Foo Fighters at Milton Keynes Bowl

Foo Fighters played the first of their two postponed Wembley Stadium shows to a capacity crowd at Milton Keynes Bowl. Opening their two-hour set with a punchy ‘Everlong’, the band powered through songs from their new album, ‘Sonic Highways’, as well as their greatest hits, some oldies, and a few fan requests.  Queen’s Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones guested on a cover of ‘Under Pressure’, but even the rock legends couldn’t upstage Dave Grohl who ruled the night from his throne of guitars.

Support came courtesy of Royal Blood and Iggy Pop.
