Foo show info -- both Oct 11 and 12
« on: October 11, 2017, 02:25:27 pm »
Anyone get emails or have info on when doors open, if you have to be in by a certain time (for the iheartradio gig tonight), other logistics?

Asking for both nights, which will differ, of course.

Doors for tonight's Iheartradio gig are 7:00.  That's all it said in the email that was forwarded to me.

The iheartradio broadcast starts at 9:00, so that's helpful info.

Are cell phones going to be locked in a baggie upon entry?  That was mentioned in the General forum, and while I get that for a comedy show, or something that folks don't want videos to be released, everyone pretty much knows what happens at a Foo show!

Thanks for the help, lots of coordination with the big Nats game tonight.

FWIW, I read that cell phone thing as a joke. Also a joke, the people who were actually already in line at 7am...

It's happened around town, so not all that crazy an idea.  But, makes little sense for Foo when you think about the reasoning.

I have no idea if the cell phone pouch thing is a joke or not, but the Foo Fighters are known as being pretty controlling about photographs of their performances.
