Tweet saying pre order for presale access to UK dates being announced shortly!!
Have you got a link to the tweet? Can't see anything on the Foo twitter account
I can't find it either - it might be region blocked?
This is a weird one, it seems to link to a copy of the Foo order page but if I type in on-repeat.co.uk I get one page of a b/w gig pic and a mail link to firstname.lastname@example.org but then there is Sony Music Entertainment at the bottom.
store.on-repeat takes you to a site full of band merch.
Some people have ordered from the UK Foo store and said they get the message to sign up for the access code.
So I don't know, it's so easy to set up scams these days. Might wait and see what happens as I would have thought if it was legit Foos they would have promoted it or at least sent us an email. They've been sending plenty out to get us to buy off the site!
** Did some more digging**
The site is linked to Ceremony of Roses which does seem to be linked to Sony and Kontraband is also a brand under the umbrella.
Seems it is legit and I wasn't getting it up because my ISP isn't in the UK, even if I go to the UK store.
Great news but also curious as to where and when they will play. it seems to early for a 2024 summer show announcement and to late for 2023. they do have a little window from mid August which might work but with the football season starting already it would need to be International stadiums. Other than that it could be winter indoor shows.
Really hoping for a big summer next year but with so many dates already in the calendar for them they seem to be going for it ASAP.
Wouldn’t surprise me if they did November dates. They always seem to be here that time of year
I've got my screen shot for Birmingham June 22 on my desktop, bought those tickets August 21.
So does seem a little early for summer 24.
They don't have that many breaks from end of May to mid-Oct, just 3 fortnights and potentially a couple of those might land in US (private!) school hols?
I found it last night on Facebook - it was a sponsored ad from the verified FF page, but it linked to store on repeat and not shopuk.foofighters.com which I would have expected: if you go onto the official shop, there's no mention of getting a presale code if you preorder. So it confused me, but as you said, it's all Sony Music so it looks fine. I filled in the form just in case though.
if you go onto the website and go to the Pre-Order section then click on the FF logo the page that comes up states the UK tour.
Yeah, but that doesn't link through to main shop, just Sony's pre-order page.
I was expecting to see a summer 2024 tour announcement for UK & Europe around August time this year (we still might get this).
Australia & NZ for late 2023 & early 2024 then perhaps South America after that (if they go back as a tour) followed by Europe & US. Was expecting to see a very busy 2024 (and still am) but their schedule for this year is already very intense.
Very exciting times.
the same pre-sale code message is also on facebook from the official FF account :)
Yep always! Especially arena era FF
Oh how I miss arena era FF
I'm sad I missed arena era FF in Oz, I was here but didn't know about them (yes, I know, slap on the wrist) but some friends went a couple of times and I'm so cross they didn't suggest we go as well. I only found out when we all went to see them at the stadium.... arghhh! I could have got another 2 rounds of tours in!
I've signed up for the UK thing, hoping it will be next summer and not November. But I have a suspicion all that it will be is adding you to the Foo's normal mailing list, I don't think it will be a special pre-sale but I used a different email address so we'll see!
I would chuck so much money to see them back in an arena again.
Same. Although arena dates would probably be easily £90+ in today's climate
It wouldn't surprise me.
Especially with all the damn fees!!
Yeah if it's going to be an arena tour it'll definitely have about 30% minimum at a premium with Ticketmaster that means it'll be 50k for an average seat
Ugh! Imagine the anxiety of an arena tour!
It's already making me feel stressed!
