Quite random, what is it going to be? A proper show in a venue or a radio show/session or something?

I can predict quite a few of these 'intimate' shows around wthe world instead of the usual BIG money making machine rolling into town.

So who has the rest of the tickets?
Seriously, can people actually buy a ticket or are you only able to win one?

Dammit, it doesn't matter, because I'm not even going to be here. The one time they do an exclusive gig in Stockholm, and I'm gone on a trip. F*CK!

Thats a really bad time for a business trip...

Its no purchase on tickets meaning available only from the competition or some place else... Dont know all the details yet i only know about the gig.

I holding all my thumbs and really really hoping i win a ticket! If not im going to see them at Stockholm stadion in june anyway but it would be tons of fun to see them in a smaller venue!

This is so so tempting! If I could actually win a ticket that is...Do they even give them away to other Scandinavians?
I don't think I'll be able to make it happen though...Would have to be an afternoon flight.

Exactly! And it's a conference in New Zealand, so that's not really the kind of trip you can "avboka eller boka om".
It sucks being a responsible adult sometimes, but at least the trip is in a cool place. It would really suck if I had to be in some shit hole somewhere

Anyway, I hope some of you FFPB folks can be there to represent us. Good Luck!

That sucks since the gig is in Stockhom and everything.

Conference doesn't exactly sound like a bad reason to miss it for though Do you get some time to look around or do they literally just fly you in for the conference and back again straight after?

It's 30 hours of travel, so I leave on Thursday and arrive in Auckland on Saturday morning. The conference starts on Monday, so I have the weekend to myself. I already have an eco hike planned on Sunday. I've been to Auckland before (20 years ago ), so I've seen the tourist stuff. The eco hike is more off the beaten path. Looking forward to it.

Although I'm missing the Foo, I'll see them in June for the big gig here, and then I'm planning to attend Lollapalooza in Chicago in August to see Foo and Muse It's just a pity to miss seeing Foo in a small venue.

Wow, that sounds great NZ is definitely one of those places I would really like to visit.The eco hike sounds great! Sounds like a good opportunity to see something a bit different

Lollapalooza must be awesome! Muse and Foo at one festival sounds pretty good to me Chicago is actually one of the next places in the US I really want to go to. Don't know why, it's just one of those places that facinates me.

Dont know but it is worth a try atleast! If you are in Norway It goes trains regulary to Stöckhölm so you could take the train... If they are on time It has been a snowstorm in Sweden so there is heavy delays in the traintraffic and Stöckhölm Airport Arlanda have problems with getting all flights out, and the traffic report have new messages about accidents every halfhour or so... But it should be spring weather in the next few weeks (I hope)

They have a webcast of Bandit Rock but i dont know if it works outside sweden... http://bandit.se/

Listening to their radio show now, trying to get some info on this.

Hoping they'll show up over here as well, but will be hard getting in to these shows if they do it the way they've done in LA. It'll take at least two hours getting to Oslo on short notice.

I know... I have about 2-3 hours to Oslo and about 3-4 to Stöckhölm depending on traffic...
