Great to meet new faces yesterday

Quite glad it shut at 10, could have been far worse! There would have been no glasses left for anyone else

I think i’m not alone I need thinking that Prince Harry and Meghan we’re going to appear! Fair do’s to James Corden for stopping and posing for all pics, etc.
Now looking forward to tomorrow night in Stratford!
I think a similar thing happened at the Kerrang Awards last night. I was tempted to pop up, as I felt pretty sure that the Foos would be there. I'm pretty glad I didn't in a way. These bogus autograph hunters are really annoying, and spoil it for the rest of us

What bugs me, is why do the band accommodate them? Its pretty obvious whos a fan and who isnt... (I think I'm still bitter ) Also, why dont security do anything? They know who's been waiting all day and then some big d@ckheads come lumbering in knowing the fans flying, and they didn't really do anything.

I was chatting to one of the security guys and he pointed to someone and said "watch that guy, he is an autograph hunter and when he moves you'll know the band are coming"

I guess these people become known om the circuit, so not an impossibility.

This wasnt one of the shovey guys though

One security guy said to us, you always know when someones about to turn up cos the autograph hunters come over. He said they didn't have any information on when the band were appearing, but I guess he would say that.

Still, that nice American lady was very sweet with you.

Yeah who knows. It only takes one person among the dozens hovering around the band/the venue to text the hounds. Or they're just THAT good that they have developed a sixth sense.

More likely the security guys just don't really care... it's not part of their job description, I guess.

Some celebrities get really annoyed at the hounds, but that's not Dave's style, in these situations he's nice to a fault.

It sucks for the genuine fans but in some ways the people in bands prefer to sign for the pros in a lot of these situations. The reason being, they know a lot of their faces, especially in places like LA and London. They're the same ones each time, so they know they're cool, despite also knowing they're planning to sell them. Fans on the other hand, are an unknown quantity. Whilst 99.9% are of course normal, regular fans, you just never know when that 0.1% turns up and does something crazy/harmful. They are always wary of that "fan", hence the need for security at all times.

Not saying they go out of their way to avoid the fans, obviously they don't, but if they can get through an unknown/uncontrolled crowd only having to deal with the pros, they'll not mind.

That's interesting, hadn't thought of that.

In Dave's case I think he also plays the long game - he keeps good relationships with the hounds and gives them what they want, so they'll leave him alone when it really matters (ie when his family is around).

But yeah, it all kinda sucks for the fans, doesn't it

One of the security guards said something similar. If they have what they want then they won't bother him later on when he's with his kids. Still sucks a bit for us but his main priority quite rightly will be his family.

And yes, the American lady was quite lovely

Stuff's up. I just "skimmed" thru them, it's almost like a deja vu, I'm pretty sure Dave had already burned the TSwift story on another Late Show?

Don't think he told the story on a talk show, but he did tell it at some accoustic show a while back. He was probably asked to come up with a McCartney story, and even he must only have a limited supply of those!

Yeah probably. It's the bad thing about being a superfan, whenever he comes with these super funny anecdotes I'm always rolling my eyes like "really dave, this story once again???? here we go with the OZ scooter prision story "


hahaha my bad.

The one with Lars Ulrich is a good one. Nice and long!

I was expecting to think the same but he was very pleasant when we met him. Maybe he was having a good day!
