Foo Fighters Kick Off Summer Of Shows


Foo Fighters did their first full concert of the year on Wednesday – and their first with drummer Josh Freese.

“Would you please welcome... the man behind the drums, Josh Freese has helped save the day,” Grohl said on stage in New Hampshire. “We would not be here tonight if it weren"t for Josh so, everybody give Josh a big f**king round of applause.”

Foo Fighters kicked off the 21-song setlist with the live debut of “Rescued” off the new album But Here We Are (out June 2) and previewed the title track as well as “Under You” and “Nothing At All.” Grohl"s daughter Violet joined the band on the 2020 track “Shame Shame.”

Grohl was visibly emotional while introducing “Cold Day in the Sun,” the 2005 song penned by the late Taylor Hawkins. “We used to sing it together,” he said. “So I’m going to do it for him tonight.”

Of course, the Foo delivered fan faves like “My Hero,” “Learn to Fly” and the closing track “Everlong.”

Foo Fighters are scheduled to perform July 8 at the Quebec Summer Festival in Quebec City and July 12 at Ottawa Bluesfest.
