Anyone heard anything about rescheduling the Minneapolis date?? I need closure. I need to move on with my life. The teeny chance that I might be the winner is holding me back

Its not a myth. I know people who have actually done it. Trust me, I live in Ohio where the cows out number the people lol

I found it particularly hilarious as I grew up in a "more rural" area of the Puget Sound region where the running joke was that we went out cow tipping for fun after the high school football games. Cracked me up to hear about it from Dave in Texas.

There were cow pastures next to my house growing up, which of course, are now housing developments...gotta love urban expansion.

LOL! Tell me about it. I saw a video on youtube from the Dallas gig and Taylor was saying they went to Denton to his old house. I live in Denton! I'm so sad they were that close and I still missed them!

Yeah. I had found the video by accident by just browsing youtube. It was under like taylor hawkins/foofighters/denton or something and I clicked on it wondering why it said Denton and it was him telling the story of going there. Needless to say my face was quite priceless while watching it.

With the Garage gigs over with... Why can't they play the Basement instant of the Garage? I know Dave doesn't have a Basement. Basement is a Billion times Better than a Garage!

so... my stepdad and brother run an auto repair shop with a huge garage here in NJ. it's like warehouse size. why didn't I think of this sooner! still no matter, our zip code wasn't eligibile to enter. even though we are right on the way from nyc to dc. sniff. Foos, if you see this and feel like venturing over here for a visit...the offer is always open!

My wife won the Chicago tour and to be honost I had no real clue how cool people they were.
Dispite it not actually being done at our actual garage ,due to weather, it was the most incredible moment of my life.
The thing that will always stick in my mind regarding the whole experiance was meeting them before the concert in a camper they rented and watching them chow down on a big bowl of candy bars and bouncing off the walls. Totaly crazy!!!
The more I look into these guys the more I like them.
They gave us first row seats and back stages passes for the Chicago show this fall.

I would LOVE to talk about the whole deal, expacially how we found out we won, if anyone wanted to hear it.
Wish everyone could have experienced it. Life changing, expecially for my 12 year old son.

I'm sure loads of people want to hear every detail. I'm not even much of a fan these days and I want to hear.

They said when they cancelled it that it was going to be rescheduled, but that was the last I heard. Maybe they'll squeeze it in when they are there in September.
