earlier this month, richard's cousin john invited us to go to the foo fighters
concert with him and his wife jen. we don't only own one foo fighters
album between the two of us, but we love john and jen (and a free concert),
so of course we said yes.
we met at their house, with just enough time to rile up their kids
before the babysitter came over, and then headed to the show.
the husbands aren't allowed to be the only planners anymore because
apparently we were supposed to all have dinner together, but i never got
that memo and ended up making dinner before we left. jen and i will
be checking in with the masterminds for any future plans.
the tickets we had were for one of the luxury suites, but we started the
night down on the floor. the opening act was ok - nothing to write home
about. although, dave grohl did play drums for them!
we eventually made our way up to the box seats.
jen is really this tall.
we ended up knowing a lot more songs than we thought we would, just
like with U2 and kenny loggins. we had a rockin' good time.
dave grohl is amazing. they played about a million songs,
just like he promised they would, and he did a lot of screaming,
but you really couldn't hear it in his voice until the last song.
also note, he dances like a muppet.
they fought the foo until almost midnight, which means they played for
nearly 3 hours! it was a great show, but i think its safe to say that we
were all about ready when it ended.
the ericksons know how to have a good time, and we are so glad they
took us along for the ride!
