Anyone from Germany or Europe up for a trip to Japan in March? And yes this is a serious question!

F--K YEAH I read those! I absolutely loved them! i not only dig your writing style but it's a cool read- from the one show we were both in line for as well as the others...i hope you get to Japan!!!Partly, cuz it'd be so RAD and partly cuz I'm a "lil selfish" and if I can't go, the closest ill come is to live vicariously through your experience!

That seriously means a lot! Thank you so much for reading. And, trust me, I'm doing my best to make this happen.

So I read Dave's thank you post on FB to the fans, which was cool. The only thing that kinda gave me pause was it sounds like no more North American dates for '12. Meaning I'm kicking myself in the ass right about now because I really could never in a million fucking years believe that the Foo Fighters would pass on Dallas and/or Houston, TX., and only play shows in OK City and Tulsa fucking Oklahoma for their fans in the southern central portion of the US.

I mean, I know that we are all rednecks and shitkickers down here, but FUCK!! Just from an economic standpoint Dave and the boys stand to make more from a show in Dallas and a show in Houston than either set of shows in Oklahoma. I would wager that they could have sold out the "Death Star", aka, the new Dallas Cowboy Stadium. It rivals Wimbley in size, and Reliant in Houston isn't much smaller.

If I seem pissed I am, but not at the band. I'm pissed at myself for not buying tickets to the Oklahoma shows now that it seems that the boys are writing for the next album. I really wanted to see this album played live, and I don't have the time, or the resources to attend any of the remaining shows.

So in closing....FUCK ME!!!

And to all of you.....we're not finished yet. There are still more shows to play, more songs to write, more albums to record, for years to come.
Dave was just reflecting on the year, he didn't say that was it for touring this album. They've already got Japanese and South American dates planned and a show in NJ was announced today. They're not done.

Believe me...I hope that I am just over reacting. They are just my favorite band, and I don't want to miss this tour.

Which is why I drove to Little Rock, Atlanta and Charlotte to see them this year! I was NOT going to miss out on Foo Fighters this year! I'm still having some hope that the southern shows Dave mentioned back in May will still happen. He did say it was going to be in early 2012....still, nothing going on in Jan or Feb. Maybe my Christmas wish will come true? Who knows...but I'm glad I drove to see them. But yeah....Houston AND Dallas would ROCK! Keeping my fingers and toes and whatever else crossed.

Anyone know if there 'd be european tour? Or at least, I hope, they would be on some major rock fests. Damn, even japan gets to see them so it'd be a real bummer if old world won't

"Even" Japan? Are they not as deserving or something? FF haven't been there this tour because of the Tsunami whilst they have played throughout Europe already this year so yes, they are going there next year.

holy...just checked previous tour dates and yes it seems that they did play some gigs in europe...can't believe I've missed that :| idiot
hope they still come back to europe..no one's really talking about this year, I mean this year is two weeks away from ending

And, I'm not sure but I thought that their music is overall more popular in western countries and in asian, so when I thought they haven't played any shows in europe in support of their album and then I saw they've planned concerts for japan, I was kinda sad :3

yeah it'd be miracle if they would've came to ukraine or russia :| at least RHCP is visiting us

@Studmore , so there are no chances they will visit europe anymore with "Wasting Light" support tour? :| that's so sad, cause it became my favorite Foo's album.
But seems that they've played mostly in UK and sadly i couldn't afford ticket to get there anyway

I'm wondering if they will do a couple of uk festivals next summer, and then arena dates next autumn/winter? Don't they normally tour the arenas here?
