The Foo Fighters played Concorde 2 in Brighton on Wednesday as the first of three club shows in the UK this week, and video of the performance is available.

The band – who appeared as The Holy Shits – tore through a 19-song set that featured songs from their 20-year career.

The series of club shows preview the Foo Fighters’ headlining appearance at the closing concert of the Invictus Games in London this Sunday.

The September 14 event at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will see the Foos top a bill that includes 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 will take 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, which is championed by Prince Harry, will be 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.
