Foo Fighters have ushered in the return of arena rock in the U.S this week, performing the first full capacity crowd of 15,000 at New York’s Madison Square Garden since the start of the pandemic.
The rock legends tore through an extensive 24-song setlist that featured many of their classic hits, like “Times Like These,” “The Pretender,” “Learn to Fly,” “My Hero,” and “Monkey Wrench,” plus a selection of covers that included a version of Queen’s “Somebody To Love” with drummer Taylor Hawkins on vocals (see here), a very unlikely cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” with Dave Chapelle on vocals and, perhaps the biggest side-step of all, a buoyant rendition of Bee Gees’ “You Should Be Dancing” with Dave Grohl himself upfront.
While it might seem like a surprising choice, the band recently announced they would be releasing a Bee Gees covers album under their disco alter-ego, The Dee Gees for Record Store Day next month.
You be the judge – are the Foo’s cut out for disco? Check out their rocking rendition of “You Should Be Dancing” at Madison Square Garden below.
