Foo Fighters – YES! – October 14th – If you compel me….

Just to give you a little peek behind the curtain, the nice people at Goldenvoice often grace us with delicious bundles of free tickets to their events, in hopes that we will write about them and increase attendance.

We love this – and I have to say that I love it in particular because

a. I’m too cheap to buy tickets to things, and
b. I like to feel like a bigshot.

Most of the time there are tickets a-plenty, which means the person who blogs the story gets two, and everyone who wins the contests we run gets the rest. Nice deal.

Except now. When we only get ONE PAIR of Foo Fighters tickets!

That means I have to be generous and groovy and give YOU these tickets, without even getting to go myself! Think of it! The horror!


The contest is this: You tell me why YOU deserve to go more than I do, and you get a pair of tickets to FOO FIGHTERS AT THE FORUM ON THE FOURTEENTH.

Simple, right?

So get creative. Because I REALLY dig this band.

  1. The Foos saved/changed/completed/made my life. For real. Seeing them at THIS venue, where they filmed the All My Life video, would probably make my head explode. But in a good way.

  2. I’ve never seen the Foo Fighters live before. And… I believe I’ve waited long enough.

    If you pick me, you’ll be able to say that… you gave me something that I didn’t have.

    And whenever I see you, I’ll say… there goes my hero.

    During the show, I’ll be asking myself… if everything could ever feel this real forever, if anything could ever be this good again.

    If you pick me, I will be ecstatic and thinking that… you’re so considerate.

    Please please please! :)

  3. My heart rate went up just from reading this! Holy crap! Okay, I’ll try to refrain from too many exclamation marks. I turned 30 this year. Belated birthday gift? I’m not sure I can say I deserve the tickets more than you, but I do heart the Foo Fighters. Their music picks me up when I’m feeling crappy.

    1. Natalie, You got me!

      30 is a big deal, and your heart SHOULD race for the fighting of foo – You Win!

      Now let me figure out how to extract your contact info and I’ll give you further instructions.

      1. Ruth, I don’t even know what to say!!!!!! Thank you SO much. Wow! I can’t believe it! Thank you thank you thank you thank you! You just made my whole month!!!!! There are not enough exclamation marks to show how excited I am.

  4. I have yet to see them and they have been on my list for ages. Wanted to try and go to one of their little shows earlier this year but work schedule doesn’t permit what it takes to get tickets to those.

    please thank you

  5. pick camille because hers was best. just thought i would let you know what you should do.
    p.s. i dont know her and dont want tickets, im just nosey and wanted to see if people are still creative in the world

  6. I have been a Foo Fighters fan since I was a kid, they’re basically the reason I moved out to Los Angeles to pursue my dreams (I just got here three weeks ago!). They were just in my hometown of Kansas City and all my buddies went and sent me pics to make me jealous. I’m a broke student, dying to see my favorite band of all time! I have GOT to see Wasting Light songs played live!!! Help me see Dave, Chris, Pat, Nate, and Taylor keep it clean!

    ps. this pic is of me in Austin, TX. I found the White Limo during SXSW via twitter! It was awesome, but alas, i didn’t get to see them play. Also, it was a coincidence that I was wearing one of my Foo shirts that day, I had no idea they were going to be there.

  7. I’ll get a nice call from you soon because you realized awhile ago that you have some karma to make up for and I just made up some of mine…

  8. Dave Grohl is sexy and is in love with me but he doesn’t know it yet. HOW CAN YOU STAND IN THE WAY OF TRUE LOVE. how could you do that. please. please. I’m offering my heart, soul and my pet ferret, lemon meringue, for these tickets. oh please give them to me.

  9. I would love the tickets. We have a 4 year old and our concert going has been stalled for a while. Foo’s give me the same happy feeling that I get when I listen to the Beach Boys. Takes me to the happy place. Dave is the man, he has played with Motorhead, Led Zepplin and Nirvana. Can’t get better than that.

  10. Holy Crap – So many great choices.

    In the end I had to go with Natalie and her accelerated heart rate.

    Thanks to everyone for commenting!

  11. I would give my right arm to see these guys one last time! I had main floor tickets for the Sept.19th show at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan ( I live over in Windsor, Ontario, Canada ) which I bought the tickets back in May. And at that same time I was waiting on my pardon for what they told me would be in. FYI…My DOB is the 20th of Sept. So this was going to be my “Birthday” concert.
    Long story short, I ended up giving up my tickets to a friend of mine and well, 2 days following my “Birthday” concert, guess what comes in the mail? Yep, you guessed it. My stupid pardon. Now I have been logging into to every single website and contest to try and win my some Foo Tickets. I would be so grateful if you were to pass these tickets along to me. But I’m sure everyone on here would love to have them just as much as I would.
    Thanks for the time. And I think this is super cool of you to be giving these and other tickets away just like this. I envy your kindness.
