwing out the "old foo fighters fans" line before Breakout in all the UK shows over the summer. When he first said it I got excited like they were going to play I'll Stick Around or maybe Weenie Beenie........

Anyway at Wembley earlier in the year he referred to me as an "old man" because I was at the first UK FF gig. I'm only 31! :cool:

Back in 2007, I think in Manchester, he said they were going to play an old one that they haven't played in ages, then started In Your Honour.

I remember that, and the disapointment that it wasn't something better!

I still remember the look of terror in Shiflett's eyes after that happened! it went right past his head!
Dave said *multiple* times last night that they'd be back to the Electric Factory (enough that I take him seriously). That's really cool. ???
and at the last NJ show he dedicated Breakout to Me and the "old foo fighters fans". also said that about Monkey Wrench last night.

The electric factory show could have been a comment to get the crowd going. But he said it several times and even ended with "we'll see you at the electric factory" ~ seems like it was said too much just to have been a crowd pleaser. At least thats what I'm hoping

I can't believe I didn't see it... considering I spent most of the night watching him.

I was at the Columbus show, too and even though the setlists were nearly identical, I was so impressed at how fresh everything seemed. Some of the stage banter was the same, but honestly, not most of it. I was with a couple of people, and one kept asking me, "Did he say that in Columbus?" and everytime, it was a "no."

Because I sort of knew what was coming all night, I was so excited with the encore surprises of Wheels and BLACKBIRD! Even though he only played it for about a minute, it was a total highlight for me. Something I'll never forget.

The only minor downside was from where we were sitting, the mix was a little off. For lack of the technical knowledge to explain it, I'll just say that Dave was waaaaay too loud and Shifty all but disappeared at times. To paraphrase "Back & Forth" it wasn't that it was too grungy... it can never be too grungy... but I wonder if they didn't lose some of the... notes. :p

:p

not last night - that was from the 2002 Electric Factory show that we were referring to - I was front row then and never forgot the helmet flying on stage and Shifty's expression.
