Foo Fighters performed an acoustic set during the #SaveOurStages virtual festival on Saturday (October 17) from an empty Troubadour in Los Angeles. The three-day virtual event, which also saw artists including Phoebe Bridgers and Miley Cyrus performing in empty venues around the US, was put on to benefit the National Independent Venue Association’s Emergency Relief Fund. Dave Grohl and company played ‘Skin And Bones’, ‘My Hero’, ‘These Days’, ‘Times Like These’, and ‘Everlong’. Watch the band’s half-hour set below.
It’s not the first time Foo Fighters have showed support for the #SaveOurStages campaign. Last month, the group brought back the original designs of two of their 1995 tour T-shirts to help benefit the initiative, with proceeds from sales going to #SaveOurVenues (from UK sales) and #SaveOurStages (from US sales).
The Foos were supposed to head out on a 25th anniversary tour back in April and May, which was postponed and subsequently cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The band have also updated their 2021 schedule, which you can check out here.
