Nice.

Was amazing to be that close and not worried about being crushed by the crowd.

I am yes how bizarre you are not in my requests box, which isn't a bad thing as it appears to be full of creepers and basement dwellers, let me have your name via messenger here or on this post and I will look for you

It was because you came and stood with me, wasn’t it? Good to see you mate, catch you at the next one no doubt!

True, All My Life was a great tune to kick off..was expecting Run. Bit of crushing but nothing bad really! Closest I have ever been to the barrier at any gig!

Slaves were incredible and if that setlist of some of their best older songs didn’t sell them then I don’t know what could

Great show but glad we only did the one gig as there was only one change in the setlist

Now, I know people pay for a Foo Fighters ticket so they want to see a Foo Fighters show & Dave knows exactly how to give the people what they want... but was I alone in thinking the backing singers are used so little that, if they weren’t there they wouldn’t be missed?

Don’t get me wrong, I fucking love them (and what a sweet job they’re currently on) but I’d have loved to have seen an old Foo track reworked to use them or, if the Under Pressure was dropped for a cover that Dave could still drum and Taylor could still sing but it also had room for them to shine too (In the vein of the Christmas medley on SNL).

I've wondered the same. Are they used in any other songs beside TSIAN?

TSIAN & Dirty Water were the only 2 I recall them on.

Love the video of the stampede! We are in there somewhere! Like others, we were at back of the right pit near walkway, great spot despite, as mentioned above, the all-day-drinking-dads getting slightly shovey later on!
Was my first Foo Fighters show since 1997 when I had seen them at their own show at the T&C in Leeds in the summer and again in December in Glasgow, where somewhat weirdly even for then, they were the support act for The Prodigy.
I actually enjoyed Starcrawler, absolutely loved Slaves thinking I would hate them and thought Kills were completely pointless.
Great day out, 100% be back next time. Cheers.

Same but at the left hand side, furthest from the camera.

Saw two ladies trip each other and fall face first. Shambolic stewarding both days.

I wouldn't be massively surprised if they're back for a festival next year, although it may be pushing a bit in terms of when the tour is wrapped up. Could just do a one off, who knows.
