There will definitely be a clause in their contract before after playing Lollapalooza about playing in Chicago area or 120 miles from the area for 90 days at least. I don't see a Chicago indoor or outdoor show in the fall. Maybe January/February 2012.

As long as it's sometime this year or early next year i don't care. I'll be patient.

How do you know this about a contract restricting them to shows? I would have figured headliners really could do whatever but I guess not. Ive been to Lollapalooza a few times. It's filled with a bunch of jackasses with no tastes in music, it's usually a hundred degrees and you're packed in like a sardine all for the low price of $215. It's really not worth it but I'll probably have to bite the bullet and pay $90 for a single day ticket.

It would be nice if they came to chicago besides Lollapalooza. I became a huge fan after seeing my first show at the allstate arena in february 2008. It was the best night of my life and changed the way i will view music for the rest of my life

I hope they'll go there. It kinda sucks that they always go to the same countries. Always the usual USA / Canada, AUS / NZ, UK / West Europe and Japan.

What about Central Europe (they only played in Hungary once), East Europe, South American or Asia?

Talk about a brutal day...having to wait around an entire day with all types of live music all around you. I couldnt imagine a worse senario in life.

that guy is a very well-know and hugely well-connected brazilian columnist, he loves to play around with this stuff but everytime he just announces it without beating around the bush, it tends to be true. he has the needed connections and if he was officially related to the bands he writes about, I'm sure notes like this would be considered official.

don't take it this way just yet, official anouncements are the only ones to be trusted, but I wouldn't think it would be a stretch to think this as 98% true.

Oh..my...

Someguy who works here for T4F (apparently, i don't know exactly) said that in a 90% sure that they would arrange everything to come on december 1st. He also "predicted" the arrival of Paul McCartney and AC/DC to South-America.. So.. this is getting shape. anyway i can't completely start to light up fireworks 'til the official confirmation. but it's a huge step ahead, definetely.

But as we in NZ have the loudest crowds & Foos sell the most albums here in relation to our population, they really have to come here

I'm sure the population of NZ is the happiest in the whole world because of that.

well, looks like Argentina is now 100% confirmed for december 1st: http://www.omelete.com.br/musica/foo...-na-argentina/

this is the biggest brazilian entertainment website and they don't put out news without checking them first, so you can start your fireworks now.

other shows in latin america will happen for sure, just a matter of time for their announcements as well.

Wow! So happy for all of you South American fans! For as long as I have lurked and posted on this board, you have been asking, begging, pleading for the Foo Fighters to come to you, and now they are! Awesome
