New Zealand requests you!
 
Currently in Christchurch, NZ at Electric Avenue ($110-130 per ticket), Hagley Park event with Dizzy Rascal. I'm wearing Red Hot Chilli Peppers t-shirt and I have had 5 people asking when you guys will visit?

Have they not just toured Oz and NZ?

I think he means the RHCPs (based on the T-shirt comment)?

Exactly.

This is the FF Tour Section i.e. everything about the Foos on tour - not other bands.

If you want to get a message to RHCP, this place is about the last anyone connected to them will look! :lol:

To be fair to OP, they tend to play Auckland, not Christchurch - the only time they've visited that city was in 2015, and that was a bit of a schamozzle.

I am not sure of NZ geography and travel costs but we are much the same with Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam only playing London in the UK.

I have to commute from Edimburgh, Scotland and book hotels and trains - its a 4.5hr commute each way. To make things more expensive - PJ and the Foos are the same week so its a double commute!

Pearl Jam haven't played Scotland in 18 years.

Glad I was at the front of the Q - the first few thousand people had no issues at all - then it turned into a fustercluck. That was about handling of the masses that arrived late.

Your link to the truck crash had nothing to do with CHch - that was the band moving gear AFTER Christchurch to the impromptu Auckland Town Hall gig. So that's a bit unfair to load on the folks down south.

Not implying any such thing, my guy. Just throwing in an extra bit of info to add to the point that they don't really make a habit of getting around all corners of the country, even though there was that attempted effort in 2015 with the additional date.

OK sorry my bad - misread on my part - took them all as links to the ChCh gig :o

And of course the 2015 truck crash was in a ("probably" planned but not fully confirmed until way closer than usual to date) effort to keep to the 2011 promise to play the Auckland Town Hall again after the Christchurch earthquake benefit gig.

Which was bad enough... only the day before AT the 2015 ChCh gig Dave was off again... promising to be back to ChCh for a FREE gig (admittedly by 2027 lol).

Which was of course immediately hauled up last year with the Auckland only date... upon which the "always front and centre spokesman for the band Nate Mendel" /intense sarcasm... what the fuck... yes seriously lol... had to comment:

https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainmen...ise--this-time

And to top it all off they did of course play the scheduled 2015 Auckland gig the day after the cancelled Town Hall (crash) gig, having lost all the main instruments, and flying out all the backup gear direct from LA to AKL, to be done and fly it all directly back to LA again at their own cost.

Clearing customs in under 24hours is no mean feat, gonna cost you money... but hey we do 100% profit handover benefit gigs via stopovers at no notice en route to Goat Island for the most insane concert we've ever done before hitting Brisbane for another benefit gig to raise money for Queensland flood victims.

http://fasterlouder.junkee.com/foo-f...2432011/818934

And obviously at the 2015 Auckland gig Dave totally apologized for the truck crash and promised the Town Hall gig would go ahead at some point... :lol: :lol: Nobody least of all me is forgetting THAT

You'd call utter bullshit a 100 times on any other band - only I'm sure he has a black book labelled "Bullshit I know I've said and have to put right before I die". It's probably stapled to his passport.
