Foo Fighters Form ‘Super-Duper-Group’ with Queen + Led Zeppelin Members, Play ‘Under Pressure’
After canceling their Glastonbury headlining slot and a string of European tour dates due to Dave Grohl’s leg injury, the Foo Fighters made their triumphant return with their first concert in the U.K. last night (Sept. 5). And they did so in epic fashion, bringing out Queen’s Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin bassist (and Grohl’s Them Crooked Vultures bandmate) John Paul Jones to play “Under Pressure.”
During the Milton Keynes show, Grohl offered his apologies for having to cancel the shows earlier in the summer.
“It’s been about 11 weeks since the incident [when Grohl broke his leg],” the frontman said (via NME). “The last thing I wanted to do was cancel shows. I hate canceling shows. I said, ‘I’ve got to get back there as soon as we f---ing can.’ I’m sorry for making you wait so long. Tonight we’re gonna play some extra long s---, we’re just getting warmed up.”
Later, when the Foos brought out Taylor and Jones for Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure,” Grohl said they were “living out our rock ‘n’ roll fantasy.”
“I don’t know if ya’ll ever seen a supergroup,” Grohl said. “This is a super-duper-group. I don’t even know what to say, because this kind of s--- does not happen every day.”
