That's just plain rediculous.
Yes it was sold out in 30 minutes without even 1 band being confirmed for the line up.. so almost nobody could get a ticket.. And indeed, even IF you could buy a ticket, it would be too much of a risk to buy a ticket of 200 euros if the Foos weren't even coming... I really really hope the Foos will do another show here!

Pukkelpop is not on sale yet, right?
For Pukkelpop: more ticket info will be announced in a couple of weeks

If you look at all of their 2012 shows so far they're all festivals or big shows. Big $$ shows for them. I mean I don't know any more than you do but it seems to me that is the only sort of show they'll be playing this year.

yeah, bummer. That's what I thought. I could do a sold out stadium tour in Europe on their own, but I won't see that happening this year.

yeah I have the idea it's not going to happen aswell, but still.. did I already say that I think it's ridiculous? For months I've been saying 'Foos please come and do a show in Holland!'.. Well now they are doing it, but almost no Foo people can go.. Next time I'll say 'Please Foos come to Holland and do a show that isn't sold out before you announce it!'

Now I can't see them at Lowlands or Pukkelpop, I hope they will do a show in Spain (or the south of France) during our vacation!

Lowlands 2005 was only 2 months after IYH was released and the HMH gig 7 months after though. This time Lowlands is 16 months after Wasting Light.

you're not considering going to Pukkelpop now you know the chances are you won't be able to see the FF play in Holland (a show that has tickets available) this year?

If they don't do any other show in Holland, I'll probably go to Pukkelpop.. Have you read everywhere how many Dutchies are planning to do the same? I wonder how fast these tickets are going to sell.. Belgian, Dutch and I guess German FF fans are going to buy these saturday tickets..

But on the internet we've been looking around what kind of festivals there are before Pukkelpop.. The only big one I could find was Sziget festival. Last day of that festival is August 13th. They've played the Frequency festival last year, so I guess they won't be doing that one this year. I spot a gap between the 13th-18th of August. Why not a fun show in the HMH, Ahoy, Ziggodome, Melkweg, Paradiso or another venue? I see enough gaps for that in the schedules of the venues

I totally splurged to get VIP to be in the front for this show as well. My sister has never been so I also got her a ticket - I'm SUPER pumped. I'm wondering if there is any chance they would do a smaller show at one of the other venues in the evening? Like a secret show similar to when they played the Metro in Chicago the day before the headlined Lollapalooza...?

If anyone hears anything let me know - I can't wait to see them, but I would love it if I could get a 3 hr set somewhere else! 2 hrs is never enough!!

I hope it's not a ticket rush like for Tomorrowland! Anyway, according to the Foo Fighters website, the ticket sale starts on April 30. It's probably the right date, but I'm not sure - I don't think they are supposed to publish the date as it's not on the Pukkelpop site yet...

I havent been to a FF show yet, I am so looking forward to seeing them live soon. But I guess they're only doing festivals. Seems like I need to go there.

Since I haven't met anybody at a show yet, and my friends are busy with babies or not into this kind of music, I am looking for some people that are going to pukkelpop and who I can join.

I understand if you don't want to go with somebody you don't know yet, but there's still time to introduce myself!

Well, hope to meet some of you soon.

That's what I was HOPING too! We'll be in New Orleans from Thurs to Sunday! A show somewhere on Bourbon St. would be so SWEEEEEET! Hell...to just 'run' into them somewhere would make my trip much better! HAHAH! Yeah....2 hours of Foo just ain't enough...I totally agree!

Does anyone know if they are playing somewhere in USA on next August?? I know that in the end, they'll be at Belgium and UK, but I was hoping that they would do some gig in the beggining...
Or any chance on Lollapalooza...?

Zero chance for back to back Lolla. Especially since it seems that the headliners have been leaked for a while now. My fingers were crossed for Bonnaroo, but the idiots didn't feel like getting the Foo Fighters, instead they went for RHCP which was stupid. Oh well, it's still going to be awesome.
