Foo Fighters make triumphant return with Game of Thrones-style throne and Dave Grohl’s mom

on July 05, 2015, 1:43pm

Less than a month after Dave Grohl fell off a stage in Sweden and shattered his legFoo Fighters were back in action. The band celebrated the 20th anniversary of its debut album with a massive concert at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC featuring performances from Heart, Joan Jett, Gary Clark Jr., Buddy Guy, and others.

The biggest highlight, of course, was Foo Fighters’ headlining set. With his leg still in a cast, Grohl sang and played guitar from a giant light-up throne in the style of the Iron Throne from Games of Thrones (in lieu of swords, the throne was adorned with guitars).

Another notable moment came when Grohl brought his mother Virginia to the stage prior to performing “For All the Cows”. Grohl grew up near the Washington, DC area in Northern Virginia where his mother was a high school English teacher.

Watch fan-shot performance footage and see the full 24-song setlist below.
