Foos are headlining at the Marcus Ampitheatre on Thursday, June 28. So excited and totally unexpected!

You know it!! :D

And since this venue is seating, I'm wondering about a presale too.

I may sit this one out.

Mine too. Apparently to a non super fan spending your birthday in Wisconsin to see the Foo's isn't a big deal :( I think I only got Jazzfest because of it being in NOLA. It's only 600 miles from Kansas City and I'm super tempted to just go by myself...he will have another birthday next year, right?! :)

That's right during our vacation!

Time to cancel Gatlinburg and head up north!!

I'm super stoked. Two tours in a row now they have stopped in Milwaukee! I love seeing them at the AMP. 2003 was sick, as well as the FF/RHCP in 2000.

They need to have a Foo Fighters presale for people who registered before this year and not people who are just signing up because they added this date. Please.

They NEED to have those promised SOUTHERN STATES TOUR DATES added somewhere along the way! Just sayin! LOL! These festival shows are crazy! I'd rather have an ALL FOOS SHOW!:D

WWWBUKTN May 19th 2012 11:06 AM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
This is an all Foos show. The only other band that will be playing that night at the Marcus will be their opener. What goes on the other stages has nothing to do with this show as there are about six headliner stages that will be going at the very same time but those are not ticketed shows outside GA to the Summerfest.

This announcement made my entire summer..... CAN'T. WAIT.

Johnrougeux May 19th 2012 12:49 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
Any idea what ticket prices are going to be? I see it includes admission to summerfest, which, to me, sounds like an excuse to jack up the prices by the Fest people...hope not!

How about excluding those with under a 100 posts? :rolleyes:

This sort of elitist attitude sucks. Fans are fans and everyone should have an equal shot at tickets.

Too true. Not that I'll be going to this particular show but seen em 12 times, plus another 2 in the UK and 2 in America to come this year, but only 40 posts so clearly not a " real fan ". Equal shot or nothing at all it has to be. The days of the postboard getting any priority have gone for good.

Yawn, I'm tired of seeing the best tickets on Ebay and Stubhub so why give people who already don't make it a level playing field another advantage. Why shouldn't actual fans find themselves at the front of the line?

Well, let me know if you do. I'm considering it, but all seats are reserved (except for grass far from the stage) so no rail action. I'm seeing them twice in September, so I won't be heartbroken if I miss this one. Still, I'd go if somebody twisted my arm even a little bit :D

Who decides who an 'actual' fan is? Signing up on a message board 6 years ago? It doesn't matter what you do, touts will always get the tickets so I don't see how it's fair to exclude any fans from any sales.

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
Nice! I'll be going to this one. I don't care what seats I get, it's been too long since I've seen the Foo. Plus, I really want to see some Wasting Light material live.

fatback96 May 20th 2012 03:31 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
Ive been a huge Foos fan since 1995-6ish. Every time they, or any band for that matter, actually come to Milwaukee, I get screwed and can't go. I've never once joined this forum until now, so I shouldn't get presale rights? I would cut off my right pinky and most of my toes to see them live!
So how do presale passwords work?

Jake May 20th 2012 11:35 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
Saw 'em in St. Paul, but I'm glad I'll now likely be able to see them again!

sandsotime2 May 21st 2012 05:28 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
Well holy shit that's good news. Let me at the tickets.

This isn't a pay site where we pull that shit. It's all over Facebook and Twitter anyway when they do the presale. Foo love one and all.

That said, sometimes I get little treats of tickets and I hook up some fans from here. So there's that.

Traveled to St. Paul to see the Foo's for my birthday last year. Great show, plus they had Rise Against opening for them. Glad to see them back at Summerfest. I plan to take my 12 year old daughter and two of her friends to their first concert and who better to see then the Foo Fighters :D

Now the battle for tickets ;)

Chicago May 21st 2012 08:00 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
I'm hearing that there might be a pre-sale (Summerfest says they are waiting to hear back from Foo tour and management on that) and if there is, it will probably be on Thursday. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up. :)

I'm traveling on Thursday :( I'll be in the air 9:30-noon. Help!

I saw them at St.Paul too. We were in the front. There was a lady with her young daughter right up there with us too. It looked like she was having a great time. Have fun!

I just remember when ya'll did the contest that let people with shitty seats get GA tix to North America shows or whatever. That's probably the best way to do it, with little perks here.

Dave99GT May 23rd 2012 03:42 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
I am hoping there is a pre-sale, but if not, will be trying for tickets when they start selling on Friday.

Any word on presale!?!? I CANNOT MISS THIS CONCERT!!! :)

WWWBUKTN May 23rd 2012 06:39 PM

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
$100 for a ticket in the good sections with all the fees including Summerfest entrance. (I've always hated that because odds are I won't step a foot into Summerfest so they should really have entrances for just the Marcus like they do every other day of the year.) Anyhow it's fairly obvious that Summerfest was scrambling to fill this hole and overpaid to get them there. That price also refects the limited seating considering FF are normally playing GA park shows. It's a good venue and I'll gladly pay the price but I was just kind of laughing that they paid through the nose. If anybody else was available to fill that slot they would not have the FF in a million years. It's contrary to their business plan for booking which includes youngster groups before they really take off and has been groups to pacify their real customer who's a 45 year old who drinks Miller Lite. Looks like they have a pit too but that remains to be seen as the Ticketmaster listing just went up today. Doesn't look like there will be any presale either and since Summerfest sucks up all the tickets for their "Big Wig" program you'll be pulling a bunch of section 1 & 3, row Y tomorrow before it goes right to 7 & 8. Anyhow good luck, it's a good summer for shows all around.

Hey, how is the view from the lawn and areas further back? We're considering driving in from Minnesota for the show, but the prices are a bit steep (college age paying for it).

It is a really nice venue, rather small, so the lawn is good. And usually there are videoscreens set up to show close ups of the performers.

Sweet. I wouldn't mind just relaxing and watching the show for once like that haha. I've been on the floor for most of the shows I've gone to recently, including Foo in September at the Xcel.

Re: Summerfest in Milwaukee!!!
 
The view from the lawn isn't that great. I was at the last show at the Marcus (2003?) it was the best show I've ever seen. Try to get seats in the lower bowl, you won't regret it. Based upon ticket prices for other shows at the Marcus, $100 for this band is a real bargain. I expected the best seats to be twice as much.

I'll keep it in mind. The seats in the bowl sound ideal, but I'm not the one buying the tickets, my girlfriend is, (although she may be willing to spend for for the good shit :D ).

This is wild...I'm actually nervous posting something on this board. But I have to share my sheer joy about them playing in Milwaukee. Saw them at Lolla last year and it was amazing.

I plan on wearing out my keyboard on Friday to get seats!
