I'm hoping for an intimate tour of hockey arenas, rather than stadiums. It would be so badass to be able to see the Foos from 2 levels above the stage, rather than 5. It'd practically be like they're playing in my living room.

This WILL be the year I go to more than one show...

Man, these massive stadium shows suck, but I'll take what I can get...

I wouldn't be so sure of that anymore. Almost every concert they have booked so far is in a stadium venue that holds at least 40,000. The ACC holds 19,800 for a concert so that's why I'm thinking the Rogers Centre unless they decide to play Tim Horton's Field in the Hammer. Wishful thinking I know but it can hold about 30,000 for a concert and is close to brand new.

I'm hoping the two U.S. shows announced so far turn out to be the exceptions rather than the rule. They might be big enough to play stadiums in major markets, but not all over the U.S. RFK isn't sold out. I'm hoping for indoor arenas but I guess all will be revealed Tuesday.

Let's not go there...Foo Fighters haven't played in Kentucky since 2000. I'm hoping that next year breaks that trend.

That would really break my heart if they don't come to Texas.

Hopefully will see them when they come around the Philly area but I'm with the many people here hoping that it'll be a place like the Well's Fargo Center, and not CBP or any open arena. BUt i'lll probably end up going either way

I'm in a suburb outside of Kansas City, so any shows that they do around this area (KC, STL, any Oklahoma, Iowa, Nebraska shows) I'm in for. I'm just hoping that the sale date isn't until sometime next week, preferably closer to my payday

Three words... ACLFest in Austin. (ok, maybe that's like 5?)

Many signs pointing to that, including the Foos recent filming & recording at ACL studios; the lack of many decent festival options in US; Dave's non-performing presence in Austin the last few years (SXSW) plus I don't believe ACLfest has their lineups set yet. (at least publicly)
