Default Club Tour

I have one question for Mr. Davey Grohl. How do we all fit in the club? Only 1 out of 30 people of everyone who attends a Foo Fighters arena show can get in? I think its a big clusterf*&k . I'm asking for a Scavenger Hunt. Find the golden ticket and you win. 9:30 Club holds 1,200 and Electric Factory holds 2,800 .

You're assuming he was being serious (I highly doubt he was) but even if he was that's the whole point of club gigs (especially if they're done after the arena shows), they're exclusive and special, not for everyone. If you wanted to see them most people could at the arena, now if you want to see them again you have a chance of getting a ticket. Everyone should have an equal chance.

Oh they'll just do 30 nights in each city, with nobody being allowed to go twice (so you fuckers can't bitch about the setslists)

Duh


I'm curious to see what he'll say for the Boston show. The cool places they played in New England don't really exist anymore. Like they played Lupo's four times and then it closed and re-opened later, taking over the location of the old Strand Theatre (where they also played)


Avalon's long gone.

Somerville Theatre, Avalon, Palliadium, the venue that is in Foxbourgh, MA on the Gillette Stadium property. I think for the heck of it you play all the songs so no one bitches and you play the albums in order by tracking not from start to finish... but backwards. From the end to the beginning. No one would know that was coming.

Somerville Theatre isn't really a rock venue at all. Also, Avalon has been closed for years.

And the Palladium is freaking Worcester. Worcester doesn't count for shit.

And, as luck would have it, fucker ended up asking me to name a place.

I shrugged and shook my head.

Later, I got yelled at for that. Good times.

Can we officially say Dave was bulls$@ting us this past week. Dude I want to call him out. Yes I know he will make fun of me like he has done 2 times at Black Cat & 9:30. How can 20,000 people you tell at each arena show can fit in a club gig? None. Fire Hazard and it would be Great White Fire Re-revisted. Dave Grohl High Hopes Tour with special guests Hot Buns & Fresh Pots coming to a club near you.

I was expecting you to say the Middle East. Probably too small. Maybe the Paradise?
