Default small gig in cologne 28/02/11

I didn't want to continue spamming the tour dates thread with this, so here's the info so far:

1Live, a German radio station, announced that the "radio concert of the year" is soon to be revealed. As of yet, band, place and date have not been named.
You can listen to an audio announcement (and maybe you'll recognize the singers' voice, eh?) on this site: http://www.einslive.de/musik/
Details will be revealed this Saturday.

This site says that the show will take place at the Gloria theater in Cologne on February 28th, a small venue with a capacity of 600 people. Again, your only chance of getting in is winning a ticket. I have no idea how you can enter the contest as of yet, but maybe someone else knows more than me?

Yeah, I'm almost sure it's Dave, the voice sounds like him, the foto
looks like him, and the music in the background sounds like foos.

OMG I have to get a ticket for this, but I can't find any infos how
to win a ticket.

It's part of the Telekom Music Moments, you can win tickets here (you need to have an address in Germany or Austria to participate): http://www.telekom-musicwire.de/foofighters-tickets

Die Frage sollte nicht allzu schwierig sein

They only give out 50 tickets total though, and the venue holds 600 people - even if there are a lot of industry, music press etc. folk on the guest list, some more tickets should be available from other sources as well. But no idea as to what these sources might be.

Thank you so much. I really hope, that there won't be 90 % press/industry people.

I wish those events would be in South Germany. If I win I'll need two days off because of the traveling. My boss will explode.

You're welcome!

My guess is that about 200-250 tickets will go out to fans, the rest will be industry, media etc.

And I know what you mean, I'd prefer it to be in Munich too, which would be a 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive from here...but Cologne & Berlin always seem to be getting the "special" kind of Foo shows.

Someone suggested this in the Sweden-gig thread and I thought it was a good idea...I don't really have any Foo-obsessed friends, meaning there probably wouldn't be anyone willing to travel to this show with me if I did win tickets. So, I'd offer my spare one to a fellow boardie if I win...and vice versa.

I just listened to that 1Live station and recorded the bits they said about Foo Fighters and the concert. It's about 9 mins long. You can hear Dave talking a bit, but the rest is just the guy who organized it and the moderator of the radio show.

Chances to win tickets are next Saturday, between 9 AM and 18 PM German Time, on that station. But they haven't said how you win them... I bet you have to call in at some point and have to be the 10th person or something like that... or answer some question? I really don't know... wish they had given more info...

Anyways, here's the recording:
--- oh damn, I'm not allowed to post links, since I haven't made any posts before --- If anyone wants it, drop me a pm, I hope I can send links through pm...

Here's what Dave said:
Hey everybody, this is Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters. We're playing the radio concert of the year. Cause I'm coming there to play a gig for you, on the 28th, in Cologne. Woaahh... Eins Live...

PS:
Another important info, they broadcast the (whole?) concert live on 02/28/2011 from 9 PM German time til XX PM. At least that's something positive for people who can't be there live... I hope some of us really have the luck to go there. Good luck, guys We need it. I have nobody to go with me to that show either, so if I should win 2 tickets, I'd give away one.

I'm in for the possible ticket sharing!

I'll PM you, I'd like to hear the recording you've made.
If they do ask questions, I hope it's something a bit more difficult than the question on the Telekom Music Moments site...I'm not sure if you can call in from outside Germany though, but maybe via Skype.

@ Karma Police:
Hm... I triend sending you a pm, but I think it didn't work, I fear

Why can't people like me, post a simple link?
Ok, I wasn't active since I registered 3 years ago.
But was there any trouble with links, or why is it not allowed for members like me to post a link?
Too bad, but you all probably have your reasons for making up this rule, so I have to accept it.
And I'm not here to complain, so don't get me wrong.

@ kurdt86
I'm from Wachtendonk, about 90 or 100 km north-west from Cologne.

Worked now, thanks for sharing this!

And I'm from Italy (Südtirol, if that tells you anything)...very close to the Austrian border.

I also don't have someone to go with, so I would share the tickets too.

I'm from a small village near Munich.
