Surprised they haven't done this show before, but I guess it's part of their Greatest Hits promotion.

The only details known so far is it will be recorded in October, In LA.

    Had no idea where that radio station was to be honest. Emily is desperately trying to get to it and she mentioned they'll likely do a casting call thing, where you have to send VH1 your picture and the people they think will look the best get chosen. No details of such a thing though. We don't even know the date yet, but obviously after the 15th when TCV are done.

    Yeah that's too rich for my blood. I have met them 3 or 4 times before. $1050 is way too much to pay for that. Not that desperate. Nice to have the date of 10/28 for it though.

    I'm tempted to just blow all that money if it was only 1300 or 1550.... eh its for charity too, i can look at it that way haha

    but im sure near the end of the auction it will sky rocket

    I think they play around 10 songs for this...I'm guessing the songs taht will be played, but not in order:

    Wheels
    Everlong (acoustic)
    My Hero
    Times Like These
    Big Me
    Best of You
    The Pretender
    All My Life
    Monkey Wrench
    Learn to Fly

    I'm going to go out and a limb and say Everlong will be acoustic...

    Yeah they kept giving away tickets to this all morning on KROQ. I just kept thinking....suckers! I already have my ticket! I'm sure the winners felt that way when I didn't get into that Breakfast with Kevin and Bean thing too though.

    Cool. See ya tomorrow! Just heard back from the guy that runs Jessy's website and he said the Foos are playing the MTV Europe awards next week too. I'm sure that is old news but I thought I would throw that out there just in case.

    Yeah I was aware of that, not sure it's been posted here though. It's the day after the Jools Holland performance I think.

    hey simon, one of the All My Lifes was at the end, was like a encore haha. after they left the stage dave came back and said taylor broke his drum stick during the first take so they had to redo it.

    also they stopped best of you like 30 seconds in because Daves guitar was out of tune so they re did it right away.

    was really nice.... even got a set list haha its so funny on the set list after every song it says (talk) and one of Crhis' a picks.

    got stuck like behind the band they had these wierd seats behind the band. i think everyone i seen there got stuck behind them too on the other side... eh i guess it was nice were like right by the stage.

    of course i got stuck next to the biggest wierdo there...

    was wierd to get to finally meet everyone haha... Brad, Krista, Mike. It was nice to meet everyone and everything. you were the only person really missing Simon.

    Ahh right didn't know where they did the other AML, just heard someone say they did it twice. Sounds like a good show anyway, how was Word Forward live? I'm really liking the studio version, better than Wheels.

    Haha, as much as i'd have liked to be there, it was just a tad too far to get to. :p. I'm really hoping they're going to bust a UK show when they're here next week for Jools Holland and such.
    of course i got stuck next to the biggest wierdo there...

    Oh, you were next to Emily, huh? Bad luck.

    (I'm only daring to write that because she doesn't read here) :p

    haha i know that Simon... but you know what i mean... something i definatly wish you could of been at.


    haha... nah wasn't by them.

    Word Forward was really good live... i think it was the hightlight of the show for me song wise.

    was nice to hear Dave so emotonial for once talking about it before the song... i never listened to the whole song yet until last night..

    was annoying too about the wierdo and word forward... kept like screaming woo though it and stuff

    These kind of shows definitely seem cool to be at, but it's something they only really seem to do in the states. All of the TV shows they do here, like jools Holland next week are just TV series, so you can't just go and get tickets for a specific show, usually with BBC shows you put your name down for tickets for a show, then you just get on when they're available. Or you can have some sort of connection and get in that way of course.

    Like I say, i'm really hoping they do a proper fan gig here next week, but i'm not counting on it.
