Foo Fighters, the renowned rock band, staged their first solo live performance post the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. The event garnered a large crowd of fans who were all required to have full vaccination against the coronavirus. This condition faced opposition from anti-vaccination protesters outside the venue.

“We’ve been anticipating this day for over a year,” expressed Grohl in a statement ahead of the show. “And Madison Square Garden is in for an exhilarating experience. New York, brace yourselves for a night of intense music and celebration of 26 years of Foos.”

The night featured their classic hits alongside superb cover tracks, with a special appearance by comedian Dave Chappelle as the lead singer for their rendition of Radiohead’s Creep. Further, drummer Taylor Hawkins replaced Dave Grohl for a rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” and the band performed a track from their latest Bee Gees cover album, “Hail Satin.”

During the show, Grohl paused for a moment of reflection. “Did you miss it?” he asked guitarist Pat Smear with a grin, then turning to the crowd. “Me too. I don’t think that we’d be here tonight if it weren’t for a lot of people that helped us get this far.”

The event marked the band’s 26th anniversary, though there was an underlying understanding that it was meant to be their 25th-anniversary celebration, postponed by a year due to the pandemic. The show was also a tribute to the band’s late stage manager, Andy Pollard, who passed away on June 18.
