Question What time do they take the stage (US tour)?

Looking for some perspective from those who have been to a gig on this tour.

The Mountain View show this Wed has a 7p start on the tickets. I'll be driving from San Francisco, and I know work and traffic will result in me sadly missing most of Gary Clark, Jr.

I see previous gigs also started at 7p, does anyone remember when the Foo Fighters took the stage?

Appreciate the perspective. Cheers.

I was at the show at the Gorge this past Saturday. First off Gary Clark, jr. was amazing. Secondly, the band made their amazing entrance at about 8:30. They finished up just shy of 11:30. It was epic.

was Gary Clark Special guest or opener ?

I ask myself how it will be at the Euro Tour with GC Jr. and orleanes Avenue. Will they Play as an opening band or will they jam with the foos ?

At the ACL Festival (Austin TX) it's gonna be Billy Idol at 4PM, Tame Impala at 6PM, and the Foos come on at 8PM. I'm trying to decide how early to get there and get in a good position to see the Foos. Not really into the other bands at this festival, but I don't want to stand in the back because I got there too late either.

I'm 52 and it's not as fun standing for 4-5 hours just to see the band you came to see like it was back in the day.

I saw Trombone shorty at the DC show. He blew me away! He did play with his own band, not with the foos, but for a mostly instrumental set, he kicked ass!
