Hard to say. I have seen a show there almost every year for the past 7 and they've all played pretty much full length shows.

I'm all Foo'd up!! Everyone stay safe in the heat!

I was looking for two "reasonably priced" tickets together in sec 6 forever, but settled on the bleachers. Oh well, at least it's not lawn.

Out... At Summerfest grounds by 2PM. Everyone enjoy the show! Bring your earplugs and sunscreen if you are getting there in the afternoon. I figure to bring a quart bottle of water in as well. It was cool of them to relax the rules a little because it is hot as shit outside!

This! Seriously the hottest day of the summer here in the Midwest so far! Come prepared people...they're setting up misting stations around the grounds as well. I'm going to be bringing lots of water in

Hey fellow Foo fans! Usually scalpers get their hands on front row tickets, which bum all of us out. Super happy to say that this morning, my sister and I acquired FRONT ROW tickets through a radio contest (we bought yellow section tix the moment they went on sale). Can't say how excited I am! As religiously obsessed fans, this'll be a night we won't forget!

Any thoughts on a sign I could hold up to the band? There's always the old standby, "Wattershed".

Wow! What an awesome show!

I don't think the setlist was anything too special, although I was surprised to hear Big Me and Hey, Johnny Park!

Bridge Burning still gone. I hope that's back at Reading since I missed it at Roundhouse.

They're also still playing too many covers.

3 covers
2 songs each from ESP&G, IYH, 1x1 and TINLTL.

That ain't right.

I'd like to know why Bridge burning is dropped too. I think that the two covers towards the end of the set list will drag things down a bit tbh, since perhaps a lot of people won't know those songs?

I just don't understand playing 3 covers at one show when you have 100 of your own songs to play. I know it's the whole "They enjoy playing them" thing, but surely there are lesser played FF songs they'd enjoy playing as well.

There are plenty of covers they could play but it seems to be the same ones.Nevermind, just glad to get the chance to see them again!

I'm so sick of hearing Young Man Blues.
It was nice to hear Hey JP-I don't think I've heard it live before. Other than that it was a pretty predictable set list.

To be fair, Surrender wasn't really a full cover, they just did one chorus. So that didn't take up too much time. But I agree on Breakdown and Young Man Blues...they're just so long, I'd rather be hearing some other Foo songs! I was pretty bummed that Bridge Burning wasn't in there either. Although I wasn't expecting Dear Rosemary so that was a nice surprise. Song choices aside, it was still an awesome show.

EDIT: They also played a verse and chorus of "Message in a Bottle" by the Police during Breakout, so there's another cover

It was so hot and the pit had zero air movement, but overall a good show. Nate lost his bop by mid-show, Pat kept smiling, Shifty mopped a lot of sweat from his brow and Dave & Taylor were hyper as always.

The distance between the stage & pit was minimal so we were literally close enough to see every facial expression.

I got a good look at the Rick fuckin Nielsen black & white checkered guitar. It was beat, worn around all the edges. I loved Cheap Trick in my younger days so that was a treat for me.

Plus 'In The Flesh?' which is one of the weirdest persistent FF covers. I can only guess that it and YMB are vocal rest songs for Dave (along with CDITS of course) since they're both light on vocals.
