Default Blackpool TCV show - 13/12/09 - Ethan.

Hey Guys,

What can i say other than a massive thanks for last night - Dave went above and beyond what he had to do for us last night and i am really appreciative and thankful.
The general plan with any touring band for me is to get tickets for one of the shows for my whole family and then, once the kids have seen the band (17yrs and 10yrs) , i can get another show in myself.
Well we got to Blackpool nice and early and once inside (at the barrier) i went and spoke to 2 head security guys to ask if it got too bouncy at the front wether i could jump out with my youngest (Ethan is 10yrs old) and get to the disabled viewing area at the back. Both security guys told me this would be fine and they explained whereabouts they would be if i needed them.
So SWEETHEAD played and it was fine, i had 2 hands on the rail so i was making a "Dirty Dancing Patrick Swayze" style arc for Ethan to stand in and he was enjoying it.
Then when Dave came out (first) he looked along the line and gave Ethan a massive wave and a thumbs up which, to be honest, made his night.
They opened up with "No one loves me" and it got a bit squashy but i was still able to keep my arc for the little fella, straight into "Dead end friends" and we were doin OK.
Now i was probably gonna give it about 2 more songs and dip out, because although Ethan had his own little bit of dance space, my arms were aching and i couldnt see myself holding out for another 90 mins, but then one of the most decent drummers in the world stepped forward and did something which he didn't have to do.
Ethan got a shout to get up onto stage and 'we' watched the show from the edge of Dave's riser.
Dave was chatting to him inbetween songs and he made my youngest feel like he was the only person in the venue and for this i can't thank him enough.
My only problem now is that it's xmas in 2 weeks and how on earth do i top that!!!!!!!!!!
Once again, Dave and everyone else involved, thank you so much - it was hugely appreciated.

Stu.

As I write this and check out the date I see that this comes exactly 4 years to the day of both my kids first Foo Fighters show - In Your Honour tour - 14th Dec 2005 at manchester MEN arena - they both sang their hearts out to every single word and they still have their ticket stubs.

Listening to the radio this morning and they were talking about TCV in Blackpool and guess who got a mention?! By the sounds of it, people were rather jealous but thought it was an awesome thing for Dave to do.

Any footage on YT do you think?

Hi Stu,

We went to blackpool and thought what dave did was absolutely amazing really was you could see how much Ethan enjoyed it. He'll probably end up on loads of youtube vids and fan pics. Can't wait for Hammersmith now

So thrilled for Ethan (and you )! What a first-rate thing for Dave to do! Once pictures start to surface, please post!

And you're right.....there's no way you'll be able to top this! You know, Dave probably enjoyed it as much as you guys did. He was a kid with a band fetish once too!

Don't worry about topping it. Think of the Fathers Day presents you'll be getting in a few years!

Friend of mine tweeted/twittered/(whatever the fuck the verb is) about this, from Australia. Made my week. And I found this on youtube - seems that there's a drummer pointing at someone near the front right at the end. Hope someone caught the aftermath.....
