VIDEO: Foo Fighters preview Landmarks Live In Concert special

The Foo Fighters are streaming a preview of their performance from Athens, Greece as featured on an upcoming broadcast of the PBS series “Landmarks Live In Concert.”

Set to air November 10, the program – hosted by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith – mixes interview material with the group’s July 10 show at the ancient Acropolis theater, which was built in 161 AD.

Captured in legendary destinations around the globe, the “artist-driven concert series” bills itself as being “as much about landmarks, as it is the music and the musicians who perform” on the program.

The Foo Fighters debuted a new song, “Arrows”, during the event, which marked the final date of the band’s European tour.

"We've done some crazy things over the last 20 years,” says Dave Grohl, “but I think this might be the craziest thing the Foo Fighters have ever done."

The Foo Fighters will release their ninth album, “Concrete And Gold”, on September 15.

The set was co-produced by the band and Greg Kurstin (Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Sia) and mixed by Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead).

The group will launch the project with a fall US tour that will begin with their own Cal Jam 17 festival at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, CA on October 7.

The band’s salute to the original 1970s California Jam festivals will see them joined by more than a dozen acts, including Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, Japandroids, Wolf Alice, Bob Mould, and more.

The Foos will follow the Cal Jam 17 event with an October 12 performance at the grand opening of the new Washington, DC venue, Anthem, before bringing their live show to arenas across the US, with dates scheduled into December.
