Does anyone knows if the 2011-2012 tour will go through Central America (Guatemala) or Mexico? It will be great if they do

According to Nate Mexico City is an OFFICIAL GO (A mexican fan personally asked him when he bumped into him @ Lollapalooza), HOWEVER nothing has been announced.

[SPECULATION]
There was also a very fake poster circulating with an April 14 Guadalajara date. That date was initially "leaked from a good source, according to a Mx music blog (Lifeboxset.com).

If they were to come to Mexico, they would probably do it right after Brazil (Apr 8) BUT before Bamboozle (May6), which gives you a 20-ish day stretch.

I'm still positive on the "mexico's-must-tour-cities": Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey but... arghhh who knows.
[/SPECULATION]

Keeping the faith!

It just seems right that they would hit tx around jazzfest - and am not taking advantage of basically free jazzfest tix on my gut. They surely won't want to come to tx any later - too stinking hot.

Dave doesn't direct answer questions on the board.

I would anticipate it's based on the number of downloads and information from the Record company about sales that might determine the number of venues or nights they perform a show.

Demographics, population and fans.

I know... SO weird they totally ignored TX.
In 20 days they could easily pull 3 MX dates and 3 TX dates, we're too close.

With how much advance time do you think they have to announce their dates? I haven't thought through that factor, maybe it's already too late But 2 months and a half sound decent to announce a big concert. Anyone?

Remember it's all about logistics and what the band can do. Just because to our eyes it looks like they're 'free' for a month after the Brazil show it doesn't mean they can logistically just add Mexican and deep south shows in that time. It's all about what promoters want and the slots they have available, what other commitments the band have we don't know about and other legal restrictions we also don't know about.

I'm not saying there won't be shows in that space, I have no information you don't, just wanting to point out everything isn't as simple as it might seem to us.

I also do agree it would be very odd for them to not play TX and surrounding areas for this album. If not April then I'm sure later in the year.

Thumbs down Re: Foo Fighters 2011 - 2012 Tour Dates

I havent missed a tour since 1997. I was not huge fan with the 1st cd until later. I seen some tours multiple times. Aside from the garage show, I cannot believe they did not do any Texas dates especially Dallas. I am heartbroken to not get to see the Wasting Light Tour live. Having a kiddo now, I could not afford to travel. I think they played Ok City and hindsight wish I had gone.

97 -Bronco Bowl Dallas
98 - Buzzfest Houston
99 - Philly Christmas Show
2000 - Ok City
2000 -Dallas Starplex
2003 - Dallas Fair Park auditorium
2005 - Dallas Starplex
2008 - Dallas AAC

In Europe it depends for a big part on the record company if bands have a show in a country or not. That's why there are always a lot of big shows in Germany and Holland. For a big part, that has to do with sales of course, but bigger countries like Spain for instance have less artists come over for a show. From what I've heard.

I just hope for news of the band coming to Europe, but what I can read here is that everybody's doing the same thing for their state/country. Wanna see them live!
