My Reading Wedding is going ahead at the registry office and we'll be using the festival as a kind of honeymoon. I lost my Dad suddenly last weekend but im glad both him & my mum were the only people that knew about our plans and thought the idea of us using the festival as a honeymoon was a good idea, dont feel like making anymore plans for it at the moment, but my dad was happy for us and would want us to go ahead
Thanks to everyone that gave their advice, hints & tips.

First I have to say that I am so very sorry about your dad!
I'm glad that your getting married though and celebrating honeymoon to the Foos live sounds just fantastic. Is your bride to be just as in to the Foos as you are? I would love to have a partner that digs them Have a lot of fun!

Less than 3 days until the Foos are on stage at Leeds, cannot wait!
I heard they were supposed to be doing something special, a different set or something to normal, has anyone else heard anything about that?

Awesome!

I haven't heard anything about that (I've been assuming it'll just be the regular festival set they've been doing for the last few days - no 'special' songs).

Where did you hear that?

Also, SO FUCKING EXCITED!!!

The special nature of it is that they will be playing for THREE HOURS at Reading. It's well known the band adore Reading Festival, and this could be the performance that defines the band. Tune in, Sunday night, BBC3 and red button.

For what it's worth, I will be at Leeds, where they are 'only' playing for 2 and a half hours.
