The latest music series from PBS, titled “Landmarks Live in Concert”, brought the Foo Fighters to Greece earlier this summer. The band recorded a live concert for the series from one of the most historic places in the world, the Acropolis of Athens. The venue dates back to 161AD. Don’t worry about the math on that, it’s old.
“We’ve done some crazy things over the last 20 years, but I think this might be the craziest thing the Foo Fighters have ever done,” Grohl said in a press statement of the concert, which took place just this past July.
Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer, Chad Smith, is the show’s current host liked what he saw. “The Acropolis hasn’t been rocked that hard in a while — maybe 2500 hundred years, give or take. It was an amazing experience, made extra special that I could spend it with my longtime friends, the mighty Foos.”
The show is set to air on November 10th so mark your calendars.
