Definitely more shows to come and the wording of this hints at more items going out in the mail like Cheese and Grain.

So I'm confused... being a part of the old e-mail list doesn't involve pre-sales anymore then, right? You either have to pre-order the album online for first choice or become a Verified Fan for the second choice, right?

Edit: And where's the pre-order page again? Or the Verified Fan sign-up thing. Can't find it on the official website anywhere.

Edit 2: Never mind, got them now.

Pre-odered and got my confirmation to be in the 1st round of pre sales for my show. I Love the Foo. They treat their fans like they appreciate them, unlike the Guns N Roses fan club.

So this verified fan thing is just for the currently announced shows, right? I'll definitely have to wait for the second NA leg before I consider getting tickets. If I just preorder the album, do you think there will still be access to the potential "surprises?"

So how is everyone handling the album pre-sale if there isn't a concert close to you. Are you choosing to get Verified now and select the concert closest to your home town? Or are you just pre-ordering the album and hoping that they will do something like this for other cities that are added later on?

Just thought I'd see what everyone is doing before committing to one option or the other.

I ended up pre-ordering and picking Lexington. I didn't read close enough to see that there might be benefits to waiting. They'd likely have GA floor here(if they announce a show), so I won't be too worried about getting good tickets.

I think I like the Ticketmaster verify thing, at least right now I do. Last time I waited for almost 5 hrs outside the venue to get ga tickets to help fight the bots. It was totally worth it, but if I can score ga tickets with a pre-sale code this time it would be even cooler lol.

Yeah I'm in the same boat as I'm sure Minneapolis/St. Paul will be added at some point in another leg of the tour, but I wouldn't mind going to Des Moines or Madison if need be. Decisions, Decisions...

Those two and Sioux Falls are about the same distance from me (less than four hours or so). And Sioux Falls is actually on a Saturday, which might be more convenient for work purposes. But I'm tempted by the other two since I haven't seen shows there in awhile and that's where some family or friends are located, if need be.

I just registered for the Madison pre-sale, but am thinking it over until tomorrow probably... hoping the Twin Cities thing will resolve itself on a future leg announcement!

I'm looking for New England dates and, hopefully, Canadian ones.

I just discovered these guys. So embarrassing

Pre-ordered and live in Denver. Chose the Casper, WY show which is about 3 hours 45 minutes away. It will be worth the drive if I score good tix!

Got second row when they were here with the Beat The Bots thing. Stood in line for six hours. Totally worth it.

The FF Facebook page just announced a presale for capital one cardholders at the same time as the presale for anyone who preordered the album. Seems like an odd move in a day and age when album sales (for anyone) are generally low.

I preordered a bundle but didn't get a notice for the first group. I'm wondering is I did something wrong. Maybe I didn't purchase through the right link. Crap.

Eh? Just? They finished about 45 minutes ago and only 'Run' and 'La Dee Da' were played from what I can see.
