I'm still thinking UK / Europe tour Summer 2018. I have a feeling they may play Wembley again, maybe Reading....maybe a Foo holiday in Europe 😉

I'm hoping i can do a euro show again. I would be shocked if they didn't do Wembley or the Olympic stadium.

Wonder if you'll still have the stress of an extra little gig announced later, that Town Hall show they still need to make up.

Clowns? Amy and the Sniffers?

Judging by the local support acts all the good band names have been taken.

Just heard the announcement! Can't fucking wait! Better get annual leave and flights sorted, flying up from Dunedins a bitch. Fan club presale or just frontier touring at the moment?

Clowns are awesome but they don't fit. They're a hardcore band and your average foo fan is gonna hate it.

Amyl is from Melbourne too but Adelaide has some awesome talent so I'm disappointed they didn't choose someone local..

D & T are taking over Max TV next Friday: https://www.maxtv.com.au/shows/foo-f...M2m2o.facebook

Plus the channel's making a band-related super duper announcement of amazement and wonder tomorrow at 9am.

MAX TV is giving away five tickets to the Aussie shows before they're on sale to the public, which I assume means one for each state. Run, don't walk. (Heh, now that works as an all-round lyric joke.)

Auckland Town Hall is already booked by another band (The Stranglers from the UK) on Friday February 2, so it won't be the night before the Mt Smart Stadium gig, unless they go to another venue.

Hmmm.... I have a hotel booked for Friday and Saturday nights... what to do, what to do?? Plus didn't Dave say they would play a free gig in Christchurch when they were there? Maybe Auckland will miss out...

Pretty sure Reading is locked - it's the reason why they are only playing the O2 here in London because Reading usually has restrictions on big London stadium gigs for their headliners...

Nah, they're playing the 02 because they happen to be having a celebration of 10 years and it coincides with their promo run in for the album. They played Wembley Arena in 2011 for the same reason, the NME Big Gig and Awards tied into promo for the album.

They wouldn't forfeit big summer shows in London next year just to play Reading again.

Possibly - but Reading tends to book the "rock" headliner of Glastonbury for the year later...Muse, Metallica...

You mean the year after a new album comes out? Maybe, but since the album is coming out after the festival this year wouldn't that make 2019 more likely? 2018 would still be the first year, technically.

I just can't see them not doing their usual batch of stadium/big shows next summer, including London. Especially since they had to cancel them in 2015.

No the year after each Glastonbury the Rock Headliner will play Reading...

Kasabian, Muse, Metallica, Arctic Monkeys have all played Reading the year after Headlining Glasto.. Foos is a natural logical next step amongst that group...
