On Saturday I went to see Foo Fighters at the Milton Keynes Bowl with davidrcooke
and his bf Chris. I'm only just recovering now, hence the late write-up. It was epic, and I don't mean epic in the sense that something mildly cool is epic, I mean epic
epic—they played for two and a half hours, and they had three support acts in the forms of Tame Impala, Death Cab For Cutie, and Biffy Clyro, plus two special (secret) guests in the forms of Roger Taylor (Queen) and Alice Cooper. Or as Dave Grohl put it, "Alice Fucking Cooper!"
EPIC, I tell ya.
It's safe to say it was the best live show I've ever been to, hands freaking down
, helped by the fact that the Foos are my favourite band and I've been dying to see them again. Since November last year it's been like waiting for all my childhood Christmases rolled into one. Yes, I know, but they're special!
Anyway, this write-up got a bit long so I'll pop the rest ( under a cut. Click here if you want an enthusiastic run-down of everything, with pics and links to footage of the show, as well as official music videos. Oh, and squee. Lots and lots of squee )
Right now I have a stinking head cold that I'd originally been mistaking for hayfever, but it's got worse over the last few days and it seems there's no escaping it. :/ So, I'm going to be mostly MIA until I'm de-snuffled. I hope you're all doing well!
