Sweet write up.

I have been a fan for a long time - but it was my first live show - and it fucking outstanding. Thanks for the great job summing it up.

Trying to get over the depression that the show is over - and hoping like hell that there will be a 2012 leg (so many obvious cities missed - I am thinking it has to happen).

I attended this concert. was my first foo show. all i can say. it was beyond AMAZING! Best night of my life so far! I have the entire concert just replaying in my mind. One of my favorite moments was when chris and dave we're doing the stacked actors song solo ... and then dave goes down the runway stage... starts to play his solo...... then lift off! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!

Another favorite moment was during Monkey Wrench. Arena went dark, quiet guitars and drums playing... and all you see is lighters & cell phone lights! "That's f**king beautiful!' Loved every moment of this show and can;t wait to see more of them in my future! =)

...I don't understand.

Seriously, though, I wasn't trying to be mean or anything. It's just that people are always getting high at concerts. It's nothing new. If it was 35 years ago, you'd have to deal with thousands of people smoking joints. Hell, my friend went to a concert about 5 years ago and the whole place smelled of marijuana. Just be thankful it was only one this time.

Well it was a non-smoking event, no matter which kind of smoke and yes it will be a part of it doesn't have to either though..

One thing pointed out on the set list was that the reviewer didn't include White Limo... so there was another song amongst the many..

Maybe it's different at usa arena shows compared to uk arena shows, but if you are smoking a regular cig at an arena show here, you are hauled out at the scruff of your neck! (no smoking policies here in the uk) You are caught smoking a joint inside an arena here the fuzz are sent for! Maybe security in the states don't give a monkeys?!

Security cares about that stuff, but most people get away with it in the crowd. They'll look for people smoking but the only time I see people get kicked out is when someone from the fun police decides to point out the person to security.

I was actually bummed in LA the first night when I couldn't smell weed at all. The second night, someone a few feet from me was smoking pot within the first chorus of Bridge Burning and it was kind of a relief....like "Ok, now this is an actual concert"

I don't really smoke pot (and when I have, I tend to get paranoid so 20,000 people isn't what I want to be around anyway) so I've never felt compelled do that, but as a cigarette smoker, I tend to just follow the crowd. If I see multiple people smoking and I've had a few drinks, I might have one too but I've never really been super compelled to go out of my way for it unless there's a place I can sneak outside for a second

So far there's been weed in the air at every FF show I've been to in the US. I actually quite like the smell. And I'm probably nostalgic, but I kind of miss the dusty air that rock shows used to have.

I don't really have the urge to smoke at shows, same goes for drinking...but I have no problem with people doing it, as long as they don't act stupid.

I got a compromise: Sneak in edibles. All the fun of being high, but no smelly bothersome smoke.
