It’s difficult to remember a time when Foo Fighters weren’t automatic festival headliners, but back in 2001 they hadn’t yet gravitated to bill topping status.
Here at everyone’s favourite Virgin commercial they proved themselves ready to step up. It was as entertaining a performance as you’ll see, filled with hits and Dave Grohl’s trademark, ‘Aww, isn’t he nice’ banter. The Foos blew the day’s headliners, Red Hot Chili Peppers, out of the water.
Of course, it didn’t help that the Chilis choose this show to begin their descent from sock-cocked funk masters into tiresome MOR jam band.
