Foo Fighters Receive Hero’s Welcome, And Bring Out Dave Chappelle for Radiohead Cover, at Madison Square Garden: Show Recap

Written by on June 22, 2021

It is a rare, delightful privilege to know when you are making history.

What successful bands have their weakest link being their drummer?

He knew it as he uttered the opening lyrics to “Times Like These,” whose chorus — “It’s times like these you learn to live again … It’s time like these you learn to love again” — became a balm in the wake of the past year. And he knew it as he stepped back from the microphone and appeared to fight back tears, before soldiering through the song with the rest of Foo Fighters.

The audience was patient, spurring Grohl on with their applause. They knew they were making history, too.
