Foo Fighters have shown their support for bands and venues during COVID-19 through several livestream performances, including on Paul McCartney’s Preservation Jazz Hall event last month. In May, frontman Dave Grohl penned an op-ed for The Atlantic envisioning a triumphant return to live music following the pandemic.
“In today’s world of fear and unease and social distancing, it’s hard to imagine sharing experiences like these ever again,” Grohl wrote. “I don’t know when it will be safe to return to singing arm in arm at the top of our lungs, hearts racing, bodies moving, souls bursting with life. But I do know that we will do it again, because we have to.”
In late April, Grohl surprised an ER nurse (and COVID-19 survivor) with an intimate performance of “Everlong” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He also took part in an all-star rendition of the Foo Fighters song “Times Like These” with Dua Lipa, Chris Martin and Rita Ora.
