165,000 tickets sold and more than four hours of music later, FOO FIGHTERS have now immortalized their biggest ever headline stand: FOO FIGHTERS: LIVE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM, an 18-song DVD and Blu-Ray document of their two sold out Wembley Stadium shows, will be released November 18th.
The Wembley concerts, which took place Friday and Saturday June 6 and 7 of this year, sold out within 24 hours, making them the biggest headline performances of the band’s illustrious career–as well as the biggest rock shows staged at the new Wembley Stadium to date.
FOO FIGHTERS: LIVE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM is a career-spanning live opus, drawing on all six of Foo Fighters’ studio albums, featuring Dave Grohl (vocals/guitar), Taylor Hawkins (drums/vocals), Nate Mendel (bass) and Chris Shiflett (guitar) ripping through classics “Times Like These,” “Everlong,” “Monkey Wrench,” “All My Life” and “Learn To Fly” as well as new live staples including “Long Road To Ruin.” Elsewhere the core FF four are joined by co-founding FF guitarist Pat Smear, keyboardist Rami Jaffee, violinist/cellist Jessy Greene and percussionist Drew Hester on the DVD’s blazing opener “The Pretender” as well as a semi-acoustic mid-set section featuring intimate versions of “My Hero,” the Grohl-penned Nirvana B-Side “Marigold,” Hawkins’ lead vocal turn on “Cold Day In The Sun” and more.
Like the Wembley weekend, FOO FIGHTERS: LIVE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM concludes with a triumphant and highly emotional “Best Of You” with a closing chorus of 85,000 fans leaving Grohl visibly moved.
Early on in the evening’s festivities, Grohl asked the crowd “How did this band get so f***ing big?” By the close of the weekend, 165,000 people knew the answer. And now with the release of FOO FIGHTERS: LIVE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM, so will you.
