I'm going to be highly disappointed if it turns out they aren't a full headlining act and go on early and end early.

They are headlining Saturday. 2 hours is a long time for a festival.

a friend just went to buy a ticket/wristband for Saturday in person and they charged him $100. wtf. I'll have to buy mine in person if I go on Saturday and I have to pay for two tickets that will be like $200 - I want to cry! that is too much for me to afford these days. I'll have to see how things go.... boyfriend is out of work these days and that is a lot for me to swing. dammit!

crazy!

Knowing Dave reads the board or someone does judging from the Foo Vegas days, it would be pretty cool you guys would play Have It All and New Way Home again. Hundreds of fans would like that more than you think.

Alright, cool.

i bought mine a few weeks ago and with all the fees and everything it came out to about 99 bucks. which is insane and the most i've ever paid to see FF and it's slowly killing me inside

You guys are lucky, it costs us the equivalent of $160 for a Reading Festival day ticket.

And thanks Ali, It may have gone up or it was actually more than I thought.

Set time for Foo Fighters is 7:30 to 9:30 according to Bamboozle website. That leaves two hours to get to SNL, which is enough time. While I know NBC is crazy about getting everything set up early, the first song is usually around midnight so that leaves extra time for them. And on top of that, with Arcadia Fire also on SNL, I guess its possible they play the first song and Foo play the second.

Well I have to say I'm very excited for this show. Not only does it seem like a great venue to see the Foo Fighters but I'll have my daughter with me and this will be her very first concert. It's my birthday gift to her. She absolutely loves music and has become a huge fan of the Foo Fighters as well, so needless to say this is one show I'll remember for the rest of my life.

So if you guys see 9yr old girl rocking out with her old man please stop by and wish her a happy birthday!

By the way I bought my tickets from TicketMaster and was told they'd be mailed to me but thus far I've received nothing. Anyone else have this problem? My flight leaves early Saturday and I really don't want to be left stranded without tix

tons of people are having issues. it looks like one big clusterfuck with the wristbands. just bring your proof of purchase to will call and they will deal with it. It looks like a huge mess to be honest. i saw people complaining all over the bamboozle sit.

parking appears to be a nightmare as well. i dont want to park at the race track and take shuttle but that is what they are saying to do. i'll look for parking in asbury but it is very limited.

Awesome. So I get to stand in line with 20,000 other people at will call to pick up the tickets that I had to pay an extra $10 shipping to receive in the mail.

They better give me a free beer or something.

Show's gonna be great though

There are 9,700 parking spots and buses that fit 50 people at a time. (Not sure how many buses).

Compare to Giants Stadium that has 18,000 parking spaces.

Expect to wait to get there, to park, to get on the shuttle, to get your wristband.

PHILLY PEOPLE! How do you plan on getting there? Driving? Train? Bus? I'm wondering what method of transportation i should decide on since i don't own a personal helicopter.
