Watch the Foo Fighters Hit the Stage for Fourth of July

Injury be damned, at least that was the message Dave Grohl was sending out on the first stop of the Foo Fighters’ North American tour which kicked off on Saturday (July 4) in Washington D.C. in celebration of not only the nation, but also the 20th anniversary of the band’s self-titled, debut record.

Up until last week, the status of the tour was still unknown since Grohl’s infamous fall in Sweden. Fans were beginning to speculate that a cancellation was set to happen, but lo and behold, being the true rock stars that they are, the band decided to go forward with the three-month long tour which will wrap up in early October.

Thanks to several YouTube users, videos from the kick-off show/Fourth of July blow out was uploaded online. Not only do we see the group perform some of their biggest songs, we were also given a look at the new stage set up for the band which includes a rock and roll version of the Game of Thrones Iron Throne for Grohl to sit on during the shows.

Kind of bad-ass.

Instead of playing off the severe injury, Grohl decided to address it directly before beginning on “Big Me.” In his speech to the audience, he explained how it all happened on a “beautiful night like tonight in a stadium full of people” and how he “fell off the fucking stage.” He even played the footage of the fall on the big screen behind the band as he continued to ask the crowd if they saw the video on YouTube.

It’s nice to know that he’s got such a good sense of humor about it because he even replayed it again.

Check out the videos from the show below, but try to ignore the annoying ass commentary on the videos.

Foo Fighters Announce Birthday Bash for Next Summer


When you’ve been a band for 20 years, how else would you celebrate that monumental moment than to throw a big bash with some of your closest music industry friends?

And that’s exactly what the Foo Fighters are planning to do next summer.

Earlier in the day, the band announced they would be throwing a star-studded event in Washington D.C. on July 4th to celebrate their 20th “birthday.”

Independence Day might be big for the United States, but for fans of the Foo Fighters, it marks the exact day that Dave Grohl and company released a record under the name that would go on to become a household name.

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Heart, LL Cool J, Buddy Guy, Clark Grant Jr. and many more have also been announced as performers for the birthday bash. You know, just some of the guys’ friends who happened to appear on their current HBO docu-series Sonic Highways.

Check out the official poster for the event below. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale beginning this Saturday, Nov. 8 at 10 am, so if you have any desire to go to the birthday bash, we’ll advise to be standing in line starting like now.


Neil Diamond to Release Boston Charity Song

After the Boston bombing had affected everybody in the city as well as the surrounding  towns, Neil Diamond knew that he had to do something to bring up the citizens spirits after such a horrific event. Diamond got on a plane and flew to Boston to surprise everyone at that Saturday’s Boston Red Sox game with only a 40-minute heads up.

The Red Sox had adopted the musicians hit song, “Sweet Caroline” as an eighth-inning anthem some time ago and had invited him to perform it live once before, and finally the singer accepted. The bombings happened that Monday, by Friday the lone surviving bomber was caught and on that Saturday, when the eight-inning stretch arrived, as did Diamond to perform the song live instead of the usual pre-recorded version.

When he arrived home after that experience, Diamond went straight to work on a brand new song, dedicated to the city that would eventually become the charity song, “The Freedom Song (They’ll Never Take Us Down).” “I was moved by the unity and the attitude of the people in Boston,” Diamond said. “And that’s really all a songwriter needs, is to be inspired. It doesn’t happen very often but when it does you have to follow that muse and I did.”

“Freedom” is currently scheduled to be released on July 2 through iTunes and Amazon on July 2 and proceeds from the song will go to benefit the Boston One Fund and The Wounded Warriors Project.

The singer will then go on to perform the song live on July 4, in Washington, D.C., at a Washington Nationals vs Milwaukee Brewers baseball game and during PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth” that will be broadcast from the lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

“I didn’t know exactly what would happen with this song, but I did know I had to write it,” Diamond said when asked about his new song.  “So I set out on that creative journey of writing something that would lift people up, lift their spirits in the way that mine was lifted when I flew to Boston to sing at the Red Sox game.”
