Foo Fighters Play Their ‘Last Show For A Long Time’

Written by Alex Langlands on August 27, 2012

American rockers the Foo Fighters have brought the famous Reading Festival to a close on the weekend. Smashing through an all-hits setlist, Dave Ghrol and the crew dedicated tracks to Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic as they drove the crowd insane. Early in the set, Ghrol addressed the enormous crowd, stating: “Well, well, well. The fucking Reading festival. You guys realise we’ve got a lot of songs to play. It’s the last show of the tour and it’s the last show for a long time.” The Foo Fighters toured Australia in December and received extremely positive reviews.

NME reports that the frontman also acknowledged the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s historic set, with Ghrol announcing: “In 1992 when Nirvana played here, the last show we ever played in England, you sang happy birthday to my mom. Here’s your chance”. To which the crowd began singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Ghrol’s mother. Ghrol dedicated These Days to Cobain, confessing: “I’d like to dedicate this song to a couple of people who couldn’t be here tonight. This one’s for Krist and this one’s for Kurt”.

However long it may be before the Foo Fighters return, it will be eagerly anticipated, with many holding out for a follow-up to their garage-produced album Wasting Light. To get a taste of the madness that was the band’s set, BBC 3 footage is available below for the band’s track All My Life.
