STELLAR PERFORMANCE - 2
Once Grohl voice warmed up from shrieking was radio spot on. These guys really need to do WKEXP sometime. Cohesion among the group was solid, the sound shook our very bodies and he poured himself out on stage going so far as to break a string in a duet with Peter Searcy. The opening act the Struts were not quite so much my thing but they really warmed the crowd up with a saucy performance from an Irish(?) frontman that led in the Spirit of the Foo's for feeling us out with crowd interaction. The guitarist had some licks that, though familiar, still manage to come out of left field. Of course, all vocals are hard to hear in the BJCC. Impactful but on the muddy side. Perhaps highlight of the night was "Big Me", "The Pretender", and "Learn to Fly". "Sunday Rain" I believe is a Hawkins song. But this guy has an inner Ringo Starr in him because he pulled out all the stops on this tune. Masterful technician of a drummer and had me mesermized and shaken in my seat at time.

These guys cash their checks. They might be earning "money for nothing, and their checks for free" but by golly they put their backs into it. Dave Grohl is livin the dream and the other guys for the most part appear to have enough energy to enjoy themselves well enough. Grohl can live or die by the audience. Or, he can live and die with subtle cutting remarks to spank that rear to get motivated to ENJOY SOME ROCK AND ROLL! Grohl voice was a bit shaky on the first few tunes; working his energy up to absolutely lay it on our noses halfway into the set. The first tunes were their newest hits and they actually were decent but Grohl obliterated his timid audience into a state of euphoric bliss when the Foo's started cranking out their slightly less recent material. These guys have had years to pound these tunes out from radio drivel to moments of pure joy as he and the group chug out an audience appreciation moment. Grohl can be so fun and clear this guy an absolute showman.

FF DESTROY THE COLOSSEUM
This was my first time seeing the band after years of trying - my family surprised me with the tickets. Right from the start, they make it clear that we were in for event of a lifetime. After 3 songs in Dave welcomes us to the concert and commented that "we were very fxxking loud", but this really was the start. They took us on a discography tour from the start of the band right thru to today's newest material. To say I was floored would be a massive understatement. They played for a solid 3 hours with out missing a beat - I was exhausted when I left there. I can't wait to see them again - hopefully closer to my Maryland home. Rock on Foo Fighters!

Finally got to the see the FF after years of hoping they’d come to NC. Let me tell you, this band goes out of its way to ensure the fans get their money’s worth. Unbelievable show that went for 3 solid hours. Absolute great performance that covered 22 years of songs from this band. The venue was set up great for the concert and the folks in attendance were great. No issues with anyone and everyone had a great time with absolutely no drama. Great band, great crowd, great time!

AWESOME MUSIC, TERRIBLE AUDIENCE
The Foo Fighters were great! The audience, however, seemed tired and stationary. It's a rock show people. If you wanted to stand motionless with your arms crossed then you should have went to a Kenny G show.
Mike Goodman from Neenah, Wisconsin
Best concert I have ever been too. Best band on the planet. Nobody out there can come close to Foo Fighters. Group is a God.

SHOW AMAZING LEAVING SCARY
Show was amazing as always I have seen them several times. Very hot but breeze saved the night! Going that hard without a break in the heat was special! Good mix of old and new! Leaving everyone was funneled to a narrow exit and the crowds were way to big and way too crowded good thing the people were cool because it could have gotten ugly. Need more exits open next time and some lights.
