Went down with some non-Foo friends around 1pm today.

There was a reasonable queue which wasn't really moving and my philistine friends were more interested in drinking beer than waiting in the queue so we ended up heading down to Shoreditch. Booooo for non-foo friends.

Will have to see what merch I can get at the O2 on Tuesday.

I'm not sure if anybody has mentioned but once the pub reaches capacity it works on a one out/in basis and obviously it can take a while to get in, if people are sat drinking, so sometimes the queue doesn't move for like 20 minutes.

Thank you. I guess there will be a queue. I'll come straight from work.

I don't think I'll be getting much sleep this coming week 🙄

Fingers crossed they'll still have posters left on Tuesday!
I saw that you could order a BoB vinyl on the O2 app with a shirt to collect on the night of the show. Not sure if they have sold out yet.

Edit: it's available until 12pm of the 18th.

yeah. the Foofighters Arms is a great concept. I went late on Friday and the queue was only 20 mins and not full when I got in. Excellent merchandising outlet - the Foo's have always had good march and I usually find a trinket or two apart from adding to my closet full of concert T's and baseball caps. They had stopped selling stuff when I got there so just had a few LaDeeDa (craft IPA) pints and went home around 1am. It's also a great idea (don't know whose idea it was; the hipster pub manager or the foo management - but kudos to whoever) to get ready for the new tour and concert on Tuesday and what could be better than a pub playing non-stop Foo's and a big video screen with concerts. For those who don't know, Bethnal Green in East London is going through the kind of gentrification happening in American cities like Chicago (South Chicago - see Shameless - US version) and New York (Williamsburg - Brooklyn) so ideal for this type of 'authentic' rock theme bar.

There was always the unspoken wish that someone from the band would show up, especially for the special ones invited to the opening night - the Foos as we know were in Sweden that night. So the line up and anticipation was kind of manufactured, like waiting in line to get into the Hard Rock Cafe just to be served up the usual burger and fries but don't forget your brown T-shirt. Hard Rock Cafe {insert city name here}.

I want to go back for the Pub Quiz (a traditional event at English pubs) and possibly after the show on Tuesday which would be the most likely time for a Grohl appearance. Might need a 'lock in' as the pub closes at midnight. Wouldn't that be great! dream on 'til your dreams come true. ok Aerosmith but it doesn't have to be all Foos does it? It's the only thing i'll ever ask of you. is that better?

London loves the Foos and have always had the biggest crowds before they exploded into the greatest band in the world. Miss the early days and giving this new album a chance but the reviews have been mixed. You can certainly see he has been hanging with Macca and the LA lifestyle has certainly rubbed off on this highly produced outing. Still some good tracks but wonder if it all gels?
