Once we drove from Texas to California (1,726 miles). I've flown from Texas to Vegas, New Orleans and to Mexico City, driven to Austin (about an hour away), Dallas (six hour drive). This spring we'll drive from San Antonio to Austin, then Houston and on to Dallas, with Louisiana potentially still on the table.

I'd love to see them inn Europe someday.

Whatever the distance, it's worth it.

I have seen the Foo Fighters 6 times in 5 different venues. I drove an hour (with traffic) twice to see them at the Forum and 90 minutes to see them at the Honda Center in 2015. These are the most convenient locations they have played however this tour they have nothing in their own hometown LA. I drove 2 hours to Cal Jam and then saw them in Greensboro, NC (5 hr flight + 90 minute drive) and Eugene, OR (1 hr flight + 2 hr drive) while I was visiting colleges in the area, so I don't really have a general travel time.

Usually an hour and a half, either Edmonton or Calgary. I'm lucky they're playing both cities next September, so we're going to see them twice in a week.

In December we drove 10 hours to see them in Billings, MT though.

When I lived in NC, the closest they ever came was two hours away.

Of course, I move back to Minneapolis and then they skip the big cities for the tour and, for the first time, visit the city I just moved from (one block from where I lived).
