j'avais vu l'info sur Tight But Loose, sans y preter attention
Foo Fighters play "in the round" at Wembley Stadium
As had been widely rumoured all week, Jimmy Page
and John Paul Jones
joined Dave Grohl
and his band on the second night of their weekend residency at Wembley Stadium
Although singer Robert Plant
was busy on solo duties in America, it was the first time members of the rock legends had united onstage since their legendary o2 Arena
The one-night-only supergroup came together at the encore of the Foos
' show, performing classics 'Rock'n'Roll'
and 'Ramble On'
returned to the drums in a switchover that saw Foos
drummer Taylor Hawkins
taking lead vocals.Grohl
had teased the possibility of the collaboration throughout the show. Early on, after playing an extended 'This Is A Call'
, saying "We're gonna do something we’ve never done at a Foo Fighters show and it's gonna blow your shit out the door! Tonight this is gonna be the show that we’re gonna be talking about for the next 20 years!"
The second of the biggest-ever Foo Fighters show was impressive in itself, with the band playing hits dating back to their aforementioned debut single on a revolving 'in the round' stage set.
But the whole night was set up for the encore. After leaving the stage following 'Monkey Wrench'
, a clearly emotional Grohl
returned to declare, "playing Wembley Stadium
is an honour, and if we didn’t take advantage of this opportunity, the greatest fucking night in our band’s lives… for all 86,000 of you motherfuckers, it isn’t gonna be any other show."
The rock legends then joined the Foos
for the historic encore. At the end of their stint, Jimmy Page
visibly clung on to his guitar after a member of the road crew ran onstage to relieve him of it. The members of the makeshift band then posed arm to arm.
left the stage before a final encore of 'Best Of You'
, an ecstatic Grohl[/a] shouted "welcome to the greatest fucking day of my life!" The night ended with an extravagant firework display.
Foo Fighters played:
'Times Like These'
'No Way Back'
'Cheer Up Boys, Your Make-Up Is Running'
'Learn To Fly'
