Great show despite Dave Grohl struggling with his vocals at times because of a cold. Favorite moment was when Krist Novoselic came out and they played Molly's Lips. It was great to see him bouncing around on stage while playing like he did when he was playing bass in Nirvana.
I thought last year's Gorge show couldn't be topped. WRONG. The Safeco Field show was utterly amazing. While Dave's vocals were stronger last year, this concert took showmanship to a new level. They played the audience like an instrument. The set list was a composition until itself, rising, falling, hitting amazing crescendos, with pauses for effect, all perfectly timed. I've seen some amazing bands over 30 years, but I'm not sure anyone has mastered balancing the music with the "show" like Foo Fighters.
They rocked! Love Dave. Great interaction with the crowd. The sound in the stadium was hit and miss though. Seemed to take the first 2-3 songs before it was pretty much dialed in. Then, still had a song, or two, that we're iffy.
overall, the show itself was great! The only thing that continues to trouble me is the venue. everybody knows that Wrigley Field is a baseball stadium, it was never made to hold concerts and make music actually sound good. it's just troubling to know that bands will still go to this place for the nostalgic sake and people will still flock there and the sound will be mediocre at best.
Yeah dude the concert was good, managed to get there just as Foos got on stage which was pretty rad, but their sound equipment was in two tents in the crowd, which partially blocked my view of the stage throughout the performance, hence why it wasn’t 5 stars. Only other thing I would’ve liked was if they’d’ve played more actual songs instead of over-extending every song into a jam, but that’s whatever. Didn’t even play Big Me, and I’d’ve killed to hear Winnebago
