Default Getting old

Does anyone think back to Foo Fighters concerts they attended and think to themselves that it was just like yesterday.The last time I saw the Foos in Belfast was at the Tennants Vital festival and I was thinking it was like two or three years ago when it was 2012 and Marley park was 2007,that is nearly 12 years ago and the first time they played Oxygen was in 2005 and by the time they play Dublin next year it will have been four years since they played in Ireland.In between these concerts have been loads more concerts at home and abroad and I think they were all just like yesterday although I am getting a bit old for the pit plus I need to go to the toilet more

Even older. My first Foo Fighters show was the UBC Student Rec Centre in Vancouver in '97. My second was in '98 when they did an afternoon set at Edgefest. 3rd was opening for RHCP in 2000. Sometimes it feels like yesterday, sometimes it feels like a really long time ago.

The hard one for me is I like frame and put up concert posters. The collection started with PJ posters when I saw they were selling them on the '98 tour. Now when I look at them it feels like a lifetime ago.

Mine was December 1997! I had a tour tshirt from then but at some point its disappeared somehow. Possibly gave it to charity or it was borrowed and never returned

April 30th 2003 Patriot Center in Northern Virginia, I won tickets to see them again in Montreal in July of that year--airfare and hotels
That got me hooked for good!!!

They were "my little band"

I've done the rail a fair amount of times, met people from all over the world because of them and now arthritis prevents me from going on the rail, for now.

I will get back up there again

I'm so old, I can't even remember my first Foo show, except it was on the first tour (so either '95 or '96)
