Thanks for the pics.

Did the posters go pretty quick or did you buy yours pretty soon? Don't know if I'll make it in time for doors. Will be by there before doors and then after.

Youíre welcome and Iím glad to help!

There were 3 merch locations total. One at the entrance and two inside. The entrance sold out very quickly but the two other stands lasted for about 45 mins after doors opened.

I think youíll be fine as long as you get there before the doors open and be sure to look for other merch stands. Good luck

Got to the venue last night about 15 minutes after doors. Was able to get the regular and foil poster. Artist put the regular and foil poster up today. Foil is still available. No merch tables outside. 4 of them inside. The coins were cool. Pic of the sunsphere from the 1980 World's fair. Dave told a good story about the last time they played the arena was as the opener for the Chili Peppers. This was their first time headlining there (maybe their last since it wasn't a great turnout).

I was a little disappointed in the crowd. The security guy told me that they were expecting 8-10K. Looked like about 12K to me. They are playing 4 shows in fairly close proximity so that might have something to do with it. I'm seeing them next Monday and Tuesday in larger cities so I expect a larger turnout.

The dark blue and black shirt with stripes are the lady cuts. The rest are unisex. The eagle tour shirt is great. It looks black in the pics, but it's a blue heather shirt. Bought more merch than I needed, but I'm seeing them two more times so I'm sure I'll buy even more shit.

They played about 2 hours 45 minutes after the banter, intros, and everything. I don't know how Dave does it. Get there in time to see the Struts. They are a great band.

Thanks for the info, Status Serigraph never really hang around in putting their posters up for sale. It's nice but not for me

I really like this poster. Has a Halloweenish and the Sky is a Neighborhood look. He's a local artist. I had to pull off the interstate so I could snag the regular AP version because I was driving back. I knew it would sell out.

Anyone interested in the foil, it's still available.

http://statusserigraph.bigcartel.com...ridescent-foil

Also, both posters were still available 1 hour after doors. I don't know when they sold out, but I was surprised they were still available. They had sold out of a lot of their merch by the end of the show though.

18 x 24. According to his Instagram, he said there were only 24 of the foils at the show. I can't find any numbering on the poster though. He didn't state how many were made of the regular show poster.

my foo item collecting has fallen off a cliff lately, mainly due to not seeing anything i've needed or wanted. Got the cd and vinyl of concrete and gold but that's about it. Need to get in my loft and make a list of all the cd's along with the numbers so i can figure out which promos i may need but think that's about it.

Check the fuck out of these two pictures:

This Is A Call UK Promo Parlophone Cassette - backed with - hold on now, what the fuck??? EXHAUSTED!!

With a blink and you miss it (kinda, because you can't now see straight) lower down block letter "THE TAPE"





Now I'd LOVE to laugh at everyone and say I own this but I don't. I do know who does and they are not selling. I have permission to display and share because it's kinda crazy and important history wise.

I have never seen those two tracks together like that anywhere else before - not on a UK release... not on ANY release. The Call single is always backed with Winnebago & Podunk, or in it's minimalist form on say the Aussie cassingle then just Winnebago. And Exhausted as a US 12 inch promo was also backed with Winnebago. And of course as actual physical releases at least, Exhausted 12" went US only and Call everywhere else in multi formats (even including Canada).

Supposedly Exhausted was out a week before Call but I actually believe that the single sided Call and the Exhausted 12" came out at promo parties at the same time - though that's still kinda anecdotal evidence. But either way, NOBODY got these two tracks together as a single and nobody has ever shown them in isolated form paired together before.

So what then to make of the fact that Parlophone UK were throwing around a high quality CrO2 promo tape with Call backed with Exhausted?

1) Were they considering that as an A/B match for the UK single release?

2) Or were they considering WHICH of those two songs would be the best A side for the UK release?

It pretty much has to be one of those situations... so there's a great new question for the fooniverse to probably forever wonder about without a real answer lol

Either way that means this tape almost certainly predates all the actual releases and QUITE probably the original US REAL full promo as well.


Which the same source also has....






And is also super interesting because:

* Alban has it
https://www.discogs.com/Foo-Fighters...elease/2557481

* But it's NOT the same - the front cover is different!

Both have Tower Mastering and this new one the 26th May 95 date, Alban's exact date is impossible to read, but it looks like May and maybe 23rd vs 26th. Which kinda makes sense since his says just Side A and lists all the tracks in one block, vs the one here having the split into side A/B

That would indicate:

* It's highly likely that these could be test copies of mastering, and definitely test copies of layout. They MAY not even be the final audio master, although all the track run times appear final and the dates are very close together.

* They are both WAY before the next closest release which is the advance promo - where everything has been nailed down for final release

The years are still giving up the secrets hidden under Dave's bed lol
I have the tiac tape ... what's best site to attach photo too? Thanks

Depends what you are trying to do. We have the photo. Someone that owns it could add it to Discogs as a release.
