The concert took place earlier this year on June 20, marking the venue’s first concert in 466 days. It brought together more than 15,000 people – all of whom had to prove they were fully vaccinated before entry – marking the first full-capacity concert in a New York arena since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to their best-known hits, the concert also saw the band perform more recent tracks from their 2021 album âMedicine At Midnightâ.
They also performed surprise covers, including a Dave Chappelle-assisted interpretation of Radiohead‘s “Creep”. They also gave their cover of “You Should Be Dancing” by the Bee Gees, which they initially teased as part of an upcoming release under their disco alter-ego, The Dee Gees.
With just under three hours, you can watch the entire show below:
Two days before the event, longtime band manager Andy Pollard died. The group dedicated the performance to Pollard, who was their stage manager for 12 years.

The concert was not without controversy, as protesters rallied outside Madison Square Garden to oppose the group’s policy of only performing in front of fully vaccinated audiences.
Earlier this month, the Foo Fighters were forced to cancel their scheduled concert at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi to mark the end of the Formula 1 season due to “unforeseen medical circumstances”.
The squad were due to play after the end of the exciting but controversial race on December 12, which saw Red Bull driver Max Verstappen overtake Mercedes ‘Lewis Hamilton on the final lap to claim victory in the Drivers’ Championship.
Event organizers confirmed the Foos were “unable to travel” due to “unforeseen medical circumstances” but provided no further details on the medical issue.
Martin Garrix and DJ Snake performed at Yas Marina Circuit instead of the band. The Foo Fighters’ last concert was in Fresno, Calif. On December 9.
