Default 5 Shows in less than a year

My family of 4 will have seen the Foo Fighters 5 times in less than a year.
New Orleans, LA. Madison, WI. Florence, Italy. Chicago, IL and Milwaukee, WI.
What a blast it has been and will continue to be!

Nicely done! I love that it's a family event, and if you'll get up to show #5, it sounds like everyone's getting into it! Any highlights so far?

I KNOW RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best week ever. All my friends are mourning the lack of Glastonbury this year but I'd never get a line up like that at Glastonbury.
Yeah yeah its not about the line up, whatever! I'm seeing Foos three times!

Also seen Queens of the Stone age the week after. I'm very poor but happy!

It wasn't intentionally like this, Flight of the concords was rescheduled from April and Deftones was a late addition. I live in South East London and Pearl Jam and FOTC are at the O2 then Foos at Stratford, its just all so convenient Meant to be eh!

Fuck off you liar...

Now let's get REAL and discuss the number of shows we've been at this year where the band sing songs that directly name-drop us mid-sentence...

17 my ass - only actually twice now huh huh huh

+ Dave not remembering on stage the names of your shared children, which frankly... well no fuck him if he's that forgetful!

+ Yeti forcing you to A) eat cake against your will and B) Drink far too much alcohol against your (quiet sensibilities? Oh no right - mouth)

I'd find another band - this one is just way too full of fan abuse

You forgot the bit where Taylor left the bar then came running back practically hurdling the table to come give me a hug and a kiss

Or how he had to stay separately from the rest of the band.... and wore his Sunday best anti-butt-crack shorts!
