165,000 tickets sold; more than four hours of music; and one encore with Jimmy Page & John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin later; Foo Fighters have now immortalized for posterity their biggest ever headline stand - 'Live at Wembley Stadium', an 18-song DVD documenting their two sold out Wembley Stadium shows.
The Wembley concerts, which took place Friday & Saturday June 6 + 7 2008, sold out within 24 hours, making them the biggest headline performances of the band's illustrious career - as well as the biggest rock shows staged at the new Wembley to date.
'Live at Wembley Stadium' is a career-spanning live opus, drawing on all six of Foo Fighters' studio albums, featuring classics "Times Like These"; "Everlong"; "Monkey Wrench"; "All My Life"; and "Learn to Fly" as well as new live staples including "Long Road to Ruin".
The DVD also includes the aforementioned night two's historic encore, for which Jimmy Page & John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin joined Dave Grohl & Taylor Hawkins for renditions of "Rock and Roll" (with Taylor on vocals & Dave on drums) and "Ramble On" (with Dave & Taylor swapping places).
Like the Wembley weekend, 'Live at Wembley Stadium' concludes with a triumphant & highly emotional "Best of You" with a closing chorus of 85,000 fans leaving Dave visibly moved.
