Yeah got inner pit wristband. Stood about 6 back from the end of the runway, so much room around me it was ridiculous. Nice to have a pen that isn't totally crammed in.

I'm loving all the videos being posted up buy Jovihammer and Eleanorrigby from Sunday......watching and reliving a great night

I don't suppose anyone managed to capture ALL of Best Of You on film did they? Especially the bit at the end where he starts up again and then says "C'mon...I'm not singing it TWICE! You guys are better than that!"

My OH couldn't make MK as she was working and just couldn't get out of it....doubly bummer as we both had tix for Saturday at Wembley!

Damn, post Foo's blues has kicked back in again now!

Decided for back of the pit Sat & did the rail Sunday. Didn't get crushed & wasn't surrounded by drunk arseholes which was a refreshing change.

Some absolute bargain MK items up for grabs on ebay right now....

Broken Leg tour t-shirt anyone? That will be 150 please sir, but I'll throw in one of those key rings.

What's that? You only really want a key ring? OK, that's anything from 3 to 30

Poster? Yes, it was nice wasn't it. You can have it for 225

Flippin' flippers

My favourite track on the album! Couldn't believe the pissed up pillock next to me who said to his mate "what's this f***ing shit?" during Dave's solo. At least his mate knew it was off Sonic Highways, whereas pillock spent most of the gig with his back to the stage trying to stay upright.

Funnily enough, there aren't any Sunday night posters up for sale. Guess that says something about the Saturday crowd

I suspect the break a leg shirt will turn up on the official store sooner or later.

Anyone who ordered one of the online baseball style t-shirts - keep me updated if you receive yours. I have one on order.

The reason they do it is sadly simple, people will pay their prices. It's the same with touts, they wouldn't exist if fans didn't pay their prices.

When are they due to be sent out though? This week or next as the listing gave two dates?

And this could be remedied if the band would put those same shirts and posters up on their store site. Any time you make a poster limited edition of a certain number, flippers are going to buy most of them up. They could make more of them and not limit them to a certain number (or publish how many were made) and the demand and price would not be nearly as much.

I think so, too.
They've put up all the Posters from the Euro-summer-tour a few weeks ago. Maybe they'll do the same with the MK-Posters.

Eek! Re: Foo Fighters at Milton Keynes

Hey all, first post here, but been keeping an eye on the forums for a while, since getting tickets last year! Just wanted to say thank you! My friend and I went to Milton Keynes on Sunday, in fact it was our first Foo gig, shamefully, but it won't be our last! Anyhow, thanks to the forum we knew how to get pit bands and we had the time of our lives! Fabulous view, and a great day from start to finish, so thanks guys!!!
