I would also like to know the answer to this. Any special MK merchandise for sale? Not the regular shirts with all the cities listed on back.

Yes, 30! I was shocked.They are nice though, there are both men's & women's skinny fit available.One is green with the foo's bomb logo with wings on the front(if that makes sense? No women's sanitary wear jokes please!!) & says Milton Keynes & the two dates & it has that bomb & wing logo on the back (small logo at base of the neck of the shirt) the other shirt is green,I think, (I got the blue one) the big logo on the back small logo on the breast of the shirt.They also have a wasting light patch attached by a safety pin on the shirts as an extra.So make sure you have it attached to the shirt.

Awesome gig, the Foo's delivered again, a little disappointed nothing from the 1st album was played, but you can't have everything.

Crowd was ok, alot of idiots around, did not appreicate have a cup of urine thrown all over me, took the piss!

Also some woman crouching and having a wee in front of us, how respectable!

Thought 'Schools Out' with Alice Cooper was immense!

That's the 6th time i've seen them, they've gotten better and better each time!

The merchandise, as with all bands putting on a big show, was ridiculously over priced, i was more interested in the Foo Fighters carry bag the merchandise was in, managed to get my hands on one!

Got home at 3.40am, tired, but totally worth it!

Great show! I especially liked that version of Wheels. It's a song I never gave much thought to before; I liked it ok, but that was it. Something about Dave performing it by himself, though, made it feel much more haunting and powerful.

The only negative thing was getting out of the parking lot afterward, which was a fucking disaster.

When you go to gigs like this, you see that people really can't handle their drink.I had larger spilled down my legs & water down my back.Luckily no piss.I can't believe people go off & get burgers while the main band is on! Wtf? Why are you here? Can't it fucking wait until after the show? Mmm,would I rather watch the foo's or battle through crowds for 45 minutes & get a burger?!

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.
Sounds like they might hand out a few to people who queue up WAY early, but we didn't get ours at the gate.

We got there at 1pm yesterday, they let us in at 1:30pm, then we trotted (security were saying don't run) to the pit entrance and got in easy.... then when you want to leave the pit you get a wristband so you can come and go as you please all day. The queue for the pit wasn't that big at all until about 3-4pm maybe..?

It was weird though.... there was a massive queue for the pit in the late afternoon. but then someone here was saying they got in easily at 6pm? weirdness. just keep trying i reckon

but you're probably in now already so this may be a very pointless post indeed!

Also i thought it was a good novelty seeing Alice Cooper, but when they went into a 2nd song with him, i think i put on my 'spoilt little fanboy' hat and started thinking "They could be playing This Is A Call and I'll Stick Around now!!"

Other than that I've got no complaints at all. Seen them loads of times in crowds of 1000 to 80,000 and they still put on an awesome show...

If there were more bands that played live like the Foos, the world would be a better place. I felt sad listening to them in the car on the way home today.

Hey there were a few funny Dave Grohl-based t-shirts floating around too. Some 'Mrs Dave Grohl' ones (a bit scary) on a few girls.... one kid had a pic of Dave winking flirtatiously with "On a kiss" written above and "I thought I'd save my breath for you" written below... I have no idea why I liked that one lol!

Yeah, enjoy yourself, but do take into consideration that there are others around you! I had to lift about 10 people out yesterday, mostly unassisted.

And to the girl who kept trying to hold my hand when it was in the air, and then kept groping my face from behind when i pushed her hand off, that is not cool.
Was that the girl with the 'swishy' ponytail? Me and Sophie got separated in amongst the complete twats that kicked off......it was beyond stupid in some areas

That, and the fact the hotel fucked up and didn't have a room for us......then miraculously found one when I not so politely started kicking off put a slight damperner on the day but I still had a blast

Biffy were amazing and having Alice Cooper come on stage was fab!! Bob (aka DJ Dad as me and Soph nicknamed him due to his dancing!) did a great job between acts. Totally gutted I had to bring my boy and his mate home as would have loved to have done it again today.

Have fun those who are going!!!

Absolutely amazing last night, first time i've seen them live and it was great!

Wish I was going again today tbh. Although I was standing by a group of people that all had cocaine up there nostrils...

Alice Cooper was amazing too really didn't expect that!

Foos and Biffy Clyro were both amazing, But there were so many pricks in the crowd during Foos. So many people trying to start fights all the time and just being aggressive for no reason.

Seeing Alice Cooper was awesome though

I just have to say that yesterday was the most incredible day of my life!!!! I had the most awesome time! I took my little cousin and she'd never seen the Foo's before and loved it!

We parked up about 10am, got to the front of the queue, save a few people, where we got our GC bands, got in there about just after half one and got to the front of the circle on Pat's side.

I have to say the sunburn on my face and arms, my aching feet, my headache - all completely worth it! I wish I was going again today. I though Death Cab for Cutie were pretty good, and The Biff were great!

I loved it when the crowd kept 'OOOOOOHHHHING', and Dave laughed and told us to 'Shut the F**K up!'

Got home about 2am. Long, hot day, but I was completely over-whelmed and loved every second of it!

Thank you Foos!!!
