Foo Fighters plays “Last Show for a Long Time”

Foo Fighters reportedly ruffled some feathers in Belfast, Northern Ireland earlier this month due to the volume of their performance. The rockers hit the stage at the Tennent’s Vital festival in Belfast’s Osborne Park and hundreds of nearby residents lodged noise complaints during the event.
All together 120 citizens reportedly filed complaints with the Belfast City Council while another 20 called the police. The band appears unfazed by the complaints, however, offering a glib response via Facebook.
Dave Grohl and company invoked none other than rock gods AC/DC – “A wise man once said . . . Rock and Roll ain’t noise pollution. Rock and Roll ain’t gonna die.”
In other news, Foo Fighters are one of the many bands to be featured in the latest iteration of the Rock Band franchise, Rock Band Blitz. Harmonix, the game’s creator, says PlayStation users should expect the release on Aug. 28, while Xbox users should expect it the following day.

The Foo Fighters “played their final show for a long time” as they closed this weekend’s Reading festival on Sunday night -August 26.
The band headlined the bill for a mammoth 26-song set, which included classic hits “These Days”, “Rope” and “My Hero”.
Taking to the stage, frontman Dave Grohl said – “Well, well, well. The f**king Reading festival. You guys realise we’ve got a lot of songs to play. It’s the last show of the tour and it’s the last show for a long time.”
During the three hour set, Grohl also took time to dedicate track ‘These Days’ to former bandmates Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic – “I’d like to dedicate this song to a couple of people who couldn’t be here tonight. This one’s for Krist and this one’s for Kurt.”
This year’s Reading festival also saw headline slots from Kasabian and The Cure along with the likes of Florence & The Machine, Odd Future and Paramore.

Dave Grohl won’t be wasting any more light on tour.
Twenty years after Nirvana’s last show in England, the Foo Fighters closed out the Reading Festival in Leeds last night—and, according to Grohl, it was the Grammy-winning rockers’ final concert for the forseeable future.
Grohl, apparently in a nostalgic mood, dedicated the band’s respective performances of “Walk” and “Monkey Wrench” to his daughters Violet and Harper – according to NME, and then gave a shout-out to former Nirvana mates Krist Novoselic and the late Kurt Cobain before launching into “These Days.”
The 43-year-old family man also got the audience to since “Happy Birthday” to his mother, noting that the crowd gathered to see Nirvana at the fest in 1992 did the same.
“Here’s your chance” – he said as the crowd duly burst into song.
Foo Fighters closed their 26-song set with “Everlong.” But it’s up to Grohl and the rest of the band—fresh from winning five Grammys for Wasting Light this year—as to whether things can ever be this good again.
