Yes all tickets should be available on all mediums but I have secured tickets on their app to gigs that were impossible to get online.

I'll be using the app rather than refreshing on a browser for an hour.

"Yeah, but I also think we’ll fit in some club gigs while we're there. I love playing stadiums… it’s fun and a spectacle. I think we've finally gotten to a point where we’re good at it, and Dave is a great front man, he's got balls and he can be “that guy”. That bigger than life front man. But I like doing the club shows, too, so hopefully we can fit in all the sizes you know what I mean?"

Well, well, well!

That would be epic what what is the likelihood of them playing 3 nights in a row & being able to move the necessary gear interstate and setup a stadium show w no days off?

They don't do three night in a row on the main tours.

Does anybody know if they are sharing the bill with Rise Against or they are just opening? I'm trying to figure out if the Foos will play their typical 2.5-3hr show or if it will be less...

I'm from Canada but I'm going to be in Bali around then and the idea of making the jaunt to Australia is looking kind of appealing (it's my 30th birthday for the Sydney show!).

Looking at both Sydney and Perth - Perth seems a lot cheaper and shorter from Bali. Any advice on which one to go with? Is there lots to do in Perth to stick around for a week or so?

It's been a couple years since I've been to a show and I'm really getting amped to see them again! I'm hoping to catch them at a club gig in the states this summer if that happens, but a stadium show sounds wicked too!

Rise Against will be opening as a support act, they have opened for FF several times before in the US. It's a Foo Fighters show, they'll be playing a full length show.

It will be way cheaper to get to Perth, but there is shit all to do there.

They've also got the Delta Riggs as their openers. So them - Rise Against - FF.

So there's a slight addition to the stage layout compared to the WL tour.

Was at a new live music venue in Brisbane last night, the Triffid. Has a nice beer garden and outside atmosphere. The stage is in an old aircraft hanger that has been refurbished and renovated. It would be tops to see the Foos play a club show there on the tour

I'm really tempted by this, coming out there for a year next month so I'll miss the UK shows if/when they ever announce them. I presume frontier will accept international orders on this sort of thing with box office collection. Never had to buy a non uk gig ticket from here before and they will be going on sale at about 3am our time so not certain it's worth staying up all night to try .

I'm working on the assumption it will sell out in minutes like they usually do here. Dibs on any Sydney tickets if you lot can't make it
