Faith No More Tease Foo Fighters’ ‘All My Life’ at Belgian Festival
Glastonbury wasn’t the only music festival Foo Fighters canceled on after Dave Grohl suffered a serious leg injury: The band was also scheduled to perform June 25th at Belgium’s Rock Werchter Festival before Grohl’s surgery nixed the Foo Fighters’ slot. But much like Florence and the Machine made sure Foo Fighters’ presence was felt at Glastonbury, Faith No More paid tribute to Rock Werchter’s absent Thursday night headliners by providing a quick rendition of “All My Life.”
Faith No More’s Mike Patton delivered a pummeling version of the One by One track before the Foo Fighters song slowly devolved into a cover of the Trashmen’s “Surfin’ Bird.” After finishing off the surf rock classic, Faith No More segued into more familiar territory: Angel Dust‘s “Midlife Crisis.” Faith No More’s Rock Werchter gig was the band’s third show in a string of six concerts over six days where the Sol Invictus group traveled from Germany to Belgium to Sweden to Finland and finally to Denmark.
The Rock Werchter and Glastonbury performances were also, as of now, Foo Fighters’ final canceled concerts following Grohl’s leg surgery. The band is scheduled to perform next at Washington, D.C.’s RFK Stadium on July 4th, kicking off a long stretch of touring that won’t conclude until a November 19th concert in Barcelona, Spain. Along the way, Foo Fighters will make a pair of visits to the Austin City Limits festival alongside baseball stadiums like New York’s Citi Field, Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
