Which one? Dingwalls?

I missed it as I was on a train home from London following the gig at the Arena the night before - had hoped they would put a secret show on the Thurs between the 2 shows - literally spent all that day roaming Camden just in case.

Edit: the tickets then went on sale the same week Friday respectively* (20th Jan & 3rd Feb)

*Some tickets go on sale for a price (e.g. £50) and then the rest are from a ballot**

Unsure if this has already been posted but that website has been updated to say:

Tickets are on sale for the awards ceremony yes, this is for the gigs that they put on in aid of War Child.

So tickets for most of them on sale next Friday (whatever bands/acts they are).

I won't be able to relax while they're in the UK. I'll be worried I'm missing out on something

Unless they did a gig in Scotland I'm not going to make it. I have 3 trips to London in late June/early July already booked.

Considering I'm seeing the Foos twice in London, its taking the piss if they put on another show there and leave out other areas of the UK. The Foos really shouldn't be entertaining the Brit Awards anyway, as they are a fix for the record companies to award their own artists and lack credibility.

The chairman of the Brits is the CEO of Sony UK. Itís quite easy to draw a direct line between that and them playing. But, thatís the music industry for you and thatís what Foo Fighters are part of. On the positive side itís another performance thatíll be broadcast on TV - and potentially a special one at that.

Does anyone have a spare ticket for...

Only joking! I'll be happy enough watching Foos on the telly if they do play a song or two at the Brits, but I live in hope for a War Child gig; it's a good cause and I imagine it's something all of them would happily promote and support. Fingers crossed for the announcement on Tuesday.

Iím happy to support War Child too. I think it would be nice if we did get a one off but if not then Iíll have to make do with one gig on the summer. Was hoping to do London as well but that my cousins wedding is that weekend and Iíd never be forgiven if I missed it. So Iíd didnít get tickets.
