    The shortness of the album is the whole point, though. Eight tracks, eight cities, eight weeks, eighth album. That's the theme, that's the concept.

    And plus, it's forty-five minutes. That's nowhere near an EP.

    Anyone preorder this album? Does the vinyl come with a digital download as well? I'm not seeing any info on this on their website.

    I'm excited for the new album and subsequent tour. Wasting Light was pretty awesome and I'm really interested in the concept of the new album. I wonder if it's going to be standard Foo Fighters with a little twist or we're talking a lot of experimentation.

    Yeah, I think Wasting Light was their best album since The Colour and the Shape. It was classic Foo. With Pat Smear seemingly a full time member again, seems like this incarnation of the Foo's sure can write a good tune. Looking forward to hearing what's in store this time around. With the album only 8 tracks, and the total running time of 45 mins, that's almost 6 minutes a song. Those are some long foo songs, but that's cool, I like long songs that kind of progress as the song goes on.

    I actually like "One by One"... :/

    "Come back" is one of my favorites "long" songs by the Foo's:

    I haven't watched TV for 11 years now (with the exception of the World Cup), but you bet I'm going to be bugging my friends with HBO, come October.

    Ah yes, Dave Grohl... the President of Music and CEO of Rock & Roll.

    I could only do Monday and Tuesday because I'll be out of town the rest of the week(and I'm actually supposed to leave Tuesday after work. So if I win, I'm sure it will be for Tuesday). So for my third one, I just picked a date later in the month. I would really like to catch Dave before he is gone, regardless of who is on. I won tickets to the Black Keys Live on Letterman thing, but never to an actual show.

    I will be in NYC on Friday Oct. 17th (and not before)...and even though the Rolling Stone article mentions that the band will play on that Friday, tickets are not offered for that day. Website says: "the dates listed below are the only days on which we are currently scheduled to tape". Does anyone know more about this?

    They tape two shows on Thursdays, I believe, and have Fridays off.

    Edit: Yeah.

    Schedule: Late Show tapes Monday through Wednesday at 4:30pm and two shows on Thursdays, at 3:30 and 6pm. For more information, call

    FF does Black Sabbath on night one. I must say, that was fun to watch

    They're reeeeally dragging out debuting any of their new material (other than during those Sonic Highways snippets). AFAIK, no full songs are available yet (or have even been played), right? The short clip of "The Feast and the Famine" sounds pretty cool though.

    I'm guessing they'll do some type of guest-singer thing each night and then debut a song on Friday, or something. It feels weird watching Letterman, since I haven't seen a full ep in maybe 5 years.

    I think their deal with HBO restricts them from debuting anything until the show airs Friday.

    I imagine that would be the case.

    I freaked out this morning when I saw this. I'm going to try my damndest to get tickets for this thing tomorrow. Haven't been to the Cubby Bear, but I know it's quite a small venue!

    Edit: The Foos are going to have a busy Friday! Aren't they going to be coming from Letterman in NY (which presumably films in the afternoon) right to Chicago? Plus Sonic Highways debuts that night, too.

    The Letterman show aired on Friday is taped on Thursday afternoon. Otherwise I'd be going to that (won't arrive in NYC til this Friday). Good luck with tickets!

    Yeah, I was in the waiting room for awhile ... as of like 10:05-ish, they're "SOLD OUT." Lame. I had hope, since I was actually able to select number of tickets and "check out." Welp, guess I will go and pout for the rest of the day.

    Sounds like you got closer than me. I might just go stand outside on Friday and see what happens. Ugh. I got up sooooo early this morning to get back into the city in time for this. Now I'm exhausted.
