After running a marathon up Pikes Peak, you might want to get off your feet. Me? Nah. My bestest concert buddy said she would go with me to Foo Fighters. I was so excited! I even wore a Metallica shirt secretly in tribute to her. You see, she introduced me to this shit. She took me to my first metal concert, Metallica! If that never happened in 1991, life would be so much more boring.
Even though it was raining on arrival, I knew this would be a good show. Dave had broken his leg in Sweden last month prior to the tour but the show went on. As famously reported on the Internet, he had a throne built and played the show from the chair. Made for a funny evening. You cannot contain this guy. He is such a nut and has so much energy.
The Foos are playing two nights here in Colorado. Sadly, I will only be attending one. But we got our monies worth with 25+ songs. A lot of covers tonight. The crowd kept cheering Dave on when he asked about playing them. Kim wasn’t thrilled. She wanted to hear their own music. I agreed. Maybe they were just spreading it out because of the dual shows. They hit the stage around 8:30 and played until past 11, which was curfew there. It is always a full show.
Dave pulled this drunk guy up on stage that was crying during My Hero. The Internet picked up on it and it trended the next day. Here is the story. It was funny to watch. Dave is always spying back on the crowd and pointing out a random person several rows back and having a conversation. He entertains.

Thanks for another great date, Kim!
Oh, and what’s up with parking at Fiddler’s this year? You have to pay now? That’s crap.
