Who needs the Iron Throne when you can have a light-up guitar throne?
On Saturday night, the Foo Fighters played their 20th anniversary Fourth of July concert at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington, D.C., celebrating two decades since their debut album. While the band had to cancel the remainder of their European tour last month following frontman Dave Grohl's stage jump that left him with a broken leg, they didn't let that get in the way of giving fans a great show.
Since Grohl's leg was still in a cast on July 4, the singer came up with the idea to perform on a throne made of guitars, lights and amps while keeping his leg elevated. According to Radio.com, Grohl said he thought of the throne while on morphine in the hospital. The end result was pretty incredible:
The band headlined the D.C. show that also featured performances by Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Heart, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip, Trouble Funk and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.
When the Foo Fighters took the stage, they played a handful of favorites including "Everlong," "Learn to Fly," "Monkey Wrench," "All My Life," "Big Me," "Breakout" and "Best of You," as well as a cover of Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure."
