Foo Fighters fans jazzed to catch the 11-time Grammy winners during their current fall tour of North America can whet their appetite with a live HD performance of their single "The Pretender.” The video footage was recorded on July 10 in Athens, Greece, at the historic Acropolis during their 2017 summer tour of Europe and will be part of an upcoming PBS docu-series “Landmarks Live in Concert.”
The Seattle alt-rockers premiered the live trailer clip on Oct. 25 via Rolling Stone. The concert was the “Learn to Fly” hitmakers' first-ever show in Greece and the excitement was captured live by PBS in their latest thematic spin on the long-running series “Great Performances.”
The 9:07-minute video opens with charismatic frontman Dave Grohl playing the role of cheerleader, encouraging the capacity crowd to wave their arms in the air. The camera segues between the stage, the crowd and aerial shots, capturing the beauty of the ancient stone venue as Grohl sings, “Keep you in the dark/You know they all pretend/Keep you in the dark/And so it all began.”
Foo Fighters' episode of “Landmarks Live in Concert” will air on Nov. 10 via PBS. For more information, click here. Fans can check out the full performance of “The Pretender” above.
