My guess would be these are "payday" festival appearances to make sure the tour crew are covered whilst they aren't touring for most of the year and onwards into their usual "hiatus". They've done this in the past years, either taking high paying festival offers or private/special booking shows. Like those in NOLA, FF have clearly been paid handsomely for those, going by the ticket prices.

As such, I personally wouldn't expect any big Foo headline shows announced, but you never know of course. I guess small warmups aren't out of the question.

Also for these twin festivals specifically, they were presumably outbid by Rock Am/Im this year.

A UK exclusive at download would work with this theory I assume?

It would, yes. Basically only doing gigs where there is no big up-front cost to them, just a big ass fee to turn up and play a festival or show.

Just a guess though, I should stress.

Interesting. And very pricy.

I am going to wait patiently and see what next year has to offer before rushing into anything AGAIN. I think I can do it.

We've already priced up flights (airmiles plus £35) and are mid discussion about if we're physically capable of two festivals in a week (probably).

Damn it Foos, I didn't think I'd be having to worry about this again for at least another year :P

Download sounds like a logical possibility, though I'd always prefer their own gigs.

How does Download work? Is it tickets on sale after bands are announced or one of those ones you have to buy the tickets and hope for the best?

Let's hope they aren't invited back. Don't fancy being slapped/spat at/having to drink water with spit in.

Well... these German shows seemed a surprise...

You'd think there would be UK festivals, I mean Download, Reading, IOW, TRNSMT, BST, are all likely candidates for the UK. Though if you're strictly looking at payday's the Foo's headline shows will always blow any UK festival fees right out of the water..

I think shows like TRNSMT and BST are almost headline shows anyway, they aren't real festivals in the traditonal sense, with generally a couple of stages.

IOW ticket prices are pretty cheap for a Foo show, it'd be cool if they'd play Reading, next year would be 7 years since they last played.. and I cannot believe that myself.. seven years.. when did that happen.

BST would be great and a decent payday, in July though (?) so might not fit the schedule

Foo headline shows have upfront costs that take a while to recover though, hiring the stages, stage hands, one off staff, advertising, logistics etc etc. Festivals are far simpler, they just have to turn up with their gear, a bit of a stage setup, and play.

They do early bird tickets where you have to hope for the best, but that's only probably 20% of the tickets. The rest go on sale after they start announcing. From experience, it has never sold out quickly.

They do day tickets which is easier than having to buy for the whole festival. For download Paris I got two day tickets but it would have worked out cheaper to buy an early bird one.

Reading would suit me better as we get guest tickets
