The Foo Fighters Are On A Roll
Over the weekend, Foo Fighters headlined the Reading and Leeds festival and Dave Grohl had several tricks up his sleeve. From the guest appearance of Grohl’s 13-year old daughter Violet to bringing Freddie Mercury lookalike on stage, they basically showed everyone why they remain one of the most loved rock bands today. At their closing set for the Reading Festival last August 25, they pulled out all the stops with a fiery and thundering cover of AC/DC’s 1977 classic hit Let There Be Rock.
As expected, they delivered the goods. The surprises didn’t stop there because Grohl brought out a special guest.
“Some of you may know that the Reading Festival holds a very special place … This is the first big festival I ever played in my life when I was 22 in 1991. It was a long time ago.
“I thought tonight we’ll do something special for you that pays tribute to a song that brings us way back in time. It’s maybe the reason why I’m here tonight headlining the main stage. If you know it you can bounce around to it.” – Dave Grohl
At first, people thought he was gonna play a Nirvana tune but then Rick Astley came out and performed his iconic track “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Check out both clips below.
