Foo Fighters stream Madison Square Garden re-opening concert replay

The Foo Fighters are streaming video of their full Madison Square Garden re-opening concert for a limited time.

The June 20 event saw the band deliver the first 100% full capacity concert at the iconic venue since a March 2020 50th anniversary tribute performance by the surviving members of The Allman Brothers Band.

Playing in support of their latest album, “Medicine At Midnight”, the Foo Fighters performed for nearly three hours to an enthusiastic crowd, while Dave Grohl shared his thoughts on the concert's historic nature.

"For the last year, I had this recurring dream that I would walk onstage and we would look at each other for the first time and it would take a couple minutes and we'd just look at each other like, ‘Thank god we got through this,'" Grohl told the audience during "Best Of You." "I walked out onstage tonight and it was just like that f**king dream. So thank you very much everybody for making my dream come true tonight."

Comedian Dave Chappelle was the evening’s surprise guest, sitting in to sing a cover of the Radiohead classic, “Creep”.

The Foos dedicated the MSG show to their longtime stage manager Andy Pollard, who passed away just two days prior to the concert.
