Any tips to meet the band?
 
My friends and I are going to the Pittsburgh show. Does anyone know of any meet and greets?

Thanks.

Wait round the back of the venue by the bus or exit gates.

And if you're at a big venue, it probably won't happen.

Not specifically related to this band, but just in general I'm in favour of not letting the 'trying (and probably failing) to say howdy to the band' thing overshadow the 'Hot-dang! we're at a <insert band here> gig - how fucking great is that?' thing. My very limited experience of this band is that the gig thing is pretty fucking great :-) Good luck with the saying howdy thing though - hope it works out for you.

Wise words.

You're right. I've not met them myself, and maybe it'll never work out, but I'm satisfied as long as I get to see great shows, especially if those are happening out of my own country and if I get to meet some fellow fans.

Meeting the band at the venue before the show.
 
Me and my friend are so stoked to go to our first Foo's show, and we were talking about what if we got the chance to meet the band before soundcheck or whatever at the venue. But, how early would you have to be there? Is it even likely or possible?

It's possible. But more likely AFTER the show. But if you get to the show early...you can hear soundcheck and then take you're place on the FRONT row! :) I was WAY early in Little Rock, but I would suggest at least 4 hours before. Good luck!

Meeting members after the show
 
Ok so im still patiently waiting for the Foo Fighters to announce a Texas date, but until then i will ask a question that im curious about if other people do.

Has anyone ever waited around after the show at the band members tour buses to try and get a picture or autograph?

I've only done it once with a buddy of mine for another band. We waited about 1-2 hours behind the venue with a bunch of other fans and when they came out they were cool and hung with everyone and took photos and signed stuff.

Didnt know if any of you have tried this lately and if you were successful or not.

Thanks!

We hung for bout an hour on the last tour and they didn't hang with us. Though they did acknowledge us.We needed to wait a while before driving anyways.

Yup! My first Foo show ever, back in March. I waited around the back before the show, we found out when Soundcheck was, made sure we were by the stage door, band drive in, Dave gets out, wanders over for a chat and signs our arms ect, BEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE!! If any one tells you not to bother, DONT LISTEN, you can only try!

Should be easy then! I didnt even have to ask haha, the venue staff were soo chilled they actually told me when to go round the back and it was like so chilled I wandered inside when they were unloading gear and they let me watch haha, and a guy in line with me was looking for the loo and he accidently went into the VIP room and there was no security. it was funny

I haven't seen Dave after the show for years, but almost always see the other band members.
