Foo Fighters Going Old School

(Classic Rock) Foo Fighters fans in the US have been asked to queue up for tour tickets in person rather than buying online, in an attempt to defeat touts. Dave Grohl and co have just announced a 29-date tour of the States, with a pre-sale on Saturday morning at venue box offices only.

The band say in a statement: "Fans sick of scalper bots programmed to clog online queues and snatch up huge amounts of tickets to resell them will get first shot at tickets to these shows."

Meanwhile, Grohl has argued that everyone should spend more time away from their digital devices in general. He tells the Red Bulletin: "People have forgotten what it's like to really rock out because they spend all day in front of a computer, which they hail as the new god.

"They seriously think technology can make them rich if they stumble on something new. But I'm telling you - technology might make you rich, yet it will never make you happy."
