VIDEO: Watch Foo Fighters Live On Letterman webcast

Foo Fighters kicked out the jams Tuesday night with a live webcast from the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York.

The event, part of the Live On Letterman webcast series, helped launch the new Foo album, “Wasting Light,” on the day of its release.

The Foos don’t do anything half-way, and they went full throttle into their performance. With a salute to the hallowed ground of The Beatles’ 1964 Sullivan appearances, the webcast kicked off in black and white, while The Foos – dressed in Beatles-like suits – played on a retro-60s vibe stage set.

Following the pattern of their club gigs to date, the Foos barreled through “Wasting Light” from front to back, before playing a 45-minute greatest hits set. The producers did it up right, too: the Foos were in black and white for the new album, and the signal switched to colour for the hits portion.

Dave Grohl spoke about the unbelievable heat in wearing the Beatles outfits and, midway through the show, took his shoes off because he said they were killing him.
