that's not that bad, i saw them at the Filmore and it was 500 people. I got ridiculously lucky and it was one of the best nights of my life. The gig was amazing and meeting Grohl before the show was the icing on the cake. So with twice as much capacity, twice as many chances as NYC, right?!

Mark my words: foo fighters will play the metro on August 6th.

They make the most sense out of anyone. I mean pearl jam did the secret club show before the big gig and so did soundgarden. with the metro not having anything "booked" yet its obviously gonna be something huge and considering the history dave has with the metro its gotta be them. I mean the post on fb hints and almost confirms some sort of unplanned gig in chicago around lollapalooza. could you see them playing anywhere else? me neither

now the only hard part is waiting until something is announced. I for one hope they put tix up for sale online as opposed to saying " tix are $20 at the door. first come first serve" since i feel like it would be easier to snag tix. anyone know if this is the way soundgarden or pearl jam did it? i know TCV sold tix online

I'm even closer- Deerfield! Think it would be an all ages show? FF are a huge band and Grohl is cool so I know they'd want to play to those of us younger than 21 or 17 but Metro has a reputation of being strict.

Well since the LA gigs. I knew there will be a gig in Chicago. I attended the Pearl Jam show at Vic Theatre in 2007 a few days before Lollapalooza. They always do this every single year.

It is getting a little late in the game to announce something. My guess is that if there was a show, it'll be 18 or 21 and over depending on the club. The guys who work my event do security all over the city and the Metro is one of the few places that doesn't hire outside security so I'm having a helluva time finding out if there is anything going on there. I do sincerely think they are going to do something this week.

The Metro might hold 1,000 people jam packed. Maybe. They could announce an hour before they played and it would be sold out in five minutes.

I would just like if they did it for true fans, and not for some random bastards who would be there just to say 'YA, I WAS THERE!!1!1!!'

I will be a block away from the Metro working all this upcoming weekend... I can get to the box office before anyone could if that was the only place they were selling tickets.

I'm a little further than you but will camp out all night today if I thought they'd go on sale tomorrow and that was the only way. I've seen them in a small venue and it's seriously the best thing there is. I do not want to miss it. Go over there, knock on the door, see if they will fess up to it

Ha! I am leaving to pick up a paycheck directly across the street from the Metro right now, but the box office is not going to be open yet.

See if you see a white limo hanging around there-- What if it's really somewhere else?!

No white limo.

I honestly would guess the Vic Theatre... We'll see what happens though.

I'll see if I can find anything out with that venue, I can get nothing on the other. I'm powerless! I have to at least feel like I'm doing something to get tickets to this show that doesn't even exist.
