Recorded at Hyde Park in London, June 17th 2006, this 76 minute performance sees the Foo Fighters rock through some of their most popular material in front of a massive crowd, quoted in some media as nearly 100,000 people. At the time of this show, the band were touring in support of their excellent double album, In Your Honor. There have been a number of different members come and go in this band, however their current line-up has been the most stable. The musicians performing here include: Dave Grohl (vocals, guitar) Nate Mendel (bass) Taylor Hawkins (drums, vocals on Tie Your Mother Down) Chris Shiflett (guitar) There are a number of highlights that make this show worth seeing. After a blistering performance of Breakout, Dave welcomes Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead) on stage for a rendition of Shake Your Blood, a song on which they collaborated for Dave's Probot project. It is fantastic to see the song performed live, almost as much as it is to see the glee on Dave's face as he shares ... Written by
I'm a biased foo fan have been for ten years now. this concert is a testament to a band firing on all cylinders. from the the opener in your honor i was blown away all the way through to everlong. seeing Lemmy and the queen boys is great. its an incredible concert the English crowd is awesome. Dave grohl is a great entertainer mixing humor with hard rock and melody effortlessly. Taylor Hawkins steals the moment briefly with a great rock cover of tie your mother down with queen guitarist Brian may and drummer Rodger Taylor. as usual Nate Mendel drives the band with great bass work Chris shiflett goes from strength to strength with his guitar work. if you love this band you know all this if you are curious about the band this is a great starting point.
