Default Tonight's show in St. Paul

Anybody know if there is an opening band? I haven't been to a show since last year in Des Moines and was just wondering how early we need to arrive.

What an incredible opening band. That was so special. Gang of Youths were incredible! The presence, sound and skill is so rich and real. That band will be huge. Foos are so fun. I do wish they'd cut out 45+ minutes of extended jam goofiness and cover band banter, in exchange for another 6-8 Foo Fighters originals. Shiflett is so good. I love watching Rami do his thing. Very good crowd! The Sky is a Neighborhood is not in my top songs from their catalog, but it was the standout last night!

OMMFGG!!! Band of youths KILLED! And this comes from a woman who never sees the opening acts. Singer danced like Marc Bolan and Prince gave him lessons and he wanted to outdo them both! Will be getting their music wherever I can find it!

And from a 63-year old who has been seeing live rock shows for 51 years, may I just say that Foo Fighters are the hardest-working men in rock and roll! Haven't seen a stage show even close to this since the Who in the 1970's did a laser light show at the long-gone Spectrum in Philadelphia (which I came in from LA for because I had tickets to it). The hydraulic lift drum riser was nothing short of genius and Taylor Hawkins was amazing-the whole night was magic. Glad I brought extra earplugs, as people needed them and I was glad to share.

Since I travelled from Florida to Minnesota for the show I was thankful to snag a GA ticket from one of the fan club ladies (thank you, Juliette) and met some really sweet women. I probably spent most of my November Social Security check, but if I die today I will go with ringing ears and a shit-eating grin an army of undertakers will not be able to erase!!!

GoY are doing 8 nights in Melbourne and they are all sold out so they’ve got a few fans 😄

Glad you had a great evening Sammilee, they are just so awesome and very sad I’ve not been able to get to a second show, keeping fingers crossed that something else will crop up or there is CJ19, I really cannot wait another 3 years for the next tour cycle!

Koala, I am 63 and I swear as great as they were, it is probably my last arena show EVER. I was walking with a cane and people were very pushy to get closer and I thought I was going to get knocked over and break a hip! I went back a bit but was so thrilled to get to see Foos again after 18 years since my last FF show! Dave Grohl is a musical savant, the King Midas of Rock. Band was tight as a clam's ass! Can barely walk and spent most of Friday in bed, but it was well worth the trip! Wish you could have seen it! Worth every nickel!
