The short film chronicles Foo Fighters’ recent concert at the New York City venue on June 20th. The show marked the venue’s first concert in 466 days due to the pandemic. More than 15,000 fully vaccinated people attended the show. This means it was the first full-capacity show in all of New York since the beginning of the pandemic.
Clocking in just under 10 minutes, the short film features a whole slew of brief interviews. The clip boasts behind-the-scenes workers like bartenders and merch supervisors that brought the show into existence. Of course the film also features footage from the performance, as Foo Fighters play “Everlong” and “Best Of You.”

Ahead of their show at the reopening of Madison Square Garden, Foo Fighters played Los Angeles’ the Canyon Club. At the show, they delivered a full-fledged concert at the intimate, 1,000 person venue. Tickets were only sold in person to attendees who could provide proof of vaccination.
The massive 23-song set featured tracks from their recent album, Medicine At Midnight. It even boasted the live debut of its title track. A standout in the set was a cover of Queen’s “Somebody To Love,” which saw frontman Dave Grohl on drums and Taylor Hawkins on lead vocals.
