VIDEO: Foo Fighters headline Invictus Games closing ceremony

The Foo Fighters headlined the closing concert of the Invictus Games in London on Sunday and video from the event is available.

Introduced by Invictus Games patron Prince Harry, the band performed an 11-song greatest hits set, opening with 2002’s “All My Life” and closing with fan favorite “Everlong.”

The September 14 event at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park saw the Foos top a bill that included Kaiser Chiefs, Ellie Goulding, Ryan Adams, The Vamps, James Blunt and others.

The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women. Over 400 competitors from 14 nations took part in this year’s games, which use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country.

The event, championed by Prince Harry, is a celebration of resilience and passion. The Games will shine a spotlight on Armed Forces personnel and veterans who have put their lives on the line for their country demonstrating how they and their families are valued, respected and supported.

The Foo Fighters will release their new album, “Sonic Highways”, on November 10.
