Foo Fighters stream complete 2006 London concert

The Foo Fighters are streaming video of a complete London concert from 2006.

On the road in support of their fifth album, “In Your Honor”, the band’s show at Hyde Park delivered a mix of new songs and classic hits, and featured special guest appearances by Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor.

The London event was released in late 2006, as well as being included as part of the group’s “Skin And Bones” live package.

“Keep washing your hands,” says the band. “#StayHome #FooFriday.”

This past week, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins joined an all-star lineup of UK artists for a new version of the 2002 Foo Fighters classic, “Times Like These”, in support of the global effort to stay safe and stay home during the Coronavirus crisis.

Chris Martin of Coldplay, Ellie Goulding, Royal Blood, Dua Lipa and Rita Ora, among many others, recorded and film their contributions from their own homes before they were compiled by producer Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Stormzy) for an April 23 release as the Stay Home Live Lounge – in honor of the long-running BBC Radio “Live Lounge” series that sees intimate studio versions of hits and covers.

The BBC has released the song as a single, with UK net profits to be combined with any funds raised by The Big Night In; these funds will be split equally between BBC Children In Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to vulnerable people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK who will be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis; International net profits will go towards the WHO’s COVID-19-Solidarity Response Fund.
