Foo Fighters fans who missed their TV performance on the June 21 episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden" can check out streaming footage of the 11-time Grammy winners performing their 2005 single “Best of You.” The legendary Seattle alt-rockers appeared as music guest on the popular CBS late-night talk show ahead of a massive two-night stand, which will take place from June 22 – June 23 in London at London Stadium.
Consequences of Sound reports on June 22 that “The Late Late Show” episode was part of series of special shows being filmed by host James Corden in London at Central Hall Westminster. FF frontman Dave Grohl chatted briefly with Corden during the show, which also featured actress Sophie Turner and an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” with Paul McCartney.
In the 4:03 minute video clip, the London audience roars in recognition as Grohl launches into the opening rhythm guitars intro and familiar lyrics to the chart-topping rock anthem. The charismatic singer leads fans acoustically through the slow-building first verse and chorus before the song explodes in the second verse with Grohl singing, “I needed somewhere to hang my head/Without your noose.”
Foo Fighters will return home next month to launch their second North American tour leg, which kicks off July 6 in Columbia, Md., at Merriweather Post Pavilion and wraps up Oct. 18 in St. Paul, Minn., at Xcel Energy Center. The summer romp is in continued support of their 9th studio album Concrete and Gold.
The “Everlong” hitmakers recently announced a lengthy list of support artists for the summer romp, which includes acts like The Struts, The Joy Formidable and Gang of Youths, among others. Grab your Foo Fighters tickets now at AXS.
