Foo Fighters Showcase New Album At London Wembley Arena Gig
February 26, 2011
Foo Fighters previewed songs from their forthcoming new album at a one-off gig in London tonight (February 25).
Playing their first official gig in two years, Foo Fighters played a number of songs from new album, 'Wasted Light'.
"You guys realise this is like out first f*cking show in two years," singer Dave Grohl said. "It's nice to say we're back.
"You guys know we've got a new record coming out in a month and a half? There's some songs we'd like to play you off it."
The band then launched into new single 'Rope'. Other new songs included ‘White Limo’ and 'These Days'.
Elsewhere, Foo Fighters' 18-song set relied heavily on hits from their extensive back catalogue.
'Monkey Wrench', 'Generator', 'All My Life' and 'Pretender' all attracted huge crowd sing-alongs.
The band were relentless throughout, but Grohl did pause at one point to thank the London audience for "always being so f*cking good to use".
Foo Fighters concluded their set with a raucous four-song encore that culminated in ‘Best Of You’.
Foo Fighters set list:
Before the band took to the stage, Cee Lo Green performed a short set, which included songs by Gnarls Barkley as well as his recent hit single, '**** You'.
The gig also featured a performances from Band Of Horses, who played songs from recent album ‘Infinite Arms’, and No Age.
