It looks like my nervousness was unfounded. GOY has wrapped up its run of seven shows as the Foo Fighters’ opening act and, based on a sampling of fan reaction on Twitter, things went very well. I kept an eye on Twitter throughout the 10 days or so that GOY was on tour with the Foos and here are some of the really positive tweets I saw:
Of course, not every tweet was glowing. There were some “they were okay” tweets, plus a few that weren’t happy with the acoustics while Gang of Youths played … but the tweets above are representative of the overall reaction. It looks like GOY made a lot of new fans and that’s definitely a Good Thing.
