Default Please Tour Hong Kong

Foo Fighters - there are loads of Australian New Zealand and US expats in Hong Kong who are dying for you to tour ASIA...

Could you not do a few shows in Hong Kong during your tour down under????

Think about it!

A friday or Saturday show would be AWESOME!

I'd be good with that too! I would make sure I had an extra day on the business trip if they do. I'm there every other month. What venue would it be at?

I was really thinking about going to NZ for Chinese New Years to catch both of their shows but flights now are waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy tooo expensive.

So yes, a Hong Kong show would be great.

They are playing Japan in Japan and South Korea in late July. Maybe a HK show will be added.

Sadly, won't be in HK then.

They don't play in Zurich, they will play in St.Gallen (about 100 km to the east), at the border to Austria.
Tickets will be 108.50 sfr(standing area) and are still available.

No idea, i guess around 18 (i see in the last years the main headline have around 2 hours, so it is not bad.. Of course i prefer a Foo Fighters show than a festival , but is the only choice to see them near here i think (almost 4 hours by plane). If later they go to Hog Kong perfect! I am living in Macau.

I bought the tickets one month ago, with an Early Bird Ticket Promo (almost half price).

You should check their facebook because soon will announce other Early bird price.

https://www.facebook.com/valleyrockfestival?fref=ts

The web for buy the tickets is this: http://ticket.interpark.com/Global/P...TabNum=1&Kind=

I bought the 3 day ticket, even i will only go 1 day, because the one day ticket will sell in June or July, and the price will be similar than the 3 day ticket in the Early bird promo.

About the 2 hour i saw something from the 2013, but i am not sure, maybe ask them, i see the headliners play between 90 and 120 minutes that year.

Hope it helps!

I was really hoping that when I moved to HK there would be more concerts. Sadly, not too many bands come here.

Luckily when I go back to Canada, this summer, I will get to see them again.

Bottom line, HK needs more concerts.

What are record sales like over there? I imagine that is the biggest influence in where they go and if they're not selling a huge number of records in HK they'll decide the demand isn't really there, I guess.

The biggest reason, I hear, is because everything is so expensive. Like to get a concert staged and set up?

Usually bands skip here and go to places like Manila or Singapore instead. Even with both being smaller cities and Singapore being strict on things like not swearing during shows.
