Even if you get here at 4, you still get in the pit

Granted, it would have been nice to have heard a couple of songs from the first album, but I have to say I thought the atmosphere was great and actually one of the best Foos gigs I've been to. Dave was on top form as a frontman, and I loved Alice Cooper's appearance, he's something of a cult hero for me.

The hits-centric setlist was to be expected really, so difficult to complain too much about that.

They toured the SHIT out of espg! Arenas are about as small as you'd expect them to play and they were fucking outstanding lastnight. Doesn't matter if they play to 650, 6500 or 65000 their performance is huge and engage the crowd no matter how big or small.

puzzling me how people are saying the crowd was dead etc. anyone who was in the pit the side of shiflett will tell you it wasnt :P standing in the sun still for 6hours sucked, but then biffy came and changed everything, the crowd was fucking immense from then on.
First 3 songs by the foo were brudge burning, rope and the pretender, safe to say i lost my shoe, sunglasses, half my shirt and my phone couldnt give a shit.
Seriously fuckin awesome night. 10/10

Now I'm confused. Do I need to get a wristband outside to get into the golden circle or can I just run like the wind when the gates open and get into the GC where I will be given a wristband if I want to leave and come back? Some posts are saying "I've got my pit wristband" others are saying "You don't need a pit wristband to get into the pit". Someone please clarify the situation for me. Cheers.

That sucks, but if you're worried about not getting in the pit me and Scott got there at 6pm, had a drink and chilled for a bit, then wandered around near the pit. They let us in and were still handing out wristbands until about 8ish. I guess most people didn't realise you could get in and just didn't try.
