Foo Fighters Announce Irving Plaza Show

In this article…

About an hour ago, the Foo Fighters announced a show at NYC venue Irving Plaza scheduled for this Friday, December 5, on their Tumblr page. Dave Grohl and company are going very old school for this show: none of the tickets will be sold online. All tickets must be picked up at the box office on the day of show. There ewre a couple other stipulations listed too, including:

• No line ups before 3 pm
• Tickets go on sale at 5 pm
• Limit to no more than two (2) per person
• The show is open to all ages

Tickets are only going to cost $20 bucks to see the Foos in a mid-sized venue. When you look at the types of venues they'll be playing on tour this summer (lots of arenas and stadiums like CitiField, Honda Center, The Forum, etc.), this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a band of this magnitude in a room that can only hold about 1,200 people.

Part of me is furious that I won't be able to go to this. Unless by some act of God I get a half day on Friday and can get right to Irving Plaza to wait for tickets at 3 PM, there is no way that's going to happen. But after I've gotten over that, this is a really cool thing that Grohl and the band is doing. They could have charged whatever they wanted and people would have payed it. They could have made folks jump through a million hoops. But all they are asking is for people to go to the venue and pick up tickets live. AND, kids of all ages get to experience the Foo Fighters. That's pretty awesome, because the earlier you can be exposed to Foo, the better.

Yeah, this is a can't-miss event if you are lucky enough to snag one of those tickets. Foos go on at 10 after a screening of their Sonic Highways finale, featuring New York City.
