Exactly 3 weeks since I saw them in Paris and exactly 3 days till I see them again in Detroit. Happy days !!

Now found out they're playing Brazil next year on my birthday - that would be a roadtrip
Would LOVE to see them overseas!!

People are not getting their Will Call tickets till 5:30 or 6:00. But everyone has got up front. Don't get there at 3:00 expecting to get in if you win. Just saying....

The show on Wednesday had posters, but they sold out like THAT. I got one while dad and I were sitting in line for the doors to open.

My advice would be to get there about an hour early, stake a place in line, then go grab a poster and a shirt or whatever else you're gonna get. I'm pretty surprised how fast I was able to race to get to the barrier. Considering the doors had just opened and there weren't many people in the section where I went, it was a lucky break.

we don't live very far from the Xcel. that's why we were able to get there so easily.

No need to worry.

Got a ticket. Im in GR, but leaving from Kzoo around 4.

I was at the 2008 GR show, i was in the corner of where the stage meets the runway and HAD to exit. I was getting crushed and being a 5'4 120lbs guy, Im gonna lose. I found a spot by the B-stage and in an open seat in the bowl.

Gonna be awesome!

I got my tickets in the mail this past Monday. The day I was going to sell them, I get my waiver. Thank god. Talk about a godsend. And to boot, it's my BDay as of midnight the night of the concert. I'm so freaked right now. Doubt I'll even sleep tonight.
Anyways, back to the mosh waiver...I never heard anything about this ever. My tickets are GA main floor and I never got anything in the mail other than my tickets.
Question: Does anyone know if there are any meet and greets? Or how to meet the band before or after the show ( that isn't going to get me locked up...lol )? Thanks. See you guys tomorrow! Peace

my advice would be to wait by the buses afterwards. Here in MN there's a bar across the street from the Xcel that they usually go to after shows here, but they didn't go there this time, which left me bummed out.

I'll be there and it'll be my third Foo show to date (I also went to the Detroit and Grand Rapids shows from '08--some rowdy crowds then). My brother and I have GA tickets and will probably get there early in the hopes of getting front row like the last two times. We ordered our tickets back when the presale was going on, and we never received a waiver either. I'm hoping it's not something they dump on us at the door.

I have 2 extra seated tickets for the show. They're pretty good seats if anyone is interested.

They don't have meet and greets.

Sometimes kids wait for them after around the buses. Sometimes they stay and party and some times they get the hell outta dodge. Just depends on the vibe and what is on schedule for the next show.
