Guess they have Clowns opening for them in the Australia shows,

Would like to see them outside Australia as well, and while Clowns are great I'd REALLY like to see Press Club as an opening act.

Royal Blood was opening for them 2,5 years ago, when I saw them in Calgary. Awesome show by a fantastic band, I'd love to see them again,

Greta Van Fleet would be cool too, but I have the feeling they're not up there yet. Can't wait to find out who will be the opening act for the Canadian / western States part of the tour next summer.

I seriously hope Highly Suspect will be an opening act. They are fantastic and I could have seen them live, but due to schedule limits, I couldn't. They are/were Grammy nominated and have a fair amount of recognition, so I think they could be opening acts. They are in a similar yet totally different vein as Royal Blood and sound QOTSA influenced occasionally, so why not? #MCID

I'd be okay with Highly Suspect.

I'm not really a fan, but I do like their sound.

Maybe a live show would get me listening to more of them.

I'm always looking for new bands to follow.

Highly Suspect crush it live. Very good stuff. I cannot wait to see them again in a small venue.

If you want a crazy good up and coming band to listen to,check out Badflower. They are my favorite new band. So good live.

Look for songs like Herion,Drop Dead,Soap and this one https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ax7DO0g_Cv8

Yeah, I'll see them live next time they come around. They will, trust me. They're originally from Mass and I live in Mass, so they'll definitely come back. But yeah, I love Badflower. Great stuff, found out about them a while ago.

The Struts are not playing in Billings tonight, we're getting Bob Mould instead. I'm a bit disappointed, I was looking forward to seeing and hearing the Struts.

So that's another guess for me. We could possibly get Bob Mould. I'd be fine with that because I like Hüsker Dü.

Eh, I was hoping for someone else. I've seen them a few times and they're great for one show. But the gimmick gets old quick.

Because of the pattern, I can probably expect The Struts to open for them when I see Foo Fighters at Fenway. I love The Struts and I would kill to see them with the Foos.

Love The Struts - happy to see them again. They have just finished recording their new album so they will be playing some of those tracks on the next leg of the foo tour.

They are really nice lads and they seem to get on so well with the foo boys.
