During the show, the band played some of their biggest hits as “Big Me,” “The Pretender,” “Learn to Fly,” “Everlong” and of course “Times Like These” which was part of their three song encore.
In the middle of the show, frontman Dave Grohl paid a special tribute to a Richmond legend who sadly passed away back in March from and accidental overdose, GWAR frontman Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie.
“[He gave me] one of the greatest compliments, or non-compliments, I’ve ever gotten in my life,” Grohl began.
“I remember seeing this interview with Dave Brockie where they asked Brockie about [GWAR’s] Grammy nomination, and somehow, he made his way to me and he said, ‘Dave Grohl? He’s actually had teeth removed so he could fit more Grammy dicks in his fucking mouth.’ So, right now, I’ve gotta give t up for Brockie. C’mon, let’s give it up to Brockie.”
It seems like the other members of GWAR were so impressed and touched by Grohl’s tribute to their late leader, they decided not to “kill” the musician.
Guess he dodged a bullet there.
