Watch Foo Fighters cover Queen during first full live show since beginning of COVID-19 pandemic


Foo Fighters made their full return to the live concert stage Tuesday night with a last-minute show at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California.

The set included a special, eight-minute cover of the Queen classic “Somebody to Love,” with drummer Taylor Hawkins singing lead vocals and Dave Grohl returning to the position he held in Nirvana behind the kit. Is there an extended drum solo? Does Hawkins hit that iconic falsetto note? You’d better believe it.

You can watch fan-shot footage of the performance streaming now on YouTube.

According to Setlist.fm, Tuesday’s show also included renditions of several Foos classics, as well as cuts off their new album, Medicine at Midnight, which was released in February.

Grohl and company have played a number of streaming events over the past year, as well as the Global Citizen Vax Live special last month, but Tuesday’s concert marked the band’s first full in-person concert since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

The live Foos train continues with a headlining set at New York City’s Madison Square Garden this Sunday, June 20. It’s the famed arena’s first full show back since the pandemic began.
