They Reopened The Venue With A Bang
Foo Fighters reopened Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 20 and it was a massive success. They marked their triumphant return to the iconic venue with a roaring three-hour set. They powered through their songs in front of 18,000 screaming fans and it almost looked surreal. After over a year with no live music, they performed a mix of classic hits and covers. They even welcomed special guests on stage.
The show was for fully-vaccinated fans only and they had to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry. Unsurprisingly, there were a few anti-vaxxers protesting outside – the same thing happened at the Foos’ warm-up gig at a small club in Agoura Hills.
After playing a couple of their greatest hits, drummer Taylor Hawkins traded his sticks with a mic to take over their cover of Queen’s “Somebody to Love”.
They wrapped up their set with an epic live performance of “Everlong”.
