Default Foo Fighters in Melbourne

The sound at Aami park can only be described as deplorable. For such a great band to be doing an outdoor gig in Melbourne is a horrible oversight. Don't ever play that venue again Foo Fighters!!! And it rained!

I had upper side view seating at the last tour in Rod Laver Arena and that sounded infinately better... Why? Because it was INDOOR...

I have been looking forward to this for so long. How disappointing

Sound was awesome from where I was. And you could hardly call that rain, specially in Melbourne.
Though stadium shows do suck. I never thought I'd prefer Rod Laver as a venue.

You know what else sucks? The term 'Foo Fighters'

I liked Aami Park - I was there on the first night. I thought the sound was fine in most parts and I was in the middle of the pit.

Travelled over 7 hrs to Melbourne to see the 2nd show. Sounded awesome from where we were sitting. What wasn't awesome was the red special effects on the two large screens which caused the guy sitting next to my wife to have an epileptic seizure. The ambo's got him into the medical room but the only person he would talk to was my wife, so she spent a good part of the concert helping them communicate with the guy and convince him to go to hospital. Should be a warning for this kind of thing..... Dave, Taylor, Nate, Chris and Pat, EXCELLENT WORK!!! PS. The name "Foo Fighters" does suck!

The big warning signs outside the gate weren't enough?

Have to say it all depends on where you were in there.
1st night I was just to the left of the B stage and it was good and loud.
2nd night I was up on level 3 seated with my 10yo son and it was nowhere near as loud as in the GA. He bought earmuffs just in case but they weren't needed. He's still buzzing 24 hrs later

Still rocked though!!!!!!!!!!

Whilst a smaller, enclosed venue would have been a lot better it really depends on where you place yourself. At the front of the mosh the sound was perfect.

Being so popular in Australia they would obviously be trying to cater for as many people as possible to see them, and I guess the only way to do that is in a stadium. Would you rather miss out altogether because you couldn't get tickets? I know I wouldn't. Considering this, I thought the venue was a great choice.

You won't make friends on here calling them the Foo Fighters. I found that out the hard way, and it now grates on me just as much.
