Tuesday: Fly back to Melbourne
Wednesday: Pack my bags
Thursday: Fly to Sydney, FF in Sydney
Friday: Fly to Gold Coast
Saturday: FF in Gold Coast

I'm going to be so used to seeing them every couple of days, the depression is gonna hit me like a brick wall!
Wow!! 5 shows that week for you! Sounds awesome. And yes, the foo funk will be bad. I think it's better to know about the funk, tho. There's nothing worse than feeling horrible without knowing why. We'll be here for you, brosef ;-) The forum really does help with the post-foo blues.

Yes, I refused all Foo related tunes in my car during the past week and finally popped in WL this morning. Yet ANOTHER wave of euphoria set in, and then the depression at realizing I was not going to feel that awesome electricity from a show again for a while.

The show was Brilliant, even from a side stage view. The "rear" view suited me just fine plus being on the side you have the screen and you have a great view of Taylor just KILLING those drums. One talented Mofo, but we all know that. I never really cared for acoustics of the Forum as I missed some of the conversations that went on. Overall A++++ show.

I get three weeks off before my next shows. It will take me that long to recover.

Haha no we don't! Guess it's a bit easier for us though, since flights are cheap between states and it's not too far to drive say from Melbourne to Adelaide etc if you wanted to.

Modtang - glad I'm not the only one who's gonna have the Post FF Blues so bad! Can you imagine if we were doing Perth as well? Haha. I almost did!

Yeah Perth was just too expensive to fly to so I gave it a miss, which kinda sucks coz I've never been there. Its not like I would've seen much of the place anyway.

I'm looking forward to bumping into some of you when we line up at some ridiculous time so we can get up the front.

Let me know if you need help coping after the back to back shows....may I suggest filling your auto's CD changer with nothing but Foo Fighters to start? Definitely helps me during my hour long commute to work and back
I danced my legs off for two nights straight down in the pit! I met some really nice people on Thursday night on the right side. Friday on the left side got very crammed with tall and rude people.

I loved seeing Dave drum with Cage the Elephant on Friday. Also got to hear I Should Have Known (personal anthem this year, and missed it on Thursday).

I am avoiding the post concert letdown, reading the forums. Tomorrow at work will be hard. I am going to hate real life after two nights of Foo.

This thread needs whiskey.

Post-concert depression is very real. It occurs no matter the band. I wonder why it's not on webmd yet or at least wikipedia. It has a facebook page!
