Foo Fighters teamed up with AC/DC’s Brian Johnson for a searing performance of the classic hit “Back in Black” at Global Citizen’s Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World. It took place at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on May 2 but was only streamed online on May 8. Foo Fighters played a six-song set that featured fan favorites like “Everlong”, “All My Life”, and “Times Like These”.
They rocked out to an audience of 27,000 which was mostly made up of vaccinated frontliners – healthcare and essential workers.
Before launching into “Back in Black”, Grohl told the crowd: “So considering that this is the first show [in front of an audience] that we’ve done in a year and a half — a long time — we thought that we would make this a special occasion for all of us.”
“So say you want to do something special, what do you do? Call a friend to come play with you, right?,” he continued. “Why not call one of your good friends who happens to be a rock legend to come jam with you.”
Hosted by Selena Gomez, the event also featured Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Jennifer Lopez, J Balvin and H.E.R.
