    Rock music excites me more than any other music. I listen to a lot of singers. But I have a special love for Foo Fighters band. Their style has really made its way to my heart and without doubt to a lot of other Rock music. Unfortunately, I’ve a chance to watch them on stage only once because tickets are always pricy. I’ve just discovered a site to compare ticket prices for free and I find it something important because this way I can look for the cheapest price offered. You may need to use it:
    Foo Fighters tickets
    I hope I could see them this summer!!!!
