Concert Review: Foo Fighters & The Struts At Golden 1 Center In Sacramento, CA

Last night (December 2), I attended the Foo Fighters and The Struts concert at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA, and it was an awesome show.

The Struts kicked off the night with a high energy set. Frontman Luke Spiller was like a young Freddie Mercury (Queen) up onstage, and was really good at getting everyone invloved in the performance, even though, as he said, no one was there to see them. Despite the fact that people weren’t there for them, they sure made an impression, and probably gained a lot of new fans. If you have a chance to see them live, it is definetly worth it. Highlights from their set included: “Put Your Money On Me,” “Kiss This,” “One Night Only,” and “Could Have Been Me.”

Once The Struts finished, it was time for Foo Fighters to take the stage. The band put on an amazing three hour show full of tracks spanning their entire catalog. They opened with “Run” from their latest album “Concrete And Gold” before breaking out hits like “All My Life” and “Learn to Fly.” Then they just kept going, before frontman Dave Grohl finally addressed the audience as the set nearly approached the one hour mark. He let everyone know that it was going to be a “long fucking night,” and the crowd couldn’t be happier. Grohl and his band, Nate Mendel (bass), Pat Smear (guitar), Taylor Hawkins (drums), Chris Shiflett (guitar) Rami Jaffee (keyboards) were firing on all cylinders musically, as well as vocally. Grohl’s stage bantar was on point all night as well. The group played about 16-17 tracks before Grohl got to band introductions, which were complete with them rocking snippets of various covers like AC/DC’s “For Those About to Rock,” the “Grease” track “You’re the One That I Want” (which Grohl jokingly said he won’t play anymore after a lady fainted up front), Van Halen’s “Jump,” and the Ramones’ “Blitzkreig Bop.” From there, they cranked out three more songs, before returning backstage before the encore. While back there, the members were shown on a screen asking the audience how many more songs they wanted. They agreed to play three, and wound up playing four more. The show, which included 26 songs by its end, finally wrapped up after they performed their classic track “Everlong.” Highlights of the night were the aforementioned “Everlong,” “The Pretender,” a cover of Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure” with Spiller (The Struts) and Hawkins on vocals, “Monkey Wrench,” “Best Of You,” and covers of AC/DC’s “Let There Be Rock” and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ “Breakdown.”

Foo Fighters Pay Tribute To Malcolm Young (AC/DC) At Mexico City Show

During their set at the Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City last night (November 18), Foo Fighters paid tribute to the late Malcolm Young (AC/DC). Dave Grohl told the crowd that the band were “going to play some rock and roll for Malcolm” and then launched into a cover of “Let There Be Rock” while a photo of Young was shown on the big screen. Later on in the night they also played parts of “Who Made Who” and “The Rocker” while performing “The Pretender.” You can see some footage of that below, along with a penned tribute from Grohl.
