I just found out that I'm going to be in England at the same time that the Foo Fighters are playing Wembley. I've heard quite a lot of hype about the type of production they are going to have for this show, but is it going to be worth the kind of money I would have to shell out to get a decent ticket?

yes. if i was younger and without much responsibility i would have already booked the trip myself, but that is not my reality these days.

also, was checking for a friend and tickets were still available via the ticketing agency a couple weeks ago.

see tickets (http://www.seetickets.com/see/event.asp?e%7Cartist=FOO+FIGHTERS&n|artist=null&resultsperpage=20&filler1=see&filler2=art-srch)

If they have floor tix, go for sure. They use 2 stages, so get yourself a place (or seat) near one of the stages. They put on a great show in LA - no doubt a great one in England as well. The 2nd stage drops from above, so look up!

wembley will be different...they are doing it in the round with ramps jutting out in many different directions.

so in looking at this, that level 1 section 144 ticket is a damn good seat...

Do it, and if that ticket Steve pulled up is there, you have a prime view for this. And yeah I want to hear what they hell is going to happen at this. If there is no official DVD made of these performances, it will be a shame.

I would not. Yeah they sold out MSG but wembley? So many other things to do in England.

I'm currently bidding on a pair of floor tickets. the auction is over in 7 hours so I'll see if I get the tix in the morning.

If you put that way, then it's a lock.

I had an opportunity to see U2's rattle and hum tour at Wembley. I had the money and a couple of days off of work. I was going to go just for the concert then come back home. I didn't do it and have regretted it ever since.
