Average Age And Sex Of A Foo Fan?
 
This has probably been discussed a gazillion times before on here, but I'm new, so please forgive me?
Very curious about the typical age and gender of the FF fanbase.

I've never been to a Foo Fighters show, :eek: (they only ever play big festivals near me and i hate festivals.) but I have been a fan of Dave and his music since Nirvana. I am in the same age bracket as Dave and I am female.
I know loads of women in their 30's and 40's who are fans of FF and especially Dave. He's the thinking, rockin woman's sex symbol for sure! :p

I'm guessing this forum is mainly teen guys? And from videos of shows they get the typical male rock audience but with a lot of girls in there too.

Looking forward to hearing if you are male, female and roughly your age group. :) Yeah?

Oh I can assure you I'm ALL male :cool: I did have a nice birthday thanks!

Yeah, I'll go to Reading if I go to one of them but it depends on the rest of the line up that day for me. I don't really know if I can be arsed to see the boys at a festival and playing the same set I've seen so many times before. I'm still holding out for that Arena tour!

It will be sods law.If I end up missing out getting a ticket the only place they will do is r&l, if I end up getting a ticket they will end up playing arenas later in the year!
