Foo Fighters this weekend, finally headlining at Glastonbury 2017 this past June, after several tries, but certainly worth the wait. One of the worlds most popular bands at the moment, I thought several times before posting this – as I am sure everyone on the planet who is a fan of Grohl & co. have heard this one at least a hundred times since it was first recorded.
But in case you haven’t – this is a good one, and it has been characterized in the press as one of the best Foo Fighters concerts ever. And at a little over 2 hours, it certainly covers the bases. And it almost accomplished Grohl’s fervent wish to pull an all-nighter at Glasto this year.
Since the band is a household name, re-hashing their story is slightly redundant. Suffice to say, Foo Fighters have scored highly on a lot of musicians lists, and their guest appearances read like a Who’s Who of Rock. After a disappointing last minute pull-out from Glasto 2015, owing to a broken leg on Dave Grohl‘s part, the band more than made up for the loss by turning in a highlight set to the festival; further cementing their reputation as one of the best of the current crop of Alternative bands to hit the concert and club circuit.
All of this comes ahead of the release of their 9th album, Concrete And Gold, slated to come out in September of this year.
So while you’re getting ready for that to be released, a reminder of a monumental gig earlier this summer by one of the most successful bands in America at the moment.
