If you’ve read about my Foos curse before here then you only know the half of it. Since then there have been family events stopping me going to Foo gigs (how fucking rude) so when I was finally going to see them at Wembley I pretty fucking giddy! Until Dave broke his leg. *shakes head* Rescheduled for Milton Keynes it was back on. I mean who wants to go to Wembley (me actually).
I’ve been to the Milton Keynes Bowl only once before and the sound was pretty shocking, plus I was nursing one of the worst hang overs of my life so it wasn’t one of my better gig memories. Hence being keen to go to Wembley instead. Alas it was not to be.
We went hoping that the years which had passed would improve the sound quality and with the aim of being early enough to get into the inner pit.
While it was nice and sunny we left the pit to buy some crap overpriced lagers and sit on the hill while moaning about said crap lagers. I don’t mind paying £5 for a drink…I do it often but why such shitty choice? Anyway…
Royal Blood were up first they came out to Jay Zs 99 problems which was blasting out louder than any of their set – sigh.
Royal Blood – Barely Seen, Barely Heard.

They were fine…I mean it was quiet so they seemed fine. They chatted a bit. Sang a bit. It was all a bit uneventful. I was now really
worried pissed that the sound issues hadn’t been resolved.
Onto Iggy Pop….I bloody love Iggy Pop. I remember fondly my Iggy tshirt that I wore to Oasis at Heaton Park – several people commented on how ace it was. I no longer have it and I miss it Sorry. Back to the point. Now Iggy is still rocking the perma tan topless skinny jeans look even though he’s around 112, and in my opinion he still pulls it off.
I guess the sound engineers share my love of Iggy as they turned the volume up. (Still not enough though)
I Wanna Be Your Dog
Lust for Life
Five Foot One
Real Wild Child (Wild One)
Some Weird Sin
We headed down to the pit for the Foos, the first thing that struck me was that the pity was empty…well not empty but very roomy. Could have easily fit another 1000 in there!
Sound was cranked up and they were good, really good, I mean how could they not be. They’ve been doing this for 20 years.
You don’t need to to write a review as there’s probably about a million out there so i’ll just say: they have sorted out the sound issues, the throne is a bit lame but Dave still rocked, Taylors leggings were T I G H T and odd, Chris looked very French, Nate was well… Nate, Pat smokes a lot, and it was worth the wait.
