Since the Foos are rarely in Indiana, I'm going with Kat and my brother and sisters. We're going to be in Section 6, Row 6. I'm really looking forward to it.

Who else is going to the Foo Fighters concert at Conseco? Where are your seats?

I'm going with some friends. We're in section 4, row 20ish I think.

I'll be there, but I forget where my seat is (somewhere in the lower bowl) because I ordered it months ago.

I'll be there somewhere on the floor, not sure I understand the tickets....

Bump . . . anyone else starting to get fired up for this?

I've seen a couple set lists of some recent shows; looks like there will be an awesome mix of everything.

Glad Grohl got sick last week and not this one!!

Our seats ended up just 30 feet away from the acoustic stage. That was pretty sweet, and definitely my favorite part of the show. Good times.

Here are some pictures I took last night (sitting with obnox & Kat & friends). Initially I thought I'd struck gold when I discovered on-site a setting for my camera that was tailored for this kind of setting (being in the dark audience taking pictures of something on a stage under bright lights). I had what looked like some great shots when I saw them on my camera's screen.

When I looked at them this morning, I was left somewhat disappointed.

Here are some that stood out (and even these are pretty rough). I've let photoshop do some touchups on some of these to help a little bit.

I'm sure this will get taken down from YouTube eventually, but I snagged one video last night:

Did they happen to play any Who songs?

Give yourself (or your photoshop at least) some credit. A couple of those closeups of Dave are good.

They played a good rendition of "Young Man Blues". From what I've read, they've been playing that song on this tour.

Good pics and sweet video. It's like I was there sitting next to you!

It was a great concert.

I got some pictures, but few are decent. I snagged some videos, also. I'm not too worried about YouTube taking them down, I've had a Smashing Pumpkins video from a concert that I saw back in October '07.

I didn't really try to record or take pictures because all I had was my phone. But I did get this, but eh it's not that great...

Where's the picture of Dave smashing the crap out of that guitar? :D

I'm starting to gain some hearing back today. That's a good sign.

I really like the Foo's, but I refuse to attend a concert at Conseco. Shows just don't sound good in that place. Actually, I refuse to attend them at Verizon too because you can't get out of that place for two hours after a show. If they could find a way to combine Verizon's audio with Conseco's lack of traffic problems I'd go to more shows.
