Great gig. It was awesome to see Foos in such a small venue. Was about 4 people from the barrier near the middle, but had to get out after about 4 songs, some complete bastards pushed right into me and squashed me until I couldn't breathe, despite me telling them to stop!!
Anyway, didn't let that spoil my night. Got out to the side and met Seasick Steve! He's a lovely guy. I managed to get to the barrier right at the side and Dave ran right up to it during Stacked Actors, I was screaming like a crazy woman
Hope everyone else enjoyed the show!

Ha ha! I'm going to have to look out for that on ITV2. I wonder if they're allowing re-playing of the show on iTunes?

Yep, that was me Wish I'd worn a better shirt now instead of whatever I had kicking about.

A few more snaps up. More later.

I'm on such a freakin' Foo high right now!! That and my triple-espresso Americano are all that's keeping me going at work right now as I only managed 3.5 hours sleep last night, after only 5 the night before!

Lol! When did you guys make it home?? Sorry to all for dashing straight after the show, didn't realise how late it was so my mate and I just ran for it, literally! Ran all the way to Camden!

Great to see you all though - even you Epic, what's your name again??

And great to see Scotty & Bex at the end, great that you guys made it in.

I'm still floating on a high from this. I have bruises all over me and at the end my shirt was soaked through like I'd done a workout or something - haven't had that at a gig for years as these days I tend to hang back a bit! My friend and I were about 2 back from the barrier in front of Pat.

I've run out of superlatives to describe the show but jesus, it was up there with my best gigs ever. From my signature you can see I've seen a few Foo shows but 2 and 3/4 hours in a sweaty club was what I wanted and more. When lemmy came on it was like heaven for me, I only have 2 bands tattooed on me - Foos and Motorhead. The guy is a rock and roll charicature but what a fucking presence.

I have 4 people from the board say hello to me, recognised my tattoo, but I'm shit with names and whatever so hello back whoever you all were!

Was great to meet Shifty before the show too, what a lovely guy he is.

Anyway I need to get on with some work (if I ever get to come down) but I'll be back later with a few more reflections as it sinks in.

What a night. I have a foot long bruise up my side that I have no idea where it came from, my ears are still ringing and I've had next to no sleep, but wow - I wouldn't change anything. That was undoubtably the best Foo's gig I've ever seen, up there with the best I've seen of any band!

I didn't get this work at all and I did not have the patience to try all the little things just to make some piece of software work. Seems to have been a good show though. I hope this comes available in HD at some point.

Being a massive foo fighters fan i missed wembley and felt crap for days for doing that so i made a promise to myself not to miss any other dates, after going to MK on both days, getting there at 10:00am each day just to get gold circle i was not going to miss Itunes.
So I'm one of the guys who bought tickets of eBay for a hell of a lot of money the night before the show, got the tickets through and they had a 80 year old mans name on, (who was also a character played by Ronnie Corbett!) i wasn't going to defeated and i did everything i could and got in no problem it was one of the best days of my life.
Just proves if you want something bad enough, do everything you can to get it.

I thought the crowd yesterday were really good, my girlfriend thought it was great, it wasn't to rough everyone was really friendly and we were just right of the middle about 5 people from the front.

As a random guy on the train said to me you live for a good time not a long time.

We got back to warrington about 5:30 after a pretty hellish journey thanks to road closures on the M6. Kate dropped me off at the station, I caught first train and just headed straight to work. Gonna just collapse when I get in this evening.

I regret nothing though, great gig and great to see everyone.

I would of watched it on my iPhone, but it kept cutting out!

If anyone knows of a download, I'd be really grateful! I'd like to compile a few recent shows to keep.
