Smile Joining fan club

Hello all,
Totally new here. Big fan from day one first album. I live in Austin Texas.
I'm curious how to join the official Foo Fighters Fan Club. I've signed up for the newsletter here, and also joined the postboard, obviously. But I'm not sure if that makes me an official fan club members.

I joined a FF fan club through a site called seatwish, but somehow I think that's not official, and just a way to buy and sell tickets. Anyone have any info for me on this? I don't see anything other than a newsletter sign up on the website.
thx yall!

There is no official fan club. This board and the newsletter is about as close as you'll get, so you're set.

You're correct, what seatwish are offering is not an official fan club, just a function on their website.

Welcome to the board!

Thx! Good to know.
I bought tix today for the Austin show through Capitol One pre-sale, and noticed a 'Foo Fighters mailing list' in the toolbar, with presale happening on Monday, and thought to myself, "Why am I not on a mailing list for one of my favorite bands?" so, I was just curious if that was a mailing list or fan club through the website.

Thx again for the info.

They have an official @foofighters twitter account

and

https://www.facebook.com/foofighters/ an official facebook page


pretty much anything else besides those that this website are not backed by the band.


was that okay Simon?

Fine.

It's also worth specifically pointing out, Dave Grohl does not have ANY public social media accounts. Any you see on twitter, Facebook, instagram etc claiming to be him are fakers.

Yea I knew that for sure. It's obvious when you look at the posts.

But what I do like is the twitter account @taylorhawkinshair. I'm not certain but I think it's someone in the band. Making fun of Taylor's hair, in a lighthearted way.

isn't it Gus who posts on taylorhawkinshair? I think it was revealed at some point, it'd make sense since he does the live feeds of shows on their official instagram account, I know because I was watching one and he accidentally opened the front camera

Taylor discussed in an interview that he just takes/poses for the photos while Gus does the posting. Gus also made a booboo and revealed the arrangement when he posted a selfie to hawkinshair.

So, FF coming to town in October. Tickets go on sale this Friday, but there is a pre-sale Thursday for members for Fan Club.. What would I need to get on that pre-sale if there is no official fan club?

You need to sign up to the mailing list:

Mailing list sign up

Unfortunately if you have not already signed up I think you will be too late to get the code for tomorrows pre-sale (I might be wrong) but its worth signing up now so you know you will get codes in the future.

Ahhhh yes I had the same question. I couldn't figure out where these presale codes were coming from and it just occurred to me today, I don't actually get emails from FF. I snoozed. I lost. Luckily I will be happy with standing room only tix.
