Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl's band have established themselves as one of the hardest rocking and unpretentious outfits on the planet since forming in 1994. Known for their inventive, tongue in cheek videos and ferocious live performances, the band are currently recording their sixth studio album.



Energetic and inspiring. Best band in the world. BOW DOWN! Looking forward to new material.

Foo Fighters were awesome. Dave Grohl had so much energy. I don't know where he gets it from. They really worded up the crowd.

I'd seen the Foo's on MTV etc and thought they were OK, some good some not so good and a bit of spoof thrown in too. Well I was wrong, they are not OK at all they are magnificent. The Foo's blew Wembley away and I just stood (well actually I bounced) as DG & co just hit the crowd with an energy that towered over the other bands. It's great to be surprised and I now think they are probably one of the top five live bands around.

Foo Fighters absolutely rocked Wembley - stunning. Cant wait for them to perform there in their own right. Dave Grohl is a living legend

David Hendy
they rocked!!!!they held the crowd with their performances of 'everlong', 'all my life', 'my hero' and 'times like these'

Phillip Pritchard
It's the Foo Fighters =D Best show of the night. Loved every second, should have stayed on all night like Dave suggested =P. Can't wait for V-fest now = DPure Rock at it's best, are we seeing the Queen of our generation!? Let's hope so.

The day had been good for the most part, though some bands where not all that good. But as soon as we knew Foo Fighters were coming on, the entire stadium started to buzz, and those sitting in the PIT got up as we prepared for one hell of a good time! they didn't disappoint either!! They were brilliant! picked me up completely, to the point were I lost my voice and jumped around like a kid on a trampoline!! However, this is not a complaint! I stood for 12 hours waiting for them to come on...and would gladly do it again! they were the highlight of the day!!

Dave Mills
There were many great performances at wembley but for me the foos was the set of the day!! Doing what they do best. At least the bbc didnt cut them. With a new album comes a new tour, hmmm Where could Dave and the boys play next summer i wonder ??

mark c

Charlotte Kinson
Definately the best act there by far! They really got the crowd going and were lively and having fun which always makes for a good show. By the end of the set they had the whole crowd jumping! Amazing! :)

too short! as a foo fan i would have like to see them for longer and play more but i am sure dave and his merry men have got some new fans too. they should have finished it instead of maddona and her mad gypsy folk. the sound quality was very good. thanks for coming over to do the show.

I've just got in from Live Earth Wembley. Amazing day out, Dave Grohl... Im still speechless. Best performance I have seen in years, the atmosphere turned electric the moment he got going. Fantastic.
